Hey there APJ Crew,

The kids are still with us. It’s kind of nice having them around the house. They basically take care of themselves at 16 & 20.

Hey there APJ,

It’s Mood Scent 4 week. Today the theme seems picked perfectly for my tastes. It’s always good for me to have a few Diva scents around as I spend so much time being one. So it was fun to think of a few of my lovelies that I wear especially for those show stopping moments when I want to smell as outrageously fabulous as I look.

So excited to be blogging with these three superstars again:  Esperanza L’Esperessence, Megan Megan In Sainte Maxime and Samantha I Scent You A Day. Check theirs out too.

WOO HOO! My mate Arielle is doing another fragrance!
Washington, D.C. (April 2019) – Arielle Shoshana is launching a Kickstarter campaign, “The Scent of Sunday,” to create its second fragrance, Arielle Shoshana Sunday.

“The Scent of Sunday” Kickstarter campaign will run from April 11, 2019 – May 11, 2019. Arielle Shoshana Sunday is expected to launch in October 2019.
