    Good morning all !. Happy Birthday Diamondflame


    kewart extremely envious of your visit to Chester. It is years since we visited but I still remember being in awe of the architecture and loving the historic feel of the city.

    Diamondflame, happy birthday!!! Have a great year!


    I started my morning with some Pink Grapefruit by Body Shop layered on L'Erbolario's Rabarbaro. Later, after breakfast, shower and maybe some cleaning - I'm also my own cleaning person and not always one to be trusted - I'll change into something else. I seem to want both fresh citrus and something sweet at once today, we'll see what my nose wants me to do later in the day.

    Wishing Diamondflame a great birthday.

    My SOTD is Vahina by Sylvaine Delacourte.
    Rather an odd name (particularly in Spanish slang!)
    and a very uber-feminine scent of orange, osmanthus
    and vanilla. Soft and creamy and very sweet.
    A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.

    Morning all, & Happy Birthday, Diamondflame! Still as handsome as ever.

    lt's still pouring with rain here, & sadly the MIL isn't feeling too good today. We had planned a drive out into the countryside for a pub lunch, but she's gone back to bed to hopefully sleep it off. lf she's feeling better later & it brightens up, we might still go.

    l'm wearing Champagne de Bois, & there's probably just one wear left of this decant.

    So I finally decided on my SOTD and it's Lolita Lempicka. Sprayed a bit more than I usually do just to get the feel how much is too much. It doesn't feel like too much - but we'll see.

    Hello and best to everyone. Happy birthday, Diamondflame!

    Teardrop I hope your MIL feels better soon. Lots of nasty bugs circulating around here. I just started a course of antibiotics for bronchitis myself this morning.

    SOTD is Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Ambre Precieux Ultime. Wish you all a good day.

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Mugler Cuir Impertinent again today. It helps put me in an autumn mood despite the ongoing heat. Sadly, the transitional autumn season only lasts about six weeks around here.

    My new diet is working. I have to lose some pounds gained from eating pastries twice a day in Quebec. They were worth every bite!

    Have a good day.

    Good Morning everyone!

    As soon as I said that I have more space in my life to post, things got really crazy at work. I have been given a special project to work on with the deadline fast approaching and it's keeping me properly entertained. But it will pass...

    Trilby Lark - Congratulations on your weight loss!!! Several sizes, wow! It must have been difficult for you too, managing clothes for transition sizes. It just gets so expensive...Please keep me updated on your experiment and I will look into the Project 333 .

    However, like Robin-in-Fl I need various work outfits as I have 8 to 5 office job downtown. I am also a sucker for pretty dresses..

    Foxbins - I just donated my clothes to Dress for Success last week. I never heard of them before and incidentally found out about them just few days before the event where I could donate to them. Definitely made my heart feel better, than just donating to the Goodwill.

    PerfumedLady - Thank you for the kind words! I have not felt like a beauty for a very long time. My previous jobs put a lot of weight on me, both literally and figuratively. In my current job, it is actually easier to stay healthy with walking, stairs, and yoga during lunch hour .

    Mr teardrop & l popped out for a quick lunch so that his mum could have a rest, & she's still napping on the sofa right now. lt's a shame because the weather brightened up nicely this afternoon, & she's going home tomorrow, all being well. Guess we'll have to save that trip until next time...

    Happy Birthday, Diamondflame!

    The housecleaning gods sent a sign last night that I need another cleaner ASAP--I held up yesterday's trousers, worn while cleaning, to find a bleached line where I had apparently rested against a countertop with cleaning stuff on it. Sigh. Oh well, I can always wear them to the animal shelter. Today's scent is Civet layered with Patchouli Absolu.

    Hello all. And happy birthday Diamondflame!

    A dear older friend just lost her sister to congestive heart and multi-organ failure. Her last surviving sibling and they were very close. I'm hoping she'll come for an extended visit with me in Tennessee after the funeral. The coming weeks and months will be very hard and I don't want her to be alone. (She's a widow). I think the farm and horses and dogs and the natural beauty of the area would be very therapeutic. Positive wishes/thoughts/prayers appreciated.

    I'm in Fragonard Patchouli today.
