TuMe Mango Flavored Tumeric Water: ★1/5
At Cafe M, the tumeric water is an almost taboo drink. We didn’t know if it really is bad, or just underrated, so we tried it out. We picked the mango one because it looked the most promising. It’s light yellow and has a thin, watery consistency. The mango taste is good, but the tumeric taste underlying the mango is, to be honest, pretty gross. The second sip was even worse, and the aftertaste didn’t seem to go away. Overall, we would not recommend this, but feel free to try it out- maybe you’ll like it!
Hydro Flask Water Bottle: ★★★★★5/5
I think many of you can relate to the struggle that is keeping your water cold all day, or coffee or tea hot. We tried out the Hydro Flask Water Bottle, in the 21 ounce size, because it is meant for camping and seemed super professional. Turns out, it does just what the company advertises: keeps your drink cold for 24 hours or hot for 12! Even if you put ice in, it will still be going strong the next day, and your hot drinks will still be steamy many hours later. And, they give 5% back to a variety of nonprofits, so you can feel good as you sip your icy beverage.
Candles: ★★★★★ 5/5
Quarter Four and finals are coming up, making it one of the most stressful periods at Marlborough. While studying, we find that it is very helpful to keep a candle burning in the background. The Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom and Honey candle (★★★★★) (200g) is pricey ($65) but worth the buy. It is a nice sweet and fresh smell that is good for the summer and spring time.
However, if you do not want to spend this amount of money on a candle, you should go for Voluspa candles (They range from $8-$40). We recommend the Tuberosa di Notte 2 wick tin candle ($16) and the Bella Sucre 3 wick tin candle ($18). The Bella Sucre (★★★★★) candle has a flowery
scent and is great for any season, especially fall.
The Tuberosa di Notte candle (★★★★★) has a subtle andsweet smell that will make any room cozy, which makes it the ultimate candle for the winter.
Raw Cookie Dough: ★★★★★5/5
Personally, I love to eat cookie dough but am always scared of getting salmonella from the raw eggs! When I stumbled upon this recipe for raw cookie dough without eggs, I had to make it. It’s delicious and will satisfy all your cookie dough cravings. (P.S. It’s not bad on ice cream, either. 😉
Projected light keyboard: ★1/5
Walking into Brookstone, this keyboard looked like something from the future. However, much to our disappointment, it doesn’t work well. (Even more disappointing since it’s $120!) It’s frustrating, and the letters don’t really type. Cool to look at, but definitely not something you should buy.
