I'm a coastal cowgirl with a passion for travel and adventure. 

I currently live in Wilmington, NC with my husband, Garrett (aka Mr. Suitcase) and doggo, Blu. I am currently still working a 9-5 but would love to turn my love for social media and travel into a full-time job one day, so thank you in advance for being here and showing some support! Nothing I do would be possible without you all.

Hi friends, I'm Lauren James. 

I like you already! 


Mountains to Sea 

Originally from Tennessee, an Appalachian State Alumni, and mountain girl at heart, moving to coastal North Carolina was not something I had planned. However, it ended up being the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me and my little family. We live a sweet, sweet life in our little beach town, and I wouldn’t have it any other way…. But with lots of trips to the mountains, of course!




I get the question all the time: how did you end up in Wilmington and start as an influencer?

The truth is, I never thought I would end up in Wilmington, let alone becoming a Wilmington influencer/blogger! My husband is a marine scientist, and he was the first one done with school on the job search. Wilmington made sense for us. We never necessarily planned to stay here forever, and I never expected to love it as much as I do. I started posting about local businesses and daily/weekly vlogs romanticizing my life here in Wilmington and my page took off! The more I fell in love with my life in Wilmington, the more my page and audience grew with me. My life in Wilmington has opened doors and opportunities as a content creator and influencer that I could have never expected. I can safely say, we are here for the long haul!
