As if January didn’t pass by quickly enough, February definitely did. Although, in February’s defense, it’s missing some days. I always feel a little bad for those who’s birthday is on the 29th. When do you celebrate then? I always celebrate my birthday for a good month, you know, I just keep on using the “it’s almost my birthday” or “it was my birthday the other day” excuse. Either way, February was a pretty, pretty GREAT month.
(Took this on the boardwalk in Ostend, the sunsets are finally returning)
I did a lot of things, including visiting Sevilla (I’m sure you’ve been able to read all about that gorgeous place on my blog) & visiting the Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen to cheer on my favorites (Real Madrid CF) while they were playing their first round of 18 game versus Schalke 04 (spoiler alert: we won and there may or may not be a video on the world wide web of the second goal with an embarrassing Naomi screaming in the background) (I get pretty intense when it comes to sports or anything I love, really).
I’m still on the search for a job, being a graduate is pretty rough at times. So if you want to hire me… Kidding. But only sort of.
I’ve received so many comments over the past couple of weeks, thank you endlessly for visiting, reading & commenting on my posts. I appreciate it more than I can say. You are all wonderful humans and I heart you all. I am still trying my hardest to reply to every single comment & visit your blog as well of course. So feel free to leave your URLS behind.
The new look is also on it’s way, you may have noticed a different header for now, and I’m excited to (most likely) launch it in March, if not next month then April!

I’ve been fascinated by the legendary Chanel N°5 perfume ever since I saw a little bottle years & years ago on the night stand of a friend. Back in college I ended up having to work on a French marketing project and we had to present a certain French product and “(re)-introduce” that product during a festival or event. I chose Chanel N°5 and I’ve been madly in love ever since.
Their commercials are visual pieces of art, whether you like the smell of the perfume or not. Chanel obviously has an endless budget and can create the most magical commercials, but my God, those commercials, they’re so beautiful.
Today I wanted to review the actual Eau Première perfume.
As you can see the bottle I bought today is just a re-fill perfume bottle, it contains 60ml and is (way) smaller than the original one. (Less classy as well). Chanel is, as we all know, definitely not cheap, but considering you literally only need to spray once for an entire day, it’s worth the money.
I prefer the scent of the “Eau Première” compared to the traditional N°5 smell. It’s a little lighter, smells ‘fresher’ and is more suitable for every-day use . It contains all the original ingredients: jasmine (my favorite scent in the world), neroli, rose absolute and ylang-yland. Did you know the Jasmine Chanel uses for their perfume comes from fields Chanel owns in Grasse? Mind is blown.
And to quote Marilyn Monroe: “What do I wear in bed? Why? Chanel N°5 of course”
I also wanted to share their newest commercial for the original Chanel N°5 featuring the stunning Gisele Bündchen. The soundtrack is a mesmerizing cover of “The One That I Want”, originally written by John Farrar, sang by John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John and obviously very well known because of Grease.
What do you think of their newest commercial? Too much or just enough? And are you someone who loves to wear perfume, if so, what’s your favorite fragrance?
