Taking L’Occitane to the Occitan


Cherry pickingHi there,

Hope you are well! Sometimes it feels too long between our time together on this blog so do remember you can always follow me on Twitter or Facebook for regular updates.

Just back from a few days in France, was over visiting friends and I took my mum this visit so it was great to spend some quality time with her, you know how much I love my mum (see Mother's Day blog).

We had a wonderful few days visiting beautiful little towns, relaxing at Sue's guest house otherwise known as Maison Bell and catching up with my circle of friends there over a barbecue and Blanquette (the locally produced bubbly!)

La Vie est Belle In France with mum

I also took my sample of the forthcoming L'Occitane TSV with me and took some pictures of it in the perfect setting. I was staying in the area of the Languedoc which is part of the larger L'Occitan area, which was originally where the Language of Occitan or 'Lenga D'Oc' was originally spoken. (Must make a disclaimer here, in the photo of the collection on the bridge there is a missing Spring Cherry shower gel, that was back in the shower!!)

Upcoming L'Occitane TSV L'Occitane set








It's a wonderful collectors set and I must say, as well as Verbena my other favourite is the Spring Cherry, it's a soft, sweet, powdery, fruity floral – delectable! You can see some photos of the trip as well as a video with us doing some cherry picking, they were delicious!

    Hi Mr Craig
    Another wonderful time for you – and Mum of course!! What fun picking cherries!! Don’t get to see you so much on QVC these days (probably because I am working or something when you are on!! But when I hear your voice I do have to sit for a mo and watch (despite what you might be showing!!)!! So sad about Belulah but what a fight she gave. I hope Amica is doing well also?? Miss her on the TV.
    Hope you are enjoying the sunshine Mr Craig.
    My three things:
    Favorite Product – Verbena shower gel – gorgeous!!
    Thought for the Week: Sunshine, sunshine, sunshine
    Highlight: That this is my last full week at work as managed to secure couple of days off next week!!! Yipeee
