A List of My Favorite Colognes

All of my favorite colognes have a unique personality, be they designer fragrances or otherwise. Your choices when it comes to fragrances is innumerable. There is everything from spicy scents to musky scents to fresh scented aromas, all of which I enjoy immensely. With that said, here are some of my absolute favorites.

Burberry Touch by Burberry

This brand is famous for its coats and other articles of clothing. I consider this to be a classic fragrance, and the scent uses both nutmeg and vanilla to produce a bit of a musky scent. A special, lasting cologne, this product is a quintessential Burberry fragrance.

Obsession by Calvin Klein

A classic, masculine fragrance, Obsession by Calvin Klein is one of my favorite colognes of all time. This designer fragrance is considered a classic, and stands on its own when it comes to overall product appeal that continues to do well year after year. A somewhat intense fragrance, Obsession by Calvin Klein has a scent that is perfect for anyone who wants to exude masculinity.

Bvlgari BlackĀ 
Another winning cologne from the well-respected Bvlgari brand. Bvlgari Black has worldwide popularity that combines juniper, sandalwood and cedar to product a simple but alluring scent. This is among the best "casual" colognes and deserves a serious try.

You can buy any of these colognes at discount online fragrance stores like However, just because these colognes are my favorite, it doesn't mean you should restrict yourself to these products. Fragrances are a very personal thing, so it's important to find the cologne that you like the best. As a general rule, you should avoid fragrances that emit scents you are not initially attracted to. Also, it's good to keep in mind that most colognes will smell a bit different when applied to your skin. For every day use, try the lighter scents as this may be deemed more appropriate for office and work environments.

Using Deluxe Coupon Codes for Cheaper Checks

Does your business print a lot of checks? If so, there are certain things you should be doing to make sure you're making the most of this opportunity to promote your business and cut costs. You may think all checking products are the same, and it doesn't matter much which checking company you buy your checks from. But nothing could actually be further from the truth.


Your checks actually present an opportunity for you to promote your business. This can be done by purchasing impressive checks with artwork on it. Even more so, you can make a good impression by adding your logo and your slogan on your check as well. This looks a lot better than generic checks and really sets your business apart from others. If your business can afford it, custom checks from Deluxe are a great option to consider.

Your purchasing decisions related to checking products can also raise the efficiency of your business. Many businesses today still order manual checks, but this is a really inefficient way to do business. A much better idea is to buy laser checks from companies like Deluxe. Such checks will be compatible with your accounting software, making it a very simple matter to print your checks straight from your program. This can save your employees a lot of time, thus saving your business money.

Lastly, there are high-security checks that you can purchase to reduce fraud. These checks use special technology to ensure that the chances of check fraud are minimized. The extra cost for such products may not be worth it for everyone, but if you are involved in a line of work where check fraud is rampant, high-security checks are good insurance against things going wrong.

If you buy checks from well-known companies like Deluxe, they won't necessarily be cheap. That's why I recommend using Deluxe coupon codes to ensure you get the best price possible. It's also a good idea to buy as many checks as you can at once, as this usually brings down the price as well. It's not uncommon to get 10% or more off your order if you use the right coupons. Use the following link to get coupons for Deluxe Checks.

Many people view checks as commodities, but hopefully this article has convinced you otherwise. Using the correct approach, checks can be marketing tools. They can also help reduce fraud, and help raise the productivity of your accounting office.

Some Good Dating Tips

Every once in a while, I read dating tips just to give myself new ideas on how to approach dating. Not long ago, I found this article on women's health mag. It is a good read and I highly recommend that you check it out. Here are some of the tips in the article that I found especially helpful.


1. Don't Play it Cool

To this day, I still see many women who think that playing "hard to get" is a good dating strategy. In most cases, it is not. According to the article, being kind and responsive is a much better tactic that most men prefer and appreciate. So if you're in the habit of being cold on first dates, you should rethink your strategy and practice being warmer on your first encounters. It could make a huge difference in how people respond to you.

2. Don't Ask Your Friends About Your Date Until You Know Them

There is a danger is showing pictures of your new love interest to friends too soon, since their opinions could color your own. Instead, it's a good idea to get to know the other person, and form your own opinion before getting feedback from friends. That way, any opinions your friends express are less likely to sway your opinion too much.

3. Choose the right dating site

Some dating sites are geared toward marriage, others for a quick hookup. Make sure you're using the right dating site if you want to connect with the right people.

If you are taking the "one size fits all" approach to online dating, a good, general dating site to consider is (if you don't mind paying a monthly fee) and Okcupid (if you want to use a free dating site). Of the two, I find to be a much better site. While it does cost money, you can try the site using a free trial first, which is currently available from this page on

If you choose to use Okcupid instead, just be aware you are using a site geared toward people who love freebies. This could have implications on the type of people you meet, and the kind of dates you will go on.

A Review - Still the Best

One of the first dating sites I used was It was an easy site to understand, and offered a lot of great features. The search function is very powerful and allows you to quickly drill down and find the type of people you are interested in. These days, they offer quite a few matchmaking features as well. Although they probably aren't as good as eHarmony's matchmaking system, they still offer some guidance for people who don't always have the time to find matches on their own.

Something that I always like about was that their pricing is fairly reasonable. They are a bit more pricey than the cheapest dating sites, but on the whole, their monthly fee is still on the lower end, especially compared to site like eHarmony. Depending on the plan you choose, your monthly rate can be less than $20. That's pretty cheap for a site that could potentially find you everlasting love.

But make no mistake, using a site like does take effort and time. You should abandon any notion that online dating is an easy way to find a date. It may be an easy way to gain access to hundreds or even thousands of single individual in your area, but you still have to get to know those people and form a connection before you can expect to go out with anyone. This means spending time on the site, maybe even hours every day, to become part of the community and interact with as many people as possible.

If you don't feel like diving into online dating head first, you can open up a free account. This will allow you to create a profile and search members, but will limit your ability to communicate with them. Alternatively, you could try the free trial (which I also mentioned in my last dating article). To get your Match free trial, just go to This allows you to use the site and all its features, but unfortunately, it only allows you to do this for three days. However, I still think that people who are new to online dating, might be best served if they used the free trial offer and get a taste of what online dating is like. Make sure you make the most of your free trial and interact with as many people as you can, since that is the only way to know for sure how well you might fit in with the people on a given site.

Do Amusement Arcades Still Have a Place?

I remember when I was growing up in the 80s and 90s, amusement arcades were highly popular. These were places where you could find rows and rows of arcade games, all of which can be played for just 25 cents. At that time, hotels, movie theaters, restaurants, and other places where people would gather carried arcade games as well. Especially popular were games like Pac-Man and later on, Mortal Kombat, among others.


Over the years however, I've seen the number of amusement arcades dwindling. The main reason for this, I believe, is that with today's console games like Xbox and Playstation allow gamers to have just as engaging an experience with games they play at home. Moreover, many games today last many hours, and at arcades, the games tend to be over much quicker. This probably ends up feeling a bit underwhelming to gamers who are used to having an engaging experience last a long time.

So do amusement arcades still have a place? I believe they do, and depending on the environment, they can still be quite fun. Many people have incorporated arcade style games with bars, and this is a great idea, as it gives people something to do while enjoying their favorite games.

But for most people, I believe investing in a good console and playing games at home with friends can be just as much fun. If you own a console, you can now rent as many games as you want by using a service known as Gamefly. This service will make it possible for you to rent games and have them delivered to your address. Gamefly memberships start at $14.95 per month, but you can try out the service for free. Just use this Gamefly Free Trial offer from Free Trial Spot if you're interested in taking advantage of this opportunity. You can rent the latest PS4 games as well as other top new video game releases.

As of this writing Gamefly has over 8000 titles available for rent. I expect this number to keep rising as Gamefly adds more and more video games in the future.

Why You Should Recycle Ink


Recycling Ink is good for the environment, as it prevents plastic and metal(aluminum) from ending up in landfills. You can recycle ink at many different places, but the easiest is to just turn it in at Staples before buying a new cartridge. Doing this can save you $2.00 on your new cartridge.

Some people even take things a step further and reuse their cartridges before recycling them. This is done by getting the ink refilled, either by doing it yourself or by taking it to a retailer who will refill your cartridge for you. Two retailers that refill ink are Walgreens and Costco, and it typically costs around $8.00 - $12.00. Before making a trip to these stores, however, you'll want to call or visit their website to make sure they can in fact refill your cartridge, since these stores will only refill ink for certain printer cartridges. Costco's ink refilling service is what I'd recommend, since it is highly reviewed by PC World.

A second option is to buy remanufactured cartridges, which are essentially recycled cartridges that have been refilled. The best ones I've found are available from Inkfarm. By using a Inkfarm coupon code from sites like, you can often get remanufactured ink cartridges for as little as $15, which is not much more that what you'd pay to get a cartridge refilled. Even if you don't buy remanufactured cartridges, using coupons is the best way to ensure that you get the best deals on ink cartridges.

Even if you reuse your cartridges, at a certain point, the components will go bad and you will need to buy a new cartridge. I recommend refilling ink no more than twice before recycling your cartridge. Recycling ink is an essential part of ensuring a sustainable future, and I hope you therefore decide to reuse your cartridges or start buying remanufactured cartridges to do your part to help conserve natural resources like water, oil, and minerals.

Playing Poker: Your Options in the Modern Age

I wrote an article earlier about arcade games, which you can read about here. But one type of gaming I didn't talk about were casino games, and more specifically, poker and slots. If you walk into a casino in Vegas or even at a local casinos (if you have any in your area), you'll quickly see that slots machines greatly outnumber every other type of game available. In fact, the vast majority of the floor space will be devoted to slot machines, even when you factor in bar space, and space dedicated to larger games like craps and blackjack. The other hugely popular game is of course poker, and you'll typically find that poker rooms are very large and crowded.


So obviously, if you enjoy playing slots or poker, going to any physical casino is clearly the easiest way to play the game. One problem with this, however, is that not everyone lives close to a casino. And even when they do, they may not always feel like getting in their car and taking a drive, just to play a game. This is where online slots come in.

At the outset, you should be aware that you can play slots or poker in two different ways. First, you can play purely for fun, and if you choose this option, you will be betting using fake credits that cannot be exchanged for real money. The other option, of course, is to play for real money. This becomes a bit more complicated, as you need to find a way to fund your account. The easiest method for doing that as of this writing is to simply buy some bitcoin and transfer money into your account. By doing so, you'll be able to play bitcoin poker or slots almost immediately. (See a list of current bitcoin and dogecoin poker casinos at Funding with bitcoin beats other methods of funding your account because it is a lot quicker and more convenient, for reasons that I won't go to in this article. That said, if you are interested in learning more about bitcoin, there are plenty of articles available online, as well as videos on the subject on Youtube. You'll even find some online courses on bitcoin if you really want to explore this subject in depth.
