  5. I hope your husband is reading! My iPhone case is Kate Spade and is white with gold hearts. I love it so much. While I could never afford a YSL purse, I can still be spoiled with my iPhone case.

    1. You know what is super funny, I sent him the collage to see if he liked it (hint, hint, hint), and she said he loved the way it looked without showing any interest in the products that they represent! I love that Kate Spade iPhone case! But if I could choose what I really wanted, it would definitely be that YSL purse! It is so gorgeous in person that I can barely tear myself away from it!

    1. Oh yeah, those are the two that are screaming "buy me." The scary thing is that in the last couple of months we have easily triples the cost in veterinary expenses between Fannie dying, and Lola and Milo getting sick!

  11. I'm hyperventilating over the two pink YSL pieces. Too gorgeous for words! I am looking forward to your review of the Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille. It sounds a bit like Chergui which I love. I'm hoping maybe Scentbird will have it now or soon so I can try it

    1. You and me both, Allison! I would be so thrilled to have them both! Tobacco Vanille is such a rich and sublime scent! If it is anything like Chergui, then I think that you will really love it. The vanilla is creamy and warm, and it beautifully offsets the tobacco. It is my very favorite fragrance from Tom Ford. If you are anywhere near a Tom Ford counter, they can make you a sample to try!
