Q: Why don’t you tell us a little bit about yourself?
A: I’m a Carolina girl living in NYC, lover of the fashion/beauty industry & a total product addict. I adore the great outdoors, and have a passion for travel and new adventures, as well as socializing and I’m a HUGE family person—being Italian may have a little bit to do with that.

A: I wouldn’t be able to get through a work day without my LUSH desk arsenal! Especially during the winter months, I am constantly moisturizing my hands, a ridiculous amount! Tiny Hands & Handy Gurugu are my absolute favorites to keep my hands from looking ashy and feeling dry. I get VERY dry in the winter. Also, my go-to toner water, Eau Roma Water is a must-have mid-day refresher! Not to mention Honey Trap, a classic lip balm, perfect for everyone. But it doesn’t stop there…being in beauty PR we have lots of events, networking opportunities and meetings with editors. That being said, I am often in need of products to spruce up before a work happy hour, meeting, or just a night out with friends.
