  • Don’t judge Pedro by his cover
    I don’t usually read the local newspaper with my morning coffee. Usually, I don’t read anything before I fully finish my breakfast as I’m not a morning person. Hell no.

  • Meet Christelle and follow her steps
    And little by little, her hair became longer, pinker, some jewelry showed up on her arms and neck, her flat shoes were changed into high heels and she started to buy some beautiful handbags.

  • Panties, trees and my lost self-esteem
    First, I think about adopting the “oh I didn’t see it” behavior if anybody asks. But who would have believed that I didn’t see a large piece a white cotton panty in this tree when it hangs right under my face? This would clearly be a lie. A big bold lie.

  • Please, could you stop lying and be the child you really are?
    What? I’m a not child. False. This is the biggest change from childhood to adulthood. When you grow up, you finally get to understand that adults are just kids trying to hide their fears, expecting to figure out where they are going and what is the aim of living the way they do, sometimes trying very hard to show that they control everything perfectly to …
  • Run faster, watch out and don’t look back.
    Dear reader, if you don’t want to read about excessive workload and corporations’ lives, go away. I’ve been waiting to write about this topic for a long time now.

She chose to purchase and show clothes, shoes, accessories and storage materials for her make-up. I’m not …
