On indoor plants: I get fresh eucalyptus every week. Even though you can’t feel it, there’s something about it that feels very natural – and I love it. I [also] have eucalyptus oil in the shower, so if I take a steam, I’ll add a few drops to the water.
Feeling good: I always layer and create really unique scents by putting oils and then perfume. I’ve been wearing the same perfume for three years now and that’s where the inspiration for my CeCe perfume came from.
People comment on how my perfume combination smells all the time. When I made the meeting of Friends, I walked in and a few people gave me a hug. The first thing they said was ‘Oh, you smell good.’ I know what I’m doing when it comes to this.
On childhood memories: Growing up in the South, my dad used to make these burger sandwiches in the morning. And, I don’t even eat pork anymore, but I used to eat pork chops over rice pilaf with a slice of tomato and onion on top. I would come home and it would be in a big iron skillet. And I thought, ‘This smells so good.’ We would have fried chicken every Friday. I love all these smells. I love southern cuisine.
On its beach waves: When I was a child, I had very long, straight hair. And then something happened. When I was growing up – I guess it was hormones or whatever – I had waves. So I have a layered haircut. I get out of the shower and I don’t brush it. Sometimes I brush it in the shower to get the tangles out, but then I scrunch it up and let it air dry.
Then I do nothing. And I don’t even know how to do it. If someone gave me a curling iron right now, I’d look ridiculous. And I don’t dry my hair because it takes too much effort. If there’s frizz, that’s when I put LolaVie Perfecting Leave-In on the ends. It really works. Not just because [Jennifer Aniston] is my friend.
On minimalism: My philosophy is less is more. The less makeup I wear, the better off I look. Eyebrows are important. They frame your face. I microblade mine. I don’t like doing it and hate how it sounds, but I think the results are great.
