Pheromone Love Scent

Right now I made a decision to take my business to the next level.  Growing a business in this economy can be daunting and frightening.  My friends will tell you that I have a strong inner core and strength and such optimism. Well that's because as a small business owner and building a nonprofit requires more than 80 hours a week.   Nonetheless, pounding the pavement, networking, and asking for donations takes confidence. 

In my daily online research,  I came across this website which caught my attention. Pheromones is increasingly in the news for the science behind it. Pheromones are airborne chemicals, detected through the nose that sends a signal to the brain and thus attracts the opposite sex. The problem is, through quick research, our bodies are producing less and less pheromones.
But can it be bottled? Well I'm going to try it. Love Scent Pheromone products is the web's only "pheromone superstore." They carry all the popular brands of pheromone cologne for both men and women as well as other related fragrance products. They also offer an iron-clad return policy and all products are shipped within one business day.

Let me know if you have tried it and what you think!
Also, by clicking here,   I receive a small percentage which goes directly to our nonprofit http://www.pawsitivelyhumane.org/.

To Get Rug or Not To Get Royal Queen Rug

For awhile I've been contemplating getting a new area rug for my living room. The same color. My decor and color scheme is Hollywood black and silver with purple and fuschia accents. So my current rug is purple but tattered from former pets. 

In my search I came across this stunning piece by stamprugs.com. No wavering, no debating, no hesitation--it hit me--that rare occurence when you exclaim--that's it!! Rugs inspired by the iconic Royal Mail stamps featuring the image of a young Queen Elizabeth II. The Stamp Rug can be used as a conventional carpet or hung on a wall as a decorative picture. Rug Maker has been officially granted the license by the Royal Mail to manufacture this exclusive collection of Stamp Rugs. The collection has a wide palette of colours and are handmade in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal from 100% New Zealand wool. This unique rug design creates a regal and elegant atmosphere to any room.

And then the price tag.  Close to $2,000 for size 5' x 7'.  That includes shipping. You see the transportation cost is hefty like the rug. What to do? Well, if I'm only renting this condo, then it doesn't make financial sense to invest so much if I'm not going to live here for a few more years and end up having to lock it away in storage. But months have passed, and I still dream about this rug like a school girl crush.  No it's more than a crush. It's a goal kept alive by enduring love. I never get this emotional about decor.

What should I do? Still debating...

Soma Intimates

Does anyone remember the original Victoria's Secret brand? The style, the colors?
It wasn't your racy hot pink and black targeted to young woman of today. No it was for all women especially women 30+. Woman who wanted to wear a secret sexy, alluring undergarment beneath her proper Victorian exterior.

I remember working every Christmas break during high school and college at the local Victoria Secret store at the Columbia Mall. In addition to bras and panties they carried luxurious bath robes, matching slippers and the items were suitable for either me or my mother. Elegant,  but still sexy satin pyjamas. And the men's silk boxers. Oh yes, my male friends each received silk boxers every year.

I didn't have time to shop so work was also my one stop shopping destination. It also helped to get the employees discount. The Victoria's secret once-upon-a-time collection was sexy, but tasteful. I miss those days. How trends and the brand have changed.

Recently I came across  a new brand that reminded me of this sexy-but-elegant style.  Introducing Soma Intimates.  Touting "a bra for every occasion" they feature full coverage, demi cups. unlined, multiway and more. And the styles are alluring and prices are reasonable.

Baroque swirl sheer over holiday inspired black and red bra with a plunge connecting at the bow and faux diamond is the best selling bra. Of course there's a matching bikini panty. Price $46.

Nothing says sexy like a little peek-a-boo underneath that jacket or blouse. It's a bra and camisole in one, in luxurious soft lace. Price $48.

Their collection includes the "Embraceable Robe" and matching velvet slippers, as well as sweaters, leggings, cardigans and lace tops. Just look below at this luxurious robe!

Regulary $79, this robe is currently on sale for $39!

 I just love the classics! Don't you? Visit their website, make your selection and look forward to smiling everytime you pass by that other store. That's kid stuff. Soma is for the goddess within you.

Currently Soma is offering $20 off a $60 purchase by using code 10103 at http://www.soma.com/ or by phone at 1-866-768-7662. The offer expires December 15, 2011. Plus get free shipping with any $75 purchase.

If you're a true fashionista or news hog, then you've probably learned that Donatella Versace is now creating a fashion line for H&M stores. That's right, in a string of celebrity-designed-fashion-wear-for-discount stores, the Versace brand has joined the ranks of out-of-reach to now affordable by commonfolk.

More recently Jennifer Lopez, Sofia Vergara, and the Kardashian sisters announced their fashion lines at everyday bricks and mortar retailers like Sears and KMart.

Love the pink dress! I'm getting this one! To view more styles, watch the video below.

Johnnie Walker Double Black Label

The unveiling of the Johnnie Walker Double Black label shined in style in South Beach, Miami.
In a popular hotel with a hip name, Johnnie Walker Double Black premiered at the Soho Beach House among admirers of quality and authentic whiskey.

Johnnie Walker Double Black is a bold and complex whisky. The trademark smoky characteristic of Johnnie Walker Black Label has been amplified to deliver an additional rich intensity of flavor.  This distinguished character is achieved by blending select single malts from Johnnie Walker’s unparalleled reserves including both naturally smoky aged whiskies and whiskies matured in deep charred oak barrels.

So who is the mastermind behind this creation? Master Blender Jim Beveridge created Johnnie Walker Double Black to complement the current styles of the Johnnie Walker portfolio while maintaining the centuries-old tradition of blending the world’s leading Scotch whisky.

Johnnie Walker Double Black is a masterfully crafted whisky for individuals who want to explore the intense and powerful flavors of Scotch at a level of quality and authenticity that only Johnnie Walker can deliver.

In case you are new to the world of whisky or whiskey (both are correct spellings), the best way to serve Scotch is ‘on the rocks’. In other words, you should not add anything to it, before serving. Just pour it in a glass, directly over the ice cubes. Scotch lovers believe that adding anything to the drink masks its smooth taste and rich aroma.

However, if you don't consider yourself a purist and like to explore beyond the single taste, here is a link for five cocktail recipes using Johnnie Walker brand.

Do you drink whiskey? Why or why not? What's your favorite drink? Leave a comment below!
