Well I met a lady with what could be deemed the fabulous life. She’s a entertainer, model and socialite and dabbles in other things. She modelled for many of the large French fashion houses before she left the industry due to exploitation. But from there, her life has been about endless travel; Cap Ferrat, Mykonos, Los Angeles, Monaco, Zurich, St Barths, attending events, and her side business. To top it off, she has the glamour and good looks of a Victoria Secret model.
She talked about her desire for children years back but she really got the “glamorous” life she wanted anyway. I’m not one to downplay somebody’s success, but I guess she crafted the person she is for the lifestyle she wants. Culture here is ostentatious. Especially the Russians .The Russians give no fucks, they will have five yachts if they want to!!! I think that’s why rich people gravitate to these places, they want to be around people who don’t make them feel bad for stunting lol. Reminds of an interview I watched with a British billionaire who stated that British people will judge someone for having a Bentley whilst in other places they view it as inspirational.
I’m somewhere in the middle. Greed is despicable, there’s more to life than what you own. But life’s too short to pretend I like struggle living or that comfort and stress free living are bad things. Also can I just say, if you want to get into the international luxury/design industries of any kind or would like to network in Europe: learn either Italian/French/German and even Russian potentially. Doors will open.
