Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Don't sweat the small stuff!" I'm also a fan of: "Do crazy things with your hair while you still have hair to do it with."

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. If Martha Stewart could take a long vacation and I could move into her perfect farmhouse in Bedford, NY (complete with miniature horses and donkeys!) that would be great.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. The women I really admire are the ones who are working two jobs, supporting their families, raising their kids and remembering to brush their hair on top of it.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I try to always see the glass half full.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Perfect happiness is feeling healthy, loved, inspired, free and with a plane ticket to an exotic locale in my hand! Throw in side-splitting laughter, friends and family, key lime pie, a 99.9 percent discount at Chanel and a sidewalk cafe in Paris and I may never leave.
