What Lauren Has Learned

#10YearsSinceLaguna

Hills2City were almost surprised to realize this week that it’s been 10 years since Lauren, Lo, Stephen, Dieter, Trey and the rest of the Laguna Beach crew graduated from High School!  It’s one of those moments we all go through in our own lives; you know how much you’ve grown and changed, but at the same time, high school just doesn’t seem all that long ago.

Lauren was doing some reflecting this week, posting a Letter to Her 18 Year Old Self on her website.  Here’s what 28-year-old Lauren had to say:

1. Wear sunscreen!

This is an obvious one. When I was a teenager, tanning was the mode du jour and I was all about getting that sun-kissed (or tanning bed orange…) glow. I felt invincible, and never thought twice about the skin damage caused by UV rays. Nowadays, I’ve learned to embrace my natural skin tone in the hopes that it will mean less wrinkles and a lower risk of skin cancer as I get older. I never leave home without my SPF.

2. Enjoy being young.

They say that youth is wasted on the young, and I couldn’t agree more. When I was 18, I was in a hurry to grow up. Instead, I wish I would have taken a beat to just enjoy being young. So many things are new when you’re that age and the level of responsibility is still low. It’s important to enjoy that phase just like any other.

3. Be an individual.

Being 18 years old means you’re at an age of many exciting changes. For so long you’ve gone to school with the same people, and everything you’ve done is with the same group of friends in more or less the same environment. Then, for the first time you get to go off on your own and make real, conscious decisions about where you want life to take you. You get to choose your school, your major, and what kind of person you’ll become. So when you’re making these decisions, be an individual. It’s the best way to discover who you really are.

Best Dressed: 2014 Teen Choice Awards

#BestDressed

The 2014 Teen Choice Awards were held last night, Sunday, August 10 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.  Hosted by Modern Family star Sarah Hyland, the big winners of the night were Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, One Direction, Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence.

It was a fantastic red carpet this year, and we had trouble choosing our best dressed!  Hills2City were immediately wowed by Glee star Lea Michele, who wore a black, white and pastel pannelled mini dress by Fausto Puglisi and silver strappy heels by Christian Louboutin.

Hostess with the mostess Sarah Hyland looked stunning on the red carpet, wearing a Marc Jacobs sequinned mini dress.  Sarah highlighted her gorgeous pins with a pair of black strappy heels and wore her hair in a high ponytail.

Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell wore one of the sexiest looks of the night, wearing a white lace two-piece look from Misha Collection.  The show won the award for Choice Drama and Shay won for best hair in our opinion!  She wore her hair in a loose side braid, which has become one of the hair styles of the summer.

Keeping Up With The Kardashians won the award for Choice TV Reality Show and it was Kylie Jenner’s 17th birthday, so it only seems right that the youngest Kardashian beat her sisters in the style stakes.

Kendall may be the model of the moment and Kim looked gorgeous, but in Hills2City’s opinion it was Kylie who really stood out.  She wore a cropped black top and gold skirt with an asymetrical hem by Sass & Bide, accessorizing with a pair of lace-up black heels.

Hosted by Kelly Osbourne, the 16th Annual Young Hollywood Awards were held on Sunday, July 27, in Los Angeles; the stars really bringing their unique style to the blue carpet.

Young & Hungry star Jessica Lowndes was one of Hills2City’s best dressed, wearing a black and nude cropped top with a black cut-out skirt that featured silver details, by Three Floor.

Jessica accessorized with a pair of metallic Stuart Weitzman strappy heels and wore simple jewelry by Luv AJ.  The former 90210 star wore her hair straight and slicked back behind her ears.

Newly single Audrina Patridge was another of our favorites on the Young Hollywood Awards blue carpet.  Audrina looked summery and fresh in a white lace long sleeve cropped top and mini skirt, accessorizing with nude peep toe heels and a white clutch.

The 1st Look host wore her brunette hair in loose waves and wore dark nail polish on her fingers and toes.  Audrina’s make-up focused on her eyes with a smokey eye and lots of false lashes.

Vanessa Hudgens was honored with the Trendsetter of the Year Award on Sunday night, so it’s only fitting that her blue carpet look lived up to the title!

The Spring Breakers star gave homage to her favorite fashion era when she accepted her award, saying the 1970’s were “psychedelically amazing!”

Vanessa wore a blue halterneck Bongo crop top and white high-waisted Badgley Mischka pants.  She wore her hair in beachy waves and accessorized with silves bangles and an ostrich feather white clutch.

They’re Done

While her former co-stars on theHills Whitney Port and Lauren Conrad are preparing to marry their long-time boyfriends, Hills2City were sad to hear that Audrina Patridge and Corey Bohan have broken up.

The couple first got together in 2009, but as Audrina herself described to US Weekly last summer, “We’ve been off and on for almost five years.  But we’ve been solid.”

Corey and Audrina had previously parted ways in March 2011, but soon were back together and weren’t shy in sharing their love via twitter and instagram.  Audrina has described Corey in the past as “the love of my life” and shared that they were heading toward marriage, but sadly it seems they couldn’t make things work.

A source close to Audrina spoke to US on Tuesday, July 29, explaining, “She’s single right now.”

Audrina kept herself busy while news of the break-up became public; the 1st Look host attended Comic-Con in San Diego on Friday, July 25, allowing make-up artists to transform her into Mystique from X-Men.

On Sunday, July 27, the newly single star partied with friends at Bootsy Bellows for Katy Perry’s stylist Johnny Wujek’s birthday celebration.  “She was having a great time hanging and celebrating with her friends,” a source told E! News. “She was not telling anyone about it and wasn’t giving any indication that it happened.”

Audrina also gave fans an indication of her mindset on Sunday, sharing her thoughts via twitter, “You can’t start the next chapter in your life if you keep re-reading the last one. #future #dreams #followyourheart”

Did Brody Jenner Just Diss Kim Kardashian?

#FriendsWithTheEx

Kim Kardashian’s wedding to Kanye West was certainly a highlight of Kim and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan’s year (bar Rob Kardashian of course).  Someone who also missed Kim’s third wedding was her step-brother Brody Jenner, who told press at the time that he couldn’t attend the French wedding because he was working.

On his online show The Brody Jenner & Dr Mike Dow Podcast, Brody said in June, “Realistically, I had work commitments. And, you know, it was a long way away. It was in Paris, it’s not like it was right down the street. So that made it a little more difficult.”

The rumor was however, that Brody didn’t want to go to the star-studded wedding because his new girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter hadn’t received an invitation.

Brody and Kaitlynn were front and center for Kim’s ex Reggie Bush’s wedding though, posing with Reggie and his new wife Lilit Avagyan on their big day this Saturday, July 12, as well as sharing pics on Instagram.

Reggie famously dated Kim for three years, and Lilit was also pregnant with the couple’s first child at the same time as Kim was pregnant with North.

Brody has continued to insist that Kim wasn’t upset with his no-show at her wedding, explaining, “I wish Kim the best… I told her I wouldn’t be able to attend — she had no problem with it — and I think that that is all that matters, cause Kim was the one getting married.”

What do you think?  Do you think Brody is telling the truth or do you think Kim is feeling the burn?

Happy Birthday Khloe!

Khloe Kardashian celebrated her 30th birthday on a yacht in New York, on Friday, June 27.  Showing she has truly moved on from her ex-husband Lamar Odom, the birthday girl was seen kissing and hugging her rumored boyfriend, French Montana.

Khloe looked stunning in a white long sleeve maxi dress with peekaboo cut-outs, which she wore for most of the party, before changing into a comfy tracksuit to dance in.

French and Khloe have been seen together for a few months, but until Khloe’s party hadn’t confirmed their status. Showering his new girlfriend in presents, French gifted Khloe with a white jeep, an 18 karat gold ring with green Colombian emeralds, and two grills.

Although Khloe may have happily moved on, there are reports that Lamar  opened up to Khloe on her birthday. A source spoke to HollywoodLife, saying “He just wanted to tell her happy birthday and wish her well on this new decade in her life.  He even told her he ‘loves her’ and she said, ‘Thank you,’ but she didn’t say, ‘I love you’ back. He was slightly hurt by that but he understood.”

Don’t Tell Mr Tell

It will be no surprise to long-time fans of Lauren Conrad or theHills that Lauren had her Bachelorette weekend in Cabo.  Using the hashtag #DontTellMrTell, the Bride-to-be and her besties were all over social media, sharing special moments from the weekend with fans, and bringing back memories of the Laguna Beach days.

Lauren was joined in Cabo for a four-day weekend from Thursday, June 19, by longtime friends Lo Bosworth, Hannah Skvarla, Jilly Hendrix and Jeannie Scharetg.

The weekend looked to be the ultimate girls weekend, filled with awesome new memories and cute little “Lauren” touches like the Bachelorette cookie!  One of Lauren’s friends shared with US magazine this week, “The trip was more about relaxing and taking time off than raging.  The activities were wholesome—for the most part!”

One of the fun touches of the weekend were the temporary tattoos all the girls wore, shared by Lo on her Instagram. Too cute!

In amongst all the fun however, Lauren had a firm hold on her morals, leaving a restaurant after the DJ made a homophobic joke.  Lauren tweeted the incident, explaining “The Office in Cabo does not allow same sex couples to participate in couple games. Had to walk out. #equality #StopTheHate”

Mix & Match For Summer Perfection

Olivia Palermo is a style inspiration to Hills2City year round, so at the start of each new season it’s always a must-do to update our wardrobes with some Olivia-worthy pieces.

On Thursday, April 17, Olivia attended an event for IWC Shauffhausen Timepiece in New York, wearing two contrasting prints. As Lauren Conrad confirmed on Entertainment Tonight, mixing prints is a huge summer trend.

The trick is to go with prints of different sizes; as Olivia demonstrates with a black and white top with large spots and a pair of black and white pants with a tiny print.

Everything else in the outfit should be plain or one solid color, like Olivia’s black blazer.

To find similar pieces to Olivia’s, check out J-Crew for printed pants and Shopbop for cool printed tops.

Audrina And Coachella Are Made For Each Other

Along with her former co-star Whitney Port, and pretty much all of Young Hollywood, Audrina Patridge made her annual trip to Coachella in 2014.

Audrina brought her sister Casey Loza along for the first weekend of the music festival; the sisters going to the LED Day Club party at Hard Rock Palm Springs and the Details @ Midnight party.

The 1st Look host showed her hippy side, wearing a tie-dyed nude and chocolate brown maxi dress, accessorizing with flat studded sandals, multiple bracelets, large hoop earrings and oversize 70’s style sunglasses.

The Takeover

#theHillsMeetsMadeInChelsea

Stephanie Pratt may be over her ex-boyfriend Spencer Matthews, but that didn’t stop her from making a return to the show that brought them together, Made in Chelsea.

Stephanie has reportedly made quite an impact on the British show that’s apparently a lot like theHills, and sat down with UK Cosmopolitan magazine to talk about her surprise return:

Cosmo: How did you returning to MIC come about? “The show called me in January and asked me if I’d come back. They had this plan that no one was going to know and I’d surprise everyone in the cast, so Lucy Watson and I helped plan it and didn’t tell anyone; no one knew. I came back to London and then I couldn’t leave my hotel for three days.”

Cosmo: So all those reactions when you walked in were 1000% accurate? “Basically, they had eight cameras and everyone I talked to on the show were like ‘we had no idea what was going to happen because none of us had ever seen that many cameras’ – I guess they were just like lined up on every single cast member to have options to shoot everyone’s reaction. They knew it’d be something really crazy – everyone thought Caggie was coming back. The cast kept on nagging production asking ‘what’s happening?’ because they’d been there for hours. I did my scene and left and they literally put me in a cab back to my hotel and I couldn’t say hi to any of my old friends.”

Cosmo: But they must have all been texting you afterwards? “Obviously I saw Lucy later that night, and she said ‘Louise was not happy that you came back’.

Cosmo: How has it been with Spencer since? “I just really have no interest in being his friend, seeing him on camera is enough. Obviously I’m with Lucy every day and when we’re filming he’ll pull one of us aside and will say things like ‘You’re my favourite ex’ – he does that. When Lucy and I have dinner after filming we’ll discuss it and say ‘He’s so annoying, did he say this to you?’

While Stephanie was in town, UK Cosmo also had her do a Twitter takeover, to speak to fans about her beauty look and her days on theHills:

On The Hills

“Do you still talk to your fellow Hills cast members?”
SP: “yep, I still talk to all of the girls!! they are the best :)”

“Have you and Heidi made up since the show “The Hills”?”
SP: “Heidi is my sister!! we are very close… the 3 of us are like best friends nowadays!! miss her and spencer!!”

“Would you ever do big brother like Heidi and spencer did?”
SP: “i love the show but im not sure!!! seems crazy!!”

“Are you still friends with @LaurenConrad?”
SP: “yes, she is one of the sweetest humans on earth”

“What are Heidi and Spencer doing now?”
SP: “besides being the parents to 4 pups, they are working on a few shows”

On beauty

“What is your fave make up? You always looks stunning :)”
SP: “bare minerals, armani, nars, ester lauder and maxfactor are my faves.”

“What make-up r u wearing? And any brow filler? Or brow filler technique?”
SP: “I have hd brows from @ibrowsetc i love them!!! i wear bare minerals make up :)”

“You have the best skin! What moisturiser do u use?”
SP: “Dermalogica everything!!!!”

“Hey, can you recommend two beauty products you can’t cope without – one affordable and one high-end?”
SP: “maxfactor mascara the purple bottle one, and Kerastase re-charge hair mask”
