I have a luck gold evil eye necklace.
If you could only pack five things with you, what would they be?
My lucky necklace, my CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in "Hot," my skates of course, my skating dresses and a bottle of hairspray. But if I were packing for a deserted island, I would bring sunscreen, a water purifier, something to start a fire with, my sister and something for protection.
How much lip balm do you go through in a competition season?
Tons of lip balm and lipstick. Tubes and tubes. I don't think I've ever counted!
What celebrity would you want to play you in the movie of your life?
Chloe Grace Moretz or Jennifer Lawrence.
If you ever get a 15-minute break, what would you do?
I would sit on the couch with a cappuccino and just relax.
What is your guiltiest pleasure?
What is your warm-up jam of the moment?
"Dark Horse" by Katy Perry is my jam right now.

Definitely my puppy, that's for sure. His name is Yoshi and he's a Japanese Chin.
What is something you forgot to pack?
I totally forgot extra towels.
Did you buy any souvenirs in Sochi?
They have a Bosco store, so I got some cool fingerless gloves. I'm also trading tons of pins to bring back to show everyone. I also picked up some cool Sochi Snickers Bars. They're the Russian Sochi version of Snickers.
Other than your own event and experience, what's been your favorite moment at the Games so far?
Probably Opening Ceremonies or watching the Women's Hockey Game.
