How Chewable Coffee Is Changing The Caffeine Game – Are you going to try it?

2

Up & At It

I love coffee, but there are certain side effects that I could do without – the constant bathroom breaks, teeth stains, jitteriness, upset stomach when you drink too much, etc. So when I discovered Nootrobox’s GO CUBES Chewable Coffee, I knew I had to try them.

Each cube has 50 mg of caffeine, which equals 1/2 cup of coffee, and they come in three flavours: pure drip, latte, and mocha. I bought the sampler box that comes with 6 packs of 4 GO CUBES for US$15.

I definitely got some skeptical looks and comments from people as I told them about this chewable coffee, particularly from my old-school dad who called them my ‘coffee candies,’ but GO CUBES are a serious game changer.

I started my day with the usual morning  cup of coffee, but instead of having another cup goCubesBoxProductShotHighlightLattearound noon, I had two GO CUBES instead. I tried…

Vegan Curry with Cilantro Basmati Rice

Gina DeRoos

I love Curry! The balance of mildly sweet coconut and spicy curry flavors are so warming to my soul. We get fresh organic fruits and veggies delivered every other week, so I’m always looking for ways to incorporate lots of vegetables into one dish. Curry is the perfect dish for that.

This dish incorporates the use of local vegetables as well as essential oils. I used doTERRA black pepper, cilantro and lemongrass essential oils for this recipe. Certain doTERRA oils are safe for internal applications. You can use these oils in recipes for cooking or baking to replace fresh or dried herbs and spices. I was fascinated by the potency, fragrance and aroma in the oils. They transformed the dish, and I was immediately reminded that oils in such a pure and concentrated form is not only a practical option, but better for the environment.

I hope you enjoy this…

The 'not-so' Newly Wed

Well… not literally.

Maybe literally.

They say you only ever truly know someone once you’ve either travelled with them, lived with them or married them. What they left out is that will be when you find out who YOU are, too.

So far I’ve learned that I need nausea pills for the take-off, chew almost half the packet of chewing gum in order to avoid my ears from cracking, and I love couch potato-ing more than I would like to admit. I will also kill my Husband.

That is if I didn’t actually love him, of course. (Or was afraid of prison. Or blood.) Let’s be honest, at some point in your marriage, you have thought about murdering your loved one. Where you have gotten so ANGRY; not upset, not irritated but so ANGRY that you could probably be capable of first degree murder. You would probably have thought about how…

The Hideous Bonsai (BLW Contributor)

thesixfootbonsai

No matter what I chose to do in my life the going seemed to be tough, like forcing water to run uphill, defying gravity—attempting to countermand the very laws of nature and the manner in which the world works.

Imagine me, a simple girl from rural Michigan wanting to be Japanese. Me, an intensely independent child who cherished nothing more than to be outside barefoot on her grandparent’s farm playing in an unstructured manner, transplanting herself into a too shallow vessel in an ineffectual attempt to morph into a demure, soft-spoken woman.

I had been born a Michigan pine, a sapling lashed by the wind that crosses from Lake Michigan to Lakes Huron and Erie. But I had allowed myself to be pruned and trained in an unnatural way . . . not simply in an attempt to acclimate to new soil for a time. No, in an ill-fated decision…

ART – not deliberate, not random, something in between – Jackson Pollock (Art Philosophy) – What do you see?

1
convergencePerhaps his most famous work was a painting entitled Convergence, which was a collage of colors splattered on a canvas that created masterful shapes and lines that evoke emotions and attack the eye. The painting was created in 1952, and is oil on canvas; 93.5 inches by 155 inches (Karmel, 1999). With Pollock’s brushstrokes he was able to make handy use of colors, lines, textures, lights, and contrasting shapes. This painting is enormous and its size can only really be appreciated in person. In 1964, puzzle producing company, Springbok Editions, released Convergence (Inspired by Pollock’s painting) the jigsaw puzzle. It was a 340-piece puzzle that they promoted as “the world’s most difficult puzzle”. The impact of Pollock’s Convergence was evident in 1965 when hundreds of thousands of Americans purchased the jigsaw puzzle.

Jackson Pollock’s style of painting, as exemplified by Convergence, is an important, innovative development in the history of painting. At the time of the painting, the United States took very seriously the threat of Communism and the cold war with Russia. Convergence was the embodiment of free speech and freedom of expression. Pollock threw mud in the face of convention and rebelled against the constraints of societies oppressions. It was everything that America stood for all rapped up in a messy, but deep package. On that same note, some of Pollock’s works were even sponsored by the Congress for Cultural Freedom (an anti-communist advocacy group founded in 1950), which was backed by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) (Karmel, 1999). The CIA appreciated Pollock’s style, because it steered clear of social realism and overt political gestures. Pollock’s abstract work was hard to decipher, but his rebellious nature and expressions of freedom were clearly evident.

How To Make Your Lipstick Last All Day

Simply Audree Kate

SimplyAudreeKate.lips.

Lipstick has become a beauty staple for me the past few years. I wear it almost every day, and I get a lot of questions from friends and readers which types of lipsticks I wear and how I actually make it last all damn day. My friends are always pretty surprised that I can go most of the day, while eating and drinking, and still have my lips pretty much fully intact. So today, I am sharing  5 steps that will make you lipstick stand the test of time…or until you decide to wash your face. See below!

1. Exfoliate and moisturize
I wash my face every night, and I always make sure to exfoliate my lips because wearing lipstick as often as I do, it can easily dry out my lips. Some people use lip scrubs, but I found that using  a washcloth and water works just as well and is a cheaper, easier way…
