About Lauren Elizabeth Aiken
Early on, Lauren credits her sense of fashion, influence, style, & grooming to both her father and mother.
My father brought me up watching films from the 1920’s-1960’s. He always felt the need to educate me on the entertainment industries music & acting moguls. I gained a lot of my sense of influence from these past old Hollywood generations. At age 10, it was a defining moment for me when I first watched Truman Capote’s “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” starring Audrey Hepburn & George Peppard. I loved how Audrey was so classy & sophisticated. I remember thinking to myself, ” I want to always be known as someone who dresses very stylish & classy.” From that point on, “I literally mirrored Audrey’s style throughout my childhood years, as funny as that sounds.” Of course, adding my vintage-modern day twist to it.”
My mother, on the other hand, taught me to always “dress to impress” and never leave the house without my makeup on! I remember her always using her Mary Kay skincare & makeup products-as she understood the importance of using a good quality skincare & make-up brand. “First impressions are everything”- she would say, and “it doesn’t cost alot to look good.” Even though we did not have a lot of money, we would often go on shopping sprees to vintage & discount clothing stores. It was just what we did and still do for fun as a mother-daughter outing to this day.
Both my parents evenly played a role into the person that I am today.
So thank you Mom & Dad & I love you both!- Lauren
I want to first and foremost thank my Lord Jesus Christ who is my Savior! Without God, none of this would be possible! I have learned and grown so much as a person and it is because of my faith and walk with God that I have reached the success I have been encountering throughout my life. While life is never perfect, I have had many trials & tribulations, but I do have God to rely on to get me through the dark times and rejoice when things are going right! I would like to share one of my favorite Bible verses with you.
“For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you, and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” –Jeremiah 29:11
I would like to dedicate this website & thank my amazing soon-to-be fiancé Vincent for not only being my best friend, lover, and partner, but for being my Rock! I want to thank him for always believing in me and for his continual support and growth in my life. If it wasn’t for him, I would not be where I am at today. And I truly believe in finding your soul mate out there in this world, and I am very blessed & thankful to have found mine! I love our “love story” and i’m excited for what our future, holds! I love you so much from the bottom of my heart, Vincent!
I would also like to dedicate this website to my brother- Davey “aka” DJ- who is not only my best friend – but my amazing -only brother whom has been there for me & supported me since day 1. Even though he is only two years younger than I – i have learned so much from him & have the up most respect for him both personally & professionally.
