INO discovered a star secret to looking svelte on the red carpet. Yummie Tummie to the rescue! With awards season around the corner, you can bet that more than one star will be sporting Yummie Tummie. Jennifer Lopez, Carrie Underwood, Lauren Conrad, and Tyra Banks love wearing Yummie Tummies to slim them down for events and red-carpet affairs. Beyonce has been seen wearing hers to the gym!

Sold by Hourglass Angel, the Yummie Tummie is a favorite of Oprah Winfrey. She pin-pointed the biggest benefit of Yummie Tummie when she said,

“No more muffin top!”

Oprah was so enamored with the tanks that she featured Yummie Tummie as one of her favorite things.

Kim and Khloe Kardashian love the Yummie Tummie strappy tank. INO is obsessed with the Stephanie 2-Way Tank by Yummie Tummie. Not only is it a big seller, but it’s a bargain at $29. The temperature controlled fabric helps regulate the flow of air on your skin so you’re never too warm or too cool. The two-way tank is reversible — one side is a scoop neck, the opposite is a V-neck! The tank is available in four colors, including radiant orchid, Pantone’s color of 2014!

Stay Young With HydroPeptide

Get the Fab Obsessed Beauty Buzz:

Lauren Conrad isn’t taking any chances with her skin. The 27 year old trusts her skin to HydroPeptide, a skin care company founded by Louise Peck, PhD. Haven’t heard of it? Prevention magazine has and they are a big fan. In fact, the magazine awarded HydroPeptide their Defy-Your-Age-Beauty-Award for “Best Day Cream with SPF.” Lauren Conrad is a fan of their HydroPeptide Peel: Anti-Wrinkle Polish and Plump Peel ($68.)

The product blends the renewing benefits of microdermabrasion and a lactic peel along with the rejuvenating effects of peptides and antioxidants. Before you dig out your high school science text book, peptides are chains of amino acids. They are the building blocks of collagen. Collagen is naturally present in the skin, and loss of collagen causes aging. Antioxidants fight the free radicals that cause aging. Together, they work together to keep the skin supple.

When the two-part Anti-Wrinkle Polish and Plump Peel arrived on our door step and we had to try it immediately. The promise was to visibly refill wrinkles and help to replump skin for renewed smoothness while also gently bringing healthynew cells to our skin’s surface for a refined, more radiant look. That’s a tall order.

After using the product once, we did notice more radiant skin. There was none of the redness or patchiness associated with typical peels. In fact, family members thought we had a full face of make up on! To finish the home facial, we used Trista Sutter’s favorite HydroPeptide product, the Power Lift: Anti-Wrinkle Ultra Rich Concentrate ($80.) Rich and creamy, the concentrate is able to quench even the driest complexions without clogging pores or leaving an oily shine.

LAUREN CONRAD
Cosmo Cover Girl for January

lc

Lauren Conrad appears on the January 2014 cover of Cosmopolitan (on newsstands December 3rd). Conrad is newly engaged and the proud owner of a brand new home in L.A.  She has two booming fashion lines, best-selling books, and a destination website under her belt. In her interview with Cosmo, Conrad dishes on all of this and more. Below are some highlights from the interview. Make sure to pick up the ‘zine on newsstands and check out the online version here.

On her engagement to fiancé, musician and law student William Tell: “I had no idea it was coming. I thought he would wait until he finished law school.”

On her engagement ring: “He didn’t even ask my friends, which was a bold move. He said, ‘I know you, and I know what you like.’ And I love it. It’s perfect.”

Cosmo: What’s the biggest mistake you’ve made with friends?
LC: “Being on television all those years, I got to view my own behavior. One thing I realized is that I was too hard on my friends when it came to guys. Instinctually, I wanted to protect them. But then you come off as judge-y and people are reluctant to come to you with a problem. I had to cut “I told you so” from my vocabulary.”

Cosmo: What is the best way to fall in love with your body?
LC: “I’m so jealous of people who completely love their bodies. I think most women have trouble areas as well as areas that they like. So you play up your favorite parts and learn to dress around the others. I used to hate my legs, but now I always wear minis. It was an accident. In an effort to look taller, I started wearing really high heels with shorter skirts and ended up showing off my legs a lot.”

LAUREN CONRAD
Celebrates Little Bro’s Birthday at TAO Vegas

lcPicMonkey Collage[gallink]

Television personality, designer and author Lauren Conrad took her brother, Brandon Conrad, to Las Vegas to celebrate his 21st birthday on Friday night, and where else but TAO. Accompanied by fiancé William Tell and her brother’s friends, Lauren and the group kicked off their evening on a variety of signature selections at TAO Asian Bistro. After dinner, Brandon and friends went to go change into costumes, continuing in the Halloween spirit, and returned as a giant banana while Lauren sported a pair of rabbit ears.

They then made their way to a dance floor table in the nightclub where the group was seen toasting to the birthday boy while taking in the high energy party scene. Brandon was later surprised with a Vegas-themed birthday cake presented by a bevy of sexy cocktail servers while his name emblazoned the giant LED screen above the DJ booth. The group danced and took photos of each other, partying late into the night.

Lauren Conrad had a great weekend. Boyfriend William Tell popped the question! Lauren shared the happy news on her website, LaurenConrad.com. She wrote:

I am very excited to share with you guys that William and I got engaged over the weekend. I am beyond thrilled! Get ready for lots more wedding content here on LaurenConrad.com as we begin the planning process.

Exciting! Lauren also shared the picture of her gorgeous new bling. Can’t WAIT to hear more wedding news and, eventually, get to see Lauren in her wedding gown. She’s going to be a beautiful- and chic- bride. Maybe Lauren might return to her reality TV roots and do some kind of special, eight episode series or something, following her preparations for her big day.

LAUREN CONRAD
Out & About in West Hollywood

FFN_Conrad_Lauren_PREMIERE_092513_51217908-BorderMaker[gallink]

It Girl and former The Hills star Lauren Conrad was spotted yesterday afternoon strolling about in West Hollywood. It seems the author, fashion designer and style icon was in the market for skincare as she made a stop at Kate Somerville while she was out.

LC is known for setting trends from fashion to nails and beyond, so there’s no doubt her many fans should probably consider checking out Somerville’s product line. In the meantime, let’s take a moment to obsess over this cute outfit.

Lauren looked adorable in a trend-right, early-fall ensemble of skinny jeans, a beige sweater and neutral flip flops. Her bouncy ponytail and dark shades and bag polished off the look for a perfect California afternoon ensemble. Love it!
