I dialed it back. I think i'm falling. Maybe two or three people now clubs at the beginning. I was just like i'll give me but then that's not sustainable. No but i think it adds up. This is not a rabbit hole. Really it makes porn look like steven spielberg production. Like yes you know. It is the most like it's so like it. How would you describe it. Like it's like the angles and like the everyone has a high def camera right in their hand in their pocket and people have really learned how to use them is they have And certainly in quarantine people have had plenty of time and they've also perfected how to give good before. I don't know it's it's like kind of blown my mind and it's like the only place that go for porno. It feels a little voyeuristic. Which i like. But they're in on it so you don't have to feel bad but it doesn't yeah. It doesn't feel like a production. Feels like sex youtubers. Yeah but they're making like people are making a ton of money on there and like becoming like this one guy. I think i don't know what they're called performer. I guess on onlyfans I've seen. I've watched his journey on his only fans and also like his real instagram account. And it's like. I just moved into a new apartment. Like it's very clear it's like you that yeah exactly i love the we we we had sort of like button things up with this beautiful story about your wedding and then it was like oh coda. Let's let's discuss. Let's get into high end amateur porn medium. It's interesting you know the thing that's going to happen to the like the porn industry is dead. Obviously there was like x. tube and all that sort of stuff but now people are monitored like people again. Everyone has a high def camera and like a fry especially in la like a friend who knows how to take a good video or anything. We're industry is evolving. I guess porno through is evolving. And it's not it's it's all body types at age groups and you know it's not strictly young hairless guys with house. John gordon stereotypical bear thing. It's like there's a spectrum and it's just kind of regular people living their lives. Yeah it's like there's something for everyone. My mom says like every pot has its lit right or something like that right. Yeah i like i'm i to. You'll have with your husband. Yes we have been known to watch it together I mean like we just also like now that we're married and have a kid like are there's a bit there's a lot more transparency in our finances and So like i think. My spending is under a microscope. In a way that it hadn't been. And you know as dave alluded to it can add up you you can be. It can be anywhere from like seven ninety nine a month to twenty dollars a month and then if you want like and then they'll like. Dm you there's like a dm function like so that the performance that you're following will like send you a special video that you have to unlock for like and people you can charge whatever you want. So it's like fifty dollars for like a photo of like Like a hot guy like after the shower or something. I don't know anyway. I didn't buy that stuff. Yeah it's you can spend a lotta time and a lot of money. He's a lot of money any any names and he users jump out hot. Dacians racking shabas. I don't he is i. He must be. He must be the top performer. The mail like gay male performer. But he is a great place to start is he is seemingly like kind of like he'll introduce a lot of new performers and then kind of shout them out onto the like it's a. It's it's instagram for sex work really. We're like you can shout out other performers. Do a scene with him and then he'll help promote you onto another onto your platform and then you can sort of take that audience and run with it. Yeah yeah wow wow. Wow nick thank you so much.

"What was the program or do you. So it was a it was a psychiatrist Like you know columbia or cornell or whatever near hospital faculty psychiatrist who had practice with a children's play therapist and so the parents would see the psychiatrist. The freudian analyst essentially it was all based on freud and then the kid would see the play therapist. And i have like a few know before i came out of the closet when i was twenty one. This was like my deepest darkest secret right because it would be like the the sort of thing that would that would give me all the way but my so i think i like probably destroyed a lot of the evidence but i do have a few books that i made with the play therapist and There it's really interesting because in seventy five percent of the books are like i went. I went on a trip to boston. And i went to oberlin. Pan and like you know. I had a i really liked it. And then like the twenty. Five percent of the book is like when my dad goes on business trips i liked to dress in girl clothes or it was likes them trying to connect these dots of like when i felt abandoned by my dad i would like gravitate towards these feminine behaviors or perceived feminine behaviors. So like there was this it was it was super fucked up but my grandma always kind of like in a way. She always sort of like saw through it. I think with me And so when we were having a baby. I was like i really want and she died. She was ninety three when she died. So she was still like a big part of my life through my twenties So i wanted to like i. I also felt like yeah. This is also kind of what life is about as like keeping someone alive like you know. Evie still exists. She just like is in this baby form. That's my that's my mom's name by the way it's really yeah and it's funny. I also was in therapy for exhibiting feminine behavior around the age of four. But maybe a couple sessions. I ohio small town ohio very rural town. No i wish but my mom. But my evelyn was also kind of saw through it. And didn't you know. I think went through the motions a couple times of like if i think that i think both parents took me but i don't really remember it and i don't even know if my mom remembers that it happened because she remembers it you know. Even just two days ago she was like oh. I found this picture of you and your dorothy dress at your fifth birthday party and i always just let you be whoever you wanted to be. You know it's like she did but there was a moment but anyway all that because years of doing this must have been something. You had to really unpack later. Yeah i think. I just stopped unpacking it even during quarantine i think i got to the point where i had like talked talked about it and talked it out so much. You know with through therapy. That i was like okay. I get it. You know like. I've i've raped my parents over the coals. It's not really because i really close to them. They're amazing and they made a mistake and they were young parents and it was time and they were like four and my dad also explained it an interesting way that like before prozac was like the most high tech you know treatment for any kind of perceived mental illness or psychiatric disorder was analysis so like they kind of thought like okay like our kid is like doing something. That's not typical. And you know we'll find the best expert to deal with. It turned out that expert was like a horrible Conversion therapist who had an obituary in the times that did not mention any of this. And so like i. I've always wanted to do a podcast or like at this american life story about like the fact that this woman was like a very prominent psychiatrist in the eighties and early nineties and like never had to wreck you know. There was no reckoning down. There should be. I just didn't work so she's not that good that's right. That's the best part of the story. I'll such a super sized episode. But it's just so so good talking to you. But i do have to ask how you met your husband. We met at a birthday party. We both had boyfriends And then we followed each other on instagram. And then we when we didn't have boyfriends it was sort of like hey like what are you doing one. Hang out and that was like nine eight nine years ago. I think now we have a baby. At how long until you got married we got married a year and a little bit ago so right before covid and wedding or what. What did you do. We had one hundred people and it was. It was really fun. It was like one of the best days ever did exactly the way that we wanted to do it. and we we. We like had been you know like we had rings that we had gotten when i moved to la and he was staying in new york that we're like you know jonas brother promise rings But so we kind of had like that kind of commitment Before that but then again. Like i get really sappy. I'm like i'm the. I'm the worst except for like these funny life moments where i get very like woo. Woo where i was like. You know we're entering into this like we're this not the covenant necessarily but just like the tradition that like cultures have done for so long. This like you know uniting of two people in front of friends and family like felt very cool It's also funny like even like in terms of like my gay friends. They're sort of like to. I've met the age where there's like kind of two paths that like everyone's either people are kind of going on this family. This hetero normative. I guess you know path of having wedding and family and that or they're going on like the very glamorous but totally different path of like having a fabulous house you know in the fire island or you know the north fork and you know having a lot of sex talk about one more thing before..

"Truly makes it really makes us subtle but undeniable difference and do you feel that the words that you're writing or like the content that you're producing which still feels funny to say that it's good stuff it's good or like people say like oh. I took adderall once. And then i looked at what i wrote and it was like you know horrible and i was like talking about nothing right. I never had experience. I've never had that experience now. i also getting the dosage right has been a challenge. I went up and up. And then i got. I took a dosage at which i fully lost time like. I said i sat down to write something and then it was night. That's when you know it's the right dose a five milligrams lesson you gotta you gotta walk right up to the edge and then take a few steps back. That's your that's your sweet spot you sleep. How does it affect your sleep for me. It really doesn't we take how early in the day. Do you take Right when i wake up and then sometimes little booster in the early afternoon. Yeah that's like me and it doesn't affect if you're like a very light sleeper particularly sensitive to medications it it. Can you know there's a moment in my twenty twenties. Where i was on like an upper at it was judy. Garland like it was like you know something to like. Wake me up in the mornings. I'm into something to put me to bed. And then something like even me out and that cycle felt really unhealthy. So i like got off the nighttime. I got off the the downer and the the out the evening out medication and then now just just i've i've doubled down uppers. Grand sleep is probably an issue anyway. Because there's a baby in your house. Let's take the pin out of the baby. Yeah yeah. I mean it's it was it's it's still surreal. I mean it's been five weeks and you know to have had this happened during quarantine you know. My husband and i had been talking about having a family. He is one of seven so he grew up with lots. You know he changed diapers from when he was six years old to help his parents. And i was the only child until i was nine. And then My parents had my brother. And i went to boarding school at fifteen so anyway just kind of like missed his. I was too young to i. I didn't help. And then he grew up in. I was out of the house puts. I had never really experienced an infant or a baby and didn't really think that it was something i wanted until probably after i left into the gloss and started necessar- and was like i feel like the meaning of life is like having a family and like you know sort of having the what you go home to versus the thing you're in the office for and you know that is when i felt very strongly that i wanted to get married which was also something. I wasn't sure. I wanted and also really strongly that i wanted kids because it it grounds you in a funny way in someone who's like super adhd and all over the place like it makes you kind of come back to something and like seeing you know we all have like i would imagine like that Existential dread like what are we doing. Here is life like we're all going to die. It's all happening in an instant. And then i was our surrogate allowed us to be in the delivery room when our daughter was born and watch the entire thing and it was. It was so amazing. Not because i was like immediately in love and like you know whatever But more just so that like you actually realize this is. This is how we all got here like. This is the meaning of life. Like this is literally like there's a baby inside that then comes out and becomes a life and then you nurture it and grow it and it becomes a adult and then has like this is sort of the everyone i i was telling my husband like everyone should have to see it. And it's so not gross. It's like such a interesting way to understand like what the point is. Because i think i've always been so hard myself and so driven to like start a brand and to raise money into do all these things and then i kind of realized like it's not really like that. They're they're of life like the more people you have at home when you go home. The more like rich like fun. Life is for me and i love the name evie by the way. How did you choose that migra. I was really close to my grandmother whose name was evelyn. She was actually funny enough. Like when i was little my parents will not listen to this podcast that it doesn't matter but i was like four or five years old. I think and my parents took me to a psychiatrist for like was exhibiting feminine behavior and my parents are like loving really loving very liberal. You know people very open minded people from new york They were also first time parents. It was also nineteen eighty three the early eighties and everyone that was gay that they knew was dying. They lived on christopher bleaker. Select literally at the epicenter of aids. And i'm sort of. This is what. I've come to sort of understand the context of it all but essentially i was like in conversion therapy from like like fancy jewish version of conversion therapy for for several years. And so i think you know. Not only was my grandma. Evelyn like the person who really like allowed me in a funny way to be myself like she would buy me my little ponies and the books that i wanted and the toys that i wanted and she was really glamorous loved that she were makeup and heels and just was like like this sort of like had this iconic look about her but she also really because she probably didn't have skin in the game like because i think she was hard on my mom but for me she was just like dote on me and let me do it all and i always was so close to her because she and now in retrospect unlike because she saw me like she saw lake who i was and that there was nothing wrong with me when i was even those little kid who was being told three times a week that there is like and it wasn't like i was talking about being gay or something at five years old but it was more just like this idea the restaurant with dock that i was going to a doctor three times a week for something. What would they like..

"Okay. So i d realistic at the very beginning with the beauty. Talk when we should have started by simply asking you. What you've been watching consuming. What's been getting you through the pandemic. So i think we were talking about this before i started recording but i have like extreme. Add or adhd successfully managed with You know class one Substances sure So like watching consuming in general is like a is a tough thing so a lot of bravo because you can be on your phone and watch and you're not really missing anything even if you're missing something because we all know the stories and then there's been a few bright lights for me in and bright light from you. I can actually follow the series through its conclusion. So i mean. Did you watch murderer on middle. Beach loved it. Nope and he was hot too. Which helped i was. I felt very attached to him. And yeah you can give. Dm's idea tim when it was over just like an emotion like the credits are rolling. I'm crying. I'm like i'm i'm you know i'm rooting for you. And your mother. It'd be so prejudiced so inappropriate didn't know unscented resend it. Yeah i gotta figure something free. I can send him. I don't know what. yeah yeah unorthodox. I was obsessed with the story of like lee. The girl who leaves the ultra orthodox community in new york and i became really into a obsessed with The husband who's gay guy who plays her husband. Oh meet rajavi. He's gay and he has a really hot boyfriend. They live in israel. And i follow them on instagram. And they seem to be having a great time. And then anything related to jeffrey epstein. And i thought maybe we like we could unpack them. I don't really know why i like love. I know it's about love anything about anything about the story. Like podcast a mini series of I could just listen to. I could listen to someone. Read you know the trans the court transcripts. So how do you. What is your theory. I mean there's i mean he's a. He's despicable vile criminal. But there's so many there's so many things like did you. Have you seen the video of him when he's talking about like the prosecutors deposing him and saying is it true you have like an egg shaped dick egg-shaped and and he rolls his eyes and he's like that it's been described as skinny at the bottom. You know becoming bigger in the middle and then skinny again at top like an egg and he is like this. This is over and he walks out. You can find it on youtube so he apparently has an edge. So this is a guy with an egg shaped dick sh Who's kind of to me and doing these horrible things and on right before he quote unquote commit suicide. He transfers like all of his e-essentially. Transfer moves all of his money to the caribbean knowing. Theoretically that he's going to kill himself the next day and the only reason that he would do that so that his victims wouldn't be able to access his money for many many many years. And that's like a level of diabolical strategy that i find fascinating. Well that's what i meant is what is your take about his demise. I have you ever seen that manhattan correctional facility on atlantic avenue. No if there's a place that would make you want to end it all. It is it. Is that place. But at the same at the same time i guess the facts are very sketchy about how the guard was off duty and the other guy hadn't come in woman's asleep and whatever like whether it was you know some like four in assassin. Who had come to like save. You know what's his name. Who's the the pedophile in the royal family andrew andrew like someone who was like saving andrews ass or whether it was like the you know someone paid the guard. Just slip him. You know the belt or whatever he did it with shoelace. I guess. I don't know but now like the d'alene maxwell stuff is like picking up right where jeffrey left off in terms of my interest and the fact that they are so he was and she continues to be so unwilling to her. Life is over o. Spending the rest of her life in jail like regardless of what she says at this point and the fact that they won't give not only financial compensation to the victims but even the acknowledgement or the admit admitting any wrongdoing is like to me very fascinating. Let's diabolical is. The word aren't talking about adhd for a moment. At what point you Diagnosed so i went to boarding school and there was a psychiatrist who like saw all the kids in my boarding school. Who my parents affectionately. Nicknamed dr pill i think. His last name had like a p. In it but so i was like maybe fifteen and went from a very lovey dovey. Call your teachers by their first name. Kind of middle school to a really rigorous high stakes boarding school and kind crumbled under the pressure and had trouble focusing etc and went to this psychiatrist who i prescribe ritalin like literally fifteen and i've been on something ever since which sounds bad However i did get. I like did a lot of people you know get prescribed it without having the full diagnostic testing for adhd. I actually ended up when i was eighteen. Getting all that testing and they did have adhd and the drugs really helped me. But i'm also you know entirely addicted to them But my friends not even my psychiatrist. My friends psychiatrist told her something who and she told me this. Which made me feel a lot better. That was like you know if you were strand. Desert island like. Wouldn't you need to bring your heart medication if you had a heart problem. Absolutely like the same thing with at her. Yeah so now. Now i take vance which really it was created for. I guess it was created in response to like people abusing adderall. so like snorting it and You know i guess you just snort it and survive is absorbed into your stomach is absorbed by your stomach versus interior bloodstream. Or before it goes into your bloodstream. So you can't snort you can't really abuse it but the reason i like it is it just It works all day. And i've i've taken. I feel very conflicted about adhd atarot. Because i'm thirty seven like you kind of feels like something you should grow out of. And then you also like. I'm an anxious neurotic. Jewish and i'm like is this taking years off my life. My heart's beating faster than everyone. Else's you're only has so many beets in it. You know until it stops. So i am. I like using all the heartbeats epicure this huge on your podcast that you will periodically go off the heads to. When i left into the gloss it was like a pretty traumatic ending. And i decided to take that opportunity doing nothing to dry out so to speak and i didn't take any adderall for two years and it was the first time in fifteen years that i had not taken adderall and it took me a few weeks to like adjust but after that point i was fine. I also like wasn't having to focus on anything so there was not really. It wasn't putting it you know putting my adhd to the test and it felt good. It was more like a bad. I worked like a badge of honor. Because i had sort of been on it for so long and has such a bad reputation and then when i started working on another business i just called up dr p shum pill to the rescue. Yeah i went on at all in the last six months and it has made my world of difference. You accomplished so much without her all barely. But like it's all about you ever written a word without adderall. If you pushing deadlines and it's very good when you have signed a contract and you will be in breach of it if you don't do the work but like yeah. I mean getting a book was was murdered. It was terrible as it. Yeah but now and during that it was like i should probably get all those tests for adhd. And i did and it was like yep and then i didn't do anything about it and then lockdown made it unavoidable like the couldn't fill my day with aaron's and meetings it was just like i'm stuck here i couldn't get anything done and so yeah so now i'm on a.

"Make this really big and we can do all these things that we've talked about doing together. And she was like cool and so that was kind of last time. I had you know corporate health insurance and we went to her apartment and for two years we built we built up into the gloss we raise money for glossy and it was in in in really like doing that. Part of editorial which digital and now digital's podcast. It's instagram all these things. But at that point it was like blogs really put you in close contact with the people who are actually reading and absorbing the shit that you're talking about magazines which three months later so you have no idea whether people are reading it and responding to it and like all the editors are fake. So i found like the real inch of meat of what's going on and beauty is happening in the comments section and what people want is right there for us to like discover in the comments like they're they're and the people were interviewing are telling us basically what they want what they wish existed and that i think was sort of like the organic way that i kind of think about like you know running a business and having a brand i will say like the actual running the running. A business part is not something that i have any experience in. And so that i think was the biggest Hurdle was kind of understanding managing people which you know. I didn't know how to do and is one of the hardest in my experience. Like one of the hardest things to do and i'm definitely not the finance guy or even like the close to finance guy but from a creative standpoint. I always did feel like i. If you stay close to the comments section like you'll stay close to what like what consumers want what you want. What people will think is interesting cool and so with necessar- to answer your question. I just felt like there. Wasn't this idea of like you know if you go into like the the body wash at a grocery store or at a drugstore. There's like you know shower like wrap yourself in the kashmir blanket of butterflies and sparkles with suave or whatever right and then. There's you literally look at the copy on an old spice body washes like slap it on and fling it off like you know what i mean like and you'll get so much pussy and i was like there has to be a brand that can speak somewhere in between the the two extremes and like i just think it's such an outdated way of talking to men or women and so the idea that my partner and i came up with was sort of a a unisex brand that just was if anyone who wanted something that looked cool and shampoo and conditioner or rather body wash body. Lotion are actually big. You know you buy them. They're bigger than like a face cream. Which is like this is like. It's physically takes up a lot of real estate in your shower so it was kind of like we thought okay. This is kind of furniture for your bathroom. That's always there so why not make it. Look cool why have it look cheesy. So that was. I was cut from like the you know what i use this. What do i want. What like what. Sort of weird things. Where i see happening in the drugstore and i know it's it's a young brand right two years little over two years. We launched in november twenty eighteen. Yeah it really came on my radar during pandemic. Like i said sort of dodging an all things new was always at the top recommendation. Everywhere i went and now we're of course hooked on it but now most it's seeing kim k. And gwyneth paltrow and knows crazy. We've reached a whole other level. So was there a turning for you where you're like. Oh i think this might stick around for a while. I'm trying to think if there was one moment. I mean like that's what i do is kind of just all i care about culture and like designed geist and and i follow it and i consume it so just always always thinking like who do i need to get this product in the hands of and it's like a it's a wide. It's a long list and a really like far wide ranging list of people. Because i thought if you can get this bizarre constellation of people talking and trying this thing i mean number one. The product kind of speaks for itself. You see like the. The challenge is getting the person the kim kardashian or whoever to like try it and once they try i i pretty sure they're gonna like it so just really being strategic about like you know it's high low it's east west. It's like all the different sort of like ways you think you can make something cool. So it's like these cool like club kids in new york who i know but it's also supermodels in. Its you know. Sports people or comedians on tiktok that i thought were cool like it was. I always kind of wanted a little bit of like variety. Which i think was the way that it like kind of became ubiquitous on on instagram. So how do you get. Then a kim kardashian who has sent everything in the world. Well i i. I'm not fulltime just advisor for necessary for not since the pandemic started actually so i can unfortunately take no direct responsibility for that. It's it's all i mean like. Here's my well. I'll give my my big tip which is sending dm's and then if they don't read the dm copying it on sending it and sending it again like once a week and copy you can send a dm. Yeah great great. This was like my old. When i was trying to get a job in media it was always like emailing once a week to follow up because at one point at some point. They're going to just like respond just to get rid of you. Maybe at that point they'll look at your resume and wanna talk but so it's been a lot of deeming and never underestimate the power of a free of of something that's free right. I'm just like just can i. Can i send you free things. And they're free things that everyone uses which is a good thing it's like body wash body lotion there so inoffensive. No one's gonna say no how that yeah exactly..

"I'll tell you mind if you from years reveal. Wow talks yeah see. I'm growing out because you know because there's a global pandemic so and i just like trying to find products that will make it look like it looks the second. Get out of the shower all. Yeah but so far. Pros is not. It's good but it's also it's so damn expensive. I i feel you on that on that hair journey like i have been on the hair journey might entire life. My dad has always has been on a hair journey to so. I think i inherited it but like i've always looking for that thing that's going to make my jewish frizzy curls like smooth and ideally like disney prince. Like right And you know. When i was younger i would use all the like straightening like serums that you provide the drugstore and they don't fucking do a thing now And so now. I've kind of had to lean into the fact that like this is who i am but i did the moment where i was using that crazy. Exfoliating system in new york. I also because i was running into the gloss which was Beauty website. I was getting free. Keratin treatments like brazilian formaldehyde. That like you have to keep the windows open. And they're not exactly street. Legal getting those regularly and it it. My hair was finally like the disney prince. How long are we talking this long. So it lasted all of like six weeks of real beauty beauty s hair or then otherwise it was like probably shortening my life. Yeah i've been thinking about doing one of those. I'm really not the answer. It's don't you dare but the answer is like those things like you. I answered you have to just embrace where you have right and both of you with your the these thick locks. It's like you have thick hair privilege and you need to wheel that responsibly. For those of us that have lake thin wisps that were holding onto for dear life. Stop i i have about ten more beauty questions for you but we'll come back to it. i wanna talk about you. Well how what was. What role did what was your relationship to all things beauty when you were a kid so i was. I was born in new york city and like a super gay theater kid. Even though there wasn't i didn't know the i didn't have the words for it. At the time but like incredibly flamboyant and my parents moved to the middle of nowhere in upstate. New york. When i was seven and i went from like being normal to being the only one and it was like a it was super traumatic. And we're talking like the of nowhere cows barnes Have you ever seen baby-boom with diane keaton. Of course lawyer who moves up you know. Learn the city moves out to like a cabin in the woods without heat. It was kind of those vibes. And so i was just like ostracized immediately and made fun of mercilessly and with with abandoned abandoned for like the longest time so i think in my early. My earliest experience with beauty was like kind of like wanting to fit in. But also. In retrospect looking so gay. When i was doing it you know like i was like really into gel and one summer. I decided that. I wanted to bleach. So i had a bowl cut and i wanted to bleached the bowl and then leave the bottom dark. Oh but i made from berlin. Yeah i did. I made a deal with my mom that could do it. The day after school Let out which was probably some protective on her part And so i went to camp with that hairstyle. But i was like my hair was sort of the thing i could change up but otherwise they'd just like desperately tried to fit in like me and my dad take me to abercrombie one. You know year before like back to school shopping. Just to see if i could like where the clothes in you know absorb the raw masculinity a couldn't And then one time. When i was a little kid my only other beauty memory is that i think it was around halloween. I took an entire jar of vaseline and put it in my hair. And if you've ever done that you would know that it's incredibly hard to get like. There's not many things that cut vastly race so well know my mom had to call the number on the back of the vat questions concerns like call and you're like who would ever call the back of a vast concern. Yeah we had a concern and so she had to walk through how to figure out how to get it out now. What was the purpose. Because this is the thing that i would have done i. I don't remember. But i think it was like a about dressing up like some sort of like a character. You know that. I want to i think slick and sleek in maybe like vamp. I don't know it was not anything that a. Yeah it was about a look and i always i would like dye my hair. Like you know would experiment with that stuff But i tried to keep it pretty low key until i came out of the closet at which point i was like. I wanna be a fashion designer. Like i wanted just like experiment with everything and it turned out that i didn't want to be a fashion designer. I just like for the first time could experiment with style without being afraid that i was going to be found out Any more so than i already was being whispered about And so that. That's why i kind of started in the fashion industry and then from fashion show switch to beauty which i just found more interesting as a guy because fashion is dominated by women's fashion. So i'd find myself writing about women's clothes and i do not care about women's clothes. Why writing about it and so a beauty. At least i can take part. I'm interested in the evolution from know beauty editor to to business owner. I mean yeah. How did you so after all of your experience when you decided to launch necessar- what was important to you so i started out in magazines when magazine still existed. I actually worked at a newspaper. Women's wear daily which came out every single day and everyone in fashion and beauty worlds would get it on their desk not to date myself but like physical newsprint and if you like make a mistake or fuck up. My managing editor would say like well. It'd be tomorrow's like hamster cage. You know the litter. So don't worry about it because there was i guess also internet but they the the idea of coming from the world of media when two thousand eight happened and media. All of a sudden was not really viable career and everything was going online. Seemed really exciting to me. My friend had started A blog called into the gloss. Emily weiss who's now like a titan And i said why. Don't i quit my job and come we'll go to your apartment and will you know..

"Will you tell me. So what were you. What were you. Let me throw some throw. Throw some stuff at you. Tell me if you are allowed to give me your honest opinions okay. I would say the all time. Favorite is dr 'nigma 's serum number one who dr. Nick say like this was something i discover. It's a shanty. Darden is a big proponent of and molly sims and i've just fallen down a lot of their rabbit holes and and chase fm and it's basically just hyler onic acid serum but. It's the most enjoyable one. I have ever used. But it really. How nick leave. Skin-care his a naturopathic doctor. And this was a molly sims recommendation. I think so i. i believe that. She credited Some for doing this to the serum Anyway so that was one the other one. I'm sure you're familiar with. The skin suit articles the different vitamins. Dave i'm suicide. Fuck jergens at some point about. I promise we will move off this but yeah and the florida. What are your thoughts on those. It works for a lot of people like some people swear by it. I like powdered vitamin c. Sarum because Sorry powder vitamin c. Because i guess again. According to our lord paula goon Anything vitamin c. Can't like the minute hits water it starts oxidise or like you know. Hits air starts oxidized so the only way to really get the efficacy of actual vitamin c. On your skin is to use a powder it to your moisturizer attitude serum and then apply that. So there's one that's by. This company called the new company. And you e that is like you. Shake a few shakes of this vitamin c. You can add a powder you can add it to anything like your moisturizer or your onic. Acid perfect to add this to. And then you add you pump it on and actually mandate chantal bacon. She's the founder of moon juice. who was famously. He's lampooned in that video where she describes her routine. And yeah yeah But she was telling us. I was asking like she has a line of products at sephora. They're all natural. No you as close to organic is they can get what. I don't even think we were recording. I was like what do you make that actually like really that. You notice a difference like you do this. You use this thing and like your face. Looks different and she said it was. She has a higher onic. Acid serum called like the pumping jelly. And you add a few shakes of vitamin c powder and you put it on your face like slather all over like a mask and within five seconds your skin drinks it up this. Oh sorry you're supposed to be wet like dripping wet. Oh juicing hearing when you slather your face with this pumping jelly mixed with a little bit of vitamin c powder. Five seconds later your skin drinks it up and like she actually like said that she you know her skin just looks less dry looks plumper. Looks like more refreshed and i. It is pretty amazing. There's really no reason that. The skin suit goals vitamin c Things need to cost one hundred sixty six dollars. No no no. But i will say this that you know the brand the ordinary. Yep so they i like wanted. I really really wanted to love that brand. Because it's cheap and you can get heilige acid or any b. o. j. They you can buy. You can be a chemist right with and it's like five dollars for a like a big thing of the serum and then you try that higher acid and it's like sticky and it doesn't absorb with and you compare it to like our friend dr 'nigma and it's like a completely different product like glides nicer it absorbs in so like there obviously is something like to the the price of of the product but on but to a certain extent yes i was like over one hundred dollars like israel. You're not the you can get. You can find a good thing under one hundred dollars now. This is not skin. But what are your feelings on. Pros i my husband uses it. Okay high email yet. You go ahead well you. It's a mail order hair product you can take like a survey survey. Yeah yeah yeah and Yeah i got it off a instagram. And and the one thing that i know i've been using month and the the one thing i'm certain of is that it is very very expensive but i don't know if it's actually doing anything or or whether it just makes me feel good to use a product that has my name on it gave has icon of care that he's hiding underneath the hat foolishly. No i mean..

"We're back with nick axel rodwell ohio. Hi thank you for being here. So i yeah i i changed my name when i got married to axelrod. Welken on our podcast. We've had a lot of readers very confused because they think i'm saying and welcome to i witness beauty so it is. It is just my husband's last name it's a welcoming last name. And welk welcome to the show. And he relation. Note to laurence welk. Yes i wish. Oh god told me distant. There's a distant. let's just say we're not raking there's not we weren't in the will talk unfortunately okay understood. Yeah that is that is a shame. Well there's so much to get into but before we do. I would love to just start start at the beginning. Start where you start. And i want you to walk me through your morning routine. The skin care every step every product. Okay every moment. So i was actually just Interviewing this guy who is talking about giving up during quarantine and if you sort of think like the way that i've described this sort of de-evolution of my skin care routine would lead some to believe that i have become incredibly clinically depressed. You know because it's like why do it if no one's going to see it kind of thing So that's like the asterisk is that you know i. It's gotten really really low key. I think i. When i was at my peak i was probably living in new york and had like ten step routine and my i. My skin was amazing. I was using this. There was a brand that i think still exists called some institute. sme and it was started by clinical researcher. Skin care researcher. Who had been doing all these studies on all the fancy skincare brands and decided that he had a better idea of how to create a system. So it starts with the face wash and then these exfoliating pads and then moisturizer and then an spf. And you do it morning and night and for six months i religiously did it morning and night and my skin was like unbelievable like people would like come up to me and i mean say like are you wearing foundation like your skin is so even kinda like glowing and it just this brand called the psalm institute i think. And he has a patented something. Something something it's actually not that expensive and it does still exist so if you know my the astros have to. That is that after. Like six months and i think it was more because i was adding so many different products to my routine to try it out to be able to talk about it. That my skin sensitized my skin and it kind of just freaked out and then all of a sudden i couldn't use these harsh exfoliating things so that was that was probably my peak and i was twenty eight and now i'm thirty seven. And what do i do i mean. I- i- showering is a struggle. And i know. I started you know. I co founded a brand with body wash as like a launch product. But you know showering isn't struggle explain. It's i don't love getting wet. And i have long curly hair. And it's like taking off your clothes putting on your cl- yeah i don't know it's it's become something it's maybe it's like a mind block that i have but i i wanna say like showering like three to four times. A week is pretty good and it's also like where am i going short right. Who's who's her. Yeah who am. I doing this new baby and your household. There's a new baby. I'd like to say that the two things are related. But if anything like. I'm sharing more. Because i have someone to shower for. Yeah we had my husband. And i had a baby a month in a month ago Which has no effect on my skin care routine what it is. Yeah okay sorry. So we'll put a pin in the baby so my skin care routine at this point is the necessary body wash which you were just holding up his insane and i can say that. Because i was my co-founder one who developed the actual product. So i you know i. It wasn't me but it's it. Has this like crazy texture. That's kind of like honey like and it's a little like bouncy and it just makes the act of using body. Wash a little nicer. I think what we wanted to do is like this. Sounds like pr spin. But it's it's true is like you know like the feeling of luxury like sometimes like the weight lemaire which like path up three quarters of the mayor's the jar. It's just like it's this heavy glass jar that like feels really nice to open and close and the idea that like you could create body wash which is such like nothing you know has been historically like such nothing product and then like make a cool cap and like make it drip into certain way and like kind of just make make the bottle a little soft touch like the things would just make the experience a little bit nicer so i do. I use that every time in the shower. Put it that way. And then from like a skin-care perspective. I'm always trying. I'm trying new things out so right now. And i like i like a system. I'm not a very organized person. So anything that tells me like you do step one step two like i really wanna buy a. Yeah and it's just like i i. It sounds like you know what you're talking about. If you don't do it you know don't do it in reverse like you have to do it this thing. I so right now. The routine that. I'm into the system is called. It's by brand called you beauty. So they have this like serum which is like a resurfacing serum and then you follow that with their like hydrating complex which has moisturizer. And i'm really into these. Because i don't know like maybe it's all the not showering but like my skin has been getting rough and dehydrated during this whole quarantine and this the resurfacing like the combination of like a really good hydration to finish it off. This resurfacing serum has actually really helped. It's i kind of went the opposite traction in quarantine and started using it as an excuse to blake by four and derm. I know i'm talking only about like you're not one of those guys was like. I took the opportunity to really like him with my with my meals. A sick person who did that no. I use it as an excuse to buy a lot of expensive skin care products and on your podcast pop paula. Apollo's choice yeah. The goddess vehemently is opposed to expensive skincare products. Yeah she she was like you know. I know what the cost of all these formulations are. There's no reason for. And i gotta say i needed here. It and i started. You're buying you're buying fancy stuff. Yes yeah the thing that that i broke me was that lemaire is made in long island. Yeah i mean that's devastating and also just stuff in jarred not not what you want. Oh yeah well. If you're falling like the gospel of paula. Anything that you dip your fingers or your hands into has to have well number one like any. Active ingredients would immediately start to deactivate because of the constant exposure to the elements in the air and number two. They have to have more preservatives in them. Because you're constantly introducing bacteria into the product so like you're just anything that comes in like an airlift pump or anything like that is just going to buy the vehicle. It's delivered in not have not have nearly as much preserve many preservatives but it. Yeah okay so hold on..

And he said and he said But we're going. We're not going to tea dances. We're not doing any of that stuff. We are being careful like when you're fully vaccinated and by then aren't we assuming that everyone is i. Bring it up because unlike i is that going to be the new sensibility when we when we gather in large groups people are still going to be extremely cautious in like late summer. I don't think so. i hope not. I don't think so either. Because i want us draping all over each other. Like you're saying yeah. Yeah i don't know there's no clear guidance on it yet but i hope it will or there is and i don't wanna hear it. I'm not exactly sure which is right. I know i'm worried.

And i'm here to tell you it gets worse. I can't imagine so. This isn't a spoiler because this is old news now but she. She was channeling john lennon. That's correct apparently even during they were shooting the original show in nineteen ninety two. She was receiving messages from john lennon. She delivers this news. As if she's just kind of like. Oh yeah yeah was seen this guy the whole time we were. We were shooting the show right. John lennon ghost a ghost of john lennon came to her in an nyu dormitory stayed with her for a few years. Also in the loft and they co wrote songs together now. I don't know if you've heard any but it's not. It's not john lennon's best work. It's not imagine no do i mean. Is this just full blown mental illness. We're thinking now. I don't i don't think so i don't think so. I think she's just. She is the prime example of what. I call elevated stupidity. Where it's like so did that. She comes all the way back around the world and lands at stupid. You will hear her. Say some things that are. That are absolutely astonishingly stupid. In the same way saying that she spent twenty years working with a russian theoretical physicist and healer. And you know that. Her dad was a brilliant cycle psychologist. And all this stuff. She's just she's she does not. She's the shouldn't what time it is. It's the she really doesn't.

"About cold showers and cold plunging and we've had a lot of we'll we'll pick it up on a mini episode. Sumo we've had a lot of listeners right in about their experiences. And then when i was interviewing anne from witness beauty she was talking about her insomnia and said that the thing that has helped the most per the recommendation of an acupuncturist is taking an ice cold shower for three minutes before bed. Because it resets your nervous system and it's not like you wash yourself you just stand there and the cold water so i have found this intriguing. That's amazing now. It's a little bit of a coward when it comes to cold water. Yeah i could do. It wants this week. Either jumping in the pool or taking a cold taking a cold shower or just trying a cold shower and if it's too much. Aw you know. I'll make warm. I like this for you know. This is a new one for me.

"Our guest today are anti creek bombs. And nick axelrod welk anne neck i love. I love a duo on the podcast. Welcome thing so excited to be here so let me let me give a little. A little highlight with your bio. Anne is a beauty journalist turned exac and former brand lead for glossy and nick is a former reporter for l. and wwe which is women's wear daily correct. Yes it is there. Were these things called. Newspapers that we used to read would get delivered every day. It was the fashion newspaper. Like the most. I one of the most iconic fashion newspapers i would say and you are also the co founder of the personal brand. Excuse me personal care brand. Necessar- said that right. It's been awhile since i've taken french. And you co founded the iconic beauty site into the gloss and together. They co host eyewitness beauty which is a beauty and pop culture. Podcast available wherever you get your podcast. You guys to focus on the business side of beauty. And i'm curious with this question. I'm not even i'm wondering if it's even possible for there to be trends in beauty in twenty twenty one when when the beauty is feels like the world has kind of just been uprooted or or changed by this pandemic but what are some trends that you are are seeing that you're seeing and that you like for yourself well on the kind of inside baseball cy. But sure it's not news to anyone like you describe yourself as like more of like a novice like outsiders which i think you're an expert than you give credit for it. But but for since the since they started tracking this stuff color cosmetics which make up products. I don't need to explain to anybody. Listening with that. Means has been like the category that's been consistently the number one revenue driver for any like big brand just for the industry in general like like the biggest challenge of the pie. I don't know what color cosmetics is so that's basically when you walk into a sephora and you're you're the first thing you see is makeup skin care is in the back of the store and the fragrances at the back of the wall like. That's all intentional. In order of sales. Yeah oh lord was at a certain point. Yeah learning okay okay. yeah so. The industry is is sliced up. Land like hair care. Skin care whatever color. Cosmetics has been like since the dawn of time like the number one biggest category billions of billions of dollars. Will just last year skin care has taken over which hilly coming from my glossy and like kind of seeing that wave happen. I think it really started with k beauty coming into the us people on the internet. We're getting much more educated around like ingredients and different. There's going team. I think like the trend has been going on for quite some time. But just last year. I think with the pandemic <hes>. And people being at home and having to diy more skin care. And i think too like people understanding like actually. I don't need to see a dermatologist. For every little thing. I can exhausted. Leasings myself <hes>. Skin-care has overtaken. So i think that that's gonna continue for sure in like the entrance of all these mid to lower mid range brands in terms of price point like the ordinary or the inky list or natori like things that could all of a sudden by acid <hes>. For ten dollars versus what happened probably five years ago which is either the hydraulic. Acid is from lemaire and it's two hundred and fifty dollars or they're probably wasn't even one you could buy in the drug store so i think that they're just exists now category of product. So that you know what like with makeup. You could buy ten dollar lipstick to get the same idea as a forty dollar up stick <hes>. Same relative color now with skin care. You can sort of do the same thing. Okay so many so many questions. So i wanna i ask you because you mentioned this sensation of going into sephora and everything is so deeply intentional and i know it's the same with marketing and packaging and in thinking about like price points getting lower. Our is the quality of products the same so much of beauty just like markups and exclusivity and making something sound fancy and getting it in the hands of like victoria beckham or is there a true difference in quality so one anecdote i have. Is that one time someone told me in this completely rocked my world. That lemaire is made in long island and and that sort of says it all like you know. It's a cream with some like plankton. In it or you know no seaweed. I guess and it's made long island and they call it. Lum creme de la mayor and it's three hundred dollars <hes>. Is that does that mean that. There's two hundred dollars worth of ingredients in there. No one hundred fifty. No one hundred fifty eight okay. So for context like the markup degree product but for a healthy cosmetics company business in general the markup on cosmetics from the goop and the packaging is eighty percent margins. So a two dollar what it cost you two dollars to make gold charge ten dollars for and that's like standard across the industry and you can't really knock a cosmetics company for doing that because they are so so cheap to make and to have investors to be able to pay the bills to be able to make this something that can really support a team and you know whatever and like grow a business. That's just industry standard so like. I don't think anybody's pulling the wool. Over consumers is this markup rate on the fashion. It's like some pence fifty percent or less of a markup. So that's i kind of a comparison. I forgot like what other interesting. I was about to say it. But i'm sure nick has a million. Well well yeah it's not. It's not an evil thing. The markup i think there's so many more there's so many more costs testing everything saying what's the difference between something that's like super expensive versus something. That's like a little bit more accessible. I do think that there's a huge difference. I mean i think what the ordinary did is like very interesting. And i still think they make like a lot of great products in general but you kinda of see like the texture of putting on like the heireann sierra and from the ordinary that costs you six dollars versus like one that has more ingredients in it from like a. I don't even know if they have one and playing with taught harper. Like it's this absorbs into skin better doesn't leave sticky feeling. Where's better under makeup. Like might smell nicer. These are all things that you have to consider. Its except for some people. It's worth paying for for others. It's not worth it and they'd rather just by the seven dollar one so okay so this leads me to my next question. Which is i'm kind of obsessed with this idea of dupes especially when it comes to here and makeup like and candles but not all. Dupes are really dupes. I kind of get into this. Like spiral do you believe. Dupes are real as possible to have a troop in skin care or makeup products. I think it's rare. There's certain things that you can charge more money. For the candle you can afford like a fragrance concentrations get a more powerful fragrance certain synthetics that are really expensive like amd brett <hes>. Which is a mosque. like an animal derived. it was an animal derived. Musk now it's all <hes>. Made in the lab <hes>. But that is like a really expensive thing to create. So that's why a lot of like less expensive candles expensive fragrances. Don't have that smell

That's like people who know rings like not just US amateurs who dabble in vogue it's like a no look like wearing a jumpsuit my friend gave me. And also a nick also co founder of the Personal Care Brand and Necessar- and I will say he sent me a gift basket that I was like who cares about the enough to send this amount of product this amount of luxury product for the bath okay.

Please welcome and Nick I. Thank you so much for having US I mean we're branching out into New Territories and it feels good to just get your takes I, mean I I i. Love the housewives, and so I needed to figure out my way in talking to you is about the housewives and it was beauty. It was their beauty, their beauty of which they are most of them. So very beautiful them actually, and some of them you know it's more of a mask they put on as opposed to what they really look like some of them i. don't believe I would know what they. Look like without their makeup on if I saw like Lisa, on the street I wonder if I would recognize her I think she goes anywhere without Mak-, right? Yeah. That's how I mean. Have you seen speaking of which Kim's Zodiac bearman without makeup now twenty, twenty, Kim I don't think so unrecognized, you would never wreck early Oriole. No. Wow. I just saw on TV I didn't here in person but well, I gotta make up with. Federica and Anne welcome to you as well. Thank you. I'm so excited to be here guys before we start I did want to ask your opinion on my lipstick now. What I want to say to you, both may give you a little luck T- like it. Yes or no it's like a faded red. I can't tell if the color on my screen as accurately depicting it. Well, let me say something it's not lipstick. It's the Zoom filterless tech. There's a new upgrade on zoom. You can go into like visual effects and you can change your lip color and I just wear this now on Sims and I have to go get any color you want and I feel like I. Hope they don't give glossy I run for their money is my hope but you can change your local literally anything that follows you look, but then show them up close next to the MIC. Disappear. But when am I, using them into the might I get compliments on all these new lips that I'm doing. But I'm not even do what do you think about this new trend that I started? Of the filter makeup. Yeah. Are you upset Oh I love I love instagram filter but I like the ones where you can tell it's a filter like you know with the butterflies and. sparkles and whatever I don't like the subtle ones yet see I like this because I don't want people to know that I didn't even take two seconds to put on lipstick I'm using it as a genuinely timesaver from fact. My husband and I are doing surrogacy and egg donor agencies have nine. Nov.. have. Not yet figured out instagram filters. So all the pictures from like I'd say, eighty five percent of the of the egg donors on these websites are all filtered like snapchat pictures with like the birds flying around their heads and saw. And it's like you can't really tell what these people look like and they're going to be the genetic. Parents. I love those Mickey Mouse years but like. I want my child to have Bambi. And so. Is Yes. That is so weird. Yeah. Okay. Guys hit us with your heartaches on beauty and you also said you've got some thoughts about missed opportunities for brands for some of these women and the brands you like and don't like just let us let us have it. Yeah. So on our show, we always say that like beauty, the beauty industry is a reflection of culture at large and what we found in Oliver Research on these housewife beauty brands that they truly do reflect the culture of the house ways universe and was correct. And what way? What specific way do you believe? Well, we have a few. We have a few thoughts so we weren't super impressed overall unfortunately what? I know I know I dare you to tell me out.

"Hey Caroline. Esther. How are you? I'm really good because we have to bona fide the UT. Legends. Super Brains. They're the host of a podcast that I, binged listened to all weekend and I'm like. Depressed out of episodes and that the next episode they release is going to have a Sonnet, which is just disgusting. I don't need to waste my time with that. But everyone should go listen to it. They're the host of I witness beauty. Welcome. Nick axelrod in Anne isn't quick Rifi working. Really can be an all speak for it can be anything you want it to be. Okay captain. Crunch. Crunch. How you pronouncing it right now. I've always found Craig. Craig because it's like it's like blitzkrieg. That's how it's spelled in Tenenbaum rate. That's the logical but my whole family pronounces it differently. Love that. They all WANNA be separate. Ju. I mean not as you know did you we could tell. Really. Nobody else can. Knit thought that I was, he just landed I wasn't nick. Are you blind in one eye? Like look at her thought she secret Jews you know like there's sometimes those like blonde. You know Jews Natalie Portman they don't. They don't make face shapes like that for Jews, in Eastern Europe. That we don't come in that style. What we're trying to say is your beautiful and we're racist against Jewish people is also what we're trying to say, but we can be a little bit. So okay. First things I can you guys just tell us who the fuck you to are because you guys seem to like know literally everything about beauty and skin care Can Give us the background of why you guys know what you know and why you are who you are. Nick, why don't you go first 'cause really Nick Nick discovered me and made me he molded me from clay does. Frankenstein's monster. Perfect creation no. So I I'm a reporter and editor started out in newspapers when they existed I worked at women's wear daily, which was like the fashion daily trade newspaper, and then I was a senior editor at L. Magazine and Did a covered a lot of fashion designers and music and sort of all the kind of intersection of pop culture and fashion, but I got. I was there for about two and a half years and I think I was telling you guys about this last time we talked. But like I got sick of sitting at my desk in basically realizing that I was in the voice of a woman like talking about like barring your boyfriend. Cardigan and stuff to get the boyfriend look and I was like this is like not. Succeed if this is how inauthentic. Output is and I knew. I was at that point like head become best friends Emily Weiss who had. was still I think like waking up at six o'clock in the morning to write for into the gloss between six and eight, and then going to work at Vogue assisting stylist from nine to eight. PM and and I was like, why don't we like why don't we do this together, I can be a force multiplier I'll quit my job. I. Think it was like the last time I had corporate health insurance. And we'll go to your apartment and we'll kind of make into the gloss into something and kind of explore what it can be because you know it it was it felt really new special to me in that it kind of. You know I guess what glossy became into the gloss kind of embodied in some ways. So like democratizing beauty, making it like that everyone has something making it so that everyone has something to say about it like the girl on the street corner happens to be a neuroscientist, but she also wears lipstick and. and has a whole story about why she picked the Reggie picked like all that kind of stuff I thought was interesting as a reporter and a writer and when I took over into the gloss editorial. Important to me to make it like the smart beauty website I kind of fell that. Beauty writing had gotten kind of silly and like if you think about like what was in like beauty, the beauty pages in fashion magazine, it was like Lipsticks watches and like. I don't know like boring way to think about beauty and I wanted I remember thinking to myself. Let's turn this into like the New Yorker of beauty. Thought. And I thought it'd be fun to get people from outside the beauty industry to write about beauty because I also like when it's outsider kind of exploring something or observing something. So I started to get some a New York and New York, times, writers like molly young and Irene Alexander to contribute like begged and pleaded to get them to contribute, and then when we wanted to hire an executive editor like sort of a head. Of all the content it was really hard to find someone who kind of that vision and this idea of like not taking too seriously. But really being a junkie in her heart of hearts like someone who loves his obsessive beauty but also thinks it's silly and can can be creative and bizarre about it. And then I had seen any his work because I think she's probably. On the end, she gets a little bit embarrassed when I say this but probably on the Internet she's most famous for a tutorial she did. For how to get Lindsey Lowe Hands Mugshot looks. Oh. My God, which like in two thousand twelve or whatever you're the. Two thousand thirteen keep going up here. was like was. Groundbreaking and I thought like, here's someone who like not only. Can she write her ass off? She can take pop culture and turned into a beauty store. So happen to have some of Lindsay's Mugshot looks on coasters that we can talk about if we want. You. How to get the look? This one's a classic that Shit. That little bomber. Had the same the same outfits, and the funniest part is like a couple of years later ended up in her apartment in. London interviewing her. Like. I didn't say anything before and and. I swear like tinder place and she. Looked at me. Everything froze and it was like, fuck she knows. I. Remembered I'm sorry. Say That I cannot have name Lindsay. Lohan. Come up in a conversation without talking about the greatest limited series that has ever existed on television on the network, the series called Lindsey. There is nothing there is no piece of art and honesty and truth out there in media that is better than when the. Winch. Lawn remember when she was collaborating with. UNGARO like she was working on, she had some fashion collaboration so I was interviewing her. That and she came to the office at women's wear daily for a photo shoot, and of course, like it took all day for one picture. And it was the darkest it was like the darkest day of my entire life. Like the energy. was just so dark like the whole thing was just dark and like the handlers and the bathroom breaks and the like Frenetic Blake backing you. So many bathroom breaks. But. Anything. That Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles and I was it was so exciting for me. I think it was at Alchemy Padre in sheep but she was she got up from the table thirty five times. And just watching her get up and come back and get up and come back was the most exciting day of my life. Look, she's a proud Arabic woman and. I won't have YOU BESMIRCH MY Middle Eastern sister's name this way which. She quarantining and Dubai also when I met her that wasn't public yet. So imagine how freaked out I was like she was climbing Abebe. Think. She was like also like taking fluent Arabic Koran out. Do you guys remember what? She had a leggings line. To six. Marilyn Monroe's birthday. Godly. Wow and then of course, the foreigner Rena commercial is always what sticks out to me. I'll send it to the group. I don't know how we can do this. Best. But she's like Pop Slam Foreign, Ariba? Yes. Like a commercial only aired in Europe or something. I'm not sure but you know I'll chat it to you guys in. You can watch it on your own time. Perfect. Okay. Sorry. anyways you hired Anne. So then I hired any and she became the like content director of into the gloss and then. I ended up leaving into the gloss. Right Bright as glossy was launching and then moved to. La and long story short CO founded this. Skin care for the body brand at the time was sort of a new concept.
