My Little Pleasures

Perfection is Sophistication with a touch of filth
Things I love to do
As lovely as that would be, life isn’t all about fucking. I mention elsewhere on my site that I am an epicurean. As such, I am always seeking to fill my life with pleasure in all its forms. Below I have listed a few of my absolutely favourite things. And you know what’s even better than doing the things you love?
Sharing them with someone special.
I am a true gastronome. I even worked one year on publishing a cookbook for one of the world’s leading cookery schools. Food is a true passion of mine and I am a walking culinary encyclopedia. Let’s enjoy the finest restaurants together, or the secret little finds that nobody knows about. I love both. Take me to your favourite spot or let me show you mine.
Theatre & Opera
I was brought up on opera. At the age of three years old I would already demand that my parents pop on a VHS of La Cenerentola. I can’t think of a better way to spend an ev ening than at Glyndebourne or at the Royal Opera House. I also adore theatre. I’m more into shakespeare and fringe theatre than I am into the broadway musicals.
I am an avid alpine skier. I used to practice Super G slalom. I was brought up in the Swiss alps and thus have spent a vast portion of my life with my feet firmly locked into skis. A skiing holiday is my idea of the dream vacation.
Watching a Good Film
Let’s build a blanket fort and get out the tub of Haagen Dazs. I love getting cozy in front of a good film. Whether it’s a black and white classic or a modern thriller, even a comedy. I love curling up and snuggling on a pile of cushions with you while we lose ourselves in a story.
Sharing a bath
There are few things more intimate than sharing a bath. Does your hotel room have a lovely large tub? Let’s get out the bubble bath and slip in together. We can scrub each other clean and get slippery before we get messy.
As a keen gallivanter, I’ll never say no to a little vacation, or a big one. I love discovering new places, whether cities or countryside, tropical islands or far off mountains.
What girl doesn’t love to be taken shopping, Carte Blanche? Spoiling me rotten is the surest way straight to my heart. Whether it’s for lingerie and shoes or more bespoke items, I adore shopping, especially at my favourite shop, Liberty’s.
Let’s both hide away for the day and let the outside world slip away as we steam ourselves into oblivion. I’ll spoil you with massages in between saunas and Jacuzzi and maybe we can even find a little hidden corner in which to get a bit naughty…
