Lauren Scruggs Opens Up About Horrific Accident In New Memoir

Filed under: Fashion SmashionInspirationModelsTwitterBookz


Lauren Scruggs sure has come a long way since her horrible airplane accident last year.

Despite losing her left eye and left hand, the model slash blogger believes the entire experience has made her a better person.

Lauren explains in her memoir, Still Lolo: The Inspiring True Story:

"I came to see how there was so much more to my life than being worried about how I looked."

Scruggs also goes into detail about what happened on that fateful day, writing:

"I remember the sky was black; we were on the dark side of the plane. It was December 3, 2011, and after that split second, I remember absolutely nothing."

Lauren also goes into detail about her recovery and of course, how her faith played a huge role.

Sounds like it's going to be quite the inspirational story!

Lauren's book will be available on November 15th for $10.

After suffering what was described as her "toughest week yet", Lauren Scruggs was on the up and up this week.

According to her mom Lauren's physical pain has subsided and she got fitted for her prosthetic eye.

Cheryl Scruggs wrote on Thursday morning:

Last Saturday was a big day. Bittersweett.

Jeff, myself, Lo and Britt showed up at 9am at the ocularist. We didn't know what to expect, other than it would be an all day process from 9am -5pm. Another new step….. the time had come for Lo to be fitted for her prosthetic eye.

So we proceeded through the day, one step at a time. All four of us would go into the room, and go through another step. Sometimes we waited in the waiting room for a while, other times we could leave for a while to walk around, or go to lunch.

She was fitted and measured. The ocularist carefully painted and shaped the new eye. By 5pm, it was done, and her new eye was in place. It is beautiful.

It's wonderful to hear Lauren's pain is minimal, but Cheryl added it's "the emotional pain that is the tough one".
