What an absolute honor to have you! Thank you! The honor is mine. It was always my dream to be on the cover of a Playboy magazine and although I have taken photos for Playboy in another country, being on the cover of this edition of Playboy is a dream for me.
How do you like to start the day? I like to start the day very early and then go to breakfast at my favorite places. The reality is that I have a hard time getting up early so I almost always end up going to breakfast late, I really enjoy sitting down to drink coffee on the side and then go for a walk in nature.
What’s the most exciting hobby or interest you’ve pursued recently and how did you get into it? One of the activities I enjoy the most is taking pilates and stretching classes. I always do the physical activity but recently I started with stretching and I get excited, I also like to take dance classes every so often as it connects me with my femininity and makes me feel powerful and sensual.
If you could spend a day doing whatever you wanted, what would your ideal day look like? I love the relaxing days when I dedicate myself completely. I do beauty treatments, I go to the spa, then in the afternoon go shopping and in the evening a beautiful dinner in a nice place. I think those are my ideal days.
What’s one project or goal you’re currently working on that really excites you? My goal is to continue traveling and knowing countries, I think I’m already more than 70! In addition to that, I am with various business projects and investments that are something new to me.
What’s the most memorable date you’ve been on and what made it stand out? It is difficult to choose one since I must admit that my suitors were always very good and creative, I can not complain. A recent appointment that was very special was a dinner by the sea on a private paradise beach, the table was in the sand, and it was all decorated with candles and flowers. Dining with the sound of the ocean was a unique experience.
Are there any qualities or traits you find particularly attractive in a partner? What do you value most? I find very attractive men who generate admiration for me, who are intelligent, successful in what they do, who like to be with the family, and who have a quiet lifestyle. What I value most is loyalty. I like men who are true gentlemen.
Who has been your biggest inspiration or role model in your personal or professional life? I never had professional references or anyone I admired too much. I feel that my biggest inspiration since I was a child was myself, I overcame the difficult moments of my childhood alone, I always had a clear mind, I was always very demanding and I achieved all my goals. Mentally I feel unshakable.
What do you enjoy most about your hobbies or interests outside of work? Without a doubt what I enjoy most is spending time with my family and loved ones, I am a super family person.
How do you find a balance between your personal life and your career? I was always a very balanced person, I was never overwhelmed by work since I always made time for myself. At present I must say that most of my time is dedicated to me, to enjoy, to travel.
How do you stay motivated and overcome challenges in your work? I am always motivated because I always have new ideas, I always do new things, I always have some project or dream to fulfill that keeps me focused and motivated. I never get bored.
Where can our readers catch up with you and stay up to date with your work? The social network that I use the most is Instagram, you can follow me and see more about my life @nadiapalik.
