Q: How long have you been in Los Angeles?

A: I’ve lived in LA for about six years.

Q: What’s something most people don’t know about you?

A: Fun fact about myself, I can turn the shower on with my feet.

Q: How long have you been acting? What do you love most about it?

A: I have been working as an actress since I was a kid. I actually just had a film come out set in the 1950s, which is great because I love all things vintage. But the best part about being an actress, is getting to become a lot of different people. I mean, I have worn a lot of different hats.

Q: What are your essential tools when prepping for a role?

A: A cup of coffee (needed), a highlighter, and whatever script I’m currently working on.

Q: What’s your favorite room in your house?

A: My favorite part of the house is definitely the cloffice (closet-office). It’s definitely my happy place in the house because it’s where I get to work on my other job of being a blogger. It’s where I style looks, create content, and do what I call “research,” a.k.a. reading magazines.

Q: Since you work from home a lot of the time, how do you instill work/life balance in your space?

A: After a long day of learning lines and writing blog posts, I like to relax in my living room. For me, it’s all about unwinding and setting the mood. The Glade® Essentials Room Mist is my go-to—I love the Mandarin & Mimosa scent. It helps clear my mind and let me know work is done for the day.

The best part about being a blogger is getting to connect with women from all over the world.

Q: Who is your style icon?

A: 100 percent Alexa Chung.

Q: What’s the best part about being a blogger?

A: The best part about being a blogger is getting to connect with women from all over the world. Second best part? Creating content.
