Get Intimate: Susan Alexandra

In our previous post we got intimate with Ruthie Hanan. This week we take a peek into the life of Susan Alexandra- artist, jewelry maker, and boss babe.      

What's your dream superpower? To heal. To be able to heal open wounds and broken hearts.  

What are you currently working on? I am working on finishing a new jewelry collection and a bunch of cool projects that are designed to create and promote community and support. When I moved here I was so lost and felt like I was drowning in unknowns. I wish I had the community that I have now created for myself. That's who I'm doing this for-my current self and the girl I was when I first moved here.      

What part of your body do you love the most? My butt! And my hands-the ultimate creators of my own life.  

Whats your favorite True&Co lingerie? Moon Mist Balconette. First of all, the color is called "Moon Mist"", which it totally is. It's so pretty and french and lovely.      

What's your secret obsession/guilty pleasure? Celebrity gossip, exotic perfumes, nut butters, Hawaiin Poke bowls and obscure chocolate bars.  

What are your two favorite things in the world? My chiauhuahau/ pug mix, Pigeon and my wonderful Mama. So those are living creatures, not things...I love my phone and my bed.      

What's the last book you read? I'm constantly checking in with two books that are stored on my phone. "The Untethered Soul" and "Dear Sugar". I'll just flip to a random page and get inspired.  

What advice would you give your younger self? My mom always repeats "you are where you're meant to be." This just reinforces my belief that you need to trust where you are and trust the weave of life. Also: speak to yourself like you are speaking to someone you love.      

What's your favorite thing about yourself? The older I get, the easier I am able to identify and discover things about myself that I actually like. This is what aging does to you! I admire my ability to find connection with people and make people feel heard and understood. I love that I am able to connect people and instill confidence in others. I also admire the way I earnestly give and feel empathy for others. Also-I'm psychic.  

When are you happiest? I am happiest when I am cozy in bed as snow falls outside. I am happiest under the sun with a giant glass of crushed ice and 25 copies of US weekly. I am happiest in the company of my long time friends, laughing and making prank calls.      

What does #thefutureisfemale mean to you?   It means that women together move mountains. It means we are stronger together. Women share the abikity to truly feel empathy and vulnerability. When we tune into these emotions, we are able to do incredible work.   To learn more about Susan head to her Instagram @susan_alexandra.
