Happy this year

First off, join me for a glass of champagne while I talk about the passing year.

It’s been a year since I turned 30 and that birthday wasn’t the one I felt the need to celebrate. I was actually quite depressed (even though my friends kept telling me it’s the best decade to be in) and I didn’t feel happy and didn’t really celebrate much.

Consequently, the year was difficult and I am sincerely glad it is behind me. I am looking forward to this year being the starting point of much better things to come so I am celebrating it with everyone, and that will include all my wonderful virtual (blogger) friends.

And since we are here in the middle of the winter, it’s snowing and it’s going to continue snowing for the next 5 days, I am starting to fantasize of all the warm days to come so I want to give you something to remind you of warmer days to come: a 10 ml decant of PdN Eau Turqoise, 10ml of Kenzo Peace and 5ml of both, The Six scents series 1, No. 1 and Givenchy Organza 2008 Fleurs d’oranger.

Just comment to enter (until end of Sunday, 14). 🙂

    Happiest of birthdays, Ines!! I hope you are planning to do something fun!!I found turning 29 and 39 *excruciating* in the extreme, and then the day I turned 30/40, poof!! It all went away like it never happened. Now I say I don't far turning 50– I fear turning 49!Anyway– this is your day. Again, I hope it is a special one.

    LCN, I thought you were no older than 35! You seem younger than what you wrote about your age.I think what hit me with 30 is that I am no longer young enough not to be troubled by the life problems the twenties don't have. And I still feel no older than 25. 🙂 Now only if I looked like that too… ;)Thank you for the wishes!
