A Jersey City native, Lauren Bento is a content creator, social media marketer, photographer and interior design enthusiast. An interest for cooking, fashion, beauty products and childrenswear can also be found in the mix of things she loves. After studying marketing/communications at The Fashion Institute of Technology, Lauren took on fashion editorial internships at The Daily Mirror newspaper in London, Elle magazine in New York City, and was a contributing writer + blogger for a variety of fashion/lifestyle websites. She has also worked as a freelance social media specialist, as well as a photographer for the online shopping platform, Shopikon, documenting many of New York City’s coolest independent shops and boutiques. With experience in fashion, writing and content creation, Lauren then worked as a social media manager and copywriter for four years at Camille La Vie & Group USA, a womenswear brand specializing in formal events. There, she was immersed in all levels of marketing (both digital and print) while simultaneously understanding the ins and outs of public relations, video/catalog production, merchandising, event planning, photoshoot styling and graphic design. In the last two years, she has embarked on her biggest role to date – motherhood.
Lauren is a mommy to her little boy (Theo James Alexander), wife to the most amazing husband/daddy ever, and homemaker on the quest to bring a state of cozy happiness (or as the Danish would say “hygge”) to their everyday lives. An avid traveler, Lauren loves exploring the world with her family and documenting new cultures, places and things through the lens of her camera. She delights in discovering + curating the simple beauties and pleasures of the everyday, whether at home or somewhere else in the world. With a joy for everything visual and a love for writing, Lauren is eager in journaling and sharing her daily life through her blog. While taking care of Theo and managing Bell and Coeur, Lauren is also working on launching her own small business around the things she treasures most.
Stay tuned for the launch!
