I’m a PR executive from Los Angeles, California living and working in Berlin, Germany. I head global PR & communications for an international firm.
I love books, music & films, traveling, cooking, dancing, and riding horses. I’m a lover of style & fashion. Given the option, I will usually choose black…or Chanel. Lots of Chanel. I don’t take myself too seriously and seek to find the humor and wisdom in life’s experiences. I am a chronic capturer of photos. I indulge in challenges to create. I’m a sucker for the unique or one-of-a-kind. I believe in the power of personal choice and personal style and know that those qualities only happen through vulnerability. Malibu is my happy place in America, and Bavaria is my happy place in Europe. Intuition is my guide and my compass. I hope to arrive to my death late, in love, and a little drunk…on wine. 🙂
I feel most beautiful when I’m being my own kind of beautiful — simply put — that is by being myself and letting people see the real, imperfect, flawed, quirky, weird, beautiful, talented, brilliant, special, magical person that I am. I also feel especially stunning when I’m being fearless in the pursuit of what sets my soul on fire and causes it to dance inside my body. I feel completely gorgeous when I’m living my life in love– (and not necessarily in the romantic sense!) –whether it be doing something I love like reading a book, listening to a favorite song, taking a dance class, traveling, or spending time with family & friends, I do all things with love because a life lived in love is always extraordinarily beautiful…and certainly never dull. No beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart. Sophia Loren maybe sums it up best as well: ”Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful.” I truly believe that we all are just that, too!
CHANEL // Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Monte Carlo, €35
I love CHANEL products. Absolutely LOVE. Most of my beauty products are from the line but I do incorporate a few other brands into the mix as well. This lipstick is my go-to color for a natural, subtle, yet supple & sexy pout.
Buly 1803 // Rosehip Oil, €5-€20
Rosehip oil has so many benefits and is my secret to a radiant & young complexion. It’s harvested from the seeds of rose bushes mostly grown in Chile & South Africa and is full of antioxidants, vitamins, & essential fatty acids that do wonders for the skin. My fave is from Buly 1831, an incredibly sweet boutique in Paris that is always a must-visit when I travel there.
Sabé Masson – La maison du Soft Perfume // Eu Vent de Vous, €22
I recently became obsessed with these perfume sticks upon one of my best friends sharing a Harper’s Bazaar article with me featuring the brand and then us visiting the store in Paris. I travel A LOT and mostly with a carry-on only, so the sticks are perfect for someone like me who is always on the go and needs to limit those liquids brought on board. The incredible scents are an added bonus with Eu Vent de Vous being the bestseller and one of my faves.
