One day the children always come back home to visit, sometimes to stay, hopefully only for a while.
It’s one of an empty nest parent’s greatest desire.
Apparently once thought of as a rite of passage, during the great post 2000 recession when over 7 million Americans lost their homes, it’s not to be taken for granted.
Fortunately for us, our earth is a beautiful home and there are some wonderful citizens who are trying to ensure that the only home that we have as human beings will be one that we can always come back to.
The beautiful breathtaking shapely model Lauren Wells is such a person.
At her Facebook she shares that she is an Environmental Scientist with an extreme passion for our oceans and protection of biodiversity.
The earth certainly needs more people that fit that profile.
The creative and informative site themodelscientist.blogspot.com educates, “Laura is also an Environmental Scientist, having studied a Science degree and a Law degree, she is currently undertaking study in a Masters of Environmental Management. Laura has strong beliefs in preserving the natural state of our environments and educating those around her to help them make a difference. Laura is a clean ocean advocate and ambassadors for Take 3, Responsible Runners and 1 Million Women.”
Fascinating. She’s sexy and environmentally conscience.
We guess that makes her earthy super sexy.

Laura and her partner started their own beach cleanup team in their local area in conjunction with the Responsible Runners Campaign.
Ms. Wells has worked with Greenpeace on Australia’s largest ever environmental campaign ‘Cash for Containers’ and is currently working with the Boomerang Alliance to better Australia’s future in terms of waste and recycling.
I love this planet… I want to see the environment preserved and I want to see the human race preserved. And I’d like to see everybody living decently in a more equitable, kind-hearted, thoughtful, generous world.……..Ted Turner
The debate of what is viewed as healthy and what is not only beautiful and healthy continues to rage in the modeling community. In an interview with dailymail.co.uk Laura was very forthcoming in revealing the extreme measures her fellow modeling roommates had to endure to prepare for Fashion Week.
Laura briefly lived with thin models during her time in New York and shared that their agents instructed them to stick to a diet of one cracker and a couple of glasses of water.
They weren’t eating food but were taking prescription dietary pills to make up the difference. The irony is that many of them still were not getting booked for assignments anyway.
The government of France made a controversial decision to get involved.
On December 21, 2015, according to harvard.edu, “International models are often referred to as “Paris thin” because France is so prominent in the fashion industry. But last April, the French National Assembly passed a law that would ban the hiring of excessively thin models.”
The internationally read Huffington Post printed on April 3rd, 2015, “A new law passed in France on Friday that bans excessively thin fashion models, and imposes fines and possible jail time on the agents and fashion houses who hire them. The legislation, which was approved by French parliamentarians, states that agencies found employing models considered too thin could be fined up to 75,000 euros (approximately $83,000 USD) and face six months in prison.”
That should get any agency’s attention.
Speaking to the matter of size there is one standard for the modeling industry and another for society as a whole as to what is considered plus size. They enlighten at news.com.au, “The problems begin, according to Wells, when people misinterpret plus size within fashion to be plus size in real life. A size 14 is plus size in the modelling industry because the person is between 3-6 sizes larger than an industry-standard model. In real life, this might be considered an average size, but in fashion, it’s just not.”
What Femcompetitor Magazine likes about Laura is that she isn’t someone that just talks about the lightening rod subject matter but she actually tries to do something about it to exact change.
The informative and entertaining site refinery29.com highlights Laura’s plunge into the world of the designer. “Besides her work with Greenpeace and the Boomerang Alliance, the Aussie stunner has just released an eco-friendly swim collection for Swim Sexy, Swimsuits For All’s trend-driven swim range, launching just in time for Earth Day. Comprised of four ocean-inspired designs, the eco-conscious, curvy line is the first of its kind, offering a size range from 10-24. Also, all of the swimsuits are made from Recotex, a 100% recycled yarn that reuses spandex and polyester, and are seawater- and chlorine-tested.
But, Wells didn’t focus only on the granola-crunchy appeal; all of the suits are bright, sexy, and come in flattering shapes. With edgy aspects like mesh inserts, zippers, and plunging v-necklines, as well as prints that will inspire you to book a getaway ASAP, they have way more going for them than just eco-friendly material.”
Australia is so breathtaking beautiful that it serves as a reminder of why we need to work to diligently to preserve our home.
Laura is from Sydney.
Sydney, is the capital of New South Wales and one of Australia’s largest cities.
It is best known for its harbor front Opera House, with a distinctive sail-like design.
The population of Sydney at the time of the 2011 census was 4.39 million, 1.5 million of which were born overseas, representing many different nationalities and making Sydney one of the most multicultural cities in the world.
You probably didn’t know this. We sure didn’t.
There are more than 250 different languages spoken in Sydney and about one-third of residents speak a language other than English at home.
Sydney has an advanced market economy with strengths in finance, manufacturing and tourism. Its gross regional product was $337 billion in 2013, the largest in Australia. There is a significant concentration of foreign banks and multinational corporations in Sydney and the city is promoted as Asia Pacific‘s leading financial hub.
In terms of the natural beauty that surrounds Sydney, the local community is very blessed. The fantastic destination site sydney.com welcomes us. “With its network of lush green spaces, leafy public parks and beautiful gardens, Sydney’s natural environments are the ideal setting to explore the great outdoors. Sydney Harbor’s islands are among some of Sydney’s most popular natural attractions.
Sydney is also surrounded by national parks, many within easy reach of the city. Sydney’s national parks offer a diverse range of landscapes from rainforests to rugged bush and even gorgeous bays and beaches. Don’t miss Ku-ring-gai National Park in Sydney’s north, great for bushwalks, and the Royal National Park, one of Australia’s oldest national parks.”
So much to go for.
If we each take responsibility in shifting our own behavior, we can trigger the type of change that is necessary to achieve sustainability for our race or this planet. We change our planet, our environment, our humanity every day, every year, every decade, and every millennia.…..Yehuda Berg
We are fortunate to enjoy a gorgeous beauty like Laura who appears to be just as beautiful on the inside as out. Our precious earth can never have enough caring friends like Laura. Kudos to her and her partner and friends for helping to preserve our home.

One day, at least once, we all want to return home.
