  • Favorite pair of shoes: My Valentino Rockstud pumps and always a great pair of Nikes
  • When I wake up in the morning i do these three things: Check Instagram, look up the weather for the day and think of any good excuse to go back to sleep for thirty more minutes.
  • If I could pick any two people to eat with: My grandmother, she passed away before I was born but I know she would be one of my best friends, she was gorgeous with great style and always so chic. To join us I would choose Babe Walker, as the entertaining writer of White Girl Problems we would be gaurenteed an exciting dinner for three.
  • My favorite thing to do on a Friday night: If it involves dancing, drinks,fabulous people, and gives me a reason to get dressed up… count me in.

  • I’m addicted to: Iced tea and Hermes, I couldn’t imagine my life without either.
  • My most embarrassing moment is: More like my most embarrassing time period, 6th and 7th grade. I had the most heinous hair cut, horrifying makeup and the most terrible Abercrombie and Fitch clothing. Not Chic.
  • The most important lesson in life I’ve learned is: Be brave, step out of your comfort zone and travel the world, You will never be the same having seen the moon shine from the other side of the world. You cannot truly understand others until you have done so.
  • The favorite thing about my job is: Helping others achieve their goals and dreams through the power and language and communication.
  • The best gift I ever received: My family, I believe that i have been given the most extraordinary life with amazing opportunities and a lifetime of adventures. I would be nothing without them. They are the best friends you could ever have in life.
  • My favorite store: As a shopaholic I could never choose just one store. Topping the list however would include, Lululemon, Saks Fifth Ave, and Hermes.
