I juice cleanse anywhere from two to three times a year for three to ten days. The health debate aside, I see it as a reset button. Because I usually snack without thinking, the cleanse forces me to think about my eating habits and what I’m actually putting into my body. I’ve done different cleanses with different companies but I always come back to BluePrint.

I juice cleanse anywhere from two to three times a year for three to ten days. The health debate aside, I see it as a reset button. Because I usually snack without thinking, the cleanse forces me to think about my eating habits and what I’m actually putting into my body. I’ve done different cleanses with different companies but I always come back to BluePrint.

My green tea face mask from The Face Shop is so bomb and so cheap. They were having a buy ten get five sale so I scooped up 15 masks for $20. $1.3 a mask! What a steal!

I’ve been trying out the Tony Moly Bee Propolis ointment to treat my dark spots. It has helped, but I’ve been advised to invest in some Vitamin C serum for better results. I’ll keep you posted on how that goes.

Even though I’m a shower oil kind of girl, I like to have bar soaps handy. Yardley’s English Lavender one smells divine. Other than using it as just soap, I keep a couple bars in my dresser drawers. They scent my blouses and sweaters quite nicely!

SimplyMadeGreetings, an adorable custom mug shop on Etsy, made us team mugs. They’re so cute!

Lo bought me The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up because she swore by Mary Kondo’s method. I highly recommend you read it too. It will change the way you look at everything you own.

I’ve been wearing this Sandro “Cady” top a lot. The fringe trim is a fun texture to play around with.

The backpacks I own look like actual backpacks. I found this one at Topman and fell in love. When I use it, I feel less like the student I don’t want to be. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have much room to fit a lot of things, but it fits my 15 inch MacBook Pro and a few books so I can’t really complain.
I had the opportunity to meet the team behind Clean Reserve and smelled their whole line or fragrances. I had to have Sueded Oud. The scents aren’t gender specific, are environmentally aware, and they smell so refreshingly different from the generic perfumes and colognes.

These aviators are brand-less. I got them on St. Marks. They’re solid and cheap—everything I need to avoid eye contact. And, they go with everything. If you don’t have your shit together (like me), I highly recommend them!

As you probably know, I am the team fatass. I love food. As part of my New Year’s resolution, I’ve been working out everyday and am low-key obsessed with KIND bars. They’re nutritional and delicious. They’re the perfect go-to snack for me to grab when I go to class, to work, or to the gym. My favorites are Pomegranate and Blueberry Pistachio, Nut Delight, and Roasted Jalapeño.

  1. I love me a good juice cleanse! I actually just wrote about my experience last week! I totally agree – it really helps me think about how much food I am eating vs how much food I actually need. Great post today 🙂

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).
