Daphne Oz is an Emmy award-winning television host, New York Times best-selling author, and co-owner of Loum Beauty. Despite all the success of the multi-hyphenate, one word sums up her personality best: relatable. 

That was especially evident during our recent phone call when she shared her morning routine for our fourth installment of 'Wake up with...'. Even with some noisy neighbors and a bit of construction, our conversation quickly had a friendly feel.

Coming from a large Turkish family herself, Daphne instantly related to my larger-than-life Italian family. She enthusiastically embraced every topic of discussion with the same warm and friendly candor she's best known for.

Whether she's inspiring Instagram-worthy indulgences or motivating fans to work out (on the best exercise bikes) – Daphne is a vehicle for inspiration.
