The “Here We Go Again” New Years Resolution January 6, 2011

This year like every year I’ve decided to try to lose weight. Every January I start a new diet regimen to get of the 15-20 pounds that I put on from Fall to Christmas. This year is no different and I’m back to eating a lot of salads and drinking a lot of water. Gone are those lovely lattes and mochas that I like to consume this time of year. Sad smile


Things are a little different this year because I’ve found a place that can do Ultra-Trim body wraps and  give me back that toned look that I lack during the Winter months. Here is a description of what one of these body wraps consists of:

“The Ultra-Trim Wrap is our powerful double body wrap performed back-to-back in the same visit.
Your first wrap will consist of being wrapped lightly with bandages soaked in our Infinity solution, you’ll remain in this wrap for 45 minutes, getting the solution reapplied every 20 minutes.

After unwrapping, a fresh set of bandages with a new solution will be used to begin another wrap. You can select any one of the 3 solutions for your second wrap. This wrap can stay on anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. Reapplication of solution will occur every 15 to 20 minutes. Then you’ll be unwrapped and re-measured.

The Ultra-Trim is a great choice for those with hard or solid fat, or those that want to achieve dramatic results for a special occasion.”


I can’t wait to treat myself to this after I lose 10-15 pounds. You need an occasional reward to keep yourself going to the gym and depriving yourself of all yummy goodies available this time of year.

The Electronic Cigarette: a Brilliant or Goofy Idea? January 5, 2011

Filed under: Web/Tech — tinostravelblog @ 3:20 pm
Tags: ,

When I first heard that electronic cigarettes had come on to the market I thought that it was the silliest thing that I had ever heard. After checking out the product however, I can see how this could be a great way for smokers to satisfy their addiction without all of the health risks involved with traditional cigarettes. Over the past few years regular cigarettes have been banned from restaurants, bars, casinos and other public places. It seems like every month a new state or province announces a smoking ban of some sort. 

The electronic cigarette feels, tastes and looks like a cigarette or cigar, but has a reduced health risk for the smoker and doesn’t produce second-hand smoke. The gadget uses a small rechargeable battery and a replaceable cartridge that contains water, nicotine, propylene glycol and a scent that is similar to tobacco. While smoking, a vapor is released which is harmless and evaporates quickly. Smoking has many negative impacts on people that smoke and people that surround them. One bonus feature of electronic cigarettes is that due to the fact that they are flameless there are no stubs or ash to deal with and no associated fire hazard. This could be a relief to those with the habit of smoking in bed or that tend to smoke during hot summers at campgrounds or in wilderness areas. Not doubt many forest fires can be averted just by making the switch to this new product.

epic fail photos - Nail Polish Collection FAIL

I don’t know who we have to protect our kids from more, the media or the mountain of strange crap that is marketed to them. Are there child safety products that can protect our sons and daughters from such quality wares as the Justin Bieber Nail Polish collection? I think not.

A beach wedding is a very romantic way to get married but there are a few things that you have to consider about having your wedding outside. One thing to consider is the possibility of high winds, sweltering sun, sand fleas, roaming dogs, and whales beaching themselves. The last thing you want is a whale to beach itself during your wedding party. Winking smile
