Meet Allie Berman
Allie is from a slow seaside town in New England. She's learning, and expanding her world everyday, on a quest for something she can't live without. Allie likes the feeling of being part of something greater than herself-- and music and NYC do that for her. Mostly, Allie needs a mic stand to do karaoke so she can drop it like Freddie Mercury.
on her daily routine
my favorite part of the day is drinking an americano and being alone with my brain
on her move to New York
I'm from a beach town in New Hampshire. I moved to NYC when I was 18 and studied art history, but that was short lived. Then I modeled full time. I was pretty anti-modeling, but being 5'11" it's inescapable here. I'm always looking for the next thing to sink my teeth into.
on her style
I hate shopping. If I'm feeling up for it, I much prefer sifting through vintage shops. My aesthetic is minimal. Levi's, tee shirts, and babydoll dresses.
on her apartment
I just want a place to go at the end of the day that's comfortable. The best furniture is from Craigstlist and antique spots outside of the city, but majority is from the Swedes at Ikea.
on her beauty routine
I wash my face twice a day and always moisturize, I don't care how many shots. Exfoliate and face mask once a week. I wash my hair twice a week or so, and use coconut oil for everything. I use as much natural product as possible. Smith’s rosebud salve. For makeup, Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon in Redwood Forest and Katy Kat Eye mascara.
