Just before Christmas, Bougie contributor Cassandra virtually introduced me to Lauren Hong. Lauren is the owner of Out and About Communications and Founder of Lauren Olivia and Company, a brand of handbags that sources beautiful textiles from all over the world.
Then, Lauren came into the office a few weeks ago for a chat about everything from starting her businesses to books where she finds inspiration. Check it out!
Here are a few of the books Lauren loves:
