. . . and hello to my new webhost as well! I’m hoping for better tech support from InMotion Webhosting as well as a few new cool features.

It’s been a pretty relaxed New Year’s Day so far. I used the very last drop of my Lush Rose Jam shower gel this morning, so I had to top it with a couple of sprays from my last sample of By Kilian Rose Oud, which is a lovely rose-vanilla with hardly any oud in the picture. I smellz gud.

One of my perfume-related goals for the year is to use up samples and decants, so I’m beginning as I mean to go on. Of the four Rose Oud samples I owned, there’s only this one left, and it’s half empty.

Another goal is to test at least six new releases this year. A third goal is to post here weekly — Scent Diary every Monday, at the very least — and a fourth is to post a freshly-written fragrance review each month. I’ve been too far behind with maintaining this blog, and honestly, the fact that I’ve been behind has actually kept me from posting. Now that we’re starting fresh this year, I’m ready to take up the responsibility of regular posting, albeit less frequently than in the past.

In other news, I’ve been doing a lot of design stuff recently, with Canva and a few other online sites where one can manipulate images and add text. (I created the “2020” image above on Canva. Yay me.) It’s fun!

And I am of course still working on my fiction. I’m also still dealing with some medical issues, but I hope to be able to find some solutions this year.

Have you got some intentions for the year? Feel free to share. I wish all of you 365 days of awesomeness!
