A Look @ US : Cofounder & CEO Polina Veksler

Posted by Lucy Mellon on

Today we're talking favorite travel spots, celebrity crushes, and last meals with CEO & Cofounder Polina Veksler. 


Book on my nightstand: Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy. I’m rereading some of the classics and trying to get away from the madding crowds myself.

Playing on my Spotify: Whatever is playing on the Coffeehouse playlist. It’s just soothing background music that helps me work.

On my Netflix queue: Shetland - it’s  a detective mystery set on Shetland Island. I’m obsessed.

Favorite travel spot: Queenstown, New Zealand. It’s just one of the most beautiful places in the world.


In my beauty regimen: Sleep - which I get precious little of these days; and water  - which I don’t drink nearly enough of.

Words to live by: Bite off more than you can chew, and chew it.

How I procrastinate: I don’t. 

Celebrity crush: Bruno Mars.  

Favorite smell: My husband’s cooking.

Favorite sound: My son laughing.

Last meal on earth: Chicken wings and beer.

Favorite movie: Coming to America.

Favorite art spot: MoMA.

Guilty pleasure: Binge-watching Law & Order. The theme song is also my ringtone...

Last app I opened on my phone: Not really an app but I use FaceTime constantly to speak to my husband and son because I travel so much.

Favorite Instagram account: Universal Standard - obviously ;)

Favorite Universal Standard piece: The Hudson Cape - I practically live in mine.
