Insurgent Blog: Whole Foods Guacamole for $10 ?!?

Today I went to Whole Foods looking for a rare cooking ingredient called black salt.  Whole Foods was my last hope in a quest that took my wife and I all over the city of Orlando.  But they did not have it either. So we walked around the store just to see if we could pick up anything else to make the trip worthwhile.

Camila Cabello - Latina Rising

If you do not yet know Camila Cabello, you will.   Over the last year since leaving Fifth Harmony, the Cuban-Mexican American singer has risen from relative obscurity to land today at the top of the charts with her hit song "Havana."

Official Cover for the Single "Havana"

Camila Cabello's Background

Her musical career started in 2012 when she left Miami Palmetto High School and headed straight to the audition stage of The X Factor.  Her rendition of Aretha Franklin's "Respect" did not convince the judges, but her talent showed and was selected by Simon Cowell to join another four women in the female singing group as Fifth Harmony.  After four years with the singing group, Camila left on December 2016 to launch her solo career, still under Simon Cowell's Syco Music and SONY Music (Epic Records).  As the daughter of a Mexican mother and Cuban father, Camila's new single, "Havana," seems to reference that heritage when she sings the line "Half my heart is in Havana."
