Fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of Bazaar’s leg­endary ed­i­tor Diana Vree­land, Nadja Swarovski shares her lifestyle tips for the month

Harper's Bazaar (India) - - BAZAAR -

...take a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive. Visit a mu­seum or a gallery to see the world

from a dif­fer­ent point of view. ...re­dis­cover the clas­sics, from clothes to movies. Vin­tage is al­ways in sea­son. ...sup­port lo­cal tal­ent. In this global world, it is so re­fresh­ing to dis­cover

the work of lo­cal artists and de­sign­ers. In­di­vid­u­al­ity is much more in­ter­est­ing than glob­al­i­sa­tion. ...fol­low your in­stincts. Trust what

you feel to be right. It usu­ally is. ...never say never be­cause you never know where the ex­pe­ri­ence might take you. Noth­ing is im­pos­si­ble if you

set your mind to it.

...ex­pand your hori­zons. Book tick­ets to a play or an opera that you would never nor­mally go and see. It

might sur­prise you! ...start a col­lec­tion. Whether it is jew­ellery, shoes, or hand­bags, it is fun to rum­mage through vin­tage

shops and mar­kets look­ing for one-of-a-kind pieces to add to your

per­sonal trea­sure chest.

...go back to your roots. Re­dis­cover the life and val­ues of your fore­fa­thers.

My great-great-grand­fa­ther, who founded Swarovski over a 100 years ago, was com­mit­ted to char­i­ta­ble giv­ing and al­ways en­sured that his busi­ness cared for its em­ploy­ees and the lo­cal com­mu­nity. His val­ues are the guid­ing prin­ci­ples for the way

we work to­day.

...give back. It’s good for the soul. We are in the for­tu­nate po­si­tion of be­ing able to give back to the com­mu­nity. We launched the Swarovski Foun­da­tion to reaf­firm our com­mit­ment to cre­ativ­ity and

cul­ture, well-be­ing and hu­man rights, con­serv­ing nat­u­ral re­sources as well as to leave a rich legacy for

fu­ture gen­er­a­tions. ...med­i­tate. The fre­netic pace of our

lives to­day of­ten leaves us feel­ing drained and unin­spired. Take some

time out to shut your­self off from the out­side world, and find

your­self again.
