Friday day-to-night look?

I love wearing cute short sundresses with boots during the day. At night, you’ll find me spicing up my outfit by adding a gold chain belt or a pair of strappy heels.

Saturday Ritual?

On the weekends, I like to rewind and detox! You can find me boxing at Rumble Boxing, doing a full body session at Quick Cryo, or hitting the Williamsburg bridge for a jog! My Saturday morning rituals always start with drinking a huge glass of water and adding coconut MCT oils to my matcha tea to give me energy for the day!

Sunday run or relax?

Both! Run, then relax.

Go-to Beauty Routine and favorite brands?

I love to keep my skin moisturized as much as possible by drinking lots of water to stay hydrated and adding organic face oils to my skin creams. I’m currently obsessed with all of SkinCeuticals products! Also, I think it is important to use makeup that is good for your skin too. Hourglass Cosmetics and Bite lip colors are my favorite!

Travel essentials for a weekend getaway and favorite brands?

When I’m traveling I try to always remember to bring: Sunscreen by Avene, lip balm from Burt’s Bees, energy/hydration drink from Weekday Warriors, my Monet phone card holder and my carry-on Hershel bag!

A cherished memory since you started modeling?

I can never forget the time I got to travel and shoot in Guatemala. While I was there, I met and spent time with the families and children that lived on the streets. They were so happy and full of life– and a huge inspiration to me!

As a Millennial what are your favorite apps, and how do you like to use social media?

Some of my apps you will always find open on my phone are: Instagram, Snapchat, Whatsapp, Spotify, Audible, Uber, and Postmates! Social media is a way for me to stay connected with friends and share with them my everyday passions and adventures!
