Gnarly Avocado

Remember the creepy food from the yay avocado segment on Easy Light Sources Radio ep 2 ?

It turns out that Tamuredah DID have a copy of that old fruit!

She still had the picture! Give thanks for Cloud storage 😁

I haven’t even responded to Tam’s last text message yet bcuz I don’t want to open the text convo and see the picture.

Let me quickly psyche myself up & remind that I’m strong and brave and the avocado is a natural thing. It’s not that gross.

Here it is:


Yachak Yerba Mate drink review

The search for healthy energy drinks may have reached an apex. I can’t imagine anything surpassing these Yachak Yerba Mate drinks.


It’s not pronounced mate, it sounds like MAH-TAYE.

Herbal caffeine sources are not as potent as coffee beans. Although, coffee is a bean so it is a plant (score one for plant based lifestyles!). But it’s roasted, which makes it not very good, unfortunately.

As a life long coffee lover, the flavor of coffee just cannot be substituted for me. At least, I haven’t found a good substitute yet. (If you know of any please let me know!)

HOWEVER, I have found a good caffeine source that’s better than coffee.

Yes, I said better than coffee. It’s better because it’s healthier.

Sometimes coffee creates the jitters – especially when there is a sale where you can purchase a large coffee for only one dollar. That means, I’ll probably consume too much coffee. And sometimes I’ll feel weird afterward.

Okay, okay, this post is not supposed to be about coffee. Of course I can talk about this, at length, for pages and pages.

but, I won’t waste your time with my coffee love letter. This is what we are here to talk about:


This drink is wonderful. Aluminium packaging aside – I don’t have anything bad to say about this.

I purchased it from a rural 7-Eleven. The cans are kind of big and I was hesitant to drink the entire thing at one time. But I did.

It was glorious.

The natural caffeine in this drink was a smooth arrival. I felt lifted, naturally. Not jittery, not too hype. Natural is a perfect word for it.

It’s in a can but no, it’s not caffeinated. It is herbal flavored, especially the Infused Mate flavor (above).

But there are other flavors too, I was pleased to discover.


I was skeptical about this one because of the mint but it was good too. I really don’t have anything bad to say about these drinks. They’re refreshing and I’ve had a solid number of them over this summer πŸ™‚

Something else wonderful about Yerba Mate is that it is not dehydrating like coffee/green tea/black tea.

This one is my favorite flavor. It has real juice in it.


If you’re seeking a super sweet drink, this is not it. These are slightly sweet, kind of fruity (if it’s a berry flavor) and refreshing as hell, especially on a hot summer day!

So, yes. Try it.

Honorable mention to the OG Yerba Mate, Guayaki! They are now offering ready-made Yerba Mate drinks too.



Shea Butter Review [video]

Never has there been a shea butter as buttery as this one. At least, not in my experience. However it’s that experience that allows me to truly appreciate what Fragrance and Beyond has provided to the welcome market.

Other shea butters carry the name but in appearance they can be hard, drier, and possibly crumbly. Unprocessed white shea butter will fit that description and that is not what we have here.

What we have here is shea butter that is finally able to be compared to actual butter. Not the butter straight out of the fridge; this is the soft butter that can be found in a traditional butter bell. It spreads and melts perfectly on bread.

This kind of shea butter spreads gracefully onto your skin. Smoothness. The natural scents only add to the experience of the senses.

The two shea butters I received were in two flavors: morenga and cacao. They’re both luxurious and carry health benefits in addition to the already nutrient-dense raw shea butter.

It comes as no surprise that such quality products come from a company with a valuable message.

We are all beautiful and Go Fragrance and Beyond promotes equal beauty for all. True beauty is found on the inside of who you are.

Officially speaking, it is safe to say that Go Fragrance and Beyond shea butter (and body scrub) is an Easy Light Source.

Not only is it an easy way to take care of your appearance; Using these products promoted warm feelings of love and self-care within me as I indulged in them.

Recommended for everyone πŸ™‚
