Lauren is senior content editor across woman&home and woman, covering everything from the latest royal news to fashion, beauty and health content. Lauren graduated from her masters in magazine journalism in 2011, quickly making the transition over to digital and has never looked back. From getting out a breaking news story to penning an in-depth feature, she loves the variety of writing for the web.
Prior to that, Lauren completed her degree in English literature; a topic also close to the hearts of w&h readers. She'll give anything a go, from the Booker Prize winner to a gritty crime series, but always prefers a paperback to its digital successors. As a member of not one, but two, book clubs, she loves discussing the latest reads over a beverage or two.
Over the years, Lauren has tested hundreds of beauty products, with a particular soft spot for a great skincare buy. Specialising in beauty and wellness on the w&h site, she's a champion for the self-care movement, believing there are few problems that can't be solved by a long bubble bath. She loves sharing new products with w&h readers, in particular from brands whose ethos is centred around natural ingredients and sustainability.
When she's not working, you'll find her planning her next adventure, preferably to somewhere long haul with limited WiFi. A former writer for the travel pages of the TI Media weekly titles, Lauren's been able to share her insider tips on the best places to eat, drink, sleep and explore in countries across the world. She also loves seeking out hidden gems in the local area and has penned a number of neighbourhood guides for hotels across London.
On the weekend you can usually find her walking the dog in her local park, drinking lots of coffee, or attempting to Marie Kondo her room. You can follow her on Instagram here - @laurenkatehughes
