Lauren Conrad's Favorite Things

Our March cover girl Lauren Conrad has come a long way since her drama-filled days as a teenager on Laguna Beach and The Hills. As an expert blogger on, a bestselling author (her latest novel, Infamous, the conclusion to her Fame Game series, will be released in June) and a chic role model, the former reality television star wears many hats. A graduate of FIDM, Conrad has thoroughly immersed herself in the fashion world, designing an affordable line for Kohl’s and a contemporary label, Paper Crown. Most recently, Conrad has teamed up with eco-friendly brand BlueAvocado. Her xo(eco) collection of reusable totes and makeup bags are made from recycled bottles, providing a snazzy way to reduce the carbon footprint left by plastic products. Read on to learn about Conrad's closet staples and the products she can't live without.

Blue Avocado xo(eco) Cool Curl Iron Cover

"I love the hot iron cover," says Conrad. "For someone who is always getting ready in hotel rooms and running out the door, this bag is amazing. I can curl my hair and put the hot iron right into the case and run to the airport. No more wrapping the iron in a million towels or waiting 20 minutes for it to cool. The hot iron cover can withstand 500 degrees of heat."
