Last week I tried a 3 day Blueprint Cleanse for the first time. I have tried many other cleanses in the past, but what I liked about this one was that there was absolutely no effort on my part. You basically drink these six juices that are overnight expressed to you in numerical order for three days. That’s it. (Confession: I also “spoiled myself” with some arugula and fresh squeezed lemon each afternoon.)
Unlike some of the other cleanses out there, these are USDA Certified Organic. They say that about 20 lbs. of produce goes into each bottle of juice.. and I beleive it! I felt more energetic, less bloated and lost a few pounds.
After the cleanse I tried to make my favorite Pineapple Apple Mint juice (seriously, it might be the best thing I’ve ever tasted, I wanted to pour vodka in it… is that bad?) and it cost me about $10 of produce and 30 minutes of prep to get about a 1/2 cup of juice, which was good, but not as good as Blueprint’s. This stuff is worth it’s weight in gold I tell you! You can order them from their website, or purchase most of their juices at Wholefoods.
I am a convert. I have signed up for a bi-weekly delivery of the Tasting Flight (includes 2 Pineapple Apple Mints, 2 Spicy Lemonades and 2 Cashew Milk with Cinnamon, Agave Nector and Vanilla.) All delicious and a great option for those mornings when I don’t have time for breakfast, or in the evenings to mix with vodka.
Summa Summa Summatime! (Love me some DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince.) There’s no better way to turn up a party than a great signature cocktail. Impress your guests with one of these easy to make libations.
Last weekend we celebrated Anna Lou’s 6th birthday. When I asked where she wanted to have it, without hesitation she voted for Little Pincushion Studio. My girls adore Annabel and her classes. If we only lived closer, they’d be there everyday!
The girls had a blast! It was a beautiful day and and as usual, Annabel had some great crafts!
Cydney Allen of Afton Photography took such amazing pictures and was so much fun to work with!
Two things… 1.) Have you all seen Oh Joy’s! Collection for Target? So colorful and perfect for Spring! I am so elated to see when a fellow blogger makes their dreams come true. 2.) Have you seen pictures of the party that she threw for her launch? I can’t even find the words.
