My office is definitely an extension of my personality. I spend more time here than anywhere else, so it's important that it reflects my style and that it's an inspiring place to think - although it's admittedly impossible to keep clean with a gazillion beauty products coming in and out all the time.

It was so fun to see my hair all brushed out - it looked like caramel-flavored cotton candy!
The thing about spending a lifetime under a long, bushy cloud of curls is that people naturally began associating me with my hair.
Nothing is as exciting - or as nerve-wracking - as being the new girl. Whether it's your first day of school or you're starting a dream job, if there's one thing that makes a first impression a lot less daunting, it's a really, really good hair day.
Beyonce's music is like lipstick or a decidedly tall pair of heels: It's empowering.
I don't believe in work-life balance. I think it's more about work-life integration because, increasingly, so much time of ours is spent doing work, so I've always wanted to dedicate my work life to having a social impact.
As it's related to publishing, I think magazines really benefit from having a staff with a range of different perspectives and cultural references so that any reader can feel like there is someone on the masthead they can relate to, someone they can trust to speak up for them.
