Hi there APJ.
Val the Cookie Queen is unwell but wanted me to wish you all Welcome to 2019.
From all of us here at Australian Perfume Junkies a wish.
May your year be peaceful and prosperous, bring you health, wealth and satisfaction. We hope your highs are stratospheric and your lows negligent but if the black dog comes to bite that you have coping mechanisms pre-prepared.
Spend the year making memories, meeting new people and taking small chances.
Eat the best food you can afford.
Keep only the friends who act like friends should.
Stand your ground but do it respectfully.
Try something new. Doesn’t have to be earth shaking. Sure, it could be parachuting from an aeroplane if that yanks your chain but I’m really talking little things. Try a new cultures cuisine, a new form of exercise, learn how to make coffee or mix cocktails, go sit in a cafe or park and read a book.
Catch public transport instead of driving. It’s nice to watch the world go by and you can also get some reading done, or catch up on the blogs.
Treat yourself the best you can. An old adage says, “Be nice to yourself. It’s hard to be happy with someone picking on you all the time.”
Thank you for being a part of Australian Perfume Junkies in 2018. We are so grateful that you choose to spend your time with us, so many of you comment and share your lives here. It’s amazing, and special, and a source of great joy to me and the whole APJ Crew. Let’s really enjoy our fragrances this year, you don’t need to buy new stuff to love scent but you must love to smell fabulous.
Hugs and squishes,
Val the Cookie Queen, Sandra, Kate Apted and Portia xxx
