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.

  2. I love that you put your best feature as being your brain and I equally hate clothes that are a size too small. Ruin my day/ week/month.

  3. @Anna, the shoes were Vicini, I actually posted a pic of them on my facebook page and here a few months ago. :) And just in case you are wondering - our wedding was a very simple and small (apart from the shoes), but nevertheless very special.

  4. @Sarah - decided to go for the brain as it seems to be the only thing that improves with age, the rest tends to head south :)))

  8. It's so much fun to know more about you. That Dolce & Gabbana dress is to die for! I find it very funny that you spent more on the shoes than your whole wedding – love it! I also watch 'The Devil Wears Prada' regularly. It's definitely one of my favourites and always makes me laugh; Meryl Streep is priceless.

    Thank you so much for passing the awards on to me. I never blog about these awards but I do appreciate them.

  13. I've missed this one the week I was away, but I'm catching up. ;) So you paid more for the shoes than on the entire wedding! That's a true fashion lover speaking and acting. Totally see eye to eye on this one. :) I'm thinking of becoming a vegetarian. In fact I only eat fish from time to time, I stopped eating chicken a few months ago and any other kind of meat about 15 years ago. Meryl Streep is the best actress of our times and I've read the book and seen the movie a few times. ;)
