The articles

The La.Rue Articles are a collection of years worth of advice, thoughts, and musings gathered together to inspire women entrepreneurs to live an intentional life and build intentional businesses

Lauren created the Articles (formally known as the blog) over three years ago. The Articles were originally developed as a space for Lauren to share her experiences and employ her voice to create a narrative that was all her own. Documenting her journey with intentional living and entrepreneurship, her dreams grew and her business expanded.

As time went on, Lauren nurtured her intentional living journey, carrying aspects of it over into every facet of her business, including the blog. She used that opportunity to create an ongoing journal of being a woman in entrepreneurship with the desire to combine intentionality under both umbrellas of life and business. The La.Rue Articles are curated with various topics, including intentional living, lifestyle development, entrepreneurship, and personal stories from Lauren. Our hope in sharing this collection of articles is to empower you with the tools, resources, and community to live an intentional life and run an intentional business.

Since the start of this year, I’ve felt a disconnect between my mind and body connection. There’s not a particular experience or moment I can describe that caused this disconnect. I think it’s actually more simple than that. I think it’s just one of those times where I outgrew these habits, routines, and practices I […]

Wellness into a Busy Schedule

Even as someone who’s been living intentionally and practicing this lifestyle for almost four years now, I still find it challenging to fit it into my day-to-day. In the early years, it was easier because all I was doing was focusing on intentional living. I had all the time in the world to focus on […]

Change Your Life in 2023

Blind Leap of Faith

We’ve talked time and time again, both on the blog and the podcast, about following your gut, trusting in Divine Timing, all of the wonderful things that can lead us to wonderful decisions. But I feel like we’ve missed something: a blind leap of faith. You see, when we’re scared, we tend to wrap ourselves […]

Trust Your Intuition

explore more

Our intuition is our immediate reaction or understanding to a situation or information presented to us. Our intuition isn’t necessarily a factual interpretation, but rather an emotional or physical response to a scenario unfolding; a gut instinct. So why don’t we always trust our intuition? Why do we turn to outside opinions or sources of […]

High Energy Vibrations

Write | Inspire | Dream Another year around the sun. It’s been a year of growth, learning, and expansion. I think people reflect on their birthdays in one of two ways. One: We feel a sense of accomplishment and excitement for the day and walk into it feeling like a new year of opportunity is […]

Self- Compassion

Write | Inspire | Dream Having compassion is something I don’t think many people struggle with. Having self-compassion is something I think everyone struggles with. Most people I’ve met in my life have a great capacity for having compassion and empathy for others. They can—on as deep a level they can reach—have compassion and understanding […]

Press the Reset Button

Write | Inspire | Dream Even those who live intentionally and with great purpose for each day will reach a moment when they need to press the metaphorical reset button. Intentional Living doesn’t remove us from the negativity in the world and in our lives. It simply gives us a more supportive toolset to get […]

How to Change Your Routine

Write | Inspire | Dream As hard as we all try to stick to our intentional routines every day, we know that life can happen. We go on vacations, get sick, things come up; we have to make adjustments so we don’t fall out of our routines completely, but we’re not pushing ourselves too hard. […]

Write | Inspire | Dream Self-Sabotage happens when the logical side of you is at odds with the emotional side of you. In simple terms, one side of you says you can while the other says you can’t.

Behind The Articles

The Articles were the first content platform to launch at La.Rue. Lauren spent most of her time nurturing the blog and building out a wide variety of content. If you’ve followed the Blog (now Articles) for a while, you may have noticed the dramatic shift in content about a year into its inception. Like many, Lauren faced fears in launching an online forum where she would openly, honestly, and candidly share her experiences with the world. It took some time to open up and shift the content to focus on healing, mindset building, and lifestyle changes. And now, the collection of the La.Rue Articles serves as documentation of one person’s growth, and the musing she serves that aid in the growth of the masses. 

Who They Serve

The La.Rue Articles are for women on the journey to heal their mind to live a more intentional life. Lauren built La.Rue on the belief that women can “have it all.” As entrepreneurs, we’re taught that we have to give up our personal lives for our business to succeed. That we have to delicate everything we have for the potential to reach success. But, Lauren believed there was a way to have both. To live an intentional life and build an intentional and successful business. Lauren nurtured her belief in this over time, documenting her journey on intentionality every step of the way. Every single article she’s written has been for the women who do (or want to) believe in the same. The La.Rue Articles are for every women entrepreneur seeking to build an successful business while maintaining an intentional life.
