What do you love most about the holidays?
I love going home to Florida. I don’t get to see my family much during the year since I live in NYC, so I always cherish my time at home.
What is your most favorite holiday tradition?
I love baking with my mom during the holidays! She’s always baking up a storm and it’s the best quality time together. Plus, who doesn’t love sampling the final products?
What is your favorite holiday dessert recipe to bake?
My mom has one of the best sugar cookie recipes ever. It’s so fun to make the big batches, just like we did when we were kids. She also has a great collection of holiday sprinkles; it’s so much fun and they make great gifts, too.
Your best holiday shopping tip or piece of advice:
I’ve become the biggest fan of online shopping. It’s the best way to get the best deals and I love avoiding the lines in stores.
What do you love most about your work?
I love getting to meet my readers in person and being able to work with some of my favorite brands.
Favorite Instagram account to follow:
I most recently started following @buddyeditions; it’s my friend’s new company and she shares interesting facts about artists and works of art!
Your current Netflix addiction:
I’ve been binging on Gilmore Girls.
Skincare product you can’t live without:
Fresh’s Soy Face Cleanser is great for sensitive skin. I use it in the morning to get my skin ready for makeup and at night to remove all my makeup!
Your favorite restaurant for brunch and your go-to order:
I go to Maison Kayser a few times a week. I always get the salmon tartine and a cappuccino!
