Fresh Perfume

A Fresh Perfume is Right for You 
Your body chemistry actually does well with most perfumes, but if you want a fragrance that will pop, go fresh. You smell delightful with more citrus, floral, fruity, green, and aromatic scents. Especially if they are more on the simple side. A few classic perfumes that match your body chemistry are CK One, D&G L’Imperatrice, and True Religion Hippie Chic. Don't be afraid to experiment with new scents - almost everything smells good on you. You could even easily mix up your own scent and make it work. 
 I recently saw a vlog about perfume closet of one of the celebrities in the Philippines. It was interesting as most of her fragrances have stories behind them. And I like that. It makes me realise that my purchase of fragrances is sort of shallow but in the grand scheme of things, perfume being a worldly object, not so in my opinion. I bought most of my perfumes because I like the smell and because they are created by my favourite celebrity (ahemm.. Jennifer Aniston). But certainly in the future, if I am in the market for perfume.. I will try to buy something meaningful. 

This test is indeed true for me. I like smell that are fresh. I alternate my fragrance these days between the Moringa spray by Body Shop and the Green Tea by Elizabeth Arden.

Saying Goodbye to Spring

You are an independent spirit who can't help but do things your own way. You just see the world differently. You have unique ideas when it comes to beauty - you find it in places that others forget to look. Winter is as fun for you as any other season. You find joy and excitement in your own way during this season. Unlike most people, you don't find gray skies and cold weather dispiriting. If anything, you enjoy the bracing chill. Spring is a time of exploration and growth for you. The changing of seasons makes everything new and interesting again. You enjoy seeing the world as temporary, always in flux and evolving. Spring reminds that nothing remains the same from day to day.
We are on the last leg of spring in Down Under. It has been rough ride, weather wise as we had rain that lasted a week or so. We also had hot days. We have seen shades of purple Jacaranda. The Carnival of Flowers in Toowoomba displayed varieties. My yellow Dancing Lady orchid are in abundance. Some people enjoy spring - the colour, the fragrance and generally, the atmosphere. For some though, it is a nightmare. Hayfever and other illness are triggered. If you find yourself in this predicament, prevent poison ivy rash with or head to your local chemist.

What is Ambivert?

You have a good deal of attitude, but it's just for fun. You love being a little fresh. You are funky and creative, but you're not too offbeat. Like frosting, people find you delightful and relatable. You are open to new experiences and don't like to judge without trying. You often defy expectations and labels. You can be a social butterfly, but you need your downtime to recharge. You are an introvert (or at least ambivert) at heart.

12th "Aniversery"

This year we celebrated our anniversary simply at home. Had quite and nice dinner and a few drinks for Mcj. 

The highlight of the day is the last minute card that the Tatapilla made for us. It made the day much sweeter.

Windy Day in Brissy

Today, the weather will make somebody with Asthma or hay fever sniffling all day, I reckon. With of up to 30 km/h wind on a spring day, pollen are aplenty. There is a 24 hour fire ban due to dry weather. Our office building is on one of the highest area, walking on the corridor will get you blown away. My desk is next to the window/wall and I can hear the wind howling. At least, it's not winter anymore.

Clutter-free... Almost

I have reclaimed my office at home since the Tatapilla has moved his stuff to his own room. This freed-up a lot of space in our common area as I have moved some of the stuff to the office, some to the bedroom and some I have chucked or given away. Plus, the racing track that the Tatapilla has, has been packed up as it was more of a nuisance than an entertainment.

 You would think that I will use the space for say a p90 pickup or something useful? No, the space now has the ironing board, Christmas decorations and luggage. I know, I know. Soon, I’ll find the time and motivation to put these things where they’re supposed to. In the meantime, nothing much is in my way. Less clutter, clutter-free mind. Almost.

Playing Chess

With the recent changes in our household, we have been playing chess at the house.  Well, it's really a term from my MIL where we re-arrange furniture and fixture around the house.  

One of our rooms have been freed recently when my father-in-law moved to a home when his health has really declined.  We have no guest room so yes, the sensible thing would be to turn it into one.  But I am not really sensible.  Lol.  I didn't get rid of the bed so we still have a guest bed but I moved the Tatapilla there and turned his old bedroom to my office and craft room.  Oh and to store some of my shoes too.  Nothing major like novation launchpad s

The moving and re-arranging has been going on for more than a month now and it's still going.  Too much of things to move and sort, what can I tell you.  But I have the coming holidays to get it all finished, fingers crossed.
