A package arrived this morning from one of my best friends in Iceland and I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened it: two Astrid Lindgren books, another book and candy for the children and Chanel for me! I was like a kid at Christmas. Let me add that Christmas in June is a wonderful idea.
The last time I talked to my friend on the phone we were talking about make-up, among other things, and I told her I had seen this beautiful pink/peach nail polish from Chanel, Pêche Nacrée (515), from their spring collection (it's categorized under beige colours at Chanel). I had no idea she was writing it down and plotting to buy it for me! And she also got me the Canari (697) Aqualumière gloss. It's fabulous.
I cannot wait to show the children what they got when they come home from school today because they had the Astrid Lindgren's Mardie book on the left (Madditt in Icelandic), but it somehow got lost when we moved to Belgium last year and they were so disappointed. When I tried to order it again it was no longer available but my friend found them a brand new copy at a book market. She also gave them Lindgren's Lotta's Bike with beautiful colour illustrations by Ilon Wikland.
I hope you're having as fabulous Friday as I am!
