The Benefits of Vaping

I love writing opinion posts. It gives me an avenue to air my sometimes controversial views, and hear from others as well. The comments section on my opinion posts usually goes lit, which is always good. I learn from my readers and they learn from me, so it is a win-win situation regardless of how you see it. My opinion post today is all about the benefits of vaping and why e cigarettes are better than the regular cigarettes.

The vaping industry has recently explored with a variety of e-cigarettes available in different flavours and from many brands. Today, there is no need to put your health in harm’s way if you need to smoke (emphasis on the need). There are various alternatives available, so you can puff away without having to worry about tobacco dangers.

For those who are new to the vaping term, here is an easy definition for you by the guys at Quit Smoking Community –

 

“Vaping is the act of inhaling and exhaling the water vapor produced by an electric device called vaporizer (or e-cigarette).”

 

 

If you are thinking of giving up smoking but struggling to quit, you could try vaping. Here are some of the benefits of Vaping for those who are contemplating quitting smoking but not aware of Vaping  –

 

  1. Vaping is tobacco free and in some cases nicotine free.
  2. There is no harmful smoke. It is all vapour.
  3. No bad smell or breath. E-cigarettes smell much better, they usually have a sweet, fruity, or minty fragrance.
  4. There is a variety of e-cigarettes available in various flavours, so you have options.
  5. No need for dirty ashtrays or cigarette burns.
  6. E cigarettes are more economical than regular cigarettes in the long run.
  7. The chances of getting cancer and other smoke related illness are reduced with Vaping.

So is Vaping safe? Here are some answers from the professionals –

“Vaping is at least 95% safer than smoking.” Public Health England

Vaporizers are many times less harmful than traditional tobacco cigarettes, and Vaping can even help smokers quit. American Heart Association

The proven advantages of Vaping outweigh its “potential” harms. Vaporizers are the first genuinely new way of helping people quit smoking that we have seen in many years. Royal College of Physicians

 

I believe Vaping is a lot safer than regular smoking, and I think it is a great way to quit tobacco smoking.

Favourites Outfit Posts Mid Year Review

Where is 2017 running to? I can’t believe the month of June is almost over. I also can’t believe I haven’t published a single outfit post this month. I did try to post an outfit post at some point, but life got in the way, and I didn’t get to post any. I promise to make up for the gap in July, but for now, I leave with you my favourite outfit posts for the last 6 months.

 

A Beaded Black Dress

I wore this outfit earlier in the year, it is one of the best outfits I have worn this year. I love the Blue Vanilla beaded dress. It is a perfect fit, and there is something elegant about it. I also love the grey NEXT blazer. It gave the outfit a whole new look.

 

The Oversized Trend & the Petite Woman

This is another outfit I really like. I love the relaxed chic look. The highlight of the outfit is the Apricot Charcoal Sequin Cocoon Cardigan. I think it finishes off the look so beautifully.

 

Gucci Birthday Present

I love everything about this look. It is definitely at the top of my favourite outfits posts for 2017 so far. I love the Gucci bag and NEXT jumper. I also love the location; it was Milan and it was my birthday, a birthday I would never forget.

 

Calling the Shots

This outfit is another special one. I love the styling and the photos turned out so great. I would rock this look again. It is one of those looks that was just so easy to style.

 

Spring Fashion

We Should all be Feminists

We teach girls that they can have ambition, but not too much … to be successful, but not too successful, or they’ll threaten men – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

 

There was a time when being a woman meant that you were nothing more than a commodity. No matter how highly placed a woman might have been in society, that perspective didn’t change. In fact, princesses were given away in marriage for the main purpose of helping the king expand his kingdom to other countries or help foster good diplomatic relations.

As strange as this may sound in this day and age, there are societies where women are still treated with disdain or subjected to the worst conditions. However, with the amount of awareness that is being carried out things have gotten a lot better.

Despite this, I feel that there is still a lot to do. We should all be feminists and there is still a massive room for improvement. Here are the reasons why I believe there is still a lot to be done.

 

Women are shamed for being feminists

I think this is the important issue we are having today with regards to being a feminist. Many women are shamed for being feminists, and they are mostly shamed by other women, which I find bizarre. Feminist is now a very dirty word not to be mentioned anywhere on social media, because the many trolls would devour for even thinking the thought out loud.

 

Women are not owning up to their femininity

There are a lot of ladies out there who feel that being strong, confident or independent means they have assumed the masculine role, which is so not true. You can still be feminine and be strong, confident and independent.

We females need to continuously appreciate our feminine side. Many of us fail to own it! We push the femininity aside because we feel that we won’t be able to go far in life, showing off that side to us, the side that makes us. We need to own our femininity without shame.

 

Sexual abuse is still on the high side

I still get shocked at the number of sexual atrocities women go through on a daily basis. Being sexual abused gives hints as to the ancient perspective that women are objects that you can use and dispose off.

This type of perspective is one that needs to be flushed out from society. If we don’t have enough women and men who embrace the feminine cause, then these sexual vices will continue.

Women get paid lower than men

One of the places where we see gender inequality is in the workplace. Women are still given lower pay than men. There has been no reasonable explanation to this. We can only sense that gender issues are still at play.

Women are known to work as hard as men and are equally capable of climbing the ladder of success with their educational qualification and experience. But when the push comes to shove, gender gets in the way, and the woman is robbed off what they truly deserve.

 

There’s a lot of marginalization as regards to things that women can do

It was just recently that women were allowed to serve in the armed forces. Although that can be counted as a small victory there are so many areas where women are either not allowed to be in or are seen as odd creatures in that zone.

A good example is that there are very few female civil engineers as it is seen as more of a man’s trade than a woman’s. It is also seen as odd for a man to be a stay at home father, while the woman is the breadwinner of the family.

 

I had the pleasure of listening to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s  TED Talk, and I found it enlightening. Do have a listen when you can.

So just for record, I am a happy feminist. I love fashion and makeup, I dress for myself and I don’t hate men. I am an unapologetic FEMINIST!
