Where do you go for a little retail therapy?
Premium 93 and Barneys. Both stores carry unique pieces, and that is what I look for.

How do you stay in shape?
I’ve had a personal trainer, Amie Young, for about two years. I work out with her at the Baylor Tom Landry fitness center. Running and lifting weights is what I do, because cardiovascular exercise works for me.

What’s your beauty regimen?
I like Shiseido purifying cleansing foam and hydro-balancing toner. I’ve also discovered this great stuff called Cellex-C high potency serum and hydra 5-B complex that I use once a day. It acts as an exfoliator, corrects fine lines, and shrinks my pores. Twice a day I use sea silk oil-free moisturizer. I get them all at Sephora.

In this town, hair rules. We have to know who does yours.
I get my hair done at Orange. Andrea Melton is my colorist, and Theresa Allen is my stylist.

Do you have a signature scent?
I love anything by Jo Malone, but I am currently wearing and loving a jasmine perfume by Carthusia, an Italian fragrance that I got on my honeymoon to Italy.

What’s in your purse at all times?
Kiehl’s lip balm and MAC lipstick in Jest. I love this color because it’s great with my complexion.

What’s your favorite snack?
Well, I crave chocolate! But I will usually have some vanilla yogurt with fruit after the gym.
