My appreciations

September 15, 2017

My appreciations… While flipping through the latest issue of Vanity FairΒ , I have come across the section “Vanities” with a guest star Bianca Jagger. Part of the vanity talks was titled “my appreciations” which sounded interesting to me so I’ve read thought it and thought that the same questions would be fun for me to answer on the blog, so let’s give it a try. πŸ™‚

What inspires you?

Most of times, I get easily inspired and the creative juices are flowing like a champagne, but sometimes it takes an “extra sweat” to get inspired or find something inspiring. I could say that I’m easily inspired by everything that surrounds me, music, nature, random passers by, architecture, etc. I’d say that most of my inspiration comes from human relationships and from my travels.

Whom do you look up to the most?

I look up to the strong character male or female friends in my life. I also look up to all of the good hearted, selfless and not self centred people who are always ready to help to those in need, to give a “back” to rely on and are genuinely giving and kind in nature, not expecting anything in return.

Favourite book at the moment?

The life changing magic of not giving a f*ck by Sarah Knight and I got it from Amazon.

Favourite writer?Β 

Way too many to mention, but of the more current/ modern day ones I’d say Paula Hawkins and John Grisham.

Favourite film director?

Tim Burton, Christopher Nolan, Steven Spielberg and Woody Allen.

Favourite artist?

Tim Walker and Tim Burton.

Favourite performer?Β 

Sergei Polunin and Johnny Depp.

Favourite music artist?

Hurts band and singer Sia.

Favourite childhood character?

Lucky Luke

Your guilty pleasure?

Eating ice-cream by the spoon straight from the ice cream box. πŸ˜€

What would you do for a career in your next life?

Software and IT wizard!

Favourite vacation spot?


Your hidden talent?

Won’t say, otherwise it won’t be a hidden one anymore. πŸ˜€

If you could choose a superpower, what would it be?


Best childhood memory?

All of my holidays in Moscow with my grandparents.

Greatest indulgence?

Being present in the moment…

    I always eat ice cream straight from the box/carton. Always done so, as a kid!
