I had a rough day yesterday and felt really low. It happens quite frequently these days. It was one of those days where all I wanted to do was to hide and forget all about my life. Somehow I felt like a complete loser. I know that it’s not a big deal and that everyone feels like that from time to time, but it was a really dark hole I fell into yesterday. My way of dealing with it was to share how I felt with you on Instastories. I mean, that’s the problem, isn’t it?
Everything always looks so amazing on social media, everyone seems happy… but what to do when you don’t feel happy, when life doesn’t feel beautiful? I often feel like that, and I usually get the impression I am completely alone with these emotions.
Well, pretty much straight away I got a disrespectful comment along the lines of ‚You look like a ghost without makeup and lipstick. I’m going to have to unfollow you. Do your followers a favor and always remember to put on make-up.‘
So far, so shit.
But then came your reaction, and I was so touched by it that it brought tears to my eyes. I received sooo many lovely messages and encouragement from you. Many of you were as speechless as I was that a man would be capable of saying such a thing to a woman.
I want to tell you that I am so very thankful for your love and comments. Every single one of them made me smile! I really don’t know how to adequately express my gratitude. You are wonderful. THANK YOU! I simply cannot express how much the love you send my way every day means to me!
DI was in Milan this week, which meant – you guessed it – a bit of dolce vita for yours truly. Not too much though, sadly, my trip was quite a brief one. I love Italy and always enjoy wandering through beautiful Italian alleys. Could have easily stayed a bit longer, even though the entire trip was packed with work, meetings and refreshing my make-up.
But I had an awesome reason for the trip down south: Armani is launching a new fragrance, and invited me to Milan. Where else, right?
Armani is everywhere in this city – Armani Hotel, Armani Café, Armani Museum, Armani Theater, Armani whatnot. A new fragrance seems like a natural addition, especially since this scent was created to symbolize a perfect couple. But more on that later.
So, while those were busy days, the rest of the week was more quiet, which meant I had a chance to work off some items on my to do list. I already ticked one of those boxes the day before yesterday by posting part one of my comprehensive Taiwan guide. Next week I’ll hopefully have part two for you!
And before I forget: Happy Pentecost everyone!
I’m a little sad because I finished the Light Saga by Brent Weeks.
As some of you know already, I am a huge fan of epic fantasy stories, and always on the lookout for a new universe I can immerse myself in. The Light Saga was a great find, it describes a world in which magic and light are connected. It’s maybe a bit like an Arab version of Harry Potter, in as much as the plot is centered on a specific location, and the protagonist is a young student who is still in school. If you love corny hero stories with surprising plot twists, and if you don’t mind stories that sprawl out over several books, then look no further than the Light Saga. I, for my part, cannot wait for the next part!!
