“In LA, we have juice bars everywhere, but New Yorkers don’t get that experience. The closest thing is Juice Generation. I love their Green Machine juice, and they have these acai bowls, a whole bowl of vegan, dairy-free food for breakfast. It’s so delicious. They have cold busters, and I swear they work! Whenever I feel a cold coming on, I grab these cayenne-ginger situations.”
“I am currently decorating my new apartment, and a friend introduced me to HomeGoods. They don’t have a specific collection, and every store varies. So it’s like a treasure chest! The store literally has everything, from amazing cookie jars to coffee tables. Just really fun house stuff: great end tables, little frames, throw pillows. It’s so much fun walking around that store, and it’s totally affordable.”
The Gospel According to Coco Chanel: Life Lessons from the World’s Most Elegant Woman
“I went to Barnes and Noble to stock up, and now am reading The Gospel According to Coco Chanel. It’s all of her rules, like ‘I don’t care what you think about me. I don’t think about you at all.’ All those quotes that people say on Instagram all day long? They come from her! She says to live off passion. It’s so good and fun to read about her life. And her favorite aunt was named Adrienne! I loved that, too, of course.”
Scott Barnes for Flutter Lashes
“Everyone knows that JLo put mink lashes on the map, and her makeup artist Scott Barnes is known for giving her that JLo glow. Now Scott has come out with his own lashes. They look like the ones that JLo wore for the Oscars. His own line is for flutter.com, and they are to die for. Most of the time, my artists use strip lashes, and then add longer and shorter individual ones on top, for a different dimensions. Scott’s already come like that! Genius.”
James Taylor’s Greatest Hits
“I just got the entire collection of James Taylor. I’m currently obsessed! I like to find out what the song was about. I’m weird like that! ‘Fire and Rain’ is really sad. The first verse is about his friend was throwing him a surprise party, and they flew out a girl he liked and then she died in a plane crash! Can you imagine? The first verse goes, ‘Suzanne, the plans they made put an end to you.” So sad. But James Taylor’s records feel like summer to me.”
