The Aura. The colours present in an aura can range from a dirty, muddy brown to a glorious, translucent white, depending on the individual`s character.

The aura is an invisible body of light that surrounds all living things. Just as no two people are identical, so no two aura are alike. The colors present can range from a dirty, muddy brown to a glorious, translucent white, depending on the individual`s character.

Until the early years of the last century they were seen only by psychics, but in 1908 Dr. Walter J. Kilner discovered that he could see them by looking through a screen of Dicyanin. This had the effect of making someone who looked through it temporarily short-sighted, and thus more able to see the radiation present in the ultra-violet part of the spectrum. In 1911 he published a book called "The Human Atmosphere". A revised edition was published in 1920 as "The Human Aura" and is still readily available.

Dr. Kilner claimed no psychic powers and insisted that anyone could see the aura. It is possible to buy "aura goggles" and see the auras the way Dr. Kilner did. Unfortunately some people with vision problems such as colour-blindness and extreme long sightedness can not see it.

In 1939 Semyon Davidovich Kirlian accidentally discovered what is now known as Kirlian photography. If you place your finger (or any other part of your body) in a Kirlian device, the resulting photograph will show an array of colors around your finger.

One fascinating aspect of these photographs is that pictures of a diseased leaf who a completely different type of aura to that of a healthy leaf. This raises the possibility of aura healing.

A 19th century invention, Schlieran photography, originally invented to detect flaws in glass, shows a distinct aura around living things.

Researchers at the City University in London used it to research convection currents around the human body. Their report says: "Starting at the soles of the feet, the air layer moves slowly upward over the body. At the groin and under the armpits it reverses direction briefly. At the shoulders it spurts upward to dissipate in a feathryplume about five inches above the head."

So now religious artists, psychics and scientists all claim they have halos!

The human aura consists of a number of layers, the etheric double, the inner aura and the outer aura.


This is a virtually invisible, slightly greyish line that covers the entire body like a body sock. This aura is generally about 1/16" wide, though it can occasionally be as wide as half an inch. At first it appears to be simply a space between the body and the aura, but a closer examination shows that it is actually a very fine mesh.


This is the brightest part of the aura and extends between two and four inches beyond the etheric double. The aura consists of one main color, assisted by several minor colors. The texture of the inner aura varies between fine and course, depending on the spiritual quality of the individual.

Generally speaking, the finer the texture, the better. The entire inner aura seems to move and swirl in different directions.


The outer aura is oval in shape and encircles the inner like a cocoon. It extends some ten to eighteen inches beyond the inner aura. It is larger around the head and shoulders than at the feet, so can appear to be egg shaped. This aura is more amorphous than the inner aura, but is still in constant motion. It is generally seen as an unclear haze, and often it is impossible to see exactly where it ends. The colors are in pastel shades, rather than the bright colors of the inner aura.

The etheric double, Inner Aura and Outer Aura are generally regarded as representing the complete aura and are the way we are Seeing The Aura.

Some psychics though, claim that they can see two additional layers: The Higher Mental Aura and the Spiritual Aura.

The Higher Mental Aura apparently consists of a magnificent yellow color, with a strange luminescent, ethereal glow. This is probably the halo that surrounds the paintings of saints.

The Spiritual Aura is a clear, colorless light, but one of such purity that it radiates goodness and peace. Energies of yellow light leave it in all directions. Sometimes it is surrounded by a layer of pale blue light.

The Four Subtle Energy Bodies of the Aura

Beyond the physical body are the subtle energy bodies and the uninhibited flow of this subtle energy maintains the physical body. Therefore, knowledge of the extended human energy field - your Aura and Chakras - is imperative for improving your health and well-being. These four subtle energy bodies of consciousness is what defines your personality, your perception, your direction in life, and your soul's expression and are known as the Causal or Spiritual, the Mental, the Emotional and the Etheric Bodies.
The Causal or Spiritual Body

The Auric Body is the body of consciousness and awareness and the Auric Layer is the representation of the chakra interacting in the aura.

The Spiritual Body (the first of the subtle energy bodies) also known as the Causal Body is a body of consciousness associated with your true spiritual path and direction in life. It is your highest potential and reflects your ability to manifest your souls true potential here on earth.

The essence of your soul's reality is the expression "to be" and this ultimately is the reason for your existence. It has the highest vibration of the auric bodies and depending on the development of your spiritual nature, this body can emanate up to three feet from the physical body.

It appears as a whitish glow and contains your true spiritual essence.
"Casual consciousness deals with the essence of a subject while the mental level studies the subject's detail. The casual body deals with the essence of substance and the true causes behind the illusion of appearance... The causal plane is a world of realities... deals with essence and underlying nature of things in question. Healing at this level is more powerful than the mental body." (Gerber)
The Mental Body

The Spiritual body (the second of the subtle energy bodies) is the blueprint to your spiritual potential. However, it requires the creation of patterns of energy for this potential to be expressed and experienced. These patterns of energy are stored in the Mental body as thoughts - both conscious and sub-conscious.

The patterns stored within the mental body creates the character framework for the soul to project its personality. The "self" manifests and expresses concrete intellect through the mental body.

This body appears as a golden yellow light radiating out and around the head and shoulders and extending around the whole body. It expands and becomes brighter when its owner is concentrating on mental processes.

Extending up to twelve inches from the body, the mental body filtrates thoughts down to the emotional body which reacts to the thoughts with an emotional association be it love, fear, happiness, anger, and so forth. A balanced mental body will provide an individual with clarity and direction.
The Emotional or Astral Body

The Emotional Body (the third of the subtle energy bodies) is more fluid and of a higher vibration than the etheric body. It appears as colored clouds in continual motion, reflecting the quality and intensity of the emotions. This is the part of you that likes to "jump out" in times of trauma and shock, to produce a feeling of emotional numbness, which will allow you to slowly integrate the knowledge of the shock in your own way.

The Emotional body, which is also known as the Astral body, is the seat of your emotions. It is the bridge between the mind and the physical body. Your emotional energy governs your fears and hopes, loves and pains. It governs the extent and nature of one's personality expression upon the physical plane.

This body is the projection of your longings, moods, feelings, appetites, and fears. The emotional "self" is the expression of your mental "self" thus the emotional body is the expression of the mental body.

The energy of the emotional body impacts the Etheric body, which in turn impacts the physical body. Consequently emotional blockages prevent the manifestation of clarity of thought and direction in the physical body.
The Etheric Body

The Etheric Body (the fourth of the subtle energy bodies) appears as a bluish-grey colour or shadow, extending approximately one inch from the physical body. It is responsible for the transfer of life energy or vitality from the universal energy field to the physical body.

The Etheric body is a body of Etheric or subtle matter which furnishes the basic blue print for the physical body. Every cell in the physical body has an etheric counterpart.

This body also serves as a filtration system. Universal life force energy filters down through the Spiritual, Mental, Emotional and Etheric Bodies into the physical body. The Etheric Body is the interface between the physical body and the other subtle bodies of the Aura.

When the flow of this energy is disrupted, the physical body is affected and if this imbalance is not corrected, illness and dis-ease can manifest in the physical body. There is a synergistic relationship between each subtle body of the aura.

Other than the four subtle energy bodies the Aura also has seven distinct layers of energy that are intimately connected to what is known as the Chakra System which is located along the spine.

and Dating Tips for Introverts
These are the right and wrong ways to show the object of your affection that you're interested in getting more personal:
  • turn away
  • scan the room
  • give a phony smile Do
  • lean in toward the object of your desire
  • give a genuine smile
  • focus your eyes on your subject
  • tilt the head to the side

back to the top

Is S/he Interested?
A man who is interested will ...
... hold your glance a little longer
... make eye contact, look away, then glance again in your direction. It's a sign that he wants to get to know you better.
... touch your arm, hand or shoulder lightly as you talk. The message is "I'm friendly."
... smooth his clothing or run a hand through his hair, which says, "I want to look good for you."
... lean in toward you.
... fondle a chain or cigarette. This is a sign that he wants more intimate contact.
... swagger and flex his muscles. This age-old display of masculinity is not much different than a peacock displaying his tail feathers!
... speak low so only you can hear, thus inviting you into his space and making the conversation exclusive between the two of you.
back to the top

A woman who is interested will ...
... give a sidelong glance. In this coy, flirtatious gesture, the woman stares boldly while lowering the head and tilting it away, giving the message, "I am shy, yet bold."
... wink!
... run a hand over her exposed leg, indicating that more intimate contact is welcome.
... slip a shoe off and dangle it from the toes -- or remove an earring. These "undressing" signals are very suggestive and inviting.
... touch his thigh or knee. The length of time she allows it to rest there heightens the intensity of desire. Rubbing it back and forth provides a signal that's as clear as it gets.
back to the top

Men and women do this upon meeting. When it is accompanied by a smile, it says, "I'm a friendly person." Tilting the head while listening shows you are very interested. But a backward head tilt says, "I'm superior."
Shoulders: The shrug, raising one's shoulders, tilting the head to the side and extending the palms, says, "I give up." It's a way to show you are harmless and approachable.
Pigeon Toes: While most people don't look at the feet, standing with toes pointing inward is an inviting gesture. It's the bottom half's counterpart to the shrug.
More signals from her: These common body signals are directed toward a guy a woman find attractive.
  • parting her lips and licking them
  • stroking and flicking her hair
  • massaging her head and neck
  • crossing and uncrossing her legs
  • pointing a knee in his direction
More signals from him: These common body signs are directed toward a woman a guy finds attractive.
  • massaging his outer thigh
  • narrowing his eyes while he is talking to her
  • hooking his thumb in his belt loops
  • adjusting his cuffs, flicking dust from his jacket or smoothing his hair
  • stroking the jaw
  • rolling a glass or pen between his palms
back to the top

Do What I Do: unlike mirroring , which is a sitting or standing posture, isopraxism is "same behavior" -- walking in the same way, eating at the same speed or taking a sip of your drink together.
Eyelashes: This gesture is a dead giveaway that the hormones are racing. When the body is aroused, lashes flutter faster than a hummingbird's wings. Mascara and false eyelashes enhance this signal, making it impossible for a man to miss.
Self-Touching: When people are unsure of themselves in a social setting, they often wrap their arms around the torso, hugging themselves. This gesture controls anxiety. Likewise, when someone receives a romantic cue, he or she will often touch an earlobe or rub an arm, leg or the chest area.
The Smile: A simple, closed mouth smile is a courtesy and nothing more. An upper smile -- where the top teeth show -- is an invitation. An open smile -- where both top and bottom teeth show and the eyes crinkle -- is an out-and-out invitation to get sociable.
back to the top

The Sloucher: Cuddling into a chair shows a relaxed attitude toward life. Slouchers are really saying, "I want to be held."
The Sprawler: The sprawler is an uninhibited lover who has few hangups about sex. When sprawlers sit, they take up the whole chair with their bodies inviting you in to their party.
The Ramrod: This is someone who sits at attention, back straight, knees together and feet planted firmly on the floor. If you're looking for someone who's a free spirit, look elsewhere.
The Retreater: Retreaters back into a chair as far as they can, pulling their legs back underneath them. This says, "You're going to have to work hard to make me enjoy this."
The Leg Crosser: With legs crossed and knees grasped firmly, the leg crosser is saying, "I need some convincing before this goes any further." While they may not be shy or uninterested in sex, leg crossers simply need a little more time before making a decision.
The Squirmer: People who have trouble sitting in one position for any length of time are usually athletic paramours. They clutch, squeeze and changes positions while in bed. Making love becomes a sporting event -- with everyone in the game a winner!
The Rebel: A rebel will sit in an unconventional way -- facing backwards, perching on an armrest, perhaps with a foot tucked underneath or better yet on a cozy beanbag chair. These people often look for new and unusual places for lovemaking.
back to the top

The Cold Shoulder: After eye contact is made, one party turns his or her back on the other. This shutting-off gestures says, "I'm not interested."
The Cut-Off: Using a more direct approach, a woman comes up to a man face-to-face. If he turns away so he is now sideways to her, the message is, "Go away." It's the same story if this happens when a man approaches a woman.
No Reaction: If you encounter a blank stare, tight lips, no smile, fluttering eyelids or fidgeting, you can bet there's no interest. The message is loud and clear, "Move on." Yet amazingly, some men and women find that attitude challenging. Instead of using their energy on someone else who might really care, they banter away trying to soften the stony face. Don't bother. [Nancy's note: They are trained by the stony indifference of a parent to think this is love.]
Freezing: This can be different than no reaction. Sometimes a likely love interest is so overwhelmed with the new attention that he or she remains immobile. Or, perhaps, there really is no interest. But how can you tell the difference? If you receive a smile,it's usually a good sign.
Tense Lips: This is a sign of displeasure. It's a natural sign of distaste and a negative social cue. If a woman's lips are pursed when a man approaches -- and she may even bite her lower lip -- the message is "back off."
back to the top

Sending signals with your body language can be much more powerful than the spoken word.
  • Make eye contact. A longing look at the right moment that captures the attention of the other person should cause the heart to skip a beat. It says, "I've noticed you and I like what I see."
  • Strike a pose. But make sure your posture is open and tells the other person you're available. Turn your body completely in the direction of your target.
  • Smooth your hair. This is a signal that you want to look good for the person you are interested in. Do it when you know that person is looking your way. However, this gesture should not be overdone or you will appear vain and self-absorbed.
  • Toy with your jewelry. If you're a woman, this is a sensuous way to tell a stranger that you're ready for some fun and adventure -- and that you wouldn't mind some company!
  • Smile! There's nothing more devastatingly attractive than a friendly smile with twinkling eyes If the smile is returned, you're well on your way to romance.
  • I know of another way to tell if a man or woman is interested...their pupils. If the pupils are dilated then that person is saying they like what they see. If the pupils are very small then they would like to shut you out. All of this is true for me except if the person wears glasses or the lighting is very bright. 

When it comes to love and romance, actions speak louder than words. While it may take only a few seconds to size up a person, those few seconds count when you are trying to make a positive first impression on someone from the opposite sex. In these kinds of situations, body language kicks in from the start.
Both men and women send out signals. The trick is knowing how to recognize and then interpret those signals. Women seem to have a better understanding of how their signals affect others. Unfortunately, not all men are quite as good at observing what those signals are, and may be even worse at responding to them. The problem is that sometimes men (and women) either miss the signals or get them confused.

Releasing Endorphins

A smile is something that radiates from within, telling the other person a lot about your inner feelings. You can’t fake a sincere smile, which is probably why the opposite sex takes it as a genuine show of interest. If your top and bottom teeth show when you smile, you are letting the other person know that you really do want to get sociable. Research tells us that the body releases endorphins when we smile. So not only does smiling make you feel good, it makes the other person feel good, too. A true smile gets the person to trust you as well.

Flirting Poses or Gestures

When it comes to love and romance, body language actions speak louder than words.
When it comes to love and romance, body language actions speak louder than words.
A woman who gives a man a lingering look is telling him that she is interested and would like to get to know him better. She may also hold a man’s gaze briefly, turning her body toward him. A slow turn of the head may be perceived by a man as an invitation to come closer.
Even though women are more apt to use body language gestures to attract attention, men also exhibit certain postures when flirting. If a man sees a woman he finds attractive, he may try to make himself appear taller and stronger. While some men put their hands on their hips or thumbs in their belt loops in an effort to appear macho, other men may be subtler and do things like running a hand through their hair or playing with their ties.
Body position is frequently a clue indicating romantic interest. The other person may either face you directly, or angle his or her body in your direction if interested. Holding the palms of the hands open and upright is another sign that the person is inviting more attention from you. If you are a man, a woman sitting with legs slightly apart may be a signal for you to make a move, especially if she points a knee in your direction. You’ve probably made it to first base if her legs are crossed and she has a foot pointed at you.

Getting Physical

A light touch on the back, shoulder or arm may seem innocent at first, but could mean that the person wants to touch you more. When a man does this he may be telling you that he is friendly, but would like to get more personal.
Usually, when a man is attracted to a woman, he can’t resist touching her. A woman may also touch a man’s knee or thigh as an expression of interest. If she wants to get more suggestive, she may remove an earring, or slip off a shoe and dangle it from her toes.
Men should know that when a woman’s eyelashes flutter, you’ve got her hormones all stirred up. Another romantic cue is if she touches an earlobe or rubs one of her arms or legs. Someone mimicking your body language is probably the most obvious sign of true interest. Although mimicking is often a subconscious behavior, as the other person might not even realize that he or she is copying your behavior, it generally is a natural instinct when we try to get closer to someone whom we admire.

The Single Signals - Female Body Language

There are literally dozens of ways that a woman uses her body language to communicate her interest and attraction to a man. Reading female body language can be simple or complex but the real trick is recognising clusters and progressions.
The images shown on this page are some of the most reliable individual signals. However, the use of a single signal by a woman does not indicate total attraction but is rather an indicator of interest. As the individual signals become more frequent, clustered and obvious, the more interested (or desperate) is the woman. For example it's quite common for woman in a nightclub to be subtle in her signalling early in the evening but as the night progresses and she still hasn't attracted a man these signals can become increasingly obvious.
Contrary to what you may have read elsewhere about reading female body language, there is no sure-fire way of perfectly understanding these courtship gestures every time. Women may project them consciously (and sometimes just for sport), or they may be totally unaware of what their bodies are saying. A woman may even show physical interest through her body language because she subconsciously wants to be desired while actually rejecting a suitor because she is consciously aware that she is married. This is self reassurance behaviour.
Reading female body language also requires a high degree of honesty on the part of the man. Many men overreact to simple signals or, because of their desire to be successful, actually see signals that are not really there. One simple and fantastic piece of advice when reading female body language is to take it nice and easy. If her signals are subtle and understated then a man's responses should be just as balanced. If hers fade away then her interest has been lost - if they increase then it's safe for a man to respond in equal measure.
However, before exploring the progression of signals it is vital to be able to recognise some of the basics. For most men "seeing" even the most simple of signals can be challenge. Fear of rejection is the reason. This page should help with reading female body language.
The Head / Hair Toss: The human body is pretty hairless. Other than a gene manipulated cat and near extinct shrew; there are no other mamals that are as hairless as humans. (We don't include fish, reptiles or birds in this analogy.) Long, flowing hair has always been a sign of feminine health and thus sexuality and child bearing ability. By tossing her hair a woman is essentially saying: "look at me and my suitability. I am happy, confident and very healthy!" Long hair is feminine while short hair is masculine. If this wasn't the case why do so many (male) lesbians shave their hair as a statement?
Reading Female Body Language - Hair Toss
Reading Female Body Language - Lip Nibble
The Lip Nibble: (left) Oh my God! Men love this body language signal. It's origins and the reasons why it works are still a mystery. There is nothing like the Lower Lip Nibble to subconsciously give a man an injection of pure of testosterone. The lower lip is gently gripped by the teeth and with sensual slowness allowed to slip away. Done well and without awareness this can drive a man to his knees - done badly it becomes a parody. Strangely, this is a powerful sex signal between women (lesbians) and is used by the submissive female to indicate interest in the dominant potential partner.
The Hair Flick:(right) Reading female body language has never been easier. For women, twirling or flicking their hair is a favourite flirting gesture. Why this has such an effect on men is a hotly debated subject. The ‘Definitive Book of Body Language’ (Allan and Barbara) allegedly claims that it allows a woman to expose her armpit and thus "waft" pheromones to the man. (Huh?) Another explanation is that it is a casual way of exposing her neck - a well known erogenous zone. Some researchers even claim it attracts attention to her "healthy" hair. We admit it - we just don't know. Still, it's a great signal to watch out for.
Reading Female Body Language - Hair Flick and Side Glance with Smile
Reading Female Body Language - Tilt and Smile
Tilt and Smile:(left) This is a classic and is perhaps the most common of flirting and attraction signals. It indicates a submissive, interested and alluring mood on the part of the woman doing it. Most importantly it is "shorthand" for: "I’ve noticed you and I like what I see. I can't look away so I’m sneaking another look. My Smile is to let you know I'm feeling good and want you to know it." Generally the gesture is quite quick and meant to attract attention. If the man doesn't get it after several attempts then the woman usually gives up on him as "just too stupid to mate with".
Reading Female Body Language - Toying With ...
Neck stroking: (right) The neck is one of a woman's most sensitive and erogenous zones and touching it will attract a man's attention. Why does this work? Well, apparently, men are attracted to soft smooth female skin and the neck is the most socially acceptable to display. Smooth skin is a reliable indicator of both youth and health - critical factors when a male is "hunting" a mate. The neck is also a very sensitive part of the female body and touching it stimulates a gentle, soothing and loving sensation. Try it for yourself by tilting your head to one side and gently stoking the exposed neck. Feels good doesn't it?
The Neck touch  / Stroke
Toying or Object Stroking: (above) Psychologists believe that people often transfer inner feelings to external objects. So by stroking the stem of a wine glass (for example) a woman is using female body language to say "stroke me". By running her a pen across her lips she is saying "kiss me". These female body language signals should not be confused with "agitation" gestures that indicate that the woman would rather be somewhere else. The difference is in the speed with which they are performed. Slow and sensual is good - fast and "jerky" is bad. Wine glasses, table ornaments, sun glasses and pens are common objects used for "toying".
Reading Female Body Language - Knee point
Knee Pointing: This signal is about interest and focus. By turning the knees and legs towards a man, a woman is using female body language to indicate the person in which she is currently interested - thus creating a personal space triangle. The outer legs also present a barrier to others who may intrude. Translated, this signal means: "You are the person I am focusing on." Legs and knees that point away are a bad sign - particularly if the knees are aiming at a door. In a sense they become a barrier to the nearby person and an invitation to others. The more leg exposed the more sexual the signal.
Reading Female Body Language - Self Stroking
The Vagina / Womb Gesture: To the right is a picture of a woman wearing an average pair of jeans and yet the way she has placed her hands is a powerful “turn-on” for some men. The reason is that her hands are creating a frame for her Vagina. Although sometimes mistaken for "male" gesture, her hands are actually "spelling-out" what's on her mind. Her female body language is actually saying: "This is the part of me that I want you to notice. I'm telling you that this area of my body is available for the right man!" It is a confident signal indicating aggressive sexual availability.
Reading Female Body Language - The Vagina
Self Stroking / Touching! (above) This is both subtle and obvious at the same time. Essentially it means: "I'm stroking and touching myself because I'd really like to be stroked and touched by you". Also, by touching herself in this way a woman draws a man's attention to those erogenous zones that she thinks are her best assets and will appeal to him. Thighs, neck and ankles are all favourites. It is fair to say that women are very aware of the way that this subconsciously affects men and will do it deliberately. Where it is subconscious it is a truly reliable indicator of a woman's feelings.
The Shoe Dangle: (left) Reading a female use of shoes and her feet as part of her body language could fill a book on its own. We may later dedicate an entire page to this form of subtle communication. The Shoe Dangle is a strong but subtle message to a man. Translated it says: “By half slipping off my shoe I'm indicating that I am relaxed, comfortable and may be willing to undress further." Also, for many men (even those that won't admit it), the female foot is (strangely) attractive. Women worldwide spend Billions of Dollars on footwear and pedicures and they do it for a reason!


Slow Eaters
Boghossian believes that those who dine slowly are wed to routines and are stubborn. They make a point of savoring their food, indicating that they make the most out of every experience. They’re also more likely to put themselves and their needs before anyone else’s. As she puts it, “they are the priority in their lives.”
Fast Eaters
Eating quickly shows a lack of balance when it comes to priorities. Those who finish food before everyone else tend to put other things before themselves. However, they’re also productive powerhouses and excel at finishing projects.

People Who Mix Foods
This type of person can take on a great deal of responsibilities efficiently, but might have trouble deciding what’s most important to accomplish. He or she can also have trouble concentrating on a particular task.
People Who Eat Foods One at a Time
“Task-oriented” and “methodical in approach” are the ways she describes people who eat this way. They’re less flexible when it comes to fitting into situations that deviate from what they’re used to.
Food Habits and Job Skills
Boghossian advises recruiters and hiring managers about what eating traits to look for depending on the job. “The goal of a recruiter is to know what skill sets are most critical to a given position, then seek those traits through an individual’s food habits,” she says. These food habits may provide recruiters some insight.
Cuts Meat All at Once
“Cutting meat [at once] displays an individual that is more methodical, strategic, and forward thinking,” she writes in her Web site’s advice column. This type of person is well-suited for positions that require logical thinking and precision. Fields such as engineering, accounting, or computer technology would be perfect fits.
Enjoys Trying New Foods
Those excited about sampling different cuisines would do well in creative positions because they’re willing to explore new paths and will be more likely to go against the grain in terms of ideas.
Asking questions about the menu is also indicative of an open-minded person. Watch out for people who pre-season their foods or don’t even glance at the menu before ordering—they’re more likely to be stubborn and less likely to embrace change.
What It Comes Down To
However, Boghossian is quick to point out that these attributes don’t speak to the character of the person. “You can’t single out one food habit as altogether negative; there are always pros and cons to every behavior,” she reasons. In other words, my love of blending foods and my mom’s abhorrence of said love doesn’t make either one of us a bad person—it just makes us different (and qualified for different jobs, apparently).




perfume and personality

Perfumes are as much a part of your fashion style as the accessories you choose. And like your fashion choices, the fragrance you choose says a lot about your personality.
Designer fragrances are like designer handbags, with different styles for day and night, summer and winter. And your perfume can say a lot about your mood.
It can take some time to find your "signature scent", but let's face it, shopping for the best perfume is lots of fun.
So How Do You Discover Your Signature Scent?
Although testing new perfumes first thing in the morning can sound a bit yuk, it's always best to try out perfumes when your skin is fresh and clean. And you've got to try them on your skin, not a test strip. The ingredients in fragrances react to the oils in our skin, and that is what gives them their unique qualities, so it's best to know how a perfume will smell on your skin not just immediately, but after a couple of hours too.
Spray a small amount of perfume on the inside of your arm, where your skin is particularly fine, and wait a few moments before you smell it, to let the alcohol settle and the fragrance develop. Don't rub the perfume, as you can "bruise" the delicate ingredients.
Perfume goes through three stages - top notes, made up of the essences you will first notice. Then the middle notes and finally the bottom notes.
There are 6 perfume categories:
Floral - Flowers are the dominant theme and florals tend to be light and feminine. Wear a floral scent when you're feeling feminine and girly.
Fruity - Imbued with the aroma of fresh fruits. Wear a fruity aroma for a fresh, "just picked from the vine" day.
Greens - Fresh, energetic and light fragrances, with a natural smell. Wear green scents on great-to-be-alive days.
Oceanic - Smells reminiscent of the sea, fresh, natural and light. Oceanic fragrances work well on the weekends when you're out and about.
Woody - Deep, lusty perfume with the aroma of bark, leaves and all things woody. Wear woody scents when you're feeling sensual and exotic. Great hot-date perfume!
Oriental - Intense, sexy and rich with the opulent smells of spices, musk, vanilla and heavy flowers. Wear Orientals when you want to be remembered long afterwards.
Fragrance Tips
Blends of floral and citrus-based fragrances are recommended for casual and daywear. Spicy, woody or warm amber-based fragrances are traditionally favorites for evening and special occasions.

Red people are usually optimistic and can’t stand monotony; they are rather restless and not at all introspective, so they may be unaware of their own shortcomings. They find it hard to be objective and may blame others for any mishaps. Quiet people with a preference for red may feel the need for the warmth, strength and life-giving qualities of the color, or they blanket their true feelings under a sober exterior.
