Here & There: My NYC Trip


I spent the first half of the week in New York City working on my LC Lauren Conrad collection for Kohl’s. I can’t wait for you to see what’s coming up for spring…


Usually when I fly out to NYC for Kohl’s, it’s all business and no play. Thankfully this time around I was able to sneak in a bit more fun than usual. The highlight of the trip was ice skating in Bryant Park and meeting up with a few friends from high school. (And I’m proud to say I only fell once…haha.) Nothing beats being in NYC over the holidays. And ice skating in the park is just one of the many reasons it’s so great.

Are you going anywhere over the holidays?

XO Lauren

    I haven’t been ice skating since I was little! Well done for only falling once! If it were me, I’d probably be covered in bruises! I can’t wait to see your new Kohls collection!

  • Tabra Mitchell

    Lauren! Absolute love your site and of course your Kohl’s collection! Can’t wait to see the spring collection soon! One quick question…getting my hair done coming up in a couple of weeks. I want something different and new that I have never had before and since I adore you so much and love your hair, want to get my hair cut similar to yours. If you don’t mind me asking, what do you tell the hairstylist to do to it?! :) It would be greatly appreciated!

    Ohhh that picture reminds me of last year, they brought an ice rink to where I live, and it was for most of the people the first time they skated on ice, a friend of me got obssesed whit skating and… we was good, but one day he was triying to make a suddenly turn and… there was a kid on his way , so my friend avoid him and tripped he landed on his face and he was bleading all over the place, they took him to er and I went whit him in my car… It was an awefull night, when his mother saw him… she was criying… This year they didnt bring the rink but he still joke about it, we call him “”scarface””…

    Ice skating is so much fun! Last year I went down into downtown Detroit to skate at one of their parks, it was such a great time, full of holiday cheer! I plan to do the same again this year! It’s great being in a big city during the holidays :)

  • christina

    Funny, I was just in NYC on Sunday! Haha! Just last year my family went skiing with some of our really good friends after Christmas. I, never being good at things like skiing or sports in general, originally was not very excited about it. However the house we stayed in was GORGEOUS, the view on the mountain was even more beautiful, and I actually turned out to be pretty good at skiing! We were planning on doing it again this year, and I really hope we do!

  • Kimmy S

    you look so cute! i’m going to mammoth for the holidays, but i acutally usually go to nyc (which i will miss, but at least i get to snowbaord!!)

    You should check out Portland, Oregon. I don’t remember what the mall was called but the shopping center is HUGE and there’s an indoor skating rink! And Macaroni Grill is literally attached. Yes please!
