Favorite way to spend a weekend?
My favorite weekends are slow and relaxed, with a balance of work and time with friends. I love to wake up early, make a big cup of coffee and settle into some painting. The perfect break from that is to meet up with a friend for a long walk around the neighborhood and window shop (I do not need any more plants or cute little bowls that can only fit like four grapes and somehow I always forget that).
Do you prefer online shopping or in-store?
In-store! I’m a very tactile person.
What subject were you good at in school?
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Favorite perfume? (If you wear it).
Antidris Cassis by Maison Louise Marie -- for special occasions. Otherwise, just deodorant for me (if I remember to put it on).
Last time you put your toes in the sand?
A trip Puerto Rico with my mom two years ago.
Opinion on bath bombs?
I’ve never actually tried one!
Favorite place to get brunch (and what do you order?)
Cafe Mogador. I order the Country eggs: two eggs (scrambled), served with labne (this is where I come in with the Lactaid pills), arabic salad, and zhatar pita.
Which celebrity would you want to have dinner with, and why?
Maira Kalman. My all-time favorite author and illustrator. Her work has always inspired me, and I’m slowly working up a collection of all her gorgeous, smart, and hilarious books. I would love so much to pick her brain -- and meet her adorable dog.
