Hello Fellow Fumies,
At APJ we have a Saturday Question. Everyone gets to chime in with an answer, chat with other responders and it’s a fun event each week. Taking sides never means taking offence and everyone keeps it respectful and light, even though we can sometimes trawl the depths.
The idea is you’ll see it on the weekend or chime in through the week. Hopefully you will come back regularly and see if anyone has responded to your comment and you can reply to them. The aim is to generate real conversation and connection even though we are scattered around the globe.
Over 100 responses I will draw a Scent Sample Pack (from my collection)

Saturday Question: What Are Your 2018/9 Resolutions?
I know we were going to talk thunking but I’ve had an idea for 2019 that will be a slight change but not such an enormous one.
Resolutions! Do we make them? Keep them? Are they binding? Are you someone who just can’t even? Maybe you make them on Dec 31 and have them all broken by Jan 2, earlier if you’re a high achiever?
As you know the last part of 2018 has been about combating diabetes. I’ve been eating better, exercising, cutting most of the added sugar out of my diet and generally trying to get my health in order. Obviously I’m not perfect at it but nearly 10kgs (22lbs) has fallen off since September. I’m trying to do it kindly to myself, allowing treats but not being ridiculous. I resolve to continue that battle.
There will be a sale of fragrances that aren’t getting spritzed. Last year I offloaded a bunch and it felt good to get them out into the world, where hopefully they are living new lives and being drained to the dregs. I resolve to move at least 50 full bottles.
Turbo Trivia needs me to get out and do some upselling over the next 12 months. Ideally we should be running 20-25 events a week. That would give 8-10 Drag Queens enough work to live off and everything else they earn could be cream. It’s really hard for me to go and do the meeting and greeting of prospective clients but I resolve to get my finger out and see 5 new clubs, pubs or venues a month.
What would I like you guys to resolve to do? Tell a couple of friends about Australian Perfume Junkies and get them on board. Before the crash earlier in the year we had about 1300 followers over all platforms, now we are at less than a quarter of that. I resolve to start getting my butt into gear and promoting us a bit more too. As always, the more the merrier.
