Lauren's Six Picks

It seems like forever ago when we introduced you to the Nest team via 6 Picks. (In fact, we probably should redo them at some point as picks are likely different post Covid.) Back in 2019 you met Jess Davis, Jess Burne, and LuAnne Kleppe.

Now, as the Nest team is growing, we are pleased to introduce you to our newest member: Lauren Bristow, a Jane of all trades who works on everything from operations to marketing and beyond.

TRAVEL DESTINATIONI miss traveling almost more than seeing my friends & family. I can’t pick just one and have great memories from all of these places: Bali (honeymoon), Greece (girlfriends trip), Italy (10th Anniversary), Costa Rica (family trip), Cuba (friends trip), Croatia (family trip) and California (I think I may actually be a CA girl at heart). I will always have a special place in my heart for the UK...my husband’s family and many of our friends are there. And last, but not least...Mexico..the food, the people, the history & the culture (and let’s be honest..the weather) are truly incredible. I started going there as a child with my family and continue the tradition with my own family. 

PERSONAL CARE ITEMOne of my favorite things to do when I go to new places is visit the local pharmacy. I often buy the best products from where I am and experiment. That being said, my day to day wouldn’t be complete without Batiste Dry Shampoo, Waterproof Mascara, Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer and a probiotic.

FAVORITE FOODI will never turn down Greek or Mexican food. I will also never turn down Wolfer’s Rose Cider (the bottle is SO pretty) or a Patron Silver Margarita. 

SUMMER READINGI strongly lean toward fiction titles, often by female writers and almost always with strong female characters. Some of my recent favorites are Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens and The Vanishing Half by Britt Bennett.

NEST HARDWARE PIECEI really love the understated glam of the Transparency collection. I think it's incredibly versatile and beautifully balances the industrial and the elegant - the contrast makes it compelling. I have been plotting many projects. 

MOM HACKI have a teenager and a 3rd grader and they’re both SO different. I’ve learned that they are each their own (very different) people and to embrace that. But my newest Mom hack is to encourage your kids to cook. My 16 year old now regularly makes dinner for us. Winning!
