When Estée Lauder was trying to launch her Youth-Dew bath oil in Europe, the manager of the department store Galeries Lafayette in Paris was not convinced that it would sell. When she accidently spilled Youth-Dew on the floor, the customers clamoured to ask how they could buy the scent, and the manager capitulated and agreed to stock the product.

Did you know that the juice from a Petit Bouschet grape is blood red? Created in 1824 by French grape breeder Louis Bouschet, this grape saw a surge of plantings in the late 19th century as France used it to add color to blends made from hybrid grapes and other high yielding varieties.
A little different of a #tbt
this week. Prior to moving up to the Chicago area and diving into flight training, my life looked very very different. I was heavily involved in Choir and music. Just like aviation, music has been a part of my life since I was a kid. I can play all sorts of instruments, read music, and I love singing. At #Pfeiffer
, I had the incredible opportunity to go on a choir tour and perform in several really awesome concerts. I learned so much during that time, some of which I can actually apply to flying. The last quarter of the year always makes me miss performing in and seeing holiday concerts. You'd think that living in one of the country's largest cities, I would've maintained this artsy side of me. Unfortunately, I haven't. I miss it so so much! It has become a goal of mine to see something..a concert or a theatrical performance by the end of 2018!
Disclaimer: the last photo is not of something I performed in, but of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra. Our whole choir went to see them perform. So so good!

Buenas noches amig@s! Les quiero seguir contando sobre el funcionamiento de Instagram 😬Como bien dijimos, los INTERESES es el primero de los tres pilares básicos del algoritmo de instagram.
El otro pilar es CONTINUIDAD: Cuando fue tu ultimo post en Instagram? El nuevo algoritmo de Instagram PRIORIZA los post RECIENTES (muy difícilmente veas post de hace mas de una semana atrás)
Parece que a Instagram le importa mucho cuándo posteas en vez de su interacción o su contenido ⚠️ Esto fue a raiz de que en las ultimas fiestas la gente se quejó ya que seguian viendo fotos de Navidad cuando ya habia pasado año nuevo 😧 #funfact
Espero que disfrutes de esta info y que te sirva para aplicarlo a tus redes! 🍀 EXITOS y nos vemos pronto 💋

to when we visited @la_trappe_trappist
in Tilburg NL 🇳🇱 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Most #Trappist
abbeys are very closed off to the public to safeguard the privacy and way of life of the monks who live, work and pray there. La Trappe, however, allows for tours through the actual brewery with a video look behind the scenes at the life of the monks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After the tour we did a four beer tasting where we tried the #Blond
, and #Quad
each unique and enjoyable while having a clove undertone that ties them together nicely with can be attributed to the use of Belgian yeast. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We ended our tasting with a bottle of their #OakAged
Quad. You could taste the difference the aging and oak had on the beer making it softer with a more mocha like flavour. We had to take a bottle home to add to our cellar. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #FunFact
their bottle opener is the first we’ve found that doesn’t bend bottle caps. Really useful for our bottle cap collection! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #THT #SpecialBeer #TrappistBeer #AbbeyBeer #CraftBeer #DrinkCraft #BeerTour #BreweryTour #brew #BeerCraft #beerenthusiast #beertasting #beerstagram #instabeer #cheers
If you’re looking for a good book to dive into, look no further than "Krik Krak", written by the award-winning Haitian author, #EdwidgeDanticat
. Using language that is almost lyrical, through fictional characters, Danticat offers a glimpse into the lives of ordinary Haitians. You’ll find that the stories weave into one another in a way that invites you to keep reading, and that the book is truly a great read.
: "Krik" is what we say before telling a joke or an unbelievable story—as if to say "guess what?", to which listeners respond "krak", to indicate that they are ready to hear the tale.
