ToeTalk Mantra Socks in Be Here Now I’ve been looking to get socks like these ~ this have a non-slip grip on the bottom of the sock, which means you get better traction, balance and stability when doing Yoga. Also, my floors are wooden and in the wintertime, I wear socks ~ which I slip and slide around the home (it is great for cleaning the floors!! haha). I also wanted to wear these just around the home as well. This was a variation in the box ~ you could get Be Here Now (which reminds me of the Oasis song), Find Your Zen or Namaste. I received Be Here Now in variation Alysas Mantra II, which has colorful circles of coral, lavender and blue with the inscription of “Be Here Now” against a black background and the underside has lavender circle grips. The inside band around the ankle is also coral. These socks are really comfortable and they have a reinforced heel and toe bed. This has a hand linked toe seam for comfort and it has a close fit, due to its stretchiness. It is made from 73% combed cotton, 25% polyamide and 2% elastic.
You can machine wash these, just turn them inside-out and then tumble low in the dryer. They have some really beautiful designs at ToeTalk and coordinated the grip design with the overall design ~ if you get a lotus design, the grips are also a lotus design. I purchased a couple more of them, as I know I will use them quite a bit ~ these also can be worn as socks with shoes as well.

Description: Be Present. There is no better time to experience life than right now, in the moment. Pose a moment longer, inhale a little deeper. Believe your mantra. Be your mantra. Toe Talk creates high-quality socks for women who embody the mind and body connection. Embrace the control and safety of stylish nonslip socks, and put your mantra front and center with Toe Talk. Total consciousness. From the ground up.
Life Equals Balance ~ The Superfood Shot I actually purchase those little drink shots of vitamin B12 and D at Whole Foods ~ I have a vitamin deficiency, so those have helped a lot to boost my energy and provide me with the necessary supplement. So, I am pretty happy with getting this item in my YogiSurprise box. This is a Superfood Shot by Balance and contains the following organic superfoods: pineapple, lemon, carrot, beet, cranberry, blueberry, acerola cherry, spinach, kale, acai berry, camu camu, goji berry, elderberry and dragon fruit, along with turmeric in a base of filtered water.

Buddha Teas Zen Cleanse Blend Tea In a previous YogiSurprise box, I had received a Matcha Buddha Teas drink which I loved!! This is a full box of a detox tea for your digestive system. I use ginger and mint tea currently to help my IBS, so when I read this not only had ginger and mint, but dandelion root, I knew this was going to be a great product to help calm and soothe your digestive system, as well as help with your liver and kidneys with its essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. This also has hibiscus, so it will have a tangy taste, but the dandelion, ginger and burdock root will ground it with their warm and earthy tastes. There are 18 bleach-free bags in this box, which by the way, I do not know what they coated this box with, but it feels so velvety. I cannot stop petting the box! haha I can smell the mint right away thru the bags, it is that potent. I tried this tea hot and it is delicious ~ I bet this would also be fantastic chilled. 18 bags RV $12.00 Promo Code: Save 5% off your purchases by using code TODAY at Buddha Teas

Organic Affinity OmPhones Positive Energy Mala Headphones/Earbuds This was the spoiler for this month’s box and I am so excited to get these! I am always losing my earbuds, but this one has such a presence with the 108 sandalwood bead Mala, I doubt I will lose this one! This has silver toned spacers and a tassel ~ mine is green with a golden tie and the color options vary. I love the size of the buds as they are easy to insert and remove, while being comfortable. I would have taken a photo of this in use, but my camera is my iPhone, so that didn’t work out too well ~ haha. I wish these had the OM design carved into the buds like they show in the photo and website, but hey, life goes on. This headphoneset also has a mic, so you can talk into it as well ~ they sell one without a mic, but why bother with that.. Despite its look of weight, this set is very lightweight and comfortable, plus uniquely stylish! This comes with a cool burlap zipper bag so you can store your buds away. Happy Happy Joy Joy!!

Decription: Soothe your mind and nourish your soul while listening to your favorite music or meditation with Omphones Positive Energy Mala Headphones. Conceptually innovative and acoustically superior to traditional headphones, Omphones are made with sustainable materials, such as bamboo and bioplastics, that nurture and purify musical sounds beyond anything you have ever heard. You will be amazed at the impeccably rich resonance produced by natural wood and renewable resources. In addition, the ability of Omphones to cultivate sensations of deep, relaxing fulfillment as you meditate, perform yoga or exercise is something you’ll look forward to every day.

This means you can use your Omphones like a genuine mala traditionally used to keep count while chanting mantras. One mantra is recited for each bead as you turn your thumb around each bead.
Another great box from Yogi Surprise! The ear buds are fantastic and I love my new socks, grounding oil and Buddha Tea. The mat spray is very handy to have and I am very interested in trying out the Superfood Shot and see how that works for me. I paid $35.96 (as I used a promo code) for this box and received a RV of over $121.00 and I am very happy with this box!
