Lauren Conrad’s Advice To Her 18-year-old Self

As we get older it’s easy to look back and wish we had known then what we know now. Lauren Conrad is about to celebrate the 10-year-anniversary of Laguna Beach and took time to write advice to her 18-year-old self.

The author, fashion designer, cover girl and soon-to-be bride offered her thoughts on enjoying your youth, (“When I was 18, I was in a hurry to grow up. Instead, I wish I would have taken a beat to just enjoy being young,” shae shared.), wearing sunscreen, and above all, staying true to who you are.

“For the first time you get to go off on your own and make real, conscious decisions about where you want life to take you,” she wrote. “You get to choose your school, your major, and what kind of person you’ll become. So when you’re making these decisions, be an individual. It’s the best way to discover who you really are.”
