Today on the TBB podcast is one of my sweet twin daughters, Lauren Scruggs Kennedy!
Lauren and I first met in 1988, when she and her twin sister, Brittany were born to her dad and I at Southbay Hospital in Redondo Beach, CA!
Lauren was born in Redondo Beach, CA but raised in Dallas, so she calls herself a California girl whose roots are deep in the heart of Texas.
In December 2011, Lauren’s life was forever changed. She was hit by an airplane plane propeller; which resulted in a brain injury and the loss of her left eye and left hand. Lauren began to realize that brokenness can be beautiful, even amidst unexpected suffering and pain.
Lauren became the bride of Jason Kennedy, co-host of E!News in 2014, which also made her a new resident to beautiful California. She is a lifestyle blogger, the co-author with her family of the book “Still LoLo” and sole author of her book, “Your Beautiful Heart”!
She is the Founder of LaurenScruggsKennedy.com, a lifestyle blog rooted in balance- igniting honest talk and celebrating stories. LSK is a haven of positivity including posts on healthy living, clean beauty, delicious recipes, relationship talk, style updates, shopping ideas, and so much more.
She and her team recently launched the Lauren Scruggs Kennedy Foundation this past Dec 2016, which exists to bring hope, restore dignity, and ignite faith in girls and women with limb loss by providing beautiful cosmetic coverings for prostheses.
She also just launched, along with her twin, Brittany and Brittany’s husband Shaun, and her best friend, a loose powder dry shampoo for all hair types called Stranded.
Lauren became an aunt, affectionately called “Aunt Lolo” to her niece Kate last Oct!
