my happy place: my apart­ment in Brook­lyn. It has a re­ally warm en­ergy. I love sit­ting in my rock­ing chair to watch the sun go down. Fave insta ac­count: @kay­mon­tano. she’s a makeup artist who posts in­cred­i­ble im­ages of peo­ple of note from days gone by. i have a real weak­ness for: Pota­toes. French fries, potato chips, mashed pota­toes… I just re­ally like pota­toes. my best trait: I ap­proach things in a child­like way, and I try not to take my­self too se­ri­ously. one thing i have to do every day: make my bed in the morn­ing. If I don’t, I’ll make it right be­fore I get into it. It’s ac­tu­ally a good thing … un­til you pull peo­ple out of bed to do it. Pet peeve: When peo­ple dance around a sub­ject rather than get­ting to the point. my cur­rent #WCW is: sarah Paul­son. I love her hon­esty and bois­ter­ous­ness. she’s just dope. it’s tough for me to re­sist some­one who: Has a beard. Some­thing that makes me feel ex­tra sexy: mas­cara. my go-to is Lancôme’s Grandiôse – it has a funky-shaped brush that makes ap­pli­ca­tion eas­ier. every­one in their 20s should: Do sit-ups! It’ll tighten you up for a much looser fu­ture. my mantra: Do one thing every day that scares you. ■
