Melissa: What is the particular moment you’re most proud of?

Sarah: Besides the birth of my children, I am most proud that I started Cultured Magazine 10 years ago.

Melissa: What is a particularly challenging time in your life you were able to grow from?

Sarah: The most challenging time of my life was when I lost my mother to breast cancer when she was 58. While this is not necessarily a learning lesson it certainly made me grow and become more self-reliant as experiencing the loss of a parent stretches you to the limits of what you’re capable of and ultimately is a reminder to value the time with the ones you love.

Melissa: What is the nicest gift you ever received?

Sarah: My dear friend recently got me a Joan Didion Seth Bogart ceramic for my birthday that sits in a special spot on my living room table at home.

Melissa: What is your particular travel destination?
Sarah: Morocco

Melissa: Favorite meal to cook?

Sarah: Spicy fusilli

Melissa: What particular item in your closet or home that you could never part with?
Sarah: My Chanel suit from 1998
Melissa: What particular thing makes you feel anxious or scared?
Sarah: Deadline and it will always be deadline.
Melissa: What particular thing you would have told your younger self?
Sarah: Lighten up.
