First thing you did this morning? Watched the rising sun filter through the trees outside my bedroom window, resisted the temptation to reach for my phone...

What does 'wellness' mean to you? A healthy state of self awareness, knowing yourself. 

Products found in your shower/by your bath? l'Officine Universelle Buly orange blossom oil (orange blossom is my most treasured scent) Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre, Peet Rivko cleanser and LESSE face oil.

Three things that can always be found in your kitchen cupboard? Lemons, sea salt and a good mezcal.  

Favourite kitchen utensil? A citrus juicer from Mexico, a cast iron skillet from Woodstock.

Favourite Travel destination? Anywhere that involves horses, most recently Zapata Ranch in Colorado. Being around horses is better than any drink, drug or therapist I’ve tried. 

Currently reading? Devotion by Patti Smith 

Currently browsing (.com)?
The Moon Lists, The Cut, horoscopes by Jessica Lanyadoo.

Favourite breakfast food? Hot chai (I make my own from a recipe I discovered in India) and a banana.  

Three items in your make up bag? By Terry Cellularose Brightening CC Serum (this stuff works legit miracles) an old NARS blush and concealer that needs replacing. I’m not much of a makeup gal! 

An album/mix that calms your nervous system? Girl From the North Country by Bob Dylan.  

An album/mix that hypes you up? Florence + The Machine when I run / do yoga.

Most commonly used apps on your phone?
Instagram, Podcasts and google docs


Favourite form of movement/exercise?
Hot yoga, specifically, One Hot Yoga, I love that place.

One thing you'd like to incorporate into your day/week that you're currently yet to? I have two. Consistent morning meditation and morning pages—three pages of longhand, stream of consciousness writing, done first thing in the morning. I know both are game changers for me, yet I’ll always find an excuse not to. I’m like, who am I fooling here?! 

Nighttime rituals? Cleanse and moisturise, no matter what. 

I feel most creatively fulfilled when…
Travelling
Learning
Making photographs
Around strong inspiring women
Collaborating with and connecting people I love and watching amazing things happen.

I'm currently working on…
Finding balance as I experience significant family loss and simultaneously flow with the momentum of good work opportunities—it’s a challenging season of my life and I’m learning as I go. 

This time last year, I wish I knew…
How powerful and resilient I am. 
Be patient with uncomfortable feelings and emotions, because they will pass. 
Trying to prove myself to others is exhausting and unnecessary (still work in progress on that one!). 

I'm grateful for…
The full and textured life I have lived so far, the women that lift me up each day, the people I have known loved and lost who taught me so much. My family.
