And just like that we’re in October. Full of fresh fashion week memories, full of energy to take on the new season, yet exhausted by the intense schedule September comes with. Obviously mine wasn’t that crazy – fashion wise – I simply couldn’t go to Paris with being restricted to eat out. I mean, one of the things you want to do when you are in Paris is eating out, right? So whilst living on top of my social media accounts, keeping a close eye on all that was happening, I tried to prepare for the last step in this thyroid situation: a one time radiation treatment. After this I’ll be free of the bad stuff in my body – though it feels so contradicting to do this by putting radioactive iodine in my body to get accomplish that – and a fresh start will be in place.
And with fresh starts – hold on, I’m going to take a fun side road – I will need to program my brain to focussing on the good things after this treatment. Looking back at the past months have been heavy and surreal, and I would love to leave this behind me. And as music brings back memories, so do the smell of the ocean, freshly washed towels, and the perfume of your first boyfriend. Smells – good or bad – are little links between moments in your life, and those became memories. Therefore, I want to start fresh with a new perfume. However if there is one thing I’m horrible at it’s picking a new perfume. So when the new Armani Sì perfume came knocking on my door I could only welcome it in warmly. I have smelled it whilst shooting these photos, and the scent was up my street: fresh and feminine. I will wait until the 16th to really use it, when it will mark the start of a new phase in my life. A phase post-thyroid-cancer, in which I feel stronger than ever, and ready to take on new adventures.
