How does a 5X platinum Grammy-nominated songwriter-slash-musical powerhouse who’s written for Beyoncé, Selena Gomez, Kelly Clarkson (she’s the mastermind behind “Stronger”), Justin Bieber, and Cardi B., to name a few, stay centered? For 31-year-old Ali Tamposi, it’s the magic of Malibu, splurging on surfboards and sunsets.
“Splurging on surfboards is my kryptonite, but the most special thing to me is spending time with friends for a beach bonfire at sunset.”
“My engagement ring by Raffi Fine Jewelry, Proforce Karate Pants and Goodtime Charley’s Vintage T-shirts are my go-tos. And anything and everything by TATA-LA.”
“For my morning ritual, I drink a glass of warm water with ginger and lemon, meditate, journal, attend my Zoom AA meeting, and do some kind of workout—either surf, Peloton or a hike. Currently, I end the night by watching The Sopranos with my fiancé Roman, doing my skin-care routine and reading until I pass out.”
“When I wake up, some non-negotiables are to kiss my man and smother my pup, then wash my face with Dr. Madh Cream Cleanser. After that, some Nousha The Reset Oil ($110) and skinbetter Trio Rebalancing Moisture Treatment ($140). At night, it’s a gel cleanser, skinbetter Even Tone ($145), skinbetter Boosting Cream ($85) and Nousha’s The Reset Oil. For my hair, always Oribe.”
“Veganism! I feel so alive and energetic ever since I started, it’s something I wish I’d done a long time ago.”
