Smell Before You Buy It

I made one of the biggest mistakes of my shopping life, I bought a perfume online and when I got it in the mail I almost threw up. The smell of the perfume was so vile I couldn’t believe that my favorite celebrity was actually getting paid to tell people to buy it. When I was online, I was looking at the different reviews of the perfumes and saw that the perfume I ordered from manalive had a lot of positive reviews and was also being used by many celebrities, even having a great review from the celebrity on my favorite television show.

I had my girlfriends over last night and I was telling them about the new perfume that I bought online and when I took it out to spray it, we gagged just from opening up the bottle.

An Inside Look at Modeling Agencies in Michigan

Modeling Agencies In Cincinnati | modelsFinding modeling agencies in michigan these days is very easy due to the growing local fashion industry. Although the state Michigan is most widely known for apples and automobiles, it is also slowly developing into a place for fashion and modeling. One of the things that has helped spark growth in these areas is the growing number of entertainment studios relocating there. Just like in many other states such as Georgia and Louisiana, Michigan is also fast becoming a primary location for shooting movies and television shows.

Along with providing much needed economic benefits to the state, these entertainment studios are also creating a large number of modeling opportunities. As a result of this, there have been quite a few new modeling agencies springing up in Michigan over the past two years.

Some of these agencies are specifically looking for models to hire as extras on movie sets. Although there are some cases where experience is required, most positions only require that applicants have the right measurements and show enthusiasm for wanting to get into the modeling field. A typical day on the set for most models starts very, very early in the morning. Although they may only be hired to appear in one scene, they are still required to be on the set for the entire day. The length of time can range from six to ten hours. The reason models are often required to remain on a movie set even when they are not in a scene, is just in case another model does not show up or there is a change in the script. The good news is that the model will be paid for all these additional hours. These is just of one of the many benefits of being a model.

Other type of assignments offered by modeling agencies in Michigan include appearances at large automobile trade shows and also print work for automobile ad campaigns.

Living on My Own and Paying for My Own Clothes

Vintageous RagsMoving out of my parent’s house has been great. It has been quite the learning experience, but it is one that I am happy that I am getting at my age. I am twenty years old and have been living on my own for the last year. One of the most difficult lessons I have had to learn is how to manage my money.

I have learned to buy cheap designer clothes instead of shopping at the stores that I used to shop at. I never realized how much money I made my mother spend on clothing for me before I had to start doing it for myself. I just picked the clothes that I wanted, my mother bought them and I wore them for a couple months and bought new stuff.

Now that I have to buy my own clothes, things are much different.
