I’ve pictured you being here…

 

I really have. I’ve thought about it a lot, and about what sharing this part of our lives might look like.

The Interview

 

For the curious I’ve added a few personal notes…

 
 
 
 
 

+ What made you choose to enter this industry?

After months of research and some careful consideration I tentatively begun this journey. It was something that had fascinated me for a long time, and it wasn’t a lifestyle that was entirely unknown to me - when at university I’d developed a taste for the illicit, and one of my favourite things was to explore with new friends. As my curiosity grew this was simply a natural progression, and I’ve made the most rewarding connections through it. I’ve always kept one foot in the vanilla world, and one in the illicit, and I wouldn’t change one moment of it.

Ultimately, the decision to incorporate this unusual little world into my life is a choice borne from pure intrigue, and it's something that allows me to constantly evolve.

+ Do you like what you do?

The answer above might go some way to explaining this, but if I were in your shoes this would be a pressing question for me too. For so many reasons I’m glad it’s something that you think about, it speaks to a consideration and kindness it’s important my friends have. I regard this question as being incredibly aware about what it means to engage with someone on such a level, and it speaks to a knowledge relating to the importance of mutual enjoyment, and that most elusive of things - authenticity.

+ What’s your idea of the perfect date?

Something that starts with easy laughter and stimulating conversation over drinks or great food. Something that ends with a feeling of happiness, warmth, and understanding. The bit in-between? That’s where the magic happens.

+ What makes you smile?

What brings me absolute contentment is being cherished, adored, and looked after by a man who can derive his own pleasure from mine.

I do, however, tend to see the beauty in most moments, and some tangible things that’ll make me light up a room are fresh flowers, good manners, crisp sheets on king sized beds, and stolen time during the day when the rest of the world works.

+ What are you most excited about these days?

Ultimately, my career. I'm dedicated, ambitious, and hard-working. I believe that when one works hard one develops a touch for the best life can offer. I believe in reaping the fruits of our labour, and our leisure time ought to be spent seeking pleasures and satisfaction. I like to enjoy the best, and I like those around me to also.

+ What’s your signature drink?

Champagne. Every cork popped is a celebration of some form. From a special vintage shared with a friend to a single glass at the end of a hard day, champagne is always a go to treat and the ultimate associative object.

+ What are your favourite flowers?

I adore having all manner of flowers in my home, but I think white bouquets that include roses and lilies are the most exquisite in every way. I find I have just enough at any given time when each room in my home is brightened by them.

+ Do you have a favourite season?

I included this here because my favourite season is the most romantic (I think). It's Spring! Cherry trees blossom, I can enjoy the first al fresco lunch at Harry's with a friend, the lighter evenings come as a beautiful surprise, and the stir of nature makes everything feel so alive.

Flutteringly,

Floating in the breeze,

A single butterfly.
