T his weeks Woman of the Week is Influencer, Elizabeth Geary. Late to the IG fame game, Elizabeth has stolen the spotlight. I discovered this look-alike Liv Tyler bigger than life personality accidentally. The rest was history. I was instantly a fan of Elizabeth, who moonlights as Lauren Elizabeth on Instagram.
With so many social media personalities playing the numbers game to gain followers, Elizabeth has maintained a humble, girl next-door New England vibe. Although by the looks of her natural hollywood glamour it is evident this beauty is a SoCal native who will never sell herself short for a fanbase. What I adore most about Elizabeth is her authenticity in each caption she shares on social media. She is engaging and intriguing. There is something to be said about this growing starlet who is loved for being herself. Elizabeth proves she is just as likable and iconic as her favorite celebrity influencer Tezza. My only confusion is why isn’t she on the silver screen already?
From her mouth to our ears, I agree Elizabeth is a mix between “elegant and epic.” She is a true role model and woman to be admired. Elizabeth has taken creativity from ordinary to extraordinary. If you are not familiar with this weeks Woman Of The Week Elizabeth Geary follow her IG stories and live vicariously through her journeys. Elizabeth will inspire you to see the beauty in all things just as she does through the simplicity of her candid and curated photos.

1. Any major highlights this year?
Starting my IG account, ElizabethElegance. I have dreamed of doing something like this for years and finally got the courage to just jump in. I now see it is nothing to be afraid of. I love working on my page and I constantly try new things to improve my followers experience.
2. How would you describe your personal style?
My personal style doesn’t really have a name, but it is somewhere between elegant and epic. I love dramatic pieces that make a statement, but still have some feminine flair. My favorite thing to do when shopping is to find a funky piece and just try it on. Sometimes I love it and somethings I hate it, either way it was fun to try on something out of the ordinary. And 99% of the time that is the item I get completed on the most.
3. One travel destination you really want to visit?
Traveling has been apart of my life since childhood. My traveled locations currently make up 13 countries, 26 US states and no plans of stopping. Next on the horizon will most likely be Thailand, with many local US trips in between. After that I would love to go back to Ireland, but this time also visit Scotland and England. The places I currently have on my bucket list are endless.
4. What song do you have on repeat at the moment?
Having recently gone to Harry Styles’ concert his song “Sign of Times” is currently on repeat. It is a beautiful and touching song, with a deep meaning. If you haven’t come across it yet, definitely check it out.
5. Name one thing you can’t live without?
Besides my husband 😉 probably my puppy dog Blu. He is a 90 pound Weimaraner and goes with me everywhere!
6. What’s your philosophy about beauty?
I love this question! My philosophy on beauty is simple: true beauty is a reflection of God. I believe we become most beautiful when we emulate God by loving others selflessly. What is more beautiful than a picture of Mother Teresa feeding the abandoned and forgotten people of Calcutta? It is the love and compassion shown to the less fortunate that we find beautiful, not the fancy lighting or Mother Teresa’s bone structure. We have all met someone we find attractive, then they start talking, and we realize they are rude and inconsiderate. Quickly that same person is no longer attractive but repulsive. Photography is an art, but the camera can only capture beauty so far if inner beauty is not present.
7. What is something only a few people know about you?
I’m a pretty open book, but something my followers don’t know about me is that I am from Southern California (LA born). People always ask how I ended up in Connecticut and my answer is always simple, I love my husband. We meet while we attended college in Ohio, once marriage was on the horizon, we decided to settle down in his home town in Connecticut. But I regularly visit my family in SoCali, so I have the best of both worlds.
8. Secret to a killer photograph?
One thing every amazing photo has, that gives it viral potential is to have at least one interesting element, weather that be the location, a pose, or an object, there needs to be at least one thing in the photo that you don’t see everyday. In a photo of a girl holding a baby tiger, clearly the tiger in a girls arms would be interesting enough. However if you find yourself without a tiger and standing in front of a cool colored wall, then add an element of interest with the way you are standing. Have the wind blow your hair in your face, sit in a funky but flattering way, have a friend jump in the picture and have a bubble gum blowing contest with the picture taken right when the bubble pops. This is were your true creativity can shine, and you can take your photo from everyday to extra ordinary.
9. Who is your IG celebrity icon?
My one and only is Tezza. With her every post I continue to be amazed with how creative she can be in her photos. I spend hours studying what makes her pictures so interesting. I have seen others try to take her exact photo but they always come short. In my opinion she blows everyone out of the water when it comes to creative photos. One day, I hope to meet her.
10. Any exciting plans you are looking forward to before the end of the year?
My husband and I are planning our one year anniversary trip. The location keeps changing, but where ever we end up going it will be exciting enough just to be with him.
