Detox & Juice Cleanse w/Evolution Fresh Review {DAY 1}

Screen Shot 2014-08-28 at 2.55.59 PM

Today is day two of my "reset."  I'm very lightly doing a juice cleanse detox using Evolution Fresh juices I picked up at Whole Foods yesterday.  I am not following any specific plan other than to eat way healthier, lightly and to try and reboot myself from some of my bad eating habits that I've picked up over the last couple of months.

Invisalign: the Smart Choice for Braces for Tweens & Teens #InvisalignTalk

Screen Shot 2014-08-28 at 4.00.36 PM

A small part of me still gets a pit in my stomach when I think about my middle school years.  I was so awkward.  And the girls!  Girls can be so mean.  There are just so many hormones flying around and just about everything is awkward physically for kids.  For years, when I've looked back at those years, I've thought "thank God that's behind … [Read more...]

Like me, I bet you have a bunch of clothes, shoes and other accessories in your closet that are sitting there unused. I know that I love to purge about once a year and end up taking bags of clothes up to my local clothing donation organization.

Screen Shot 2014-08-23 at 2.14.05 PM

Little did I know that this campaign to post about the new Outlander show on STARZ would introduce me to my latest fiction obsession!
