The Stick Muscle Roller

The Stick, A toothbrush for your muscles! The Stick is a simple product that keeps muscles relaxed during rollout. Construction is simple a flexible stick, with rollers in between two grips at each end. You can use it directly on the skin on through light clothing. It is waterproof and designed to bow without fear of breaking. I now use it before, sometimes during and after my workouts (who am I kidding I use it when I watch TV, on the phone…).

The Stick benefits, I must start with how it relieves pain and increases range of motion, promoting flexibility and accelerating recovery time. You can also roll out knots of muscles, providing myofascial release and trigger point therapy. It warms muscles, increases circulation and encourages nutrient-rich blood flow.

Ultimate muscle hygiene, just roll sides of neck stay on the muscle and off the spine. You can use it on the back, just roll one side at a time, and stay off the spine. And my favorite is forearms; biceps, butt cheeks and legs remember again stay off the shin this is for the muscles.

Fun, The Stick is so enjoyable it is tough to put down, I do have a soft foam floor roller that I use, yet I must say The Stick gets a lot more attention.

West Coast Cigar & Spirits Tasting Newport Beach, California

What do Belly Dancers have to do with Cigars?

“Cigar and Spirits” you can say one or the other and it’s an event I would like to be at, both together it’s a guaranteed success. The 4th Annual West Coast Cigar & Spirits Tasting, The Ultimate Lifestyle Event was held at the Newport Beach Hyatt presented by Cigar & Spirits Magazine. Cigars were presented as you entered in an outdoor tented area with live music, when you went inside there were Spirits, Food and more entertainment.

The advertising said, “Come and sample some of the world’s greatest spirits and cigars and to take home hundreds of dollars worth of premium cigar samples”. Tickets were $120, yet to sample the world’s greatest spirits and take home… is a deal. Paid events tend to attract true connoisseurs this one had, great camaraderie, from consumers and suppliers- you knew everyone wanted to be there. You were given a postcard when you arrived and as you visited with each of the cigar companies they would punch their logo (15 cigar logos on the card), and give you a cigar or two or three, a cutter, matches… The system is smart and organized, as juggling tasting spirits, food, entertainment, and cigars at the same time needs. Garo Cigars, Gurkha Cigars, Diamond Crown Cigars, Falto Cigars, Psyko Seven Cigars, Drew Estate, Rocky Patel… and more cigar companies, then you had Hangar 24 Craft Beer, Cognac, Moonshine, Bourbon, Nolet’s Gin, Tatratea, BuzzBar (alcohol-infused ice cream for adults), Tequila Uno, Abreojos Tequila, Comisario Tequila (shown in photo) and soo much more to eat and drink.

The following day I went through, the bag that was given to me when I arrived and which I used to put things in as they were given to me. I emptied it out (shown in photo) as I went through it, I remembered the passion and generosity of each company that participated in the event. This event gets better and better every year, I am sure the majority of the people who attended this year will be back next year as it once again exceeded expectations. What do belly dancers have to do with Cigars? There both smoking hot.
