As you can guess from this post headline, today I decided to let you know me a little more, because let's be honest, no matter how many beauty/fashion related posts I publish, you will never know about me or my life. And since everyone is always curious about who is behind the blog, I thought I would share with you guys a few thing about me. Let's get started:
I was born and raised in the capital of a small Eastern European county. I was second daughter in my family that was a big tragedy for my father. He was never happy about it, as if it was my fault that I was not his son. I was #1 student from elementary school to high school to college __ I guess, I was trying to show my father that I deserved love just like any other kid. I was the only one among my siblings, who got the master degree (in journalism) and got invited to work at the college that I had graduated from, I was the only one who started working at young age, to support myself, first, at newspapers and later, at the TV station, but I never knew if this was enough for my father to be proud of me...
2. MotherhoodThe best thing I had created in my entire life is my daughter. She thought me how to love unconditionally, how to be patient, she made me realise that my life has never been complete until she was born. So, motherhood made me a better person.

3. Paris or New York?
I think I've never talked about how I moved to USA so this is my opportunity to share with you this quick story: First, let me tell you, I have never dreamed about moving to USA, probably because I didn't speak English, not even one word, haha. I could only speak my language, Georgian, also Russian, and French. I started learning English only few years ago. but let's get back to the subject, how I moved to USA.
So, I was about to go to Paris to get my another master degree from Sorbonne university, everything was ready, I was just enjoying last few months with my family before moving to Paris. But one day, my, now-husband 's proposal changed all my Parisian plans. He wanted us to get married that meant that I had to move to USA. So, as you can guess, I chose love over the college and instead of Paris, I moved to New York City. (we recently moved out the city to raise our daughter in quieter environment, we are only 20 minutes away from NYC).
4. Do I believe in destiny?
I still can't decide whether I belive in destiny or not, but sometimes, when I think about how me and my husband met and soon, got married, I belive there must have been some kind of destiny that my life had changed so unexpectedly: One day, I decided to start learning English, so I took English classes. Few months later, my now-husband was visiting my country and we met accidentally in a formal situation. Even though my English was still at a very ridiculous level, we started talking about the subjects that I was interested in, as a reporter that time, and soon, after he came back to USA, he realised that he missed me.. We continued talking for hours on the phone and on Skype, every single day. That was an excellent practice for my English, haha. 3 months later he proposed me, and few months later he came to Tbilisi so we could get married. 1 year later, I moved to New York to start a real family with him. So, yes, it was kinda fairytale, haha.
5. My hobbies
My number one hobby has always been reading. I just couldn't be without books, especially that we didn't have internet when I was growing up, so at the age of 12, I had read almost all the books from my family's huge library. Unfortunatly, I don't read that often anymore.I always loved playing piano or guitar and sing, especially if I was feeling down, that was helping me feel better. Skiing and racing are my another hobbies as well.
That's all for today.
Thanks for reading beauties, wishing you all a lovely day.
