Looks like celebrities have a case of spring fever! With the weather beginning to warm up, they headed outdoors to enjoy the sun’s rays, and snapped some great pictures along the way. Heidi Klum shared a photo of herself basking in the bright sunshine, while Lauren Conrad made us all jealous by posting a photo of her lavender pink lemonade and gorgeous scenic view. But they weren’t the only celebrities to snap and share their weekend moments on Instagram!
Lauren Conrad is known for her impeccable style, her entrepreneurial nature, and her all-around likeability. She’s an accomplished designer, a New York Times best-selling author, and a whiz in the kitchen — but in addition, she’s got a heart of gold (not that it comes as a surprise). Conrad, who runs her site The Little Market with her best friend Hannah, is helping to empower women by curating a selection of fair trade goods from artisan groups in developing countries around the world. We chatted with the star about her favorite finds, her ideal Valentine’s Day outfit, and how, oh how, she takes such gorgeous ‘grams.
What inspired you to create The Little Market?
I created it with one of my best friends, Hannah. We’ve been travel buddies for a really long time, and she’s worked with Human Rights Watch for years, so whenever I travel with her, it’s not just seeing new places. She’s very good about educating me on the different challenges they face there, so I was learning more and more. We originally came up with the concept from a trip to Africa, probably a year and a half ago. We knew we wanted to do a project that would focus on either women or children, and so it was on that trip that we came up with the idea. The concept is that we work with artisans all over the world, and we focus on women and we focus on areas where women face bigger challenges.
It comes as no surprise that Lauren Conrad‘s engagement photos came out as adorable as they did, but we couldn’t help talking about it regardless. The designer—who also wears multiple hats including entrepreneur, best-selling author, DIYer, and social media star—shared two of her engagement photos on her personal Instagram and given Conrad’s picture-perfect grams (whose exact filters she won’t divulge to anyone, trust us, we’ve tried to coax it out of her!), they’re exactly what we expected and then some.
“The very talented Elizabeth Messina came to our home to photograph us in our element,” Conrad shares on her blog. “I love how the photos turned out!” In the two shots, Conrad shares a sweet moment with her fiancé William Tell—former Something Corporate guitarist and law student—and in the second, a romantic image of Conrad in a tulle dress showing off her round-cut diamond on a simple platinum band. We can’t wait to see more portraits and all of Conrad’s behind-the-scene preparations, which she promises to share on laurenconrad.com. As for the bride-to-be, she’s “so excited” for the big day!
