About Me


Hello! My name is Lauren Rachel and welcome to my blog. I have lived in Chicago all of my life and currently reside in the lovely city neighborhood that is Wicker Park. I work a full time job, love thrifting, and enjoy life to its fullest.

I attended DePaul University where I majored in Digital Cinema with a concentration in Animation. I love to draw and paint, but in the end my wonderful editing professor switched my passion from animation to film editing and I decided that animation was no longer for me.

While attending DePaul University I became a member of Delta Gamma. Although I have graduated from college, I am still an active member in the Chicago Alumni Group.

I currently work as an Assistant Film Editor at a Chicago post-house known as The Colonie. We edit commercials and a lot of web promos, so you've probably seen some our work. I love the people I work with and the experience I'm getting at this fantastic company.

I wanted to start this blog as a way to motivate myself to carry my camera around with me more often. When I go out I will convince myself in my mind that where ever I'm going there won't be anything interesting to take pictures of. I would like to change that belief because just this city alone has so much to offer. Also, this blog is a great place for me to showcase some of my ever growing and evolving fashions.

I hope that you enjoy my blog and if you have any questions you'd like to ask me or to see more examples of my work please feel free to email me at lmalis@comcast.net.
