misslawn

My name is Lanie… ‘Misslawn” if you nasty and I’m the founder & creative director of Hellz & BOTB. I'm NOT the cutesy, damsel in distress type chick… more like the balls to the wall, book worm type. I’m freakishly strong, a wanna-be magician, and short but definitely not sweet. When not obsessing over my latest read or cookin’ up some new-new shit for the ladies, you can find me stuffing my face, shopping OR stuffing my face while shopping.
