A Day in My Life:

What do you love most about Your City?

I have loved Los Angeles since I moved here and I gained true appreciation for it when my family left to Florida when I was 12. I just finally moved back last year and my favorite thing about LA is how high the ceiling is here for your dreams, self improvement, and becoming the most supreme version of yourself. There are so many possibilities and ways to challenge yourself. In LA, I feel stimulated mentally every day.

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?

My favorite breakfast is the Puruba Acai bowl from Ubatuba.

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM – Drinking coffee, writing, and/or listening to Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday podcast.

10:00 AM - I could still be writing, working, or at the gym.

12:00 PM - Favorite Lunch spot/meal?

My favorite lunch spot is this place in Copenhagen, Denmark called Cafe Mahalle. They’ve got this INCREDIBLE flatbread pizza that doesn’t make sense.

7:00 PM - I’m probably coming home from something. I could be on the train listening to some Lalah Hathaway, Travis Scott, or SZA.

11:00 PM - I’m probably asleep unless its the weekend (I’m a granny).

What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?

I really love latte’s and towards the end of the week a nice refreshing Mule w/ Gin hits the spot.

If not that, tea works wonders for me throughout the day.

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?

Spotify App and/or Instagram

My favorite Instagram account is definitely jstlbby right now. She’s so inspiring and unapologetically herself. It’s a breath of fresh air to see someone like that nowadays.

What should everyone try at least once?

Not caring what anyone else thinks.

Where do you enjoy getting lost?

I enjoy getting lost in old photos/videos I’ve taken with my friends. Also stories and books I can’t put down.
