Is there anything I connect with Vienna so is it this piece of music, Radetzky March, Op. 228 by Johann Strauss Sr, composed in 1848, 100 years before my birth – and of course I have to use it as my cloud of music today – when I going to give away the generous blogging friend I have in Vienna, Dia.
Have been in Vienna a couple of time the last few years – have very good friends living there – so the pillows are free – and I love the city. Music everywhere. Great food, shopping, stunning buildings, clean, filled with parks, Lipizzaner horses and high quality on everything, except their coffee. But even the sun has spots.
Vienna is famous for it’s cafe culture – and people in Vienna say that the cafe is extension to their living room. Cakes and patisserie are to die for – expect don’t queue up for a piece of the famous Sacher cake at “Café Sacher” – biggest and only tourist trap in Vienna, what I have notice. Only had one cup of good coffee in Vienna and it was at a bar by the market – rest has only been colored water. But that is the only bad thing I have to say about Vienna.
Will do a post about Vienna after my next visit – there is so many wonderful things to say about this city. Hopefully it will in the beginning of the summer.
Now to Dia@happyface313, we met only a a couple of months ago through another blogging sister, Heather@VINTAGE FRENCH CHIC – and we have really clicked. She is funny and totally mad at times. She brings me Louis Vuitton, Hermès, Chanel and Dior .. she brings me a small basic Italian restaurant Hamburg and oranges from Florida, plus she does it in both English and German. And we both like our Glossyboxes.
Her sister lives in Florida – and after my post about my beloved toothpaste, Colgate Optic White (sometimes happiness is) – she offered me buy some when she visit in her sister in beginning of December. So she also brings me toothpaste, sure if I wanted the toothpaste designed by LV – she would have found it too.
The thing is that Dia have a “150-days-anniversary-give-away” – a beautiful red Prada “flower” charm – that will make any handbag happy and any of us are able to win it. Deadline is on next Sunday, 13th of January. Just click on the link.
I had hope that in with the 3 parcels I collect today would be the one HF sent me from Hamburg, but no Dia box – but the German postal service isn’t the fastest in Europa, but they seems to have nice back parts. *laughing Because I wanted to include it in this post, but I don’t want to wait any longer because of the deadline for the Prada give away – so I post it now.

the streets of other cities with asphalt.”
