This was going to be a rant, but the situation became rather humorous to me, so I may include more dry irony than exclamation marks.
Since we moved, I have been frequently ordering things for the new home (ie. furniture, decorative elements etc.) Getting them delivered has proved to be quite the hassle. At first I thought it was because the intercom on the ground floor had not been changed to include our name and the deliveries were unable to include my detailed instructions on which name to buzz. I eventually scotch taped our name over the old occupants’. Six months after our entry in the building, the name was finally changed. But for some reason all these efforts didn’t help to make deliveries happen smoother.
So… regardless of all these difficulties in getting my purchases delivered, I still seem unhindered in ordering things to be delivered.

I seem to be on a scent quest lately with all these perfume posts. I don’t know why, but I hope you all like it. I promise diversity will return to my blog right after the holidays!
I was thinking about all of the home scents that I love this time of year, and obviously my first idea is to share them all with you here. Perhaps it is because yesterday as I was walking up the steps of the building I could smell the fir tree that our building’s guardian put up in the entry hall, perhaps it is the delight of coming home to an apartment that smells lovely and the rapidly approaching Christmas day… But I am avid about holiday scents this time of year. I have four, yes four, diffusers just in the living room! These also are great gift idea for those of you who are not sure what to get people at the last minute! 😉
Here are my favorites, not in any particular order :
Fir Balsam by Geodesis. It smells like Christmas trees and warm Christmas cheer! They sell it in candle and spray form as well.
I am also crazy about L’Occitane’s Rameau d’Hiver scent. It too smells just like a winter Christmas tree. It brings out the nostalgia and the childhood memories.
Kasia Dietz is a pretty regular subject on my blog. I want to share with you all some of her recent achievements.
Her Pop Art and City Bag collection, plus a sneak peek preview of her upcoming collection and her new found popularity in Hong Kong fashion!
U Magazine did a spread on Paris Style and included a piece on Kasia’s work! Congrats to this fabulous expat designer on getting a great start on conquering the Asian market!
