Who are you?

Hi, I’m Lauren! I’m a 24-year-old writer living in Toronto, Ontario. Last year I graduated from the University of King’s College in Halifax, Nova Scotia with a Combined Honours in Journalism and Creative Writing. I’ve spent the last year working at FASHION Magazine.

What’s the City in the Sea?

I chose this name because I quite literally grew up in a floating city in the middle of the Caribbean Sea. I was born on the 76 sq. mile island of Grand Cayman. I also love Edgar Allan Poe. This is a blog to talk about travel, beauty, photography, music… anything and everything.


Fizzy drinks, lipstick, collecting absurd amounts of candles, Caribbean thunder storms, exploring new cities, board games, Boursin cheese, snail mail, snow days, movie theatre popcorn.


My Diet Coke addiction, spiders, take-off and landings, public speaking, putting my duvet cover back inside my duvet, cold hands, running for the bus, Buckley’s, paying $10 for movie theatre popcorn.
