What do you first notice about a guy’s look?

How he carries himself.

What’s the best thing a guy can do for his skin / hair?

Keep it simple. Nothing wrong with a basic skincare routine or finding a barber you like.

What’s the worst?


What’s the best gift you’ve gotten from a guy?

For Christmas this past year my boyfriend got us tickets to see The Nutcracker. It was such a thoughtful gift because he knew I’d been a ballerina growing up and it would be his first time seeing a ballet. Sharing that experience with him was very special and I smile every time I think about it.

What’s the best gift you’ve given a guy?

For my boyfriend’s birthday I got us a helicopter tour of New York. Throughout our long distance relationship (NY ⟷ LA) we’ve shared a lot of wonderful experiences together and he was just starting to talk about moving to the West Coast. I thought it would be a one of a kind experience for us to share and a way for him to see the city he loved in a new way.

What’s one thing you wish guys understood about women?

You can’t blame everything on our ovaries and a lot of the time we have very different ideas of what “natural makeup” looks like.

How important is…

his place?

his job?

his fitness level?

his ability to cook?

I think it’s important to find a passion and a balance. A passion because whether it’s your job, hobby or home, seeing someone live what they love can be so contagious and I love that. Finding a balance so you can do what you love and live a comfortable life. Also it doesn’t hurt to do some fitness or have the ability to make a killer grilled cheese.
