Carolina Herrera’s 212: My Re-Introduction To Perfume

To tell the truth, I’d never heard of Carolina Herrera before I was in the Duty-Free on my way to the UK and there was a special display of these perfumes (about 6 years ago). Since I was tired, I decided a quick pick-me-up of a spray of perfume would help. Little was I to know that it would be so delightful!

You should know that I have very sensitive skin, and many perfumes can make me come out in a rash. So, I was taking a chance with trying this one. For this reason, I try not to wear perfumes too often, and my collection is a very small one.

This is also because have extremely specific tastes when it comes to perfumes. It can’t be too sweet, nor too musky, nor too woody. I go for the mainly tangy citrus scents with light floral and/or soapy fresh undertones. After my favorite perfume went off the market (Colours by Benetton), I practically stopped wearing perfume altogether. I thought I’d never find a good day-time perfume that didn’t make me itch all day and also suited my taste.

But Herrera’s 212 totally fit the bill for me. It has a fresh, citrus scent when first put on, and then fades (eventually) into a clean, soft flowery scent that is akin to the scent of baby powder. The overtone of citrus takes quite a long time to fade. More specifically, when I put it on in the morning, I feel refreshed by the scent. By the time I go to bed at night, the citrus scent has faded and I am left with a very clean, soft, after-shower scent. Its as if I’ve just had a nice bath and then powdered myself with baby powder. In short, it’s a refreshing perfume all day long.

I didn’t have the funds to purchase it the first time I tried this perfume, and almost forgot the name of the product. Then, several months later, when I was in the US and while in a department store, I looked for the packaging and took a sampler stick of it – which, conveniently, had the name of the product on the stick. I stuck this into the breast pocket of my jacket. I was blessed from that time until the end of my trip with a lovely scent. When almost a week later I got home, I pulled out the stick for my husband, and we could still smell the perfume on the stick. Luckily, he liked it and kept the stick. When he went abroad about three months later, he returned with a present for me – this perfume! (Now you know why I love the guy?)

I have to admit that (while in the Duty-Free) the packaging also drew me to this product. Totally in white and silver, the color scheme made me think of something very clean. This wasn’t in the least deceptive, as I’ve mentioned above. A quick look at the picture above, however, maybe a bit deceptive. What you are looking at is a solid tube with two small, round spray bottles of the product tucked artfully into the ends. These two little globes of perfume fit into the tube at very unusual angles, so that to replace them properly, you may need to rotate them a bit. On top of this, what you see in the picture here all goes into another tube so that it can all stand upright on your dressing table. I’d say that this unusual packaging is the only drawback of this product. But it certainly won’t stop me from using it!

I have been using this (sparingly) in the mornings. It is light enough for day-wear and lasts long enough to continue to smell good the whole day. I know I’ll be devastated when these two bottles run out. Perhaps my husband will remember this on one of his trips abroad and buy it for me again. I certainly hope so. This perfume has quickly become my favorite, and since it’s still selling strong, it looks like it may also have become a classic.

Making Money Online With Bukisa: A Review

In this day and age, there’s plenty of article submission sites to pick, some will pay you revenue for your work (fantastic) while some won’t (no thank you). Among the top list of sites that pay in this category is Bukisa. While Triond, a similar site, has a stronger reputation, Bukisa is the one that pays the most out of the pair. Bukisa currently pays $3.53 per 1000 unique page views, therefore making it the highest paying article publishing website ever. It is also apparent that Bukisa’s popularity and reputation is growing rapidly because within the past few months, Bukisa’s pay rate had increased from $3.42 to $3.45 and now to $3.53, so they must be doing something right.

Bukisa pays out via Paypal around the 10th of every month and minimum amount is $10. I know that may sound like a lot compared to places like Triond which has a minimum cash out of $0.50. But I can assure you that Bukisa is the more profitable on out of the two, but that is so obvious that I don’t even need to tell you. I personally have been a Bukisa member since February 2009, having published 149 submissions, over 6000 unique page views, and over $23 in earnings since I joined.

It is relatively very easy to write for Bukisa, you can submit up to 25 articles per day and it doesn’t take long for your work to get approved, they’re also not too strict in any sense of the word when it comes down to it (it’s not like trying to write for About.com, let’s put it that way). Bukisa is one of my biggest personal online moneymakers and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wishes to make anything credible in terms of decent cash online. If I could get $23 with 150 submissions, imagine how much you could get with 1000 submissions or more? The reputation of online fashion courses should be checked at Evergreen Wealth Formula 2.0 review. The modes of payment should be stable and healthy for the online learners. The submission of the correct information should be there to get effective results. The payment is made in form of cash at online courses.

One idea, and this has been said countless times, is to submit your work to Triond first and then submit to Bukisa in order to get some extra change and cash in there. This may put your Bukisa income at a slight disadvantage though because of how Google indexes pages that are duplicate; in this case, I would just submit anything over 250 words to Bukisa (which is their minimum word count) and anything under that to Triond. Or, alternatively, submit your work to Triond first, wait about three months, then submit to Bukisa, that way it won’t be so obvious. Whichever you choose, happy earning!

The Pros And Cons Of Coffee

It all started out so simply, I had never drunk much coffee as an adult but one day a friend of mine brought this fabulous coffee creamer and bean and you can try these out by clicking here as well, within days, I was hooked. I was a convert to drinking coffee and I looked forward to my daily fix.

Things went along smoothly for several years until one day I was in for an annual doctor’s visit. As the doctor lowered her glasses to peer over the top I knew I was in trouble. “Do you drink coffee?” she asked me. “Yes” I managed to answer. “I need you to stop immediately” she informed me. She then went on to inform me that my blood pressure was very high and she wanted to see if she could get it lowered by diet and exercise. I left the clinic mourning my loss. Not going down without a fight. I began to research the pros and cons of coffee drinking.

Pros

The jolt of caffeine in that morning cup of coffee helped get me up and moving in the morning. I also read that between one and five cups of coffee daily could help to reduce the chances of dementia, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s disease. How you may ask, there are antioxidants in that cup of coffee, and those antioxidants may just prevent some of the damage to brain cells and boost those neurotransmitters in your brain. Sadly, I was going to have to take my chances on these diseases.

Additionally, those who drink at least 4 cups of coffee per day had a lowered risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Again, the antioxidants were cited as the reason for this occurrence. Lower stroke rates, lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and the coffee drinkers have a lower (43 percent) rate of liver cancer. I was really missing my coffee now.

After reading the benefits of coffee I was becoming rather skeptical as I continued my research to find out the cons.

Cons

The first con I read began like this: “If you’re sensitive to caffeine…” I knew I was in trouble again. While those who drink caffeine daily build a tolerance to caffeine, my body had been a late bloomer for caffeine. This was causing all of my problems. Had I started out much slower I may have been okay.

Once that level of tolerance is built up people begin to rely on the coffee jitters to wake up in the morning, they begin to change their sleep patterns if they drink too much or too little of the brew. Our bodies adapt by producing more adenosine (a slow down chemical receptor in the brain) which makes us feel the need for more and more coffee in order to be alert and function. Extreme fatigue, splitting headaches ensue and thus a vicious cycle has begun.

Caffeine is also a well-known sleep stealer. If you are having trouble sleeping (which I was) try cutting back on all caffeinated drinks perhaps only drinking them in the morning hours.

About this time in my research, my doctor called to inform me that my cholesterol was also sky-high. She suggested I read up on cholesterol-lowering diets and follow one. Yes, coffee can ruin your good cholesterol as well folks. Especially if you’re using boiled or unfiltered coffee such as a coffee press or an old fashioned percolator. How those filters filter out the cholesterol was beyond me.

Naturally, coffee isn’t recommended for nursing or pregnant women. Concerns about the coffee getting into your baby causing the baby to be irritable were the main concerns cited.

It’s been just over a year now since I gave up my morning coffee. My cholesterol is down and my blood pressure is better although I finally did have to go on blood pressure medication. The doctor blames genetics for part of the health concerns but tells me that my adherence to non-caffeinated drinks has helped me considerably. Today the only time I drink anything with caffeine is when I have a migraine and then it only takes a few sips of a dark caffeinated soda to take the edge off. I guess I’ll just have to take my chances with dementia, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s and settle with lower blood pressure and cholesterol.

Real Way To Make Money Online

For years I have tried different ways to make money at home and online. There are a ton of blogs, etc. and articles telling you that you will make $5000 per day sitting at home. Now, this is simply not true – or at least not from my experience. However, I did find a way to make money online using some paid to click sites, no investment at all – and then using an online investment that gives a great return. You can manage all of this for around 1 hour per day on FKC-Concept.com and If you are smart you could wrap it all into a corporation and make even more money through tax shelters….but that is for another day.

Here is the system that I used, and it works for me – I am giving you this advice for free. There is nothing you have to give me – and nothing out of pocket to cost for you. Here is what you do.

Go to the following link (It is a clixsense site) http://www.clixsense.com/?2987449and sign up at clixsense to start on paid to click advertising. Basically the premise is that you pay nothing to get started and get paid $.01 per ad you click. You have to view the ads for 30 seconds to get paid. The site pays out starting at $10 and I have been paid a few times here. This is not a site where you will make a ton of money, but when used in compilation with the others I am listing here, you make more.

Go to www.neobux.com and set up an account here as well. Again, it costs you absolutely nothing to get started and you can begin to do the same type of clicking as with clixsense up above. You will get paid $.01 per ad you click and you again have to view for 30 seconds. You open both clixsense and neobux at the same time to maximize your time. The thing about neobux.com is that you can purchase referrals starting at $.75 for 3 referrals who then begin to earn money for you as well (about $.06 to $.08 per day). This again doesn’t seem like much but begins to add up after a couple of months. I have been using neobux for over 2 months and now make around $4 per day with maybe 10 minutes of time invested on my end. You just have to check your referrals, click on a few ads and that is all. You purchase your referrals through ad revenue that you made from the site – see no investment.

Then go to the following link http://www.youptc.com/?r=sethd21at youptc.com and sign up for an account. This is a similar site to those above. You are paid for $.01 per ad that you click. Sign up for two accounts with different names on here so you can maximize your revenue. This is the ad that will make good money for you. As you earn, wait until you have $4.14 saved into your account. At this point cash out – it will take 7 days to hit your AlertPay account – and then use the money to purchase 6 rented referrals. They will begin making money for you as well as your clicks. Again, it takes time, a few months to build up a balance, but right now I am renting about 400 referrals per month and making just under $16 per day using this system for youptc.com alone! You can also get direct referrals as well. Again, as you see, there is absolutely no investment of your money into these systems.

My next recommendation is for you to go to www.geniusfunds.com and set up an account. There is a $50 minimum investment with an AlertPay account. Once you have built up $50 from your earnings from youptc.com, clixsense.com, and neobux.com you can invest in the Genius Funds program. They pay out very good investment and it only took me 3 months to get my original money back and then some.

This is not complicated, I have done this in a few months. There is no money down – just an investment of about 1 hour per day of your time to get started. The tough part is to not get discouraged as it takes time to get doing with the investment pennies to build in your accounts, but once they do and you can start to rent referrals, you begin to make good money from all of this. If you don’t believe me, give it a try, try it for 2 weeks and see what you think, try it for 2 days and see what you think. It really does work – and that is the truth. I hope to eventually make around $700 to $800 per month of passive income from this to make some extra cash. It should take about 1 year to do so, but then I will be happy. Each of these sites above pays no problem – give them a try.

The most important link I can give you is http://www.youptc.com/?r=sethd21 as this is the newest site that has a great business plan and is legit. Get on board now as they take very good care of their members. Try it out and see! It only takes a couple of minutes to sign up!

How to Use Custom Fonts in Photoshop CS3

Tools needed for this Tutorial

Photoshop (Any Version will work)

WinRar

In this tutorial, I will be showing you where to find your custom fonts on the web, where to put them on your hard drive, how to open .rar files and how to use your college fonts properly in Photoshop. Also, it would be good to know that for this tutorial I am running under Windows XP.

You can get WinRar at the following link—- gt;www.rarlabs.com Download to desktop, install and you’re ready to go. What this program allows you to do is to gather multiple files and “zip” them together so it cuts the hassle of having to send multiple files at a time. More than likely the fonts that you download will come as .rar’s, carrying multiple files.

Firstly, let’s talk about where to find your custom fonts. Below are a few links I’ve gathered to help you get started on finding the font that suits you.

  • www.dafont.com
  • www.abstractfonts.com
  • www.1001FreeFonts.com
  • www.fontfoundry.com/

You can find thousands of sites just like these. Head over to your favorite search engine and type in “Custom Font”.

One thing I would like to note is on many of these websites you will have to make sure that the font you download is Free to Use. Normally on the same page as the text and font name, the “Free to use” will be visible somewhere close.

On to the 2nd part of this tutorial; Putting them on your hard drive.

This is important to know because if you do not place them in the right folder, Photoshop will not recognize them, thus you will not be able to use them properly.

When you have your custom font downloaded (usually placed on your desktop), it will either come as a .rar or just the single font file. If you have WinRar, right-click on your .rar (The icon will look like a stack of books) and click on “Extract here”. This will extract all of the files inside the .rar into the same place the .rar is located (on the desktop in this example). Now simply select all of your files, right-click on one of them, cut, and navigate to your Control Panel. If you do not know where your Control Panel is, it’s Start gt; Control Panel. Now that you are inside your Control Panel, there will be a folder called “Fonts”. Place these files inside of that folder and you’re done. Simple, huh?

Lastly, if you want to use your new custom font in Photoshop simply open Photoshop up, make a new document, mouse over and click on the “T” on the left panel. From here, go into your new document, click, drag and that’s it. Start typing!

I hope this tutorial was helpful! 🙂

How to Clean Your Living Room

I really am the most awful housekeeper. I never would have expected that growing up, because I always cleaned my room, did the dishes and a host of other chores, and they never bothered me much. Of course, now I realize that I just did those things because my mom told me to. As an adult, my house is a horror zone. It’s all I can do to keep the dishes washed, and, truth be told, my husband usually takes care of that. For the more labor intensive stuff, forget it. It’s not that I’m too busy, it’s just that I hate doing it, and I keep telling myself that I’ll do it next weekend and suddenly a year has gone by. It’s a good thing my mother occasionally comes over, otherwise I probably wouldn’t even get around to doing the basics like cleaning my toilet. There are certain things that one simply has to do if their mother is coming to visit, even a too-lazy-to-clean bum like me.

The most random areas in my house need cleaning. For example, I can’t remember anyone in our house ever cleaning the baseboards under the kitchen cabinets when I was growing up, yet in this house they most definitely need to be scrubbed down. Did my mom have magical baseboards that cleaned themselves? Did little fairies come and do it in the night? No idea. All I know is that mine look like they are going to grow paws and grab at my feet when I’m making a tuna sandwich. The cleaning of the living room can be a difficult task for the person. With the availably of професионални домоуправители софия цени, the difficult work of the person will become easy. There will be no requirement of taking stress and performing the work. The work will be done with efficiency without any mistake in the living room.

I need to take each room in the house and make a list of things to do. Otherwise it’s just too overwhelming. I’m currently sitting in the living room, and here are a few things I can see right now, although I’m sure I’ll think of more later:

  1. Haul out the step stool and clean the blades of the ceiling fan. There must be a solid inch of dust clinging around the edges of the blades.
  2. I just noticed paint flecks on the glass of the barrister’s bookcase from when we painted the room in September. (It was a miracle that we ever got around to painting at all, but that’s another story.) So that needs to scrubbed or scraped or whatever to get the paint off.
  3. Vacuum. This is really embarrasing – our vacuum died about six months ago. We finally replaced it three weeks ago, but we still haven’t vacuumed!
  4. Wash the windows, in and out. We’ve lived here four years and that hasn’t been done once.
  5. Dust in general.
  6. Beat all the couch cushions into submission.
  7. Clean and paint the baseboards (didn’t get around to doing that when we painted the walls).
  8. Touch up the ceiling paint – we taped it off when we painted the walls, but the paint pulled away when we took the tape off.

Hmm. That list actually isn’t too bad. Of course, it’s only one room, but that might manageable next Saturday. See? All one needs is a list. (Sure, Lisa, you just keep on telling yourself that, honey.)

And, I promise, if any of you ever come to visit, I’ll clean my toilet for you, too.

Cannabidiol Contents- Are They Good at their Jobs?

Why do we always depend on others to do the job for us? Why can’t we use our own head in sorting out important matters? This laziness and casual attitude is engraved within the human psyche as we have started considering ourselves royalty.

It is due to this negligence that we are not able to take care of ourselves and spoil our health in the process as by now it becomes too late to make amends. Well, some people may not like it but it is the bitter truth that needs to be accepted.

Fortunately, there are certain health remedies that can be utilized for the betterment of the body and one of them is CBD oil, which has played a major role in keeping people with sound health.

CBD Gummies’ Worth

The gummies form an important part of CBD and are quite in a league of their own due to being so relatable but what makes it different from oil is that it can only be consumed and because of its looks and features, people can easily mistake it for candy at first glance.

While CBD oil is perfect for treating anxiety, depression, joint pain, cancer and bipolar disorder, gummies are not regarded as efficient as their more erstwhile counterparts.

The main difference between oil and gummy is that the latter can be eaten only while the former can be applied to any part of the body. But in recent surveys, it has come out in the open that they are also perfect for treating anxiety and bipolar.

In the initial stages, you may not find CBD gummies having any effect but if you continue to use them over a period of time, you will find results similar to the ones you get by using CBD oil.

In conclusion, both are some of the best CBD edibles in the vast ocean of this medical remedy that is a god gifted boon for patients suffering from diseases.
