In Balance With: Alexis Wolfer [Q&A]
Alexis Wolfer (AW) is the founder and editor-in-chief of The Beauty Bean, an online women’s magazine that offers women its beauty, fitness, and wellness tips. She is also the author of The Recipe For Radiance: Discover Beauty’s Best-Kept Secrets In Your Kitchen and Radiant Bride: The Beauty, Diet, Fitness, And Fashion Plan For Your Big Day.
What we love most about Alexis is that she has devoted her career to helping women feel better about themselves. Fortunately, we were able to sit with her and have her share a few quick tips and insights on how she finds balance in her life.
I find balance in...
AW: A long walk by the beach or a dance party (usually in my kitchen, in my underwear, by myself!)
In the morning I like to...
AW: caffeinate and sweat!
Beauty obsession of the moment…
AW: Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Sweet Violet. It's not a new obsession, but a recently revived one!
One piece of health advice you would give to your younger self?
AW: Don't weigh yourself. Ever. It does nothing other than measure your gravitational pull. It doesn't measure your health, beauty, or sexiness. And it just makes you crazy. It's not worth it.
What makes you crack up with laughter?
AW: Donald Trump (it is a joke, right?!)
Healthy habit you’d like to adopt?
AW: A standing desk or at least doing a better or job of walking around while on calls/throughout the day.
Your guilty pleasure...
AW: An 80s cover band. ANY 80s cover band. Or a Criminal Minds marathon, in which case I'll see you in 12 hours!
What was the last song you sang in the shower?
AW: Ugh. "Love Yourself" by Justin Bieber, which I'm embarrassed to type, but, well, 2016 is the year I fully became a Belieber...#SorryNotSorry
I like to work up a sweat by…
AW: SoulCycle-ing, boxing, yoga-ing, pilates-ing, and more! Oh, and at ShapeHouse, an infrared urban sweat lodge in LA!
My super power is…
AW: My girl squad: the women in my life who push me, support me, and ground me, spearheaded by my Mom.
Cause closest to your heart?
AW: Women's health, especially as it pertains to eating disorders and access to reproductive healthcare.
Netflix What? Chill with who?
AW: Making A Murderer (solely because I feel left out of EVERY conversation these days since I haven't yet seen it!). Chill with my dog Zoe :)
