Favorite Instagram account to follow:
The artist @jasonpolan is a real joy to follow. He’s just so talented and charming and funny—and sometimes he writes these amazing, involved captions that just make your day better.
Favorite pizza topping:
Pineapple’s where it’s at. Or burrata. But, really, burrata would probably be delicious on cardboard.

On Sunday, we’ll find you wearing:
These Outdoor Voices running sweats. Though, sadly, there’s a 90% chance I won’t be running.
Your most recent culinary discovery and obsession:
Your favorite restaurant for brunch and your go-to order:
It really doesn’t get better than Prune in the East Village. I’m a Midwesterner originally, so I appreciate that they open on weekends at 10 A.M.—not some horrifically late afternoon hour like most New York joints—and their Chicago Matchbox bloody mary is the very best I’ve ever had.
Your celebrity crush:
I’ll always love Hugh Grant, I’ll tell you what. It’s a combination of the bumbling-ness, the floppy hair, and the crinkly eyes, I think.
Your last great read:
You know, I’ve been recommending Quiet a whole lot. It’s a really fascinating book about introverts, and I think I secretly am one.
The beauty product found in your bag at all times:
Midnight snack of choice:
We’re big ice cream eaters at my house, and the current go-to is Ben & Jerry’s Vanilla Honey Caramel Greek Frozen Yogurt (that’s a real mouthful—zing!).
You decompress each day by:
Cooking dinner! I’m a huge hoarder of recipes on Pinterest, too.
