Thank You + Chanel











Good morning! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend...

Thank you for all of the lovely birthday wishes you left me, friends! It was such a great day after working, we went out for an amazing dinner, had sweet and pretty cupcakes when we got home, I opened some unbelievably thoughtful and sweet gifts, and ended the night off watching "Coco Chanel". (with Shirley MacLaine)

The perfect day! And what a fantastic story! I love how the authentic and true journey of her life and career was captured. I won't give any details away, just in case you haven't watched it, but it was nice to learn certain things about her. I appreciate the brand now more than ever. While going to University, I had done a report on her and the brand. Chanel will always remain as my favorite brand. (with ChloƩ running at a super close second!) Have you watched that movie? What did you think?

  6. I agree - the younger actress was quite good - she had incredible emotion when needed and was sassy at times, as needed!

  7. Hi, Sarah, so sorry to be late here but happy belated birthday! It sounds like you had a lovely day. I'm a HUGE Chanel fan too and always have been. This collection is to die for. Enjoy your birthday month! (That's a new tradition I started a couple of years ago. You get to do/have whatever you want during the entire month.) :)
