5 Tips For Creating a Romantic Night and Fun Dinner at Home

Valentines Day is just around the corner and maybe you're already thinking how to make this occasion really special. Here are some ideas for a romantic and fun dinner at home either for several couples or just for two.
Sensual Scents
Whether planning for one guest or several couples, let robust spices (think cloves, canela, cardamom and black pepper) help set the mood with the help of a standard frying pan. Toast the spices just to their smoking point, and the room will fill with an inviting--and delicious--bouquet.
Pairing Is Caring
When prepping for a perfect evening, pairings are a fun way to turn any meal into a special occasion and spice up the fun. Plan three courses and pair each with a small cocktail. A fun and easy way is to use one base spirit in three different ways.
Make It A Group Effort Let your guests in the kitchen and encourage them to enjoy the tactile sensation of the food as it is prepared. Start the party early and enjoy cocktails as you cook.

Scents and Fragrances

Important things to know about scents and fragrances
Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the difference between eau de parfum, eau de toilette, and eau de cologne?

The difference is in the amount or concentration of essences in the product. The highest concentration is in eau de parfum at 15% to 25%, then eau de toilette at 6% to 14%, and finally eau de cologne at 3% to 5%. Put simply, the higher the concentration of essences the stronger the perfume and the longer it will last.

Why do some fragrances last much longer than others?

The first consideration is the strength of the fragrance. This will make a difference to how long it lasts. As a guide, the following normally applies: colognes last 3 to 4 hours, eau de toilette 5 to 6 hours and eau de parfum 7 to 8 hours. However, people with dry skin usually find that a fragrance's holding time is shorter on their skin than it would be on somebody with oily skin. This is because oily skin has more natural moisture to hold in a fragrance.

Why do some fragrances smell different on my skin when compared with my friend's?

This is because pH levels (the amount of acidity in our skin) varies from person to person. Our individual levels of pH will determine how each ingredient in a fragrance will react on our skins which in turn impacts on the smell.

How can I keep my fragrance from going off?

Keep your fragrances in a cool, dry and dark area as sunlight can unbalance the various ingredients. An opened bottle should be kept in its box to ensure a longer shelf life.

How should I or where should I apply fragrance?

Fragrance should be applied to pulse points. This is where the blood vessels are closest to the skin giving off more heat and acting like mini fragrance pumps. Pulse points are the wrist, behind the ear, crook of the arm and knee, base of the throat. Also, for long lasting fragrance spray at the ankles, it allows the fragrance to blossom up.

How To Choose a Quality HVAC Professional

Florida is known for swampy days, lots of sunshine and warm temperatures. The worst feeling is the air conditioner going out in the dead of summer. Even the breeze off the water does little to cool the house. Here are some tips to choose a quality heating and cooling professional.
Referrals
Family and friends are a great place to start looking for a Riverview FL heating and cooling professional. They can tell you who they loved using and who they didn’t. A flashy website or radio ad may sound good but talking to people and reading testimonials can give you a better idea on whether or not they deliver on their promises.
Inspections
An HVAC contractor shouldn’t give you with an estimate over the phone without properly inspecting your insulation, air conditioner or vents. How can they know how much work is to be done without ever looking at your unique situation? An inspection shouldn’t cost you anything.
Licenses
If the HVAC contractor has a website, see if they post their licensing and c…

Cancelling Timeshares: When to Do It

Sometimes buying a timeshare will seem like a great idea upfront, but turn out to be something that doesn’t quite fit into your budget. In these circumstances, it’s important to consider how to get out from under a timeshare.
Why Cancel Timeshares
Sometimes timeshares aren’t what anyone thought that they would be. The pitch sounds good and so you sign up. While there is usually a period of time where you are allowed to rescind the contract. A few days to a couple of weeks is usually the timeframe that you have. If you decide after that point in time to cancel, then you may have to go through a longer process. Still, one of the reasons that people get rid of the timeshares is because it doesn’t fit into their budget. If this is you, then there are ways that you can get out from under it.
Timeshare Cancellation Services
Timeshares are notoriously difficult to sell. There is little control over timeshares. Likewise, there are fees that you have to pay, regardless of whether you use the pro…

He will take care of me

It's been two months since my condition became  worse. My health has deteriorated a lot. I have lost a lot of weight and looks so haggard. I've tried both the synthetic medicine and herbal medicine but to no avail. I guess I've made a wrong decision and I really regret that I did not ask the Lord for wisdom. But I'm not losing hope. I believe the Lord is faithful in His promises. The miracle healing I'm praying for is on its way now. I trust in the Lord with all my heart. This trial will soon be over.
