 It fills you up. I mean, it’s the simplest thing you can ever think of, but I drink at least one and a half to two liters a day.

 I always just keep a big bottle by me and that way I can monitor how much I drink, even at the design studio.

I'm sure my thighs looked better when I was 25, but I think my mind is better today.

 I [have been] reconstructing my life and putting it back together in a way that looked more appropriate to who I was... At this point in my career, I'm still growing. Jewels, spices and teas - I sound like Magellan.
