Can you describe your daily routine?
My daily routine depends if I’m home with family or traveling for work. If I’m home, I’m a mom and a wife. I wake up around 6am, take a shower, wake up my daughter, have breakfast with her, take her to school, squeeze a work out, pick her up from school and have lunch with her, when she naps I get emails done and stuff around the house, then she has some sort of a class or a play date, then it’s family dinner and bed at 8pm. I’m quite a boring old lady 🙂 when I’m working and traveling then I’m definitely out past my bed time. I love a good dinner out.
Smoothie or coffee?
Neither, I drink green tea.
What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
Shower, brush teeth, then have a cup of warm water with lemon juice.
What is your favourite way to spend your Sunday?
I love being by the beach, I would be there with family and friends, have a beautiful lunch with a bottle of rose, play with my daughter in the sand.
What’s on your bedside table?
Candle, picture of my daughter, hand lotion, eye mask, journal I write to her every day in.
You are a mum, wife and international model – what is your secret to balancing them all?
I don’t think that I truly can balance them all. But I try to be my very best every day to my family, friends, career that I feel like I have it balanced because of that.
What would you say is the secret to a happy life?
For me, being around my family.
What does ‘mindfulness’ mean to you?
Loving and appreciating yourself.
How do you keep your Silou-ette in shape?
I take my Silou from yoga class to spin or Pilates to a run. Hands down the most comfortable, beautifully made and chicest work out clothes.
Which Silou design is your favourite?
What is your favourite indulgence?
Sweet potato fries and Napoleon cake my grandmother makes.
Summer or Winter?
The countryside or the seaside?
Seaside but there’s no place like a Russian countryside for me.
