Oud Cashmere Mood Review

With all due respect to the versatile creativity of perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, I want to admit that I like his oriental perfumes more. Those in which the fragrant spices of oriental bazaars coexist with flowers and musk: Lumiere Noire, Absolue pour le Soir, Rose Barbare Guerlain, and Eau Noire Christian Dior. And with oud oil, too — the perfumer has created some wonderful fragrances based on ... Read full article: Oud Cashmere Mood Review from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes Magazine.

90s XI v Now XI, day 1: Slow pitch mars opening day

We’re playing a Sim Series between a 1990s World Test XI and a Current World Test XI using Cricket Captain’s ‘All-Time Greats’ mode. Let’s start with teams and stats. Partly because we imagine you want to pore over the averages, but mainly because there’s a 12th man joke we want to do. First up, the 90s XI. We thought long and hard about who should be captain and decided that Andy Flower should be because he always seemed to thrive on responsibility. Then when we were shuffl...

The life of Dana Perino: the rare Fox News anchor who's worried about being boring

Dana Perino at Fox News Channel Studios on July 31, 2018 in New York. John Lamparski/Getty Dana Perino, 48, is the host of Fox News' "The Daily Briefing," a commentator on the "The Five," and co-host of the Fox podcast "I'll Tell You What."

5 Tips to Maintain Your Beauty as You Grow Older

In 2015, only around 12% of the world population was aged 60 or above. In less than three decades from now, the number of elderly citizens worldwide is expected to grow to 22%. That would mean, the number will nearly double.  As we get older, the amount of attention we pay to our health needs to increase. In addition to watching what we eat and how much we exercise, another integral part of body care surprisingly concerns our personal look. A recent paper published by Brazilian scien...

Dressing up for Election Day? These items can get you turned away at the polls

Getting ready to show up to the polls on Tuesday decked out in your favorite candidates’ swag? You may need to reconsider. Every state has rules restricting campaigning at polling places, with many banning it within 100 feet of the polls. But many states also have laws related to “passive electioneering,” which can include wearing...

Dein Horoskop im November – So stehen die Sterne in diesem Monat

Der neue Mond bringt neue Klarheit: Ab dem 3. November zieht der Merkur progerade ins Zeichen der Waage ein. Schluss mit Mercury in retrograde – es fällt uns nun wieder einfacher denn je, mit anderen zu kommunizieren. Aber so ganz haben wir den rückläufigen Merkur noch nicht überwunden. Bis zum 19. November verharrt der Botenplanet in seiner als Mercury Retroshade bekannten Schattenperiode und verdreht uns weiterhin den Kopf. Nun gilt: Immer mit der Ruhe, denn bald ist auch das überwunden.

Podcast #657: Why You Don’t Change (But How You Still Can)

Anyone who’s ever tried to lose weight, curb their temper, quit smoking, or alter any other habit in their lives knows that personal change is hard. Really hard. Most self-help books out there treat people like machines, blitzing past this difficulty and offering mechanical 5-step formulas for changing your life. My guest today says such simplified solutions hugely miss the mark. He argues that if you ever want to change, it’s more fruitful to understand why you don’t, than figure why you do,...

New at Ulta This Windy Monday Morning

Good Morning! Happy Monday! The wind is blowing hard here! It’s a cold day! The beautiful mum baskets on my porch all blew over! We jumped from being nice and warm to suddenly being freezing within a few days. I’m so confused. New York needs to decide what weather it wants and stick to it!

Get Ready For Turbulence And Its Impact

Turbulence is here and more is on the way. But don’t fear turbulence and don’t fear change. Adapt and overcome. Already, more and more signals show that the U.S. economy is returning to its pre-pandemic form of rapid growth and low unemployment. For lawyers, the market is already starting to tighten again with more and more companies struggling to find qualified talent. With viable vaccine candidates on the horizon, and treatment modalities already reducing the impact of Covid-19 greatly, the w...

NaNoWriMo – Day 1

I did my first day of NaNoWriMo yesterday, writing the first 1696 words of a new novel – basically one full scene from start to finish. It took an hour with a 10-min break in the middle, so it was 50 minutes of writing time. And oh it’s bad – so hideously bad – but it’s a start. It introduces a couple of characters, including the protagonist, sets up the theme, and has a bunch of dialog, but as far as fiction writing goes, it needs a lot of work. I made some editing notes too, just to jot ...

Here’s How You Can Encourage Your Employees To Upgrade Their Skills

At a time when many businesses are struggling to stay afloat, employees are under significant pressure to produce results. This might mean they are working harder, and working more hours, than ever before.  Unfortunately, employee development has also been deemphasized in favor of revenue-generating tasks in many businesses this year. While this is understandable as companies cope with a challenging economic climate while adapting to the reality of working remotely , it’s also a missed op...

My Second Sephora Sales Order, Yeah, There’s Another One!

Happy Belated Halloween! Mine was actually really super quiet! We went kayaking on Halloween! We actually had plans to stay in and binge some stuff but the day was too beautiful not to enjoy. We did finally get home to snuggle down and watch some telly. Sadly, my traditional Halloween party was cancelled but we are still being as safe as possible over here and it was for the best not to have a huge gathering of people. I think Friendsgiving will likely be cancelled as well and Thanksgivin...

Melania tells a joke in West Bend, Wisconsin.

"Joe Biden says he could do a better job leading this nation. Apparently, when you hide in a basement, you feel safe communicating your wishful thinking." I love the rough-hewn lumber background. It's almost as expressive of Melania's oneness with the place as Lady Gaga's pickup truck. Now, Lady Gaga was mocked for that effort at performing American rural culture — redneckface, we might call it. I’m voting for America #vote #election2020— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga)...
