Keep on Hookin' in the Free World

DAMN I hope that works.
I have... drumroll... G.R.A.D.U.A.T.E.D. from college. So, like, emphasis on the "age" in "College age white girl." Weird as hell.

In case there's too many dysfunctions with my internet or yours and that video doesn't work, here's the gist of the review:

Starbuzz - Pomberry
DELICIOUS! A very berry flavor tempered with that hard-to-define attempt at Pomegranate that virtually every company has made. I can't argue. I love this flavor. Little tough to get wicked huge clouds though. Alas.
4.5/5 stars for Starbuzz Pomberry. Yay!

Missed you.

I will make no excuses or pretenses about my prolonged absence. I'll only say, it's good to be back. And hi, McLane.

Here's a butt-ton of recipes and reviews I thought I'd already posted but haven't apparently!

HookaH-HookaH - Acai Berry
In the box: Not overtly fruity on the nose. Much like white grape, it's kind of rocking a fermented feel. Very unique, I'll give it that!
In the bowl: It's actually very floral. Like a rose? I can actually tolerate? It makes me see what everyone likes about a good rose! Acai is mellow but present, fruity/berry-y but not fake. Tasty and wonderful. Also probably one of my favorite favorite mixers. I should get a gigantic tub of this, stat. And you. should. too.

5/5 stars for H-H ACAI!!!

Orange + Acai + Margarita = The Everything Fruit!
Blackberry + Acai + Hazelnut = Purple Haze!

Becky's Shisha Kitchen!
Recipies of Delicious Smoking

Another mild and delicious chill-out flavor from the kitchen, this one is. The seven spice, I'll reiterate, is much different than when I first opened it. The nuttiness is really complimented by the spice amalgamation. After a bit of burn time it actually started tasting like chai. Nudge nudge, H-H.
1/2 Hazelnut + 1/2 7-Spice = Ha7elnut!

This one's not worthy of a name
Having in mind that my H-H Chai is too licoricey, and mintyness is the perfect foil to licoriceyness, I thought that equal parts Chai and Spearmint would be great. This was a grievous miscalculation on my part. Chai is so overpowering, I didn't taste the mint at all... so there was no coolness or, I don't know... enjoyability? If you're into this kind of thing, I would recommend either saving your Spearmint or messing with ratios.
1/2 Chai + 1/2 Spearmint = Something Becky hates

Mint Paddy's Day
DESSERT HOOKAH DAY. Have I got a sweet after-dinner class act for you. Cappuccino with Irish cream mixed and packed, with mint sprinkled over top is the smoothest of the smooth. Rich, creamy,
1/2 Cappuccino + 1/2 Irish Cream + Mint (on top) = Mint Paddy's Day!

There's nothing much written on this page, except for a big banner at the top that says "Knee-Deep in Cooch Napkin." Basically, this choco-mint mix tastes exactly like you'd expect and want it to. Mix credit goes to Mike Frye! :)
1/2 Chocolate + 1/2 Spearmint = York!

Now get outta my kitchen.

See you later, Internets, I am at a party! <3
