We had the good fortune of connecting with Randalyn Lauren and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Randalyn, how has your perspective on work-life balance evolved over time?
My work life balance has changed so much in the last few months. I make it top priority to write everything out in my planner that needs to get done. I try my hardest to follow my schedule. It works best for me to have everything written down that way I can see what needs to get done and complete it in a timely manner. Also, I am still a student, so I make sure to incorporate studying time and assignments, as well in my busy schedule. Time management is key and sticking to my schedule!

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Florida Girl Cosmetics is beauty brand that pays homage to the beautiful state of Florida. All of our products are named after different cities in Florida. There are five different city girl collections: Tallahassee, Orlando, Jacksonville, Tampa, and Miami. Each city has a different color schemes and gives the personality of the city. In the last few months, business has grown and we have been able to add more products to the the different collections. It has not been necessarily easy, but with hardwork and dedication, the brand is expanding. We just launched our first cosmetics vending machine in Tallahassee, at Governor’s Square. There are future plans to add more vending machines throughout the state, as well as adding more city girl collections.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I am such a foodie lol I would take anyone visiting me to a lot of food spots such as Tap 42, Upper Deck, Sunday Eatery, World Famous, Ikrave, crabman305 I prefer Halendale beach I love this beach cause it does not get crowded like other ones. When I go to the beach, I want it to be relaxing. Of course you have to go to the famous south beach, there I would go to Yumbrella, Barton G, Bar One, Wet willies, and mangos. It it can be interesting to walk down ocean drive and see whats going on. I would take them on a boat tour to see celebrity houses. I love to shop at Aventura mall, bal harbour and sawgrass. I would also, take them to the Vizcaya museum and gardens, I think the property is beyond beautiful!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My parents! If it wasn’t for such a strong support system from my parents, I would not be the person that I am today! They are there for me whenever I need advice or any type of help. They have instilled such great morals and values that have helped me in accomplishing any goal that I have set for myself. I truly am blessed to have them as my parents. They are such great role models and without them nothing would be possible.
