Daisy Doris May, 28, is an actress, voguer, and festival producer. She has the most infectious energy of anyone I’ve ever met, and does a killer cat eye on herself.
What makes you feel “well?”
A night in. A bubble bath. A bit of — I’m just going to say it — Britney. Maybe I’m even watching Queer Eye. OH— and I’ve exfoliated and moisturized. Then I feel WELL.
What does "consciousness" mean to you?
Admitting when you’re not okay; having the ability to talk about the fact that you’re actually struggling. Being aware of the low points, and trying to be okay with it.
Oh my god, so many. Sugar. And interrupting people. I’m sorry if I’ve interrupted you. Have I interrupted you?
Crunch Corners. Those fucking give me loads of pleasure. And tiny people. No matter what mood you’re in…my little niece or nephews, when I watch them, it makes me realize every bit of drama we stress about is so ridiculous.
Drug of choice?
Mushrooms. You can have your whole journey, and then there’s no crash.
Favorite hangover food?
Pho, spicy as a mother. But if I’m going to be really naughty, straight up stodge. Pasta, mozzarella. A bit of tomato sauce.
There’s a high point of every day. There’s something…or, someone I’ll meet, something that happens every day. That’s what I strive for. That one moment of like…do you know what I mean? It would be a shame to have one peak, because then it’s done. It’s just a memory.
When I was a mute. I couldn’t speak for two weeks. It was when I was in drama school — had to have my nodules lasered off. I went to speech therapy and physio. To not be able to communicate, and to effectively completely change your path…it took away all my power. But that time was when I learned the most about me.
Best seduction tactic?
My lava lamp.
Best advice for heartbreak?
Get together with your girls. Wine, dine, and Dutty Whine.
Do you like yourself?
I like the fact that I love people. I fall in love with people every day.
