Summertime Treat

For Starbucks VIA Instant Refreshers in Strawberry Lemonade


What it is:

A naturally flavored instant beverage with green coffee extract.

Key Ingredients:

Cane sugar,white grape juice powder, green coffee bean extract, stevia leaf extract

How it looks/smells/tastes:

The lemonade has a pink hue to it and smells of strawberries. It tastes like a weak strawberry lemonade with some coffee undertones. I am glad that I cannot taste the “lavender”. Floral beverages are gross.

Why I like it:

I like the non-jittery energy boost from this drink. I dilute it in 32 oz of water and ice cubes. I drink it throughout the day at work and i don’t feel the afternoon slump or sluggishness. I enjoy the taste, but I want to try other flavors. After a week of these, I’m bored. I dislike the hibiscus flavor, so hopefully they make these in other flavors.

February Empties

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

I cannot believe that I only have a handful of empties this month. It seemed like a lot of things were close to being used up, but I guess not. Maybe, I’ll just have a massive empties next month. I’m getting my hair done next month as an early birthday present to myself which is exciting! I don’t get my hair done that often, so whenever I do, I get very excited. I dye my hair about once or twice a year. Last year, I didn’t dye my hair. I got highlights and low lights done in September of 2014 and that was the last time dye touched my head. So, my hair is a virgin again. Danielle couldn’t believe my hair was that dark. She’d never seen my virgin hair and she’s known me for 10 years. Anyways, only 5 empties this month.

Vitamin C

For Emergen C Super Orange Flavored Fizzy Drink Mix

What it is:

A flavored fizzy drink mix with 24 nutrients, 7 B Vitamins, antioxidants, electrolytes, and 1,000 mg of Vitamin C.

Key Ingredients:

Fructose, citric acid, natural orange flavors, malic acid, orange juice powder, silica, beta carotene, and a ton of other nutrients and vitamins.

How it smells/looks/tastes:

It smells really appetizing like orange juice and looks just like it as well. However, it tastes nothing like orange juice. It is basically a good for you alka seltzer, which I only like when I am sick. So, this wouldn’t be good for me to drink to try to be healthier.

Why I dislike it:

Let’s face it. I poured this down the sink after a few sips. I just couldn’t stand it. I may like these sort of things when I am sick and my nose is all plugged up, but otherwise than that, this is pretty gross. They try to market this as a healthy and enjoyable good for you drink. This was far from enjoyable and I really do not recommend it, unless you enjoy torturing yourself.
