The book that changed my life...

The World According to Garp by John Irving. I read this book in high school, and it introduced me to so many ideas about feminism and identity. It also planted me solidly in the John Irving fan club.

The morning and nighttime routines I swear by...  

Morning: I walk straight to my French press coffee maker every morning so I can smell the fresh grounds brewing as I get ready. I like to wake up early enough to slowly sip and savour my morning cup.

Nighttime: One word: lavender. Before bed I lather on vanilla lavender lotion and apply lavender essential oil to my temples to relax and unwind after a long day.

The best décor hack I've learned...

Keep it simple. When I’m feeling uninspired by my current home décor, I’ll simply rearrange the furniture or make an easy upgrade, like replacing my bedding.

My interior stylist spirit animal is...

Justina Blakeney. I love the way she embraces patterns and color.

The Instagram handles I follow religiously are... 

@theskimm to keep me informed, @manrepeller for my fashion fix and @yoga_girl to remind me to slow down and take time for myself.

This season, my go-to cocktail order is... 

A cucumber basil martini. It’s light, refreshing and tastes like summer.

The first lesson I learned as an Adult with a capital A... 

My first summer living in LA taught me that there is no magic formula for success or happiness. I had to figure out what people and activities made me feel good and try my hardest not to let them go, and I’m still working on this today.

The most surprising thing I learned from a MyDomaine story is...

Even I can become a millionaire. It's not as unattainable as it seems!
