Lauren Ignited is your fun, friendly Houston friend who is obsessed (in a fabulous way) with events. One of my most favorite things to do is suggest events to friends that I just know they will love. So, after years of emailing links, texting details and mentioning parties to people, I thought it was about time I created a blog to house all my recommendations. All of the events featured on Lauren Ignited are personally selected by myself and primarily feature local Houston artists, musicians, non-profits and small businesses. I believe strongly in the #SLGT movement and this site is one way that I am contributing. From time to time, I will also include blog posts that are a bit more personal or creative in nature. All events can be found on the Calendar page even if I am unable to write a full blog post for an event.
In addition to attending events, I have had the pleasure to host, coordinate, write for, consult and/or be a part of numerous projects including The First Annual Texas Beer Fest, 2nd Annual Noah’s Kitchen Chili Cookoff, The Encouragement Project Random Acts of Kindness video, The Girly Fight Nice Things Project, and the ‘What’s Yours?’ I Dare You to Dream Party! In my spare time, I love to bake, relax with friends and take my fetch-crazy Border Collie, Napoleon, to Boneyard.
Connect with me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Flickr. Feel free to share an upcoming event with me by sending a tweet, posting to the Lauren Ignited Facebook wall or by shooting an email to LaurenIgnited@gmail.com! I’d love to hear from you!
