Today we are chatting with the truly spectacular Chiara. Fonder of Baci di Dama and Stella Bambina, Chiara shines brighter than a diamond, I think we need the 411 on her Savoir Vivre to do more of whatever she’s doing, hehe.
What time do you wake up?
It depends, it can be 6, if I go to the swimming pool or 7 during week days – I am definitely a morning bird.
I don’t like having routines… as the more you do, the less they make sense and your body gets used to them, so I prefer to listen to my body daily and give it what it needs.
How has your life changed since you have found out about your gluten intolerance?
A lot ! gluten is still everywhere (products, dishes at the restaurants, medicines…) and it is sometimes hard to find meals that are gluten free when you travel But I am positive that things will get smoother, they already are in big cities and I am SO grateful that it is positively changing
What is your key to always having a smile on your face?
I really don’t know… it’s always been with me since I can remember… no matter what I was going through…I guess it’s a way to survive, to transform everything it happens to me into a strength to go on and grow, to learn to be grateful of what I have, to be able to see the beauty around me and the good in people…
What is your greatest passion and why does it bring you joy?
I have many…. art, photography, cooking, discovering new restaurant or catching up with the one I know, drawing, writing, swimming, seeing the people I love…
Do you take any supplements or adaptogens?
Supplements yes and it depends on how I fee and the time of the year.
Coffee or tea?
Both as I like to vary what I drink – I don’t have favourite brands – I am a very curious human being – I like to try new things.
What do you do for exercise?
I love swimming!
What is on your current playlist? Can you share it with us?
I don’t have a playlist and again, the music I listen to, changes with my mood.
I do love Classic Music, as well as Neapolitan songs, POP music, Italian play writers. I can spend a whole month just with one and then I go to another one… ;)
Do you have a beauty routine? What products do you use?
Not really – I am learning to take care of me more, so it is important to take time to pamper myself … since last year I love using natural organic oils on my skin and hair … my fave… pure organ oil!
What time of the day do you feel the best?
All day, it really depends on the day and the mood.
How do you get your energy up at your down time of the day?
Meditation and studying are key tools from me – learning from people I admire is life!
How do you deal with the every day stress of being an entrepreneur?
I don’t have the perfect recipe but it will be as above, meditate and study, focus on the big self, not the small one.
What brought you to entrepreneurship?
One day I will know… I came to Paris almost 5 years ago with just a piece of luggage and a room on airbnb – I didn’t have a plan, a business plan, I just chose to be “my own woman” and prove myself I could… I could change my life to the roots … have confidence in me , love me more, do things that make me really happy and work to make them happen… that’s my life today :)
What is the last book you read?
I am reading “Trasformez Votre Vie” by L hay, she is an author that I often go back to.

Many … ! I love to cook and to change – every season has its own meals.

Sometimes early sometimes around 11.
