In keeping with MM.LaFleur’s philosophy that women have #BetterThingsToDo than shop, we present our new questionnaire—a snapshot of some of those Better Things. Here, we kick things off with our CEO and co-founder, Sarah LaFleur.

Where do you go to buckle down? Anywhere with a pair of headphones. 

Where do you go to relax? Anywhere with a glass of whiskey. 

What’s the approximate time between when your alarm goes off and when you get out of bed? 10 minutes?

What’s your ideal way to start a Monday morning? A run on the Hudson River with my pup, Ruggles, a good cup of coffee, and a copy of the Wall Street Journal.
