Artistic Icon with Paula Goldstein
Upon meeting Paula Goldstein Di Principe, it’s very hard not to be intimated; she’s brilliant, gorgeous, well-traveled, and effortlessly cool. Oh and she’s also the newly named fashion director of Refinery 29. Thankfully, she’s also a dream, as we learned recently when sitting down with the founder of Voyage D’Etudes herself. She graciously answered our every inquiry while we watched in awe as she brought our CFDA partnership and collaboration with Domingo Zapata, to life!

A proper english Sunday Roast - if you haven't tried a Yorkshire Pudding you haven't lived.

Chocolate-covered almonds though I'm scared to eat them now in case they are causing the drought.
