Try

No regrets about where my life path led. Just memories. Good ones and bad ones. Today I want to share a short story about me and compliment it with a song.
When I was in high school I took drums lessons. My dream back then and for a few years after I finished school was to work on MTV in UK where I could combine both my love for music and television. It didn’t quite work that way and it was only until later in my life I worked for television and much-much later until I picked up the drum sticks again.
Today my son and daughter share my passion for music and they make me proud of their achievements. Sure I am aware that I am less talented than my son or daughter, still I believe I have the right to try and do my best. So here is a song with a special meaning.
This week will be exactly one year since I underwent brain surgery and all I can say is I will never stop living my life to the fullest. What is my idea of a full life? Learning. Experiencing. Feeling. Never stop trying. In our busy lives we get consumed with all the little details and we ignore our inner voice, we neglect our inner child. Except for when we get surrounded by kids. Then, when we actually have to look into their eyes, we are reminded how easy it is to nurture our thirsty soul by simply acknowledging its ageless status. Only then we find a greater meaning and an excellent example to guide us to happiness. Just Try.

A “click” with a click from Département Féminin

Back home and to my routine with lots to share with you from my vacation in the US and Greece. But before doing so, I must write about my latest buy as it had arrived home the day after I left for Greece and it was waiting for me for quite some time.
As soon as I saw the box – a white plain postal box sealed as a castle – I realized it would need my full attention to examine its contents. Something would keep me looking at it for a few hours sitting next to my desk, making me believe I should only open it without any distractions, in pure sanctity. I was asked at least three times: “Won’t you open this box? What is in it?” But I would ignore the voices and keep on with my chores. My feeling paid off – What a delight it was opening it after everybody went in bed. I felt like a kid sneaking under the christmas tree and opening my present early in the morning away from all the curious eyes.
It took a knife and some hard ripping to open the box. Once I opened it a rosy-musky smell reached my nose but couldn’t figure out where it came from, until I saw a little envelope with a beautiful thank you card. Then I had to remove a lot of paper protection from inside the box to find what looked like a smaller box with the shop’s name and logo: Département Féminin. Finally I realized there were two paper bags, one inside the other shaping a box. Inside them there was the final box I was looking for: “Balenciaga.” My Balenciaga Click was here!

I found Département Féminin when I was looking for a Balenciaga Compagnon wallet. My old one has been torn off but can’t part it, I want it replaced first. I didn’t find what I was looking for, but when I saw this cutie on their website, I simply could not resist. I was puzzled in the beginning as it seemed I couldn’t add anything in my online cart but once I contacted them, Chrystalla was more than simply helpful to explain to me that I would first have to create an account with them and let them know by email before I go on with my order. It couldn’t be easier and minutes later I was checking out with my Balenciaga Click. Shipment arrived on time and their packaging showed how much they value their clients. I had a wonderful shopping experience, as it had been promised by Chrystalla, and can’t thank them enough!
