Portia Turns 49

Hey Crew,

Yes, it’s BIRTHDAY time around here and I’m entering into my last year in my 40s. This year is anti production so a few of the crew will be coming around for my 100% favourite Take Away Chinese. Yeah, I’m so foul, I know. It’s the best for ever and I have just realised in the last few years how often I choose it, how enjoyable it almost always is and it’s made with super fresh ingredients. Not quite as good as home made, and a lot more deep friend that I’d usually do, but compared to other fast foods it seems so much better to me.

Portia Turns 49

Though you can’t be with us for dinner I did steal a cake picture so you could feel part of the festivities.

I know you’re dying to know what my birthday scent is.

Ma Folie de Noel by DSH Perfumes. I had a bubble bath in the same (THIS WAS A LIE!! I had a Shalimar bubble bath because I FORGOT that I was going to wear Ma Folie. I still smelled fabulous in Ma Folie so no real harm done), talk about spoiling myself silly. Dawn has a terrific selection of accessory products to go with a bunch of her fragrances. LOVE THEM!DSH Perfumes

You can try it from $6 at DSH Perfumes. It’s unbelievably gorgeous, mine was first gifted to me by Natalie of Another Perfume Blog. Huge thanks to her.

Thank You all for being such a huge part of APJ.

  1. Hope you have the happiest of birthdays! and no worries about the big 5-0 next year! I can tell you from my own experience I am truly enjoying my 50s and am still hanging in there on the physical level as you can see from my pix and am feeling the most at ease on a psychological level…with age comes wisdom..which is a good thing….and with your attitude I know you will age gracefully and with much joy…

    all the best xxoo

    PS
    I hear the 50s are the new 40s so you are younger than you think 😉

    • Hey Lindaloo,
      It was a happy birthday.
      Turning 50 is a privilege, no worries here. I’m going to live my last 40s year with gusto and continue in the same vein indefinitely.
