Is it awkward if I take this moment to confess my long-standing girl crush on Laney Crowell? ‘Cause it’s almost impossible not to develop one within minutes of meeting this chic NYC-based beauty who doles out warmth and wisdom in equal measure. Laney and I first crossed paths through a mutual friend many years ago when she’d just joined Estée Lauder to run their social media and editorial content, and I was immediately struck by her business savvy, as well as the style she brought to every aspect of life in a seemingly effortless way. Now she’s bringing that same unfussy know-how to the wellness space in her newly-launched site, The Moment. I’m sure you’ll be just as taken as I am by its clean beauty recos and healthy living tips. Laney invited us into her light-drenched Sag Harbor home to talk olive oil ice cream, her hippie-approved playlist, and why a cheese plate is always a good idea.
