Lauren Conrad: Santa Monica Shopper

Lauren Conrad: Santa Monica Shopper

Lauren Conrad juggles a few full bags in her hands while shopping on Thursday afternoon (August 30) in Santa Monica, Calif.

The 26-year-old designer carried a large Zara bag while making her way back to her car.

Lauren recently dished out a few dating tips on her website for her “Ask Lauren” column.

“First things first, NO—it is not cheesy to join a dating site,” she advised. “I have several friends who have tried them and while they aren’t for everyone, sometimes they are a great way to meet someone. I don’t think it’s unusual to be nervous about feeling a bit behind relationship-wise when you are in your mid-twenties. One thing to keep in mind while you are attending weddings, showers and other events celebrating your friends’ relationships is that these aren’t things you are missing out on.”

She continued, “They are things you have to look forward to. I was in a similar place last year. Twenty-five, newly single and helping one of my best friends plan her wedding, so I know how it can feel. It can be hard to feel like you have to start from scratch when you have invested so much time with a person, but shortly after my break up I realized something: I wasn’t losing the chance to have love—I was getting the opportunity to do it all over again.”
