SoundVape Portable Charging Case Review and Giveaway

For those of us that have electronic cigarettes, we know how horrible it is to be without a way to charge your ecig while on the go. I know that I hate carrying anything extra along with me no matter how long I am going to be gone. I was recently sent the SoundVape Portable Charging Case to review for you guys.

Portable Charging Case for Remix/Beat

This case is great because you can charge your ecig up to 4 times with this case, and you can even hold a second ecig inside.It is definitely a must have if you are always on the go. This charger also works with both the BEAT and Remix kits from SoundVape! I love that it works with more than one kit from their site. One of my favorite things about this charger has to be that it is the perfect size and can even protect your ecigs while they are in your pocket. I hate trying to fit all my cords and chargers in my purse or attempting to carry them around all day. It is just a pain and this makes things so much easier!

This case is equipped with a battery that reminds me of a cell phone battery. Which is good because if there are any problems (which I have not had) you can just reset the battery and it will be good. I have horrible luck with electronics that you can’t just “reset” in some way so I like having the option.

SoundVape Poratable Charger

The case itself slides really well and is very light weight. It doesn’t feel like you are carrying a charger! I think it is even lighter than a lot of ecig cases I have tried, which is really surprising to me! The charging port itself swivels so you can easily connect your ecig. I love that you can also hold a fully assembled ecig, or two carts in the top slot. It is definitely a must have for ecig users!

Unique Costumes from 80s Tees

Halloween is quickly approaching and now is the time to start thinking about what you are going to wear this Halloween. For kids it is okay if their friends are wearing the same costume, but for adults seeing someone that has the same costume can ruin your night. Especially if you thought that your costume was unique. We got a great costume from 80s Tees to review for you!

80s Tees has a selection of costumes that are unique to them! So if you are looking for Unique Costumes you may want to check them out! We got their Bubble Wrap Zoltan Costume to review! As soon as I saw it I knew that it would be something that the hubby would love to wear this year!

Unique Costumes

If you have seen the movie “Dude, Where’s My Car?” you will know what this costume is. If not, this costume is from the cult in the movie made up of a bunch of nerds wanting to go to space and meet a bunch of Aliens. If you have never seen the movie I highly recommend you do. It used to be one of my favorites! Anyway, all of the members of the group of nerds is let by Zoltan and they all wear this bubble wrap suit. Of course Ashton Kutcher and Seann William Scott end up wearing these suits and run around popping everyone’s bubbles. I always wondered if anyone sold those suits just for fun, so when I saw this we had to have it!

The picture above made me believe that it came with the black jumpsuit for underneath but when the package arrived there was only the bubble wrap costume. I was a little disappointed, but nothing a black shirt and some black shorts can’t fix. When we got the costume we could only find a grey shirt so we went with it anyway.

Unique Costumes

Of course hubby went nuts and ran around the house acting like he was Zoltan, but it was still fun. The costume itself is literally bubble wrap with extras added on for comfort and I would imagine to make it more authentic, but if you want something that won’t pop this is not for you. My only problem with this costume is that I wish it was reinforces somehow as he popped it several times just getting in and out of it. It will definitely be a hit on Halloween though and I know I personally have never seen anything like it.

You can find this and other great unique costumes on their website here.

SoundVape Electronic Cigarettes Review

As you know, I have been scouring the web trying to find the best electronic cigarettes at the best prices for you. Recently I came across a brand new e-cig company, SoundVape. They offer high quality e-cigs at amazing prices! I was able to score some of their products to review for you and I could not be happier with my experience! 

About SoundVape

¹sound adjective, adverb \’saủnd\
1. strong, secure, reliable; robust: a sound heart; a sound mind; a sound investment.
2. competent, sensible, or valid: sound judgment.
3. of substantial or enduring character: sound moral values.
SoundVape has fully committed to bringing you products that have just the right balance of quality, ease of use, and affordability. We want to transition our customers into the “vaping” era—a new way for people to “smoke” without the ash, tar, smell, and other chemicals found in traditional cigarettes. We’ve dedicated quite a bit of time testing countless electronic cigarettes on the market while making sure that the products we choose fit the needs and budgets of our customers. Unlike many competitors, we also encourage our customers to refill their cartomizers (nicotine cartridges) to keep more money in their pockets. Vaping should be simple, pleasurable, and cost effective. After trying our products you won’t need to go anywhere else. Join us today and discover the SOUND alternative to smoking.

What I think:

Remix BLACKOUT
I received a Remix Blackout Starter Kit which included two e-cig batteries, a USB charger, an AC wall adapter, and either 6 fill-your-own cartomizers or 6 fresh-to-order pre-filled cartomizers. You heard that right, if you decide to order the pre-filled carts they will be filled the day you order them so that they are as fresh as possible! I chose my kit to have the blank carts so that I could fill them with what I wanted.

I loved that the Remix Blackout has a kind of rubberized finish to it. Not only do I think it looks better than most shiny black e-cigs, but it is also easier to hold. I did notice that this battery does not take as long as some of the other batteries I own to charge, but lasts just as long if not longer. So I was really impressed with this battery. It is also not nearly as heavy, which is a nice change.

This is the second company that I have seen individually wrap their cartomizers. I love this idea because it keeps them fresh and makes it easy for the refillable carts, because you know which ones you have filled and which ones haven’t. With other brands I would sit there and smell each one to see if I had filled it. There is nothing worse than mixing eliquids that do not go well together! So thank you SoundVape for packaging your carts like this!

In case you have never seen a refillable cart before, here is what they look like. They have polly-fill material inside that looks somewhat similar to cotton, and these particular ones utilize horizontal bottom coil technology. Why is this important? It helps each cart last longer and helps prevent the burning taste you get when your cart is empty.

It is super easy to fill up these cartomizers too! You just take your cart at a 45 degree angle, put a drop of liquid on the side above the polly-fill material, rotate and repeat until it starts to pool at the top. Other companies will warn you not to overfill but will not tell you what to do if you overfill. SoundVape let me know that if you blow sharply on the end of your cart over a paper towel or cloth that it will blow the excess liquid out of your cart so it is ready to use! I love that this company tries to help you succeed in using their products! It truly is refreshing to see a company that wants to make things as easy as possible for their customers!

I received both Moondrop Elixir and Straight Up Menthol eliquids. The Straight Up Menthol is a mixture of mint and tobacco that I definitely enjoyed. The mint was a little stronger than I would have preferred, but I could also taste the tobacco flavor behind it. Regardless of the mint, this is the best menthol eliquid I have tried! It actually tasted like a menthol instead of tasting horrible. So it was a nice change.

Moondrop Elixir 10ML

My favorite of the two would have to be the Moondrop Elixir! It took me a long time to figure out what this tasted like. I could tell immediately that it was somehow watermelon and knew that it reminded me of some kind of candy. After a couple of days of sitting there and pondering about the flavor it finally dawned on me! It tastes just like Watermelon Poprocks!! Of course I could be off, but I asked my husband and my brother-in-law and they both agree! I can honestly say I have never tasted anything like this flavor and it is by far the best I have tasted. It is one of the only flavors in my collection that does not leave a weird after taste. This is definitely one of those flavors that leaves you begging for more!

I think SoundVape was spot with their description. Their products are the SOUND alternative to smoking! After testing their products I have definitely become a fan and I can’t wait to share with you what they come up with next! Stay tuned for more awesome products from SoundVape!

Frangelico Hazelnut Liqueur Review

I love being able to come home and unwind after a long day. I am definitely not a big drinker, but I do like to have a drink every now and again. My favorite drinks are ones that are more sweet than anything else, such as drinks that remind me of deserts. That is why I have fallen in love with this next product. 
Frangelico Bottle & Label
If you often venture into the liqueur section at the store then you have probably seen Frangelico Hazelnut Liqueur. The bottle is something you just simple can’t ignore. It has a very unique shape, and design. When I first got my bottle I kept trying to figure out why it had a rope tied on it. When I went to their website I found out that it was there because the bottle is made to look like a friar robe and rope, like what monks wear! I thought that it was pretty cool that they designed the bottle to remind us of where hazelnut liqueur came from.  It just makes this bottle that much more special!

Not only is the bottle pretty, but the liqueur itself is a very pretty amber-caramel color that is almost golden. I like it because its not as dark as most other liqueurs. I like that I could tell right away that it was going to be smooth. I love that you can tell that it is made from hazelnuts just by the aroma, but you can also smell cinnamon, vanilla, and cocoa. It really has its own fragrance.

Frangelico is very smooth, and doesn’t burn like some liqueurs and you can really taste the hazelnut along with cocoa and vanilla. Personally, I don’t normally care for liquors on their own but Frangelico is completely different. I like that I don’t have to make some fancy drink to hide the taste! If you are looking for something a little different Frangelico’s website has plenty of drink options to make just about anyone happy. You can even drink Frangelico accompanied by a sugar-coated lemon wedge to make a Chocolate Cake Shot! There is even a drink recipe for a Red Velvet Cupcake Martini! I love all the things you can do with Frangelico, it really is something special!

Another thing to note about Frangelico is that the liquid itself is not too thick. I think this is great because it makes it so that the flavor doesn’t linger longer than it should.

If you are looking for something great to add to your holiday drinks I think that Frangelico would be perfect. It goes great with so many different things, or is great just by itself.  Don’t just take my word for it, go try it! It really is something that everyone should try. Check out Frangelico’s website here for more information, or to find a store near you!
