LAUREN’S SALES TIPS


TIP 1


TIP 2


TIP 3


Definitely recommend a wine tasting tour. It was fantastic to see how it was made.


Hire a car. You can get off the beaten track and it gives you freedom to explore.


Suggest West Hollywood, rather than Downtown LA. The hotels are nicer and it has Sunset Boulevard.


because it was off the beaten track it was really exciting. We went dune buggying at Oceano Dunes and that was an absolute scream. I’m not a very good driver, but I’m an adrenaline junkie and I couldn’t stop screaming all the way round. After that we went wine tasting, which was amazing. I’ve never been to a winery but I would 100% recommend it, even if you’re not into wine.


Q. What other activities did you do? A. In Paso Robles, we went on a tour of the Firestone Brewery. I’m not into beer, but they walked us through the production process, which was fascinating. From there, we went to Creston Ranch, where we went horse riding at sunset.


was fantastic. I felt like a celebrity. The photographer was friendly and put me at ease. I had never done a photo shoot before but I got really into it and was doing loads of poses by the end.


Q. The next stop was Pismo Beach. What were your highlights? A. Pismo Beach was not somewhere I had considered going to before, but


Q. What else did you get up to? A. We had dinner at a farmers’ market in San Luis Obispo, where there was a great atmosphere. We also spent an afternoon on a Chardonnay sail ship where we had food and music on board. At one point, we could hear this really strange noise and there were loads of sea lions under the pier.


Lauren on…horse riding in California A lot of the other Cover Stars had been horse riding before, which made me nervous. But the everyone at Central Coast Trailrides at Creston Ranch was lovely, and introduced me to all the horses, which calmed me down. My horse was a black and white one called Domino. They do this day in, day out so they know what they’re doing and they made a real effort to put me at ease. We went riding at sunset, which was a lovely experience and my favourite part of the trip. It was really relaxing and definitely something I would recommend to my clients.
