Member Q&A: Lanya Olmsted, Designer, Beauty Blogger, and The Wing Enthusiast
Meet today’s member, @lanyzzz: We love this boss lady’s sense of style, fierce feminism (yes, she’s a bonafide member of cool NYC spot The Wing), and taste for adventure. Best of all, she’s a beauty blogger to boot, so of course we asked for some self-care tips.
Name: Lanya Olmsted Age: 23 Job: UX Designer at Code & Theory (a digital agency)
Tell us about your recent self-care finds. I’m obsessed with beauty and skincare, and have found out that my favorite self-care practice is to apply skincare products (+ masks) while watching my favorite TV show or reading a book. The TV show I’m watching now is on Netflix –The Magicians(gives me Harry Potter vibes), and I am reading “The Sympathizer” by Viet Thanh Nguyen.
A tip I have for skincare is to use retinol – it’s basically anti-acne and anti-wrinkle. A miracle ingredient. Look up Retinol Reform. Start out slow, though. Use it once a week for while, then build up.
What’s the last thing that made you laugh? This sloth video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ba7rRfKIHxU. I watch this classic when I’m feeling distressed about the times we’re living in now.
