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.

Free Investment Advice: Low Volume / High Volatility

One of the things that many investors can get very frustrated by in trading stocks is the waiting. The waiting is the hardest part; especially when you’re dealing with a speculative, micro-cap stock which may have very low trading volume. With low trading volume comes higher volatility in the stock price. Your stock may be in a holding pattern because the company may be waiting for some news or reclassification or other market moving information. However it’s important for new investors to follow these three rules when trading in a low volume/high volatility stock so that you don’t lose your mind with the waiting and you don’t break the bank from the losses.

Average in/Average Down: The temptation can be very real when you get some news on a small-cap stock to want to sell out of all of your other positions and dump all of your cash onto the one stock. While that may work in theory, in practice it is often far less true. Yes you may miss times when you could have made a lot more money if you had just gone all-in at once; more often the truth is that you will put in all your money and lose all of your mind. Even after a brief pop, your stocks value will invariably come back down. Probably. For that reason when you are dealing with small-cap low-volume high volatility stocks you need to average in and you need to average down. That means if you buy stock in at a dime and it goes down to a halfpenny, you’ve just lost so much money! However if you average in and buy a few shares at a dime, wait, then buy a few more shares at a pull back to a nickel, wait, then buy more shares at a half penny when it has reached its bottom, you will be doing much better than in the first example. Averaging down takes a lot of the volatility out in a low-volume high volatility stock because; on paper; you are actually losing far less money than if you had gone all-in.

Go Outside: Another trap smalltime investors fall into is following their stocks on a tick-by-tick basis. You cannot stay glued to the computer screen when you could be doing so many other things; cook your wife dinner, knit a sweater, go throw a frisbee with the dog, just to do anything else but don’t watch your stocks every second of every day! Unless you are an experienced trader you’ll be wasting so much time by doing this. Moreover you’ll look a little crazy. One of the keys in order to be successful in stock trading is not to watch the movement 24 / 7. It’s about knowing how to diversify your geldanlage. There are several platforms that you may consider. You just have to be strategic about it.

Set Your Stops/Hold Your Nose: One thing every investor needs to know is when they want to get in, when they want to get out, and what is the most they will lose. If the answer is that you don’t want to ever sell at a loss, then that makes setting your “Stop Loss” a little easier. Say you invest in 100 shares of a $5 stock for $500. You’ve decided the least you want to walk away from the table with is $200. So you set what’s called a Stop Loss for $2. Then you will most likely find someone to buy your stocks on the way down. Not always but usually. And that is how you guard against that.

We didn’t come to the investing world to lose money though so if you’re feeling lucky or if you’re feeling confident, then you need to trust your gut. You can’t quibble too much over these tiny details; you need to be strong in your investment hypothesis. Because in low volume periods or in low volume stocks you’re going to experience volatility; you need to be prepared for that. You should never invest in a stock before you’ve decided when to get in and when you want to get out; that includes on the upside. If you’re going to hold on to a stock for 50 years; then you don’t need to set your sell orders. However if you are like most of us you have an idea of when you want to get out then you need to set your sell order. Say you would love this stock to go to $36. So you buy at $5 and you set your sell order at $36. This doesn’t often happen, but if it does, you’re going to do alright.

Setting your stop loss and sell orders is a great idea because this means that you don’t have to follow the stock. Low volume high volatility stock movements can be maddening; it’s a good idea to just set your sell orders and walk away. Once you have set your stops, you will be fine and can go knit a sweater, cook a meal, and play with that dog; your whole life will be much richer because of it.

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!

Understanding Depression, Emotional and Physical Pain: Mind-Body Connections

We tend, in ‘civilized, polite society’ to dissociate the mind and emotions from the body. We create artificial dichotomies between between emotion and action. Which is ridiculous because the mind and emotions are part of the physical body and they control physical action. And as we compartmentalize feelings, emotions and physical reactions, we also qualify pain. Physical pain we get; emotional pain baffles us.

But physical, emotional and mental pain and suffering are united. When we grieve, feel anger or loneliness, we say it ‘hurts’ and it does. Just as a contusion or laceration of the flesh hurts, emotional and mental anguish hurts. And because the mind, emotions and body are connected, so is the pain. Emotional pain causes body aches, headaches and exhaustion. Physical pain causes sadness, depression, anxiety, worry and emotional pain. Fear can cause stomach aches, digestive issues, bowel and bladder problems. Anger can cause cramped muscles and thundering head aches. Depression causes tension and tension causes depression; both of which produce muscle spasms, achy joints and pain.

The human body is complex and wonderful. It is self-regulating, self-maintaining and takes care of itself. Each body system functions independently and in unison with the other body systems. The body’s philosophy is ‘an injury to one is an injury to all’. The human brain orchestrates its resources: hormones, nerves, nourishment, impulses to provide maximum functioning for the body as a whole. The body is miraculously efficient. With the 75hard, the treatment of depression and mental problems are solved. The functioning of the mind is great to meet with the mental problems and solutions, The treatment of the injury is great to meet with the expectation and efficiency. 

Problems arise when we impose artificial constructs on the brain and body. When we force the body to do things it knows are counter-productive, the body rebels. Put your finger on a hot stove and what does the body do/ Automatic muscles systems jerk the endangered finger away, fast. Cut your foot on a nail and what happens? The body rushes all available resources to the injury. Body systems go into overdrive to repel invading infection clotting the blood, forming a scab and flooding the area with healing white blood cells. Drink too much alcohol and what does the body do? Ejects it, post haste.

And what the body does for physical injuries, it does for emotional injuries, also. When you feel stress, anxiety, fear, sadness, anger your brain puts all your body’s resources into action to cope with the immediate problem and get you to a healthy place fast. Have you noticed how tired you feel after a stressful situation? That’s your body saying, ‘We’ve just navigated rough seas! We need rest!’ Or when you have just received sad news? notice the overwhelming urge to curl up in a fetal position and cry? That’s your body saying, ‘all systems alert! Take evasive action!’ Your body loves you. Or how about when you’ve experienced hurt, rejection, loneliness or negativity? You instinctively reach out to those you trust to comfort you. She wants you to love her and take care of her. She will tell you very clearly what she needs to stay healthy, emotionally, mentally and physically. That was how she was made.

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.

Oversharers.Com And How Social Networking Became

What is Oversharers?

Oversharers.com is a website that reposts embarrassing Twitter and Facebook updates with witty commentary. The Oversharers editorial staff reviews the best submissions from users and posts the grossest and most strangely personal updates on the internet for public embarrassment. This is really similar to https://en.instaprivateviewer.com that you can use to tackle different issues related to private profiles on Instagram. 

Do you have a friend who constantly tweets her child’s potty training nightmares on Twitter? Do you have a friend who’s known for asking strange medical questions via Facebook status updates? You might consider submitting one or two of their choice updates to Oversharers.

Why is Oversharers socially relevant?

Besides being funny, Oversharers is trying to tell us something about our use of social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. To be fair, Oversharers will also take submissions from regular blogs and stories overheard in public places. But the vast majority of the material posted on Oversharers is culled from tweets and status updates.

At some point, we must have begun to feel the need to post such unnecessary details about our personal lives and bodily functions in publicly accessible places. Oversharers invites us to laugh at these TMI (too much information) posts, but also take a step back and think about how this sort of sharing became a social trend in the first place.

How did this happen?

Twitter and Facebook aren’t necessarily the root of the problem. Rather, the problem is how we’re taught to view Twitter and Facebook as inseparable from daily life. If you want to promote a product, it needs a Facebook page. If you want to publicize an event, you make an event page. The same goes for Twitter. If you have anything to sell or promote, it better be online 24/7.

The vast armies of tech-savvy, creative, unemployed people out there have also been taught that they must sell themselves. It’s not about what you know, but who follows you on Twitter or sees your Facebook status updates. Even folks who are gainfully employed now believe that the general internet-using public must find them witty if they are going to continue to succeed. Unfortunately, our lives are not always interesting on an hour-by-hour basis. That’s when we dive into the TMI-zone for material and become oversharers.

How much information is TMI?

Here are some rules to help you from becoming a victim on the Oversharers website and from embarrassing yourself in general:

  1. Anything to do with pee, poop, or sex does not make a good tweet or status update.
  1. If you couldn’t visit your grandmother and make the same “witty” comment about your life in her presence, don’t post it.
  1. Don’t use tweets and status updates as a primary means of communication with your friends. If you want to overshare with them, use the phone.
  1. If you are even slightly in the market for a job or a promotion, all your posts should be positive-sounding and neutral in the subject matter.
  1. Don’t rely on your Twitter or Facebook privacy settings to keep you safe. The Oversharers website reposts people’s TMI tweets and updates with their user name, picture, and “real” name attached. Anyone with internet access can see Oversharers, and your name might end up on a Google search for a tweet about your mysterious genital rash.
