I am still lounging by the pool while writing this, but I wanted to share my blissed out state of perfumed contentment with all of you.
On our trip to Venice (more about all of it to follow once I’m home), I found a gorgeous perfume to make me happy.
The very Italian Santa Maria Novella Vaniglia is hitting all my fragrance-related buttons. Warm, cosy, elegant, deep, scrumptious and utterly delightful, Vaniglia is exactly the kind of deep, dark vanilla I have been looking for.
On another note, yesterday my blog hit 1 Million visits. I’m quite floored by that number actually and incredibly happy and grateful to all of you who visit, read or comment. A big thank you from the bottom of my heart!
See you soon,
Glad you are having a lovely time Birgit. That photo of the boys is just perfect! They are adorable.
Oh and Congrats on the 1 million hits!!
Thanks dear Lavanya! We’re having a good time!
1,000,000???? Let’s celebrate by sharing your new vanilla fragrance!!
Good idea! 🙂
Congratulations, Birgit! Very well deserved. I love your style. The boys didn’t look like they had any fun .. not a bit!! 😉
Not a bit, Amy! 😉
A million kisses to you. Lounge on.
Will do! xx
So happy for your blissed out perfume state. Of course you have sent me into a googling lemming frenzy 🙂
Wonderful, joyful pic. Enjoy the rest of your holiday and many congrats on a well deserved 1m hits.
I will send you some Vaniglia, it’s so lovely, Tara!
Thanks very much, B! I’m still looking for my HG vanilla.
Me too! 🙂 SMN Vaniglia is great and it’s close, but the search is not over… 😉
Ditto with Tara on the googling lemming frenzy! Your boys look so happy! Keep having a wonderful vacation!
Hehehe, sorry I have created a lemming. 😉
Oh and P.S. Congratulations on a million visits!
Thank you very much!!!
One million, wow! Congratulations! I am so glad you’re enjoying your holiday and look forward to seeing the beautiful photos … Oh, and all about that one perfume in Venezia. 🙂
More photos and stories to come once we are home. 🙂
Congratulations on the million! Keep lounging and enjoying 🙂
I’ll do that! 😉 Thank you!
Count me in on the lemming frenzy!
Brava bella signora!! 1 Million molto bene!! I sure do wish I was in Italia!
We could enjoy a drink by the sea and talk perfume… 🙂
1 million is incredible…congratulations! Sounds like you are having a beautiful vacation as well. Can’t wait to hear about Venice. One of my all time favorite movies is “Bread and Tulips”…through that movie I have visited Venice many times. Enjoy!!
Thank you very much, Heather!
To my shame I must confess I never saw that movie… that needs to be rectified!
Congratulations on one million views, dear Birgit! I look forward to hearing more about your trip soon.
Thank you, my dear Jim!
one million view, that’s amazing! Well done!
Thanks, Jane! 🙂
ONE MILLION!! You deserve every one Birgit. Enjoy your holiday and new fragrance,
Portia (Jin is snoring HELLO from the other room)
M snores right back at Jin! 😉
Thanks, dear Portia, a million kisses to you!
Love me a good vanilla perfume! Well, all but the most dark and treacly sort, certainly.
The boys look so full of beans – glad they are still letting you lounge around – I am sure you need it…:-)
And many congratulations on the million milestone!
Thanks, dear V!
The boys are getting more and more self-sufficient, which is fantastic! 🙂
A state of perfumed contentment sounds like a perfect vacation. Enjoy your time with your family. They grow up too fast. Also, congrats on 1 million hits!
Thank you, Poodle! xx
Keep enjoying your vacation and come back to start climbing the next million (very impressive!!!).
I will, thank you! 🙂
Congratulations on hitting the one million mark, Birgit! I’d love to know how many of those visits are mine … lots and lots, I think, because I love it here. 🙂
(As clearly many readers do … for once I’m in with the in crowd!) 😉
That’s so lovely of you to say, dear Suzanne! Thank you. xxxx
