Potential Abuse from Stepfather

At the age of 12 I lost my biological father from a rapid stroke. I’ve witnessed the moment when the stroke happened and when his body was convulsing on the sofa while I watched and cried terrified. A few years later by my encouragement, my mother registered on the single dating site. She successfully found this man who might be the beginning of all my next troubles. Maybe a whole year has passed by and I as a fresh model was insisting to live in the capital city of Poland as it was easier for m...

Ringing as a Lark

There are days when one feels especially vulnerable and thin-skinned as if made of easy-to-shatter porcelain. On those days one needs a perfume that serves as armor. Or a cocooning fragrance that surrounds with tenderness. Both types are saviors. If you are longing for tenderness, then one of the best saviors that envelops you in silk and gives you wings is vintage Calandre. The name of the...
