Hope of Easter

It’s hard to believe that the first quarter of 2021 has already passed and that it’s time to celebrate Easter. But can we really celebrate? Last year Easter took place in the shade of coronavirus, as more countries and more people were affected by it. We were asked to isolate, to not meet with relatives and to make an exception and skip visits to churches despite Easter being the most important Catholic holiday. We did what we were asked to do and still the curve of new infections still continued to drop and rise up in its own rythm. It was hard to predict how things will look later.

And here we are today, one year later, at Easter time again. The world didn’t go back to normal and methinks that nothing will ever look the same after this pandemic. And while for many countries things start to look brighter, in Poland things have been getting worse. We just can’t seem to get a hold of the situation, our government is making weird decision which are not consulted with respective environments and they are being announced last minute. We are at the pitiful end in terms of new infections and deaths.

I didn’t expect that second Easter in a row will be so miserable and still highly affected by the pandemic situation in the country. I thought that by now things will get better but I was wrong. But Easter is all about hope and new beginnings so I’m grabbing hope by its hand and I’m not going to let it go. No matter what’s the situation in your living area, I hope you can celebrate this holiday in some way. I’m wishing you a peaceful & happy Easter, no matter what. Things are bound to get better soon, no? As long as we don’t give up, we are good. We all have a reason to keep going!

And please excuse me for not writing for a while – I had no interesting perfume to tell you about and there was more work that kept me busier. Hopefully soon I’ll have something to share with you.

Everyday is Birthday?

There are many sayings out there that tell you what kind of attitude we should have towards our life. You know those quotes like “live like there’s no tomorrow”, “live like every day is your last one”. But why nobody came up with this one – live like everyday is your birthday, huh? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a reason to celebrate on a daily basis? Since birthday is a special day to all people I think we would be much happier and in a better mood as mankind. On the other hand this would probably devaluate the importance of birthday celebration… And while birthday is just once a year there’s absolutely no reason to not try our best to feel happy and optimistic 365 days of the year.

Today is the day when I turn 31 and as long as I am healthy & happy, this is just a number that won’t affect my life in any negative way & I hope it will stay like this as long as possible so I don’t have to worry about it. It’s become a birthday tradition that I treat myself to a new perfume on this occasion but for the last few years I’ve proven to be very indecisive and I’d make my final decision few months after my birthday. But not this year! This time I actually made up my mind on time and my new treasure, a stunning bottle of Ormaie L’Ivree Bleue came to me on Monday. If you need a reminder of how it smells like please go back to my review. I’m glad to add it to my perfume wardrobe.

What else could I wear on my birthday than Prada Amber Pour Homme, a perfume that ignited my perfume passion? This flacon here is almost empty but worry not, I’ll get another one later.
