7 THINGS ABOUT ME
A few months ago I’ve become a vegetarian. At the moment I am a happy lacto-ovo veggie and enjoying the way I feel and look – my skin got so much better!
I’ve been using the same perfume for the last 5 years or so. It’s my comfort blanket and the fragrance is like a part of me now.
If I were to choose a very special ball gown, I’d want to have this Dolce&Gabbana dress from their Spring 2009 RTW collection. This is my fairy-tale dress.
Sometimes I really want to dye my hair into a gorgeous shade of autumn red. I was a redhead once and loved it, but then decided to go back to my natural colour and I guess, at the end nature knows best…
My favourite artists are Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres and Dali. Ingres' works are incredible and I think I was drawn to his art because the paintings looked so alive and it was hard to believe that somebody is so talented to be able to paint like that.
Dali awakes something inside me. I was lucky enough to see some of his original works and was surprised how emotional and intense this experience was!
We paid more for the shoes I wore on my wedding day than for the entire wedding itself.
I watched “The Devil Wears Prada ” at least 10 times. And I read the book, too. I am watching the movie again right now while typing this.
