It’s me, Lauren! As some of you might know, I’m an engineer by day, but my real passion revolves around my faith and travel. I’ve always been crazy about getting on a plane, train or cruise ship. It must’ve been embedded in me through my parents who are also travel nuts. So far (at 24) I’ve made it to 32 countries on 4 continents, and I have so much more planned out for the next few years so I really hope you can tag along and share your journey with me as well!
If you haven’t noticed already, my photog is my man, the love of my life, Jason Meng (@jasonmengvisuals). Together, we’ve grown tremendously in our hobbies and he’s even managed to make a career out of his! I’m only here, writing on my own website, because of how much he inspired me to create something of my own.
Just like Jason inspired me, my ultimate goal with this blog is to encourage YOU to find your purpose, to find your passions: to create your very own lighthouse.

“I had the pleasure of collaborating with Lauren and what I truly appreciate about her is the way she’ll care for your brand. She listens and takes the time to understand how she can genuinely connect her followers to a featured destination. She takes the initiative to take a deep dive and learn how she can further uplift her collaborators whilst providing light-hearted and enjoyable blog posts to her readers. Lauren’s approach is authentic, aspirational and with grace. The bespoke images that she and her partner Jason take are undeniably stunning and well-thought of, yet still respectful to the natural beauty of the subject – never over filtered. Working with them both was such a breeze!”

“We had the pleasure of hosting Lauren and her partner Jason in Raw Bar to share some cocktails & small plates while creating some content to help promote the outlet. We collaborated on a giveaway to help increase awareness & visits to the restaurant & Lauren wrote a really good blog piece about her experience, the food and the cocktails. The photos she took were high quality, engaging and stylized to fit our brand, which allowed us to share them on our channels. We would certainly recommend working with Lauren again in the future on similar projects.“
