Hey there APJ Crew,
Scent Diary: 29.1 – DD.MM.2018
O M G! Today was big. Not energetic but big.
Dropped Jin and Tara to the ferry wharf this morning. They went to the Sydney Opera House for a tour. Then they headed off to Manly to lunch with the beautiful Eve and Lola.
I set to and got most of my two weeks of Trivia Q&A done while they were gone.
Made a large pot of beef and vegetable soup which was goulash inspired, heavy on the paprika.
Picked them up from Parramatta Railway and we came home. LOADS of great stories.
Jin and I are bickering. It’s about the wedding and driving me a bit nutso. Obviously it’s doing the same for him because we are both getting on each others nerves. We also don’t seem to be able to let things go and the bickering becomes snark and little spats. Poor Tara just lets it float over her.
After dinner I came back and finished the Trivia Q&A.
I ran myself a bath to celebrate and now it’s 2am and I’m off to bed.
SOTBed: Keiko Mecheri Un Jour d’Ete. Creamy, sweet ylang, jasmine, coconut and some buttery cream underneath that could be vanilla and sandalwood.
The dogs are going out to the trainers to stay while the Wedding Madness is going on. I’m so sad to have them go but it’s better for everyone if they can be cared for out there. They get so excited to go and Charlie loves to have them.
Doused myself in Goldfield & Banks Wood Infusion.
Office day. Scott arrived bearing coffees and his sunny smile. He and Tara were so excited to see each other. Much catching up since Paris.
Bank, Post Office, Jin car fixed, bought blazers, organised booze for wedding, final guest list follow ups and sorting.
Jin took Tara for lunch while we got our stuff done.
Aromatics Elixir Bath. Vintage Hermès Caleche EdT tonight at Trivia where Tara sat with the I Concur crew.
Came home and packed for the trip. Did some blogging and now I’m going to watch some Netflix before I sleep.
SOTBed: Liberté by Cacharel
6am and it’s MITZAH time.
Tara and I are readying ourselves for our flight to Uluru. It fricken FREEZING this morning and I have multiple layers on. Drinking a quick coffee while Tara gets her good face on. BRRRRR
Here Tara and Tina are looking glam as at Sydney Airport.
Dinner and sunset at Uluru. We had a star talk, met our perfume buddy Brenda, saw Venus and Mars rise and had a ball.
More Goldfield & Banks Wood Infusion
Sunrise at Uluru is the most awe inspiring adventure. Beauty that left us speechless.
Today I’m wearing Fort & Manlé’s Charlatan. Its warmth fits the cool of the outback morning and smells wonderful right through the days adventure.
Sun hitting Kata Tjuta (The Olgas).
Trekking through Kata Tjuta. It was tough but worth it.
Afternoon spent at Uluru hearing the stories of the magical Aboriginal mythology
Sunset at the rock. The colour changes are unbelievable.
Dinner at the glam restaurant in Uluru. So nice. More of Fort & Manlé’s Charlatan.
The girls looking uber glam on our last morning in Uluru
All very sad to be leaving. I have over spritzed Atelier Cologne Cafe Tuberosa. It’s outrageous.
Clouds from the plane. No filter.
Arriving at Aunty Tracey’s house. YAY!
Full day on the Great Barrier Reef with Tara. Snorkelling, glass bottom boat, lunch, underwater room and so much more. We saw turtles, fish, shark, manta ray ands some of the most beautiful coral. Amazing.
Dinner with the newlyweds Andrew & Travis at the Pearl Garden Chinese Restaurant. Aunty Tracey and Tara fell madly in love with them both. Such gorgeous boys. So in love and living amazing conjoined lives.
Wearing Goldfield & Banks Wood Infusion again and loving it.
Came home and had to get the Scent Diary up to date. It’s short and sweet because I’ve been busy LIVING
Wearing Charlatan again this morning. Tara commented how deliciously skanky I smelled. RESULT!!
Breakfast began the day with bacon sandwiches. Meeting Aunty Tracey’s bestie Maxine and hanging with Sasha’s family (Aunty Tracey’s daughter).
We drove from Cairns to Airlie Beach in a 9 hour drive with two stops included for brunch and afternoon tea.
Dinner was a spectacular event with one of my school friends, David, who has his birthday tomorrow.
He now owns Airlie Beach BREEZE BAR. We got a sneak preview of its new look. VERY swish.
