oh dear. oh dear. CHANEL have branched out into LOADS of sports ‘gear’. I ACTUALLY need a helmet and this is thee one.
While I’m at it I might ‘upgrade’ my bicycle (Betty) to this swish new CHANEL (Coco) bicycle.
Well, one can but hope…
Bleeding CHANEL Tee, £???.
I got this amazing CHANEL Tee for Christmas from James. It’s got a slashed neck which can sit off one/both shoulders; very pretty.

I’ve been quite poorly this last week, in and out of the doctors, and I’ve even had my first blood test! (Nothing serious!) So apart from pulling together some very expensive wish-lists, I’ve also been trying to wish away the next two weeks (and 5 days – but whats 5 days between friends?!) so I can be off on my jollies! I’m beyond excited! I’m so worn out and in desperate need of this holiday I cannot even begin to tell you!
We’re going to Zakynthos (Zante – Kalamaki) in Greece- never ever been to Greece before so thoroughly looking forward to it.
So here’s some pretty pics of where we’re off to!
We’ve booked direct through the hotel, and got separate flights – which worked out about millions pounds cheaper first off! But we’ve found out that through the travel agents you can only get a TWIN room, at the back of the hotel. We’ve managed to bag ourselves one of the DOUBLE rooms at the top overlooking the pool (see above photo). So very excited about that! We’re right beside the beach, in quite a quiet area, which is what we so very desperately wanted and we get a private car from the airport! bonus! We’re flying from Gatwick, which is cool, flown from there before, its a great airport – we love our airports, it where the holiday begins really! So we’re be getting there 6 hours early ;o
Also, just beside our beach is Caretta Beach, which is renowned for its Loggerhead Turtle inhabitants! Amazing! We’re planning on going on the boat trip to the caves and ship wreck (see below) and just plain ecstatic about all the food really!

I am some what fascinated and, slightly obsessed by the life and loves of Gabrielle Chanel; known to most as COCO CHANEL.
Gabrielle Chanel the founder of French Fashion House, CHANEL, had the ability to capture what a woman really wanted to wear – to feel liberated and in luxury… at an expense of course.
Chanel was also very articulate; as can be seen from her many many enchanting and insightful quotations…
“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
“A fashion that does not reach the streets is not a fashion.”
“A woman has the age she deserves.”
“Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door.”
“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.”
“Fashion fades, only style remains the same.”
“Fashion has become a joke. The designers have forgotten that there are women inside the dresses. Most women dress for men and want to be admired. But they must also be able to move, to get into a car without bursting their seams! Clothes must have a natural shape.”
“Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.”
“Fashion is made to become unfashionable.”
“How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.”
“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”
“I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little – if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny. And it’s best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”
“I invented my life by taking for granted that everything I did not like would have an opposite, which I would like.”
“Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.”
“Innovation! One cannot be forever innovating. I want to create classics.”
“Since everything is in our heads, we had better not lose them.”
“The best color in the whole world, is the one that looks good, on you!”
“Where should one use perfume?” a young woman asked. “Wherever one wants to be kissed,” I said.”
All these quotations are so legendary and thoughful. Coco Chanel is a wonderful individual who lived a very fulfilled and supreme life… leaving other peoples lives supreme and very fulfilled… including my very own life. Thank You Madame Gabrielle.
