You Complete Me: theSkimm Founders' Sanity Walk

You Complete Me: theSkimm Founders' Sanity Walk(Source: Danielle Weisberg and Carly Zakin, Thinkstock; Art by Tanya Leigh Washington)Ever love a routine so much it makes you feel whole? You’re not alone, which is why we’re having our favorite tastemakers spill what they can’t live without.

Who: Danielle Weisberg and Carly Zakin, @theSkimm
Where: New York City, NY
By Day: As co-founders and co-CEOs of theSkimm, we spend our day running business development and operations. That means everything from interviewing potential hires, doing media appearances to grow our brand, talking to new contacts, and going through partnership and distribution deals.
By Night: We put on our editorial hats to put theSkimm together. We take a break for dinner and to have a life, though. We can be found at Trattoria il Mulino, a great spot by our new office, or on theSkimm HQ couch with a glass of red wine.
Danielle: In the winter, I succomb to the mostly black clothing routine with a pop of red lips. In the summer, I rarely change out of a dress in a bright color. I love wearing bright colors on my toes year round and usually go back and forth between raspberry or lilac colors on my nails.

Carly: Very classic. My favorite color is navy. In the winter, I wear a lot of black, navy, and bright reds. I love a good turtleneck, even though my friends love to make fun of me for it. In the summer, I like to layer a lot of whites and neutrals.

You Complete Me: A Walk Home at Night 
Every night after we Skimm, we walk home from the office together. Rain or shine, polar vortex or no vortex. There is something so refreshing—less so when it’s legitimately freezing—about ending the night with a cold walk home. We usually start walking while decompressing after a long day, brainstorming ideas for the next day, and then transitioning back into friend mode. This wasn’t a ritual either of us planned but started happening very organically, once we moved into an office."
