She doesn’t drink tea, coffee, wine and beer

Both her parents are 100% Polish (they were born in Poland)

She’s very passionate about event design and home décor

One of her favorite mantras is “Winter is coming…” (not because she’s the world’s biggest pessimist, on the contrary, it’s as a reminder to live each day to the full 🙂
