Shopping - Caroline loves to buy books

Necessary Extravagance - Being a company member of Carte Blanche has its perks and she along with her fellow artists are lucky to get an hour massage every two weeks with a fantastic masseuse from Bergen.  Its a real treat for her and in a busy work period, she'll take Magnesium to help the muscles release.
