Miu Miu, doughnuts and philosophy—what Sami Gayle of Blue Bloods lives for.

Favorite Designer:

Miu Miu. I love their '60s, Breakfast at Tiffany's vibe!

Can't-Live-Without Beauty Product:

Russie Blanche Cellular Youth Serum and [Siberian Petals] Moisturizing Mask – Cooling Effect. As someone with extremely sensitive skin, this combo keeps my skin breakout-free.

Signature Scent:

Eau de Sweat. By Sami. Kidding! Clive Christian's "C" for Women. This was my first perfume. I bought it in London while shooting a film there, and wearing it reminds me of rowing in Hyde Park.

Beloved Book:

"On Friendship" from Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics. This section completely changed my perspective on how I view relationships and love. As an avid reader, however, I'd recommend the entire thing!

Everyday Bag:

My Model M from Great Bag Co. I could probably drive over this bag with a truck and no damage would be done. It holds pounds of books for school and is the perfect, chic, knock-around bag for work, studying and play!

Must-See Movie:

Boudu Saved from Drowning. This social satire of 1930s France is light, poignant, cheeky and especially cute for a date night.

Essential Jewelry:

A pair of studs! They are classic, elegant and a simple match with everything. To spice it up a bit, I mix and match some. I'll wear a heart in one ear and a smiley face in the other.

Go-To Shoes:

Ballet flats. I'm always running around NYC and my top priority is comfort.

Hidden Hobby:

I love to knit! It helps me de-stress and has the added benefit of creating finished products for my loved ones.

Biggest Indulgence:

Watching TV every Friday night while eating doughnuts! I'm kind of a plain-glazed type of girl, but I'll settle for any flavor really.
