Reasons to Quit Smoking

Many smokers start smoking from their teenage years, mainly due to peer pressure and got hooked. I know many smokers today, who started smoking in high school just because everyone else was smoking and they wanted to feel cool. Many years down the line, they realise the damage they are doing to their health, and try to quit smoking but find themselves struggling.

I recently came across this infographic by Aquavape, all about people’s top flavours, the percentage of people who switched from smoking cigarettes to vaping, and how many people believe it is healthier. This infographic came about as a result of a survey recently carried out by Aquavape, and I found the results very interesting.

Like I mentioned in my previous vaping posts, smoking e cigs/ e cigarettes is healthier than smoking tobacco cigarettes and it is a great way to quit smoking altogether.

I first heard about Vaping some years ago, and I had the opportunity to review some e cigs/e cigarettes. I found the idea of vaping very interesting and useful for those struggling to quit tobacco smoking. Most smokers know the damage smoking tobacco cigarettes does to their body, but they are unable to stop for various reasons. This is where e cigarettes come in. They are a great way to help with the nicotine cravings and carry a fraction of the risk of tobacco cigarettes. So smoking e-cigarettes is a great way to quit smoking eventually, and it is even backed by the NHS Stoptober Quit Smoking Campaign for the first time this year, which is fantastic news for millions of people.

 

Reasons to Quit Smoking

 

To Improve your health

Smoking tobacco cigarettes can do a lot damage to your lungs. This damage can lead to life threatening diseases such as pneumonia, emphysema and lung cancer. The best time to stop is now. So if you are struggling to quit smoking, you should research vaping/e cigs to see if that is your best alternative.

 

To save money

Tobacco smoking can be very expensive. You could save around £250 a day if you were smoking a packet a day. That is money you can put to good use.

 

To protect your loved ones

Quitting smoking can help protect your loved ones from harmful secondhand smoke. This would reduce their risk of developing asthma, meningitis, cancer and other secondhand smoke related diseases.

 

To smell good

If you smoke or you know anyone that does, you would know all about the concentrated smell of cigarettes that just does not go away. It stays on their clothes, bags, shoes, anything and everything. This may sound vain but it bothers me a lot. If you are a regular reader of Fashion and Style Police, you would know all about how I like to smell good. I even a whole post on how to get rid of body odour. So you know how important good smells are to me. I guess this is also another good thing about vaping, since e cigs come in various nice smelling flavours.

 

Are you trying to quit smoking tobacco cigarettes? How are you finding it? Have you tried e cigarettes?

Organizing your Wardrobe this Autumn

Autumn is here pretty much here. So that means it is time to get the warm clothing out in time for the chilly season. Organizing your wardrobe this autumn is a must for me. It is the only way I think straight, as far as style is concerned.

Here are a few tips you may find useful if you are planning on preparing your wardrobe for new chilly season.

 

Have a Clear Out

I like to have a good wardrobe clear out after every season. The clear out session is always very ruthless. I lay all I have on my bed and take decide on what stays and what goes. This allows me to take a good look at my wardrobe, so I have a good idea of what clothing and accessories I do have. It also allows me to see the pieces I don’t like or that no longer fit. Having a clear out allows me get rid of the items that need to go, which will in turn creates room for items I do need.

Apart from how much the clear out helps my personal style, I also find them very therapeutic. Living a clutter-free life is so good for the state of mind.

Storage

Once the clear out is done, old season’s clothing and accessories go into storage in our mini attic. It is currently impossible to have all my clothing in my wardrobe, so storage makes my life a lot easier.

 

Fill up the Gaps

Once the clear out is done, and the excess is kept in storage, there are usually gaps in my wardrobe that need filling. So I usually get a few pieces and accessories here and there. I always ensure I shop smart in order for my clothes to work hard for me.

Arrange the Clothes in Order

I like to arrange my clothes in order. So for autumn/winter, I would have jumpers and sweaters in a section, cardigans and shawls in another section, and it goes like that. Having my clothes in order allows me to see what I have and decide on what I want to wear quickly. Having a disorganised wardrobe gives me a migraine.

 

How are you organizing your wardrobe for autumn/winter season? Is your wardrobe in order? Please drop your comments in the comments section below.

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day.

 

 

 

Beauty Muse – Princess Diana

I saw the Netflix Documentary – The Story of Diana, some weeks ago. It reminded me why the whole world fell helplessly in love with Princess Diana. She was a rare gem, that touched so many lives all over the world. This documentary marked the 20 years anniversary of her death and I can’t believe it has been that long already. I remember watching her burial on TV at a hairdressing salon when I was about 10 years old, and how the whole world stood still on that day.

I learned a lot from documentary about her personal life, marriage and how she moved on after the marriage. 20 years ago is a long time. I guess I was to young to make sense of what I read in the tabloids. I found the part of the breakdown of her parents’ marriage very sad, so I can imagine how she must have felt then. To be fair, I found the whole documentary sad but I am glad it is on Netflix, so those of us who were too young to understand what was going on back them, can have a good idea now.

The Story of Diana Documentary triggered this beauty muse post. The princess was indeed a beauty, both inside and out.

There was something so personal about the Princess Diana’s look. It is hard to place a finger on it, but I believe she was the whole package. She had the height, the figure, the beautiful face and her hairstyle was hair goals back in the day. I also loved the fact that she wore very light makeup, and still looked phenomenal.

If you are yet to watch the The Story of Diana documentary on Netflix, I urge you to go watch it. It is a 2 part series and shows real life interview clips, footage and so on. Definitely worth a watch.

Do leave a comment with your thoughts if you have watched the documentary. Also, what do you think of Princess Diana as a beauty muse?
