Perfumes smells are very individual things, a scent smells different depending on who is wearing it. This is due to our different body chemistry. This is actually a complicated thing. A scent may smell fabulous on one person and not so spectacular on someone else. A lot of this has to do with our things that affect our body chemistry such as diet and even stress. And then there is the attraction factor. We wear scents for a lot of reasons but most of us wear them to feel more attractive. This is not always done in an effort to necessarily attract a partner, but it is nice feel attractive, even if you are not looking to “hook up.”
How we View Attraction
If you are looking to meet someone special you may do any number of things to gain the confidence you need to feel attractive. Women, may dress sexier than normal, possibly show a little extra cleavage or try a new hairdo in an effort to feel sexy. While men are less likely to work on hair and clothing options they sometimes do things to make their bodies more desirable. Working out is one possibility, they may also visit a natural male enhancement site to inquire about increasing their package in the hopes of gaining more confidence.
Men also engage in physical displays of their virility in order to seem more attractive. Feats of strength and of stupidity are all quite common on any given night at your local singles bar. Showing off might just be innate in men. Many men believe women are attracted to “Alpha Males” strength and dominance are much more desirable traits than shyness and insecurity. If a guy can’t dominate physically he can still be an alpha male by displaying other favorable qualities. Some guys think it’s all about having money when it comes to the game of attraction but there are other more desirable qualities that don’t involve the size of your bank account or anything else for that matter. Being socially adept is also a desirable trait for many women. A sense of humor is also attractive as long as the humor is more about being witty and amusing and less towards the frat boy or sophomoric end of things. Displaying a positive and confident body language is another way to attract attention from the opposite sex. Understanding the rules of attraction will make it easier to show confidence in the wonderful world of dating.
So you want to give it a go on the indie scene as a musician. If you are the industrious type you could do quite well. There has been a movement in the past few years away from major labels, Independent musicians sometimes attach to smaller labels or become their own label. The benefit of this new movement is that the artists retain control over the direction of their career. Also, so many artists who may have never gained the attention of the record industry have been able to establish fanbases on their own with the help of the internet.
Things to Consider
If you plan to tour the country either nationally or regionally you will need to find a way to move about. You may want to drive from show to show; this is a good idea especially when gas is not too expensive. If you are a band you can share the load on driving duties. If you are a solo act you will lots of me time and that can be a tough thing. So that is something to consider. You also need a place to rest your head from time to time. Planning ahead is key to finding good hotel rates. In time you may develop good relationships with some fans and fellow musicians who can offer you a place to sleep for the night, but you should always plan on that not being the case.
Other Things to Consider
If you work as an indie musician you may not have access to proper healthcare. This may soon be changing with the passing of the healthcare reform act. Unfortunately even though you may be able to get healthcare you when faced with an illness, you still may need to buy prescriptions that are not covered. You may find the answer is to use non-traditional sources for meds. Yes, that’s right you may want to go the indie route yet again, and use an online canadian pharmacy, for your prescriptions.
How to Look the Part
You need to look professional. This is possible with a good web presence. A top notch operation is not hard to achieve. You should start with a good and informative website. Your site should give fans and potential talent buyers a clear idea of who you are as an artist. You also need to have a good booking strategy, and when you get a gig you need to work hard to promote your show. You need to create a buzz somehow, it might be a video or social media but there is a lot of competition out there so you need to stand out.
So many of today’s phones have so many bells and whistles that it’s actually difficult for some individuals to figure out how to make a simple phone call! And don’t even get those same individuals started on attempting a text. You might as well be speaking in tongues when it comes to explaining the mechanics of smart phones in general to some people.
Is the New iPhone for You?
People will need to decide if the new iPhone 5 is something from which they can benefit before figuring out whether or not they’ll need to take out personal loans with which to pay for them. Some folks just want to call and text. Others not only want but need access to the internet. And then there are the apps and games. If by ‘apps’ you think we’re talking about those little before dinner snacks at the restaurant… best for you to stick with phone calls and the occasional text. No offense!
Is the iPhone Affordable?
Cell phone companies want you to buy their biggest, best phones. They are not stupid when it comes to finance either. Shop around because there is always the one company out there that is trying to beat all the other companies with special incentives. Phone trade-ins, buy one-get one, contracts, upgrades… all of these can and will come into play when new smart phone and cell service shopping. Never, ever, jump at the first offer no matter how sweet it seems if you haven’t checked around beforehand. Particularly in the case of those contracts, once you’re tied in it’s going to be a real pain to try to buy out and go with a seemingly better deal.
You’ll end up paying even more just to get out of your contract than you may have if you just toughed it out and smart shopped for your next smart phone!
If you thought that pumpkin pie was probably invented by the traditional, well accepted depiction of the black and white clothed, buckled shoe wearing, bonneted pilgrims get a load of this…
First Pumpkin Seeds Trace Back to Around 6000 BCE
We’re not talking actual pumpkin pie just yet but evidence of the seeds themselves has been traced back to at least 5500 BCE or as much as 7000 BCE. Eventually pumpkin was exported from its origin (Mexico) to France and England. English cookbooks list pumpkin as a pie-filler within recipes around the 17th century. But not until the 19th century did it pop up in American culture as a Thanksgiving specialty. New England followed the pilgrim furnished pumpkin pie recipe whereas England itself decided to utilize a method of cooking sugar, spices and apples in the whole pumpkin.
Hey, This Tastes Great—Let’s Mess With It!
Ever heard this: ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’? Well, fortunately, not everyone lives by that mantra. Here are just a few concoctions that have resulted from Americans’ fascination of and taste for pumpkin pie: pumpkin spiced latte, pumpkin beer (mmm…beer) and ale, candy, pancakes, cheesecake, coffee and ice cream. Variations of pumpkin pie for non-pie individuals are: pumpkin tarts/custard, pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting, fritters, muffins, cookies, and for those health conscious people—tofu pumpkin pie. Ugh, it hurts me just to type that! As far as the traditional slice of pumpkin pie goes it can be served with good old fashion whipped cream (or—brand name warning–Cool Whip), vanilla or coffee ice cream, and a light sprinkling of either ground cinnamon or ground ginger on top of either choice.
And pumpkins aren’t strictly for dessert anymore either. Main dishes such as pumpkin lasagna, chicken-pumpkin chowder, pumpkin seed pesto or pumpkin cannelloni and side dishes like pumpkin bread, sage-pumpkin cream sauce, pumpkin butter or curried peas and pumpkin can brighten any holiday table.
