✨ Happy New Year ✨

Thank you for following my blog this year. I am very grateful to meet you here ❤️ and share my passion for perfume and beauty with you. Writing this blog and making its photographs is really joyful and inspiring. I love to connect with you and read your comments.

As the year 2018 closes, the door of 2019 slowly opens like the door in House Bartolotti in Amsterdam. A new museum house next to the Herengracht canal I recently discovered and enjoyed visiting.

Which doors do you wish to open in 2019 ? What would you like to experience? I haven’t thought about it myself into very much detail but I am taking time to do this today.

Wishing you a joyful happy abundant and healthy 2019 filled with love, connection, laughter and beauty!

Blessings to you and all your loved ones, your furries as well! ❤️✨ See you in 2019 !

🎄Wishing You A Joyful Christmas!✨Feliz Navidad! 🎄

Wishing you and all your loved ones a joyful, relaxed and happy Christmas and Christmas Holidays!

Have you decided on your Christmas clothes or most importantly your perfume? I am still deciding on which Christmas fragrance to wear. Guerlain Winter Delice, a beautiful combination of vanilla and pine. Another choice would be balsamic warm MariaLux Mogadess for it’s scent reminiscent of Spanish Christmas Nougat (turrón blando) or soft elegant oriental floral INeke Evening Edged in Gold. My home will be smelling of Frankincense and Diptyque Oranger (a scented candle smelling of oranges and clove).

BIG Question? What fragrance will you be wearing on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day? Will you burn a special scented candle or essential oils to fragrance your home?

Have a wonderful Christmas 🎄, with love Esperanza 🌸

🎄Christmas Decorations in Amsterdam🎄

It’s only a few days to Christmas! I love to visit florist Menno Kroon in Amsterdam this time of year. He is a posh florist with absolutely stunning Christmas decorations. This year he decorated his flower shop mostly in red.

I liked the idea of red mushroom Christmas balls and loved the 3 metres high artificial Christmas trees (see photographs) As I have a cat, I don’t do Christmas trees anymore. This year I bought new plastic red and silver Christmas balls at the discount store Kruidvat to replace the glass ones.  You can see the new decorations on Instagram if you follow me on there.

The artificial 3 metres high Christmas trees at florist Menno Kroon and their decorarions were absolutely magnificent. I wonder how cats would react to a tree like this one? My ginger cat Rubio would probably try to climb in this tree.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Question: What do you think? Do you like these decorations? Have you decorated your home for the holidays? Did you change the colours this year?
