I have a huge confession to make! I am the biggest skincare junkie that ever lived. I truly mean that. I’m always on the lookout for the best and brightest items that will do what they claim to do.
I recently received the Charlotte Tilbury skincare kit. It features the magic cream, eye cream, and the skin care cleansing duo. I really feel that the reviews I seen made me want to try it. Numerous reviews claimed that they saw a decrease in wrinkles, and their skin looked amazing.
If you don’t follow Charlotte Tilbury, you really should. In my opinion, she’s a skin genius. She makes everyone she works with look phenomenal . Celebrities work with her and they say the best things.
The skincare kit did wonders. The magic cream is exactly what it says, MAGIC. Your skin feels baby soft, the pores look like they have disappeared, and your wrinkles seem very improved. The wonder filter is another amazing product. It is used back stage for many shows and I can see why.
The Charlotte Tilbury products have become my one and only favorite. I’m going to be 45 soon and I feel as we age we see many issues that arise. I have to tell you that I have found wonders in Charlotte Tilbury products. They are the bomb. They will forever be a part of my family.
I wanted to share with you my Amazing Results that had with The FitRise Three Day Cleanse By Danette May. I am very picky about the cleanses I do because I have never had any good results with any of them, except for The Sakara 10 Day Reset.I found this amazing 3 Day cleanse from Danette MAy online and decided to try it. I’m sure glad I did.
I was just coming off of a two week vacation and then a week long holiday. I was consuming some amazing wine along with some great Italian food. I knew I wanted to come home and reset my body. My thinking was foggy and I felt overexerted. I can’t tell you how happy I am that I tried this amazing cleanse.
I want to start off by saying that this is NOT a cleanse that starves you to death. This cleanse gives you vital nutrients and vitamins and nourishes your body. It doesn’t leave you feeling hungry or unsatisfied. It’s not hard to do and is not overwhelming. I feel every single smoothie is delicious. The cleanse gives you a whole shopping list for the three days .
When you wake, you drink a mixture of Lemon Water with Cayenne Pepper and Apple Cider Vinegar. This literally filled me up. It’s really got a good taste to it. An hour later you will then make you a Lemon Green Tea. The Lemon in the tea is really cleansing to your organs . The Breakfast smoothie comes after that. It really does taste like a Pina Colada without the alcohol in it. Once that is drank, an hour later you drink the cider vinegar elixir again. Your Dinner consist of the Fired Up Metabolism Drink which is so good. You then drink the apple cider elixir again before bed. The day of smoothies really does keep you feeling full.
The second day is all about bringing in anti -inflammatory foods. They are still cleansing to the body and gives the body the chance to digest fully. You start off with the cider vinegar elixir , and then the Lemon Green Tea. You will then add in a Mint Drink as your Lunch. The Mint Drink really helps the digestive tract. The Lunch will consist of The Love Smoothie. This adds in chia seeds, and lots of greens to your cleanse. For Dinner, you Will make you the Coconut Kale. This is so good, topped off with the Cider Vinegar Elixir Before Bed. At this Point, You are really starting to feel light.
This is the Final Phase. I’m not going to lie, you are craving some real food at this point, but you feel too good. The last day you start off with the Apple Cider elixir, then the Lemon Green Tea. Your breakfast consist of the Green Goddess Smoothie which I have to say is super good too. You then move toward the Belly Bliss Meal for Lunch. The dinner is the Sensual Warrior Drink which to me taste like a chocolate shake. Once again, before bed you drink the Apple Cider Elixir drink. You then sleep really great. I think its all the detoxing.
Once I was done with the cleanse, my clarity and focus was better. I dropped 4 lbs. It was probably that stubborn water weight. I felt amazing. I then started to eat light and focus on whole foods again. I made light salads primarily of greens, and olive oil and vegetables. My workouts were back on track . I felt like a million dollars. I can’t stress to you enough how amazing this cleanse is. Try it for yourself and see how great you will feel.
I recently 10 days ago set off on a health and detox adventure with a Sakara Life. The detox consisted of a 10 day devotion to living clean and plant based, discontinuing alcohol and coffee and other preservative filled foods , such as anything fried or foods full of bad fats. The thought of letting go of my weekly wine was a big scare to me. To be perfectly honest, I didn’t know if I could do it.
THE WAY IT WORKS
The detox started on a Monday for me. I felt this was a great day to start because it was the start of the week. There is no better day to start something like this than a Monday. We’ve all been there with diets. I started my morning off with a meditation . The meditation was more of an affirmation telling myself, “YES! I can go without coffee today. You have to understand, I LOVE my coffee. I started my morning coffee replacement with a nice glass of the Sakara Life detox tea. It honestly was delicious. It’s loaded up with many cleansing herbs. I honestly felt like, What Coffee? after drinking it.
I then poured me a small glass of filtered water and mixed the Beauty Water Tonic in with my water. It’s filled with Rose and I honestly couldn’t stop smelling it. The aroma was amazing. The Rose water is suppose to help with giving your skin a glow. I then made me my morning Green Smoothie with the Sakara’s Life Source Packet. I also added in my morning probiotic. This honestly was a delicious smoothie. I actually looked forward to it most mornings. Through out my week, I would change it up a bit, and add in a nice Sakara recipe for my breakfast. The recipe’s they include are delicious.
MID DAY SCHEDULE
The Mid Morning would come, and I would add in another Detox Tea. I , at this point, started becoming obsessed with the Detox Tea. My coffee never entered my mind. I did my morning workout. This consisted of either hot yoga, vinyasa yoga or HIIT. I changed it up through out my 10 day. The lunches consisted of one of the many delicious recipes included in the Sakara booklet. Daphne OZ includes some of her recipes in it, and I can’t explain the taste. They are all plant based.
My evening meal would include another delicious recipe . One of my favorites was the Green Veggie Stir Fry. Oh wow, was that good. Before Bed each night, I would make me a cold glass of water and add in the charcoal tonic. I drank this with my evening probiotic. This honestly wasn’t bad to drink either. This structure and schedule became second nature to me. I honestly didn’t miss my wine, and I LOVED this way of living.
This is the end of my Sakara 10 Day Reset. I have to say I’m obsessed. The differences I seen was my ability to not NEED wine or coffee. My moods were amazing. I became more focused and motivated with my blog. My skin looked awesome. Most days I didn’t even have foundation or concealer on. My water intake really increased, and I definitely had more energy. I am going to live this way everyday. I am going to focus on ME everyday . My diet consist only of plant based foods, and I will continue to eat plant based everyday. The way it makes my body feel, and they way it feeds it, is so unexplainable. I have improved my fitness on a daily schedule now. I don’t miss! I also lost 6 lbs on this detox. My body changed.
If you ever want to really change your life, you need to turn to Sakara Life. I can’t believe the amazing Reset they have developed to really change your health, in MIND, BODY, and SPIRIT. It’s a game changer people.
I have to share with you this wonderful recipe that I found in Optimum Nutrition. Its delightful as well as delicious. This is perfect to get those antioxidants through the fall season and winter months. I know a few of you think green soup, no way, but it’s delicious.
This is a great recipe by Amelia Freer, nutritional therapist for people like Boy George and Sam Smith. It’s in her amazing recipe book, Cook, Nourish, and Glow.
1 onion, chopped
1 head of broccoli, cut into florets
3 handfuls of fresh or frozen peas
3 cups vegetable or chicken stock
1 small bag of baby spinach
1 green chili, chopped to sprinkle on top
A small handful of fresh parsley, chopped to serve
For the cashew cream
1 cup raw cashews
1 3/4 water & 1 1/4 cups hot water
1 clove garlic
Zest of 1 lemon
A few hours before making this soup, prepare the cashew cream. Put the cashews into a bowl, pour over the hot water, and leave to soak for atleast 2 hours. Once the cashews are tender, drain and put into food processor, along with 1 1/4 cups fresh water, the garlic, and lemon zest and blitz until completely smooth and creamy . Set aside.
Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a rage saucepan, and sweat the onion until translucent. Add the broccoli and peas to the pan, cook for 5 min, then add the stock. ( the vegetables should be just covered). Bring to the boil. Simmer until the broccoli is tender. ( roughly 4 min). Don’t over cook the vegetables or they will turn a full green. Using a stick blender, start blending the soup , adding a handful of spinach at a time, the spinach will cook as its mixed with the soup. Blend until the soup is smooth and thick, then stir through half the cashew cream. Serve in bowls with a swirl of cashew cream on top and fresh parsley and chili, if using scattered over. Yummy!!!
