Hi, I’m Laura, a blogger living in Chicago. In 2012 I began Canary Times, a fashion and lifestyle blog, as a creative outlet while completing my business degree. Canary Times quickly became a place for me to share my favorite fashion and décor items and connect with so many wonderful people. In 2014, after much reflection, I decided to rebrand Canary Times to Renaissance Girl; my new blog will continue to be an extension of my travels, event hopping and love for food.

Thank you so much for reading!
