Super grateful for all of the gifts that I have received for Christmas thus far! 
So many gorgeous things, and from brands I love! 

I absolutely adore Chanel & Chanel Beaute! When the below arrived, I nearly passed out! 

A true story!

My Mother said that back in the 70s, my Father bought her a large bottle of Chanel No. 5 perfume in Paris & she kept it on her dresser. {He was in the U.S. Air Force, and was traveling through Europe, heading stateside.} 
Chanel from Paris indeed!!

When I was around 5 years old, She said "I came through the house & the entire neckline of your white linen dress was soaked!" She immediately knew what happened by the scent and she said, "Melanie! What did you do?!" and I quietly replied. "I put on channel 5!" 
Hilarious! Right?!

This time of year brings back fond memories for us all!  
I hope you are having a wonderful holiday! I plan to do a little giveaway this week! 
So make sure to stay tuned! 

Merry, Merry! 

Enjoy!

The camellia was Coco Chanel's favorite flower! This is a camellia bookmark that slides over a page to mark & keep in place. Someone knows me well, I love to read! 
Will put to great use! 
  
In the bigger box is Chanel No. 5 bath powder, it smell divine! {I was told this is one of their holiday best sellers!} Lots of other goodies too!
