Lydia McLaughlin Says Goodbye to Real Houses for Jewelry Line
Reality TV Star, founder and Managing Editor of BEVERLY HILLS LIFESTYLE Magazine, mother, wife, and Orange County native Lydia McLaughlin, recently said goodbye to BRAVO's "Real Housewives of Orange County" to pursue her designer dreams with her new limited edition handcrafted jewelry line LYDIA M Jewelry. Made out of braided 18K gold wire, layered necklaces, Swarovski crystals and vintage chains, each piece is designed by Lydia herself, handcrafted in California from the finest materials with 10% of the profits going to the iSanctuary, an organization that provides rehabilitation options for survivors of human trafficking, both domestic and abroad. The jewelry is available for purchase at the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach as well as online at LYDIAMJEWELRY.COM.
A new "Housewives" fan favorite, Lydia shines on camera as she juggles her marriage to her loving husband of 7 years, Doug, her two sons, 4-year-old, Stirling and 2-year-old, Maverick, her successful businesses, all while maintaining a vibrant social life. Together with husband Doug McLaughlin, Lydia has created an empire of her own that began with a luxury marketing agency, SKYLAB Media Group, Inc. followed by SKYLAB Modern Art, a chic gallery housing works from contemporary artists discovered during their world travels. In addition, Doug and Lydia both founded and manage BEVERLY HILLS LIFESTYLE Magazine, a sophisticated and high-end luxury/lifestyle publication that serves one of the most exclusive zip codes in the country.
Raised in Newfoundland, Canada Lydia is the granddaughter of the founder of NTV, the largest privately held multi-media company in Canada and was exposed to the exclusive world of media and business at a very young age. Through this extraordinarily unconventional upbringing she learned creativity, a love for media and developed a desire for entrepreneurism; quality's that have carried her through life.
