What is your morning routine look like getting ready for a typical day? What Products and essentials can you not leave the house without?
-I try to do 30-60 minutes of exercise each morning. I use Biologique Recherche's Creme Placenta morning and night and I apply SPF 30 religiously. My approach to makeup is less is more. Make up mystifies me and I rarely switch up my makeup routine. I use Chanel foundation , Givenchy Mr Light concealer, Glossier lipstick in Leo, Glossier glow stick, rust-colored blush and eyeshadow, a little pencil in my brows, and barley any mascara . Two sprays of Eccentric Molecule before I leave the house.
Favorite new Personal care product for summer?
-I don’t have anything in particular I’m pining for but I am curious about jade face rollers and I want to visit the Glossier store that opened recently. I’m curious about their mascara.
Old school favorite skin care?
-Spf 30, plenty of of sleep, avoid alcohol and sugar, and nutritious food. I recently tossed my Beauty Blender and started applying makeup with my fingertips.
If you could treat yourself to a self care/ Spa day what would you do and where would you like to go?
-Spa days are a luxury I fail to treat myself to. I’m a novice and would love recommendations. I was given a Burke Williams gift certificate 20 years ago and would love to go there again . I also have had one of those scrub downs at Wi Spa but it was kind of torture. I prefer a soothing experience.

Ok Let’s talk style, what trend are you dying to try or experiment with for summer?
-Bike shorts. Big question mark there but I do want to try.
What is your favorite essential summer accessory? Or is there something that’s not out there yet that you want?
-A cute sandal that’s comfy enough to wear on set all day.
Who is your style icon that’s currently inspiring your summer wardrobe?
-My current style icon is Lady Aberlin from Mr Rogers. But not only her dresses, hair, and earrings - I want to be as kind and compassionate.
What decade are you ready to bring back styles from right now?
-The 70’s by way of the 90’s will always have a place in my heart. Major pangs of nostalgia when I see the current Acne SS18 because that’s how I thrifted in high school. When I get styling assignments for 90’s and Y2K I relive emotional pain from those times. It can be therapeutic but honestly any trend past like 1982 can go F itself. I like clothing that reminds me of spending time with my grandmothers as a young child, Holly Hobbie, or my mom’s office attire of the late 70’s. Just give me a defined waist, midi skirts, tall boots (particularly the Dior FW18 patchwork ones) a kerchief, a wide shoulder and I’m good. I also love a crafty element, some ruffles, a scalloped edge, embroidery, appliqué, and patchwork.
When do you feel like your figured out your own personal style? How would you describe it?
-I’ve described my style as Minimal/Whimsical which is oxymoronic but covers my spectrum . I pretty much know what I’d wear and how I’d wear it now. For example I would wear overalls with a puff sleeve blouse and pumps. When I wear them with a t-shirt I add a blazer. I don’t do casual unless I’m going to bed or the gym.
Where are your favorite places to look for style Inspiration?
-This is boring, but Instagram and Pinterest.
What new trend are you NOT buying into?
-Crocs and probably bike shorts.
You were an early supporter of Lykke Wullf (THANK YOU!), back when I had a cramped bedroom “Studio”, so what first drew you to the brand?
-Ooooh I remember it well ! It was pale blue silk dress with a hand painted eyes .
Last but not least what does the Ideal evening look like for you?
