dote: What's the best purchase you've made on dote? Lauren: Hard to choose! But I once bought like actually 50 facemasks on dote because I wanted to be the type of person who 1. Never needs a facemask and doesn’t have one and 2. Always has an extra to give to a friend. Best purchase ever.
dote: What's your favorite book and why? Lauren: George Orwell’s 1984 was the first book that really stopped and made me think. It’s the first time I remember reading a book and understanding that it was more than a story, that it was saying things about our society now, even though it was written a long time ago. I try to reread it every 5 years or so.
dote: What's your favorite family tradition? Lauren: Every New Years growing up my family would go to our cabin in the mountains of Alaska (where I grew up) and have a huge meal of fondue. It was such a cozy and festive way to ring in the new year. I still throw fondue parties for my friends here in the city occasionally.
dote: What's your go to coffee order? Lauren: The coffee shop next to our office always complains about how inconsistent I am- but I like to keep them on their toes. But it’s usually either a cappuccino with whole milk or a drip coffee with cream :)
dote: What's something your followers may not know about you? Lauren: Probably that I was born and raised in Alaska. dote: What's your favorite quote? Lauren: “Laugh as much as you can”
