Hi, I’m Lauren and I created this blog as a place to share what inspires me to live my happiest, most magical life every day. I hope, in turn, it will bring out what inspires and creates happiness for you.ACS_1484

What is minimal alchemy anyway?

I believe it’s the little things in life that create the most magic.

That feeling you get when you wear an outfit you love. Cooking a tasty new recipe. Hosting a gathering with your favorite people.

Whatever it is that makes you the happiest – do it, wear it, or create it as often as you can.  Happiness is magical.

A bit about me…

I live in a small town in southern New Jersey with my husband Shea.

I am the owner of crescent & crow, an online boutique featuring my handcrafted jewelry and natural aromatic essences.

When I’m not working behind the scenes at crescent & crow, you can usually find me in my closet creating endless outfits, reading, going on adventures with Shea, cooking (and eating), enjoying classic movies, and turning just about any situation into a fun event.

If you have any questions or just want to say hi, please feel free to email me anytime. Just click here  to get to my contact page. I would love to hear from you!

Thanks for stopping by!


P.S. This blog is just for fun. Any products or clothing that I share here are only my personal preferences. I am not sponsored by anyone. (With the exception being anything by crescent & crow, which are my own products.)
