Missed my anniversary


It seems since this is the fifth, I would have remembered the date by now.

Seems I was very wrong. πŸ™‚

I haven’t been a very proficient writer the past couple of years but I somehow still managed to keep my blog alive and I certainly hope I will keep on doing that for quite a long time in the future as well.

As it’s my 5th blogging anniversary (or was on the 20th), I want to celebrate it by doing a little give-away.

3 lucky winners will get some Croatian chocolate and one of three of the following decants: Cuirelle, Dries Van Noten and Parfum de Therese.

You can state your preference in the comments. The draw closes Wednesday midnight.


P.S. And please leave a way of contacting you so I can notify the winners (sometimes winners forget to check back they won something).

    Happy Anniversary! I’m glad you keep writing and are keeping your blog alive! I know how busy you’ve have been lately. No need to enter me into the draw. I just wanted to wish you the best. Thanks for writing. I enjoy reading your entries.

      Thank you Tatiana!
      Yes, I’ve been struggling with quite a lot of work lately and then writing comes last.

      Thank you dear Birgit! πŸ™‚
      I have so many drafts of posts (when I’m in a creative phase) and then it takes forever later to finish them.

    Ines, it seems that most of the bloggers forget their anniversary if they have piles of other work to do! Don’t worry, the readers are here to check and support! Happy B-day to your blog and may all your intentions for its future come true! I don’t think that writing every day is a high proof for someone’s abilities to express anything through words! The devoted fans and friends will always visit your place and share their virtual life with you! Smile!
    I am into giveways as far as I can try something new, intriguing, challenging…I had a sniff of Frederic Malle’s scents and I prefer Cuirelle as a choice, and I really, really cannot resist a whole Dorina Ledena by Kras!!! Thank you for the chance!


    • Ines March 24, 2014 at 10:52 Reply

      Ha! You know your Kras chocolates! πŸ™‚
      If you’re the lucky winner, I’ll be sure to put some Ledena chocolates in your package.

      Thank you for reading my blog! πŸ™‚

        Bajaderas and the chocolate dragees are best, as well! πŸ™‚ Well, I don’t eat them on a regular basis, since they are not imported here, but when I travel, I make sure to get some. And sometimes I hide the dragees from my daughter, because she makes them disappear in a flash…

    Dear Ines, happy 5th blog’oversary. Cheers to many more years to come πŸ™‚
    No need to enter me either, as you know I already have some of the three, now to the chocolates… πŸ˜‰

      Thank you dear Asali. πŸ™‚ I know you have all 3, but chocolates, they disappear rather quickly… πŸ˜‰

    Congratulations on your 5th blog birthday, Ines! It’s lovely whenever you post and I’m glad you intend to continue for the foreseeable.

    I will be selfish and ask to be entering in the draw please because I’d love to try Cuirelle πŸ™‚


    • Ines March 24, 2014 at 19:34 Reply

      Thank you very much Tara! It’s not selfish, I wish more people were deciding to participate, the rate we’re going, all entrants will win something. πŸ˜‰
      I think you might like it, people I never suspected had any interest in perfume comment how nice I smell when I wear it.

    Dearest Ines, it’s no small thing to keep a blog going for years, and to make it a place where faithful readers enjoy visiting and interacting with you. You’ve done it and I hope will continue to do so. Congratulations on your 5th year anniversary!

    I usually don’t enter the drawings anymore, but I wouldn’t mind trying for a decant of Le Parfum de Therese, as I love it. Count me in, pretty please. πŸ˜‰


    • Ines March 24, 2014 at 19:35 Reply

      Dear Suzanne, thank you! Your comments always make me smile and feel very good about myself. πŸ™‚
      I can relate to wanting a bit more Parfum de Therese, it’s truly a beautiful thing. (Asali agrees) πŸ˜‰

    Happy Blog-o-versary, Ines! I always forget mine, too! No need to put me in the draw, but thank you!


    • Ines March 24, 2014 at 19:37 Reply

      Thanks Carol! πŸ™‚
      Time flies, which is also one of the main reasons I haven’t been replying to my emails lately.

    Congratulations on your anniversary, Ines.

    It’s always lovely to read your thoughts, and Sprog (15) was quite taken with your photos when you were showing the fab. knitted caps!

    cheerio, Anna in Edinburgh:-)


    • Ines March 24, 2014 at 19:37 Reply

      Thank you Anna! πŸ™‚ The caps are really wonderful and the best thing is that the weather is perfect for wearing them.

    I’m fairly new to the perfume blogging scene, but I enjoy your posts immensely and so many congrats on reaching your 5th year!! I’m shamelessly going to ask to be entered into the draw and equally shamelessly say I have no preferences – I’d like to try any of the 3 as I’m not familiar with them. And as for choco – well – nuff said…


    • Ines March 24, 2014 at 22:09 Reply

      Thanks Sally! πŸ™‚
      You’re in! And hopefully you get lucky, it’s always great when you win something new to try.

    Hi Ines. Congratulations on your 5th anniversary. I hope you keep it up – I know how hard it can be to do it, especially in between the demands of a busy life! All the best. No need to enter me in the draw either.


    • Ines March 25, 2014 at 10:04 Reply

      Thank you Michael! I also hope I manage to keep it up. I will certainly do my best. πŸ™‚

    Happy, happy 5th!! A huge congratulations on your anniversary, my dear! No need to enter me in the drawing. I just wanted to stop by and celebrate with you. 5 years is fantastic! πŸ™‚


    • Ines March 25, 2014 at 10:06 Reply

      Thanks Kafka!
      I can’t believe it’s been 5 years already! The time really flies…


  12. Undina March 25, 2014 at 03:29 Reply

    I almost missed your almost missed anniversary!

    Congratulations! I hope you’ll keep it up for at least another 5 πŸ˜‰

    I would have passed on the draw if it was only for perfumes but chocolate… Please enter me! πŸ™‚ As to the perfumes, my first choice would be Cuirelle but I wouldn’t mind Dries Van Noten.


    • Ines March 25, 2014 at 10:07 Reply

      Ha, Undina, no celebration is right without chocolate! πŸ˜‰
      Thanks, you’re in!

    Congratulations on 5 years my dear! And don’t worry about forgetting…I do it on a daily basis! I would say don’t enter me in the draw, but I’m a sucker for chocolates and have always wanted to try Le Parfum de Therese! Here’s to the next 5 years! xoxoxox Steve


    • Ines March 27, 2014 at 15:11 Reply

      Thank you Steve! πŸ™‚
      And I can’t believe I managed to convince most perfumistas to participate in the giveaway due to chocolate. πŸ˜‰

    Many congrats on your 5th anniversary and so sorry I am late wishing you well – I was away on the key date and not reading blogs that week. Though even for the person celebrating, it is easy to miss these things – the longer we’ve been blogging the harder it is to keep track of such things… πŸ˜‰


    • Ines April 1, 2014 at 09:21 Reply

      Thanks Vanessa! πŸ™‚
      Good wishes are never late. And I tend to agree with you, I wouldn’t know which anniversary it was but for checking the date of the first post. Time sort of flies by me faster than I imagine…
