birthday with bond no. 9

{happy birthday to me}

i’ve survived a major milestone – TWENTY-FIVE!  yep, it’s official – i’m not getting any younger. however, this birthday has been one of the most fun birthdays i’ve had in a long time.  it consisted of a full night out with my hus and a FABULOUS group of friends.

a couple of days later (because i like to drag my birthday out as long as possible…it’s only once a year!) we had birthday lunch with the hus’ family.  fam lunches are always good, but this one is at the top of the list.  THE GIFT!  i’ve had Bond No. 9 Bleecker Street perfume on my christmas/birthday/half-birthday list for EVER!  some things i’ve stopped putting on my list after realizing no one is willing to cough up the dough (Burberry scarf, Chanel bag, apartment in NYC… yes, i live in a dream world. ), but this perfume is one i couldn’t give up on.  and now i no longer have mooch off the free samples at GLO, which i’ve been doing for years!

{best ever}

this perfume (thanks, sis-in-law!!!) is uh-mazing! here’s the website’s description:

Art, fashion, seduction, and dessert in liquid form.  A warm and sensual aphrodisiac that glides from day into evening.   Notes: Violet leaf, cassis, jasmine, cinnamon, oakmoss.

side note: this is the only perfume my hus has ever complimented me on without prompting him.  i’m going to neither confirm nor deny that he’s put a few sprays on himself.  it’s meant women and men though!  probably why he likes it so much.

most of my other birthday gifts were in the form of gift card or u.s. currency (thank you mom, mom-in-law and sister!), so i’m thinking i need to buy something…leather?!  new jacket perhaps?  in my own words, “i need one!”  thinking this one from Zara…thoughts?

off to put on some more perfume!
