We loved her on Laguna Beach. We loved her on The Hills. Whats not to love about Lo? She doesn't even need an introduction or a last name but for those who aren't familiar with Lo Bosworth - you have missed out over the years; the girl who is always sweet & chic.
Not only has she been the star of Mtv's top rated reality show but she is a business owner, television host, author and let's not forget amazing writer & creator of The Lo Down -- the perfect go-to site that focuses on five main categories - Relationships, Health and Fitness, Style, Beauty, and Life. Published daily, Lo and her team give us great style and beauty tips and Lo even shares vacay pics with her readers. If you haven't checked out The Lo Down you have to make it a point to stop by everyday.
And even though we get our daily dose of Lo, since the hills has wrapped we have missed all of her "docusoap" moments, as she refers to them and we couldn't wait to find out whats next for Lo.
How has life been since The Hills wrapped? Do you miss the filming crew yet?
Lo: Life has been busier than ever! I used to film about 3-4 days a week, but now with my new website requiring constant love and attention, I'm working 7 days a week. I do miss the film crew, but I have a sneaking suspicion I'll be working with a few members again on my next TV project.
We love your new site! What inspired The Lo Down?
Lo: Thank you! In truth, the fans inspired TheLoDown.com. I found that my connection to fans, especially on Twitter and now via my own website, is especially heightened through social media. I'm so thrilled that I get to reach out to readers and followers on an even deeper and more personal level. I'm now everybody's best friend rather than just the other Hillsies.
Describe your style. Do you have a go-to-outfit?
Lo: My go to outfit starts at the bottom, with high, highhh heels (4 inch minimum, black in color). Then, black jeggings, silk tank (probably grey, lime green, black, or navy), and tailored, black blazer. Finish the look with my black Balencia bag, gold jewelry and black shades. I wear a lot of grey, navy and black with a pop of color here and there. Pretty classic all around.
You always look so great & fresh. If we looked inside your make-up bag what would we find?
Lo: You would find a lot of skin-care products and varying shades of foundation and bronzer. I think perfecting the skin is the key to any flawless make-up look. Moisturizing, followed quickly by foundation so that it sets while the skin is still dewy is essential.
When you leave the house what is always in your purse or clutch?
Lo:My blackberry, an eyelash curler, pressed powder and my Moleskin notebook.. Always.
Now that you have The Lo Down, The Hills has wrapped. What is up next for you?
Lo: My immediate day to day priority is the website. Also on the writing front, I have my first book coming out in January! It's also entitled The Lo Down surprise, surprise! The book is a relationship guide that is essentially the anti-"He's Just Not That Into You". I'm delivering a positive message rather than putting chicks down. On the TV side, I'm done with docusoaps. I have a pretty cool hosting gig in the works (can't spill the beans yet, though), and my long-term television goals include hosting my own talk show!
Ten things you don't know about Lo
1. My favorite nail-polish shade is light pink.
2. I prefer gold jewelry over silver.
3. I hate pickles.
4. I hate yellow mustard, but love ketchup (to the degree that I developed a ketchup rash as a kid!)
5. I'm a Mac.
6. My favorite class in college was biology.
7. I pick at my fingernails all the time.
8. My bedroom is yellow, but has about 5 different paint swatches currently on the wall. It's been this way for about a year.
9. My room is messy more often than not.
10. My all-time favorite food is cheese pizza, followed by spicy tuna rolls, followed by bolognese from La Scala.
Make sure you stay up-to-date with all things Lo (we demand it!) on The Lo Down The Down and Twitter! It is a MUST!
