Hi Everyone! I'm Lauleh - Persian for Tulip - aka Lalz. I hail from the Midwest. I started this blog in December 2012 when I was living/traveling in Hawaii for a month. Since then the blog has morphed into a creative outlet where I share my travels, fashion, food, and beauty adventures. I'm the all American girl rocking the latest fashion trends with a modest twist.
My style in three words: Colorful, Accessorized, and Polished.
Where are you from? I was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan. My ethnicity is Persian and I identify as an Iranian American.
What did you study in college? I graduated with a bachelors degree from Eastern Michigan University majoring in Sociology and minoring in Chemistry. I have a Masters in Health Administration from The University of Maryland.
What is your current 9-5? I'm currently working in healthcare finance.
Where do you live? Baltimore, Maryland but Michigan will always be home.
How many siblings do you have? Two - I have an older sister and a younger brother.
Do you have pets? Yes! An adorable Shih Tzu named Felfel (Persian for Pepper).
What languages do you speak? Persian, English, and Spanish.
How tall are you? I'm 5'3 - basically fun size!
What kind of camera do you use? Nikon D5300
What is your fitness routine? Honestly I don't have one. All the credit goes to good genes and a great metabolism. I just stick to small portions and frequent meals throughout the day. Also I drink a ton of water - I perpetually carry a S'well bottle.
Why did you name your blog A Day In The Lalz? My sister is the one that actually picked the name for my blog. It all began when I showed up in Hawaii where she was doing a Emergency Medicine rotation in for a month in Oahu. Since I was there for a month she thought it would be a great idea to document my days spent in Hawaii in the form of a blog. To mimic the phrase "A Day In The Life" she came up with A Day In The Lalz - incorporating my nickname! Thanks B!
