Gift Guide: South Beach Smoke eCig Starter Kit

Before I begin this review, I'd like to say that I am not a supporter of smoking. I am, however, all for those who want to quit, and this is one of the methods to do so. My father, a heavy smoker since his early teens, was the receiver of the South Beach Smoke eCig Kit we received to review. He has wanted to change his smoking habit over the years, especially with two kids under the age of 10 in the house. The Deluxe Starter Kit comes with following items:

  • 1 Standard Battery - NEW SuperMAXTM Battery 
  • 1 Extra-Capacity Battery - NEW SuperMAXTM Battery 
  • 1 Deluxe USB Charger 1 Portable Wall Charger and
  • 4 Large Nicotine Cartridges/Atomizers - Equals 14-16 Packs of Cigarettes (Choice of Flavor & Strength)

  • Unpacking and set-up was easy, we simply screwed on one of the nicotine cartridges to the battery and it was ready to go. There is no on/off switch, all my father had to do was inhale and an orange crystal tip lit up. The amount of smoke that it produces was almost equal to a regular cigarette, he said. From the South Beach Smoke website, "Smokers enjoy doses of a vaporized liquid nicotine solution and exhale a water vapor that resembles a puff of smoke". Charging via the USB charger is just as easy, and with two batteries included in the Deluxe Starter Kit, it's more than enough to keep him going.

    After a couple days of using the eCigs, the flavor, as he describes it, has grown on him. While I don't mind the subtle smell of nicotine from the cartridge itself, it's a thousand times more tolerable than his regular cigarettes. There is also no second-hand smoke, which is one of the main concerns in our household. Only time can tell if they will help him quit, but the start of this journey is looking rather positive. We will definitely be doing an update review within a couple of months to map his progress.

    The South Beach Smoke Deluxe Starter Kits retails for $59.99 and I think would make a great gift for a smoker in your life who has been wanting to try a method to quit smoking. While this may not work for everyone, I think the positive reviews online regarding South Beach Smoke, and eCigs in general, are enough to try them out. With the holidays already here, this can make a great Christmas present, or in my opinion, a New Years present for those who "wish to quit smoking" for their 2014 resolutions.

    Disclaimer: I was NOT paid for this post, however I did receive the product in question,  from the company or their representing  PR company,  free of charge in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own and I have provided a fair and honest review. I received no other compensation for my review nor was I under any obligation to give a positive review.

    Taco Bell: Free Two Doritos Locos Tacos & Large Drink wyb $20 Gift Card.

    If you're someone on a budget, it's no surprise that "free" is always a good thing to hear. So many stores and restaurants like to give incentives during the Holiday Season to gift givers. Gift cards are sometimes the best and safest route to go when it comes to gift giving. On that note, thanks to the great people over at Taco Bell, I have a great promotion to share with you guys!

    Taco Bell has a great promotion for you gift givers (whether it be to yourself, or others)! When you buy a $20 Taco Bell Gift Card, you get two free Doritos Locos Tacos (DLTs) and a large drink. This is available at time of purchase, meaning in store. Now, that's around a $5 value, which you can devour yourself while thinking of others. Now, if that's not rewarding, I don't know what is!

    I am a huge Taco Bell fan but had yet to try the Doritos Locos Tacos. I got around to trying the Doritos Locos Taco in Cool Ranch (also comes in Nacho Cheese and Fiery flavors) yesterday using the gift card Taco Bell generously sent over for this purpose :) I was skeptical, even with the Cool Ranch being my favorite flavor of Doritos. Once I took the bite, it was gone within the minute, which is unfortunate because I missed out on taking a great little picture for you folks! Best $1.39 you'll spend there, hands down.

    The two free Doritos Locos Tacos (DLTs) and a large drink with $20 Gift Card purchase at Taco Bell ends on December 25th, 2013. So hurry and treat others while treating yourself this holiday season!

    Playstation 4 Pre-order Bundles Now Available at Walmart!

    It's Time! 
    Playstation 4 Pre-order Bundles are now available at Walmart, and you'll even be able to customize it with an accessory or game. Or you can simply choose the bundle that best suits your needs. What IS important is that you can pre-order them and be satisfied knowing you won't have to run around from store to store looking for a PS4 when they come out. And if you don't pre-order, that is exactly what you'll be doing.

    Walmart's GameCenter has released a wonderful and quirky video just in time for pre-order madness! Make you you check it out for some laughs! With a screenshot like the once below, who wouldn't want to watch? :)

    Far Cry 3 - $33 via Amazon's Gold Box Deal of the Day! #FarCryGold #spon

    Thank you to Ubisoft for sponsoring this post. Please visit Amazon.com to get your own copy of Far Cry 3, today's Gold Box Deal of the Day! I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective. All opinions are my own.

    New Year's brings about the start of many changes for many people. With resolutions to uphold, there is a lot of stress that comes with it all. For myself, this year is bringing about a lot of problems and issues that have to be dealt with. This, in turn, causes quite a bit of stress, of which is not welcomed and makes things hectic.

    I have many stress relieving methods I use, the top being meditation. There is no better feeling than that of clearing your head of everything for an hour or two. It clears your head, and helps you think of things in different ways after. I also enjoy taking my dogs on a long walk in the cold, it is very refreshing. The third method, while seeming a bit odd to some, is listening to some hard rock music at a very, very high volume. And if all else fails, video games have been a common method I've turned to since I was young. Growing up in the golden age of gaming (the 90s), this comes to no surprise.

    Speaking of, I wasn't much into first-person shooter games, but in the past couple of years they have grown tremendously on me. The stories behind the games, the amount of dedication, and the immersion into them have made them a favorite genre in a short amount of time. And with great timing, Amazon is having a great deal today. You can get Far Cry 3 for $33 via Amazon's Gold Box Deal!

    After getting a chance to play for Far Cry 3 at a friends house, I can't wait to get a copy for myself! So if you, yourself, can't wait, make sure you take advantage of Amazon's Gold Box Deal of the Day and snatch up a copy for only $33! Also, the wonderful people over at CleverGirls are giving away 5 copies of Far Cry 3 to FIVE lucky people who RT the following:
