chichibeauty is me

It’s been so long since I’ve hit the blog, that I think I’ve forgotten how to write. But just like riding a bike, here I go, rolling down hill at full speed, not knowing where the breaks are.

My husband, and number one fan, gave me what I suspect must be the holy grail of girly gifts. I hate surprises. Well, that’s not true. I love surprises, just hate waiting for them when I know a surprise is coming. And Mr. Rumblepup sure knows how to keep me in suspense.

How did I find out I was getting a surprise girly gift? Well, when rumblepup is sleeping, in his cute, teddy bear like way, I like messing with he head.

I start asking him questions like “Do you love me?” and of course he answers “Yes”. Or I’ll ask him “Am I sexy?” and of course he answers “Yes baby. Your sexy. hubba hubba.” Whatever. It really is the cutest thing. Oooh we chics are evil.

But one night, while he’s purring away, I ask my typical mess with his head question.

“How much do you love me?”, giggling to myself, wondering what’s going to be his answer from his blissfully sleep state. He says “I love you so much, I’ve got a gift for you……snooooore” and then he completely passes out.

DAMN!!! He’s got a gift for me? I mean, hubby rumblepup always has gifts for me, but I’m a girly girl princes, goddamit! I want to know what my gift is!

So the next morning, I planned on being real subtle about it and giving him the ol one, two chicki poo, and get him to give up the ghost, but I can’t resist and go full on baby girl on her birthday on him. Sorry my fellow professional ladies, but I couldn’t resist.

“What are you getting me? What are you getting me? What are you getting me? What are you getting me? ” I squeal with delight. (Yes, I’m ashamed that I gave him the whole show, but FTS!)

“Whositwhatsisnow?” He says while he does a classic Scooby barroo.

“You said you where getting me a gift?” I say with the girly girl eyes.

“Uhm, uh, did I say that?” he replies.

“Yes, yes, yes, yes!” I tell him, thoroughly disgusted at his complete lack of understanding about girls and gifts.

“What is it?” I ask again, this time stomping my foot and biting my lower lip, giving him the “You can’t resist this shiznit” look.

But I married Mr. rumblepup for his brains and character, as well as his looks. And that’s where my plan backfired. He can actually think when he’s hot as a steam pipe, and doesn’t want to give his little surprise away.

“Millions of girls want it, but very few get it” is all he would say, giving me a hint that amounted to a pile of toilet paper.


Ah, but the day came when he came home with a cute little white package. I opened the box to see the world famous logo and a beautiful No5 on the label. Suffice to say, Mr. rumblepup got some kudos, and other stuff. 😉

Chanel has been a staple of incredible fashion and design. Literally, Coco Chanel invented 20th century womens fashion, and carried that innovation over into everything else she does.

But there is one innovation where she stood out. She created a fragrance that has to be the most alluring and luxurious the world has seen. Just the name Chanel No5 evokes a sense of drama and history. It made me blush when I first saw that little white bottle.

So, being the shrewed shopper that I am, I went out and looked me up some Chanel Products.

In no uncertain terms, one of my favorite online stores,, has the best Chanel Fragrance prices around. And, being very up to date on product offering, the have a full line of Chanel Perfumes , Chanel Colognes , and has just introduced a line of Chanel Body Care , Chanel Body Wash, and Chanel Moisturizers to complement the line.

For Chanel Dresses, some of the best places for pricing would be Saks, Macy’s, & Neiman Marcus.
