Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Perfect happiness is feeling healthy, loved, inspired, free and with a plane ticket to an exotic locale in my hand! Throw in side-splitting laughter, friends and family, key lime pie, a 99.9 percent discount at Chanel and a sidewalk cafe in Paris and I may never leave.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. I say "that's fabulous!" and "that's heinous!" far too often.
