Yesterday, I was Alexander with a "terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day." Monday morning meetings, a rainy commute to work that resulted in the demise of my beloved Monet umbrella, getting splashed by a passing car on the street...you get the picture.
So I was particularly delighted to arrive home to find a lovely package waiting for me! I had recently won a giveaway from The City Sage, a fabulous design blog that inspires me daily. Anne's posts are original, oh-so eloquent, and spot-on for highlighting the cutting edge of design influence. Check out her blog!
The giveaway was a perfume set from Monyette Paris, which included a large candle, l'eau de toilette, and a travel-size perfume stick. The scent is both elegant and just plain sexy: a mixture of gardenia and white orchid (the classic and the exotic). And I LOVE this scent. I was excited to win, and thought I might give the items as gifts if I didn't like the scent. OH NO. They are MINE! Miss B, the creator the this scent (purchased by famed celebrities as Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Garner), also has to AMAZING blogs that I quickly added to my blogroll, The Bright Side Project and The Blah, Blah, Blahg (if you procrastinate like me, check this out!). Miss B sent me the sweetest note, which totally turned my Monday frown upside down! Sometimes the universe knows just when you need a little hug!
