I'm well-travelled so I can see places coming up. I went to St. Croix in the West Indies at Christmas and it had been hit by a really bad tornado. Values there have gone down but I guarantee they will be up again in eight years. So I'll get in now while it's cheap as chips.
My favorite designer is Christian Lacroix not just because his clothes are amazing and I love them but because he's so nice. When I did his fashion show he was the first one to arrive there and he helped everyone.
