Madonna was so wrong when she sang “time goes by so slowly” in her Hung Up song from Confessions on a Dance Floor album. What was she even thinking, especially that the truth is the very opposite. Time goes fast, too fast. Sometimes I even think it accelerates to rocket speed… especially when I’m being trapped in a vortex of work. The thing is – another year has passed and today is my birthday. I’m not sure if it will be an extraordinary day. My parents are not here because they’re working and nor are here my friends who could celebrate with me. I’ll be cheerful because it’s my day, no matter what! 25th year of my life has been a bumpy one. Mostly filled with success but there was also some misery. I keep on learning who I am and who I want to be and what I want to do. It all takes time and effort but I’m certain of one thing – I will get there & one of these days you’ll see my own brand on a shelf of your favorite perfume shop. It’s a promise. Even though we’re miles away (oops, another Madonna song) I think of you, my dear readers, as my friends. So please, sit together with me once you’re back home from work, send a little good thought my way and have something sweet – that would be like eating my birthday cake together. Turning 26 might bring new and unknown but I fear not for now. I’d rather look forward to it!
Perfume of the day shall be my staple Prada Amber Pour Homme. I have decided on my birthday treat which I can share with you in the comments but I’d like to write a special post about it once I finally have it with me. I need some more patience as it’s not available in Poland yet.
