Lest you forget that Lauren Conrad has somehow managed to gracefully ascend from Laguna Beach reality star to badass boss/CEO, here's one reminder:

And here's another—the 29-year-old lifestyle website creator has effectively banned "body-shaming" words from her site, including "thin," "slim," and "skinny."

"Starting this month, we'll be banning any body shaming terms from the site, and replacing them with words like 'fit,' 'toned,' and 'healthy,'" she wrote on "We try to do this for the most part anyway, but now we're making it official! The word skinny will now be reserved for skinny jeans."

"My editorial team and I had a long talk about it, and we want to make sure that the focus is on being fit as opposed to a number on the scale. Every body is created differently—and healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes," she continued.

Yes, LC—er, Lauren. Yes! All we can say is, girl knows what's up.
