This summer, the one thing I absolutely, positively cannot live without is... "Bronzer! While we don't get many (or any!) bikini days in S.F. during the summer, I still like to look like a golden goddess, even if I'm wrapped in a sweater and shivering."

Current food obsession... "Napoletana pizza. Through some food research courtesy of Refinery29, I may have developed a slight addiction. I'm totally drinking the Kool-Aid on what's happening at Una Pizza Napoletana in SoMa. I literally dream about the dough."

Next up on my Netflix is... "Netflix and I are currently on a break and I have started up with HBO online where I have been watching "How To Make It In America," "Entourage," and "Girls"— obvi."

Latest guilty pleasure... "I never skip dessert and will find any excuse to eat ice cream. This will never change. People that don't like sweets scare me."

The one song I can listen to over and over...and over to is... "Absolutely anything by Beyoncé. She's my way cooler, way sexier, way richer soulmate. Whatever problem I am having in my life, I always turn to her. Right now I have "Best Thing I Never Had" on repeat."

The latest trick I've picked up from a R29 editor is... "Spa days! When you are connected 24/7 and totally stressed to the max, it's the best way to make yourself simmer for a few hours."

My must-have cheap thrill... "I absolutely love thrifting. I'm originally from Cape Cod, the land of antiquing, so I'm pretty sure it's in my blood. The best thing to do in the Bay Area is to hit the surrounding suburbs. The good stuff in the city gets scooped up pretty fast but you can find major scores in Petaluma, Belmont, and the East Bay. I found this amazing chartreuse vintage DKNY blazer that is one of my staples for ONE DOLLAR. That, to me, is winning."
