When it comes to wellness, I believe in everything in moderation. I don't smoke and don't drink in excess, and in the mornings I typically choose tea over coffee. My favorite is English breakfast tea, which I developed a love for during my time living in London. Mariage Freres makes my favorite version. It's the perfect way to start the day.


As for exercise - for me, it's all about biking. You can often find me riding on Velib, the public bike sharing system in Paris. It's the easiest way to get around the city, and definitely beats sitting in traffic. Here I am biking with my friend, Pippa Middleton, who is wearing a pair of Chatelles. This photo encompasses my inspiration behind Chatelles - to create a collection of shoes for women that are not only comfortable, but also classically chic.

As for my regime, my favorite shampoo is the Amino Acid Shampoo by Kiehl's — you'll be charmed by its coco smell.

My signature scent is Bois d’Argent by Christian Dior, refined and modern; this is one of my favorite fragrances.
