I’ve recently received a Stylish Blogger award from Allie of Desire*Design*Delight – thank you so much for thinking of me, darling! This is, actually, a very special award because it was created by Evi who I adore to pieces.
According to the authorities, the "rules" are to:
- Link back to the person who awarded you
- Share 7 things about yourself
- Award 10 great bloggers
- Contact those bloggers and tell them about the award
And so it’s time for me to share 7 little 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’ve graduated from music school and play piano. Although I think I’d need a bit of practice now.
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.
I love dogs and absolutely adore my little cocker spaniel, he is my baby.
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.
In my turn I would like to pass this award onto these stylish ladies:
- my darling Sofie at Modediktat
- Anna of Anna Saccone / The Style Diet
- Anya at Couture Millinery Atelier
- Sarah at Sarah Klassen Haute Design
- Fanny at The Fashion Mom
- Ada at Classiq
- Rachel at Inspiration in Italy
- Yelena at All Glam Things
- CC at Couture Carrie
- Elena at Vasilieva
I hope you won’t mind accepting this award and the fact that I’ve created some home work for you, my darling girls.
