Video Producer & Lifestyle Host, Try Living with Lucie & Refinery 29
New York, NY
RIGHT NOW: WHERE ARE YOU, WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON, AND WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE ITEM YOU’RE WEARING?
I’m at my desk at Refinery29, I’m sending out notes on a recent cut of Try Living with Lucie, and I’m wearing my new favorite slip-on shoes from Under Armour Sports.
SUM UP YOUR STYLE IN ONE SENTENCE.
I am a lover of prints, color and graphic tees!
WHAT INSPIRES YOU ABOUT THE WORK YOU DO?
I love hearing from young women all over the world who tell me that my videos have inspired them to try something new or expand their horizons in some way!
HOW DO YOU LIVE ‘MINDFULLY?’
I am always striving to live in the present moment, but I also like to take a step back and view my life from a wider lens. I like to look at trivial, day-to-day problems from a distance and recognize how unimportant they are in the scheme of things.
WHAT’S THE FIRST THING YOU DO WHEN YOU WAKE UP?
I open my window shade! #NATURALLIGHT
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE YOU TO GET READY IN THE MORNING?
About 25-30 minutes!
WHAT’S YOUR GO-TO WORKOUT?
WHAT DO YOU DO TO KEEP YOUR LIFE (AND CLOSET!) A LEAN, MEAN, CLUTTER-FREE MACHINE?
I try to filter through my clothes every couple of months. Sometimes I donate things and other times I bring them to The Buffalo Exchange and swap them out for something else!
YOU’RE A BUSY BABE. HOW DO YOU BALANCE WORK, HEALTH, AND YOUR RELATIONSHIPS?
I make plans in advance!! It’s so easy to be tired after a long day of work, but if I have a plan to get dinner with a friend or a reservation at a workout class, it’s a lot easier to stick with it!
WHAT PODCASTS OR BLOGS DO YOU KEEP UP WITH?
I love looking at Rawvana’s recipes!
WHO DO YOU ADMIRE?
I admire a ton of creative people (a lot of them who I’ve met through Instagram). Anyone who can take a social media platform and turn it into a full time job has my utmost respect.
FAVORITE SPOTS FOR A HEALTHY MEAL?
WHITE HOT LIGHTENING ROUND– GO!
HEELS OR FLATS? Flats
BUSINESS OR CASUAL? Casual
EARLY MORNINGS OR LATE NIGHTS? Late night
NEW YORK OR LA? NY
COFFEE, TEA, OR MATCHA? Coffee!
COMPLETE THIS SENTENCE: LIVING INTENTIONALLY MEANS… paring down, breathing deeply and enjoying the moment.
