I’ve always loved glamour.
In elementary school I took part in an event called Night of the Nobles where students represent someone famous form the past. You dress up, make a presentation, set up a whole stand and serve a food that represents your ‘noble’.
While my mother begged me to go as a writer like Beatrix Potter, I shimmied into a gold sequin dress, sang “Happy Birthday Mr.President” with a big birthday cake, darkened my beauty mark and went as Marilyn Monroe.
I recently stumbled upon one of my biggest girl crushes, Dita Von Teese, on Grub Street sharing her burlesque diet. You all might know I’m a little obsessed with Grub Street and did my own variation last year.
The whole thing only made me love her more. She is obviously a big personal fan of Kimberly Snyder, one of my favourite nutritionists and health food gurus, but is also a dessert snob, a Mariage Frères tea lover and a cocktail fan. Girl after my own heart?
