We are cleaning out our closet over here at Mint HQ to make room for Spring! Therefore, all your favorite Fall pieces are on SALE! Nikki Waffle Leggings, Flowy Thermal Longsleeves, Graphic Tees and more! See ya there!
Just got home from the most incredible trip ever! We went to Park City, Utah for Sundance Film Festival and although I didn't see many films (eeeeekkk..) I am pretty sure we got the full Sundance experience. Park City is the cutest little town, beautiful cottages covered in snow. Main Street peppered with cute shops and plenty of cute boys wandering around haha.. My favorite events were Skull Candy on Friday night and the Nylon x Dream Hotels party on Saturday! We could have danced all night!
Sunday we went DOG SLEDDING and it was so amazing. Being in the middle of nowhere in Utah, the sun setting, surrounded by nature. I will never forget it. Reminds me of why travel is so important. Awakens the soul.
So for the last 4 days I've been "cleansing" I'm sure you've heard of it. Basically, you cut out all food and drink only pressed juices filled with fruits and veggies. Usually six juices per day, every two hours. You can go one day, you can go four days, you can go thirty days! There are plenty of options of amazing and tasty places to purchase these, it's hard to choose! I opted for three days on the "Pressed" cleanse. BUT after three days I wasn't quite ready to eat again (more on that later) so I did the fourth day with "Juice Served Here"
The first day was rough. Well, the Globes were on and all I wanted was popcorn and chocolate chip cookies! By day two I felt fabulous. I hear mixed reviews on this. Some people tell me it takes them until day three or four to start feeling good, but it all depends on your normal diet. I eat very clean normally; no caffeine, no alcohol, no meat, no cheese (no fun- as people like to add haha) but it works for me! I think if you are cleansing and you are cutting out those things it's a bit harder and takes a while to feel great. I'm at the end of day four I felt fantastic! It also makes me want to make healthier choices coming off the cleanse (less sugar, less salt, etc..)
I personally, loved starting off the year with a cleanse but you have to choose one that is right for you. The other thing I would say is listen to your body. Don't starve yourself! At no point was I hungry, it's mostly out of comfort that I wanted to eat. If you do it right, every few hours, the juices keep you full. At least for me. Best of luck and happy cleansing!
Days, weeks, months, years... they can go by in a blink of an eye! Sometimes it all feels like a speed blur! When I look back I realize how many amazing memories I have from 2014, and how incredibly grateful I am. Thank you to everyone who made this an amazing year! Cheers to 2015!
