Black Latte is A Tasty Drink

I want to tell you a short story about my journey of losing weight (capsula de slabit). 

I am 34 and a month ago I had 165 pounds. I was feeling ugly, my clothes were large and long, I had difficulties in making new friends and I was single.

From drinking 3 cups of coffee per day to drinking one glass of Black Latte

I want to start from the beginning. I love coffee and nothing compares to the cigarette next to it. It was my ritual for years to wake up in the morning and prepare a huge cup of coffee with condensed milk, sugar, syrup, cream and sprinkles.

In case you wondered if that was all of it, the answer is no. After drinking my cup of calories I used to cook an unhealthy (but delicious) breakfast: pancakes with syrup, toast with margarine and one fried egg and some muffins at the top of it. 

After eating my breakfast I used to drink one more cup of coffee, and in case I was getting bored during the day, a cup of coffee with chocolate syrup and sugar sprinkles was my treat. 

When I remember how awfully I used to eat I wonder how I am not obese. 

It was not in my program to start losing weight, even if my self-esteem was low and I didn’t feel pretty at all. I had my food that provided me a high level of dopamine. 

But, one day I came across to a forum Black Latte. I read some reviews and people were saying that it has a great taste and it makes you lose weight. 

To be honest, what convinced me to buy it was the part with delicious taste, but it turned out to be a perfect replacement for my hypercaloric cup of coffee with cream and sprinkles. 

I remember even now that was Wednesday when I started to drink Black Latte. It all started as a game, an experiment through which I wanted to see if I can quit drinking so much coffee.

Black Latte is prepared so easily. All you need is a glass of hot water. Mix 2 spoons of Black Latte with water and that is it. 

After I drank it my appetite was low. I didn’t feel the necessity of eating breakfast, but I knew that I had to. 

Only when I thought about the amount of sugar from pancakes, the fatness from margarine and the refined flour from muffins it made me feel sick and threw up. So, I started to eat healthy: a fruit (banana, apple, orange, avocado or something else) with oat porridge, boiled eggs with a salad, avocado toast, berry and yogurt smoothies or fruit salad. 

After eating my breakfast I didn’t feel the need for a second glass of Black Latte or coffee as in the past. 

And that’s how I managed to give up 3 cups of coffee a day. 

I started to enjoy my life because of Black Latte

After 15 days I lost 6 pounds.  

I wanted to see if other people  had the same results, so I accessed „black latte pareri”. I was impressed because there was people telling that Black Latte has helped them losing 20 pounds in a very short time without making changes in their eating habits. 

There is even a Black Latte forum where women are telling their stories with this amazing product. 

For me, Black Latte was a miracle. I didn’t want to lose weight because I thought that my life is all right, but it was not.

Now, after a course of 30 days with Black Latte I feel alive. I lost 15 pounds and I started to love myself. I changed my wardrobe, I began eating more vegetables, fruits, fish and steak. 

Why I recommend Black Latte?

First of all, Black Latte is 100% natural, with charcoal, dry coconut milk, omega-3 and l-carnitine. It is very safe for your health and besides that, it has an incredible taste.

If you want to make it tastier, you can replace the how water with hot almond milk or other nut milk. 

It gives you the feeling of long-term satiety and offers you the motivation to continue eating healthy due to the results that appear very quickly. Personally, it shaped my body very harmoniously and I had full energy every day.

It’s a good product, and without it I probably wouldn’t have been able to make any changes in my life.

Sugarfina Care Packages

Going back to school this year is different from every other year. Instead of loading up on pencils, notebooks, markers and erasers, students are logging into computers every morning to attend virtual versions of their classes. Teachers are also preparing in a way they’ve never had to. Online lesson plans and zero face-to-face contact are making it more difficult for teachers to engage with students.

Sugarfina, a luxury candy store specializing in candy for grown-ups, recognizes that struggle. Accordingly, they have put together care packages for anyone in need of a little bit of sweetness during this time.

The care package includes Sugarfina specialties like Peach Bellini gummies, Birthday Cake Caramels, Rainbow Bears, Pink Sparkle Pops, Cold Brew Bears, Peanut Butter Milkshake malt balls, Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels and Ice Cream Cone gummies.

Sugarfina is also giving away one of these care packages every day from August 17 to August 31. They’re encouraging Instagram users to nominate someone deserving of a special treat by posting a video with #TreatItForward.

Scott LaPorta, the CEO of Sugarfina, said Sugarfina was inspired by people sending each other candy during the quarantine period.

“Whether you’re treating a classmate, hard-working teacher, first responder, or fellow homeschool parent, this set is the perfect gift to put a smile on their face,” LaPorta said.

Sugarfina will also take entries into the “Thinking of You Sweepstakes” between August 20 and August 31. Anyone looking to share a $2,500 care package with a loved one can enter right here.

The standard care packages are $24 by themselves or $28 with a hand-written note and are available online or in Sugarfina boutiques.

Savoring the Moment: Five Coffee Rituals from Around the World

Believe it or not, people around the world have their very own quirky or interesting coffee rituals. If you are a fan of coffee, check out how other nations enjoy their favorite hot drink. Here are five of the most interesting coffee rituals from around the world.

Ethiopia

This country loves coffee so much that it has actually been named as the Ethiopians national drink. To make coffee here, first you need to add sugar, followed closely by coffee and hot water. When making a coffee in the home or in a restaurant, three cups are usually made and then each of these servings are named. One example of this is awol, tona, and baarka. In Ethiopian this translates as “to be blessed.”

Italy

Italy is one of the most well-known countries for coffee making and many of the best cups of coffee originate from here. The most popular coffee in Italy is the espresso, which is a single or double shot of coffee usually consumed on its own in a small cup. Usually the Italians drink this while standing too. In Italy, you should not order a coffee late at night, especially a cappuccino. If you were to order one of these while out, it would not be considered the norm, as these should only be enjoyed in the morning according to the Italians.

Turkey

The Turkish love their coffee just as much as the rest of the world and usually serve black coffee after a meal. Just like many of the other countries here, Turks enjoy their coffee strong and it is usually accompanied with a Turkish candy. If you do visit here, be careful of ordering a double shot as the coffee really is strong, especially when compared to the coffee of the U.S. Another tradition in Turkey is reading the coffee grounds once the cup of coffee has been drunk.

France

Coffee and croissants go hand in hand in France and is a popular French breakfast choice. Coffee’s here are usually served in a huge mug and it is polite to hold the mug with two hands. The French also do not like those who order whipped cream on the coffee, or those who order flavored syrups to go in their coffee and in some cafés; this can be seen as an insult. Coffee here is often served after dessert regardless of time.

Spain

One of the most popular coffee drinks in Spain is named cortado. This coffee is based on the famous espresso, but warm milk is then added to the coffee in order to reduce its acidity. Coffee is often drunk at breakfast as well as after siesta. In Spanish, this time after siesta in which the locals drink coffee is called La Merienda and translates to snack time.

Making Your Own Perfect Coffee

If you are a coffee lover, then being able to make the perfect cup of coffee in your own home is essential. Coffee machines have become increasingly popular around the world to help people make a barista style coffee in the comfort of their own kitchen. Nespresso machines are one of the leading brands and these Gourmesso pods come in a variety of flavors. They fit perfectly in Nespresso machines and allow you to make the best coffees without having to visit your local Starbucks.

Each country has a different way in which they consume coffee, and many countries prefer to have their coffees strong and black. This is because farmers take pride in making the best coffee grounds, and these flavors should be appreciated on their own.

5 Ways to Live Well for Less

A simple, economic lifestyle doesn’t necessarily require sacrificing your quality of life, in spite of people often mistakenly believing that one is almost synonymous with the other. It is perfectly possible to combine minimalism with intelligent indulgence, and live well for less. In regard to how that can be achieved, we will now discuss some of the easy to adopt methods next.

Rent, Don’t Buy

When you rent instead of buying, you save more money, since you do not lose out on the depreciating cost of real estate in the US and there’s nothing holding you back from moving when you need to.

Don’t Pay High Rent Unnecessarily

Renting is a better and cheaper option than buying, which is a financial and practical truth, but you can save even more by moving to a low rent section of the city. If you like the location, just move to a smaller apartment and you will be paying less, without sacrificing the location.

Sometimes, we make the mistake of paying more money for space we hardly even use, which is common, but unwise nonetheless.

Don’t Give Up on the Coffee, but Save on the Pods

The coffee machine is a little bit of luxury that some people won’t likely be willing to give up. Even if they do give up on the coffee machine because of the exorbitant prices of the original coffee pods, it won’t be a sacrifice that will make you feel like you are living well for less!

As this list is all about finding cheaper and sometimes better ways to live well by spending less money, we have a brilliant solution for you. If you have a Nespresso machine, for example, just choose to buy Nespresso capsules from a third party instead, and you could be saving about 40% on the pods!

Gourmesso makes espresso, lungo, decaf, and flavored coffee pods for the Nespresso machines (except the VertuoLine models), which will save you a fortune in the long run, but you won’t have to sacrifice on the quality of your coffee at all.

Don’t Shop from Expensive Brands

Gucci, Prada and Ralph Lauren products are exorbitantly expensive, but do not provide any real additional value to the customer, aside from vanity.

You would be surprised to know that almost all of the products which these brands release with their stamp on them are actually made in tiny sweatshops that you will never even hear about. The same products, without the customizations exclusive to those brands are often sold by their suppliers at a tiny fraction of the price!

You don’t have to buy rags and unbranded clothing of course, but by simply avoiding the big brands, and supporting some of the local, less popular ones, you will be able to shop more for less money.

Shift to a More Practical Car

The muscle cars and the sports cars have their appeal, so to say they are pointless would be a lie. Unlike branded clothing from luxury brands, you do actually get better performance and the wow factor from these beasts for sure.

However, in a practical scenario, these cars are definitely more about vanity than practicality. It’s okay when you have that mindset and the money to spend on a car that will burn through fuel like hot knife through butter, but as we are talking about living well for less, why not shift to a more fuel-efficient and comfortable car instead?

They cost less to buy, maintain and refuel, immediately making them a better choice for living with less, but without really sacrificing on anything practical.

There’s just so much more you can change and adopt to save money, without having to let go of your favorite things in life. These were just five, but they should be able to give you an idea of how to do the same in any other sphere of your lifestyle as well.

Beabadoobee Releases EP

Beabadoobee Releases EP Loveworm via Dirty Hit Records

PRESS HERE To Listen

PRESS HERE To Listen To “Disappear”

London based bedroom-pop songwriter Beabadoobee has released her sophomore EP, Loveworm, on Dirty Hit Records. Billboard, who released a track by track of Loveworm, highlighted Bea Kristi’s “languid vocals, pointed songwriting chops and jangly, grunge-inspired sound” on the new EP, which you can PRESS HERE to stream.

“This EP Loveworm was inspired by all the music I listened to during a hard time in my life,” Bea told Pigeons and Planes who named her one of the Best New Artists for April. “It helped me forget about everything. From The Moldy Peaches to Pavement to Daniel Johnston, music was always a means of escapism for me. I wanted to make songs that could belong to one of my playlists. Something people can dance and cry to. The songs on Loveworm pretty much sum up what I was feeling at the time… love is hard, complicated and I’m pretty fragile. Sometimes it’s hard to balance that with school and music but I guess writing the songs for the EP helped me a whole lot. And I hope it helps some people out too.”

Born in Manilla and raised in London, Bea Kristi began recording music as Beabadoobee in 2017. Her first track, “Coffee” gathered hundreds of thousands of streams in a matter of days, through a fan-uploaded video. Since then, her songs have amassed millions of streams between her own self-released recordings and her debut EP, Patched Up (released via Dirty Hit) which features “If You Want To” and “Dance With Me“, and has received support from Noisey, Nylon, The Fader, Bustle and The Guardian, amongst others with NME already crowning her as one of their 100 essential artists to watch in 2019.

Kahlúa Espresso Martini

KAHLÚA INTRODUCES ITS FIRST EVER RTD ESPRESSO STYLE MARTINI: A REINVENTED CLASSIC COCKTAIL IN A CAN, EQUIPPED WITH SMART NITROGEN, WIDGET TECHNOLOGY

Pop, Pour, Sip… the great taste of the classic Espresso Martini cocktail, now in a ready-to-drink can launches with ASMR-Style video

Kahlúa, the number one coffee liqueur in the U.S. and hero ingredient in your favorite cult cocktails, brings consumers the next iteration of a classic with the launch of the Kahlúa Espresso Style Martini ready-to-drink (RTD) cocktail.  Kahlúa Espresso Style Martini RTD is a twist on the classic Kahlúa cocktail made with coffee…and in a can. It’s the perfect blend of Kahlúa, coffee and Vodka, complete with the signature creamy foam reminiscent of a just-made Espresso Martini cocktail.

How does it work? The unique can is fitted with a smart nitrogen widget, which forces bubbles to the surface as soon as the can is opened to form the distinctive creamy foam of the classic cocktail. To serve, pour into a glass and enjoy immediately (with a friend, of course). To help illustrate for consumers at-home, Kahlúa tapped in to the trend of ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response) to create the Kahlúa ASMR-tini depicting the pop and foam intensity of the product.

To celebrate the launch, Kahlúa is getting out of the glass and in front of the microphone with an ASMR-tini video to help consumers experience the pop and fizz that goes into every can.

“The launch of the Kahlúa Espresso Martini RTD and our ASMR-tini campaign celebrates a really exciting time for the brand,” said Troy Gorczyca, Kahlúa Brand Director. “As consumers continue to ask for high quality cocktails with added convenience, our take on the Espresso Martini offers an innovative and simple way to enjoy one of our favorite classic cocktails. Plus, it delivers consistent flavor and quality every time you pop and pour.”

The Kahlúa Espresso Style Martini is launching nationwide at select retailers this Spring 2019. The Espresso Martini will be sold in packs of four and each can is 4.5% alcohol by volume (ABV).

For more information about Kahlúa, please visit www.kahlua.com and check out Kahlúa on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter by following @Kahlua. Kahlúa ASMR-tini video and assets can be found via link here.
