Let’s be real, many people refer to me as the “Coffee Addict”, as I’m known for my love for coffee. But those close to me know that my coffee time is very important to me and I cherish these moments especially when I share it with my loved ones. Nevertheless, it’s also the ‘Me Time’ that I get from my day to relax, enjoy the moment and think peacefully about what to do next.I have been L’OR lover since it has been launched in Austria, and ever since I have been addicted to every variety of the L’OR coffee capsules. But receiving the greatest news of being “L’OR taste ambassador” is one of the best things that happened to me lately. Moreover, I will represent L’OR at one of this year’s most important AIDS charity events, the Life Ball in Vienna. Numerous international celebrities from the world of fashion, entertainment, and politics work tirelessly every year to raise awareness for this issue. The City of Vienna also contributes significantly to the success of Life Ball. Providing Vienna’s City Hall as the venue for this event clearly shows this city’s tolerance and social responsibility. This year Life Ball celebrates its 25th anniversary and L’OR will be an official sponsor and the exclusive coffee partner. I am incredibly honored to be “L’OR taste ambassador” at this year’s Life Ball. In collaboration with the talented Austrian fashion designer Eva Poleschinski, who will create a tailor made gown that I will wear exclusively at Life Ball on 2nd of June. After the event, the dress will be auctioned for a good cause. I can’t wait to share soon on my blog and social media channels more about L’OR, the Life Ball and what I will wear to the event.
