7:30 a.m. Up and at ’em (sort of). Lay in bed for a moment, think about the day ahead of me. Open the windows, front door and let the sun and cool breeze pour through the bungalow.

7:45 a.m. Boil water for my morning tea and oatmeal. Turn on the computer, freshen up with my favorite products REN and Ole Henriksen, then back to the computer. I put on my morning melodies playlist or kcrw depending on my mood.

8:00 a.m. Check emails and work on whatever needs to be done: researching, designing, assembling, costing, packing, shipping… It’s a one wo(man) show my friends.

10 a.m. Get dressed. Grab my tea, notebook, hop on my bike and head down to the beach to take a break from the computer and pliers.

10:15 a.m. Park my bike and walk down to the beach. There I like to outline my week and brainstorm color stories, campaign ideas, design direction, etc.

11-12:30 a.m. Since it’s Sunday, I head over to the farmer’s market nearby to gather produce for the week and fixings for drinks and snacks with my buddies. Oh, and some flowers.

1 p.m. Head home and enjoy the rest of the day with my beautiful friends
