For starters, I love Lauren’s fashion style. It’s the number one reason why I was so hooked on her reality shows, Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County and The Hills.
I know I’m not supposed to, but sometimes, I envy her.
This goes out to the people who didn’t watch The Hills: Lauren moved from Laguna Beach to Los Angeles to pursue Fashion Design in the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM). While attending FIDM, she also worked as an intern in Teen Vogue. In the hit reality series, Lauren had to juggle school, work, partying with friends (and “frenemies”), family issues, and of course, boys, all at the same freakin’ time. She also got a chance to work for Kelly Cutrone’s People’s Revolution, a fashion PR firm. She was only 19 when The Hills first aired on MTV.
I also love Lauren’s personality. Most of the time, her social calendar is packed, but she knows when to say “No” and when she’s had enough. She’s always there for her friends. She definitely knows what she wants and she knows how to get it.
When she was 23, her very first novel (targeted to young adults) L. A. Candy was published. In 2010, Sweet Little Lies and Sugar and Spice were published, completing the L. A. Candy trilogy. She also wrote a style guide, Lauren Conrad Style.
As of the moment, Lauren is working on her new fashion line, Paper Crown, her third after The Lauren Conrad Collection and LC by Lauren Conrad. She launched a beauty website with her hairstylist and makeup artist called “The Beauty Department”. She is also currently writing a spin-off book series of her L. A. Candy trilogy, plus another style guide, Lauren Conrad Beauty.
I simply love Lauren Conrad!

This movie is a bad–and I mean, bad–adaptation of the urban legend, “The Baby-Sitter and the Man Upstairs.”
