Letter from Lauren: Work It

Letter from Lauren: Work It
April is finally upon us, and you know what that means: It’s time to work it, ladies. The content you’ll be seeing on LaurenConrad.com this month is centered around the working girl, which is a theme that is very important to me. Personally, I tend to think in an entrepreneurial mindset most of the time, as I own several of my own businesses. From
The Little Market to Paper Crown to LaurenConrad.com, it’s no surprise that I actually get a thrill out of starting new business ventures from the ground up. But whether I’m heading up my own projects or working with other companies that share my vision (like Kohl’s and XO(eco) Blue Avocado), I consider professionalism, leadership, and office etiquette three of the most important qualities every woman should possess.

This month, my team and I will teach you a few of the tricks we’ve learned throughout our own business ventures. Here on the site, we’ll discuss everything from email etiquette to what you should keep off of your social media if you’re trying to get a job. Be sure to expect plenty of fashion and beauty tips to try in the office as well. On another note, you can also expect posts about festival fashion, spring diet and fitness tips, and (get excited) my top 10 secrets for how to take the perfect Instagram photo. April, you’re looking good.

Do you have any blog requests you would like to see me write about this month?

Leave your ideas in the comments below!

XO Lauren

    Hi LC Team, This is a great monthly focus. I’d like to see tips and tricks for workers and women in big cities … you know, those who have to carry four bags around during the day with gym clothes, office clothes, their healthy lunch and snacks, etc. What are some tips for urban gals? Thanks! Ashley @ aladygoeswest.com

  • Lauren

    This couldn’t be a better month for me to have you posting about “the working girl” because I just got a job promotion & am in need of some new tips! A good blog post idea might be how to balance your work and life. I work crazy hours now & it’s sometimes hard to find time to do things for myself and to spend time with the people closest to me. Thanks so much! <3

    I would like to see something about work/healthy living/social life balance. I work a 8-5 job at an office where I sit all day. By the time I leave work, I don’t want to do anything because I’m so tired. I try to incorporate as much “healthy living” as I can. I tend to have a hard time finding the perfect balance between working, working out and my social life. Any tips?

    • Courtney

      I would love to see tips on this as well!

    • Shelly

      I agree! I love tips about how to stay motivated after working all day! I hate feeling like there are not enough hours in the day for my energy level after work! Great idea!

    • Elisa

      Totally agree! I would love to see tips on this as well.

    • Sarah

      I agree! I’m a college student – my days are packed with classes, work, and studying. How can I prioritize my time most efficiently so I can keep up with all of my obligations and still have time for fun and more workouts all while not getting worn out?

  • Vera

    I can’t WAIT for this month to start, seeing as I’m an entrepreneur as well. I’m really looking forward to your tips, Lauren!

  • http://danakay16.blogspot.com/ Dana Kay

    I would definitely like to see a post on how to successfully start up a small business. What are some of your own advice/experience? Thanks!

    • EmilyV

      Another topic: I would like to know how to style your hair for the hot weather ahead.

  • Jessica Ofray

    I’m currently a graduate student and am interning at a university counseling center. One thing that I have seen working with my clients is that more often than not people lose site of self care or they unintentionally do not make time for it. It would be great to incorporate not just the importance of physical health into your articles but also the importance of mental and spiritual health to prevent burnout! It will also help reduce the stigma that surrounds mental health and allow for an open and honest discussion that everyone experiences stress, sadness, and anxiety, and that it is completely ok to ask for help!

  • Auden

    I would love to read an article about your opinion on cheeky bikini bottoms! How much is too much?

  • http://Thestyleweaver.blogspot.com The Style Weaver

  • Starflykiwi

    I would love to see work style suggestions that are suitable for a relaxed corporate environment. I love wearing suits, but like to try and keep it young and fresh by not wearing tailored shirts etc. More ideas on something in between super formal and a very relaxed office environment would be great please.

  • Jessica

    Looking forward on seeing all the things you want to share this month. You are such an inspiration!

  • Vanessa

    I would love to get tips and “how to’s” on starting up a business. The do’s and do nots, how to stay focused on a vision, and more importantly how stay motivated during the process! I am an upcoming entrepreneur, and I think coming up with a daily routine or checklist would be great. Your experience and guidance would be inspirational.

  • Princess jasmin

    I love love love your clothing it’s exactly my style! Only thing doesn’t come in my size! How about plus size???

    I love to see something on growing into leadership roles and how to advance your career in a realistic way and time frame.

  • Tiffany Spriggs

    Hi Lauren, I am turning 21 on April 14th and I still have no idea what I want to do for my career. I’ve had many ideas, and I continue to change my mind. I know I want to take business classes and be very involved in my community (Las Vegas). I have a scholarship that expires in a few years and i would like to finally use it and get into school! What steps should I take to at least start my career path? Where do I begin?

    • Christien Pozorski

      I agree!I have no idea where to start with my career!

  • Chelsey

    I’d love to see a post about hair + makeup for the office! It’s something I’ve been thinking about lately, and a how-to would be amazing!

  • http://franzicanterbury.blogspot.co.uk/ Franziska Külbel

    What I always find hard is eating right when I’m at work. I usually leave the house around 7.15 and don’t come home until 8… any tips for clean meals would be awesome! Also, I don’t have a regular lunch break because I’m working in journalism, so any on-the-go lunches would be cool. Thank you! xx

  • Emily

    Can’t wait for all the posts this month!! Do you have any suggestions on how to handle (or better yet, avoid) office drama? How about how to handle “difficult” or “aggressive” coworkers? I’m part of a group of lovely group of ladies who have started a women’s networking group in my office but need help knowing how to properly work along side all the different personalities.

    I’d, also, love to see quick lunch break workouts and how to look cute afterwards. I enjoy getting a workout in over lunch but feel like I never have time put make up on or do my hair before going back into work.

    Ooo, I’m sooo excited for the upcoming blogs!

  • Kyra

    Thanks for the post Lauren. Would love to see posts on how to stay motivated, perhaps foods to avoid so you don’t get down into a slum? Anything on motivation is great this month! Love the picture by the way!

    I have to say, this month’s theme excites me! I think a lot of young women these days are future business owners and/or entrepreneurs , and if they aren’t already, they’re working towards that. I like to see a post perhaps about scheduling your days/weeks/months, and maybe ‘a typical day in the life of…’ yourself or another female entrepreneur.
