Hungry For Change 3-Day Detox

super green detox drink | beauty bets

I do a detox every January, not as a resolution but because I always kinda need one after the holiday. January also tends to be a quieter time of year, with fewer activities and cold weather that makes it easier to slow down and conserve energy—often a necessity when you’re juicing, eating super clean, and generally depriving your body of the things that keep it artificially running (ie caffeine, sugar, refined carbs, etc.). I often follow along with Gwyneth, who’s got a lovely looking warming winter detox this year on GOOP, but I was really drawn to Hungry For Change’s 3-day plan for its simplicity and vegetable focus. It’s crazy easy to prepare everything on the menu, there’s a sweet looking green drink recipe I can’t wait to try, plus I a chia pudding that has GOT to taste better than it looks. I didn’t know anything about Hungry for Change until I stumbled upon it through My Darling Lemon Thyme’s blog but I love the premise: Our bodies are designed to run on real food, and our natural default state is health. Yes! If only we could embrace that more! Why is it so hard? You know what I think: Food is an emotional currency. And while I will never give up things that taste good or eating everything I want, albeit hopefully in moderation, I’m always striving to take better care of myself and my body. If you care to join me, jump in at any time!

Holiday Gift Guides 2012

Hello lovelies and hello December! It’s high time we got the 2012 Holiday Gift Guide party started. You can look forward to plenty of pretty ideas sprinkled throughout our usual posts, plus more inspiration on our holiday Pinterest board. Time is running out to scoop up one of my personal favorites:

The limited edition butter LONDON and goop lacquer set ($36). This brilliant trifecta of bespoke non-toxic lacquer includes an edgy moss, a vampy red and the perfect true nude to carry you through the soiree season. It’s available exclusively as part of The goop Collection on goop.com. Might have to keep this one for myself!
