Blu Cigs: Fashionable Quality and Style

Standard

Electronic cigarettes have been growing in popularity, and people have been talking about Blu Cigs more than ever. The brand is one of the most popular e-cigarette brands of 2013, and with advertisements featuring Stephen Dorff, as well as a sponsorship of the Sasquatch! Music Festival, the company has been making quite a name for itself. But does the company live up to its hype?

With superior quality and style, it actually surpasses the hype. You can find more detailed information and many real  reviews of Blu Cigs at eCigBrandReviews.com.

One of the company’s main priorities is quality. They invests quite a bit in developing and improving its products to provide great e-cigs. The juice in Blu’s cartridges is both American-made and contains no propylene glycol. They also ensure that their e-cigarettes taste as close to tobacco cigarettes as possible, making the experience just as, if not more, enjoyable. This brand’s e-cigarettes are also small, light, and praised for the amount of vapor that they emit.

Blu Cigs offers a variety of flavors, such as Classic Tobacco, Magnificent Menthol, Cherry Crush, Java Jolt, Vivid Vanilla, Pina Colada, and Peach Schnapps. There are also four possible nicotine levels: the full 16mg, the light 12mg, the ultra light 8mg, as well as 0mg. The cartridges are affordable and have about 250 puffs, which is about the same as an entire pack of cigarettes.

When it comes to style, the company seems to be unmatched. Their portable charging cases look just like traditional cigarette packs and come in an elegant white or a cool black. The blue LED on the cigarettes also stands out, giving them a unique, classy appearance.

According to Ilana Greene at Chicagonow, Blu Cigs controls forty percent of the United States e-cigarette market. It’s a popular brand, and for good reason. It provides quality products with a great sense of style and aesthetics. The e-cigarettes’ unique flavors, variety of nicotine options, portability, and looks are all great bonuses. This brand is clearly top of the line.

What is Fashion?

Standard

Let’s explore what “Fashion” is and where it came from. The French use the word “mode” derived from the Latin word “modus” meaning “measure” or “art” – to measure or capture. It refers to the specific period of time and a particular group of people which form a contemporary force or way to do certain things, to use things or to purchase. It is the way of doing something, not of long duration, but over a longer period of time. Fashion is the result of social processes done over and over again with new, then regarded as timely, and revised ideas. Fashion is usually a rather short utterance of the zeitgeist. Relatively longer-term manifestations of the zeitgeist, which can include many great fashion cycles, are considered a classic. Very short-lived fashions that often only produce a single product are known as fads.

ProAesthetics

Standard

Francesca Lanzavecchia (born in Pavia, Italy in 1983) has re-designed medical accessories, such as neck and back braces and managed to make them incredibly sexy.

Francesca Lanzavecchia earned a degree in Product Design from the Politecnico di Milano. In 2008 she obtained a Master degree Cum Laude in IM-Conceptual Design in Context from the Design Academy of Eindhoven. Her thesis project “ProAesthetics Supports”: The Perception of Disability through its Artifacts” was tutored by DROOG Design co-founder Gijs Bakker.

Francesca’s personal  interpretation of design is the results of a multidisciplinary approach combining an engineering problem-solver attitude with an emotional fascination for humanism. Being grounded in the practical and logical, she practices an agile methodology and produces provoking concepts.

Francesca dreams, observes, debates, experiments, designs, and creates; drawing upon the emotional and intangible, while relating them with the real and affecting.

Lanzavecchia’s main interest lies in the relationships objects have and can have with the human body and soul as well as having a fervent eye for future trends. Wai is fascinated by the collisions and fusions of materials, meanings and forms. Their cooperation is based on those focuses and having hailed from two very different countries and cultures, they attempt to feed off each other’s backgrounds, knowledge and skill-sets to fuel lateral thinking and agile tangible application.

Fashion Electronic Cigarettes with Crystal LEDs

Standard

I recently learned about electronic cigarettes which allow smokers to get their nicotine fix without smoke, tobacco and tar. As we all know many fashion photographs in the past had their models pose with cigarettes. What is interesting now is that these electronic cigarettes themselves have become a fashion item by being colorful and by having crystal LED tips which light up when the smoker inhales. On top of that you can store and carry such electronic cigarette in a stylish case.  According to a review website, which collects electronic cigarette reviews, women prefer the pink or stainless steel models and love the crystal LEDs!

Ski Suit with LEDs and Solar Panels

Standard

Recently fashion designer Willy Bogner sent his models on a trip into the future of winter sports. Bogner introduced a new fashion jacket which has solar cells and is also equipped with LED lights. This a new concept of a ski jacket the company is working on. It should be on the market by 2018 just in time for the winter Olympics in Munich. I wonder of the jacket captures solar energy to produce heat to keep the person extra warm while skiing or snow boarding.
