Dear Reader,

You, yes you.

Getting all serious for a second…want you to know: YOU make up The Skinny Confidential Community…& holy shit: THANK YOU!!

This was a year full of excitement, interesting personal growth ( jaw surgery!! ), & a couple of fun professional milestones. And really none of it would have been possible without YOUR support.

From the launch of TSC Bombshell Body Guide, to some fun collaborations, to conquering super taboo, real deal blog topics, YOU GUYS are what makes it all possible.


Best of 2015

Thank you for keeping me inspired while sharing support for The Skinny Confidential.

It’s crazy to me that four years ago I was bartending & teaching Pure Barre and now I’m a full time creator. Life really is what you make of it! But let’s get real, I could NOT have done any of this without your constant support. Can’t wait to bring you all along on 2016’s ride.

The opportunity to get to know each & every one of you through the blog has been such a dream come true.

On that note, I wish all of you a badass 2016. Cheers to YOU shooting for the moon, accomplishing your goals, growing as individuals, & looking fucking fabulous while doing it!


Thank you again for following along on this strange, beautiful journey we call life.

( by the way, I’m a day late & a dollar short on this post, but what the hell else is new? I was busy drinking margaritas on New Year’s, sorry. HA! ).

Now go KICK some ASS in 2016, cheers!

  1. Yours is the ONLY blog I read on the reg since a few years (and I’m Swiss!). Although to me it’s a little too posh and groomed by now and contentwise you lost me a bit (which is ok, since I’m kneedeep in community work where there is little glam) I still admire your approach, your attitude and I think you are incredibly talented for this.

    Keep up the good work!

  2. I’ve been following you since 2011 and I have enjoyed seeing how much your blog has grown and the awesome content you have! It is what really encouraged me to finally start my own blog as a career. So thank you for the inspiration! I hope 2016 is an awesome year!

  3. Oh, Lauryn, this is such a rad post! I loved going through all the pictures and the videos, since I remember each one of those posts {creeper status}. You are such an inspiration, not just for blogging, but encouraging women to truly follow their dreams & make things happen. I have such a soft spot for TSC since it has connected me with San Francisco bloggers who I am so blessed to now call my friends. The community you have created is truly something rad, and I am so stoked to see what 2016 has in store for you, TSC, and so much more. Your videos are seriously the best. I hope you had a wonderful New Year & cheers to a great 2015!! xx SS

  4. I wish I could kick myself in the face for not having discovered your blog sooner.. not only did I find you and fall in LOVE with the content you create (seriously, such an inspiration, and our future collaboration is a DREAM,) but I also dissevered some other incredible ladies that you shared with us, (hello Suja juice and Lydia Elise!) I’m so excited for 2016, not only for myself and MY family, but for you and YOURS as well <3<3.

  5. Okay, I’ve loved TSC for years and now I love it even more…my husband works with Lostboycrow! Love that you used his song in the 2015 video!

  6. Cheers to you in 2016!

    I started reading your blog a few years ago, and honestly you’re my favorite because of your amazing lifestyle tips and your realness. I’ve become a user of Vit E oil, Nippies, magic seeds, and Hooters tights, and I can’t wait to keep learning! Thanks for inspiring us to lead healthier and awesomer lives!

    1. Hi Krista, I really do love you guys. Honestly most of my inspiration comes from you guys! All the suggestions, tips, etc. I get them from your emails and comments. So THANK YOU for always interacting and being so supportive! xx

  7. love Love LOVE your blog!!! I read it every day while I have a break at work. Congrats on all of your accomplishments in 2015. Cheers to another year!

  8. Congratulations on a great year! I can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store for you and the TSC.

    To be perfectly honest, I started out feeling kind of guilty reading the TSC, because I’m not tall or pretty or thin and though I have creative hopes, all my accomplishments have been focused on a career in an office I hate. But reading your blogs and how real you are about everything going on in your life, I always felt welcome to keep reading. Thanks for that Lauryn!

    2016 is bringing a lot of really personal changes in my life, and I plan on continuing to read TSC for the extra boost of confidence to get me through it all.

    1. Hi Olivia, you are SO sweet. I’m sure you’re gorgeous STOP. You are always welcome here! You have no idea how much I appreciate your support. Feel free to reach out any time. I hope you have a wonderful 2016. I’m sure you’re going to take on all of the changes like a total badass! xx

    Have a fantastic 2016??

  10. I love this so much! I watched it too many times and downloaded the song! This inspires me so much to live and put as much effort into my life as possible. Keep inspiring Lauryn and cheers (with a glass of smart water till feb) to another amazing year full of adventure and smart advice!

    Can’t wait for more tips and posts in 2016!
