The New You & Lu!

Notice something different??? We have a new name! Welcome to the new YOU & LU. 

Sometimes, change is necessary. It’s a sign of growth. A sign of hope. A sign of celebration.

… and that’s EXACTLY why Lauren’s Lyst needed a re-birth. If you’ve been following along with me since the start, you’ll remember this space started solely as a personal diary documenting my quarter-life. Over the past year, however, YOU supported me in making this my full-time job. I brought on Katie as my content director and started spilling my secrets on all things style, wellness + DIYs.


YOU continued reading. YOU continued celebrating. YOU continued asking for more.

This isn’t just about me. It’s about us. Hence, the name change to YOU & LU [a nickname of mine].

You & Lu is a destination for creating an accessibly chic lifestyle with ease.



We’ll find meaning in the most mundane moments. And, of course, I’ll still share my life + travels with you. The door is open.



With a new name comes new ideas. Expect to see a lot more video beginning in March, and something fun you’ll be able to SHOP for later this Spring.

Wander around here for awhile. Tell your friends. And have a glass of bubbly with me tonight.

I’m so grateful to you.
