Pretty Package

Pretty Package

Have you ever kept a product around simply because you loved the packaging so much?  Or maybe that’s just me…

White Diamonds by Elizabeth Taylor | Circa 1993

My mother bought this for me one Christmas. I’ve really never been a fan of the scent – a bit too old for me, I think.  But it looks so pretty sitting on my dresser I just can’t let it go.


 Melrose Mood | MAC Heatherette Collection | Circa 2008

This pink  is just a bit much for me so, sadly, it gets very little wear.  Yet, I can’t bring myself to throw it away.

Hello Kitty Calendar | Circa 2008-2009

After 2009 passed it pained me to throw away this gift from my co-worker.  The pictures of Hello Kitty in haute couture are so adorable!  So I tucked it away and one day found a little girl (daughter of a girlfriend) who loved Hello Kitty dearly, and was so excited to cut the pictures out and do fun, prissy things with them.  I am so glad my old calender has found a new home!

      And hence this post – so hard to throw it away, even though I rarely (if ever) use it. It’s gorgeous on my dresser (lol).

    Totally. I’ll keep it for years then finally work up the nerve to throw it out. I think I bought my mom White Diamonds one Mother’s Day early 90s and agree the smell is more, mature 😉

  5. I love the new website…very nice! White Diamonds is a classic! i love calvin klein’s euphoria…packaging is very pretty!

    White Diamonds was a staple in my mom’s perfume collection. It was the one fragrance that we knew to never mess with.
