Say hello to Hayley Dulin, managing editor of Artful Living Magazine. When she's not on deadline putting together a beautiful new issue of Artful Living Magazine, she's traveling the world, wining and dining at her favorite restaurants, walking the Minneapolis lakes or searching for new lip gloss hues and the best greens juice in town! Read on to learn more about her position at AL + what adds extra "pep" to Hayley's step!
1. What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
The people I work with are remarkable. It’s an incredible thing to come to work every day and feel like you are at home. We have a small, dedicated staff along with the best contributors that give it their all to put out a wonderful publication each quarter.
Also, there is nothing more rewarding than the arrival of a magazine fresh off the press. After more than five years and countless editions, I still feel like a kid on Christmas morning when I page through an issue for the first time.
2. Where do you go for inspiration?
I am most influenced by travel. Whether I’m in Duluth or Cannes, I make it a priority to immerse myself in the local culture and always come back from vacation with a notebook full of ideas! I love everywhere from New York to California, London to Paris — among so many other places.
When not on the road for work or fun, I make a point to step outside and enjoy the outdoors. Some of my best ideas come to me while walking the lakes or relaxing on my parents’ patio enjoying a stack of magazines and a glass of wine .
3. What adds pep to your step?
A good night’s sleep. And if that doesn’t happen, I absolutely need coffee!
4. How would you describe your personal style?
I’m pretty classic. I love mixing basics with standout jewelry and accessories. One of my favorite looks is pairing special pieces with cigarette pants or white jeans.
5. What’s the craziest beauty routine or trend you've embraced?
I don’t know if this a trend per se, but from the ages two to five I wore a tutu or slip every day — always accessorized with a belt or bow!
6. How do you spend your Saturdays?
A good Saturday: Waking up early and heading to a morning yoga sculpt class followed by an afternoon relaxing (in the winter) or heading to Lake Minnetonka for some fun and then going out for a night on the town (in the summer)
A bad Saturday: If I had one too many glasses of wine or an extra dirty martini the night before, brunch with friends, most likely with rounds of mimosas, followed by a much-needed afternoon nap.
7. What do you never leave the house without?
Snacks! I always have a few Larabars and nuts on hand. I carry at least a thousand different lip glosses in my makeup bag. I also can’t leave without my iPhone, sunglasses, gum, hand sanitizer, and my Moleskine notebook and pen.
8. What is your favorite Twin Cities hangout?
Marvel Bar for drinks. Anywhere with a patio or rooftop in the summer. McCormick’s in Wayzata in the winter.
