A Miami-based luxury maven says she spends a staggering $37,000 per year on her appearance — and is encouraging other women to “level up” in all aspects of their lives.
Koko Slunjski, 32, moved to the US from Croatia a decade ago and says she quickly learned the importance of looking good.
“English is not my first language. So appearance to me is like communicating with someone before you even speak,” she told Southwest News Service in an interview on Thursday.
In the past 12 months, Slunjski says she has splashed $1,300 on Russian manicures, $600 on pedicures, $3,00 on hair maintenance and $2,000 on skincare all in her pursuit of physical perfection.
She has additionally spent more than $30,000 on a wardrobe chock full of designer clothing.
Haters have labeled Slunjski “high-maintenance,” but the beautiful blond isn’t bothered by the slur and has even learned to embrace it.
“High-maintenance just means you want the very best from life and you’re not afraid to ask for it,” she unashamedly declared.
The content creator says many of her critics cruelly claimed she’d never find a man because of all the time and money she puts into her appearance.
“Everyone told me I was asking too much and said I’d be ‘lucky’ if I got taken out to McDonald’s on a first date,” the Miami maven claimed.
However, Slunsjki never settled for a sub-par partner, saying: “I will only date a man who wants to level up, and who strives for bigger and better things.”
Thankfully, the stunner has now found love with a 34-year-old equity consultant who encourages her opulent spending habits.
But far from relying on her partner to fund her five-figure clothing and beauty budget, Slunjski says she’s self-made.
The Croatian claims she arrived in the US with two suitcases and $1,000 to her name before working hard for everything she now has.
“I’m not just a rich girl. Everything I’ve had, I built myself,” she declared.
“So if you’re not able to keep up with that, why would I want you in my life?” the Florida resident further asked.
Slunjski is encouraging other women to embrace being “high-maintenance” and strive for perfection in all areas of life — not just dating.
She says her critics should also follow suit.
“It just makes me sad that instead of trying to level up themselves, they try to drag people down with them,” she declared. “My question to trolls would be: Why aren’t you a little more selective on who you date?”
