Lauren Conrad has a new travel buddy.

The 26-year-old was spotted soaking up the sun and cuddling up with her new beau, William Tell, while in Mexico on July 13.

As fans of her reality shows (Laguna Beach, The Hills) know, Cabo San Lucas  is a favorite vacation destination for the TV personality and fashion designer — so it isn’t a surprise that she chose this hot spot.

How did the couple spend their quality time?

The Hollywood hottie sported a Missoni-print string bikini and sunglasses as she lounged poolside with her 32-year-old boyfriend — University of Southern California law student and former guitarist for the band Something Corporate.

Seen grasping their smartphones, the trip may not have been all play, but that didn’t stop the couple from finding time to cuddle while working on their tans.

This may even be a sign of a recent self-esteem boost for Conrad.  Last year, she told Glamour magazine, “On the [previous] vacation to Cabo, I wore a bathing suit on the beach for the first time in years.  Usually I’m just petrified.”

Lauren was also a bit unsure about men after her break up last summer to actor Kyle Howard.  When questioned about getting back in the game, Conrad suggested she was going to be more focused on her work.

It seems the stunner just can’t keep the fellas away.

After a brief romance with Derek Hough, Lauren was back in the dating scene again — which is how she met fellow Orange County native, Tell.

The two have quietly been dating since February but they’ve become increasingly more public, as seen in these photos.
