I started releasing my solo music the beginning of this year (well, December 28th, 2018 ) and I had no idea what to expect from you guys. You guys are so supportive of our Cimorelli music, but I wasn’t sure what the reaction would be to my music. I was so scared of putting myself out there. Especially with my song “Running”. That was the first song I released. Not sure why I decided to start with the most vulnerable one 🙃 I remember when I announced it was coming out I was soooo nervous and for that whole week before it came out I could barely eat. Not only was it terrifying anticipating what people’s reactions might be, but at this point in my life I was a very private person. I didn’t like sharing struggles, or vulnerabilities with people. Especially not to strangers on the internet. I wrote this song when I was 17 with the sole intention of expressing my feelings about the situation I was in. I had no idea how to produce a song and not much of an idea how to write a song. My thought when I finished it was “There is no way I am ever realizing this. This is waaayy too personal.” 3 years later, my baby was about to come into the world. Every song on my EP #Orange came about the same way. The only thought I had while writing these was this: What is the most accurate way I can communicate the way that I am feeling right now? The response I got to all of these songs was OVERWHELMING. Especially to Running. It’s so humbling to see the support you guys have shown 😭 beyond grateful for you all and I’m SO excited to see what this next year brings 💜 also shoutout to Mexico 😘
This week with Lauren - 11/23 Wow I’m actually posting 2 weeks in a row ! Who would’ve thot ! lol almost every pic in this is from last weekend bc this week was really hard!!! So much has been piling up on me and I wasn’t prepared for it. Didn’t have the routines / systems / schedules in place to be able to deal with so much. I pretty much just withdrew into myself and tried to make the world go away. Didn’t work that well bc the world still exists 🙃 still working through this slump tbh but I felt a lot better today after spending some time honestly connecting with some people yesterday and talking about what was going on and also being real with myself and talking to myself about what was going on lol seems like a no-brainer, but I do have a tendency to not check in with myself and see what’s going on, especially when I’m not feeling good. If you’re going through a hard time right now, which I know a lot of you are, just know I’m right there with you and we’ll get through it. ❤️ I wanna say thanks to everyone who supported our new merch launch / golden ticket week! I put my heart and soul into all of it and it’s been our most successful drop to date and that is really encouraging to see so thank you 🙌🏼 also thank you to everyone who came to our shows on this tour. It’s been such a blessing to be able to share this experience with you all ❤️ you guys always give me so many reasons to be grateful especially when I really need it 💜💜💜
This week with Lauren ✨ lol again, this is more like the last ~ few weeks ~ with Lauren. Been such a crazy month !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well really a crazy last 2 months. We have been working SO HARD trying to get this year all finished out for you guys. Planning our best videos, trying a lot of new things, finishing up our TOUR, coming out with our winter merch line, jewelry line, and BOOK Believe In You !!!! In the midst of all of thisss I’ve been trying to cultivate balance in my life 🕊 it’s been difficult for sure bc I have a tendency to be a bit of a workaholic 😅 I’m like oh yeah I can do everything ! I can stay up late ! I can wake up early ! I can ignore my friends ! And myself ! And literally everything else ! But .... that ain’t it. I reposted a quote on my story today that sums it up real well. It talks about doing your best and how you do your best when you take care of yourself. You do your best when you are healthy and happy. Doing your best is not running yourself into the ground til you can barely function. Trying to accept that. The biggest thing I’ve been trying to change is making the choice to do things for myself even if it means sacrificing something else. Like going to bed when I know I need more sleep, being 5 minutes late when I need to grab something I forgot instead of just going without it, canceling plans when I need a night to myself. Bc when life gets so busy, you’re going to have to sacrifice something and I am NOT sacrificing myself. Neither should you. The world will keep turning and you will be fine if you don’t do every last thing people expect of you and you take the time you need to take care of yourself instead. 💜

This week with Lauren - 10/26 This week I was #sick nothing major but I had a cold and it was pretty bad so there’s not many action shots in this week’s post 😪 some noteworthy moments: 1. our book is #1 new release in Teen and Young Adult maturing on Amazon !!!! (Not sure how many other books are really in that category but still that’s cool ahahaha ) so thanks everyone for supporting this book its been so heartwarming to hear how much it’s helped a lot of you 😭😭😭😭 2. the last 2 videos are the practice and the final product of our Halloween performance thingy we did for some trick or treaters. For some reason we just can’t not be extra 😪😪 some of the little kids got scared and ran away during it so that made me rethink my life a bit but overall it went well ahahahah other than that I tried my best to rest and get well and not people please like I talked about in last week’s post !!! Did a pretty good job feeling much more rested and energized this weekend :’ ) how was your week? Let me know in the commentssss

This week with Lauren - 10/20 Technically this is the last 2 weeks lol these first pics are me as an alien for our annual Halloween party 👽💫☄️ also did the first 2 shows of our tour last weekend !! was so special thank you to everyone who came ❤️ on a more personal level, I had a big realization just this weekend. I’ve always had an issue with people pleasing and putting others first to the point that I completely forget to take care of myself and my needs. I’ve done a lot of work over the past few years to get over that and I was doing a pretty good job for a while recently but this week I realized that it was coming creeping back in. And I was doing things solely because I didn’t want to upset people and almost every conversation was so exhausting because I was hyper focused on how the person I was talking to was feeling and trying to respond in a way that I thought they wanted me to respond that I was completely losing myself. I’ve been running myself into the freaking ground trying to prove myself to everyone in pretty much every way you can and stressing myself out so much that I ended up getting sick and basically being forced to take a break and take care of myself. All that to say I decided that for this next week I need to protect myself and make sure I have the time I need to relax and decompress and be alone. I don’t have to be there for everyone all the time and neither do you!!!! If you relate to any of that, I really urge you to take a step back, take a breath and start putting your mental and physical health first. Don’t let yourself deteriorate in the name of being “nice”.

This week with Lauren - 10/6 To be honest I really didn’t do much this week other than working REALLY HARD to prepare for TOUR which starts next weekend !!!!!???? I’m so excited and I love performing for you guys 😭 it definitely takes a lot of effort and planning beforehand though and I may or may not have overdone it a little this week 🙃 but other than that, we had a birthday party for a beautiful friend 💜 and also had a lot of love on the @cimorelliband account. First off from @taylorswift HERSELF WHAT THE HECK !!!?????? also from @billboard 🙌🏼 thank you guys for the post 💜 but mostly thank YOU GUYS for getting us to 900k that’s so insane to me.

I’m truly humbled that you guys take time out of your day to follow us and watch us and give us the opportunity to live our dreams everyday 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜 such a grateful heart this week :’ )

This week with Lauren - 9/29 I had so much energy this week mentally and physically and I think there’s a couple things that contributed to it... 1. I started going on a walk every morning and praying the rosary by listening to it on this rosary app I have while I walk. Changes my morning so much, brings so much more peace and clarity to my day!?? 2. I started drinking a gallon of water (128 oz ) everyday which is keeping me so hydrated which makes me feel better physically and also is making my skin look so good ??? 3. I read this 70 page book at 10 pages a day called “Searching For and Maintaining Peace” and it changed the way I view God, myself, the people around me, my goals, literally everything. If you are seeking a deeper relationship with God, this is a MUST READ!! Every time I think I can figure everything out on my own, I always find out the hard way that the best choice for everyone involved is just to rely solely on Him. 🙌🏼 Trying my best to do that. how was your week? Comment and tell me 😊
THE BELIEVE IN YOU TOUR STARTS IN 2 WEEKS!!! Come out and have some fun for a night!!!!! This show is gonna be better than anything we’ve ever done before.

This week with Lauren - 9/22 First off the seventh picture is a pic of the wound on my forehead after my laptop fell on me during an extreme Netflix binge... so be careful out there kids. This week I think I did pretty well with managing the amount of pressure I put on myself. I found myself a new mantra for when I start freaking out about potentially not doing something perfectly: “I could choose peace over this.” And then letting it go as best I can. I’m trying to start seeing succeeding and doing well as an option I get to choose rather than something that I absolutely must do or else I will die cause with the amount of anxiety that whole concept causes me, it seems to be that I’ve been seeing it as a life or death thing. I’m reading a book called “Searching for and maintaining interior peace” and I would highly recommend it for anyone seeking peace. All in all had a pretty good week 👌🏼 excited to have an even better one next week!
This hat is giving those ~ vintage Lauren vibes ~ lol also come see us on tour this fall. I think these are gonna be our best shows yet.

This week with Lauren - 9/1 Busiest week I’ve had in a while 😅 proud of myself for really pushing myself and getting though it all though ❤️ went on the @blessedisshe__ retreat this weekend, don’t have any pics from that though ahha was definitely an experience I needed. It was so great to hear other women’s stories about their walks with God and the things they’ve learned along the way and then also to be able to go to confession and adoration and share that experience with so many other women. Came out of it with some much needed new perspective on who God is and who I am. Going into this next week with peace in my heart, knowing that God is right there with me and He is always on my side 🙌🏼
