I didn’t want it to sound like a manual. I wanted it to sound like a friend or a big sister explaining it to you.

Honestly the biggest (challenge) was time. A lot of late nights and almost losing it over my laptop, but that was the only thing. It got a little rough.

On the vacation to Cabo, I wore a bathing suit on the beach for the first time in years. Usually I’m just petrified. A couple of years ago someone zoomed in on my cellulite and it was so mean. I took it really personally. I haven’t worn a bathing suit in L.A. in years because of that.

One of my biggest goals, especially with writing YA novels, is just to have people enjoy reading. I remember being in high school and it was so forced because everything I read through most of school was assigned reading. I love the idea of giving girls a book that they can read and enjoy reading.

Paper Crown

Conrad launches fashion line Paper Crown at Nordstrom’s Fashion’s Night Out event. The line features pieces that are more expensive than her line at Kohl’s, but can be considered investment clothing pieces. The line is available at Nordstrom stores.

Paper Crown is something I’ve done on my own which has been really fun. Quality was a really big focus. We wanted to do really beautiful fabrics, really focus on getting a beautiful fit so the pieces are classic and timeless and can be worn through the season.

Towards the end, I was so tired. I was showing up to the club in flip-flops, and [the cameramen] would be like, ‘Great, now we can’t film your feet, because you couldn’t bother putting on a pair of shoes.’

It’s the idea of creating your own glamour. The focus will be on really great fits, fabrics, and details. It won’t be overly trendy, nothing that’s trying too hard. I’m very excited about it, but I’m also a little nervous. I’m doing it all on my own this time.

Sugar and Spice


200px-Sugar_and_Spice_Lauren_ConradConrad releases Sugar and Spice, her third and final trilogy novel, which follows  Jane Roberts from the opening night of her reality show through her realizations of good and bad relationships she has fostered throughout the series.

The first book was the most difficult to write as I was new to the process and there are so many writes and rewrites etc. Not to say book 2 and 3 were easy but they were more enjoyable as I could be creative rather than setting up characters.

lauren-conrad-cover-seventeen-magazine-march-2010Conrad appears on the cover of the March 2010 issue of Seventeen magazine. She talks about The Hills launching her career and about a rumour that her boyfriend didn’t want to be on The Hills.

False. It never even came up, because by the time I met Kyle, I had already perfected my ‘double life.’ There was my TV life and my real life. Most of my closest friends were never on the show; my family was rarely on. I think it’s better that way. It’s not normal to put every part of your personal life on camera. You have to have something for yourself or you’ll go crazy.

Sweet Little Lies


200px-Sweet_Little_Lies_Lauren_ConradConrad releases the second novel in the her trilogy series. The novel titled Sweet Little Lies continues to follow character Jane Roberts after she leaves Los Angeles. In the book Jane finds herself in a tight spot when scandalous photos of her are released and she must find her way out of this mess.

The first book was a learning experience. I had to learn the whole process and I think I also had to learn to schedule writing time for myself. I had lived my life for years on a schedule and this was the first time where I would have full days to write. It was also teaching myself how to do that. Everything was very new to me. The second time around, I had a better idea of how it was done.

Guest judge

Cameo/Guest AppearanceTV Appearance

Conrad is a guest judge on cycle 13 of America’s Next Top Model. Conrad is only signed on the judges panel for one show in the contest series and said she might considered hosting a show of her own in the future.

I wouldn’t do a show like The Hills. Nothing with my personal life, but possibly something hosting. I think I have a little bit of time to figure out what I’m going to do next.

L.A. Candy


200px-Lauren-Conrad_L.A._Candy_CoverConrad releases first novel titled L.A. Candy. The book is the first installment in a trilogy that follows Jane Roberts who moves to Hollywood and gets cast in her own reality show. The book becomes a New York Times Best Seller.

I didn’t take anything specifically that happened to me. The only thing that I did was … it was a way to show not necessarily me but just the other side of being on a show like ours. For everyone that’s done it I think you see one side and you don’t see the other. It’s kind of an interesting story to tell.

Leaves The Hills

Conrad announces she is leaving The Hills for other career opportunities in fashion. Since filming The Hills Conrad has been working on her own clothing line and says she is excited to live her life without cameras following her around. The Hills will bring in Kristin Cavallari as the main character to replace Conrad.

It’s bittersweet. I’ve spent the last five years making every decision be about the show. People I date have to be able to film, the places I work have to let us film and the places I live have to have set lighting. I’m ready to do things on my own. I loved doing it and had so much fun, but it came to a point where I had done it long enough.

Family Guy

TV Appearance

Conrad voices herself as a character on Family Guy. In the episode character Brian—voiced by Seth MacFarlane—picks up Conrad’s character and thinks that she might be his soulmate.

The most exciting part is to see what you look like animated. I think that I’m basically just a blonde character though, on this episode.

Cameo/Guest AppearanceFilm Appearance

Conrad stars in feature film Epic Movie. Conrad plays a satirical version of herself in the film with co-star Carmen Electra.

I don’t want to act. I tried it. … I don’t enjoy it, and I can’t make a career out of something I don’t really like. It’s not that fun, and I’m not that good at it.

The Hills

TV Appearance

Conrad stars in MTV reality television series The Hills. The Hills is a follow up to the series Laguna Beach MTV aired through 2006. The series follows old characters from Laguna Beach like Lo Bosworth and introduces new cast members including Heidi Montag, Audrina Patridge and Whitney Port.

The Hills is filmed exactly the same as Laguna. So when people started picking out these very little things, it was weird to me because anyone who has worked on a reality show knows how they’re filmed.

Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County

TV Appearance

Conrad stars in MTV reality television series Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County. The series follows Conrad and a group of her friends and classmates of Laguna Beach High School for three seasons. Other than Conrad the show’s main characters include Stephen Colletti, Kristin Cavallari and Lo Bosworth.

It was just a big group of friends being themselves. I think it’s impossible to do that in this day and age of reality TV.

Lauren Conrad born in Laguna Beach, California


Lauren Katherine Conrad is born in Laguna Beach, California to architects Kathy Conrad and Jim Conrad. Conrad has one younger sister Brenna Conrad and one younger brother Brandon Conrad.

Conrad began her interest in fashion throughout her childhood. Conrad’s father says that Conrad wasn’t the best student, but that he could see that she had an interest in fashion early in her life.

Lauren wasn’t a great student—she wasn’t that interested. We figured out along the way that she was an artist and her real love was fashion.

Conrad agrees:

I think that I get bored easily with things.
