Good morning, loves! Hope you're all having a wonderful start to the week.
I was lucky enough to have an extended weekend in honor of President's Day. Three days off = pure bliss to me!
J surprised me with a hotel stay at the Dream Downtown. Nothing like getting to stay in a hotel in your own city. Then we wandered the city for a few days playing tourists in our hometown.
Cafe & crepes in Chelsea Market, brunch at Pastis, strolling through the west village. And I even picked up a few new candles at Diptyque. Verveine which smells of so fresh of lemon verbena. One of my all time favorite scents. And I also picked up Foin Coupé which smells like a walk in the French countryside. If I can't be there, I might as well imagine that I'm there. But truly they are both to die for and my apartment smells just heavenly.
What more can a girl ask for? It was a true staycation in every sense of the word :)
So I'm starting this week off in a happy, peaceful frame of mind after a restful and fun-filled long weekend.
Wishing you much happiness and peace today and always!
