“I’m an on-air fashion & beauty expert and publicist. Proud to be a girly-girl. I’d love to be the next Kelly Ripa.”
My style is: feminine, fun, classic, chic, on-trend.
My favorite designer right now is: Rebecca Taylor.
People usually compliment my: Long lashes—I swear by Vaseline on them every night.
I’ll never forget the time: I mastered the art of driving a Vespa through the amazing (and extremely dangerous) streets of Rome. I’ve never been more scared or felt more alive!
Worst habit: I bite my lip when I’m nervous (not the cutest, but at least it always looks like I have lip color on!).
For my skin, I use: Aveeno Foaming Cleanser, Aveeno SPF 30 Moisturizer, Origins GinZing Eye Cream (I keep it in the fridge—reduces puffy morning eyes). I’m an Irish girl, so when I want to fade freckles, my go-to product is the Ling Hi-Vitamin C Brightening Solution.
My favorite makeup tip: Only put bronzer where the sun would naturally tan you (i.e. forehead, all of your cheeks (not just apples), bridge of nose, and chin).
Current beauty product obsession: LOVING Tan Towel’s Tinted “On-the-Glow” Moisturizer — great for that summer-time faux glow “just came from the beach” look.
But I also can’t live without: I know this is weird, but Vaseline. Like I said before, I use it on my lashes at night to moisturize, and as a mascara replacement for beach days. It’s also an amazing product for winter — I put all over my feet and then put on a pair of cozy socks at bed; I wake up to super soft feet. Lastly, it keeps my lips luscious and kissable 😉.
People might be surprised to know: I have extensions—Thanks to the one and only Mia Shin at Anastasia’s Salon in Brentwood. There is no one better.
My favorite hair product is: Fekkai’s Gloss Spray — makes hair shiny as a Mattel doll. For my fellow blondies out there, I love L’Oreal’s purple shampoo — eliminates brassy tones and keeps you plantinum. Also, I’ll use baby powder on my roots when I don’t have time to shampoo—soaks up the oils and it makes for a great root cover-up as well (if you’re blonde).
I don’t understand people who don’t like: Queso—I’ve recently discovered the magic of queso. It may just be melted nacho-esque cheese, but it is glorious and I could eat it with any meal.
The restaurant I can never get tired of are: Newsroom Café in LA (the meatless hot wings are out of control).
Though I can make a mean: taco. I was born and raised in San Diego, so tacos are my go-to meal to make. I may be a California girl, but Mexican food is my specialty. Nothing like homemade guac to go with!
Who inspires me: My parents. My mom and dad have been married for 30 years and they still crack up at each other, smile, and love life together. Their love story is an inspiration for all. And in their own rights, my dad is the most patient and kind man I’ve ever met; my mom is a pillar of strength and full of life—not to mention she has a contagious laugh that would put anyone in a good mood. I am so blessed.
