Postcards from Deirdra

Growing up in Waterford, the oldest city in Ireland, Deirdra was often lonesome as an only child.  She spends her days by the sea where she is most at peace. In the evenings, she spends hours laboring over her favorite hobby ~ building tiny ships to fit inside of old bottles (a craft she learned from her grandfather). She prefers to walk rather than drive, she always dresses for dinner and still sends hand written notes to her friends. Someday she'll travel the world - but it could only be by sea, for Deirdra will never leave the ocean ~ it is her truest friend.

Meet Donatella

Donatella grew up like Italian royalty, the granddaughter of Federico Fellini wanted for nothing. She moved to the Big Apple when she was eighteen in hopes of working with her hero Woody Allen. Now she spends half the year in Singapore where she lives with her on-again off-again architect boyfriend at the Fullerton Bay Hotel penthouse suite, because, quite honestly ~ you can't beat the view. Plus Singapore airlines still serves in crystal and Donatella appreciates those types of little details. She tells people she watches what she eats, she just doesn't tell them it's usually steak frites! She hasn't exactly given up on her dreams of starring in a Woody Allen film, however at the moment she is quite content to be in front and behind the lens of her own camera creating moving pictures & writing her story!
