The book that changed my life:  by William Zinsser. A friend whose writing I adore recommended the book. I’ve read and re-read it a thousand times. It’s the most tattered of any book I own.

The most amazing meal I've ever had: I wouldn’t be able to narrow it down! I’ve been so fortunate in my career to taste some of the most talented chefs’ work. Recently I had a phenomenal meal at  in Amsterdam and an unforgettable dinner at  where Queen Victoria would take her tea. If André Garrett’s salad of Devon crab and Filet of Longhorn Beef were my last meal, I’d be okay with that!

The morning and nighttime routines I swear by:

In the morning, I use  in the shower. It’s from Whole Foods, and is one item I can’t live without. At night I use  to wipe away all of the impurities a cleanser leaves behind. Once I’m in bed I like to moisturize my lips. I’m currently using . It’s certified organic and free of harsh chemicals and parabens. I also love . It’s super rich so I love to wear it while I sleep.  

The best décor hack I've learned: I’m really into feng shui and learned a ton from the book  by Karen Rauch Carter.

My interior stylist spirit animal is: Martyn Lawrence Bullard. I am obsessed with Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian’s homes, and the Colony Palms Hotel in Palm Springs.

The Instagram handles I follow religiously are: @margoandme, @juliahengel, and @alliwebb.

This season, my go-to cocktail order is: A concoction of earl grey–infused vodka, dry vermouth, Meyer lemon, and lavender. It’s called the  at Watertable at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach, and it tastes like relaxation.

The first lesson I learned as an Adult with a capital A: An editor I admire tremendously reminded me that we don’t always get rewarded for our honesty.

The most surprising thing I learned from a MyDomaine story is: I can be type A and a perfectionist, and I know this holds me back. I loved learning from  to value creativity over perfection.
