Take a Look Inside Lauren Conrad’s New LA Pad
Lauren Conrad is a woman of many talents. The 29-year-old California girl is a former reality TV star, author, business woman, fashion designer and apparently a budding real estate mogul. Her newest property? A modest $4.4 million dollar mansion in the Pacific Palisades.
For most, this one and a half acre property would be a dream come true on its own, but for LC, this is just one of her many LA properties. Conrad already owns homes in Laguna Beach, Brentwood and Beverly Hills. If you’re unfamiliar with LA geography, these are all within about an hour drive of each other at the most — Brentwood and the Pacific Palisades are actually only about four miles apart. But I guess when that LA traffic gets rough, it pays to have four different places you call home.
According to Variety, the newest addition to her portfolio is an 11-year-old mansion created in a mock Mediterranian style. Coming in at 5,900 square feet, the house consists of five bedrooms, five and a half baths, a giant walk-in closet and equally as spacious kitchen.
Head outside and you’ll find a pool (with a SLIDE) and ample yard space for lawn games and summer barbeques.
If you need us, we’ll just be here not-so-patiently waiting for our invite to the housewarming party. LC, if you’re listening we make a mean Jalapeno Popper Dip. Just sayin’.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
