About

The book that changed my life…

. I was captivated by the little girl’s emotional power and strength in the face of a loss, diversity, and poverty. Also, how a unique and powerful, group of women bonded together and found beauty, love, and support in their surroundings.  

The morning and nighttime routines I swear by…

Morning:

Every morning, my husband, daughter and I have a tight 10-second group hug. After that, it’s pretty much a mad dash out the door with a dark roast coffee in hand. I listen to the New York Times  on the way to work. Each episode takes one current news topic under the microscope and tells a long-form story so you can understand the true historical nuances and depth of a fleeting news headline.

Nighttime:

A long hot shower with smells-amazing natural body wash followed by a glass of dry red wine on the couch watching something uplifting and comical on Netflix.

The Instagram handles I follow religiously are…

@beetches_sup for comical relief, @daniellelaporte for a confidence boost, @bbc_travel for photography, @massy.arias for fitness motivation and @collectivco for home inspiration.

This season, my go-to cocktail order is…

High-quality tequila with soda water, jalapeno and tons of lime. It’s refreshing and spicy at the same time! Plus, low sugar to prevent a hangover.

The most surprising thing I learned from a MyDomaine story is…

Chivalry is alive! I love  about love poem books and the current poets that people are charmed by.
