Welcome to Ooh La Laura
Let’s Get To Know Each Other…
I’ll start. Born & raised in Cincinnati, Ohio but STC took me from Lexington to New Orleans, Chicago to NYC and finally settled me in Louisville, Kentucky. My love for Skyline Chili, Graeter’s Ice Cream, and LaRosa’s Pizza know no boundaries and that includes state lines.
In my short 32 years of life, I’ve worn many hats, most notably the ones bearing the label wife and mom [x3!]. I’ve always been a bit of a writer [just ask my mama], a deal thrill-seeker [end of season sale shopper, don’t mind if I do!], DIY-er [because God gave me two hands, a creative brain and an engineer of a husband].
With New York City in my dreams and Rachel Green on the screen, I graduated with a degree in Fashion Merchandising from the good ol’ University of Kentucky [where the bourbon’s strong and blood runs blue]. Turns out, life isn’t much like all-day coffee shop hangs with your buds and Ralph Lauren Dream Jobs falling in your lap. It’s actually better…
On the pages of this site, you will find affordable style, a husband and wife teaming up for DIY projects in between nap times, and most importantly, the low down, tug at your heartstrings, real talk of a girlfriend.
I’m insanely honored your here, reading these exact words because it has taken me nearly 10 years to come up with just the thing to say. I hope you’ll check back soon and often. Never miss a post by subscribing to Ooh La Laura, who knows…you just might find yourself scooping up deals, styled for your family photos, or picking up a hammer and nails.
