Hey, I'm Lauren!
Chicago, Illinois, United States · Member since May 2011

Hi!
First of all, I'd just like to welcome you into my home!
I host on Airbnb because I have always loved to read stories about distant places and times and I really like the idea of taking in a weary traveler.

Second, due to recent Airbnb events,
I feel that if your interests are anything but honest, you should know that I keep a softball bat by my bed and I, after having played for 12 years, I am quite adept at using it!
But if you don't want to hurt me or rob me, then you don't need to worry about that! Lol!

I'm a 22 year old Fashion Design and Marketing assistant and as a designer my personal focus is Historical and Costume design for film and theatre! I also do custom work and alterations, and fashion illustration!

I started Airbnb at my place downtown in the loop and did that for 2 years and loved it!
I've moved to a new place that is MUCH bigger in Uptown and totally love it here! IM CLOSE TO THE BEACH!!! lol
You'll love it too!

I grew up in many places and traveled a lot, but spent more time than anywhere else growing up in Sicily, Italy, which is also where my family is from! I consider it my only true home but Chicago is making for a close second!

I love playing sports, painting, sewing, eating, reading, movies, going to plays, operettas, operas and musicals, and a million other things! My catch phrase: wanna see something cool?

I also love my awesome super friendly cats! Baby Kitty lives here with me along with The Macmanus brothers (from Boondock Saints lol) Connor and Murphy, twin kittens!
Anyway, being a traveler myself, I feel that I know how best to make your stay enjoyable!

I live my life by these words: Work hard, Play hard!
and this way I feel I get the most out of life!
