Two Gifts - For No Reason At All.

Recently I have received two gifts that made me happy.

One was a gift from me to myself. Last week, while my mom was in town, I had an opportunity to go an a wild shopping spree, something I have not done for a long time. My mother and I are very similar when it comes to purchasing; we both enjoy it immensely and never walk away from anything we like. We both share an avid interest in fashion, perfumes and makeup and can spend hours in a cosmetic store. This time was no exception.

I stumbled upon a new fragrance and immediately found the scent extremely appealing. The perfume was just right, in every aspect. I have not had that experience since I found my favorite perfume of all, "Light Blue" from D&G, about 5 years ago. This one is now a very close second. With such an endearing name, "Funny" from Moschino is the best gift I have given myself recently.

The next gift came in a wonderfully wrapped package with Irish stamps all over it. And a very neat handwriting. It contained an incredibly beautiful necklace of colourful stones and beads, handmade and exclusive.

The best gifts are gifts given for no reason at all.

The two "gifts" seem even to go together-visually!
These both seem light-hearted(what a great name for a perfume!)and even better--they are perfect for YOU. :-)

It's 'funny' how a couple of little things can make a girl feel so pretty and lovable.

Gift season has invaded your life all of a sudden... Good for you! Selecting a gift for oneself (not impulsive buying) is probably the toughest thing to choose. The wish list is usually so long!!!
You know for once I thought you would open that gift and discover that you have received another bottle of the same perfum.
Njoy the gifts

That's a gorgeous necklace! sometimes you just have to treat yourself, right? My favourite perfume is "Ma Griffe". I also like "Lamb".

"The best gifts are gifts given for no reason at all."

So true and some of the ones I got for no reason at all are the ones I treasure the most.

Zuzana said...

thank you so much, the Irishman will be happy to hear that.;)

glad to hear you share the same sentiment;) Thank you so much for stopping by again.;)

Wow, those are beautiful! I don't remember when I received a gift "just because." Usually they are to celebrate an occasion.

Then again, Emma always colors me pictures, so I guess that counts, doesn't it?

United Studies said...

I LOVE that necklace! It's beautiful.

I miss being able to wear perfumes. I have extremely bad reactions to fragrances, unfortunately. It wasn't always that way, but after Emma was born I suddenly couldn't wear them or use perfumed lotions.

Zuzana said...

the Irishman will be happy to hear that his gift is a hit.;))
Sorry about your perfume allergy, that is awful. I simply can not imagine not being able to wear a fragrance...
