Hello there Rachel Lately readers!

My name is Lauren and I run the blog Someone Like You–a blog I’ve had for five and a half years now! My blog has seen me through a lot. High school, break ups, going away to college, studying in Florence Italy, and now it’s come with me to the Big Apple! I’m a fashion merchandising student back in Ohio, and this summer I am interning in the city with Seventeen and Cosmopolitan Magazines.It’s been a dream come true and sometimes I definitely feel like a Jenny Humphrey in a Blair Waldorf world!

I am a ready to wear intern in the fashion closet; which is HUGE and doesn’t even include accessories. Basically, the magazines only borrow all of the clothing from PR firms and brands so it must be checked in and out of the closet for records. That’s my job! I’m constantly at work checking in new items (it feels like Christmas to open all the package of beautiful clothes!), and then sending them back to their correct homes once the editors are finished with them. I also assist the editors with various tasks, and was able to go on a photo shoot that will be in the September issue of Cosmo which was so surreal! I’ve been so very lucky to have this internship and be able to move to New York.

 I had never even visited before moving here and have just fallen in love. When something is right, it just feels perfect and that’s how New York has been for me. Never stop chasing your dreams– with enough hard work and dedication they can always come true!

Thanks so much for having me Rachel & thanks you all for reading! x

With much love, Lauren.
