    Sun Moon Stars mixed with some caramel cappuccino. Wanted to try a weird combination. Cannot really taste the cappuccino, though. The first time I had it was too overpowering. So I keep putting too little in. Haha. Bought a diffuser and it was perfect for getting rid of the shaking. Thanks for the recommendation guys!

    Currently smoking some Fantasia mix of White Lotus and this Caramel Cappuccino; I found the White Lotus underwhelming and the Caramel Cappuccino overwhelming when I tried them alone, so I tried to offset with a greater ratio of WL in this mix, but I think I didn't put enough cappuccino in it, ironically enough. Well, I think experimenting is the name of the game, anyway. At least the WL seems more apparently and less dead than it did the last time I tried it solo.

    Got some Sun Moon Star going currently, it's not bad. When pulling from hose, my hookah shakes, but otherwise is stable; is this something anyone else has had experience with? It just makes me a bit nervous.

    I've just got some Magic Dragon from fantasia going. I've not had it since a lounge, so it's nice to try it again. Sometimes I miss the mint part of the flavour, but when it comes through I really enjoy the blueberry/mint pairing, actually. It reminds me a bit of a pastry or blueberry tea, perhaps. Finally finished a lab report for my genetics class, so now I get to enjoy my night a bit. Happy birthday to TheEightyFour! Hopefully your new flavours are boss (so I can order them sometime and be impressed ;]).

    Smoking some Rozay Wine from Fantasia, and I'm either impressed with the way I packed the bowl or the shisha itself because it's producing a really nice amount of smoke and flavour. I give it a good review!

    Congrats on winning contests! I won some running/fitness tape in a contest once and was pretty stoked. So, here's some images of what I've got going on. Sorry if they're gigantic. I cannot seem to find the feature that dd used to attach his image kinda small and clickable so it blew up (maybe that's mobile only?) Also, yes, it's on a filing cabinet, haha. I REALLY like this base because it's a bit more sophisticated (imho) than some of the coloured glass ones you might run into. The only thing that's sorta peeving me is the grommet for the stem-bowl area. It's very tight, but not in the best sense. I can put it onto the stem so it's well secured and would form a nice seal with the bowl, but then I leave for 20 seconds and come back and the sucker has "rebounded" itself so that only half of it is on the stem-bowl junction part of the stem. This has led to my bowl falling off, but thank gods it was when there wasn't anything in it. It's only a matter of time before that happens I think though. -.-' The stem-base junction was loose and did the tilting stem, but it was easily fixable with the famous electrical tape hack. Hope no one is too hungover

    My Egyptian "Pharaoh" 2-hose hookah arrived in the mail, with basic accessories and Cobra hoses. It's doing really well, but I'll have to work with it a bit to get a better seal. Overall impressed and happy enough. The bowl I got seems a bit ugly in that it's got some dents/chunks around the rimming and whatnot from its baking and glazing (guessably). It seems to smoke fine though. I wanted to try this Caramel Cappucino. It smells great, but can be a bit strong/overpowering at times. Enjoying the Coconara coals I got. WAY less ashing than the QLs, haha. Now excited to try all sorts of flavours. : ) Happy 4th from Illinois!

    I say if the shipping and handling isn't painful, give it a shot. It could work out well, and if not, you could always regift or something!

    That's a happy hookah, haha. What'd you use to light the coals? It's a struggle for me to light mine on a stove, but I have a feeling they're cheap also. I dunno what brand... Just that they were sorta blood cell shaped.

    Those coals look fantastic.

    Oh, definitely. The flavour is fine with me (and is a little neater to deal with haha), but I was missing the nicotine/tobacco. Hopefully that makes sense. I've never tried flavour stones, but maybe in the future I'll have better understanding for reference.

    Went to Chicago Pride Parade, and then after a few hours in genetics lab, finally able to kick back a bit. Currently smoking Fantasia Ice Mint with a bit of "Hydro herbal molasses" Blackberry. I inherited this mock shisha from a friend, but will hopefully get some actual shisha in the future (will be ordering a new hookah also). I love the ice mint paired with anything, to be honest. I'm new, so not really in any hurry, though.
