Lauren Answers Fan Questions! (Lucky Magazine Tumblr)

http://luckymag.tumblr.com


Lauren Conrad was Lucky Magazine's guest editor on Tumblr this week. She posted pictures and a video, and she also answered many questions from us fans! Below are all the questions she answered this week:


LCdaily asked: Were you nervous to first put paper crown out there into the world
knowing it was a self funded project?

Yes, very! When you venture out on your own with a project like this there is no one else to point a finger at if it doesn’t perform. That being said, I have really enjoyed the freedom it has allowed me in making both business and creative decisions. When it comes down to it, this is really a passion project. I’m able to do something I love with people I love and I feel so fortunate. If people respond to the line that’s just icing on the cake.


Anonymous asked: What is your favorite casual look for a sunny summer day?
Warm sunny days are my favorite to dress for. I usually opt for something flowy, whether it be a summer dress or a light weight blouse. I am also a fan of cut off denim shorts. Not too short or too tight, just cute and comfortable.

Anonymous asked: What is it like to be considered a role model to some many young girls out there?
Both nerve wracking and flattering. It is such a compliment to be told that you are looked up to, but with that comes responsibility. I have always lived my life the way I wanted and tried not to let others affect my decisions. That said, I do try to be aware of how my choices effect other people. I think it’s all about finding a balance.

Anonymous asked: You have a great figure. Are you a keen healthy eater and exercise girl?
Well thank you! Like any girl I have to work to stay healthy. As I become more and more busy a lot more of my health depends on my diet.I used to be able to eat whatever I wanted (within reason) because I was working out almost everyday. These days that just isn’t a reality for me. Some days I just can’t make it to the gym or find the time to go for a hike. Because of this I have really taken an interest in the food I put into my body. I read books and research the things that I should and should not be eating (there is some scary stuff out there!)So I try my best to eat clean avoiding processed foods or foods with ingredients that I can’t pronounce. I have also grown to love cooking which helps. I buy organic and know exactly what is going into my meals.

Anonymous asked: what's the funniest moment you had with a best friend that makes you laugh just thinking about it?
I had a few candles lit in my room one day when something on my table caught on fire. All of a sudden there were flames in the middle of my room. I yelled for my roommate and we didn’t know what to do so we just started running around screaming. Then I ran to get a towel and wet it to put out the flames. At the same time Maura, my roommate ran to get a pitcher of water. I quickly smothered the fire and just after I had put it out, Maura came running in an threw water all over my room. Luckily nothing was damaged and we laughed for so long afterwards.


gingermax asked: What are your favorite nail polishes for summer?
Last summer was all about brights, but this summer I am gravitating towards muted colors. I am loving colors like soft pinks, mint greens and pale blues. So pretty!


Anonymous asked: How do you decide when to take a fashion risk and when to play it safe?
To be honest I take most of my fashion risks when I know people won’t take note. A night out bar hopping with your girls (dive bars, not clubs) is a perfect night to test drive a new look. On the carpet I tend to play it safe most of the time. The press can be brutal but your friends are much kinder.

Anonymous asked: You said that you like to read/research food & good recipes, what are some good resources to look at?
I get most of my recipes online. One of my favorite sites is www.allrecipes.com. I love any site that has comments and reviews. Others who have already attempted the dish can give you tips or suggestions on what to change. 

Anonymous asked: What's the best piece of advice youve ever been given?
My father told me that if you do something you love then you’ll never work a day in your life.

Anonymous asked: What is your advice for young aspiring business women?
My advice is to get as much experience in the industry as possible. Whatever field you are interested in, take every opportunity you can to learn. School is great to teach you fundamentals, but there are limitations to what you can learn from a text book. Internships don’t usually come with a paycheck, but the experience is priceless.

Anonymous asked: What is the sweetest thing a fan has done when they met you? xo
I have so many wonderful stories of amazing things people have done for me. One that stands out is a young lady who has come to multiple signings and makes me these beautiful boxes that hold photos.

josiecovello asked: What is your favorite hair style?
My favorite way to wear my hair is down in loose curls. It’s low maintenance and appropriate for most occasions. See www.thebeautydepartment.com for a tutorial on how I do my everyday curl.

andtheawardgoesto asked: What are three things a girl should have in her wardrobe?
1- A basic black pump
2- A well fitting Little Black Dress
3- A perfect pair of jeans

amusemi asked: Hi Lauren! What are your top 5 staples for the summer?
1- Missoni Bikinis
2- White Camisole Top
3- Cutoff Jean Shorts
4- Striped Sweater
5- Paper Crown Floral Dress

plovesyouu asked: What is your favorite part about your job?
My favorite thing about my jobs is I get to see my thoughts and ideas develop into something tangible. Whether it is a silk dress or a hard cover book. I have the opportunity to dream something up one day and see someone walking down the street wearing it another. It really is a gratifying feeling.

somuchmusicwoundedme asked: When it comes to skincare during the summer, what do you do to keep your skin healthy?
Nothing too crazy. I wear sunscreen under my make up year round, but I am definitely a bit more cautious during long summer days. I also make a point to moisturize more.

Anonymous asked: What is your best personal style advice?
Don’t let trends dictate what you buy. Cater them to your personal style. It’s important to be an individual and look good while doing it. Put your own twist on trends and don’t be afraid to skip the ones that simply aren’t for you.

cllaireee asked: What's your favorite trend of this season?
My favorite trend right now is this romantic 70’s vibe. Belled denim over chunky heels makes legs look a mile long and I love all the soft pretty blouses. The vintage florals and pretty color palettes are taking over my summer wardrobe.

Anonymous asked: I love your style! Who are your favorite shoe designers?
Thanks! I would say most of my shoes are Christian Louboutin, Miu Miu, or YSL. I prefer a higher heel with a hidden platform for comfort and all three have mastered it. When I am looking for a deal on cute shoes I look to Topshop or Aldo.


Anonymous asked: What's the best vacation you've ever been on?
My favorite vacation I have ever been on was to Bali in Indonesia. I went for two weeks and stayed in lots of different places there. It was such a different type of trip for me. I saw things I had never seen before and did things I had never done. I really felt like I was being exposed to something new. It was so beautiful and peaceful. I can’t wait to go back.


Anonymous asked: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Happy :-) I stopped trying to predict what would happen next a while ago, but my hope is that I will be loved and doing something that makes me happy.
