clean eating, detox water, diet, fitspo, good health, water, weight loss

Happy 2015! This past year took a major toll on me, and subsequently, blogging took a back seat. But, I will be sure to post on a more semi-regular basis for the new year. And for my first post, a few of my Instagram friends asked me to share the recipe for my detox water. I always do a detox the first weekend of the new year to clear out all the ickiness consumed over the holiday. I try to drink a gallon on Saturday and Sunday and limit solid foods. It's tough, but totally worth it to jumpstart your weight loss goals (or at least get rid of belly flab due to bloating)! So here goes my detox water recipe:

2-Day Detox Water

-- 1 Gallon of Water
-- 3 Large Lemons (slided and halved)
-- 1 Large Cucumber (sliced and halved)
-- 1 Cup of Frozen Strawberries (sliced)
-- 1 Cup of Frozen Blueberries
-- 1 Cup of Frozen Pineapples
-- Mint Leaves (at least 2 sprigs)
-- Fresh Peeled Ginger (qty to your liking)

I try to use fresh ingredients in my detox waters as much as possible, but since most tropical fruits are out of season this time of year, frozen fruits like strawberries, pineapples and blueberries are much more cost effective, and you can buy them from your local grocer in bulk bags already sliced and ready for use. 

Before I start my water routine in the morning, I also take a tablespoon of Bragg Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar to jumpstart my digestive system. Not everyone likes the taste of ACV, but it's a great, natural way to promote alkalinity in the body and reduce bloating. 

There are all kinds of detox water recipes on the Internet, especially Pinterest, so feel free to swap and substitute fruits and veggies to your liking. And if you do, leave a comment to let me know what you use!

Cheers to good health in 2015!

T-Shirt, $14, Old Navy | "Three Ls" Mug, $22, 

Have you in stepped inside an Old Navy as of late? I have become OBSESSED with their Paris-inspired t-shirt collection. If you know me, then you know I have Paris on the brain at all times. I had a trip to Paris planned for this month that recently got postponed due to my 1000 irons in the fire, but I'm hoping to reschedule for early spring 2015. And when I do make it to the city of light, I promise not to wear this shirt out in the city during the day (it screams, "Hey, I'm a tourist! Rob me!), but my favorite "Three Ls" mug will most definitely find its way to a cute sidewalk cafe.

Have you checked out their line of Ts? Find them in-store and online, here.

I love this closet. NO, I really love this closet. It's perfect for playing dress up or just luxuriating and taking in the wonderment that is your personal wardrobe.

And while it does not belong to me (iWish) it does belong to someone whose style I've envied since her days on MTV. It's the closet of designer and media powerhouse Lauren Conrad. This girl has been getting her magazine cover hustle on since announcing her engagement last year. She snagged the coveted position for Martha Stewart Weddings recently AND Us Weekly got first dibs into her wedding photos. Now her beautiful abode she shares with hubby William Tell is featured in the latest issue of InStyle Magazine.

Take a peek at her complete home tour HERE and get ready to oooh, aaaah and overall hate the fact that your closet is the size of a sardine can.
