We Survived Hurricane Irma!

- About Me, Skin care
Hurricane Irma approaching Florida

Lauren Cline Beauty has been MIA for the last couple of weeks as we prepared and hunkered down for Irma.

Hurricane Dora, Jacksonville Beach, FL 1964

I was a beach girl, a tomboy and an athlete. My parents would have to drag me out of the surf. I could play on the beach all day!! I guess that’s what happens when you grow up a Florida girl! When I wasn’t at the the beach I was rollerblading and climbing trees with the neighborhood kids. I had zero interest in what was considered girly.
