Hey there Posse! Layering Roses. This evening Jin put up a new Fanaway fan in a spare bedroom. I often use this room when our schedules don’t work. Jin works 12 hour shifts (that move constantly) in a dangerous job so every moment of sleep he can get is important. Taking care of electricity and fittings needs all his focus, not sleep deprivation. Since we moved into the apartment I’ve been using the lower single bunk, which has been decidedly less than perfect. So, this year for my birthday the crew pitched in to buy me a new, fabulous queen size bed base & mattress with large storage drawers beneath. We had this fan light in the garage but it was too dangerous when we had bunk beds. NOW it’s perfect, I’ll be cool as a cucumber through summer.
Hopefully next week we can get all the art up. Then I’ll take you a proper photo of the whole room. Once I’m working again I’d like to put a wardrobe, drawers and desk unit around the rooms window.
Layering Roses: Everything’s Coming Up Roses
With all the excitement of a fabulous bed awaiting, off I went for an hour long soak in the bath. Yes, bubbles provided by LUSH Rose Jam. It’s a thick, rich, jammy red rose. The bubbles and fragrance last fabulously.
We are talking about layering roses right? My next point of call was my dwindling supply of Aftelier Rose Face Elixir. Truth be told I’m not much of a face potion person but this Rose Face Elixir just melts into my skin, leaving it fresh, dewy and luminous for days. It also smells bloody divine! ALL the roses
Lastly in my evening of layering roses I went spritz crazy with Amouage Lyric Man. My bottle is the early, non magnetic cap and over 50% empty. Maibly because it has really poor longevity for me so i respritz every hour. Tonight I was hoping with all this rose base I might get some more life. It did work. Nearly 5 hours passed before I became fully nose blind.
So just before bedtime at around 3am i decided to go in another direction entirely. A few blasts of CK One Shock for women and the world smelled just right. The blackcurrant gave the lingering roses and amber a lovely jammy zing and I had to check and see if roses were a forgotten note. Then everything tumbled into a choc nougat pile that smells freaking awesome.
How do you like the new Fanaway Ceiling Fan? So cool, eh? The last pic is it in situ. You can just see one of its clear plastic fins slicing through the air. It needs a bloody good clean up tomorrow. Been in the garage for four years in plastic.
See you next week.
