It varies, whatever catches my interest.

8. Your favorite film:
I still go to the movies with my dad so I like action and well dressed men.

Morocco, Japan, Spain, France...various reasons.

What piece of art would you like to own?

  4. Doesn't Baccarat have the most interesting red. I learned that in order to make this particular red, they had to add gold in the process.

  8. Such interesting answers! I'm trying to imagine a life without feeling the need to wear make-up! Must free you up in many ways including saving time. Interesting mix of clothing brands you've selected too.

    I've not been to Japan though would love to go one day and I can thoroughly recommend Spain, France and Morocco.
