Tell us a bit about yourself!
When did you start food blogging on Instagram and what inspired you to start PS.NY?
What are the biggest challenges and greatest rewards of being a food/lifestyle blogger?
Your red poodle, Cookie has certainly risen to Insta fame. I think the question on everyone's mind is- how do you get him to do those very cute poses and cooperate so well for photos?
Does Cookie do any dog modelling apart from his work on PS.NY?
Cookie became quite popular in 2015 and was featured on various TV and radio shows and we had many brand collaborations. It became quite overwhelming for us and I decided to pull back. I cancelled a lot of photoshoots and events because I’m not really interested in making Cookie a star, especially because he's quite shy by nature and he's never really liked crowds.
What are some things you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Your photos are always styled so nicely, what tips and tricks can you share to assist in creating such great images?
You’re lucky enough to live in lively New York! What is your favourite thing about living there and where is your favourite place to eat?
What is your favourite thing to eat in your Coconut Bowls?
Smoothies and granola with fruits and various toppings.
