The Luxury Lifestyle, Friendship and Dating App, VieLoco Приложение VieLoco для дружбы и знакомств в высшем обществе Would it not be like magic if you could have an app on your mobile phone that will help you make new friends, make business connections or create a serious romance based on your personal lifestyle and passions? Приложение мобильного телефона, помогающее на основе ваших привязанностей и образа жизни найти новых друзей, установить деловые связи или встретить настоящую любовь, – сродни волшебству. BY ANJOU BHOJWANI VV met the two glamorous London based best friends who have created just such an app with a well hyped launch at the private members club, Loulous in Mayfair. Nora Lee Notzon and Fiona, Baroness De Vos Van Steenwijk pooled together their impressive network of high achievers, European aristocracy and the financial elite for this passions led app. It's called VieLoco which loosely translates as "crazy life". The VieLoco user is often well travelled, thrives on living life to the fullest and is always in the moment. Nora Lee enthuses that users "love like they have never been hurt, work like they don't need the money and dance like no one is watching ' Research shows that friendships and romance are more likely to succeed when the participants have common interest or shared passions. You can search for matches on the app selecting your personal passions; categories include artistic or sports interests, favorite destinations, dining or cooking and cultural pursuits. Members can even change their passion selections according to the season: look for a skiing partner in the winter to someone to enjoy fine dining and partying with in the summer. Another unique feature of the app is the gift section. Users can send unique luxury gifts and lifestyle experiences to each other. 90
Perfect for birthdays or bringing back the art of courting. The range covers luxe candles, wines and whiskeys to private cooking lessons at top restaurants, golfing days, or Tuscan wine getaways. For a mind blowing option there is even a £380,000 Space Odyssey experience on offer and this gift feature is constantly evolving. On the dating side, Nora Lee explains that it's refreshing to have the opportunity to pre vet a potential date using the video chat feature. This is the first app to offer live streaming between potential matches. Being able to see your match and hear his or her voice for a while makes a first date much more comfortable. This makes people actually look forward to that first date rather than secretly dreading it. As vibrant and outgoing London girls with an international outlook, Nora Lee and Fiona were constantly introducing their friends and connections to each other based on what they were looking for in life. This has so naturally lead to a technology aided extension of their own personalities. VieLoco is the perfect and versatile location for people looking to expand and organize their social occasions with like minded individuals. We recommend that you try it!
