Project Juice

(One Day Juice Cleanse c/o Project Juice

Photography by Natalee Shale

I will be completely honest with you all, I've never done a juice cleanse before. So when Project Juice reached out to my to try a one day cleanse, I was a little hesitant. If you follow me on Instagram, you know my love for food runs deep. I'm not shy to share that I can eat! However, I decided to give it a try anyway. I chose mostly flavors I knew I could handle from the descriptions. They delivered it straight to my door and I was ready to give it a whirl. 

Here is the order that I strategically planned to drink them in: 

Morning (Breakfast and snack): Chocolate Protein and Mint Chip Shake.
Afternoon (Lunch and snack): Strawberry Chia, Beta Bomb
Evening (Dinner and snack): D-Tox and Potion #10

Okay... I lasted only through two and was ready to eat by lunch! I did drink the other four throughout the next few days but couldn't do it all in one shot. Each juice I picked was delicious individually but I don't think I disciplined myself enough. I'm willing to give it another chance because I love a good challenge. If any of you have done a cleanse, please share how you mentally prepared for it.

Thanks Project Juice for the experience, I'm ready  to do it again. Stay tuned for a new outfit post, my Japan photo diary and my first restaurant review.

A spring dress I wore a few weeks back styled casual to the core. Threw on the perfect shades and my oldest leather jacket to date. I threw my hair into a low bun and I was set to go to work, edgy and cool. I'm always a fan of black and white because it's classic, effortless and always in style. Shop this dress on sale now HERE

I still have many posts to share including my Japan diary and my one day juice cleanse with Project Juice. Stay tuned!

OOTD: Japan Adventures Part Three

Photography by Gabriel Troullier

This was my final day in Japan, and the last day I could feel my feet! Sightseeing in Japan is just as exhausting as in New York. You walk and take the train everywhere! This shoot was in Zama, about an hour outside of Tokyo. Gabe and I found the streets to be extremely appealing to the eye, small but quaint, with narrow roads and lots of personality. We had a birds eye view of the city ahead and decided to stop and shoot. The whole time I was thinking how sad I was to leave such an awesome country and Gabe. We took pictures quickly then went off to sight-see more with two final stops; at another arcade (our fifth at this point) and ramen again for lunch. The trip definitely ended on a great but sad note.

Stay tuned for my last Japan installment, a photo diary of different places I visited that you should too.

OOTD: Japan Adventures Part Two

Photography by Gabriel Troullier

God I miss Japan! I have to tell you guys how amazing it is. The people are super friendly, the streets are clean and the food is to die for. Everywhere you go, you feel like you're in a video game with cheerful music playing, numerous arcades, and streets lined with toy vending machines. I mean, how could you not be happy?! I never imagined going and now I can't imagine not being there. Everyone, please put in on our bucket list of countries to visit.

This stop, Shibuya Crossing, was one of my favorites and is known as the busiest crosswalk in the world. Gabe and I did a quick photo shoot among the craziness. I, of course, made him snap away as people stared and tried not to block my shot in true Japanese politeness. I loved every minute of it! Seeing all these people just made me in awe of how amazing Tokyo is. Looking at these pictures, I'm thinking, where are they all going? Where are they all coming from? And when can I go back?

Stay tuned for one more look and my photo diary of Japan.

OOTD: Japan Adventures Part One

Photography by Gabriel Troullier

I'm back after a month and a half hiatus! After blogging consistently for two years, I needed some time off to focus on myself. I also work a regular 9-5 job that was kicking my butt! So I decided I needed a vacation (first time since 2007) and went to visit Japan. Sometimes you just need a break from life, you know?

Today I'm sharing my first look from my first day there. I went straight to find the Sakura (cherry blossoms) trees before they went out of season. God they're magnificent and beautiful! I brought my Missguided pink coat that matched perfectly. The weather there is like New York, cold and rainy during the spring season so I'm glad I packed it. I styled the rest of the look with my usual black and white attire. I have two more outfits plus a photo diary of all the places I visited that I can't wait to share. Stay tuned!

Thanks to Gabe for a wonderful trip and reminding me how great life can be!

Thanks for stopping by!
