Champagne - My journey / 26.01.2021

Every morning, I enjoy a reviving long black espresso coffee, in MY mug. This is the mug that always makes coffee taste better, whoever is doing the ‘making.’ I also have a favourite cup for tea, and the water glass beside my bed is washed and replaced every day. For champagne I have a Champagne YSC glass, read on to find out why.

Yes, of course – every yummy mouthful shared with family or friends, was a gift!  So New Year is upon us now, and for many people this is a time...

HAPPY VALENTINES Considering the founder of this festive romantic love day was executed (poor Saint Valentines) it’s amazing how many celebrate a day they have no clue about. Happy Valentines has been around since I was born but I remember when I first visited Denmark during the early 90s they never heard of Valentine’s Day. There was no merchandise in the stores, home, or on the street. So how did all the young lovers express love? Today we all have a special earmarked for sharing love and many can’t wait...
