Dear Wine Lovers, Try the Mumba!

Let’s talk about another pleasure in life beyond beauty for a few minutes, shall we? Wine! I love wine especially on late afternoons while trying to relax after a long day.  My favorites are the bubbly kinds like D’Asti’s and fizzy reds.  Occasionally, a bubbly, fruity sangria is a great wind down for me.

The issue is that I would feel forced to finish the bottle within a few days because they lose their “fizz factor” after opening them.  I don’t drink wine every day so of course they have to be stored away until glasses are out again.  The traditional wine plugs and re-cork corks seem to do okay as far as spilling goes. However, I wondered if there’s something out there that would help prevent them from going flat so quickly.

I was gifted this Mumba Wine Preserver. It’s a hands free device that sucks air out of the bottle to help preserve freshness. It is said to help preserve the wine for roughly two-three weeks. After trial and error, I found it very easy to use.  As long as you place the cap on correctly it will store securely.



You simply place the cap on top of the bottle opening then place the Mumba on top of the cap where the black rubber is.  Tap the Mumba button on top once and let it do it’s thing. The glowing light will stop emitting when once the round of suction is completed. You also have the option of using it twice in a row if you don’t plan on coming back to the wine for a while.

The stoppers are rubber instead of cork and seem to hold very well.  Four different colored stoppers come with the Mumba.  This was also great to me because I drink different wines depending on my mood and the food I’m having.  It makes it easy to store more than one at a time which is a plus.



It closely resembles a pepper shaker in my opinion. It could camouflage easily at the dinner table or where you store your cocktail party tools.  I think of it as a great gift to a friend for Girls Night or for the general wine connoisseur.  One of the best things about this wine preserver is that you can use it over a hundred times before you have to recharge it.



In my opinion, the Mumba makes it easy to restore and come back to.  To remove the cap you can simply thumb push it up gently and enjoy.  To give a fair review, the wines that I tried it on lasted me one week each based on two people drinking from the bottle.  Neither of the wines shown in the pictures above seemed to lose freshness.

Yachay Life Weight + Energy Balace

Yachay Life’s Weight & Energy Balance Supplement




My experience with this product was great!  I recommend this to anyone in need of something to keep down unwanted water weight.  My weight usually goes up and down and varies from week to week between 165 lbs to 175 lbs. I wish I would have gotten pictures of my mid section when I first started taking them but it slipped my mind.  However, I did record my weight throughout the time of me taking them.

I originally began taking these Yachay Life pills at 174 lbs around 3 weeks ago.  Usually, I pick up a few pounds around the middle of the month. Depending on my diet and water consumption I can keep my weight under wraps.  Honestly, I was already looking for a product to help me with stabilizing my weight because nothing is more irritating than buying a new outfit and not looking like I did in it when I bought it.

I have been able to keep off 5-6 lbs to this point and noticed the difference in a week after taking them.  My mid section looks flatter and my weight has not exceeded 169 lbs. I even noticed that my feet felt less achy after work  and less cold in the middle of the night.  I usually have to wear socks when I go to bed at night but the last few days I felt less cold.  I did read the label when I received the bottle but I didn’t begin to understand the effects until I did my research.

These dietary supplements are a blend of White Kidney Bean, Stinging Nettle Leaf, Green Coffee and Green Tea.  The White Kidney Bean and Stinging Nettle aid in weight balance while the Green Tea and Green Coffee aid in energy.  I truly think these ingredients work well together in the sense that they seem to regulate and help one another work.

Here are a few facts that I found interesting about the ingredients:

Stinging Nettle

  • Known Anti Inflammatory
  • Aids in eliminating Kidney Stones and Gallbladder Stones
  • download (10)Great as tea for Pregnant Mothers
  • Helps with Anemia and Blood Circulation

This explains why I had less bloating and felt less cold in the middle of night as I sleep.


Green Coffee

  • Filled with Anti Oxidants
  • Can help regulate your Blood Sugar
  • Great source of Energy

download (11) I have not finished the bottle just yet but I definitely will and purchase more no doubt about it!  I have suffered from anemia for years and this is the first time any non prescription supplement worked for me.  These are a great source of natural energy and are effective when it comes to weight balance.


You can find these on Yachay! This product is Non GMO, are a Vegan Product, Organic and Made in the USA. They are available through Amazon for $39.95.  Here’s a link to check out their trailor.
