Still Summer, Start Falling

Lauren Conrad unveiled another line of newbies today from her ever-popular LC Lauren Conrad collection at Kohl’s which keep the summer in mind while there’s a little season left, but gets ready for autumn that’s fast approaching, which means it’s transition time in fashion.

Lauren begins with what’s become a popular staple with LC Kohl’s being the print fit and flare dress, this piece Lauren’s modelling comes in floral black, a black canvas filled with a steady vine that plushes light green leaves and dark green leaves and tiny light/ dark pink blossoming flowers.

The next look for summer to fall from LC Kohl’s are Lauren’s print flounce sleeve top, super soft ankle jeggings, and pink tassel drop earrings for anyone that’s looking to add new staples to their closet collection, Lauren too proclaims that bell sleeves and blue jeans will always be her staples.

Pizza Once Removed

But instead of designated gluten free products, Lauren Conrad’s Allison Norton today goes entirely into nature when Allison opens up the recipe box once again to make a cauliflower crust barbecue chicken pizza, a pizza that’s gluten free only because there is no flour doughy crust.

To make this cauliflower crust, you need fresh cauliflower or cauliflower rice, shredded mozzarella cheese, an egg, dried oregano, crushed garlic, garlic salt, and olive oil with instruction, plus toppings of red onion, cut up chicken breast, barbecue sauce, cilantro, shredded mozzarella cheese, and grated parmesan cheese for a nice treat.

What’s Not To Learn?

You all know Lauren Conrad for her time on “Laguna Beach” and “The Hills”, the clothing lines Lauren’s produced like LC Lauren Conrad at Kohl’s, 2 trilogies of books, and websites that are fun and useful, but there are 10 facts today about Lauren you may not know.

The first thing Lauren hates is the color purple, Lauren will not wear or decorate anything in this red and blue mixture, Lauren doesn’t eat dairy because she’s allergic to it, Lauren is named after her mother’s maiden name who’s name is Lawrence, it rained on most of Lauren’s honeymoon, and Lauren loves a good pun.

Lauren surprisingly hates working out even though she post lots of workout post, but only does it with a friend, Lauren collects vintage apples at flea markets and antique shops, Lauren hates rudeness, Lauren’s old piece of clothing in her closet are her old ballet leotards, and Lauren keeps a $2 bill in her pocket for good luck.

Ask Lauren Anything

In today’s edition of Letter from Lauren to start the new month of August, Lauren makes the next 31 days about the public asking Lauren about anything that’s called Ask Me Anything August.

Lauren Conrad’s things to do before summer’s over

Get To The Beach Before It’s Out Of Season

Yes, we’re crossing that time where it’s getting dark earlier by the day, and the sunrises are back within the 6 a.m. hour, and it’s a day away from August, it only means that summer’s almost over, so Lauren Conrad and crew’s Tuesday Ten today challenge you to take up lots before Labor Day.

First, avoid the oven at all costs so you can eat cold meals like salads from all different plants and animals (the original couple to gossip about in school), shop for fruits and vegetables that are only in season, go surfing, walk barefoot anywhere you can, and read up on poetry.

Next, in those places you can walk barefoot, go too an entire weekend without driving, start a gratitude journal of 3 to 5 things you’re grateful for, go to an outdoor concert, color up your tresses, and make a no-bake dessert.

What Makes Your Face Look Good?

In a simple breakdown of facial care, Lauren Conrad and crew today compare and contrast chemical exfoliants with physical exfoliants, there’s obviously a world of difference to be looked at, but only one has great benefits in the long run.

Physical exfoliants are very affordable, but you must keep up with it a couple times a week, and avoid ones that have fruit pits and shells, chemical exfoliants are expensive, but are great if you suffer from acne, rosacea, and eczema, they reach deeper into the skin, they either can be done at home, or done professionally every six weeks that give outstanding results.

Lauren Conrad short hair styles times five

Barely Touch The Shoulder, Please

Lauren Conrad made a Monday out of styling one’s short hair in 5 ways, because there’s just that urge to cut due to the hot weather, or to give those long locks a break, or be inspired to seek a shorter and cleaner look.

Lauren starts out with the deep side parts look for those who part in the middle that want more volume in their lives, adding waves to a short is not only easier but add curls and texture in an instant, and braids make the bob fun while keeping hair out of your face.

The next 2 start with a pulled back look that makes difficult tiny pony tails possible while having a fancy look to your lob, and then there’s the classic stick straight look with its effortless middle part style, and one step sliding straightener method where you’re just 3 minutes from beautiful.

The 90’s Closet Is Wide Open

Within the past couple of years, the 1990’s have made a comeback onto the fashion scene, and Monday was no different for Lauren Conrad and her team as they introduced their latest fashion craving, being the ever-popular mini-skirt that ruled the nineties all the way.

Mini-Skirts comeback in renditions that are Madewell Stretch Denim A-Line Mini Skirt, Urban Outfitters Frayed Wrap Mini Skirt, Topshop Denim Miniskirt,  Reformation Bianca Denim Miniskirt, Eclair Pink Floral Tie Waist Wrap Skirt, H&M Denim Skirt with Embroidery, Urban Outfitters BDG Re-Made Denim Mini Skirt, and Free People Femme Fatale Pull On Skirt.

It’s What A Boss Does

Not hiring Shannon’s best friend, Taylor, pretty much made life a little more unpleasant for Shannon, as Kristin Cavallari demonstrated Sunday night on E!’s “Very Cavallari”, Shannon was vividly upset about Kristin decision, so Shannon called a meeting with Kristin.

In the meantime, Kristin’s hubby, Jay Cutler, got Kristin ready for the fact that they are moving to a new home, filling Kristin in on learning how to operate a tractor, a tractor because Kristin fears that they are going to be raising chickens in their new humble abode.

On the lighter side of Kristin’s life, Kristin excitely awaits a phone calls from her best friend, Kelly, who tells about her date with a Canadian guy, even though there’s no definite details about the romantic night out, Kristin and Kelly are both excited about Kelly’s new dating life ahead.

Back over to the drama at hand, Kristin finally deals with the issue of hiring best friends in the work place, Kristin didn’t hire Shannon’s friend, Taylor, because there’s a chance for clicks to form, leading to more drama over the course of time, so Kristin’s bottomline is if the drama doesn’t stop, then they’re not going to be working for Kristin anymore.

How Do You Machine Wash A Bikini?

Lauren Conrad’s Ilana Saul got into the summer spirit today talking about swimsuits, not to buy the latest one which many have already bought (or still are), but the best way to was your one-piece or two-piece, without the normal washer procedure.

Now don’t wash your swimsuit on a regular wash cycle, use the gentle cycle but don’t put it through the spin cycle, use mild dish shop and/ or plain old white vinegar instead of laundry detergent, use great big beach towels to pad your swimsuit while washing, and always hang dry your swimsuit.
