Lauryn Evarts Bosstick of The Skinny Confidential Him & Her Podcast with your host Jill Dunn


Welcome back Beauties! Today we’re chatting with Lauryn Evarts Bosstick, the creator of beauty, wellness, and lifestyle blog The Skinny Confidential and co-host of TSC Him & Her Podcast. Lauryn’s a hugely successful influencer who’s earned mentions in Shape, Self and Women’s Health magazines. Her podcast has featured everyone from skin guru Kate Somerville to marketing whiz Gary Vaynerchuk and comedian Heather McMahan. And what we love about Lauryn is her no filter-style talk about taboo topics like boob jobs, face shaving and her complete openness about how jaw surgery completely changed her life (see before and after pics here.) We love us an over-sharer!
