–JAMES J. SPINA
IN HIGH SCHOOL I... was a cheerleader. Go Bears!
I OFTEN CONFIDE IN… my aesthetician. She is a great listener and always puts things in perspective for me.
MY FIRST CAR WAS… a used champagne colored VW Rabbit. I saved for three years to buy it. It used to break down all the time. I was constantly on the side of the road waiting for someone to pick me up.
THE BOOK NEAR MY BED RIGHT NOW IS… You Don’t Look Fat, You Look Crazy. An Unapologetic Guide to Being Ambitchious by Ashley Longshore. Ashley is amazing and an amazing artist. I met her at an event in Bergdorf Goodman. It’s a great read and totally relatable.
BLUE MAKES ME THINK OF… the Caribbean Sea in Jamaica… my happy place!
I LOVE SAYING I’M… vegan… for the animals, my health and the planet!
I CAN’T WAIT FOR… sakura season in Tokyo. The cherry blossoms in Japan are magical.
I CAN’T PASS UP A SHOP THAT… sells anything vintage… clothes, jewelry, glasses, furniture, record albums, cars, etc. I feel so inspired!
I WAS ON THIS FLIGHT ONCE WHERE… a standard poodle sat in a business class seat across from me. He looked like he belonged there.
