about

 
Cheekie was born of frustration. For years I’ve struggled with the often-futile content of women’s magazines and blogs. Where are all the magazines and blogs for smart women? Shoes and sex tips are fabulous, but we know our rivers run deeper than that.
 
The young women I know are intellectually curious, savvy and yes, cheeky. Cheekie blog is for women who love their lip gloss and their boyfriends, but are not defined by them. From book reviews to wellness tips and inspiring interviews, Cheekie offers substance and fun for smart women.
 
Cheekie would be nothing without you, the reader. We would love to have your input. Read a great book that we should feature? Let us know! Your story ideas, suggestions and questions are welcome and important to us. We look forward to hearing from you.

*Per request, some essential info about yours truly*

If we were friends in real life, you’d know that…

…I am a serial book-buyer. On average, I read half of each book I buy.

…My dad is known in some circles as P-Diddy (Papa Diddy). He’s known in other circles as BYOB (Bring Your Own Bob).

…I once found my dog in my shower, with the door shut, lying next to vomit containing a nickel, a bracelet, a hair tie, and a pen tip.

…In photos, one of my eyes is smaller than the other. There’s a chance they appear this way in real life too.

…I’ve been known to wear boots in summer.

…William Trevor is my favorite author.

…I’ve traveled to eleven countries on four continents. Most beautiful: New Zealand.

…I pull my eyelashes out compulsively.

…I know more about football than your boyfriend does.

…Unbeknownst to me, I once tried to smuggle a jacknife through airport security.

…There exists a highly entertaining video of me vehemently objecting to the pilfering of my cheese fries.

    Lauren I just had a chance to read your “There are worse things than being alone” and I have to tell you sistah, you hit home for me with that. For the first time in my life, I am falling in love with myself, my “aloneness” and life. Its the most amazing process and I am constantly wondering why we don’t celebrate this more often. Your statement about being “more open” to possibility, experiences, people, could not be more correct. Love is all around, within and without and there is literally so much to share if we just stand in ourselves. Thanks for such a great offering!!!!

      Thank you so much, Cheryl! And I think maybe the reason we don’t celebrate this more often is because our culture conditions us to view relationship/marriage as “the big prize”. When I finally started falling in love with myself, my life, my aloneness, I thought “Why didn’t anyone tell me about this sooner?!” Thanks for reading 🙂
