Today’s Red Lips Fashionista of the week is Elif out of Germany!
The “Sister of the Leaf (SOTL) Community” is continuously growing and more and more SOTLs are being shown and displayed from many different platforms, which is fantastic and exciting! The fact that we have a large presence in the “Cigar Community” and we are contributing to the lifestyle and movement, is phenomenal! The level of respect and exemplified support from everyone has been consistent and inviting!
The “Cigar Community” is very large and limitless! There are no regional caps related to geographical locations to where anyone is from, the community is universal. Therefore, when you think of Germany, the first thing that comes to your mind might be coldness, and the second recognition is probably associated to being the country that manufactures the top-two selling foreign cars in America, the Mercedes Benz, and the BMW. Interestingly, most BMW owners are unaware of the true definition behind the acronym BMW, which in Germany it’s stated as “Bayerische Motoren Werke.” And, in the English language, it’s interpreted as Bavarian Motor Works (BMW), you can thank me later!
Nevertheless, Germany is nationally known for having one of the largest folk festivals called “Oktoberfest.” This festival is held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany and it’s a 16-18 days long festival running from mid or late September to the first weekend in October, with more than six million people from around the world attending this event, yearly (Source: Oktoberfest.de). The most exciting part about Oktoberfest is all the great beer that’s served, which comes from one of Munich’s six breweries.
There’s a lot of exciting things about Germany, but instantly, you might not associate cigars to Germany, which is why I’m super excited to introduce our Red Lips Fashionista of the week, to you guys.
Elif is an avid cigar smoker and she has been smoking cigars for approximately four to five years. Elif was introduced to cigars by a good friend of hers, who she considers to be a cigar aficionado, gifted her a cigar for her birthday. Elif as with many of us learned that exploring and sampling many different cigars is the best process to knowing more about cigars, understanding the different range of flavors, shapes, and the nuances of cigars. Over time, Elif became more educated about cigars and she began to really have a good grasp about them and her appreciation for the tobacco leaf, impressed her, which it still does, as she samples and tries new cigars, regularly!
Elif likes to pair her cigars with a good coffee, Rum or Gin, but it depends on the time of day, to best determine what’s needed to better enhance her cigar experience. Having a cigar is very relaxing for Elif, it allows her to forget about all the negative moments that happened during her daily routine, the normal day-to-day stresses, and overall separating herself from life’s responsibilities while having a cigar.
Elif also enjoys smoking cigars with friends, because it makes her happy! Also, she believes that sharing a fantastic cigar, stopping what they’re doing, to take time and relax in the moments with her friends, is priceless.
You can always catch this Red Lips Fashionista in a pair of Nike Air Max sneakers, putting her feet up, and “Putting Some Smoke into the Air (PSSITA).
Also, Elif knows how to enjoy some of the most beautiful countryside locations of Germany, and/or remote locations while having a cigar.
Surprisingly, Elif is a huge super-fan of the Chicago Bulls, you would think that she previously lived there, but “Nope,” she’s just a die-hard fan, and that’s what’s so cool and interesting about Elif. Even though she’s all the way in Germany, she still has a lot of the same interests and passions just as anyone else that you become friends with apart of the “Cigar Community.” There’s nothing that divides or separates us as SOTLs, we are all unique, interesting, and sometimes even similar, but we are all very much supportive of each other’s endeavors and backgrounds, which is always to inspire and motivate one another!
Elif is our Red Lips Fashionista of the week because she has such a cool spirit about herself, she’s always very kind, loving, and supportive, who knows how to be trendy, stylish, classy, and sophisticated. She’s very down-to-earth, sure of herself, passionate, and she loves cigars and evens smokes the pipe, outstanding!
