LC Lauren Conrad at Kohl’s

So it seems our lovely Lauren Conrad has been busy designing and working on her latest line which has been released and sold exclusively at Kohl’s. She originally designed a collection that got her feet wet in the fashion world and I’m glad she’s decided to move in the direction she has. A lot of people may not have taken her very seriously as a designer, but her latest collection, I think, really proves she should be designing clothes [on top of everything else she has going on].

Although I don’t shop at Kohl’s, I know a lot of young girls who may watch the Hills or just be a Lauren Conrad fans do shop at Kohl’s. What it says to me is that it’s accessible. It’s not an intimidating designer approach. It’s tangible and it’s a smart move, Miss LC.

I love that Lauren has decided to model her own clothes. Another smart move. The collection is pretty cute and current. It follows trends without being too much or going too far. It looks comfortable and chic and it’s a style women of a wider age group can wear.

Much like Lauren Conrad, I have hopes of branching out and building an empire. Shh, let’s keep between you and I, though. 😉

L.A. Candy It Is!

Hey guys! Thanks for your help in voting what I should read next. I decided to listen to you and so I’ve begun to read L.A. Candy by Lauren Conrad. I’m actually really enjoying it. It’s a fun teen read and I like the characters already.

I should start some sort of online book club. Wow, I just got ten times nerdier. haha

Has anyone read it already? Does anyone want to read it with me?

Happy reading. 🙂

Next Read: Help Me Choose!

I like to read.

Okay, so it’s not like I’m gonna trade in my TV for a Barnes & Noble credit card, but I enjoy reading. Usually during the year I have a lot of reading to do for school. So during the semester, I don’t really do a lot of leisure reading. I have maybe a few weeks before the fall semester begins and I’d like to read something I’d find interesting or entertaining.

So as I was on a quest to find my next read, I think I narrowed down my choices to the next few:

  1. My first option is to read Lauren Conrad’s L.A. Candy [and probably Sweet Little Lies soon after that]. I have been DYING to read her book, not because I anticipate it’ll be a great work of art or because I’ve heard great things about it or even because for some reason Lauren will magically suddenly be my friend and we’ll be shopping together at South Coast Plaza. No! I’m just curious to read what it was like for her to film “The Hills” and have some sort of insight to the madness! Plus, it’s a teen read, so it’s bound to be fun and satisfy my teenage schoolgirl side.
  2. It’s no secret that I love Kathy Griffin. So naturally, I’ve been itching to read her book Official Book Club Selection [and possibly her mom, Maggie’s book later…TIP IT!]. Here are my reasons why I want to read this book: (1) I love the cover; Kathy looks great! Plus, it’s funny – tiara, red dress, sash…uhm she looks like she’s winning some sort of freakin’ beauty pageant. Loveit. (2) I love the title. It’s funny! Oprah, Kathy’s love/fear is unparalleled. (3) It’s Kathy Griffin and I’m gay. I think it’s in my contract. I HAVE to read it. How else will I graduate?
  3. Chelsea Handler’s Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang is my third option. I started watching “Chelsea Lately” on E! and let me tell you, Chelsea’s a funny lady. Her cynical sort of dry humor totally works for me. Plus, she has a little person as a sidekick, Chuy. She loves vodka, sex, and being in your face. Loveit.
  4. And then there’s Sarah Silverman’s The Bedwetter. As obnoxious and inappropriate Sarah Silverman may be, I think she’s funny and I’m interested in reading what she has to say and see what her life has been like. “When God gives you AIDS (because you know, God gives you AIDS)…make…lemonades.” LOL Oh, Sarah!

So there you have it guys! Help me choose! What do YOU think I should read next?

Help me choose! Vote NOW!

Got Milk, Lauren Conrad?

Lauren Conrad has now joined the popular Got Milk? ad family. I guess calcium helped Lauren film a reality show, write a few books, and design some clothes. Pour me a glass! I wonder if they’d actually serve me a glass of milk at a bar. Hmm…lactose-free milk? Soy?

I like the ad! It’s a cute milk mustache! lol

“Be a trendsetter! Looking and feeling healthy will never go out of style. Making smart choices, like eating nutritious beauty foods including lowfat milk, will help you look and feel your best.”

You know what, Lauren? I WILL be a trendsetter! Loveit.

For the Love of Whitney

Let’s talk about the City. Let me just start off by saying that I LOVE Whitney Port. (Isn’t she gorgeous?) I watched her on the Hills and instantly loved her. She just seems like a person who I’d instantly be friends with. She kind of reminds me of my friend Nikki. Whitney’s just very personable and sincere. On The Hills, Whitney was Lauren Conrad’s co-worker/therapist/shoulder-to-cry-on. Her genuine positivity and level-headedness just made her stand out next to her dramatic co-stars.

So Whitney went from being a good listener and advice-giver at Teen Vogue and People’s Revolution and moved to New York to further her career in fashion. Season one of The City introduced us to a new group of friends (and lovers). Didn’t think too much of Jay. (I’ve learned to stay away from cute Australians!)

Season two has really focused in on Whitney and her new friend Roxy (ugh!) and the lauch of Whitney Eve (Whitney’s fashion line). It reminds me of what The Hills used to be like: drama here and there, friendships and love, and career-driven young women. It seems like The Hills is all about nothingness and petty drama about more nothingness.

Okay, so here’s why I don’t like Roxy Olin: for all you super-obsessed Hills fans, not that I’m super-obsessed…well…anyway, Roxy first appeared on The Hills as Stephanie [she]Pratt’s little sidekick at the confrontation at Opera Nightclub where Stephanie confronts Brody and Lauren saying psycho things like, “Brody…what are you doing on the dark side? …Come home with us!” Uhm…what a crazy bitch, right? Well, suddenly good ol’ Roxy goes from being Stephanie’s fighting buddy to appearing on The City?? Super sketch. It seems that Roxy and Whitney went to high school together. I’m over it. Maybe Lauren can make a guest appearance as Whitney’s pal again? Or just bring a new girl in altogether. One that isn’t affiliated with the Pratt family. Oh, and don’t get me started on Olivia Palermo.

Anyway, I haven’t really been keeping up with the show as much as before, but I always catch up on since they have all the episodes available to watch online for free. In fact, I think I’ll do that right now!

P.S. I love Kelly Cutrone. “You can kiss her on the forehead, but if I were you, I’d hold a gun to her back and tell her to stand up straight.” Loveit.

Audrina: Clueless but Beautiful

Audrina Patrige

Okay, so after Lauren Conrad left The Hills, I wasn’t sure what to make of the show. Although Audrina Patrige seems to be clueless when it comes to love and relationships sometimes, her beauty is undeniable.

She kind of reminds me of one of my friends. He’s gorgeous but comes across as ditzy from time to time. lol
