The car story / 12.04.2016

A Rolls Royce Canvas We have a very unique Rolls Royce, and that is the least I can say about this car. The Rolls has just returned from the Dresden Art Show.

I went to the most popular park in Tokyo to marvel at the delicate pink blossoms decorating the trees fancifully....

Though it is a touch early in the season, a beautiful "invitation of friendship" from a friend whom I share a champagne passion, was something I could not resist....

Renovation, Schloss Schwarzenbach - The Agenda / 01.04.2016

One of my passions is home decorating and renovation. I love to express myself through creating environments to suit practical and aesthetic desires.

With that in mind I tackle many home...

I am a fortunate person. I realize this everyday. I have a great family, a wonderful husband and amazing children who are kind, polite, and all very talented in their own special way.

Health & Wellness / 09.11.2015
