What Lauren Has Learned




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.

True Friends (Help You Get A Discount At Vera Wang?)




Real friendship never dies, as old Laguna Beach pals Lauren Conrad and Trey Phillips prove with their annual New York ice-skating date in Bryant Park.

Lauren posted the above photo on her Instagram, saying “Annual iceskating with @TreyPhillips

Now color us excited, but the fact Trey is a designer for Vera Wang, and Lauren just happens to be engaged to the love of her life; maybe we will be seeing Lauren walk down the aisle in Vera Wang in 2014?

Not that Lauren needs a discount with all her reality tv, fashion and book empire money, but a side-benefit of having a bestie with connections is the ability to find something really special for the big day.

Back To Reality: Laguna Update




Hills2City keep you up to date with the lives of Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari but we don’t often have the opportunity to find out about the rest of the Laguna Beach cast.  Perez Hilton has delved into the lives of Jason Wahler, Jessica Smith, Stephen Colletti, Dieter Schmitz, Trey Phillips and Lo Bosworth to share their updates!

As Hills2City recently shared, Jason Wahler got married to long-time love Ashley Slack.  Perez shares, “After appearing on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, it looks like Laguna bad boy Jason Wahler might have finally cleaned up his act! The same day ex-GF Lauren Conrad announced her engagement news, Jason married model Ashley Slack! No drama to report, just wedded bliss and irony!”


“Stephen Colletti aka “Ste-phen” went on to date a number of Hollywood actresses, including Hayden Panettiere and Chelsea Kane. He’s had small recurring acting roles on the VH1 series Hit the Floor and the CW hit, One Tree Hill. Our fav surfer boy is still friends with LC and congratulated her on her recent engagement via Twitter. So dreamy!”


“Lauren “Lo” Bosworth created a lifestyle website and wrote a book called, The Lo Down! Her brand is on fire, and you can check out her amaze YouTube tutorials HERE!”


“Dieter Schmitz studied hotel management at the University of San Diego and is currently hotel manager at Lakehouse Hotel and Resort at Lake San Marcos. He’s totally in love with a blonde cutie via Instagram investigation and even wished Lauren Conrad a congrats on her engagement by posting an adorable beach video!”


“Far from her Laguna days of serial dating and crying over guys, Jessica Smith, now known as Jessica Smith Evans is happily married with two children! Being a mommy looks totes good on her!”


“Trey Phillips moved to the Big Apple to study design at Parsons and still lives there—working as an associate designer for Vera Wang. Trey is close to his costars Stephen Colletti, Lauren Conrad, and Dieter Schmitz, and probably still uses his longboard skateboard to get around the streets of New York!”

Lauren Chooses Her Favorite Wedding Gowns




Could it be that the wedding bells are starting to ring for Lauren Conrad and William Tell? 

Lauren announced yesterday, Sunday, September 15, via her blog that she was the Guest Editor for the fall issue of Martha Stewart Weddings.  Lauren shares, ” As you may already know, I have always been an admirer of Martha Stewart and the brand she has created. I have also always fantasized about owning a bridal salon, so guest editing this issue was like a dream come true.”

Back in June, Lauren spoke to Us Weekly magazine about her relationship with William, sharing that her family adore him and are “all about it”, as to the couple becoming engaged!

“My family loves him, so they love when we come to visit.  We aren’t in a rush, though,” she clarified. “We’re happy where we are right now.”

Lauren spoke about spending time at her parents Laguna Beach house, explaining, “We spend a lot of weekends there hanging out by the pool and doing nothing.”

Hills2City wonder if working on a bridal magazine and getting the opportunity to choose her favorite wedding gowns may have motivated Lauren to start dreaming of a wedding of her own?  It’s easy to picture the designer in any of the gowns she’s chosen!

When speaking to Us Weekly, Lauren also talked about the origins of Laguna Beach, and how different the reality tv world has become.

“I was out to dinner last night with Trey Phillips, who I did [Laguna Beach] with, and we were talking about how it was such a unique time. It was before reality TV had become what it was today. There was an innocence to it because none of us were doing it to get any deals or other ventures — we were just all friends and it sounded cool so we did it,” she explained. “We didn’t know what we were really doing, so I think it was this very interesting time where people didn’t have ulterior motives. We were just filming a documentary.  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 shared that she’s still friends with most of her former co-stars, and that a project that’s been on the backburner is the idea of producing her own reality show.  “I’ve been talking to people over the last couple years about that.  Right now I don’t have the time I would want to dedicate to making it the best it could be, so the perfect opportunity hasn’t come around yet. But I’m hopeful that it will!”

Where Laguna Beach Meets The Hills

Laguna Lovers

Remember Trey Phillips, Lauren Conrad’s co-star from Laguna Beach? We do too! Uh, no, we definitely loved him more than you did! He was the one organizing charity events for just about every cause imaginable.  Two reality televison worlds collided into one beautiful picture when Trey, Lauren and Stephanie Pratt were photographed together in a snowy New York City this year.
