E-cigarette : A great way to beat the habit

Studies shows that smoking is still the number one preventable death, CNN reports that “443,000 Americans die from smoking-related illnesses every year, according to the U.S. Department of Health” and although many advocacy and drives have been done to help smokers to quit the habit, the urge to smoke is still greater.

I have been complaining about hubby’s smoking habit.  There are no days that I have been trying to educate him and lecture him about how smoking can affect his body and that it is bad for his health and even goes to the extreme of telling him that he has two little kids depending on him but I guess, even though he was that enthusiasm, he still could not kick the habit of smoking.

I don’t know what’s with that tobacco that many people couldn’t remove it on their system. I’ve tried it once in my high school years since many of my friends are doing it but I wouldn’t dare to try another stick because it makes me dizzy and i have the smell it leaves in my mouth and even in my clothes (Ooh, i’m very particular on the smell of my shirt)

Now, Vapourlites eCig introduce me with their starter kit, the best gift you can give for someone who wanted to beat the habit of smoking thus trying electronic cigarette as an alternative. As it mentioned, the tobacco flavor is very realistic and was designed  to mimic the taste of real tobacco blends.

The cartomizer produces vapour which give a realistic hit on your throat seems like replicating the feeling of smoking only without the smoke.  So, i guess if your only after the feeling of smoking, this e-cigarette is perfect for you. This products are manufactured in UK laboratories giving the assurance of high quality products.

The kit comes with a  HG7 Polymer Lithium battery, a USB charger and 2 Cartomizers which equivalents to 80 tobacco cigarettes. So, if your average consume of 6 a day, then you can use this for atleast 13 days which is more affordable than buying the real tobacco cigarettes and what is far more important is saving your lungs and body on possible future health problems and even death.

Well, the verdict would always be upon my husband and to you who are chain smokers, if you would accept the change whole heartedly, this alternative is a great way to ultimately beat the habit of smoking .  This is the time to regain your life and be healthy.

So far, it seems that his getting the hang on it.  I guess positive motivation can really work wonders.  To know more about Electronic cigarettes, you can always check Vapourlites.com  . Help save lives today, give a gift of life, LOL. (it’s funny but i’m not laughing since it’s a very serious matter. )

I always prefer shopping online and taking the advantages of Black Friday online sale since the collections are also endless and i get to save from fuel and effort of going through long lines but the best part is I can celebrate thanksgiving with my family since I believe that thanksgiving should really be giving thanks for the things you have.

The beauty of life #BeautyAsIAm

I might say that things are not in accordance with what I have wished and hoped for but nonetheless, I am very thankful that after all the trials and adversary, I am still holding on and looking proud as ever.

There are days that I feel I’m like a tiger, ready to grab all the opportunity that comes in my way. My head is up and high as if saying that I have the mighty power in my hand, ready to face anything and everything.

My life is definitely different 10 (ten) years ago.  Before, I used to be a simple working mom, juggling work and kids  but thankfully, blogging becomes part of my life and it was never been the same.  Blogging brought me many things, open a gateway for me to know more about myself and my passion in life. The once ugly duckling is now a full grown woman showing the world what she can do.

Although, I could not consider myself as a real fashionista nor a beuty, I have my own style and charm and the most important part is I know what I am capable of. We are all beautiful in our own way, “she’s just a pretty face” is an absurd word, for me having beauty is nothing if you don’t have the brains and you don’t know how to value the things you have in your life.

But still considering that this post is about giving gratitude to your outer beauty, I must say that I am proud to have a pretty eyes, it’s not big nor small it’s just a perfect almond shape with brown shade and combined with a not so pointed nose. 

Before i used to envy those who have small lips but later on, I comprehend that many girls to have a large lips like the models who used to pout their lips.

 I am uniquely me, sometimes I can be erratic, sometimes cheerful and funny but one thing is for sure, I always have an ear for everyone, i can listen and I do listen well. I can be your good friend  and I know how to appreciate and value friendship. The beauty of life is definitely something worth thankful for, I am beautiful, more than words.

Holiday Gift Ideas : The Original Knirps

10723374_715518201831082_202832390_n

I remember the poem my grandmother wrote and here’s some of it’s wordings, “I hope you can be my umbrella, someone who can shield me from tears and pain”.  When I received this pretty umbrella, I remember the time I have with my grand mother. She’s my shield from all the pain and she was there during happiness and sadness.

As time goes by, the things around us also evolves from it’s humble beginning to a worldwide known innovation. Knirps is one great example of how an invention can move people. Honestly, i have never known that they are the one who invented  the folding umbrella.  Knirps from Germany set the world standard for pocket umbrella with their wide selection and different styles.

Did you know?

The word Knirps actually means “little one” in German, and ever since the company invented the folding umbrella in 1928, it has set the worldwide standard for designing umbrellas that are not only “little,” but fashionable and durable as well.

Ultra light and pocket friendly those are just the two things I always look for my umbrella. Something that is compact yet sturdy and can handle  even a windy day but also would not compromise it’s style.

Since 1928, Knirps boasts and pride a legacy of precision German engineering. Here are some signature qualities of Knirps umbrella  that you ought to know:

  • Made from super-strong steel or high-grade aluminum, lined with zinc for additional strength and flexibility
  • Ergonomically comfortable
  • No-slip grip provides secure hold when wet
  • Repels water with unique flat-weave polyester
  • Flex with the wind from any direction
  • Can flip completely inside out and back again – good as new

Just reading those qualities and characteristics could make me a believer but it’s not done yet, the fact that the company vows to meet modern environmental protection requirements and has strict guidelines for recycling and waste management makes me more proud of knowing this brand. It’s not a surprise for me that they are awarded in Germany as brand of the century since their achievements is more than enough proof for such a prestigious commendation.

 Knirps umbrella are definitely something worth having during sunny and rainy days.  Their quality and durability is enough proof to be a proud owner of this umbrella.
