Book Club: And Our Next Read Is…
Fall is the perfect time to curl up with a comfy blanket and book, so I thought it would be great to start another installment of our LaurenConrad.com Book Club. While I’m excited to read all of the books on our fall reading list, the one book I’ve been dying to read most of all is…The Fault in Our Stars by John Green! And I’m excited to announce that it will be the book for this Book Club.
Even though the movie already came out, I’ve heard so many rave reviews about this book that I cannot wait to dive into it. Here’s Amazon’s book description:
Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.
Sounds like an incredible read! I hope you all participate in our Fall Book Club.
Are you going to join me in reading our new book?
If yes, RSVP here and read to the end of Chapter 12.
On October 29th, we will be having our first check-in where I will ask you questions related to the first half of the book. If you’ve participated in Book Club before, you know how enjoyable these book discussions are. I will also announce the date of my live book chat on October 30th, so start reading and get excited!

Primp Tip: The Secret to Smooth & Soft Skin
There’s no better foundation for your beauty routine than healthy, hydrated skin. Let’s face it, we all want gorgeous, glowing skin. But when your daily routine gets to be a bit too busy, it’s easy to skip some of the most important skincare steps—exfoliating and moisturizing. They’re really the key to keeping your skin looking and feeling its best. I’m always on the lookout for a great new product to try. And for me, it’s also important that what goes on my skin is as natural as possible, without any scary chemicals or fillers. Which brings me to my newest discovery…
Style Guide: Investment Pieces
As the wise Carrie Bradshaw once said, “I like my money right where I can see it… hanging in my closet.”Creating the perfect closet—and wardrobe—is an art form. I like to think that the recipe for success is a handful of fun, trendy pieces and a foundation of classic wardrobe staples. It’s smart to invest in timeless staples rather than the more frivolous items because they’ll never go out of style. Plus, you can build the rest of your wardrobe around them.
All Things Pink
According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women (except for skin cancers) and about 1 in 8 women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime. These women are our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, and friends. To support them and show them our love, I thought it would be a great idea to find celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness month with a roundup of stylish products that benefit the cause. Happy shopping!
My Favorite Halloween Costumes
Halloween is creeping closer and since you all have been voting on what my costume should be this year I’ve been working hard to get it ready. While this year’s ensemble is not ready to be revealed just yet, I thought it would be fun to take a stroll down memory lane and feature some of my costumes from years past. Here are some of my Halloween highlights…
Lauren Conrad Dishes on Picking a Wedding Dress, Her Halloween Costume: Watch Now!
Being a fashion designer can put even more pressure on a bride picking out her wedding dress. At least, that was the case for Lauren Conrad, who tied the knot with her fiancé William Tell in September.
“It’s really hard because it’s so much pressure on one day, you’ve gotta pick one look,” the Paper Crown designer, 28, said in her first post-wedding appearance at the 5th Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic on Saturday, Oct. 11.
The couple, who just returned from their European honeymoon in Italy and Greece, is now preparing for one of Conrad’s favorite holidays, Halloween. But this time around, she left the wardrobe selection up to her fans.
“On my website we did a poll and I let people vote,” she said of her costume choice. “We shot it like a DIY, and we shot it step-by-step for the site.”
Of the possible choices, the former Hills star listed a rain cloud, a ringleader with her dog Chloe as her lion, Little Red Riding Hood, and a mermaid.
