Time To Cleanse!

Ok, it's no secret that I am the ultimate food lover but when the season start to change I really like to treat my body with a juice cleanse.

I decided to start my Juice Crafters cleanse yesterday morning.. I'm half way into day two with one more day to go. I feel pretty good so far except the chronic headaches that I tend to get from cleansing.. As your body begins to detox, it releases the built up toxins into your bloodstream. The more toxins you have, the more prone you are to theses headaches. I'm a very healthy eater but it's been quite a while since my last cleanse and I'm definitely feeling it. But I find the more water I drink, the less frequent my headaches are. 

I highly recommend trying one of Juice Crafters Cleanse's. There's a lot of Juice companies here in LA but this one if by far my favortie. I'm currently on their Signature Detox plan and so far I'm loving it. I chose this one due to my lack of energy lately and who doesn't want a little added cell rejuvenation! This cleanse has an equal amount of fruit and veggies which are packed with vitamins A, B6, B2, B9, E, C, K & B. Lots and lots of energy coming my way!! 

My tips:

Set a schedule for yourself and stick with it. It'll make following through with your cleanse much easier. Also I've learned, the more I keep my mind occupied, the less urges I'll have to eat. Whenever you feel hungry, sip on your juice or drink a glass of water. Also if you neeeeed something other than the juice or water, it's ok to drink a non-caffeinated tea.

So, all in all I'm feeling really good and ready to take on the last day! Then Monday morning, I'm off for a little R&R vacay with my girlfriends and we are heading somewhere very, very warm. Stay tuned! Xx


My Top Picks - San Francisco

As most of you know, a big portion of my younger years were spent here in San Francisco and the Bay Area. This place has become a second home to me. So while I'm here now, eating/drinking my heart and soul away, I thought I would share with you some of San Francisco's best kept secrets.

With all the innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship that surrounds this city, there's no question why SF produces some of the best restaurants and cafes in the country.

Fall in SF

Ahhh my favorite time of year is finally here! As much as I love my little bikinis, there's something about throwing on a slouchy beanie that makes me feel right at home..  It's was a chilly 50 degrees here in San Francisco this morning but I decided to go out, get some fresh air and do a bit of site seeing. Now I'm off to a collaboration meeting with the Bon Traveler team. Xx

Oh how I love last minute trips.. Especially when they involve visiting my favorite little 'City by the Bay.' I'm here in San Francisco for a few days shooting and spending some quality time with family and my girlfriend Jessica (check out her travel blog Bon Traveler). In between shooting, Jess and I stopped in at our favorite little nook of a coffee shop, Wrecking Ball Coffee, on 18th and York St for a quick cappuccino catch up. Then it was right back to work.. Xx
