The door opens on the third floor, - Come in and feel at home, I have a few minutes left in the bathroom! Cassandra stands in front of her bathroom cabinet and puts on the final makeup. In the cabinet, lipsticks, face masks, setting sprays, tops and other necessities coexist with each other. Ponyo and Totoro, Cassandra's two lovely roommates, are never more than a meter away from their owner. A little hesitantly, they follow me as I walk through the apartment. A feeling of security and good energy spreads. Cassandra has lived here for many years but her home is constantly changing. It is refurnished, repainted, things moving around and then it starts all over again. Cassandra describes herself as smart, passionate about music and always has cola-zero at home! Meet her here.
How would you describe yourself?
Cozy, sensitive, explosive, loving, smart and fun!
A perfect day with you, what does it look like?
It is definitely a weekend. Maybe Sunday? Calm and slow morning!!! Waking up in bed, then up to the vacuum cleaner haha, SO important that it is always cleaned otherwise I get no peace at all. Late breakfast, make a good nice sandwich and drink good coffee in front of the TV, probably watching some reality series. Then I clean a little more, change bedding as always on Sundays and snuggle around. Then the day is spent just cuddling, cuddling, cuddling, sprucing up and enjoying!
