Stem, Stemless And Thickness For Wine Glasses

Thickness for Wine Glasses
The ideal wineglass is paper-thin. Thin glass keeps the wine cool whereas thick glass absorbs the coolness and raises the wine’s temperature. Thin glasses also tend to have cut rims that permit the wine to flow smoothly onto the tongue. Additionally, thinner glass helps create a finer stream of wine to run across the taste buds on your tongue and it’s much more easier to appreciate what your wine looks like if you use thin wine glasses.

Thicker wineglasses are more durable and can usually be washed in the dishwasher, but they often have rolled edges that inhibit the smooth flow of the wine and tend to accentuate acidity and harshness.

Stem vs Stemless Glasses
Stemless wine tumblers have become very popular in recent years and there is no denying that they can look very nice. However, there are good reasons to avoid them if you want to get the most out of your wine drinking experience — as opposed to simply wanting to look hip and stylish. Stemless glasses force you to hold the glass by the bowl which the warmth of your hand will heat up the wine, changing its temperature from whatever is optimal to something higher. Even your first sip of wine may not be at the right temperature.

Wine glasses have stems not just for aesthetic reasons, but mainly so that the wine glass may be held without covering the bowl in greasy fingerprints (impeding your ability to see the wine properly). Holding by the stem also ensures that warmth from the hand does not influence the temperature of a wine that has been served chilled. This ensures that the heat of your hand isn’t transferred to the wine and keeps the glass bowl from being smudged. Another advantage of stemmed glasses is that they can be stored by hanging them upside down so no stale air or dust gets trapped in the bowl.

Fragrance Gifts For Her


A recent survey from the consumer market research shows that fragrance ranks in the top 5 on holiday shopping lists. Perfume is a highly individualised gift. Choosing one to give someone as a gift can be tough. There are few things to take into consideration when choosing the right fragrance for our beloved.

Consider the Purpose – When will it be worn? Lighter scents are usually worn during daytime, while more intense ones are used for the evening.
Consider Personality Style – Women who love floral perfumes are quite “girly” in their tastes. According to the stereotypes, they are sweet, shy and very feminine. Give a floral perfume to this kind of girl and she’ll love it for sure.On the other hand, fruity scents are perhaps a little “wilder” or young-at-heart. This target is often a sporty, outgoing person. They are good fun and have a sense of humor.
Consider the Perfume’s Image – Fragance should match the image to that individual.

Tricks To Apply Cream Blushes And Stick Blushes


Like most makeup, blush looks best when applied sparingly and with a light touch. Blush is available in several formulations: cream, powder, and stick. Generally, powder formulations are the easiest to apply and blend. And today we will be talking more about cream blusher and stick blush.

Gel blushes can look really translucent and sheer, so they give a natural, flushed look. But gel blushes usually dry quickly, so you have to work fast. It’s best to use your fingers and blend into the cheeks. With stick blushes, you can use your fingers or a brush. An easy way to know where you are applying the blush is to smile and apply blush to the round apples of your smile. The trick is not to go too far below the apple and don’t streak the product or it won’t look natural. You can apply directly from the stick and then blend out with your fingers or a brush. The warmth of your fingertip tends to help keep the blush movable. Or your other option is to work off the stick and then apply to the cheeks with your fingers.

Blusher sticks are the new make-up-bag staple. They snuck in there, slipped in between the kohl and the concealer, and have stayed due to the fact that they’re simple (no brush required, easy to blend, and easy to apply on public transport) and clean, in their little snap-shut casings. Having a stick formulation is great because of the convenience factor –- you can easily use it on your eyes and lips, too! But you can’t get the same variety and choice of colours that you would find in powder blushes, and if too much is applied it can tend to look greasy, so be wary of how much you apply. Twist up the blusher stick and and make sure the tip appears slightly above the container level. It will be easier for you to apply. Place the tip at the center of your cheekbone and stroke it lightly upward and outward toward your ear. Blend the blushing cream upward and outward with your fingertips to achieve a subtle effect.

The Risk Of Online Shopping

norton72890

Although there are many who enjoy online shopping, there are others who have fears about online shopping and do not enjoy this type of shopping. For these shoppers there too many concerns which prevent the shopper from feeling completely comfortable shopping online. This article will address these concerns and offer information about how shoppers can help to avoid these online shopping dangers and feel more comfortable about the process of shopping online.

Misuse/Theft On Credit Card Or Personal Details
Identity theft is a very real concern because unscrupulous individuals who acquire sensitive information about an online shopper can do a great deal of damage to the individual’s financial situation and credit score. While identity theft is a very valid concern, online shoppers are not completely vulnerable to identity theft in most cases. However, the online shopper should know how to determine whether or not the information they provide online is secure or not. This is important because while the risk of identity theft associated with online shopping through a secure website is relatively small, this risk is significantly larger when the website is not secure. For this reason, online shoppers should carefully examine the web address for any website in which they submit sensitive information. Fraud resulting from making payments over unsecured web pages and using an unsecured Wi-Fi connection. Websites which start with “https://” as opposed to “http://” indicate the information is being submitted through a secure server. Most reputable online retailers will provide a secure website for shoppers but some smaller online retailers may not offer this degree of security.

Paying For Goods That Never Arrive
This can happen quite frequently, but fortunately as consumers we have considerable protection from this when using reputable vendors. Sites such as Amazon and eBay offer ways to compensate consumers who could be ripped off by fraudulent third party sellers. Again we recommend you carefully check customer reviews and rating before making your purchase.

Cyberspace companies
Companies on the Internet may appear to be bigger or more credible than they really are. This means you risk dealing with bogus companies.Bogus online companise are those fake websites and email offers for goods and services that do not exist.

Dealing with Returns
Another problem which faces many online retailers is the potential for problems which result from the need to return items purchased online. In most cases the return process with online retailers is quite simple and is not more difficult than returning items to a regular store. In fact online retailers who have a traditional store often allow online shoppers to make returns to these locations instead of shipping the item back to the online retailer. However, returns are not always this easy. In some cases the shopper will be financially responsible for the cost of shipping the item back to the online retailer. This can be costly if the item is oversized and could require pricy insurance if the item is expensive. Online shoppers who have concerns about the return policy for an online retailer should carefully review these policies and inquire if they have any questions about the process before making a purchase.

Misleading Product Descriptions
Receiving goods or services which do not match the advertiser’s description. This may include product descriptions which are intentionally or unintentionally ambiguous. The concern in this situation is that the shopper will purchase the wrong item or an item which is not as described by the online retailer and the buyer will have difficulty returning the item if necessary.

Counterfeit, Damaged or Stolen Goods
This is detrimental to the consumer in many ways, the most obvious of which is being landed with a substandard product. However, it is also possible for the customer to put their own health at risk by purchasing an item which is simply dangerous.Counterfeit drugs can cause damage either by containing harmful ingredients or by simply not containing any active ingredients at all, leading individuals to believe they are being treated when they aren’t.

Right Wineglasses For The Right Wine Drinking

Wine glasses come in all shapes, sizes and styles, and different varietals are best served in specific types of glasses. Here is how to identify which glasses are right for your wine drinking preferences.

Types of Wine Glasses Chart

Types of Wine Glasses Chart1

 

Red Wine – always served in large glasses, red wines require more air exposure than their white counterparts in order to perform at their peak. Wide-bowled glasses enable you to get the full effect of the aromatics at play when inhaling a red wine’s bouquet — wine speak for scent.

Bordeaux glasses are tall but not overly wide, which thrusts the wine toward the back of the mouth. These glasses are recommended for full-bodied reds like cabernet and merlot.

riedel-vinum-bordeaux-glasses-set-of-2Riedel Vinum Bordeaux Glasses – Set of 2, $54.95 (williams-sonoma.com)

Burgundy glasses are shorter and wider, pushing light and medium-bodied reds like pinot noir toward the front of the tongue where their flavors can be more fully appreciated. A Burgundy glass is also called balloon glass.
Zalto Denk'Art Burgundy Glass
Zalto Denk’Art Burgundy Glass, $65.00 (wineenthusiast.com)

White Wine When it comes to whites, keeping the wine chilled is essential. Thus, white wine glasses tend to have much narrower bowls than red glasses. White wine glasses are smaller and narrower to keep the wine cooler and focus the limited aromatics from a cold glass all toward your nose. Unlike reds, glasses for white wines can usually be chosen based on age. Mature whites do best in straight, tall glasses that direct the wine to the back of the tongue. Younger whites, on the other hand, are better enjoyed through wider bowls, allowing for the wine’s sweetness to hit the tip of the tongue.

Enoteca White Wine GlassEnoteca White Wine Glass, $24.95 (crateandbarrel.com)

Dessert Wine – Dessert wines like port, madeira and sherry are super concentrated and usually quite sweet, necessitating small serving sizes. Using a small glass with an inward taper allows for an even more intense concentration of the wine’s aromas inside the glass.

Champagnes / Sparkling Wine Champagnes and sparkling wines are best served in tall, narrow flutes that preserves the wine’s bubbles and pushes them up the glass creating a beautiful presentation.

Guys Should Know How To Choose The Right Lingerie For Her

“Buying lingerie requires precision and finesse,” says Lash Fary, author of Fabulous Gifts. “If you find something that fits her personality, she’ll feel sexy and beautiful, and she’ll act that way when she’s wearing it. But if you buy her something that doesn’t complement her sexuality, she’ll feel self-conscious, and her passion will be stifled.”

Different Fabrics, Different Looks and Feels

Silk – Silk is a natural fiber that we associate with luxury, comfort and softness. It hangs smoothly and feels amazing to the touch. Silk doesn’t stretch, so it works well in flowing babydolls, robes, and gowns. Silk is a natural fiber.

Lycra® Spandex – Used in many styles of lingerie, Lycra® Spandex is the ultimate body-hugging material. Used in many sexy styles of men’s underwear as well as women’s, it conforms to her body perfectly and gives support. Lycra® Spandex will stretch and spring back to its original shape.

Cotton – Cotton is a natural fiber used in many clothing types. In lingerie, cotton’s most common use is for underwear and in the panty-lining. This is important because cotton is a wicking fiber that allows her skin to breathe and stay cool & dry.

Nylon – Nylon is a synthetic fiber that holds its shape and size and is highly durable. Nylon apparel may be machine washed & dried and requires no ironing. Another name for nylon is Polymide.

Rayon – Rayon is very much like silk, but it is made with wood pulp or other vegetable matter. Rayon is a soft, breathable fabric that feels wonderful against the skin. It is not a highly durable fabric on its own, but when blended with other fabrics, its strength increases.

Vinyl – Many fetish lingerie and men’s wear is made of patent (shiny) vinyl. Vinyl allows lingerie and underwear makers to produce patent leather-look pieces at more affordable prices than genuine leather. The material is also more flexible and lighter-weight than leather.

Microfiber – Microfiber is made with extremely small fibers, smaller than silk even. This creates a lightweight fabric that is very breathable. Usually microfiber is made of polyester or nylon fibers. The fabric is known to be lightweight, breathable, soft, and smooth.

Latex – Latex is made with rubber and thus has rubber-like qualities. Used in some elastics to provide greater elasticity. Breaks down easily when exposed to sun and body moisture. Many are allergic to direct contact of latex on their body, for whom spandex is an alternative.

Find the right fabric and style to match her exact body type and tastes.
