Chanel Beauty House

Chanel Beauty House

A few weeks prior to March 1st, I received a package in the mail. It was very unexpected. The young man with the post said “From Chanel”. I was taken aback, mainly because I did not order anything. And I’m usually the one who gifts myself, especially since I love my Chanel. Upon opening the package, there was a scene viewer, I hadn’t seen one of those in a very long time. And in the viewfinder there was the invite to the Chanel Beauty House

Apparently, there was a Chanel pop-up shop called the Chanel Beauty house on Sunset Boulevard that was opening to the public March 1st through the 4th. These cute little viewfinders, were for a private party on March 1st at 7 p.m. for there will be live music and open bar.

Isn’t this what dreams are made of? After this, I went home and ordered 2 vanities in a similar style, a small one for travel and a large one for my bedroom to do makeup in.
Both have already come in handy. Thank you Chanel, you clever people.

Relating to the vanity that I mentioned earlier, the small vanity was connected to an ipad and had an app where you can try on different lipsticks. Too neat!

Happy New Year 2018

Happy New Year! Let’s congratulate ourselves and one another for getting through that last one. It was a trying time for most people I know. The majority I’ve met, talked to or seen messages from say Goodbye. As a group, we all say good riddance! Bring on the New Year of 2018 and make it better, if only by a margin. There were so many things that happened, so many lives upheaved and destroyed. So many lives lost; be it from natural disaster and destruction to man made violence and terror. My heart breaks for the world.

Personally, it was a traumatic year, honestly, the hardest of my life. Somehow, we survived. I lost my baby last February, and it still feels the same every day. The pain that I feel is tremendous and I don’t think my heart will ever heal from it. Almost 13 years with her, since she was but 5 weeks old and having met her the day she was born.  She and Amoura are my world, my daughters.

And then in July, I became my mother’s full time caregiver after a very serious work injury. 6 months later and I am still her full time caregiver. All my respect to those who do this for years, it’s very hard, for both sides.  There is no easy way to care for a fellow adult, much less one that is related. I’m hoping this year that her recovery will be full, after surgery I’m sure.   But, any progress is welcome in the situation.

Amoura loves her outings with Mommy. On this day we went to The Grove so that she could see the Christmas decorations. She had a marvelous time and, of course, everyone is always in love with Momo.

A lovely evening in Beverly Hills at the Golden Triangle. This was during the lighting. It was okay. Could have been better but we had a good time anyway. | Also, The gorgeous tree!
Santa over The Grove. Always, so so busy.

MoMo outside See’s Candies wating for her caramel. She’s allowed inside but she prefers to await her sweets with viewers.
And looking so pretty for sweets and Santa. Here she is, in her beautiful houndstooth sweater in the charming colors of baby pink and a darling grey.
New Years Eve was quiet around here. It was brought in by a Plain Cheesecake with lemon curd and frosted blueberries. Such perfect colors for New Years.
