Lauren Taylor is a Commerce News and Deals Writer for Dotdash Meredith’s home brands, Real Simple, Better Homes & Gardens, and Southern Living. She covers everything from fashion to cleaning products, specifically focusing on sales, product reviews, and product launches.


  • Lauren was previously a Commerce Writer for The Dodo, the number one most-viewed and most-engaged with animal brand. She also freelance writes horoscopes and astrology content.
  • Lauren previously worked in the advertising industry. Her client was one of the largest retailers in the U.S., which provided her with experience working with retail brands.


Lauren is a Commerce News and Deals Writer for Dotdash Meredith’s home brands, Real Simple, Better Homes & Gardens, and Southern Living. She was previously a Commerce Writer for The Dodo, where she wrote pet product roundups and covered pet health topics and weird questions pet parents might have, which is fitting because Lauren, herself, often has weird questions about her dog. She currently freelance writes horoscopes and astrology content for The Everygirl and is the first person her friends go to with questions about their zodiac sign.

Lauren enjoys writing and commerce content because she likes researching, becoming an expert on certain topics, and being able to share her knowledge with others. She's also a shopaholic, and as Rachel Green once said, it’s like shopping for a living.

Favorite Purchase

Lauren’s favorite purchase is a pair of black Loeffler Randall Felix boots that she’s had for almost 8 years. They’re comfortable enough to walk in all day (perfect for NYC) and still look cute, and they match pretty much any outfit. She’s worn them so much that she has had them resoled over the years, and she even bought an extra pair in case her originals ever get worn out past the point of no return.


Lauren graduated from Boston University Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor's degree in psychology and Spanish. She was part of the Psi Chi National Honor Society in Psychology and the Undergraduate Psychology Association, and she worked as a research assistant in the psychology department. Lauren also received her master's degree in communication from Boston University. During college and grad school, Lauren was a member of Boston University’s Dance Theatre Group, a student dance performance group that performed two shows per school year.


  • Graduated Magna Cum Laude and member of Psi Chi National Honor Society in Psychology
  • Selected to receive a research assistantship and fellowship with her admission to grad school as one of the top candidates
