    Last night I watched BBC Parliament in a cloud of Shem el Nessim. Think I have a crush on the speaker of the house Bercow even if he is Roger Fedeeers greatest fan.

    kewart, oh. This is sad, but calling it "celebration of life" makes you think about it from a new, brighter perspective.

    Today I couldn't decide what do I want (I felt I wanted something fresh, uplifting and citrusy/fizzy, but I wanted something to last through the day, too), so I tried layering scents for the first time ever and I'm very happy with the result. I layered some Pink Grapefruit by The Body Shop (very fizzy, grapefruity and cheerful, lasts around 3 hours on me) on top of Frescaessenza by L'Erbolario (woody, grassy, clean and very very dry, also known to last all day on my skin). The result was just what I wanted, I think I'll repeat this combo on days like this.

    It's been a week-and-a-half since I've been to Cross Fit (I've been going to the gym instead) so I needed something to kick me awake this morning and a tiny spray of this did just the trick:

    Hello and best to everyone. Ebenas- congratulations on your posting milestone!

    I’m calling out again today. This virus or whatever is knocking me out. Wearing soft, powdery Bourbon French Perfumes Anastasia. It’s equal parts vanilla and musk. Simple but pretty. Take care, all.

    Morning all,

    Sending get well wishes to tdem & anyone else who's poorly right now. Our house is currently reminding me of the episode "Sick" from eighties British TV show The Young Ones. And that's not a good thing.

    Probably going scent-free again today.

    ETA: congrats to Ebenas on your milestone!

    Another day of delayed catching up, just an SOTD post, for me....

    Caron Poivre. Don't get the image below at all, must've been a gift box - I far prefer my classic Caron bottle!

    Onda today - still hammering away at the dreaded document - was very heartened to find a friend of mine has just STARTED a phd (she's almost fifty) - I was convinced I was the oldest student left on the planet (51) - now feeling positively teenage.

    Mike, are you still doing crossfit or just going to the gym now?

    I started my jiu-jitsu training about a month ago now and I've gone from two classes a week to three. I feel so sore after my three days of training that I find it a bit difficult to go to the gym even for light cardio on my days off. I've heard some of the same things from people that have done crossfit. It takes so much out of you...
