What is on your playlist right now? I’ve been listening to this new Viceroy/Big Data song on repeat — The Business of Emotion. It’s super fun and summery and like most songs I’ll listen to it 100x in a row until I’m sick of it.

When do you use your SunnyLions? I use my SunnyLions all the time. I use them constantly in NYC – commuting to work, walking around, running errands, working out etc. They’re great for travel as well and the tangle-free aspect is perfect for me because they’re always stuffed in my messy bag.

SunnyLion Beach Select? Trestles Beach. Love the bright yellow! Yellow is one of my favorite colors and I love the Trestles because they’re bright and summery but also kind of soft unlike some other bright bold colors.

Favorite Beach? Would have to be St. Malo in California. Grew up going there as a kid and have the best memories of learning how to jump under waves and even late night skinny dipping with friends…

What could you not live without? Probably my phone… sorry bad answer but its honest. OR my dogs (they’re everything)

Favorite Brands?  I love Soludos shoes (super comfy and perfect for summer), Everlane (great basics), Theory (perfect dresses), and Illesteva (want to buy all of their glasses

Current Obsessions? Hmm… I use the word “obsessed” pretty loosely but as of recently I’ve rediscovered Klondike bars and I would say I’m kind of obsessed..

Favorite spots in LA? NY? In LA, probably Poke Poke stand on the Venice boardwalk (amazing fresh Poke bowls to go) and Pie N Burger in Pasadena (best burgers in the entire world). In NYC, there are a lot to name but Taqueria (East Village) for tacos, Grand Victoria (Williamsburg) for drinks and fun outdoor space, and Balaboosta (NoLiTa) for a low key yummy meal — try the cauliflower.

Personal hero? Katniss? LOL but really, I do love Jennifer Lawrence.

Life tip? Make an effort over people. It gets you out of your head and always makes you feel better.

Favorite meal? Probably a burger from Pie N Burger

Biggest Vice? Wine and my phone

Few Things on the Bucket List? Travel everywhere.. or at least most places. And scuba dive.
