Have you ever thought getting on a plane. No matter to where and with whom . The purpose of your journey will be to go up those gray heavy clouds only to see the sun. I have wondered that a lot of times myself. I want spring to come soon please!!!
Now thinking back, I always remember that February is always like that. 10 days to March!

in Beauty & Fashion Tags: Essence de Parfum, J’ adore L’Or
Inspired by J’adore, François Demachy created a fragrance made in the image of precious gold, from the choice of raw materials to the composition, and from the texture to the colour of the perfume. The noblest of raw materials mingle harmoniously in J’adore L’Or. Rose de Mai and Jasmin de Grasse enhance its floral bouquet whilst oriental notes add precious opulence to the fragrance.
John Galliano’s Masai-inspired bottleneck is re-interpreted for this new perfume bottle as an engraved golden thread. J’adore L’Or is packed by hand in a distinctive Dior presentation box.
Gorgeous, lovely and feminine!
I bought it at Christmas as a present to myself. I have to admit it was love at first … smell! I was in a shopping center for other reason and I end it up buying J’adore L’Or.
This is new fragrance, an additon to the Dior J’Adore line but different from the original. L’Or goes on a bit like an oil , it stays on skin a little longer and has a silky texture.
The bottle and the box are gorgeous and the fragrance is absolutely magnificent as well!
I am very fond of it, do not wait to try it …
I think Charlize Theron is a very good chosen representative of J’adore…

in Books Tags: Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
It’s 1946 and author Ashton can’t think what to write next. Out of the blue, she receives a letter from Dawsey Adams of Guernsey – by chance, he’s acquired a book that once belonged to her – and, spurred on by their mutual love of reading, they begin a correspondence. When Dawsey reveals that he is a member of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, Juliet’s curiosity is piqued and it’s not long before she begins to hear from other members. As letters fly back and forth with stories of life in Guernsey under the German Occupation, Juliet soon realizes that the society is every bit as extraordinary as its name.
This is fantastic story about the occupation of Channel Islanders of Guernsey during the Second World War told in letters. The book presents so vivid and smartly the life of a group of eccentric local people who came together those suspicious times and organised a book club. They talk about the books that they have read and by the time they helped and saved one another during their occupation by the Germans. However, one of the members, Elisabeth got arrested and sent to a concentration camp. She is a heroine, whose bright spirit and strength live on in the daughter she left behind.
