small packages are the best

Well, small packages wrapped in white paper with the inter-linking Cs discreetly printed on, and black Chanel ribbon.  Inside my fave No 5 perfume and with a little black wax seal on - parfum!   Just a teeny tiny dab needed.  Thanks Huzz.

And inside the Chanel gift bag were some very nice freebies from the Chanel Precision Sublimage range (all in a little travel case) together with perfume samples. Huzz must have put on the full charm to get such a bounty!

Don't you find that getting samples from the beauty counters is sometimes like pulling teeth?  There's a scene in one of my favourite movies 'Friends with Money' starring Jennifer Anniston, Catherine Keener, Francis McDormand and Joan Cusack - have you seen it?  Olivia (JA) is absolutely broke working as a maid. She visits a few department stores trying to get her hands on free samples of a new Lancome product. She's asking for one for herself and one for her 'friend', and oh how mean the sales stafff are with these precious little samples!   Is there some kind of rationing with these freebies do you know?!

Anyhow, another week has started which looks pretty full already.  Hope you had a great weekend.


  1. Friends with Money was such a good movie!

  2. I loved that film...
    And N°5 will always make me think of my mum... Her favourite... :)

  3. Belated Happy Birthday! And I know they say you pay for it, but isn't beautiful packaging just the most luxurious thing and Chanel do it so well.

  4. How could I have forgotten about that film? I really need to watch it again, it's so hilarious.
    Lovely package, by the way :)

  5. i love free samples :):):) they are so cute.
