I had proven that a farm girl from the country-side could learn her way into being aupscale and elegant woman. I felt unstoppable!
I thought I had it all figured out.
After my Italian boyfriend and I split up, I decided to investigate a totally different crowd: the glittering jetsetters of Ibiza, also known as “the beautiful people”. These were a totally new kind of affluent society than what I’d been enjoying in Rome: they were mostly the new-money multi-millionaire and billionaire-types with their incredible yachts and modern island homes, and they spent their days, nights, and money on living high-end, exciting lives… a never-ending whirlwind full of events, parties and luxury shopping.
I thought I had guaranteed my one-way-ticket to a life of freedom, power, and unshakable confidence, and the ability to live a truly elegant life but…
I still had so much to learn. Which brings me back to that yacht party...
Ladies, do you remember how I said that I’d been working for 18 months on this moment…and I thought I was going to lose it all? This is what happened. On the night of that yacht party, I came down with a horrible stomach flu.
I was in no shape to go anywhere, but this was such an amazing chance to meet and interact with A-list celebrities…I couldn’t miss this opportunity!
