Another year older...

Twas my birthday yesterday and I wanted to show off a couple of yummy pressie's I received from my sweet husband and gorgeous children.

When SH asked what it was I wanted for my birthday I immediately piped up and said "A bottle of Chanel Mademoiselle!" before he barely finished the sentence hehe and can you believe this is my very first bottle of Chanel? Don't ask me what took me so long lol. I guess I have my favourites and tend to stick to them. This incredible fragrance is definately now my new favourite scent. And it's pink too! I'm so thankful, I couldn't have wished for anything more :)

My beautiful babies also surprised me with handmade cards and these exquisite hot pink roses - courtesy of their dad :)


Haha I'll never make it as a stylist LOL ;)






That evening a few close friends and family and I had an AMAZING meal at our local pub, which is actually more like a resort these days after their extensive renovations. I had a lovely evening, with fantasic conversation, a bunch of laughs and little too much champagne lol. Thank you dear friends for your cherished gifts and wonderful company. I will remember it always :)

I love Chanel, my husband loves it too so he makes sure I have it. I went about 8 years with a different scent but now I am back to Chanel. We are so chic, non?

Happy birthday to you, dear one! I am so glad it was a good one. And you are looking so beautiful, I can tell you are being treated right!

Blessings,
Melissa

I found your blog while surfing through the net.

Happy Birthday to you from Germany!

Another coincidence... Coco mademoiselle is next to Angel from Thierry Mugler also my favourite parfum for falls and winters.

Greetings from Germany

Many happy returns! I will have to pay a visit to the cosmetic counters to have a sniff of your new perfume - if it smells as good as it looks I might have to put it on my birthday list too!
