Style Crush: Lauren Conrad + Beauty Department

I admit it, I used to be a reality TV junkie in high school.  I don't know why but I somehow got sucked into all the drama and competition of those shows.  Two that I followed at the time were Laguna Beach and the Hills due to my love of Lauren Conrad.  The girl has great style!  While some might say her style is boring, it is simple, classic, and chic!  Which makes it easy to recreate her looks.

Since the shows have ended Lauren has expanded her resume to include author, designer and beauty blogger.  While I'm not into the books (tried reading L.A. Candy...) I love Lauren's clothing lines, LC Lauren Conrad at Kohl's  (love this dress) and Paper Crown (various stores).

But what I love the most is her collaboration with hairstylist Kristin Ess, and makeup artist Amy Nadine, The Beauty Department.  This site has tons of tips and tutorials for hair, makeup, skin care and more!  I really love all their tutorials (like the ones for the above hairstyles).  As someone who lacks creativity with their hair this site is my go to when trying to style it!  If you haven't done so already go check it out and I'm sure you'll be just as hooked as me!

Who's your style crush at the moment?
