Lauren Conrad has announced plans to launch a second website, just one week after her first.

The reality star-turned-fashion designer is launching LaurenConrad.com, a community based site where users can create profiles, share tips and take advice from the actress and entrepreneur on topics such as home decorating, party planning, healthy eating and make-up application.

The 25-year-old beauty said: "The site is more than just a content destination, it allows me to fully interact with my fans and share my thoughts, ideas and passions.

"This community also provides members the opportunity to connect with each other through their mutual love for fashion, entertainment and beauty."

The star has already promised to include a number of her own personal stories on the site, in an effort to inspire and motivate her fans and encourage them to contribute too.

The new website comes just a week after Lauren launched thebeautydepartment.com alongside her hairstylist, Kristin Ess, and make-up artist Amy Nadine, which is a site which helps fans how to master popular hair and make-up trends at home.
