‘Love Is Blind’ Lauren and Cameron Hamilton talk about the night’s highlights

0

It all started with a social experiment consisting of pods and dramas. What are we talking about? The Netflix reality show “Love Is Blind” hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey.

If you haven’t already binged both seasons and the adjacent reunion, “Love Is Blind” is a show that helps singles find their perfect love – without ever seeing each other face to face.

Does the show lead to real relationship success? Not for everyone, but some have defied all predictions and succeeded.

Lauren and Cameron Hamilton are part of this lucky group, and they sat down for an exclusive interview with the New York Post.

Since “Love Is Blind: The Reunion” season 1 wrapped in 2020, “life has truly been such a blessing,” according to the happy couple.

“We bought a new house together last year,” Cameron explained. “We just really lived life.”

Of course, we had to wonder how the unconventional couple transformed their new living space into more than just a home and into a home.

“Turning a house into a home is a matter of love,” Lauren said. “Having your friends and family there, making memories in space is special…and making it truly yours is key.”

Cameron celebrated her 32nd birthday on July 3 and to celebrate, the couple renovated the garden to “prepare it for a backyard barbecue” and future summer evenings.

Looking forward to the big day and the celebrations ahead, the couple shared their number one party planning tip: make sure the guest list and music are up to snuff.

“It all depends on the guest list. People are partying,” Cameron told the Post. “And the playlist,” Lauren added.

The couple agreed that new house music from Beyoncé and Drake would be included in the music lineup by far and seemed to be aligned with almost every decision. But we wondered, “What happens when we disagree, whether it’s planning a party or the relationship as a whole?”

The couple joked and said they just poured a glass of Campo Viejo wine and drank, but in truth they “just [listen] to one another.

“You’re so busy trying to get your point across that it’s good to also listen to what the other person is saying instead of talking to yourself,” Lauren said.

Beyond listening to each other, the couple also strives to cultivate their differences for good.

“It’s definitely important to play to each other’s strengths,” Cameron said. “For example, if it’s planning a party, I tend to be the one who does a lot more cooking. Lauren will probably be the one making the drinks.

Lauren and Cameron Hamilton’s tips and tricks for party planning and beyond didn’t stop there. The cheerful couple also spilled their favorite party essentials exclusively with The Post below.
