Hey APJ Peeps

It is so damn hot here I can hardly think, let alone consider how my new bottle of Chanel N°18 smells.   I had a large decant of the N°18 EdT, and I have enjoyed wearing it off and on over the last four months or so.  And then the “enjoyed” turned into an absolute “I have to have a bottle of this stuff and I know it is not available any more so let’s get the EdP immediately I have heard such good things about it” mode.

Meanwhile, back at the APJ ranch ….

Hey there all you APJ friends,  welcome back to the pleasure dome.

Did you miss us?  I am sure I did a lot of things whilst we were gone, including enjoying not having a deadline to nearly miss every two weeks, but cannot remember what now.   All good things come to an end and I’m back at it, albeit with my very own deadline now.  Portia is running things a little differently,  and it involves me having to be computer literate and learning how to insert pictures into the post all by myself.  I took it for granted that Portia did everything for me, but that vacation is over.  If you find yourself not reading this until Christmas you’ll know I am having issues.  (By the way, http://www.australianperfumejunkiescom is the slightly altered address now, in case you have problems Googling us.)

The Girl with the Armadillo Tattoo

I got my first tattoo to fill in the “no APJ” boredom.  Have wanted one for ages and I finally got around to it.  No surprise for those who know me, that it is an armadillo.  It is the name and the logo of our bike and cookie business.  I chose to have it on my ankle as the middle of my forehead would have been a bit too in your face, no pun intended.  I would have liked it on my arm,  but thought that might be a little too mid-life crisis.  And I love the way it peaks out of my shoe.  I cannot wait to have another one, which I have planned for the end of the summer.  A crown.  I am the Cookie Queen.
