The Laura Lifestyle theme is a 3rd party Genesis Framework theme created for the eCommerce industry bloggers. Laura Lifestyle is a sleek theme with a minimal yet sophisticated layout, tons of features, and blazing page speed. The only drawback to this theme is the full-width layout is made up of three columns. This isn’t a look I like, but it could be perfect for you! One thing is for sure, this theme is unique. A sticky menu bar is included with the ability to add your social media follow links to the right-hand side. This is a perfect location to grow your social media following. Under this section is the place to upload the logo image.
The featured images on this theme are big, so make sure you are choosing the best quality images. Be sure to edit any images before uploading them, including the ones in your shop area. Do explore the demo version and see if this theme would suit your business! Remember, you can find additional Genesis framework customization tips in our Genesis Framework Tutorials category.

I mentioned earlier about the 3 columns as the main layout option and here is the preview. Keep in mind, I typically never see people using this layout. Perhaps this can be a new trend starting.
Please keep in mind that you will need to have the Genesis Framework already installed on your blog. The cost of the framework is $59.95. This will get you a lifetime membership and free updates for the framework, which is an awesome deal.
If you are a developer, you know you can customize these themes on your own for your clients and add more money to your packaged deals. The Pro Plus StudioPress package is perfect for professional bloggers and developers. Check out the details below.
