**REVIEW** Buram Flower Honey (with the comb!)

Okay, I have to admit that this isn't the usual type of 'review' but, since I do love honey, I had to share with you guys.

How can you not love this? I mean, if you like honey as much as I do.

Two things I don't know about this honey is what type of flower(s) it's from and how processed it is. I do know that this is an import from Turkey. From what I can tell from other online reviews, the brand is respected. From my own experience, I can definitely tell you that this tastes soooo good. (So, yes, +J.D. Hughes, I am eating the honeycomb! LOL)

You might remember that I talked about how super sweet Tupelo honey was. I only use it for certain things because of that. Funny thing is, this honey is just about as sweet as Tupelo, but it's a different type of taste. Tupelo is almost sugary-sweet and, to me, it has a wine-like taste. This one has a mellower sweetness. It's perfect for my honey-water drinks. Also, I finally tried it with some cheese. Nice. (I haven't done so yet, but can't wait to try this with goat cheese. Shout out here to one of my nieces-of-the-heart, Jamie!)

The whole reason I wanted to try this honey - because, Lord knows, I have enough stocked for now - is that it contains a piece of raw honeycomb.

From doing some general study, I know that honeycomb can be good but has to be eaten with some moderation. If you guys actually read my past posts, you know about the raw honey, honeycomb, and propolis.

I've had bits of honeycomb that come in the Really Raw honey that I buy, but I really love being able to break off a little gob of the comb and just.... Oh! It's tastes so good.

Some people in the Amazon reviews, questions and forums have talked about eating it all the time (and even swallowing it). I'm going to be more careful about that because of what I've mentioned before. What I've done since I got this comb is to chew all the flavor out of it, chew on the wax for a while (like gum), then spit it out.

One thing I've noticed since looking for honeycomb is that it can be pricey. That alone will keep me from eating too much. Plus, even a little piece of it is good enough. The fact that you get that crunchy bit of flavor is a nice morning pick-me-up. Chewing on the wax is soothing and I'm sure it's healthier than chewing regular gum. Since honey is so "anti" (anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-oxidant...), I think of chewing on the comb and the wax as being really healthy for the mouth. Maybe? Probably?

At any rate, if you like honey - or have been wanting to try honeycomb - I can tell you that I am in love with this one. For price-sake, I think it's better to purchase honey with some comb in it instead of buying just the comb. I don't think that I will be going through the comb that fast.

Like I said, this isn't a typical review, but I had to share it.


P.S.: You all should know that you should never give honey to kids under a year old. I was taught by my mom that you didn't give honey to kids under TWO years old. I only recently learned the reason for that. It can cause infant botulism. So do be careful. Also, if you are allergic to bees or bee products, stay away from pollen, propolis and other products of that nature. Just saying.

**REVIEW** Africa's Best Hair Mayonnaise

My hair is pretty happy right now. Between the shampoo and conditioner that I am so in love with and this new leave-in, I feel as if I'm wearing someone else's hair. Someone else with soft, moisturized and nourished hair.

I'm a little bit ticked off. Here, I've been using all kinds of pricier potions, lotions, curl butters and creams and this four dollar and sixty-four cent product is sitting right there on the shelf. I had noticed it before but passed on trying it. I've tried other "hair mayos" and they just coated my hair with a greasy, messy slime that I couldn't wait to rinse out. Not this stuff.

I'm too freaking tired to try doing a selfie - plus the light is horrible right now - but, I'll try to describe what my hair feels like. It's soft and moist without being wet (get Prince off your brains!). I can touch my hair and not leave prints on paperwork. It's just a perfect leave-in follow-up for my new shampoo and conditioner duo. I…

The Devil Is A Liar!

That's a saying from the old folks in the church. You know, something gets on your nerves, or someone does something they ought to be ashamed of, and old Sister Hattie would proclaim, "The Devil is a liar!" ***

My mother, though, was one of those people who didn't believe in blaming everything on the Devil. She'd remind me when something didn't go the way I'd planned, the Devil had nothing to do with it. "That was you being hard-headed," she'd tell me. "Hard head makes a soft behind." Then I'd get a lecture about using more common sense when making important decisions. Once, when I got my first credit card, I bought some kind of expensive purse. Just had to have it. Couldn't live without it. It had cute initials on it and "everybody" who was "anybody" had one. Mama watched me loading all my stuff into the purse and said, "Got everything in there but money, don't ya?" About a month or two lat…

**REVIEW** Dr Miller Miracle Tea (part 2 of 3) *UPDATED

(Part One of this review is found here.)

Final Update (Hah!) *I have been granted a refund by Amazon. I think I have to print a shipping label for return, but I'm not sure because I got 2 separate emails from them. One said that my refund would be processed upon a scan of the return label, and the other indicated that they have already processed my refund. I will be checking with them for clarification. At any rate, it's cool to know that Amazon has a customer's back in cases like this. Thank you, Amazon!

Also, I have to mention that the Seller of the Miracle Tea also reached out to check on my satisfaction with the product. I'm waiting to hear further. I will upgrade my Amazon review by a star just because they at least are making an decent customer service effort.

So, I tried the tea yesterday for the first time and I'm not even going to continue with it. At least not on the 3-day schedule I initially intended.

Like I mention…
