lozcurtis I don’t even know where to begin... but I don’t want to be silent. Racial discrimination is not, has never been, and will never be, ok. It cannot be something we get used to hearing about and then detach from. It cannot be something we choose to be ignorant to because it does not affect us. It cannot be something we only discuss privately. We (those of privilege) must be as vocal as those who are suffering, because this is not about ‘them’ and ‘us’. This requires unity. This is a problem that was caused by us, and one that must be fixed by us. Especially as Australians, we cannot turn a blind eye to what is happening in America simply because we don’t live there and it’s “their problem to solve”. Racism towards our Indigenous Australians is so ingrained into the foundation and culture of our country that it has now disguised itself as casual racism. Those little jokes you make, the derogatory terms you use, the way you’ll see someone with darker skin than yours and instantly assume you’re in danger. Just because it’s been so normalised does not mean it is normal. I’m sure most of the people reading this are not racist, and are proud to be that way. But unfortunately that is simply not enough. Systems need to change. Attitudes need to change. Globally. Let’s start a conversation - what can those of us with privilege do to help those who are oppressed? How can we fight casual racism? How can we help speak for those whose voices are never listened to? How can we clearly get the message across that Black Lives Matter?
lozcurtis A month or so ago (in my own time) I started taking the @bondiboost hair growth vitamins in an attempt to reduce excess hair loss and strengthen it from the inside out 💊 It’s one thing to have fast-growing hair, but another for it to be healthy and strong enough to stay that length 💪🏻 A few weeks later I got an email asking if I’d like to work with them on their vitamins - I love those synchronicities when working with brands! So far so good - less hair fall (of course some is completely normal) and overall breakage. The capsules are vegan and full of all the important vitamins and essential ingredients like biotin, vitamin B6, C and E, folic acid and zinc. I also reordered the intensive spray after running out and I swear that has helped too! I just spray it on my roots after I’ve washed my hair and before I blow dry it. Have you noticed a difference when taking hair vitamins? #bondiboost #boostyourroots #sp
lozcurtis I’m telling ya, @boohoo jeans are underrated 👖 These are my new wide leg pair (size 8). I often find that the popular jean brands are too long for my legs, but Boohoo ones are always almost perfect. I’m 164cm tall or 5’4 for reference!

lozcurtis I’m alive! 👋🏻 Has anyone else been feeling really... off recently? I have 🥴 It’s why I haven’t been active on my socials. Super unmotivated and uninspired, feeling like I’m stuck in limbo just trying to pass the days. It’s weird cos normally I love doing absolutely nothing 😅 but when you’re forced to (for very good reason) for a prolonged period of time it just feels kinda Groundhog Day-ish and loses its appeal. I feel better today, so I whipped out my camera, dusted it off and filmed a good old-fashioned chatty GRWM for YouTube. I’m editing it now so it should be up sometime tomorrow. Hang in there, folks! Times are weird at the moment but it will all eventually pass. It always does 😘
lozcurtis Super proud of my poly gel nails 💅🏻 This was my second attempt. Learning a new skill/finding a new hobby during iso has been really great and gives me something to look forward to (awaiting deliveries and changing nail colours/styles 😄) 👏🏻 Have you learned a new skill or found a new hobby recently? 🧐 ps. All info regarding what I used is in the link in my bio under ‘Aus nail products’ if you’re Aussie, or ‘US nail products’ if you’re overseas. I’ve also created a ‘nails’ highlight on my page 🥰
lozcurtis If not now, when? 🌻 I’m delving deep into this on the @mentalmakeoverpodcast today. We're all in this habit of saying "one day" or, "I'd love to do that, but -" and we confine ourselves to the bounds of the 'safer' option, not realising what we're giving up in the process. It's so easy to get caught in the routine of wake up, eat, go to work, come home, eat, sleep, wake up, etc, not only because it's what everyone else is doing so it appears normal, but also because we keep ourselves so busy and stressed that we don't even allow ourselves the opportunity to think outside the box and to entertain the idea of a different way of life. With everything happening in the world right now, I've been reflecting on this myself almost daily. How much do I actually need? What do I actually need? What makes me happy? What am I only doing out of obligation and fear? What are my dreams? How do I get there? What's stopping me? Is pursuing them actually as risky and scary as I thought or have I just been conditioned to believe that? We've all got this little voice inside of us that presents us with the idea of an alternate way of life (whatever that might look like for each of us) that we shrug off and disregard because it seems unrealistic and far-fetched. We like the safety, security and false perception of certainty that our current life provides us, so even if we long for a deeper sense of fulfilment and joy, we always go back to the 'safer' option. If coronavirus has taught us anything, it's that absolutely nothing is guaranteed (namely our income and health), so why not listen to that little voice inside of you that wants you to be happy, and do that thing you've always wanted to do but haven't out of fear? 🌼 If you’re interested in hearing more, search Mental Makeover wherever you get your podcasts 💘 #mentalmakeoverpodcast
lozcurtis Tried out the @bitebeauty Changemaker Complexion System 🌼 The foundation is a longwearing, clean formulation with a really beautiful medium coverage that can be built up if desired. It’s one of those special formulas that keeps your skin looking like skin just a little more.. flawless (which is exactly what I’m after these days) ☺️ I used the normal to dry primer (my skin is usually normal to oily, but it’s felt a little dry recently), the foundation in shade L40 and the powder in shade light 2. The entire #NewFaceOfClean collection is completely clean, vegan, cruelty-free and gluten-free (yep, that’s a thing with beauty products too!) 🌱 I really enjoyed playing with these and genuinely stoked that they’re vegan 🙏🏻 Proof that you can make high quality makeup without exploiting animals 🐇 It’s available online at @sephoraaus 🛍 #CleanUpYourComplexion #sponsored

lozcurtis Swipe left for a comparison photo 🍑
Both are real and both are great 💪🏼 I usually only post photos of my best angles with the best lighting because I look at those photos and they make me feel good about myself. Like the training I do has paid off. But it doesn’t mean I’m also not proud of my body when it doesn’t look like that! In the second photo I’m clenching my butt cheeks to demonstrate that I still have my fair share of cellulite, which is super noticeable in direct sunlight, as are my stretch marks and lil spider veins! I used to be soooo worried people would notice all these “flaws” and it’s honestly crippling. You convince yourself that you need to lose weight and that other girls don’t have them so you’re not as attractive as they are, when in reality we ALL have them to some degree and THEY DOOOO NOOOOTTTT MATTTERRRR 📢📢📢 No one cares about your ~perceived~ flaws as much as you do! You’d spend less time worrying about what others thought of you if you knew how little they actually did. ROCK YOUR BODY! Love it, nourish it, move it, rest it, do whatever you wanna do with it. Just stop hating on it!
Edit: all pics were taken at the same time, the comparison is just showing posed and flattering angle vs relaxed/unflattering angle 😘
lozcurtis I look like a tryhard in the bottom pic and it now makes me cringe BUT 😂 in today’s episode of the @mentalmakeoverpodcast I talk all things law of attraction and manifesting 💫 I talk about how I brought my dream car into existence when I was 16, and how I brought my dream life into existence when I was 18. The car in the bottom pic you’d probably call a glow-up, and I guess it is, but that $1,000 turquoise ford festiva represents a pivotal moment in my life, and for that reason, it almost feels like owning it was more of an accomplishment than owning the fancy one. I know not everyone believes in this stuff, but it’s proven its efficacy time and time again for me, so I wanted to share my 2 cents 💭 Available on iTunes and Spotify (search mental makeover or Lauren Curtis) or click the direct link in my bio ❤️ #mentalmakeoverpodcast
lozcurtis We now have our own little warehouse to get creative and separate work from home ☺️🌈🎉 We have so many things we want to do in here... and I’m just so grateful I get to do it all with you @reeceddaniel ❤️
lozcurtis Last night’s outfit 🖤 QUESTION for gals with big foreheads 😂 I want to style my hair differently (besides curling/waving) but I feel like most hairstyles look better if you’ve got a tiny little perfect shaped forehead 🤣 My hair is always straight and boring cos I suck at hair! I know practice makes perfect but I don’t know what to practice in the first place 😩 I welcome any DM’s with hairstyle suggestions 🙏🏻💁🏼♀️💇🏼♀️
lozcurtis Our first photo together 4 years ago @reeceddaniel ❤️ I had been single up until I was 21 so I had always been super independent, wondering what it would be like to have a boyfriend (I always tried to imagine it because the idea was so surreal to me), thinking when I found someone it was going to be this massive change in my life and everything would be different. Since we first met our relationship has been so effortless and natural that it feels like you have always been a part of my life, and while everything technically did change, it feels like nothing did at all. I love you forever @reeceddaniel ❤️🌹
lozcurtis Here’s a plot twist: you’re probably gonna have cellulite, stretch marks, dimples, rolls and jiggly bits no matter how healthy you eat, how often you work out or how many calories you restrict yourself to. The sooner you accept that, the sooner you can buy that bikini you’ve been waiting years to ‘look good’ in (another plot twist: you already look good in it), the sooner you can put yourself out there and meet someone, the sooner you can show your daughter what it means to believe in her own beauty, and the sooner you can simply live your life right here in this moment. It’s simple, and the only person complicating it is you. I was crippled by body image issues as an 18 year old who weighed around 48kg. Crazy, right? I surrendered every ounce of control I had over my own self esteem to the opinions of others, and the funny part is, they probably never had an opinion in the first place. If you can’t embrace your body the way it is right in this moment - you’re never going to be happy with it. Why? Because it’s forever changing. Shrinking, widening, sagging, tightening, toning, loosening; as long as your happiness depends on it looking a certain way, you’ll always be chasing something you’ll never be able to hold on to. Here’s a cool fact: you’re alive, so your body is working. It’s doing what it’s meant to. Sure, it might be just pulling through, or maybe you’re healthier than ever, but your body is doing everything in its power to keep you here. Let’s stop pointing out its flaws and start appreciating its beauty, because there is SO much of it 💫❤️
lozcurtis GIRLS WITH BIGGER BEWBIES: I bought these @peekandbeau kinis from ASOS before my Bali holiday and I have never been so impressed by the fit of a set of bikinis before (one pieces are easier to find the right fit). The sizing is that of a normal bra - you can pick your cup and back size (eg. 10DD) 😭🙏🏻 And the bottoms are TRUE TO SIZE!!! Not those tiny little pieces of fabric I have to buy 5 sizes bigger than my usual size. The quality is INCREDIBLE, the price was SO GOOD and they are SO COMFORTABLE. You can’t see in this pic but they’re a beautiful soft pink, I also bought the pale blue ones too. I was so impressed I wrote to the brand and gushed over them - I don’t think I’ve ever done that before! Anyway, not sponsored, just wanted to share my amazing find! 👙💘
lozcurtis Unretouched photos from my shoot with @toofaced today 💋 WHAT PIC IS YOUR FAVE?! I couldn’t decide between 1 and 2, I even asked Twitter for help 😂
Thank you so much @toofaced and @meccamaxima for this amazing trip, don’t forget @meccamaxima stocks the amazing #toofacedtuttifrutti collection (I used all @toofaced for this look!) 🍍🍓🍌🍉
