Hi Loves,

Recently, I have been binge watching Vogue’s 73 questions; an online video series featuring celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, Blake Lively, and Hailey Bieber. The unseen host (Joe Sabia) rapidly fires questions for an up-close and personal look into the celebrity’s life. Each question is only allowed one take and all of them have to be answered in 10 minutes or less. I thought it would be a fun post to do my own version of 73 Questions. Let’s face it, social distancing is making it hard to connect with each other. Meeting new friends is at ground zero. Save these questions and share them with others during our quarantine. Here’s a glimpse into my life and what makes me ME. I hope you connect with my responses and find it relatable and sharable.

  1. On a scale of 1-10, how excited are you about life right now? 10 — it’s always a 10.
  2. Describe yourself in a hashtag? #dontgiveup
  3. If you could do a love scene with anyone, who would it be? John Mulaney…we would be so awkward and laughing the entire time. Bryce is okay with this. He is always first in my life.
  4. If your life was a musical, what would the marquee say? “Wait, what?”
  5. What’s one thing people don’t know about you? I am very superstitious.
  6. What’s your wakeup ritual? I hate to say it, but the first thing I do is look at my phone. It truly wakes me up because of the light. Then, I slide on my slippers and make breakfast. I have to eat first thing in the morning and have always been like that. I try to give myself plenty of time in the morning so I can have a full breakfast. It’s my quiet time to just think and manifest a good vibe for the day.
  7. What’s your go to bed ritual? I always chug water before bed, take off my makeup, brush my teeth, and take my probiotics…in that order. Once I’m in bed, I pat Sky up and write in my journal. I like to end each night with a thought about my day and statement about my future.
  8. What’s your favorite time of day? I love mornings. I love breakfast. I love morning light. I love morning runs. I feel the best in the morning when the sun is pouring in my apartment and I have Architectural Digest playing in the background on the television. Something about waking up and accomplishing things early in the morning makes me so happy.
  9. What is one thing no one knows about you? I’m an open book, so I don’t really have anything that’s hidden from people.
  10. Dream country to visit? I really want to visit Croatia before I die, but I also want to see South Africa, India, and Japan. It’s so hard to choose just one because I want to go everywhere.
  11. What’s the biggest surprise you’ve had? Bryce has surprised me so many times and each one is so special. I can’t even think which one is the biggest. He leaves me speechless. I do remember a purse he surprised me with when I was crying over a ridiculous Economics online class. I had failed a quiz. No worries. I ended up with a decent grade. At the moment I had hit a brick wall and was sobbing over the class. He pulled out a Coach purse with a heart on it and I started crying again because I was so touched.
  12. Heels or flats/sneakers? If you would have asked me this question a few years ago, I wouldn’t have even thought twice about saying heels. Now, I am much more of a sneakers kinda gal. Living downtown, I am constantly on the move, walking, running, and hustling.
  13. Vintage or new? 100% vintage. Thrifting with my mom is one of my favorite things to do. 80% of my wardrobe is thrifted, eBay, or Half of Half clearance.
  14. Your affirmation for today? I am a badass and I will achieve my dreams.

  16. What are three things you can’t live without? My dog, cold brew, and a notebook. Bryce is a given.
