p a i g e d e n i m I'm completely obsessed! Her jeans fits my body perfectly—it doesn't matter what style. They always seem to work. I can't count how many pairs I have. I have that many!
e l e c t r i c t o o t h b r u s h Keeps my teeth super clean and white! Need I say more? 3 l a b I started using it almost six months ago on my face and I've never received so many compliments. m o p h i e c a s e It's the best invention ever! Let's just say it has saved my job on a daily basis. And it fits perfectly in my back pocket when I'm cooking.
s o p h i a w e b s t e r I Love! Love! her shoes. Not only are they comfortable, they're sexy, fun, and girly. A true representation of my personality.
e o s l i p b a l m I have them everywhere, gym bag, knife bag, jackets, night table, coffee table, kitchen.

g u c c i I have been deeply under the spell of Gucci every since Alessandro Michele became their Creative Director. His magical designs feel plucked from a Midsummer Night’s Dreams.
m a t t a I’m obsessed with their gorgeous bohemian-style clothing made from swoon-worthy textiles in stunning color palettes. Their dupatta shawls are a class act onto themselves, they drape beautifully and also come in the most beautiful seasonal hues.
a n t h r o p o l o g i e My go-to place for gorgeous home décor, boho-chic clothing and design inspiration via their transporting in-store experiences and gorgeously-conceived catalogues.
a b c h o m e This stunning design destination is one of my favorite places to visit for sustainable design for home, adornment, and inspiration.
n a t u r a l b e a u t y I decided to switch to natural skin-care products and makeup after hearing a talk that Dr. Frank Lipman gave in which he spoke about the importance of using natural products on your skin as it is the largest organ of our bodies and is very porous. Through stores like ABC Carpet and Home and Credo, I fell in love with the RMS Beauty line of natural makeup.

e s c e n t r i c m o l e c u l e s The perfume that truly smells different on everyone, it has a pheromone-like fascination and a cult following. Obsessed, and so good to layer with other fragrances to subtly change their impact.
g u c c i d i o n y s u s e m b r o i d e r e d b a g s Let’s be honest, everything they are doing is perfection lately, but this bag is HEAVEN.
S K - I I f a c i a l t r e a t m e n t e s s e n c e Pretty sure this is sourced from the fountain of youth.
t r a c y a n d e r s o n d a n c e c l a s s e s These classes make me feel like a teenager again in jazz dance class + they are the hardest most effective work outs of all time!!! Tracy is a genius goddess, I have chugged her Kool-Aid.
a q u a z u r r a ' s h e l l o l o v e r s h o e s They go with everything, they’re comfortable and they are CHIC!
v i n t a g e Y S L j e w e l r y I’ve recently acquired a few pieces of 1980’s YSL jewelry from my favorite vintage jewelry site Sarara Couture; she has the best selection of designer jewelry.

b e a a r r o w r i n g Grey Diamonds and Labradorite: can't get enough of these right now and I love them together. The cool tones look so yummy in yellow and rose gold sometimes I have a hard time deciding which!
r e v e r b e r a t i o n r a d i o p o d c a s t s I can't function without music playing. And sometimes deciding what to play is as difficult as deciding what to eat, usually I run out of ideas by midday because I have to make A LOT of decisions at work. So these modern-day mix tapes always get me into a happy place—never boring, always awesome.
c h l o r o p h y l l p i l l s I call it taking my jewel tones.

h e r j e w e l r y a d d i c t i o n I only wear vintage jewelry. I get most of my vintage jewelry from Pippin Vintage in Chelsea. This is one of my best finds…diamonds & platinum ring.
r e n e w e l f i n i s h i n g s e r u m I only trust Lillian from Christine Chin Spa (Christine was also my neighbor in Chinatown) in LES to touch my face! I have been going to them since 2003 for microdermabrasion. They keep me looking young. Its seriously the medicine for my skin. t h e N Y C e s s e n t i a l ; a g r e a t b a g I am a multitasker, but I also like to pack light. Just need to tote my essentials which is a cell phone, sunglasses, cardholder (which holds everything), keys and chapstick or lipstick. Always need a crossbody to keep my hands free so I can work on multiple things, especially when I'm out and about. 3.1 Phillip Lim has a great style out in navy...the new black. g e t t i n g j u s t t h e r i g h t g l o w Every now and then a company will discontinue my favorite shimmer product. First Trish McEvoy, then Shu Uemura. Now I found Haloscope from Glossier...currently my fave shimmer product.
