Today we are introducing you to Romy Mitchell as our BethieLife Woman Crush. Looking at Romy, you would think she is a Vogue cover model, but there’s brains behind all that beauty. Romy is actually an anesthesiologist in private practice with Methodist Hospital. Having her in the operating room would sure lessen the pain. Welcome, Romy!
I grew up in Houston (West University and South Hampton).
If you were stranded on a desert island, what three beauty products would you like to have with you?
Regenica Stem-Cell Sunscreen, Tweezers and Lip Sugar lip balm
Definitely my mother (she was a ballet teacher for many years). Also, my grandmother who loved long palazzo pants and long gowns. Also, Trish Westcoat, who is the genius behind Haute Hippie.
Long naps! Really nice wine, Chanel purses and 2-hour massages.
Definitely to always maintain financial security (especially no credit card debt), and don’t necessarily believe what people tell you – let them prove their loyalty by their actions.
Max and Julie’s Brasserie, Tootsies (Chris Goins and team are amazing), 13 Degrees Celcius and Brasserie 19 (my home away from home).
PADI scuba certification (Great Barrier Reef dive with friends), also considering achieving my yoga teacher-training to go deeper into my practice, African safari in the Serengeti, a visit to Morocco, also a potential local media project in the works as well as collaborating on a medical column for a local publication.
Yoga, weights/cardio with trainer, hiking traveling, lunch and museums with friends, dinner (sometimes very long dinners with friends).
Max and Julie’s Brasserie is one of my hidden gems – love this place, also 13 Degrees Celcius wine bar and Etro 80’s Dance Club in Montrose.
Luxurylink.com, eluxury.com, bethielife.com, neimanmarcus.com. Also, I’m an ITunes addict!
Watch your caloric intake with a food journal, stay hydrated, Hot Yoga to detox at least 3 times a week.
My yoga practice, nightly chats with my mother, fresh juices (kale, celery, apple, watermelon, etc).
So weird – waking up blind – I’ve been terrified of losing my eyesight since I was a child – and I’m very nearsighted already! I am sure there is some meaning behind this involving other fears or inhibitions that I have.
I love Maui, Florence, Italy and Aspen, Colorado. I also love Santa Monica – there are too many to name!
An art dealer, art teacher, yoga instructor, life coach, psychiatrist or professional surfer. But let me also add professional barrel racer or tango dancer..I think I’m a little too tall for those, but hey a girl can dream right?!
I’ve been hugely into historical fiction lately – especially settings at the height of the Second World War and the time directly after in Berlin, Morocco, Madrid and Lisbon. I just finished the novel “City of Women” by David Gillham and before that “The Time In Between” by Maria Duenas. Both extremely colorful and delightful page-turners. Sad and dark, but at the same time passionate and hope-inspiring. I haven’t seen any movies lately, but love to see small independent films at the River Oaks Theatre – I’ve been going there since high school. Also, all the self-improvement books by Baron Baptiste – he’s a genius and incredibly inspiring.
I fall and stumble ALL THE TIME – especially walking up and down stairs. I have small feet for my amazon height so I think this throws me off a little.
