Time can be so precious, yet completely relative. When I'm working, time can be felt down to the minutes. But when I'm with my husband or my family or friends, time is nonexistent.
My latest discovery is this beautiful French apothecary beauty shop in Paris called Buly 1803. It is such a candy store for those who are obsessed with beauty and romance! Everything is completely natural and high-quality.
My morning routine starts with a hot cup of jasmine tea. The warmth, the fresh fragrance, and the taste is just the simplest indulgence I look forward to every morning. I have to have all the windows open to let the morning light through. I always prep my skin in the morning with a mask and massage. Before I sit down to work, I have to have my green smoothie loaded with antioxidants and matcha.
My favorite place in NYC is West Village. My husband and I fell in love with the neighborhood a few years ago because it is such a charming escape from the bustling city. We have a tradition whenever we visit NYC - we do date night on the last night of our trip and we always visit this little French restaurant called Cafe Cluny for drinks before dinner somewhere. I remember the first time we ever stopped into cafe Cluny was during one of the worst winter blizzards and we jetted into the store for relief and discovered the best Hot Toddys in the city!
visit the farmers market to buy next week's groceries and fresh flowers and I prep my week's fresh almond milk. I spend at most two hours doing a bit of work to prepare for the week ahead but most of all, Kyle and I take Sundays as a day of rest and you'll most likely find us in bed with food delivered by Postmates and Netflix or HBO.
My best memory is of the time my husband took me to Sedona, Arizona for the first time in the beginning of our relationship. It was near midnight, I looked up to the sky, and I had never seen so many stars surround me in all of my life. It was such a beautiful moment that actually inspired our desire to travel the world together and discover more moments like this one.
I'm unfortunately always late because I'm the worst at estimating the time it takes to get ready and travel to wherever I need to go. I also grew up with being fashionably late because of my mom.
My favorite Rosefield timepiece is the Upper East Side, because I love wearing a watch that looks like beautiful jewelry. You can keep this on for day-to-day or a special evening occasion.

Gold - it's a beautiful tone with so much cultural significance and it really just goes best wth my skin tone. But actually, i would say both since I love to mix metals in my jewelry and accessories.
I would teleport to the rolling hills of the French countryside. It’s my most favorite place in the world and whenever I visit, I come back feeling so inspired and renewed.
Most people don’t know that I’m addicted to pasta. It’s my total weakness and I can have it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
My mother is my biggest inspiration. Her perseverance, dedication, and elegance are what I admire most and it’s what has made everything in life great for my family and me. I try to pursue those qualities as much as possible in my life and I hope to pass those on to my daughters.
Will be living in the French countryside with my family and taking up more of art in photography and videography. I love to tell stories and I hope to continue to do that in a whole new scenery.
