So I'm Lauren. I'm an LJ veteran, and I've had various accounts over the years, but I took a break from 2013-2016, and have just created a new journal, so I'm looking for new friends. Here's what you need to know:
I'm 30, I'm married to a wonderful man and I have a one month old daughter called Eloise. I'm a pretty opinionated and stubborn vegan feminist, but I'm kind-hearted and good at listening to people and making friends. I identify as pansexual/queer but my sexuality has been fairly fluid over the years so I'm not too strict about labels. I have had an anxiety disorder for as long as I can remember, but I try not to let it define me.
I'm super feminine and I love anything Disney, pink or floral. I go to Disneyworld or Disneyland Paris whenever I can, and I love fashion and shopping. I'm addicted to tattoos and feel like my body is a canvas in progress. I have a tattoo of Belle from Beauty and the Beast, one of the Powerpuff girls, and about 16 others as well. I'm also a hardcore Potterhead, and Slytherin according to Pottermore, but I have Ravenclaw tendencies and I identify strongly with Hermione because I'm a bookworm/nerd. Speaking of that, I have a degree in English Lit, a Masters in Victorian Lit, and I work in a college library, but I'm currently on maternity leave and I'm considering a change in career - my dream is to work with children, so I'm currently seeking voluntary experience in that field.
My favourite musical artists are the likes of Florence and the Machine, Tori Amos, Belle & Sebastian, Biffy Clyro, and I love plastic pop like Taylor Swift and Katy Perry too. I'm a huge film nerd, and my favourite director is Sophia Coppola. I'm heavily into RuPaul's Drag Race, and various other TV shows. I spend a lot of time binge-watching shows on Netflix while looking after my daughter.
Add me if you wish - I'm open to friends of all sorts! Oh, and this is my face:
