Hi! I’m Laura Rose, a travel and style blogger based in California. The Republic of Rose is a place where I share my personal style, inspiration and love for travel.
A little about me: my passion for travel began at an early age when my family decided to move from sunny California over to Europe. After spending nearly a decade living in London and the South of France, I had a desire to see even more of the world.
I went to college in Charleston, South Carolina where I had my first taste of the South — and it will always have a place in my heart! After college, I moved to Los Angeles which has been my home base for the past few years. I love exploring all the beautiful places in California and am always planning my next big trip!
Some fun facts:
Totally obsessed with matcha
I work in marketing and have a passion for social media and content creation.
Most of the time, you’ll find me in a bright, floral dress
I’ve never liked seafood before but have a newfound love for sushi and oysters
I’m horrible with languages. After taking French and Italian for years, I have very little to show (…Ciao! Dov’è il vino?)
My last meal would be bolognese and tiramisu (the best bolognese I’ve ever had was in Bologna, Italy!)
I used to make jewelry until I started blogging!
