The #CUSHNIEactive Series. Moments from the bold women who inspire us to be unstoppable.


Famous for her stunning voice and head-turning physique, the California native and all-around superstar never ceases to amaze even the toughest critics. We managed to squeeze into her hectic schedule to find out just how she does it all.

What are your go-to workouts or favorite activities in LA?
I absolutely love to hike so my go to trails in LA are Temescal Canyon and Fryman Canyon.

Do you have any pre-photoshoot or daily rituals?
Most def! My pre-photoshoot ritual is detoxing at Shape House in Santa Monica. You lay in an Infrared Bed, sweat for 55 minutes, and burn between 800-1600 calories per session.

What fuels your day?
WATER. I drink water all day and everywhere I go I have a water bottle by my side

As a woman who's always busy working, traveling, etc. – how do you keep your life balanced?
Routine keeps me sane which means time management is of the most importance ... Even when my schedule gets hectic on the road I make time for my routine .. stretching, working out, masking while I have a vocal lesson. I always make time for myself with no regret.


Your complexion is in a constant state of “glow”- What’s your skincare secret?
Rose hip oil changed my life, to be honest. There's a misconception that facial oil makes you break out but it's quite the opposite. Oil diminishes fine lines, gives me a bronze glow and leaves my skin hydrated.

When you come to NYC, are there any spots that are an absolute must for you?
I love Dover Street Market, vintage shopping, Prince Street Pizza and of course, I'm a fan of NYC nightlife.

When do you feel your strongest, your most confident?
I feel extremely confident while working out. My workouts require an immense amount of focus, strength and consistency.

Name one thing about yourself that most people don’t know.
I'm very shy. Most would not assume I am quiet at first, especially based on my online presence, but I'm an introvert until you get to know me.


What’s your favorite color?
Red and Black

What’s your favorite cocktail?
Moscow Mule

Who is your #1 style muse?
I pull inspiration from certain eras... a mix of the 80's and 90's.

What’s your favorite CUSHNIE Activewear piece?
The CUSHNIE Venus Crop Top... so comfortable and stylish!

What was your all-time favorite moment wearing CUSHNIE? What happened?
I wore the Cindy Dress to the premiere of Live by Night ... Not only was the dress perfection but I got to watch my fiancé kill his first acting role. It was a very proud moment :)

(Fill in the blank)
Every girl needs a LBD ... you can never go wrong with a go-to little black dress xo!
