Wishlist + Favorites
I never expect gifts upon arrival for an engagement, but they are welcome and I will never forget you if you bring one. It is an easy way to become my favorite gentleman!
If you need date ideas, know that I am very open minded and enjoy many activities. My newsletter and blog have great ideas for dates every month. I love watching just about any sport, experiences at basketball, football, hockey, baseball, and soccer games or tennis matches and golf tournaments are welcome. We can do them together or if you would like gift me with tickets to one I will definitely go and send you photos!
Pink is my favorite color.
I love flowers so much! My favorite floral arrangements are made with peonies, white roses, and hydrangeas. I also adore La Fleur bouquets.
I am a social drinker and love a glass of Rosé or Champagne. For red wines, I prefer Syrah (or Shiraz, as it is referred to in my mother's homeland - Iran); for white wines, I like Semillon and Chardonnay.
My measurements are 34DDD-26-42" and I am 5'3".
- My dress size is generally a US 6 [UK 8, FR 36, GER 34, IT 40, AUS 10, JP 9], or medium.
- In tops, I am typically a size small.
- For bottoms and jeans, I am usually a medium or pant size US 6 or a 29 (to accommodate my ample derriere).
- In shoes, I wear a size 8 or 38. [size 39 in high end designer shoes such as Christian Louboutin].
July's Most Wanted
Morgan Lane's Lanie Sleeping Mask
I am a sun worshipper, so I prefer any space I am in to have abundant sunlight. Floor to ceiling windows in my apartment, incall, hotel rooms, to window seats in restaurants and on planes.
But, all that sun often messes with my sleep cycle - which is super difficult to deal with during these long summer days when the daylight carries on from 6am to 8pm! Now, I know exactly why some people always keep a sleep mask and earplugs in her dresser drawer. This mask is super cute... and hopefully will help me count more sheep!
Anthropologie's Brass Wine Rack
Red, white, rosé, champagne... I love it all! A shameless lush, I enjoy at least one glass of wine almost every night. On the weekly run to the grocery store, a nice bottle is always on my list- but sometimes I have so many bottles I don't know where to store them!
I have not quite made become a sommelier, though I may have reached oenophile levels recently. In any event, I've been drooling over this brass wine rack for a very long time and hope it finds a home on my countertop soon so that I have even more space to store my favorite wine bottles!
I absolutely love perfume, although I do not often wear it to engagements for discretion purposes. I keep a huge collection of them in my home boudoir. My favorite fragrances are Versace Yellow Diamond, CoCo Mademoiselle by Chanel, Chance Eau Tendre by Chanel, J'Adore by Dior, Flora Gorgeous Gardenia by Gucci, Guilty by Gucci, 3 L'Imperatrice by D&G, Acqua di Goia by Dolce & Gabbana, Daisy by Marc Jacobs, Flowerbomb by Vicktor + Rolf, and Reb'l Fleur by Rihanna.
Shoes & Handbags
A woman can never have enough shoes or handbags! They literally take an outfit from couch potato to runway model. Christian Louboutin, Guiseppe Zanotti, Tom Ford, Jimmy Choo, Saint Laurent, and Aquazurra are my favorite brands. I am a luxury handbag collector. My favorite handbags are Celine, Chanel, Goyard, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Fendi, and Prada. I also have a number of Gucci handbags.
I am a techie. I love to play video games on my Playstation 4. Any top rated game I will play, although I prefer first person shooters, stealth games, and RPGs. I do a lot of contracted computer work since I am a part time web designer. Best Buy and Apple gift cards go a long way for me. Currently on my wishlist is the 128 GB Wi-Fi + Cellular iPad Mini in Gold.
The most extraordinary gift one could give, besides their time and attention, is a new perspective- which is exactly what a chance to travel provides. I love being off-the-grid and caught up in the languages, dialects, and cuisines of exotic places. Airline and Hotel gift cards are always welcome.
For hotel chains, in order of preference, I love the Four Seasons, Shangri-La, Hyatt, Marriott/Starwood and Hilton. Currently, my vacation destination wish list includes the Phillippines, Bora Bora, Bali, Anguilla, Iceland, Morocco, and Sydney, Australia.
