It's the second Monday of the month which means it's time for another blog post! I had planned to share how transitioning to an alkaline vegan lifestyle is going, but I'm currently producing my first solo show ever and it's taking up all of my time. However, it's 100% related to the blog, because I'll be sharing details about my eczema journey and dealing with various insecurities. If you've been following me for a while you know my motto is "do it afraid," and believe me, producing a solo show for the first time is scary! I'm doing so many things I've never done before, but I'm so excited to perform and share my story.
If you're in the greater Seattle area come check out the show on March 18 at Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute. You can purchase tickets here: https://justdupree.brownpapertickets.com
It's going to be a fun night catered by That Brown Girl Cooks with healthy vegan options and specialty drinks. If you want to know more check out the video below and come back on April 8th for a recap to find out what I learned producing my first solo show. Much love friends!

I'm Lauren, aka Just Du Pree, and I want to thank you for reading. This is a space where I share my very personal journey healing from eczema and topical steroid withdrawal (among other things), life lessons I've learned along the way, and occasionally the thoughts of an awkward Black girl (no Issa Rae). I'm a performer and filmmaker, so if you feel so inclined, pop over here to see what goes on in my mind on the regular. If you like what you see, you can stay up to date with my work here. Much love, friends!
