Oxford: The City of Dreaming Spires

The quickly approaching end of May can mean only one thing: a bank holiday! And its the perfect excuse for a mini (or not so mini if you have planned ahead) getaway! Last year, I remember I had organised a mini trip to not so far away, Oxford for my name day. The weather was great (a bit chilly) and the green scenery simply stunning.

A little fact about this city: Oxford is known as "the city of dreaming spires", a term coined by poet Matthew Arnold.

What are your plans for the forthcoming bank holiday? I hope the weather will not be disappointing. I am currently organizing my break (a long one this time) and I will get back to you with photos and ... hopefully a nice tan!

Have a great weekend!!

Rose 31 by Le Labo

I am one of those girls who does not wear a signature fragrance. I am loyal to other things, but when it comes to perfume I am spoiled for choice. It all depends on my mood, the weather, the time of year, what I am wearing and so on... I have recently discovered Le Labo and I cannot get enough of Rose 31. If I ever would have 1, this is a strong candidate for sure.

I recently visited Le Labo in 28A Devonshire Street and I had the bottle engraved with my name so as to give it a more personal touch. They made the perfume right in front of me and I chose the travel tube so that it is easy to carry in my bag. It smells divine! Go have a look and tell me what you think :-)

Have a great weekend!!
