Stories Written:

The one piece in my closet I absolutely can't live without is...
"A hooded fur vest I bought on—it's been a lifesaver this winter, and I try to get away with wearing it over almost every outfit I own. It's so warm, and did I mention it has a hood?"

Current obsession...
"Travel. I'm always planning a trip—in the past few years, I've been to Egypt, Lebanon, Iceland, Denmark, Peru, Argentina, Uruguay and Greece. Next up is Thailand, but that's only if I don't book a last-minute getaway to Istanbul or Morocco first."

The one song I can listen to over and over and over to is...
"Anything Bruce Springsteen—I'm born and bred Jersey and love all the classics: 'Thunder Road,' 'She's The One,' 'Dancing In The Dark.' Oh, you mean something from this decade? I can't get enough of Ellie Goulding's "Burn.' It makes me want to dance."

The latest trick I've picked up from the other R29 editors is...
"Red lipstick is always a good idea."
