10 Reason’s Lauren Conrad’s Homes Are Goals

Lauren Conrad has had us hooked since she first appeared as the tanned all-California highschooler on ‘Laguna Beach: The Real OC’. Over the years we’ve watched her wail her way through relationship turmoils,  fall outs with her BBFs (“I want to forgive you and forget you” anyone?) and don an enviable closet.

Now, at 31, the blonde bombshell is a multi-millionaire and business mogul. To add to this, she has a pretty impressive real estate portfolio for someone her age. And while the magic of Google (“searchgardium-lauren-os-aaaaa”) can’t give us an exact number of properties, we can concur that the babe owns or has recently owned a Beverly Hills Penthouse, a house in Pacific Palisades, a house in Brentwood Hills and one in Laguna Beach.

Now join us as we put on a bit of Natasha Bedingfield and drool our way through 10 reasons that Lauren Conrad’s homes are absolute goals…

The rest is still unwritten.

1.Her $6M mansion has an actual waterslide.

Jaw, meet floor.

Just when you thought that a hot tub and a large pool were enough, she goes and gets a darn tree house slide!

This gorgeous spot of paradise is part of Lauren’s Pacific Palisades abode, which is worth a reported six million bucks.

We can imagine her having heaps of fun in the sun with her hubby and baby here.

2.The living room is the epitome of ‘Cali chic’

lauren-conrad-living-room

Just when we thought that Lauren Conrad couldn’t be more dictionary definition ‘Cali chic’, we see this gorgeous living room.

With large wooden windows, leather couches and pops of boho goodness, her living room is more ‘fetch’ than Gretchen Weiners entire wardrobe.

As a matter of fact, if we had no morals we would just totally rob this room bling ring style.

But we’d rather keep our morals and just deck out our abode with these goodies:

Solid geometric pillow covers and paisley embroidered pillow covers

3.Her entranceway is prettier than our whole house put together

No lie: If we added all the prettiness of our abodes together and compared it to Lauren’s entraceway, it would fall short.

 

This stunning tiled archway welcomes guests to her Pacific Palisades home in the most stunning way possible.

4.She has a luxury bar. In her home.

Mind blown.

Her Beverly Hills penthouse has its very own high-end bar equipped with black marble kitchen tops, gold taps and beautiful glasswear.

Jealous? Us? Never!

5.Her bathroom is like walking into a Pinterest board

It’s decked out with a stand-alone bath, subway tiles and a boho rug. So yep: it’s basically everything we’ve collected on Pinterest made into one drool-worthy room.

These days she’s her own boss and gets to work from this seriously dreamy office in her Los Angeles pent house.

Decked out with stylish, colorful furniture and a mixture of classic and trend pieces, this office offers the best of both worlds. We would totally eat, sleep and generally exist in here too.

5 Crazy Expensive Celebrity Weddings That Will Make You Gasp

These crazy expensive celebrity weddings will have you asking: “Erm… they spent how much?:

For the everyday couple, a wedding is one of the most expensive investments they will ever make. However, for these celebrities, their wedding was just another thing to throw their not-so-sacred dollars at.

From the lavish and luxurious, to the down-right ridiculous, here’s 10 crazy expensive celebrity weddings that will make you gasp…

1.Kate Middleton & Prince William

(Photo source: marthastewart.com)

Cost: $34 million

Venue: Westminster Abbey

Guests Included:  David & Victoria Beckham, The Queen, Sir Elton John

Who can forget that humble day in 2011 when brunette beauty Kate Middleton walked down the aisle to become a member of the royal family?

The whole world looked on as Kate Middleton and Prince William said their vows in front of 1,900 royals, political figures, friends, family and celebrities.

The whopping $34m covered Kate Middleton’s custom Alexander McQueen wedding dress ($434,000), $32 million on security and $800,000 on flowers. Erm… were the flowers made of solid gold?

Kate’s lavish banquet was certainly fit for a future queen, but you can recreate the look yourself on a budget.

Begin by layering the table with a white, floral detailed table cloth, such as our hand painted floral table cloth.

Rustic Orange

Next, add gold centerpieces, such as statues or ornaments. If cheaper gold ornaments look a little tacky, why not try spray painting roses gold?

Finally, add a mixture of flat and tall flower arrangements in an array of pink and white.

 

2. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel

Cost: $6.5 million

Location: An Italian resort in Borgo Egnazia

Guests included: Jimmy Fallon, Andy Samberg & Timbaland

Justin famously sang ‘let me show you all the good things about love’ and I guess his money is one of them! The ex N-Sync star tied the knot with actress Jessica Biel at a swanky five star resort in the Italian city of Fasano.

The do’ included Justin performing a song he had written specifically for Jessica, hors d’oeuvres such as lobster in turnip top and Jessica’s custom, light pink Giambattista Valli gown.

There is something so elegant and simple about Jessica and Justin’s wedding table. Soft pink seat cushions and flowers compliment the bride’s stunning pastel pink gown, whilst a mirrored centerpiece and white tablecloth make this lavish set-up really easy to recreate on a budget.

Inject a little baby pink into your wedding table with the velvet table runner.

3. Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

Cost: $12 million

Location: Forte di Belvedere, Florence

Guests included: Andre Leon Talley, Alexander Wang & Chrissy Teigan

When it comes to flashing the cash, it doesn’t get more over the top than Kimye.

The King and Queen of controversy had their nuptials in the stunning Forte di Belvedore. Creepily enough, they chose to get married in Florence as it was where their daughter, North, was conceived.

The couple arrived in a horse-drawn carriage and exchanged their vows in front of a stunning flower wall. Kim made a total of four dress changes, which we can imagine cost a couple of million alone.

Their Wedding Table On A Budget

This table setting is crystal, clean and oh-so-Kim.

To recreate, invest in good crystal glasswear, painted white table and chairs and create a hanging floral centerpiece.

4. George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin

Cost: $4.6 million

Location: Aman Canal Grande luxury resort in Venice

Guests included: Matt Damon, Bono & Anna Wintour

As far as expensive celebrity weddings go, George and Amal’s is on the lower end of the scale.

Like many other celebrities, the Hollywood couple tied the knot in Italy. The wedding began with a civil ceremony at Venice City hall, to which Amal wore a beautiful white pantsuit, accompanied by an oversized floppy hat.

They then danced the night away in Hotel Aman with their celebrity friends and family.

5.Delphine Arnault and Alessandro Vallarino Gancia

Cost: $7 million

Location:Roman Catholic Cathédrale Saint-Jean-Baptiste de Bazas (a French national monument) & the Château d’Yquem

Guests included: Ringo Star, Jools Holland & Karl Lagerfeld

So you are probably thinking ‘who?’. Delphine Arnault is heiress to the Louis Vuitton dynasty and Vallarino Gancia is heir to a dynasty of Italian winemakers. In other words, they have a whole lot of wealth in their future. Unfortunately, their future was cut short by their untimely divorce in 2010, just 5 years after their crazy expensive wedding.

The silver-spoon-born couple wed at a monument in the South of France and had a reception at a French Chateau. Amongst all the other lavish displays, were 5,000 white roses (yep, you read that correctly).

Their Wedding Table Decor On A Budget

Ok… we aren’t saying that you can redo those walls and architecture, but the tables are easy to recreate on a budget.

Begin by adorning round tables with our hand painted floral round tablecloth.

For the center pieces, opt for crystal chandeliers, or faux crystal, and surround by a moat of red and pink roses. Finish with white plates and crystal glassware.

Tying your scarf at the front is so 2016. Autumn/Winter 2017 is all about having a party on the back!

Rather than wrapping your scarf around your neck and securing at the front, tie at the back and allow to cascade behind you.

As the total babe in the photo above shows, this scarf trend works wonderfully with off-shoulder silhouettes.

A neutral or khaki-hued scarf is fantastic for any Autumnal palette.
