9 things I’ve learned in 24 years

A homemade life Morning Light Paris (1)

  • Be genuinely interested in others. This is simply the best way to build new relationships and friendships and it will definitely help you in your career path. Make the effort to get to know the people you’re working with by inviting them for coffee or dinner.
  • Champagne is always the answer (so is pizza by the way).
  • ‘Life can be romantic without having a romance. I’m very attracted to how happy I am right now’. This is something that Taylor Swift said and to be honest, I couldn’t agree more. Fall in love with yourself first: find the perfect career path, enjoy drinking wine with friends, find a home that makes you happy, learn how to be on your own for a while and travel as often as you possibly can.
  • If you have to wait for more than a day for him to text you back, he’s not worth your time and effort. Never settle for anything less than you deserve.
  • Being a good listener is one of the best skills you can have.
  • I will always prefer Italian pizza’s, French croissants and wine over green salads and superfoods.
  • Wear sunscreen. When I was a teenager, getting the perfect tan was the mode du jour. I wanted to get the sun-kissed glow sooner rather than later and never thought twice about the skin damage caused by UV rays. Nowadays, I’ve learned to embrace my natural skin tone in the hopes that it will mean less wrinkles and a lower risk of skin cancer as I get older.
  • Life is not always fair. It’s as simple as that.
  • When it comes to your career: go the extra mile, it’s never crowded.
