I’ve recently received a Stylish Blogger award from Allie of Desire*Design*Delight, so it's time for me to share seven facts about myself...
I bought my very first issue of Vogue in November 2001. Purely because Linda was on a cover and I’ve always loved her.
I love cooking. I can cook pretty much anything, but I adore making desserts and risotto. I am famous for my muffins, crème caramel and Tiramisu gateaux cake. At the moment I am learning to make macaroons.
I love travelling and staying in hotels because, as I’ve always said, when your life is packed in a suitcase you get the best picks.
To my husband’s
horror surprise I sometimes drink milk from a bottle.
Books are one of the essential elements of my life. I cannot imagine myself without my little library. I've got this from my mum. My parents always encouraged my love for reading and bought me as many books as I asked for. I remember I’d always get a book a as a birthday present. I had a massive bookcase filled with my own books, but very few toys. I used to read anything and everything I could find in a house. These days I have a few absolute favourites including Nabokov's Lolita, Françoise Sagan, Paolo Coelho and Bulgakov, Russian poetry and other Russian classics (but I don't like Dostoevsky). I also love reading fashion and recipe books.
