This summer, the one thing I absolutely, positively cannot live without is:
"Weekend Airbnb getaways."

Current food obsession:
"Homemade bread. I learned to make it from scratch using the Tartine method, and it is a freaking revelation. My current favorite recipe is made with kalamata olives and herbs de Provence."

Next up on my Netflix is:
"I mean, it's just about killing time until House of Cards comes back on. But Orange is the New Black has proven to be a pretty good substitute for the time being."

Latest guilty pleasure:
"The guy I'm seeing is an artist, so he makes his own schedule like me. This can create a productivity problem, as I've recently discovered how nice it is to sleep in on any given Tuesday and — why not? — have a leisurely breakfast while I'm at it."

The one song I can listen to over and over...and over is:
"Let's see... how about The National's "Don't Swallow the Cap?"

The latest trick I've picked up from the other R29 editors is:
"I really liked the recent article about "leaning in" for introverts. I'm a bit of an introvert myself, so it was helpful to hear the suggestion about scheduling one-on-one time with superiors (editors), so that they can get to know me better."

My must-have cheap thrill:
"Oh, thrift shopping. There's nothing like it."
