What brought you to NYC?

I lived most of my life in California and wanted to experience something completely different so I chose New York. I was living in LA for almost 6 years before deciding to move a month prior to when I did and I love it more every day. I moved a couple months before winter so it took me a few months to adjust, but I love summer in New York. It’s been one of the best. 
I love using a jade ball roller followed by rose water. I’m obsessed with skin care and my favorite skincare line is Innisfree! Can’t say I have a weird hack but I love putting cold things on my skin. It feels so refreshing.

What do you do for a living?

I work for the brand Orseund Iris! It’s been such an amazing experience to be part of the team. I love and believe in the brand so much. My dream career would be to own a restaurant of my own. 

What is the story behind those awesome bangs?

When I was in first grade, I cut bangs on myself for a special occasion thinking they would grow back overnight. I hadn’t had bangs (again) until about two and a half years ago. I wanted to do something completely new because — as we all do — I get bored with my hair easily. I’ve grown them back out and cut them again a few times, but this last time I decided the bangs are staying. They complete my look. I trim/cut my own bangs, so they switch up from time to time. 

What is something your online followers don’t know about you?

Some may know this because I recently created an IG for it, but I absolutely love to cook. It’s my favorite thing to do with friends or by myself. It’s therapeutic for me and I totally geek out over cookbooks and trying to cook new things. I use recipes as guidelines, but never hesitate to add a couple bonus ingredients to make it my own.
