About

I would never leave home without… my cellphone.

I stay fit by… eating healthy, running, and strength training.

In my spare time I… like to explore new places (hello, NYC!), shop, cook, listen to live music, spend time with my boyfriend and friends, and visit my parents’ beach house at the Connecticut shore.

The first thing I do in the morning is… drink a Clean energy drink and check my emails.

My style inspirations are… Zoe Kravitz, Ashlee Simpson, Serena Vanderwoodsen, Vanessa Hudgens, and Kate Moss.

My favorite labels, designers, and shops are… Revolve, Rag & Bone, Gucci, UO, Superdown, One Teaspoon, Lovers + Friends, Alice + Olivia, Golden Goose, Bloomingdale’s, All Saints, For Love and Lemons, The M Jewelers, and I love shopping for vintage pieces. 

The one thing I’ll let myself splurge on is… a unique jacket, a designer handbag, or a pair of gorgeous shoes. Okay, so there’s more than one.

If I had to describe my style in one word… I wouldn’t be able to. I go from bohemian to 90s grunge, and too polished and girly. It all depends on my mood. 

My guilty pleasure is… binge-watching 90s TV shows or spending a day at the spa.

My favorite food is… anything from Mthr Vegan

My beauty essentials include… there’s way too many to name, but here’s my comprehensive list

My favorite musicians / bands are… I’m a huge fan of hip hop (especially 90s hip hop), classic rock, EDM (all genres), indie, 70s and 80s, soul and disco. I pretty much love all music except country.

My favorite magazines are… Nylon and Vogue.

My favorite vacation spots are… Las Vegas, Arizona, Puerto Vallarta, and the Connecticut Shore.

My favorite places in Los Angeles are… I compiled a few guides of my favorite spots after living there for almost 10 years. Here’s Part 1: Where to Sleep, Sip, and Shop, and Part 2: Where to Dine, Sightsee, Workout, and Get Pampered. Then here’s a roundup of my must-try restaurants (and dishes) in Los Angeles. Whether you’re visiting L.A., or a local…you’re bound to find something new and exciting to try.

My favorite places in NYC are… that remains to be seen.

One thing I’ve never done but would love to is… go skydiving.

My favorite TV shows are… for recents—The Deuce, Big Little Lies, and The Affair, but these are my all-time favorites.

When it comes to blogging, most people don’t realize… that it’s time-consuming and takes a lot of work. I usually write 7 days a week.

My staple item is… my Gucci mules, Golden Goose kicks, Rag & Bone boots, a studded moto jacket and my Vans—they all go with everything.

My favorite quote is… “Find what you love and let it kill you.”–Bukowski. (I have it tattooed on my arm.)
