Because of the lifestyle and nature of my work, I am constantly surrounded by people. I talk to dozens, if not hundreds each day, online, real life and on the phone. Over the years, I’ve been extremely lucky to have met a ton of incredible and inspiring individuals from all walks of life around the world, some of them I personally admire. It’s one of the very many things that I truly love about my job.
As much as I love interacting with people, there are times when I want to be disconnected from everyone to recharge myself. From time to time, it’s nice not to be with the company of others, whether physically or virtually. No friends, no acquaintances around, no laptop, no ipad, and no phones. I call it “alone time”. That’s exactly what I had yesterday. A meaty dinner (carpaccio to start and bun-less burger for main) at Gilli, two glasses of red, a few cigarettes and a stroll around Piazza della Repubblica at sunset. Life is not good. Life is very good.

I’m a sucker for cheap thrills. I bought this embroidered backpack during a recent trip to Marrakesh for almost nothing. I’m not really a backpack person as you know, but I am genuinely going through an ‘unconventional bag’ moment. I’m obsessed with bags that are out of the usual designer norm — bucket bags, backpacks etc. Bless whoever made the Moroccan backpack for not being consistent with the color of the straps — one of them was brown and the other was a darker shade of coffee bean.

What was meant to be a healthy, ‘let’s have a salad’ for lunch trip ended up as a “burger n’ beer” binge with a side serving of a museum visit. We went to Stockholm’s Moderna Museet. Click click click for more pictures.
