Friday Raffle, Graduation and Birthday

Today my little one is graduating from pre-K, so I am sorry, no review will be coming. Instead, let's have a celebratory prize draw. For a chance to win a set of 12 Histoires de Parfums samples, please leave me a note in your comment. The winner will be randomly chosen and announced on Tuesday.

But most importantly, Happy Birthday to our wonderful, witty, talented Tom! Tom, you are the best!

Have a great weekend, everybody!

"Pre-K Graduation" - what a cute picture:-) Time flies ... (resists Groucho Marx moment!).

Don't worry about the raffle (not expecting you to tangle with international post): I'm trying to get the samples from La Belle France for myself, since you piqued my curiosity;-)

have a great weekend,
