When you’re in “the zone” while working on your line, what is your go-to song to get motivated?
I listen to really mellow music when I’m working on the line, it keeps me focused.. I love anything by The Cranberries.

You’re at Sant Ambroeus in Soho for brunch, what’s your favorite order?
Love Sant Ambroeus. My team and I always make sure to stop by when we’re in New York, because we're usually staying in Soho. I usually order the avocado toast.

Which vintage Chanel item in your closet are you obsessed with at the moment?
My new furry Chanel bag from Rice & Beans Vintage. I’m loving fuzzy textures right now.

What’s your favorite NYC coffee shop?
La Colombe is great, or Intelligentsia at the High Line Hotel has a really cozy vibe.

Moto jacket or denim jacket?
So tough.. Leather and denim are my two favorites, but I think I have to go with moto jacket, it's such a classic.

Instastories or Snapchat?
Instagram for sure.

Netflix or Hulu?
We don't have TV in our house so neither really... But my husband got us all a projector for Christmas, so sometimes we watch movies together on the weekends as a family.

Sunday morning jog or sunday morning bloody mary?
I wish I could say jog, but I'm so busy running the business I don't get too much time for exercise these days... Usually on the weekends, we'll go on a family hike up Griffith Park, which is right in our backyard... Most days I make an almond milk latte in the morning, and on weekends, spend the rest of the day hanging with family and friends in our backyard, cooking, and spending time together.
