Of her time jet-lagged
and I’ll split apart. It’s the biblical story about how they [threatened to] split the baby in half because they couldn’t decide whose it was. I feel like real life is like that. 11.30AM When I can I go to Jack’s Wife Freda or to the Smile and get scrambled eggs with cheese and avocado. In New York, I’ll take cabs, Uber, the subway, or when we’re going to a number of different things around the city, I get on the back of my assistant’s Vespa. 1.30PM Realistically, I’m a journalist, but I want to do TV again. Someone said to me the other day: “Name someone who excelled in more than one arena. Alexa, you need to focus on one thing because you can’t succeed if you do it simultaneously.” I won’t allow people to limit what I do. In the afternoon, I might go back home and do some work. My assistant sends e-mails that say, “from the office of Alexa Chung” but my office is essentially my bed. That sounds really unprofessional, but it’s usually just us two in bed cranking out e-mails. I go on Astrology Zone once a month, and I love the Secret Language of Birthdays. You put in your birthday and it comes back with a survey of people born on that
day and their attributes – it’s so spot-on, it’s insane. I’m a Scorpio and from the Week of Depth. I think it just means that I overthink things, and I’m reflective and dark. 7PM My friend Tennessee Thomas has a shop called the Deep End Club in the East Village, so if I’ve finished my work I’ll stop by. I’ll likely be hungry at that point, so I’ll pick up a cappuccino and a sandwich from across the road and take it in. I have a close group of friends, and if I invite one somewhere, I know that they’ll invite the rest. I’m out every night with them – I don’t like doing it for work. Half my life is spent at a dive bar and half is spent at, perhaps a Valentino dinner. Usually I’m lamenting that my shoes are ill-fitting. Last night I went to karaoke, but I can’t talk about it anymore because I’ve become like a caricature. I went a number of times a week for about a year. When I like something I become obsessed with it, even, say, string cheese. Right now it’s Lindt chocolate balls. 1AM I come home, get some water, wash my face and brush my teeth, get into bed, and fall asleep. I always sleep naked. I’d like to be in bed with a boy at 10 pm, but unfortunately, that’s not what happens.
