Hey there APJ Crew,
Some weeks remind me how good it is to be alive. How wonderful my friends, work, husband and life in general are. This week is a prime example. Worked Monday & Tuesday, hung out with mates, jetted off to a tropical island resort with Jin & the BFFs and came home to Sunday work. Spectacular week. Even got to wear some excellent frags.
Scent Diary: 15.10 – 21.10.2018
Spritzed YSL Opium Fleur de Shanghai on waking this morning.
What a day. Took the dogs out to their trainer for the week. Missing them already.
Met Anna Maria for a cuppa tea on the way back.
Lunched with BFF Kath at Macquarie Centre.
FINALLY found and bought a 75ml CHANEL No 18. Also grabbed the Deauville shower Gel. It was also first day of the Red Bottles released for Xmas 2018. I thought there was going to be a 15ml Extrait. NOPE! 900ml extrait only for AUD$40,000. The regular bottles look nice but I really have no need of them. BUMMED!
Got home and cleaned the house.
Started my TRIVIA Q&A.
Met Jin and the gym for leg and abs day. BLOODY HELL! I can hardly walk. Jelly legs.
Dinner at home on the table griller. Steak, onions, sweet potato, mushrooms and asparagus. DELICIOUS!
SOTNight: Pour Un Homme de Caron.
Lavender lollies. It’s been a lovely calming fragrance to write Q&A to. Very pretty and understated but still caught my attention a few times through the night.
Jin has hit the hay. I’ve caught up on the blog. TRIVIA Q&A. DONE by 12.30pm. YAY!
This going to bed at 12.30pm is knocking my body around. I wake up groggy and disoriented. Like coming back from the dead. It’s quite disturbing.
Cleaned up the bathroom, kitchen and dining room. I don’t know how we make so much mess. Sometimes it goes days without a clean and looks fab, others it doesn’t last 6 hours.
Spritzed Lotree from the Loant Collection. Woodsiness in 21st century niche style.
Scotty came and we did some desultory office work. we did head to the Post Office, pay some bills and cancel a credit card. Mainly chatter and perfume though today. It was really fun.
You know, I hadn’t work Clinique Aromatics In White since the first couple of weeks it arrived. I was spritzing it today and Scott took a photo of my face. He couldn’t stop laughing at my reaction.
Might have had two new arrivals in the mail. SHHHH! Sherwin by Huitieme Art and Foudre by Crosier Collection. Both Pierre Guillaume babies.
Also in the mail a postcard from my buddy Celia! Princess Mary!
Had a lovely long bath.
SOTWork: Methaldone by Aether Parfums. So fabulously weird yet wearable.
Work was fun. Regular crew, they had me laughing.
High heels after my first leg day back at the gym was horrific. Walking like a ruptured spinster. Stairs were a KILLER!
Packing to go on holidays tomorrow. Clothes were easy but perfume proving trickier.
My bag is EXACTLY 7kgs. Carry on only. Atelier Cologne Cafe Tuberose and Oriza L. Legrand Extra Virile Cologne. We are heading to the sunshine so I thought two choices enough. Both travel sized 10ml I think.
When you get sent a picture taken over 30 years ago. Yep, me in front with the suck dolly face.
Woo Hoo! Packed and ready to go. On board our flight and it starts. Freaking screaming children EVERYWHERE! Jin is NOT HAPPY! I’m not thrilled either.
The view from our apartment balcony. Thinbk we can handle this for three nights.
Dinner is a group activity. Alice did the most fabulous chicken tacos. O M G! We gorged. laughed, chattered and then I tried to teach the crew Canasta. First night jitters, We’ll try again tomorrow.
Up and breakfasted. Jin went SCUBA diving, Alice went snorkelling and Kath & I played Trivia. We came fourth of 8. Second guessed ourselves out of the running.
We grabbed the guys. Isn’t Jin the freaking cutest?
These are my peeps. My heart is full.
Sunset from the balcony where Jin cooked the most delicious BarBQ.
Spent the morning swimming in the pool, hanging, breakfasting and wandering the shops.
Headed up to One Tree Hill for some beverages with the crew.
Kath and I decided to go for a walk. Only about 25 minutes each way through the scrub and over some small hills to a deserted beach. I would love to bring a picnic here next time and have some swims.
We wandered back to the buggy as the sun started setting. It was cool and beautiful.
Tonight we had Thai Green Curry with chicken and veg. Alice did the cooking. Then we all played Canasta till our eyes were drooping. BED!
Up early. Jin made breakfast omelettes and toast.
Packed, cleaned the house and dropped the girls down to their half day cruise around the islands. One last look out of our apartment balcony.
We took the keys back to the holiday home crew and the buggy back. They so kindly gave us a buggy to collect the girls and bring them back to the airport! YAY!
Jin and I scarpered up to the One Tree Hill Cafe and while I spent some time blogging Jin watched TV on his phone. Here is the view. Bloody lovely.
Lazed around the house.
Bathed and wore Mitzah by DIOR due to all the amber chatter about it.
Collected the dogs after work. They stink and need a wash.
