All i know is that you're so nice
You're the nicest thing I've seen
I wish you couldn't figure me out
But you always wanna know what I was about..

The Little Things & 2011

One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this:
To rise above the little things.

This year, now passing.. I conquered my 2010 resolution to shoot my first magazine cover.

Shot by photographer Jonathan Leder for the Summer Issue Jacques Magazine 2010.

Your amazing energy should help you visualize what you want out of the year to come. It's the perfect time to draw up a list of goals, even if it's exactly what everyone else around you is doing.

NOW, whats next?

Start imagining your goals for not just 2011 but for Life.
Dream up those big ideas for what makes you happy & find success within them walls.

I know what lauren wants, seeing the road before me
I dive into the world .

A shadow, which one stands in, also endures the path you walk on for A brighter tomorrow.

Glory to God in highest heaven,
Who unto man His Son hath given;
While angels sing with tender mirth,
A glad new year to all the earth.
Martin Luther

Happy New Year to all out there able to comprehend the internet & my blog these days. (giggles)
I shot for Jonathan Leder a little while back for Mirage Magazine and Jacques Magazine. Here are some shots from the shoot. With Jonathan's old fashioned ways of capturing a subject he sees in his own creative brooklyn mind, here is the beautiful photographs he took of me.
Make sure to pick up a JACQUES Magazine near you, he shoots for the quarterly magazine all year round.

A Scorpio's Horoscope, for Today in Philadelphia.

Driving into the heart of Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love, I feel as if one belongs somewhere it could definitely be here.
And people here actually have some sense of driving skills unlike Los Angeles where 6 lanes of cars and pollution sit in pointless traffic because some namebrand trophy wife can't make a left. So anyway... Moving on. I decided to read my horoscope today and I really liked it ( maybe I'll even like it on facebook )

Sharing from me to you

If you've ever sat along a shoreline and watched the ocean, you've seen the tide go out and then come in again. As it travels out to sea it brings along the small treasures that were scattered in the shallows, like bits of sea glass and tiny shells. When it returns it brings new treasures. Your tide may be out right now, Scorpio, but it's definitely coming in again and soon. Look for things to begin working for you in a better and more productive way, and look for a collection of new treasures to inhabit your life. Your prospects for financial gain will soon be much, much better.

Pulled over on the road as my friend stops in the store I think to myself man on a beach? Right now? If only I had my own personal jet I'd be in Fiji with friends. What's the ultimate dream? What's your beach you'd love to lounge on and eat cookies? Anywhere can be an escape.

So goodluck fellow scorpions on a shoreline looking at all the wonders of this world and here's my link to my ELITE portfolio for Job Bookings

P.S. Shouldn't Text & Drive, but will.

Jazzy & Sheeeit

I ate a lot of green Christmas coOkies tonight.
I enjoy good friends that are my family.
Dreaming of a day when we all succeed together,
And being curious of what it all takes to get that

Sweet rose words from the Vanella geisha
She draws at night and plays in the dark

He jams all day in his basement
Bringing on the chaos with his spin sets

And i wander in dreams of life
What it is, and what it could be ?
But who knows when you can be happy with what you've got.

Clouds of fluffernutter sandwiches
& rolled fancy' cigarettes talking like I'm from London.

Hello, my name is Lauren Young, I come from a land down under or maybe... From above? Oh the moon is full like Santas big belly on Christmas Hehe
