Bluefishing: The Art of Making Things Happen
Bluefishing: The Art of Making Things Happen
What if you could learn the secrets to building multi-million dollar VIP relationships? What if you could be taught the rules of success by someone with a client list filled with some of the world's most high profile brands and celebrities? What if you could literally conjure up the impossible?

Bluefishing is a lean, rollicking, all killer-no filler playbook on what it takes to make dreams come true. If you want to learn how to get literally anything done, read this book. It takes you deep into the mindset and process of someone who specializes in making the impossible happen.

I had the privilege of briefly assisting Steve Sims on a few small projects some years back and it was one of those formative experiences that really taught me the importance of delivering beyond expectations as Steve does on a daily basis. What struck me most about Steve was his incredible humility despite having achieved so much in his life. In a world of outsized egos, Steve was the real deal - a generous mentor with a tremendous amount of knowledge to impart. I'll always be grateful to him for giving me my first shot and having the patience to teach me some much needed lessons in business and life.

If you buy one book this year, make it this one. Highly recommended in every sense.
Dirty Tricks : Inside Story of British Airways' Secret War Against Richard Branson's Virgin Atlantic
Dirty Tricks : Inside Story of British Airways' Secret War Against Richard Branson's Virgin Atlantic
This book may be over twenty years old and describe events earlier than that, but never consign anything to history. For anyone who lived through these times knowing now what was going on is illuminating indeed. Fascinating individual facts come to life: King's wife's sister was married to John Poulson, he not only of architectural fame but also of a corruption and bribery conviction fame with prison sentence to match. Poulson got out WW2 on medical grounds and King did not fight either but made lots of money from war contracts - funny that.

King and his sidekick Colin Marshall were of course brilliant businessmen but that was not enough. They did not want to compete on business acumen alone but by what can only be described as the intoxication of power and the primitive instinct to eliminate rivals - maybe the ultimate alpha male drive?

Thatcher of course looms large in this story and the irony is that without Thatcher there would have been no King and the only reason for them both was the stranglehold that British Unions had on the whole of society and the economy at that time. Perhaps then the ultimate villain of the piece is the Unions. Interestingly too at this period, some very dubious characters indeed inhabited the higher echelons of both BA and the Thatcher government.

Branson is the hero but there lies a further irony: where Branson once fought power and vested interests, genuinely for himself but also indirectly for the people whose lives were blighted by the same power and vested interests (people like King but also the Unions before him) he now has staggering wealth and a private island, amongst other things. But today, through his condemnation of the British desire to free itself from EU vested interests he appears to have aligned himself with the power/wealth/celebrity clique he once so opposed.

During these times there was no internet or social media, and to anyone who thinks fake news is something new - well what went on then was unimaginable. And for the public back then here was no way of either finding out or contributing useful facts. Power and the powerful ruled, against an informationally unarmed public. Social media today can be rightfully criticised for doubtful information both distributed and believed but it is just a different version of the same problem. Maybe the answer is for ordinary people to know the information power they now hold and use it wisely.

This book casts fantastic light not only on the past but very much on the present. Nevertheless, despite, or maybe because of, everything Virgin Atlantic remains a brilliant airline and a pleasure to travel with as set against (and this the final awful irony) BA's reversion to its pre-King reputation of Bl**dy Awful.
The Okeh, Columbia & RCA Victor Recordings - 1925-1933
The Okeh, Columbia & RCA Victor Recordings - 1925-1933
Having just finished listening to the 10th and final CD of this set, I have to say I'm disappointed -- not by the music, of course (except here and there), but by the quality of the remastering, especially in the crucial earlier recordings. These come across as rather dead and muffled, I assume due to heavy-handed noise reduction.

The 4-disc JSP set is considerably cheaper and has a noticeably more open sound. Admittedly it's also a bit noisier, but the trade-off is well worth it. This set covers roughly the same material as the first 5 and half CDs of the new Sony release. As for the last 4 and half CDs of the new set, there are certainly some gems, but not many. The two discs of RCA material in particular are rather weak. On the plus side, the remastering is better on this later material.

One other nit: track 17 of disc 8 is listed as "Love, You Funny Thing", when in fact it's "Lord, You Made the Night Too Long", one of the nicer 1932 performances.

Lately Sony has been doing a better job of remastering than they used to. The recent Robert Johnson is a good example. Sadly, the Armstrong set is not. But then it's not clear this is a remaster at all, as opposed to a re-packaging of remasters done 10-15 years ago.
Dylan & Petty - Live on the Radio '86
Dylan & Petty - Live on the Radio '86
Sehr interessantes Radio-Konzert von 1986.Bob Dylan wurde damals während der Tour von Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers auf der Bühne begleitet. Herausgekommen ist dabei tatsächlich so eine Art Mischung beider Hauptakteure, es werden bekannte Dylan und Tom Petty-Songs gespielt.Die Heartbreakers sind dabei sehr präsent und wie immer Klasse.Über den Live-Gesang von Dylan bei diesem Konzert kann ich mutmaßlich nur sagen, dass seine Stimme echt angegriffen und dünn wirkt, jedenfalls kein Vergleich beispielsweise zu dem Live-Album 'Before the Flood' von 1974, das ich zuvor gehört habe.Die Klangqualität der ersten 10 Titel ist wirklich super, die letzten 4 etwas schwächer, ich war trotzdem angenehm überrascht von dieser Aufnahme, die ja nie offiziell veröffentlicht wurde.Das unverwüstliche 'Knocking on heavens Door'ist hier zudem in einer sehr schönen Version zu hören-die Mundharmonika am Anfang ist einfach fantastisch.
Margaritaville Key West Frozen Concoction Maker with Easy Pour Jar and XL Ice Reservoir
Margaritaville Key West Frozen Concoction Maker with Easy Pour Jar and XL Ice Reservoir
We've had a Key West margarita maker for many years and it has operated flawlessly. So when we were looking for a present, we thought this would be the perfect gift. Unfortunately, it is just partially perfect.

The newest version of the Margaritaville Key West Frozen Concoction Maker (hereafter referred to as "margarita maker") has a few changes from our old one. On the good side, the blender lid now has a flip-up spout so that you don't need to take the lid off to pour a glass of deliciousness. I might be looking for some new lids for the two blender jars we have. Yeah, it is a little thing, but a good thing.

The downside, and why this review is only three stars, is that the new margarita maker jams. Those half-moon shaped pieces of ice from an icemaker are particularly problematic. You'll start a batch, it will shave the ice perfectly, and maybe you want your margarita a little thicker. Hit the "shave ice" switch and instead of satisfyingly loud ice-shaving noises, you just hear a loud "I'm jammed again" hum. So, open the ice reservoir, and poke and prod the ice at the bottom, all the while ignoring the "sharp blade" warning. In the end, I suspect someone got a laceration poking around in the older margarita maker like ours (which NEVER has jammed) and Margaritaville had to redesign the ice shaving mechanism to avoid lawsuits. Of course, now that you have to get your fingers down there in sharp-blade-land, you've increased the chance of cuts, and that doesn't make much sense.

Using smaller ice, like bagged ice from your local market, seems to cut down on the jams, but it does not eliminate them. I guess getting crushed ice from your refrigerator ice maker could also solve the problem.

So, while this margarita maker does make a tasty and well-blended beverage, it only does that when it works properly. Until the jamming issue is solved, only three stars.
Delta Roasted Ground Barley Coffee Substitute Orzo Cevada Caffeine Free 250g
Delta Roasted Ground Barley Coffee Substitute Orzo Cevada Caffeine Free 250g
This is a very good alternative substitute for the "Cafe Orzo Organic" that was pulled out of the market several months ago. In general, I find plain ground roasted barley a better substitute for coffee flavor than those that are blended with roasted chicory. This "coffee" has a very fine grind, equivalent to the grind that is used for Turkish coffee. The instructions come in Portuguese. Mix in with boiling water, stir and then filter. The caveat is that I haven't found a filter that works, because the grind is so fine. So, I just let the coffee grounds sit in my cup after I've stirred it, and drink as is (similar to the Turkish coffee method).
KRXNY 1000W Off Grid Pure Sine Wave Power Inverter 24V DC to 110V 120V AC 60HZ with LED Display US Socket
KRXNY 1000W Off Grid Pure Sine Wave Power Inverter 24V DC to 110V 120V AC 60HZ with LED Display US Socket
Honestly, I wasn't expecting too much from this inverter but I was pleasantly surprised with its performance. For my initial test, the DC input voltage was 29.7 volts which is very close to the upper limit. I plugged in an LED work light that drew about 3 AMPS from my battery. The lamp was flickering pretty badly at that point but when I reduced the input DC voltage to closer to 28 Volts the power smoothed out and I assume I was getting pretty clean power. I don't own an oscilloscope so I can't test the wave form.

The fan did not run all the time and that's a feature I did not expect. It runs very quietly with no circuit buzz. The panel meters are fairly accurate as well.

This is a nice little unit for the light-duty requirements I have and I bet will perform well under higher demand. I'm happy and would recommend it.
Storm Center

Been a while since I watched a Bette Davis movie. I think I've seen this one before. It should have a different title like, BURN THE BOOKS! Many people will not know the paranoia and fear that gripped this country, as well as others, when Communism reared it's head so publicly and ferociously across the globe. In the US and other countries, the movement was hoping to be embraced by most and ready, so they thought, to take the world by force. This little drama barely touches on how many lives and careers were destroyed by illegal kangaroo courts and hearings and lies and slanders - just in the US with a special attack within the film industry. I applaud Bette Davis for taking on this role in this film. It was very brave of her and her fellow actors and film makers to create this film. It shows a slice of how young and old can be so deeply damaged by irrational fears and tyranny in one little town over one little book about one little idea. We would have to get rid of all humans if we want to get rid of all bad ideas. Education is important and this film is educational.
BIC VCG11-BLACK Atlantis Original Retractable Ball Pen, Medium Point (1.0 mm), Black, 12-Count
BIC VCG11-BLACK Atlantis Original Retractable Ball Pen, Medium Point (1.0 mm), Black, 12-Count
I've relied exclusively on BIC Atlantis pens for more than 5 years after they replaced the Papermate Profile as my top choice in the $1.50 - $2.00 price category. Both are typically fine ballpoint pens. Unfortunately, the boxed dozen blue Atlantis pens purchased recently from Amazon are NOT the same wonderful pen I’ve experienced in the past. While appearing the same on the exterior, similarities end there.

Out of the box each must be forcibly scraped on paper to get the ink flowing. Much firmer pressure needs be exerted when writing than with the BICs I'm accustomed to. They do not write as smoothly and sometimes skip. Actual ink appearance varies from heavier to lighter shades. Every few inches a small bit of ink flakes off onto the writing surface. Finger it and you’ve got a smear on the page and an inky finger as well. As a writing experience, using these resembles that of the cheaper pens banks, hotels, businesses sometimes lend or hand out for free. Most of us understand what “cheap” gets you in a ballpoint pen. The price I paid for these was but a fraction of what the “Real McCoy" usually costs. Alas ... Sometimes if it seems too good to be true ... it is.

Added 6/21/20 - A week after submitting this review I dared place one of these in a shirt pocket enroute to the local library. Big mistake. Over the next few hours, unbeknown to me, all the ink drained out of the pen, through the pocket and onto my bare arm, leaving a dark stain about the size of a nickel in one of my favorite shirts. End of the road for BICs. A shame because I suspect these aren’t even genuine. I will cease buying them completely. The ones currently owned will be stored in a leakproof tray. I’ll attempt to use them up while at home. As for anything I’d carry along out of the house, I’ve ordered a pack of my old favorite Papermate Profiles.

Uni Ball Jetstream Extra Fine & Micro Point Click Retractable Roller Ball Pens Rubber Grip Type 0.38mm - Black Ink - 5 Body Color Value Set
I bonded with my coworker over these pens. They are super-fine point and very high quality. The Uni Jetstream ink is really a wonder to behold. You can geek out about this stuff if you think too hard about it. They took a ballpoint pen and made it write as smoothly as gel, but without as much wasted ink and without all the mess of gel. This ink dries super-fast. Jetpens actually carries some similar pens, but I like getting them on Amazon because they come in these cute packs with different body colors. The price is currently fair, based on the quality of product you get. All the pens are black ink, which is what I need for my work (spend half the day writing in a medical chart, 5-7 days a week). They've held up really well. Some sticky stuff got gummed up on the inside of one, and I thought it was broken until I opened it up and saw it wasn't the pen's fault, I had just dumped it in a messy bag and some goop had gotten in there (eew). Cleaned it off and it worked fine again.

MABLE Kid's Bamboo Toothbrush
MABLE Kid's Bamboo Toothbrush
Toothbrush didn't last at all. The bristles were too soft in my opinion. Bristles started to wear and stick out at weird angles within 2 weeks. Toothbrush will last less than one month instead of the usual 3 months that the ADA recommends you swap out a brush! The bristles didn't even outlast the return period.

The wood didn't mold. I wiped it down after use, but due to the bristle issue didn't use it for that long.

I tried a kids brush because some zero wasters recommend it for people with smaller mouths. I found that to be true, and really liked the sized of the brush.

The paint means it's not exactly home compostable, and if you don't mind the paint, the taper means it'll take a bit longer to break down. However, the taper could help kids with dexterity issues so this may be good for little kids. The base did stand on its own and that was nice and very hygenic.

The brush arrived in brown cardboard, with no glue or tape or plastic sleeve, so they get an "A" on packaging. I was very pleased with the packaging.
Deadpool 2
Deadpool 2
After the success of the first Deadpool movie, the wise cracking fourth wall breaking hitman gets a sequel. Which will not make a lot of sense to those who haven't seen the first film. If you haven't, why are you reading this? Go and watch it. Then come back.

After the end of the first film, can Wade and Vanessa live happily ever after? Would they have a movie if so? Fate leaves Deadpool looking for purpose. The X Men might not be the answer. A mysterious boy with special powers and a time travelling killer called Cable [Josh Brolin] might be...

Sequels are tricky things. People want the same. But different. But there's enough mileage and flexibility in this format to allow for enough variety to make it click. And when you're throwing gags at the screen at such a rate, most are likely to connect.

It's a little stronger plot wise than the first film. It is of course not going to have the freshness and originality of that, but there is still enough great fun and good jokes to make it an entertaining watch. With a bigger cast some characters don't get as much to do as you might like, but Josh Brolin makes a very good Cable, Zazie Beetz is a superb Domino and really deserves her own franchise. And Peter's pretty cool too.

There are some bad reviews of this out there, so it might be a matter of subjective opinion. But if you loved the first film, give this a go. As to whether you should watch to the end of the credits, didn't you learn anything from what you were told at the end of that one????

The disc begins with the fox logo, but then goes into the menu with no ads or trailers.

Although the box just says English for subtitles and languages, I checked the disc, and it's actually:

Languages: English. English audio description. Russian. Ukrainian.
Subtitles: English. Russian. Danish, Swedish. Finnish. Estonian. Latvian. Lithuanian. Ukrainian.

Extras: A three minute long gag reel. If you've seen one gag reel, you've seen them all. People doing silly dances and pulling faces and the occasional outtake that raises a slight smile. This is no different.

Deadpool's fun sack 2: contains a stills gallery. This is pretty funny with an interesting collection of items and posters and worth a look.

And videos. Roughly forty mins in total, which can be watched individually or all together.

Mansfield Park Season 1
Mansfield Park Season 1
I understand that the novel Mansfield Park can be slow. But prepare to put on safety goggles for how fast this zooms through the plot, lightly skimming the surface of events, to arrive at a screeching halt midway through the movie. Trips to the country, the bumbling Mr. Rushworth, the seduction of Mariah and Julia, Fanny's awkwardness, timidity, and purity, the attic room, and several characters are all cut completely from the adaptation. The main turning point of the novel - the play - happens within the first 20 minutes and is not adequately explained. Sir Bertram becomes a caricature villain, Lady Bertram has a romantic's heart instead of the needy, insipid aunt we all have, and sadly the character of Mrs. Norris really only gets in a few good zingers, but her humor and acerbic nature is completely lost. Edmund might have been a cardboard cutout, and I literally watched this movie for Billie Piper and Hayley Atwell (who coincidentally became friends during filming) and they both massacred the characters. Fanny's natural soft beauty, shyness, embarrassment, duck-footedness was completely steamrolled by the giggling, puppy chasing, loud and blonde Piper. Mary Crawford, seductress, always battling with her inner good nature and the 'evils of society' became a flat, loud-mouthed, completely inappropriate portrait of a harlequin. If Mary Crawford had acted that way in the book, to be sure they would never be allowed at Mansfield. Sisters Mariah and Julia are hardly on screen enough to tell them apart; Henry Crawford fumbles through a few attempts at seduction before cutting to the chase and there's never a hint he might have changed his ways. All in all, extremely disappointing and lackluster performances by both leading ladies, though their cleavage game is strong for a period piece.
Final Hour (Novella)
Final Hour (Novella)
Mikani Hisoka-O'Brien, our protagonist, is a generous woman, a beautiful local surfing legend carrying a secret--her ability to know people's darkest secrets or most dreadful desires with a touch, an isolating gift And there's handsome Pogo, the occasional boatsitter who hides his high IQ-- and the one guy from whom Mikani cannot sense awful darkness or perversity, a guy without greed or envy, happy to slowly move toward romance with Mikani.

But Mikani, on a normal day, has things turn abnormal: she has a sudden encounter with evil. The evil is outwardly beautiful: "a hot blond psycho." A hyper-narcissist. And Mikani learns from that gifted touch of hers that a woman is in grave peril. Mikani and Pogo act on this chilling insight, out to save the victim who is fated to die if there is no intervention. And so begins the terrifying journey of this very short thriller. (Of course, we have a darling doggie, because, after all this is Koontz.)

As is this author's wonderful characterization trademark, the heroine is a good person we root for, as is her ally, and the villain is REALLY bad. Good vs evil in graceful, metaphor-jammed Koontzian prose. The setting is richly described, another thing we expect of Mr. K. He lets you "see" the sky and sea and paths of this oceanside town.

Expect a twist, right?

I'll add that I happen to have enjoyed the romance between Mikani and Pogo. With her gift, every touch is something fraught with risk. Like Stormy and Oddie, it's lovely to see two good folks find each other and find love.

Very brief but very good story that sets us up for the December Koontz release: Ashley Bell (which I preordered months ago). Like this story (and the other associated one), it's set in Newport Beach. Pogo from this one will show up in the novel. Sadly, it seems that Mikani won't.

Enjoy!

"Cowboy Resurrected." Pregnant Sophia Carranza flees her Mexican home to escape from her ex-fiancé ruthless Antonio Martinez and his cartel. Still grieving the deaths of his family, former Wild Oak Canyon Sheriff Thorn Drennon, now works undercover for Hank Derringer's Covert Cowboys, Inc. He captures the illegal crosser who he knows needs to be left with the authorities. Instead Thorn follows his instincts and vows to keep her safe even if it jeopardizes his mission and job. He soon realizes he underestimated the cost as the monster and his horde pursue her; placing his life and eventually his heart at risk.

"Killer Body." In Webb County, former Special Ops soldier Dawson Gray still feels remorse and guilt for not being there when his wife and baby died. He loathes his Lone Star assignment to protect amnesiac Savvy Jones, a murder suspect as he does not want the responsibility. However, as hit men target Savvy while she tries to remember killing the son of a drug cartel kingpin and shooting herself in the head, Dawson risks his life to keep her safe.

Though the males' second chance theme is identical, the getting there differs even as both entries are exciting romantic suspense. Cowboy Resurrected is the fourth CCI thriller (see Bodyguard Under Fire, Taking Aim and Triggered) while Killer Body is a reprint of a Lone Star Agency tale.

I received a copy of Alice in Wonderland from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Most of us have heard of orread Lewis Carroll's Alice In Wonderland during our childhood. Now Pat Olski has brought the characters from the story to life for us. From Alice to the Cheshire Cat to the Mad Hatter, there is even instructions for recreating the Tea Party. The patterns are easy to understand and complete. Whether just making a few of the characters of all the available props you can use to illustrate the story, which is included in the book, to new readers. You will fall in love with Alice In Wonderland all over again. My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.

Wool Dryer Balls by Smart Sheep 6-Pack, XL Premium Reusable Natural Fabric Softener Award-Winning
Wool Dryer Balls by Smart Sheep 6-Pack, XL Premium Reusable Natural Fabric Softener Award-Winning
I bought these dryer balls as a spur of the moment decision and have been very happy that I did. They are solid but soft and about the size of a large orange or small grapefruit. They are a permanent fixture in my dryer and have helped keep my laundry soft and unless I overload the dryer, they really do help reduce the dry time. I don't think they are as helpful in reducing dryer time for say, a queen/king size comforter because the dryer is simply too full for the dryer balls to bounce around much. Yes, they bounce around and do add some additional noise to the dryer cycle, but because they are soft, it's not like you've got a tennis shoe rattling around or anything, but it will be a little louder and you will hear them bumping around.

An added and unexpected bonus is that these wool balls attract dog hair away from my clothing! On any given day, I have a minimum of 4 Samoyeds (very hairy white dogs) and 2 white-ish cats who are all dead set on depositing as much fur on my clothing as possible. So I know about hairy clothes! They don't leave my laundry fur-free but there is a noticeable reduction since I started using them.

I have also added scented oils to the dryer balls with good success. While it's probably best to not use heat with essential oils, I wasn't using it as a therapeutic use, but more just to try out how well the scents would transfer. It works pretty good and I had scents last through multiple loads of laundry. Just be careful that the oils get absorbed well by the wool before drying or you'll be distributing actual oils onto your laundry and not just passing along the smell.

Overall, I love these things. Just know that they can get all tied up in laundry and I "lost" one for a while because it was wrapped up inside a fitted sheet and I hadn't noticed it.
Power Rangers Legacy Mighty Morphin 5-Inch Armored Red Ranger Action Figure
Power Rangers Legacy Mighty Morphin 5-Inch Armored Red Ranger Action Figure
This is/was the first Mighty Morphin Power Rangers LEGACY figure (outside the hotselling Movie ones) I have ever laid my ongoing collecting hands on and the first to have of figures of the Rangers from the TV series. Considering these figures are in the same sculpt and scale as the Action Hero molds that started with Super Megaforce (the same year and time these came out)'s super mega stressful-to-have-but-can't toyline, it replicates nicely well to how the Red Ranger looked with the Dragon shield on the show. Although I own the original SMF rendition of the MMPR Red Ranger already since Christmas 2014, I have been chasing to get this one for 2 years and I'm happy I have it because I was not going to at the time of its selling to spend $40 or more on this and the rest. 2 years has passed and I've waited this long for the prices on these things go down very bit.

- Dragon Shield does not come off. It's molded on to the figure, just like on the Green/White Ranger figures with their shields. THIS ISN'T THE '90s ANYMORE PEOPLE! Move along.
- Weapons have been painted unlike the the Super Megaforce MMPR Red figure's version which was all red.
- "5 inches tall.
- Head and body sculpt is the same as the Super Megaforce MMPR Red's figure's version.
- Greatly painted, and nice color balanced.
- This was a SDCC Exclusive prior, later sold everywhere (Toys R Us, Amazon, BBTS, and now Walmart - as of 2016).
Spigen Ultra Hybrid Back Cover Case Designed for iPhone 12 | iPhone 12 Pro - Crystal Clear
Spigen Ultra Hybrid Back Cover Case Designed for iPhone 12 | iPhone 12 Pro - Crystal Clear
I had used Ultra Hybrids in the past and in comparison, the iPhone 12 model is very different. Most notable change were the button coverings. Previous Ultra Hybrids had the TPU material molded around the buttons allowing for a very responsive and tactile click that emulates the feeling you are clicking on the button itself. The button coverings on the iPhone 12 Ultra Hybrid instead goes over the buttons and creates a very flat and flushed look with the rest of the phone. They also added these unappealing button indicators on top of the buttons (+,-, and PWR) like their customers don’t know what their buttons already do and need to look at the side for guidance. The flatter buttons also created a more unnatural clicking feeling where it feels like like you’re pushing the side of the phone instead of clicking a button. Taking a screenshot just feels uncomfortable trying to push both sides of the phone while changing the volume with using my right hand had often resulted in accidentally hitting the power button instead of the side of the phone for support.

Another flaw with this case compared to my previous experience is it is missing a leg on the corner where the camera bump is that’s allows for flat table usage. The iPhone 12 Ultra Hybrid comes with three legs out of the box as an attempt to raise the phone to protect the camera but fails to slightly raise the camera side leaving the phone rocking when you use it flat on the table.

I have had good experiences with Spigen Ultra Hybrids in the past but this case is a step on the wrong direction. Even their iPhone 12 Quartz Hybrid (similar case but with a tempered glass back) has preserved the original tactile button cutouts. I am hoping for a refreshed version 2 reverting some of the major changes they’ve introduced into this years design.

I am a coffee person... NOT a tea person, but I wanted something sweet and relaxing before bed (a healthy alternative to replace my hot chocolate habit.) I LOVE THIS! No sweeteners needed, nothing, it is delicious! Also I chose this one specifically because I've read these ingredients are good to help my hormones; I have PCOS so I am a little too high in androgens and mints and licorice are supposed to help w that. 2 birds 1 stone with this tea, I highly recommend. Smells like Double-mint gum and leaves a fresh minty taste in your mouth. Cant say enough good things abt this product :)

Soy adicta al regaliz, y con esto del confinamiento me cuesta encontrar, así que lo compre por aquí. Me encanta!!! Normalmente suelo comprarme regaliz sin azúcar, pero decidí darme un capricho esta vez.
Es medio blando, lo cual me encanta.
El sabor el de siempre. Y escogí la talla M pq me gusta que sean finos.
La caja es enorme 800 gramos ni más ni menos, así que tendré regaliz por un buen tiempo 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
