Celebrity Stylist Mia Morgan Talks Guilty Pleasures

What’s your favorite thing to do in your free time?

I love gardening. I have a beautiful backyard in Chelsea which is such a luxury in NYC, and I take full advantage of it planting a great garden every spring. It’s so gratifying to watch the flowers grow, and I really enjoy getting my hands in the dirt. The best perk of having such wonderful outdoor space is getting to entertain often, especially in the summer. It’s a great way to stay connected and treat friends to being outside in nature.

What do you do to find calm during crazy-filled fashion days?

I go to a class called Intensati at Equinox.  It’s super high energy, but I feel great when I leave.  The woman who started the class is Patricia Moreno and she’s a real inspiration.  I also go to the spa.  I love getting a massage and go once a week.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

I love sweets: cupcakes, chocolate and ice cream.  I can never have too much chocolate.

What was your last indulgence?

I just got back from Istanbul and indulged in many of the local delicacies there. I especially loved the Turkish Delight, dried fruits, nuts and kebabs. I ate whatever I felt like eating and experienced amazing local cuisine. The restaurants were fantastic. Two of my favorite discoveries were Simple Restaurant and Al Jamal. At Al Jamal we had a huge traditional feast while watching belly dancers. They even had male belly dancers! Talk about fun!

I also did a ton of shopping. The Grand Bazaar was amazing. I got all sorts of local goodies like leather floor cushions and mosaic lamps. There was a fabulous jewelry store in the Sapphire Mall where I indulged my love of big statement rings.

What are you doing this weekend?

I’ll be spending it at the gym working off all the Turkish Delight!

I eat fashion for breakfast. Cashmere sweaters taste funny.
