Do you need some tips?

Does your social media need some help? Haha. Are you okay with us talking to you for 40 minutes as if we are so sure that you respect and look up to us?
Like, everyone should pick their colors and their “aesthetic,” it’s like, really something that is smart to think about. *insert condescending tone that likely stems from insecurities for which you probably should be in therapy*
I grew up in California, love LA, and went to school there. I’ve also been rooting for Lauren for quite a long time. Her child is adorable. She’s clearly a good mother. I grew up watching her and have consistently rooted for her and supported as a consumer as she has built her brand in the women’s lifestyle realm.
Need some tips?
Haha. We all know that there is no genuine concern about giving you tips. It’s all about themselves and building their “brand” and getting to speak in a manner as if they are so sure that they have something figured out that the rest of us haven’t thought about. The truth is that there isn’t much depth to many of the episodes. If you’re a listener like me in your 30s and self-sufficient like Lauren, you likely don’t seek tips, you just hope for relatable women and a calming voice to pass the time on your commute or when working out. Offering tips and offering solutions is a way that men often address problems. Women many times don’t seek “tips” or a solution, being told what to do. Lauren Conrad is sweet and an easy listen to take your mind off of other things on a weekday morning at the gym. But with certain guests, the podcast misses a golden opportunity to be genuinely relatable.
Hannah E. of The Little Market is a gem; a clearly educated and well spoken treat. Kristin E. Is a well known name with a passion for hair who is super funny and loves what she does, be could have delved in deeper sharing her knowledge. The Home Edit Ladies were fun, and said things that I remember and took away with me as being relatable. Lauren’s social media ladies are annoying. They also could work on their branding and presentation because, honestly, I don’t remember their names or their company! I think that Lauren could do well if she moved on from them and embraced the whole wide world beyond blush pink. The end!

Disappointed

I tried listening to an episode thinking i was going to learn something about makeup, interesting projects LC is working on, or get tips from industry “expert” guests. Instead I found myself fast forwarding through chit chat and inside jokes between LC and her friends. I hope she turns it around!

Fake and Boring

Where do I start? Love LC. But. You could most definitely find a wayyyy more interesting podcast. She sounds so fake from the intro though the ads till the end where she asks the most irrelevant questions from her social media. She clearly has a cookie cutter privileged life where she’s been able to hire all these “experts” where they honestly sound like 1. They’re just her friends and 2. They’ve actually done a lot more work building their own businesses than she did because obvious she has money to pay people to do it for her. I root for her every day but these podcasts are so...off. You don’t actually LEARN anything from her “tips” she says you’ll get because she keeps the conversations very surfacey with more background on how she is best friends with the person. LOVED the Kristen Ess show though because she actually seemed so smart and interesting and actually built her business from the ground up. I think all the other guests had potential but LC didn’t let them get there to show it. Also... I do not CARE where you are recording and NO we can’t hear the birds or street traffic or whatever you think we can in the background. So much more to say but suffice to say, I agree with all the other comments about the fakeness and boring feel. She just seems out of touch with the every day girl struggling to get by. My fav convo was when she asked her wedding planner friend how much wine or liquor to buy for a home party and her friend responded “your caterer will know.” Sorry yeah, I don’t use a caterer; this is a self planned in administered party. Sooo yeah out of touch podcast host and guests at times. And her poor friend who had to talk about her dating life who is obviously the same age as Lauren Conrad and as LC giggled and said oh ha ha ha ha I’ve never had to date like this I’m married ha ha ha ha. To end on a positive note: LC: I know you must have some genuineness in there, let us see it! Have better smarter dialogue with your guests and let them speak more about specifics that you say we will get out of your podcast.
Also please up the quality and design of your LC Kohl’s clothes line..it’s gone downhill.
