Bi-Coastal and Beautiful

Annelise Peterson, the former PR Director at Valentino, entrepreneur and licensed Yogini, now serves as Director of Client Relations at Net-A-Porter. The Blonde, Ivy-League Beauty sits down with Page38 to discuss keeping a balanced life, happiness as an addiction and gives us a glimpse of Bi-Coastal living.

As a woman who does it all, how do you make fitness and healthy living a priority?

I believe very strongly in a mind/body connection. A healthy body – which comes from daily exercise and mindful eating – leads to a healthy attitude and a happier life. Happiness is both addictive and contagious.

Do you follow a fitness philosophy?

I like to do things that don’t overly exhaust my body – there is a balance between working hard and beating yourself up! Fitness should be fun and enjoyable.

What’s your workout of the moment?

Physique 57 and the elliptical machine. I am also taking ballet classes.

How do you start your morning?

With a Green Tea or a Chai Latte.

Can you list some rituals that get you through the day? Face care, juicing, workout, recovery, maintenance, supplements?

I start my day with a coffee or tea and the paper – and I won’t travel anywhere without 37 Extreme Actives, which is the best face cream I have ever used and worth the price tag.

What’s your signature look?

I don’t like to feel over-styled – my signature is an effortless blend of So Cal and New York: chic nonchalance but with attention to a strong elegant line, proportion and fit.

What are four things you can’t live without?

  1. Capri pants
  2. My iPhone
  3. A Bottle of Water
  4. Workout sneakers with pink accents. Workout sneakers are never cute, but pink makes them a little more feminine.

What’s the most exciting thing that’s happening for you right now?

I am excited to wake up every morning! I know – annoying.

What empowers you to live your best life?
