    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Good morning all !. Shycat, glad to hear you are on the up

    khanada, those seasonal allergies can be so tortuous. We have a neighbour who has problems with tree pollen too so she suffers in spring and summer. I have been really fortunate with hay fever as I found a nasal spray that eliminates it 100% without any side effects otherwise I would be going round the bend too. The air quality here was noticeably improved during the lockdown but is deteriorating big time now.

    Happy belated BN-versary, ExtremeK!

    ineespenes, I'm glad you're feeling better today. It's sad that you suffer from insomnia so often.

    Khanada and Jon, I also do have seasonal allergies. Mine usually worsens on August, but it started early this year. Welp, at least it makes cleaning the kitty box and taking the trash out less awful. If it persists, I might be able to finally clean the fridge, too.

    I'm wearing my Guilty Absolute to give me some confidence during my upcoming presentation. I'm sleepy because I was preparing it until 3 AM and had to get up before 7. Nobody's fault but mine!

    Your photo looks so inviting Jon! Bulgari au Thé Bleu for another 40C day. Going out to visit a lavender farm today so I thought it was appropriate.

    Hello and good morning, or afternoon, for all:

    Today’s allergies are better. Both the BF and I are awake, at least. We need to do some housework, and run some errands, so I’m glad we’re both breathing comfortably. Thanks to Jon for the well wishes. I think they must be working. Also sending ClockworkAlice some confidence vibes. Girl, you got this.

    I’m drinking iced coffee to clear the cobwebs, but I feel like such a slacker, because I’m also lazing in our daybed, watching Futurama. I need to do something that actually feels like work. Wearing my new Cartier Baiser Volé in an effort to inject some briskness.

    First time from a sample:

    Coup de Foudre Eau de Parfum by Bortnikoff



    I already had a decant of the original Coup de Foudre (the Extrait) so this Eau de Parfum I've been interested to test. I love it. It's intensely spicy, as I expected, but there's a bit more room to take in all of the florals, citrus, woods and oud. I look forward to giving this more skin time as Summer progresses.

    Hello all. Belated BN birthday wishes to ExtremeK.

    I'm in Lost Cherry today. It came, it smelled great, it went. Pretty quickly. Might need to let it go.

    It's moving day. My stuff arrives from SF and I'm happy, excited and anxious. Where will it all fit? Since most of it is art, and wall space is at a premium, and I'm not willing to compromise too much on what MUST get hung, my home is going to have to look like some type of overstuffed art-salon. Which is fine.

    Have a good one all!
