Being a Model Has it's Perks
I got a free bi-ki-ni! I got a free bi-ki-ni! EVERYBODY NOW! I got a free bi-ki-ni! And I’m a very happy camper :) I test shot for TeenyB on Friday. They are a bikini company (with amazing bikinis I might add) that sell to upscale resorts and clients. We’ll say in the ballpark of $200 a bikini. AND I GOT ONE FOR FREE. :DDD Okay, it is kinda tiny .. so I doubt I’ll be wearing...
No News is Good News?
Whoever said that should be punched in the balls. Because I bet it was a guy. I’m tired of sitting around and waiting. I haven’t gone out on anything for a couple of days and I’m starting to get antsy. Gahhhhhhhh.
You're So RIDICULOUS
I can’t help but laugh. :)
Down to St.Pete I Go
for another HSN casting. We’ll see if they like me this time. Hopefully, it’ll be a yes. Details when I return!
Fuck is just a WORD.
And I’m no longer afraid to use it. If you know me well enough, you’ll know it is already staple in my everyday vocabulary. But now, I’ve come to a pretty solid realization. I’m staying in Tampa for the time being. If Disney wanted me, they would’ve called me already. Hong Kong is just not going to happen at this point in time. Don’t think of this post as a...
You’re wonderful. I already like you ten times better than facebook. Wanna know why? Because, the things I say sometimes are not alright for everyone’s eyes. Especially you Grandma.
-Domain name? CHECK. -imdb profile? CHECK. All to let you know that I am changing my name. Yes. You read the above correctly, I am changing my name. For now - it’s just a stage name. It won’t be my legal name for a while until I wish to pay the legal fees to change it. Drumroll please … Lauren Vera. Not Veer-ah, i.e. Vera Wang - Vair-ah, i.e. Rivera. Although, I really...
My Buddy Will
said it best, “The very substance of the ambitious is merely the shadow of a dream.” -William Shakespeare Most days, I feel like I’m chasing after the most ridiculous goals. I’d probably have more luck winning the lottery than ever making it famous. But for some reason, I’ve dreamed myself doing just that .. And I can’t let it go.
Somebody Pinch Me
I’m auditioning for MTV this Thursday in Orlando. I think I might hyperventilate. The show is this British show that they’re bringing here to America .. MTV picked it up and ordered a whole first season. There are two characters I’m auditioning for: One is the mean girl, the other is the weird kid’s quirky love interest. I’m reading the sides now, and I’m...
Once upon a time - I thought you were something special. I thought, delusional at best, that things would work out and somehow you’d magically fix all of my problems with guys. I thought that even though I’m crazy, you made a pretty good therapist. You listened to literally everything I told you .. Not sure how, I say the stupidest things and have the worst stories. But listen you...
I should be in Miami in 12 hours ..
but the world sucks. So, I’m not. There’s also a really long list of other things I should be doing, but right now … The world just sucks. This is nothing like how I expected life after high school to be. Once I made up my mind to not go to college and what, be famous? I don’t know - I just thought that the only thing holding my back from being this “big working...
I Hate You and Your Stupid 12 Year-Old Self
And I don’t even know you. I know it’s not super crazy amazingly important at this moment in time, but then again, it kinda is. I have to pick a new name. Preferably, a last name. Lauren Perez is already taken by this bitch on “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” Had I moved to California like I wanted to at 13 - I wouldn’t be going through this existential crisis....
School is Back in Session
for acting, that is :) I’m ordering books right now from a long list that Miss Kathy tells me I need. Or rather, she lectures from. Last night, I was kinda lost. So, I looked through her website and found an extensive reading list. Bring on the textbooks and highlighters!
I've Got Me a New Acting Teacher
and she’s absolutely fascinating. She’s an old bag with a mouth like a truck driver. Basically me in 40 years. I can tell we’re going to get along famously :)
Today I Went to a Nudist Resort
for a photoshoot.. and that was an experience. Let me tell you. I don’t think I’ve ever had such a pleasant shoot before. Nothing like my expectations. I thought it’d be all old creepers .. Surprisingly enough, no. The old guys honestly could’ve cared less that I was there. Perhaps it was that I was wearing a bikini while I was shooting - not in the buff like them. I guess it’s a lesson in...
All Mobbed Up
nocturnalpleasure: And I don’t mind at all ;) Mob Wives? I’m in loooooove.
Ballet has worn me out
nirepm: I’m exhausted. I haven’t felt that great in forever, though. You forget how much you miss something until all of a sudden it’s in your life again.
This will be me
delarossalove: in Laurenland - while I try and sell rich dudes on the idea of yacht detailing at boat shows. Got the promotional model gig today - I start working for them in about a month. You never know … One of these rich guys could be handsome, single, young(ish) who would happily sail me around the world and buy me lots of pretty things. A girl can dream, right? ;)
I'm a BALLERINAAAAAAA
once again :) I used to take dance lessons - I stopped just shy of 10 years. I never thought that dancing would be where I ended up. But who really knows what the future is going to bring? I definitely never thought I’d need dance in my life. Now: I’m looking into cruise ships, musicals, anything that brings me to the future I want for myself. So, it’s time for some dance...
The Phone Rings
and it’s a call from a the designer that I met with a week or so ago - the one for the magazine launch party. And I’ve booked it ;) You cannot even fathom how excited I am at this current time. I’m freaking jumping off walls right now! I’ll be heading down to Miami this Saturday to join in all of the lovely swimwear festivities!
Getting Paid to Wear a Bikini
Is honestly not the worst thing a person could do. I have no problem with it. To get paid (much more than I’m making at Express) an hour, add on a commission, and all I have to do is go to boat shows? And yes - stand there in a bikini. And yes - probably heels. The thing is, I have no problem with promotional modeling. Some people say it’s creepy because old men think they can hit...
I'm a Rockstar,
in my head. Only now, I get to play one in a movie! That’s right. So, I get to the bar we’re filming at today (in downtown Ybor) and one of the girls hasn’t shown up. I’m just supposed to be playing the cousin who introduces two of the characters. I had four lines. Only I get there, and everyone is all in a tizzy because soandso isn’t answering her phone. So what do...
More Nervous Than I Thought I'd be
Filming for the first time is kinda scurrry. Granted, it’s only a small film role - In an indie film at that. One that’s only going to be at the local film festivals .. But still. I’ve never actually done this before. Learned my 4 lines, I’m ready to go! Off to Ybor - More details when I return ;)
Anonymous asked: how are you "going where no girl has gone before" and in the same hand doing what every other actress has done....
