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.

Oscar for a birthday

When February starts drawing to a close the eyes of many people start watching towards Hollywood, for this is the time of the year when the Oscars ceremony is held. Academy Awards will be offered to best actors, actresses and in many more categories for the 91st time in history. Even if you’re not a connoisseur and you watch movies only occasionally you would probably still have a small spark of interest in this great gala. There’s always a lot of buzz around what famous people are going to wear and who will leave the event holding a statuette in their hands. Has any of you ever given a thought if all those people we know from big and small screens actually wear perfume for such occasion?


To me the Oscars is also a sort of personal celebration since it’s been multiple times in the past and this year is also one of those when the gala in Los Angeles coincides with my birthday. Of course I am not famous, I haven’t portrayed any meaningful roles so I definitely wouldn’t suit to appear on the red carpet… But that’s totally okay. To some extend all birthdays are like the Oscars – they make you think of your achievement from the last year of your life and about things you still want to & could do in the future. And by the way, who, if not each of us plays a leading role in their own life? Nobody can do that for us. That’s why I say yes! Yes, we all deserve an Oscar, even if just an imaginary one. Maybe even in more than just this one category, ha?

For many years I’ve been celebrating my birthday in a cameral way. I don’t like to throw big parties. A calm afternoon with my parents is what I would choose instead. We can have a flute of champagne and a piece of cake at a comfort of our home. I don’t need much more to feel happiness on my special day. I don’t expect gifts but maybe mom and dad got me something small. I plan to treat myself to something nice and I’ve been really wanting to buy a new perfume lately. I just don’t know what fragrance it’ll be yet. As I spend a lot of time on my blog you’re all invited to celebrate my 29th birthday. We are family after all, aren’t we? I’m glad to have you around for so many years.
