SOTD: Chanel N.22

So it has been awhile since I did a theme with my images but I have chosen one, for the rest of October the images chosen will have the theme of October. I really haven't shown my favorite month much love or appreciation; it is going by too fast and it must be savored. For this unseasonably warm October day I am going with Chanel N.22; this was a springtime favorite but did not weather well in Summer it seems to be a scent for those seasons that are caught between weather extremes. This idea makes sense between with the constrast of beautiful pillowy sparklingy white flowers and dry vanillic incense.
And I just wanted to share a few things that have really caught my attention the last few weeks:

And too really make you feel better:

I KNOW! It has got to be one of the sweetest things I have seen in ages. I showed to my co-workers and they basically had the exact same reaction. I just love the intensely motherly look on the monkey's face and how happy the little tiger is. Okay this image is so cute I turn into a sputtering idiot.
