LIFE LATELY

Lately I have been crushing on all things Spring. With Spring Break and Easter in the rear view mirror, I am onto spring cleaning.  Both a closet refresh and a reset on my health.  For the last year (post wedding) I haven’t been taking care of my body. I mean I have been eating pizza, chinese food and chips and queso on the reg.  Not okay- especially for a girl who is about to be 28.

Today, I started the Whole 30 challenge. I know it is not going to be an easy, but I am ready to try.  For the last few weeks I have been mentally preparing (guys, no wine for 30 days is going to be interesting…) for the program and today I was finally ready to start the challenge. You must know that I am not doing this program to lose weight, but instead to cleanse my body of all those things I shouldn’t be eating. I have been allergic to dairy since Junior year in high school and I never really accepted the terms until now. Let me know if you are interested and I will keep you updated on my progress.  Needless to say, this week may be a little rough.  After reading tons of blogs and articles, I will probably be going through a sugar and carb withdrawl around Day 3.  Yikes! Other than my update today, these past couple weeks I have been spending my days outside. Whether it be working, walking the pups and going for long jogs, I am trying to soak up this 70 and sunny weather for as long as possible.

You have seen me wear my favorite Heidi Merrick looks here, but her new collection is everything.  I think I am going to get this dress for a wedding this summer and I think it is time for another Drake Tee.  I seriously wear mine at least once a week (just ask Mackenzie!).

One of my favorite bloggers, Camille Styles is planning a cleanse.  I will be using some form of her recipes to get me through the next month.  It  is the perfect time to start getting ready for Summer (aka bikini season).  Be sure to follow the hashtag #camillestylescleanse next week.

Have you been into Forever21 lately?  I took a major hiatus from the store after college to invest in some timeless, high quality pieces.  That being said, lately I have been browsing online and I have to say, I have an ever growing wishlist of items under $30.  I picked up this top a few weeks ago (it was $18) and I have received so many compliments.  The quality is surprisingly great and the cost per wear is even better.  :) See a few of my must-haves:

M.Gemi has been killing it lately.  I have had a gift card burning a whole in my pocket for months and I just can’t decide what color loafers I want.  I have been leaning towards this rose color, but it is so out of my comfort zone.  What color and style do you think I should get?

    I’ve done Whole30 twice and I LOVE IT. It’s definitely a challenge but it is so worth it to stick with it because you really feel amazing and full of energy by the end. There are for sure some dark days but in the end, worth it. Since it’s so restrictive, it’s not something you can really keep doing long term, but there are a lot of things I learned from it and some habits I’ve stuck with (like giving up Splenda). Good luck and please do keep us readers updated on your progress!

    You’re going to do great!!
