About Me

Hello There! Welcome to my World.

Meet me -I’m Lavanya Ranganathan (yes, it is quite a mouthful name to pronounce, and it is supposed to mean “beauty” in Sanskrit , in case you want to know).

I am a 20 something , currently based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where I work as an engineer (like a typical South Asian),  in the medical device industry, during a good part of the day. I love both cats and dogs and don’t own any.

An Intovert with a touch of quirk,and a voracious reader- at heart, with this blog I would like to bring to my audience an extension of my character,  my love for writing and my perspectives on various topics. To share my creative musings and rambling on life in general and some fun tidbits ,to be able to creatively express myself about all things I am passionate about- in a nutshell.

Additionally, I love to experiment with anything possible. I prefer minimal yet spunky and cozy, elegant yet affordable , stylish yet not over the top. I do things from hand making decor items to mostly scavenging unconventional thrift shops and other stores to decorate my room/home, or random fashion finds that dont cost a fortune- mostly by finding dupes as a cheaper alternative and things like that.

Which is why ,My blog ‘Lavishly Faux’  (that also has a part of my name) has been created with a goal of centering my content on things that I find quirky, funny, things that -keep me going, inspire me , with a creative touch and what all I enjoy the most- as a combined result of my love for shopping and curiosity that reflects my personal style. This is my platform to share my ideas, tips and views on everything lifestyle- the way I see it.

Things that may be faux and still feel lavish.
