WISHES + SPOILS
Since relocating to Europe I have been embracing a slow living and more minimalist lifestyle; over-consumption and materialism are not very appealing to me, and excess waste is vulgar. I am NOT the type of woman who needs or wants an overflowing wardrobe, racks of shoes or even more lingerie than I already have.
What I want is a curated home full of orignal art, beautiful furniture, heirloom rugs and bookshelves full of books! I want comfort and being surrounded by the the one of a kind things I collect over years of traveling the world. These things are what that add to the quality of my life in measurable ways.
Gift receiving is my love language, meaning that gesture is literally how I will experience affection. So while gifts aren't necessary, gifts are the most effective way to get my attention, and leave me thinking of you every time I look at that item.
If you would like to gift me something not listed on my wishlist please ask me first.
