What TV show are you currently loving?

I just finished Handmaid’s Tale. AMAZING!

How do you like to unwind after a long day?

My favorite part of the evening begins with a warm shower or bath, getting into my pajamas, and having a cup of tea. Then I pick a TV show or a book to chill out with.

What is your favorite exercise move?

I hate working out, but I love dancing. I started dancing when I was 3 years old and have been in love with it ever since. Now, I take a hip hop drop-in class at one of the many dance studios in Manhattan.

What is your favorite thing to order when you are at a café or restaurant?

Eating out when you live in Manhattan is really expensive, so since I have a full kitchen, I much rather prefer to cook. My favorite thing to cook right now are tostones.

Guilty pleasure at the moment?

Blue Diamond Almonds. My favorite flavor at the moment is Honey Roasted Chipotle. Sooooooo good!

The phone app that you can’t live without?

Tibetan Bowls Meditation – It’s free, but for less than $5 you can unlock all the features. It allows me to customize the bowl sound, music, and special effects (I’m a big fan of rain noises.) I use it every night to fall asleep.
