How do you stay so thin?
This is a kind question because honestly once I turned 40, fell in love and Covid hit I packed on a solid 10 pounds! However I honestly don’t worry too much about a number on the scale. A few things I do to maintain my weight are : Exercise. I love to eat so exercise is must for me. I work out usually 5 days a week doing a combo of cardio and weight training. I eat minimally processed foods and sugars (besides my wine-haha). I eat pretty clean when I am at home then when I dine out I splurge and get what I am craving. I only drink water, unsweetened tea or sparkling water during the day. I really focus on Whole Foods and not foods out of a package.
Buying Golden Goose and can only get one pair, should it be fun or neutral?
Personally I would go the neutral route. My most favorite and worn pairs are neutral. Linking a few below that I think are great.
Skincare Pre and Post Workout?
Pre workout nothing. I roll out of bed brush my teeth and throw on a baseball hat and head to the gym. Post workout I wash my face when I shower and then apply Skinceuticals CE Ferulic Serum, Dr Lara Devgan Hyaluronic Acid, Colleen Rothschild Retinol Supreme Eye Serum and then Beautycounter Moisturizer. Then I apply my make up.
Do you plan on getting married?
Yep, I am sure we will get married I am just not in a rush too. Very content and happy in my relationship
at this moment. We definitely talk about getting married often though.

Product or Procedure for White teeth?
My teeth are sensitive so I have never really whitened them. I do like this whitening toothpaste.
Most significant thing you did to prepare yourself for divorce?
I don’t know if there is any way to truly prepare yourself for a divorce. Divorce just sucks. It was one of the hardest experiences of my life but also one that really changed and shaped me into the person I am today. I think because I had never been divorced I went into it very blindly and just figured it out as I went. I relied on family and friends for support and strength but at the end of it realized just how strong I really was.
Recent TV Show or Movie recs?
Emily in Paris and Younger were two shows I recently binged and loved!! I just watched Sing 2 with the kids and loved it, maybe more than the kids-haha! I also highly recommend The Alpinist and 14 Peaks documentaries they were so inspiring. Frances actually watched both with us and she loved them too. Evans and I just started re watching Curb Your Enthusiasm and I forgot how funny it is.
