Hey there APJ Crew,
Another jam packed week. Except NO JAM because that’s off my list of eatable foods. This week was fun. Loads of fragrance, friends, food and fun. I have a lovely life and I’m grateful for it.
Scent Diary: 5.11 – 12.11 2018
Up and at the Sydney Olympic Aquatic Centre to do a shallow and a deep aquarobics. Funny thing about having been a dancer. We are used to 2 hour classes, that’s how our lives were formatted. So one aqua class feels like half the job. I do a few laps in between.
After the pool on Monday is my official Weigh In Time. Very happy, dropped another 1.1kgs last week!
Jin and I went to the Sexual Health Clinic to get our check ups done.
SOTDay: Pour Un Homme Caron. I really am a teensy bit obsessed with the way it smells. Lavender candy. MMMMMMM
Home and got quite a lot of TRIVIA Q&A done.
Cleaned the house, 4 loads of washing. Now that I’m getting a bit fitter and my body has remembered how to sweat and the temperature is a bit warm cleaning is a very sweaty affair. Bloody hell, had to wring my T-Shirt out.
Around 8pm I got out the bottle of CHANEL Boy and gave myself a few big fat squirts to keep the lavender theme going but to change it up a bit.
Back to the TRIVIA Q&A.
Up at sparrows fart to have my three Ss. It’s Melbourne Cup day here in Australia and I have to be at work by 11.45am. Bit early for me.
Equistrius by Parfum d’Empire. It’s my only horsy type frag name but i would have chosen it for today anyway.
Came home, got naked and lay under the fan till I had to get ready for work again. BLISS
Parramatta RSL Trivia, in the same make up, just touched up.
Geranium Pour Monsieur by Frederic Malle. I needed something crisp, fresh and zingy to get me ready for Trivia tonight. A double booking makes it harder to keep my energy levels up.
After work I snuck into the bedroom to my sleepy husband and gave him a surprise. “Old age creeping up on him” as it were.
Started watching Bodyguard, a new UK TV show.
Fell asleep on the couch last night and woke up feeling woozy.
The dogs loved their walk in the cool but muggy morning air.
Lolita Lempicka EdP for me today. I would be really sad if they ever DC it.
BUGGER! Bodyguard only has a few eps. Finished it already. It was good though. I hope it becomes a real series.
Afternoon spritzes of Liberté by Cacharel. Sizzling citrus fairy floss.
Had a bath this evening then spritzed a lavish amount of Donna Karan CHAOS! I’d forgotten how freaking lovely this is.
Jin and I trotted off to the gym after work. 10pm gym buddies. I’m a bit sore now.
Today is gorgeous. Sunshine is out but not ridiculously hot. People wee all smiling and chatty on the dog walk. Great way to start the day.
Jin and I trotted off to the gym for a back, biceps and abs workout.
SOTDay: Niki de Saint Phalle
Gym. No parking. BUGGER! Jin and I then went to the pet store. Bought the food and treats and got some aquatic plants for the fish tank.
In stead of the gym we did 200 sit ups and leg stretches.
Wearing more Niki de Saint Phalle.
Town with Vicki to Pawn shop. Lunch with her husband Laurie in Chinatown. The spiciest chilli Kung Pow Chicken I ever had. SIZZLING!
I might have tried on this AUD$7k gel opal and diamond ring in white gold. Isn’t it fabulous? This is exactly how amazing it looked, no filter, no enhancement.
Coffee at Birkenhead Shopping Centre. Bought Jin’s 7 year Anniversary present (we aren’t celebrating the marriage but we do celebrate the day we met).
Scent change to Jacomo Silences
Meet Tina at Auburn Mega Mall to couch shop.
May not have gone to the gym but I did do a fair amount of steps.
Watching Arrow Season 7. SO GOOD! Only FOUR eps so far. GRRRR!
SOTBed: Nuda by Nasomatto. Gasoline jasmine.
SOTDay: Let It Rock by Vivienne Westwood. It’s a sweetish amber, pretty, wearable and comfy. I like it and would wear it a LOT if I had bought the big bottle. The bottle and lid are FABULOUS though.
Hung around the house with Jin. Did a load of washing. Low key day.
Saw this though. Made me laugh.
Watched Snow White and the Huntsman sprawled all over the couch with the dogs. Charlize Theron is amazing.
A few hefty swipes of vintage CHANEL Coco extrait to go to the chemist and the grocery. Damnit! Why should I smell anything but fabulous even when doing the most mundane things.
Came home. Cooked myself Sausages, Asparagus and Beans in Onion Gravy. SO YUMMY! I guess sausages aren’t TOTALLY diet but they were bloody delicious and I only had two.
Watched some TV, nothing great.
SPTBed: Niral by Neela Vermeire Creations from a decant. So pretty. The opening is very rosy to me.
WOW! It’s a very warm morning. Warm and muggy.
SOTDay: Violetta di Murano (Italian Journey No. 4) DSH Perfumes. Cool bite of blackcurrant, ivy and violet open to a mimosa heart backed by the warmth of resin and woods.
TinaG came over for lunch and a sniff.
Then we trotted down to City Perfume’s store in Merrylands. Had a ball. We smelled SO MUCH PERFUME. We helped customers, made some videos, tried everything and generally had a fabulous time. I now smell like a perfume store.
Tonight we met up with Phil, Alice & BFF Kath for Chinese Dinner at my favourite restaurant, Liu Rose. We were so gutsy that 2 full ducks were consumed. We also had a couple of other dishes but they were merely flourishes compared to the Peking Duck, Sang Choi Bow and Duck Noodles. Perfect night out. A DIET BE DAMNED night.
Home. Having a bath. MMMMMM
Up early and gave the dogs a very short walk.
Hurried down to the pools to do Aquarobics but the class was full. GRR! Jin and I used the gym there and did legs and abs. We worked up quite a sweat in the warm air. It was nice. The pools were so full by the time we finished it was going to be impossible to do laps. We were beat and headed home.
Grabbed Jin’s bestie Matt on the way home and they watched TV while I slept and got ready for work.
SOTDay: 24.9.11 by Hilde Soliani. A light amber, cooled by incense and spicy greened with calamus (imagine papyrus crossed with cinnamon)
Matt and Jin came to work tonight because it is Jin & my 7 year anniversary. The Austral BC crew was so happy to see them and I loved it.
