How do you plan to celebrate the New year? Where?
For me the New year is a family home and a holiday, so I’m not going to change anything and the meeting next year in the company of the friends and relatives. If you go somewhere, then only after midnight.—
Plan to cook salad Olivier, herring under a fur coat and other traditional dishes? Time life remains?
The last few months we are all busy with repairs, but I still try to have time to prepare a sachet of something tasty, for example, now in the fridge is soup! Just finished packing the kitchen, just putting finishing touches, so look forward to the opportunity to cook something. Since the New year we will meet in the family circle, I will help my mom with holiday meals. We try to make Christmas table versatile – combine traditional dishes with a modern classic, for example, in addition to Olivier and herring under a fur coat prepared “Caesar” with shrimp and a salad Nicoise.—
The gift has already ordered? Love surprises?
I chose gifts for family and loved ones in early November. Their choice and I and Sasha very seriously. I rarely get any specific gifts – give someone the opportunity to amaze me. I love surprises, especially gifts of experiences, like a ticket for your favorite artist or balloon flight.
As for your family with Alexander and distributed responsibilities?
Because we both work, we try to carry an equal amount of responsibilities at home: he usually buys food – I cook. However, sometimes he spoils me with dinners. Trying to maintain order in the apartment, clean together on the weekends.
Alexander is a favorite dish in your performance?
Soup! The one who is now in the fridge.
You got married in September of this year. How do you like married life? Maybe, there is already some tradition?
Family life I love it! A few days after the wedding, we could not realize that we are now husband and wife. A frightened us, that in the first months very hard to get used to each other, but we lived for some time together before this event and the family life began peacefully. Can’t say that life has changed greatly, except that I became even happier.—
How like her husband to spend his free time?
Now we have the final stage of repair, and almost no free time. We are homebodies, love to spend time at home watching movies, cooking. Sometimes I go to events, love to travel.
You are both athletes. Visit the gym together?
Try to keep in shape, but train at different times due to different work schedules. Prefer different loads. Sasha, of course, visit the pool and gym, I love stretching, Pilates.—
You have to diet, I can tell you about your diet? Are there any beauty secrets?
On any trendy diets or exhausting systems of feeds that I don’t sit, but try to avoid sweet, starchy foods and fast food. Adhere to the “intuitive” power, do not count calories, like salads and grilled fish, eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. Try to eat little by little but often. No special secrets, I do not – in everyday life I try at least to use decorative cosmetics and practically does not dry hair.
Already thinking about children? Would you like a large family?
Children, we definitely plan to, but now a lot of plans and projects, including workers who have yet to implement.—
