First thing af­ter I wake up I use Post­mates to or­der a chai vanilla latte with al­mond milk from Al­fred’s cof­fee shop [in Los An­ge­les], and then check my email. The last thing I do be­fore I go to sleep is make a to-do list for the fol­low­ing day, to send to my team and my hus­band. If I don’t do this, I can­not sleep.

I would go to the Fash­ion Gone Rogue web­site re­li­giously to get in­spi­ra­tion, back when I used to up­date my blog on a daily ba­sis. The site has changed a lot since then, and now I have three kids it is hard for me to even get on a com­puter some days. But I do still check in and go to their ed­i­to­rial sec­tion. I am more about images [than words], so I love to see pho­tos and see what is new.

Mal­ibu Cafe at Calami­gos Ranch in Mal­ibu is one of my favourite places to take my fam­ily. It has a ro­man­tic el­e­ment, de­li­cious food, mu­sic, pad­dle boats and a pond with ducks. It also has a fun el­e­ment, with charm­ing out­side seat­ing and tonnes of games in­clud­ing pool ta­bles, life-size chess boards, Con­nect Four and Jenga. I usu­ally take fam­ily and friends there when they are vis­it­ing from out of town.

I have been go­ing to Nurse Jamie [in LA] for a cou­ple of years now for fa­cials, and she in­tro­duced me to the Nurse Jamie Up­lift Fa­cial Mas­sag­ing Beauty Roller. I use it right be­fore I go to bed to mas­sage my face or when­ever I feel swollen and puffy.

Spanx has amaz­ing ac­tive and work­out gear. I’m ob­sessed with the ac­tive leg­gings, with a dou­ble-layer waist­band. They are light but smooth out ev­ery­thing.

I have worked with a lot of amaz­ing jew­ellery de­sign­ers. I love and adore Drew from Dy­lan­lex. She knows how to de­sign state­ment pieces, and I of­ten look to her for in­spi­ra­tion on her In­sta­gram page. For red car­pet events I usu­ally call my friend Lor­raine Schwartz, she al­ways has the most beau­ti­ful di­a­monds and can de­sign any­thing you need based on what your client is wear­ing. For ev­ery­day jew­ellery, I usu­ally wear Sarah Chloe and Jac­quie Aiche.

Norma Ka­mali one-piece swim­suits are my go-to swim­suits for my­self and clients. I own a few! They have very flat­ter­ing cuts for ev­ery body type and are made with smooth swim jersey.

When on-the-go, Mario Bade­scu Fa­cial Spray with aloe, herbs and rose­wa­ter is great. I also like to carry 2XU com­pres­sion socks, hand sani­tiser, La Mer lip balm and a Korean sheet mask.
