Vaping is for Valentines

e cig juice vaping

Sure, Valentines Day 2017 falls on a work day—and not one in the later half of the week—but there's still something to be said about looking obstacles like forced separation due to different workplaces as a challenge to your abilities to break through those barriers and get your message of St. Valentine-inspired love to the one who melts your heart. If vaping is the thing that you two like to do, then we've got a few suggestions for you. There's still plenty of time to place an order and have it delivered to you before the second week of February.

Vape your way into bae's heart

Haven't quite mastered those vape cloud hearts, yet? Keep practicing but you know your honey wants nothing but some quality time with you. And if you both like to vape throughout your day then you can always find a few moments to connect in a unique way.

We imagined a day where a few strategically-placed vape sessions can make the day a whole lot sweeter for fans of e-liquids. It doesn't have to take a lot of planning to make these moment happen but when you mix some gift-giving with serendipity, you come off looking like the hero of all Valentines.

Vaping the sweet stuff with your Valentine

Start the day off with fresh, at-home brewed coffee along with an early morning vape of our Belgian Waffle e-liquid. Subtle cinnamon notes play off of warm maple flavors for something that resembles your favorite breakfast made by mom.

Thankfully, mom has been replaced with a significant other and you two can now linger a little longer in bed and make plans for later. Little do they know you've already had a package of Coffee Cake e-liquid delivered to their office so they have something to vape on a coffee break. Brown sugar, butter crumble topping, and real whipped cream—how sweet!

And when you finally meet up after a long day at work, maybe you go out for dinner and maybe you cook something at home but may we recommend skipping dessert and catching it on the flip-side when you share a Chocolate e-liquid post-coitus vape between the sheets.

By about the third time that just the right e-liquid happens to pop up at just the right time, bae will appreciate the attention to detail you put into making the day just right. We're here to help any way we can and if that means supplying the most surprising flavors of e-liquid that you can pair in unique ways with your lifestyle then so be it. We love helping customers live a more satisfying and flavorful life.


Warming Up Less With a Vape

cigarettes to vaping vaping

The United States is warming up fast-researchers suggest that we will reach dangerous levels 20 years sooner than the rest of the planet. The study, compiled by researchers from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, was released as the US prepared to inaugurate President Donald Trump. Meanwhile, on his first full day in office, Trump had all references to global warming, and climate change dropped from the official White House website. Not surprising since it was he who has dismissed global warming as a hoax created by China "in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive".

The researchers created computer models of the Earth and simulated the pattern of increased warming in different parts of the world. We will warm up by two degrees Celsius of warming when the average for the rest of the world is a half a degree cooler. And the Northeastern states is where the effects are already the most noticeable; they are experiencing an increase in temperature by about 3C while the rest of the world averages a 2C rise.

The study infers that the 48 states of the contiguous US will reach 2C by about 2050. That 2C is a magic number because that's the point at which scientists believe dangerous weather events will start to take place, and the United States will be among the first to experience those events.

From their report: "The differential warming of land and ocean leads to many continental regions in the Northern Hemisphere warming at rates higher than the global mean temperature. Adaptation and conservation efforts will, therefore, benefit from understanding regional consequences of limiting the global mean temperature increase to well below 2C above pre-industrial levels. The regional warming rates differ considerably across the contiguous US, but all regions are projected to reach 2C about 10-20 years before the global mean temperature."

The answer to this isn't vaping, but we've discovered some ways that it can help.

1. 5.6 trillion cigarettes are smoked annually; roughly 3.28 trillion cigarette butts are thrown out or tossed onto the ground. By vaping, we keep a lot of that harmful waste out of landfills where harmful chemicals leach from cigarette butts into the ground. The butts that end up on city streets have a chance of affecting water runoff that becomes drinking water.

2. According to preventcigarettelitter.org, 32% of all coastline litter is cigarette butts. Because they are not biodegradable, cigarettes take up to 12 years to fully decompose. By vaping, your keeping fish and other wildlife safe from harmful chemicals.

3. Cigarette smoke releases 16 million metric tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Vaping does not!

4. Tobacco farming accounts for 40% of its annual deforestation in South Korea and Uruguay. Deforestation robs the Earth it's only way to turn carbon dioxide into clean air, so emissions go up and account for about 5% of global greenhouse gas emissions every year.

5. Finally, vaping creates none of the harmful leftovers that animals have a tendency to eat or absorb through their food when cigarette butts get strewn throughout their environment.

So help save the planet, and vape today!


Highlights of 2016

vaping


The year 2016 was loaded with surprises. You almost didn't know what was going to happen next. From the presidential election to people passing away, it was definitely an eventful time that many won't soon forget. Check out some of the top highlights from 2016.

Flint Water Crisis

Even if you don't live in Flint, MI, you have probably heard about the water crisis that affected the entire city. Lead contamination from corroded pipes entered the city's drinking water and caused a state of emergency to be declared by federal and state governments in January.

Governor Snyder ended up mobilizing the Michigan National Guard to distribute water filters, bottled water and testing kits to residents who were scared to use the tap water. They had good reason to avoid it too. At one point along the way, 5 percent of all the children under age five had elevated lead exposure based on information from the Center for Disease Control.

President Obama ended up coming to the city in May to demonstrate how reliable the new water filters were by drinking out of a tap with one of these filters on it. The problem continues today, but residents are hoping for an answer soon.

Peyton Manning Retires

Peyton Manning led the Denver Broncos to the Super Bowl in 2016. While he only threw for 141 yards and never made a touchdown, they ended up winning the game 24-10 to give Manning his 200th career victory and set an NFL record. This was his second Super Bowl title, which helped secure his place among the greats. His mom wanted him to go out on a high note after winning the big game, which is exactly what he ended up doing. While it wasn't an immediate decision, it was one that many will remember for quite some time.

Kobe Leaves a Champion

In April 2016, Kobe Bryant ended up playing the last game of his 20-year career with the Lakers. He ended a basketball era with an impressive record encompassing five championships and 18 All-Star appearances. His 1,556th game and last score left him with 60 points and a victory of 101-96 over the Utah Jazz. The crowd didn't seem to care about the score. They only cared that Bryant was on his way out. Every time he scored the crowd cheered with a piercing volume that was unlike anything you could ever imagine.

Vaping Laws Changed

Just about everywhere you looked, you heard about the changing vaping laws making it more difficult than ever for vape store owners to continue operating. The outlandish taxes and fees are making it virtually impossible for many to survive the ordeal, leaving many having to shut down their businesses that they worked so hard for.

Things are changing and vape store owners are fighting back to make sure the government doesn't take advantage of them along the way. Even though things might be changing, there is no time like the present to pick up your favorite e-liquid and experience the difference a new juice can make in your life.

While these are only a few of the things that transpired in 2016, there are countless others out there as well. Who knows what 2017 will bring to the table?

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

e cig juice vaping

The Stockings Were Hung
This year, Christmas is creeping in upon us much earlier, the same way Halloween did. It is clear that we are now taking our Halloween costumes out and putting the Santa hats on. As if that's not enough, every store is being graced with well-decorated Christmas trees accompanied with Christmas songs. And a bewildering number of us keep going home with Christmas paraphernalia every time we visit the grocery store without even knowing. Is this intriguing?

Psychologically, this Christmas has found me surprisingly unprepared. Has this year's Christmas come earlier where you are too? You can relate to these early favorite signs that make it look like it is the beginning of Christmas.

  • Beverage servings in red cups: In every restaurant, it is all red. From the cups to bows and the beautification on their walls- everything is red.
  • The Christmas Trees: Some people already have erected Christmas trees which are fully decorated in some shiny, red and green. Wreaths have been gracing our malls since Halloween, a clear indication of Christmas.
  • Christmas Commercials: As early as October, TV commercials have been all about Christmas. It seems everything is now looped into the Christmas season. Some channels are already counting down days to December 25th, while others are on board casting some holiday movies such as "How the Grinch Stole Christmas."
  • The Christmas Songs: People are now going for Michael Buble and other musicians Christmas songs as early as now. And they are really into it.

Since this Christmas is here with us much early, you can decide to host an "ushering-Christmas" vape party. Offer an assortment of different flavors of e-liquids to your friends and families. Here are some of the best vape flavors to jingle your bells and make you get into the holiday spirit much more.

  • Coffee-Bavarian Hazelnut Cream: It is a mild, subtle blend of coffee flavor with undertones of vanilla cream and hazelnut. The features make it sweet enough to vape and enjoy a voluminous amount all day.
  • Black Cherry Dulcet: For the cherry lovers, this is a strong fruit e-liquid that you need to try. It blends cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate, and cherries. It is purely natural and whole unless diluted on request. The taste improves with the increase in cherries.
  • Crème Brulee: This is one of the best vape flavors. Vanilla custard, marshmallow, French vanilla and brown sugar extra all blend well making it a bit stronger when you vape. A topping of banana can add a unique sweet flavor too.
  • Amaretto Amore: It is characterized with a bitter-sweet taste. It brings a double flavor for its 100% flavors with enough pucker to make you yearn for more.

Vaping with these different flavors will go a long way in ensuring your holiday moods remain high.

Share a Vape with a Veteran

vaping

Veteran's DayShowing appreciation for the services provided by veterans is not difficult. Demonstrating appreciation is as easy as sharing time with a veteran. Consider these six ways to show appreciation to a veteran.

Share conversation and a favorite vape

Veterans sometimes feel forgotten after returning home from military service. Simply spending time with a veteran goes a long way towards making that vet feel appreciated and that their contributions and service is not forgotten.

Let the veteran share stories about their military service. Talk about anything the veteran wants to talk about. Most importantly, make sure the veteran knows that you are listening to every word.

Make sure to take the veteran's favorite vape for the two of you to share during the conversation. If you are not sure which vape is the veteran's favorite, ask or simply take along a few different flavors. Leave any extra for the vet to enjoy later.

Share a meal

Veterans sometimes struggle to make ends meet. Take a veteran out for lunch or out for a nice dinner. Doing so means that veteran receives a nourishing meal and hydration. Even if the veteran is not having difficulties making ends meet, what is better than a good meal and good conversation?

This is another great time to share a vape. The veteran returns home well fed and feeling like someone really appreciates their service to their country.

Participate in activities to honor veterans

Many communities have events to honor and benefit local veterans. While many communities plan events on Veteran's Day, that day is not the only time to show appreciation to veterans. Consider purchasing items at a local bake sale, dinner or community sale that benefits veterans.  There are many veteran-owned businesses, both local and online; supporting a veteran's business is another great way to show your appreciation for their service.

To show even more appreciation for veterans in your area, consider donating items to events honoring and benefiting veterans or volunteering at a benefit event yourself.

Visit veterans in a military hospital

Veterans in military hospitals need visitors like anyone else in the hospital. Show your appreciation to veteran by visiting the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in your area.

Meet the veterans and let them know how much you appreciate each of them.

Give care packages

Consider taking a small care package to veterans at the local VA Medical Center or to a center for homeless veterans. Having basic hygiene items goes a long way towards improving self-esteem.

You could include items such as deodorant, soap, wipes, a comb, razors or any other personal care items you can easily purchase. Perhaps you want to also include a small snack such as granola bars or trail mix.

Simply say "Thanks"

Simply saying "Thank you" goes a long way towards showing appreciation to a veteran or active duty member of the military. Thank veterans and shake their hand to let them know that their service is not forgotten and that they are sincerely valued and appreciated.
