Favorite Things

Not one to be pinned down, my tastes are eclectic, far-ranging, and always upscale.

I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours…

FOOD: Sushi & Pizza

LIBATIONS: Champagne, in particular Billecart-Salmon Brut

SCENT: I’m a fan of more woodsy scents - those with notes of sandalwood and sage; with accents of vanilla and leather

PERFUME: Straight to Heaven White Crystal, by Kilian

Destinations

I love traveling with suitors, with a suitcase full of bikinis and books. Let’s create our own paradise?

Palm Springs
Kauai
Las Vegas
Sayulita, Mexico
St. Barth’s
Aspen

Activities

I’m somewhat of an adrenaline junkie, as you’ll soon be able to tell. I also adore ballet (both performing and watching), and live music always gets my heart racing.

Snowboarding
Hiking
Pilates
Driving supercars at the track
Table tennis

Blossoms

It may be somewhat of a cliché, but fresh flowers really are the way to a woman’s heart. Filling my New York apartment with beautiful bouquets simply fills me with joy!

I’m sensitive to floral scents, so blooms that are scent-free are always a winner; think peonies, tulips, ranunculus and bluebells.

Libations

As I’ve already mentioned, I really do love my bubbles! I’m slowly becoming a bit of a wine connoisseur, growing my knowledge of reds and whites. Champagne will always be my favorite tipple, however.

When I’m inclined towards a non-alcoholic beverage, it’s always in the form of a cold Pellegrino or Topo Chico with lemon (and hopefully, a nice sunset to watch).

Below are some of my favorite bottles, for whichever mood we find ourselves in.
