I am so excited to announce my new beauty line, Lauren Conrad Beauty. This collection has been years in the making, and I could not be happier to finally share what I’ve been working on. Lauren Conrad Beauty was born from my desire for eco-friendly beauty products with clean ingredients that make you look great and feel confident. My new products are seamless, everyday essentials meant to celebrate the natural beauty of you. Lauren Conrad Beauty is a vegan, cruelty-free, certified-Clean, Peta-approved, and ethically sourced brand that’s formulated without parabens, synthetic fragrances, and many other harmful ingredients.

When it comes to social distancing at home with her husband William Tell and their two sons Charlie Wolf, 7 months, and Liam James, 2½, Lauren Conrad admits, “We’re in survival mode.”
Continues the lifestyle maven in an exclusive conversation with PEOPLE, “Our kids need a lot of attention. We’re living in a world of LEGOs and train sets! It’s been a real balancing act.”
And the 34-year-old designer certainly has her plate full, with the launch of her new kids’ clothing line Little Co. by Lauren Conrad, available in sizes newborn through 5T exclusively at Kohl’s beginning Thursday.
“I look at kids’ clothes a lot differently now that I’ve shopped for them,” says Conrad, who also shot a video for the brand with some little fans, pre-COVID-19.
“I wanted [the line] to be really easy — mix-and-match pieces and complementary colors. And I’m a big fan of gender neutral colors,” she says, adding, “Kids grow out of their clothes so quickly!”
As far as personal time during the lockdown, Conrad says it’s been a bit elusive. “Any time throughout the day that I would have taken for myself has been replaced with cooking and cleaning,” says The Little Market co-founder.
“The only time I have to myself is when the kids go down to sleep,” she tells PEOPLE. “Every night, I’ve been taking a bath with Little Market bath salts and having a glass of wine. It’s my favorite thing! When you have young children, you don’t get a lot of alone time.”

I know life’s more uncertain and chaotic these days than we’ve ever experienced. And during it all, our kids continue growing and changing as fast as the world around us. I’ve been working on something very close to my heart for a couple years, and while it feels odd announcing or celebrating anything right now, I’m really proud of what we’ve created. I’m happy to share @lcLittleCo with you, my new clothing line for the kids growing and changing in your house (it’ll be available online at @Kohls starting May 21st). Wishing you all health, safety and sanity x
Lauren Conrad is pregnant with her second child! She shared the wonderful news on Instagram earlier.
It’s been hard to keep this one to myself! Very excited to share that our family will be getting a little bigger this year 👶🏼 – Lauren Conrad
Lauren Conrad and Hannah Skvarla of The Little Market are Changing The World – The co-founders are helping their customers help the less fortunate. As co-founders of The Little Market, Lauren Conrad and Hannah Skvarla set out with a big undertaking. “Our mission is to create dignified job opportunities for women in need all over the world,” Skvarla says, turning over a beautiful hand-blown tumbler covered in hand-etched leaves. The glass is one of Skvarla and Conrad’s personal favorites, made in Mexico by artisans with physical disabilities who have struggled to get jobs elsewhere due to discrimination. “One of our goals is to make responsible purchasing easier, and not to compromise,” Conrad adds.
The two first met in 2006 while studying at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, and eventually began to travel the world together exploring local markets. After a trip to Tanzania and Uganda left them particularly inspired, the duo opened The Little Market as an e-commerce shop in 2013. Under Conrad, a lifestyle guru who runs LaurenConrad.com, and Skvarla, who has a background in fashion and social justice, the website quickly became a destination for sustainable shopping.
This September, The Little Market opened its first storefront in Pacific Palisades, California.”We’ve always wanted to have a brick and mortar because with handmade goods, you get to really experience them when you see them in person,” says Skvarla.
MTV is reportedly thinking about a “Hills” reboot.
The show was a spin-off of “Laguna Beach.”
If it were to be brought back, star Lauren Conrad would reportedly not return.
“The Hills” might be coming back to MTV, but there’s one sad catch. Sources told Us Weekly that MTV is considering a “Hills” reboot without the show’s star, Lauren Conrad. “The rest of the crew is all still friends besides her,” one source said. “Everyone else is down to do it.”
The hit reality show, which aired from 2006 to 2010, was a spin-off of “Laguna Beach” and followed Conrad as she pursued a fashion career. It chronicled her life and relationship with friends Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port, Lo Bosworth, and Heidi Montag as the crew partied, worked, and dated in Los Angeles. Conrad and Montag famously had a falling out due to Montag’s now-husband Spencer Pratt. It was filled with dramatic fights and memorable quotes, like Conrad’s iconic “homeboy wore combat boots to the beach” line when Justin Bobby ditched Patridge.
But Conrad eventually left in the middle of season five to pursue her career. Her former “Laguna Beach” co-star Kristin Cavallari replaced her for season six. Without Conrad, the show was quickly canceled. Patridge and Port both told Us that they’d be willing to reunite. “I’m not opposed to it,” Patridge said. “It would really depend on what it was going to be. So, we’ll see.” Port admitted that it would be “hard” but “it’d definitely be something fun.”
Conrad has since gone on to become a successful fashion designer and lifestyle blogger.
