Lauren Westlund first popped up on my radar while we attended high school together. She was the older, mysterious girl who radiated beauty. I wanted so bad to get to know her, but school ended and she graduated. I was lucky enough to run into her at a photo shoot, and was overjoyed to finally have the opportunity to get to know her. Now all of you can too. Lauren is the type of girl that every woman wants to be, and every man wants to be with. She carries herself with poise and class as the picture-perfect Southern woman. But when Lauren turns up the heat, she does it right. Lauren can walk into a room and everyone goes quiet, everyone notices her, everyone looks at her. This Southern bombshell spends her time modeling, going to cosmetology school, and working out. Lauren is definitely the girl next door, and I can’t wait to watch as her career in this industry unfolds.
