Mannequin and Blogger Elvira Engel about her life in Monaco, journey, magnificence secrets and techniques and recognition on social media
We can see a lot of bloggers and influencers on social media, but what’s behind the luxurious, incredible images. We decided to ask one of the most beautiful Instagram models and bloggers, Elvira Engel (@_elviravi), to tell more about her life behind Instagram.
About life in Monaco
Monaco is a great place to live. First, it’s one of the most beautiful places in the world. Second, the weather is fantastic all year round. As in winter, it is sunny and not cold. Last but not least, it’s one of the safest places to live.
About conversations in Monaco
Global events such as the Monte-Carlo Grand Prix, tennis tournaments, yacht shows and music festivals take place in Monaco. There is always something to do here. There are many delicious restaurants and fashion bars. You can spend the day on a yacht or have fun at the Beach Club, relax in the spa or by the pool. There are many nice restaurants with good cuisine for lunch or dinner. We also have the world famous Monte Carlo Casino here. Even if you’re not a gambler, I would recommend visiting this magnificent, historic building and trying your luck. If you like night life there are nice dance clubs and bars out here. So believe me, you will never be bored!
About other favorite places
Every winter I fly to Asia for at least a month to explore new places and visit my already favorite places. This is usually the trip I look forward to the most. As with your arrival in Asia, you will not only explore a new continent, country or city, but also a whole new culture different from the western part of the world. I love starting my journey from China, Hong Kong and from there to other beautiful places that Asia is so rich in. One of my favorites are: Bali, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand.
If I am talking about a favorite place in Europe, I would definitely recommend Capri. It’s an island that stole my heart. This is a place I would love to visit again and again. It is a very beautiful and romantic island. Perfect for couples, but also friends and family. The island has its own atmosphere and charm that I can’t compare to any other place. It’s just impossible not to fall in love with her.
I’ve always had a love for foreign languages. I totally agree with the saying, “When you learn a new language, you learn a new mentality and a new culture”.
As a child I could speak Russian, Dutch and English. These are the languages I grew up with. After learning French. In my opinion it is one of the most beautiful languages, a true “language of love”. The next one on my list will be German.
About getting started on the Instagram blog
I set up my Instagram account to connect with my friends, but at one point people all over the world followed me. I never did anything special for it, I just posted new pictures. Now I get a lot of messages from girls all over the world asking me about my beauty secrets, my style and more about myself and my life in general. I’m always happy to answer and give helpful advice. There are many bloggers who love to share their whole life and all its ups and downs. But I’m more of a person who likes to bring joy and beauty to my side and keep my personal life to myself.
About beautiful women
All women are beautiful. I believe there are no standards for beauty. That changes all the time. If we look at the paintings from hundreds of years ago, we will see very different standards of beauty then. In my opinion, a beautiful woman is a woman with a beautiful soul, heart and mind. Any outer beauty will pass in time, but our inner beauty will stay with us forever. For me, a beautiful woman is not a series of external factors, but primarily beauty that comes from within.
About beauty secrets
I cannot say that there is a philosophy of beauty that has changed my life. But I firmly believe that “we are what we eat”. I love healthy food and have been a vegetarian for most of my life. I really believe that a healthy lifestyle has a positive effect on the quality of our skin and the overall aging process. Of course, like every woman, I like beauty products and like to pamper myself at the beautician. But even the best beautician would tell me that external beauty begins with a healthy body. Not being a fan of injections, I recently started doing facial exercises and I could already really see the results. I want to prevent aging by doing as much as possible through facial exercises, good skin care, and a healthy lifestyle.
