“My site covers personal style, designer interviews, and is filled with glossie inspiration! I’m always deal hunting, constantly dreaming of the gypset life (gypsy-jetset) and hoping to become a TV style correspondent.”

My style is: eclectic style chameleon.

My favorite designer right now is: I can’t narrow down! All Saints, White + Warren for cool basics, and Rachel Roy.

People usually compliment my: watch…it’s from the Fossil outlet store but everyone always thinks that it’s a Rolex.

I’ll never forget the time: I bought my first pair of Christian Louboutins. I stalked them at the Bergdorf Goodman sale for days until they hit a price that I could afford.

For my skin, I use: Oil of Olay! I use the moisturizer for day and the night cream, which leaves my skin dewy and soft every morning.

My favorite makeup tip: I put a little bit of Stila “Kitten” eye shadow
in the inner corners of my eyes to look bright-eyed and awake.

Current beauty product obsession: OPI Dulce de Lechenail polish—it’s a great neutral color.

My favorite scent right now: Stella by Stella McCartneyand I also love Tom Ford Black Orchid— depends on my mood!

People might be surprised to know: I played Division I Lacrosse in college until I tore my ACL.

My favorite hair product is: Bed Head Head Rush shine spray.It smells delicious and isn’t sticky.

But I also can’t live without: Pantene Beautiful Lengths shampoobecause it is made for long hair and keeps it fresh without weighing down my strands.

I don’t understand people who don’t like: Avocados!

The restaurants I can never get tired of are: Uva on the Upper East side — they have the most amazing truffle cream gnocchi! Or 44 ½ on 44th and 10th. They have an amazing brunch with parmesan cheese grits.

Though I can make a mean: batch of Muddy Buddies, the Chex cereal recipe made of peanut butter, chocolate and powdered sugar. YUM.

Who and what inspires me: Anything that relates to ancient cultures, art history, and strong, powerful women who chart their own paths in life.
