NAME: ROXI BARRON
OCCUPATION: ASSOCIATE COPYWRITER
Briefly, Tell us who you are what you do?
I create content for various TV shows at a social media agency in NYC. As someone who watches TV obsessively I think it’s safe to say I love what I do. I live in Brooklyn with my husband, where we spend too much money on brunch and video games. (I never know what to say in these bios, it’s why I don’t really have one on Insta) eek.
What do your mornings look like?
Dark + quiet. My apartment doesn’t get much natural light, which makes me miss living in LA even more. I try to stay quiet so I don’t wake my husband up. Somewhere in between applying makeup + blow drying my hair he starts to make me coffee which brightens my mood. We talk at the table, I check my e-mail, scan through Instagram, get dressed and hop on the train!
How do you calm yourself?
Honestly anything time consuming that doubles as a beauty regimen, like a sugar scrub or face mask. I’ll also talk to my husband. He’s a really great listener.
What’s your favorite medium for writing?
I try to keep a small notebook in my purse. I love writing in it with my favorite black pen. If I get an idea at work I usually just log into my blog and start drafting there.
What are three things you love to do alone?
Shopping. There’s less pressure to stay or leave without a friend with you. I like taking my time, I hate rushing.
Cooking. I don’t do it often but it feels good to eat something you made, or watch someone enjoy something you made.
Cleaning. It’s so therapeutic to me, I just zone out.
Where do you go to look for inspiration?
Instagram, the subway, and my friends.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Keeping Up With The Kardashians. If they weren’t entertaining they wouldn’t be famous.
What do you listen to when you are sad?
I generally don’t listen to music when I’m sad, but if I do it’s usually Bon Iver or something similar.
What do you listen to when you are happy?
Disclosure. I have so many happy memories associated with almost every song off of every one of their albums.
Can’t leave the house without…
Lip balm + lipstick. One of the worst feelings is having chapped lips + realizing you left your lip balm at home.
I don’t think I’ll ever be able to give an answer for this, it’s too difficult!
Pride and Prejudice (2005)
Obsessed with everything in this movie. The sisterly dynamic, the romance, Elizabeth’s independence, the feminism, the clothes, the cinematography, the score, it’s just perfect.
Friday Night Lights. Just thinking about it now makes me want to watch it all over again. #TexasForever
Place to shop?
McNally Jackson Books. If you gave me a $20 bill that’s the first place I’d go. The only problem is choosing between a new book or new paper goods.
Place to drink coffee?
Gasoline Alley. When I don’t make coffee at home, I stop here and get a cup of black coffee to go, usually with a donut. It’s tiny but they make the best coffee and it’s such a good place to people watch.
Between The Trees, a local band from my hometown.
Last concert you went too?
I saw Father John Misty at a music festival in Paris on my honeymoon. Pure bliss.
What’s the one word/phrase you are guilty of using too much?
“Yaaassssssss.” I started saying it ironically to be funny but it’s somehow crept into my vocabulary lol.
What’s the last Google search on your iPhone?
How to beat the mummy on Banjo-Kazooie. I know I shouldn’t be cheating but I could not figure it out and it was making me mad haha.
“Rock Your Body” – Justin Timberlake
What does the last text in your phone say?
The emoji with the bead of sweat on it’s forehead.
“Every pizza is a personal pizza if you try hard enough and believe in yourself.”
And tell us one thing you think we should be getting into (a book, blog, web series, song, etc.?)
Watch Making A Murderer on Netflix. It’s seriously insane.
