Q. What's your ideal summer destination for 2018?
I have been dying to go to Italy. I just found out one of my ancestors is a renowned sculptor with pieces throughout Italy, so I’ve really been wanting to explore that part of my heritage. I’ll probably be spending a lot of time in the parks in London and NYC, but I’m always a huge fan of a lake and a nice fire pit somewhere rural.
Q. How do you take care of your skin and hair during summertime?
When it comes to my skin and hair in the summer I have one word for you, protection. One of my favorite sunscreen brands is CoTz, they have a beautiful almost mousse textured sunscreen that doesn’t irritate my skin like a lot of sunscreens can. As for hair I like to use a UV spray, like Bumble and Bumble's Hairdresser's invisible oil primer, to help protect from sun damage. My go-to look is dewy skin, rosy cheeks, and fluffy brows.

Q. What are you going to pack in your suitcase this season?
My kindle. I travel a lot which can end up being stressful with delays and missed flights, so it’s nice to be able to escape into a book. Swimwear wise, I just came back from a Holiday with Zimmermann, and I have to say they have always been one of my favorites for one-of-a-kind resort wear and swim. I also love Bamba Swim, because their fit is very flattering for someone who is not so curvy.
Q. Three songs on your beach playlist.
Wait a Minute - Willow
Algo - Omar Apollo
Daughter of a Cop - Tv Girl
Q. How do you live a more eco-conscious life this summer?
A lot of places I’ve been traveling to have either banned plastic bags or you have to pay extra for a bag. It’s inspired me to always carry a thin canvas tote with me everywhere to try to cut down on plastic.
