My Universe: Nadia Josse

Fetching and French might perfectly describe Nadia Josse, but they also leave much unsaid. The PR manager at Chanel, of course, has impeccable style and charm in spades, but she also has a deep wellness practice and dives headfirst into ritual and radical health. Nadia shares our our love for everything from fashion and food to yoga, vedic meditation and, of course, CAP Beauty. Naturally we wanted to journey inside her universe. It's fetching, French and flush with life.

Designers Chanel, Isabel Marrant and Ulla Johnson with some Reformation and Acne! I also like Love Shack Fancy and DOEN in the summer.

What’s your sign Leo

Workout(s) Tracy Anderson Method and Bari

Yoga studio/teacher I practice at home, I got my 200hr certification from Sky Ting last fall with Krissy and Chloe as my mentors and they are amazing. I like to practice once to twice a week at home. If Jivamukti yoga was in Brooklyn I would go every day. My fave teachers there are Rima and Matthew.

Do you meditate Yes

Meditation teacher, venue or app I took a TM course with Ben Turshen. He’s awesome. I love anything with Thom Knoles. My dream would be to go to one of his retreats in India.

Experts in your corner (nutritionists, trainers, coaches, etc.) Gil Jacobs who’s a colon hydrotherapist who taught me more on health than anyone else. Mzia Shiman for facials, she’s a real skin whisperer and Shamara Bondaroff from SB Skin for microcurrent. I like to follow Nicole Berrie @bonberi and my friend Louisa from @rawandroasted on Instagram for their healthy recipes and tips. I also see Ally Bogard, she’s an amazing spiritual coach (and yoga teacher), she’s magical.

Morning rituals First thing is a 20 min TM. Then I give a kiss to my fiancé who’s asleep (I wake up around 6am). I have 1 shot of raw aloe vera juice and after that I mix together the juice of a whole lemon with warm water and apple cider vinegar that I sip on during my work out. After that I do a 45 minute to 1 hour Tracy Anderson workout at home. That usually sets me up nicely for the day. I also dry brush everyday before my shower. I actually got mine at CAP and use the Living Libations essential oil for lymph health.

Evening rituals I usually turn off all my devices 1 hour before sleep (I try! Not always a success). I chat with my fiancé we like to just hang out in bed and talk about anything and everything. He makes me laugh a lot! I like to burn some palo santo and spray my CAP Beauty CAPtivator energy mist! I love love the smell (you guys should make a perfume!). Then I read but since I’m usually so exhausted I read a page and I’m already asleep.

Tea or tonic drink Tea! Love a Genmaicha

Wellness idol Gil Jacobs, Natalia Rose

Diet you follow Food Combining, life changing.

Guilty pleasure Dark chocolate and red wine

Toothpaste I would love to say a non toxic toothpaste but this is the one thing I can’t switch to…I like a good ol’ Colgate

Skin care Love Drunk Elephant (Marula Oil and Babyfacial mask), Biologique Recherche (Lait VIP, Lotion P50 and Masque Vivant) and Marie Veronique (Soothing Serum). For body I love Pai and Butter Elixir.

Soap Pai shower gel

Lip color None I like a natural lip or maybe a pink from RMS lip to cheek! If I do a red lip I like Elegante from Chanel

Perfume or Cologne Oil! I live for the ILARY roll on – smells like heaven! You can buy online.

Who cuts your hair Rishi at David Mallet in Paris and no one else. Not only he’s cool and handsome but he gets it right away!
