Inspired By Courtney Kerr: 3 day Juicing for Summer
If anyone is familiar with Courtney Kerr, she was on the show Dallas Most Eligible on Bravo. I follow her on twitter and watch the D Presents: The Broadcast. Her and a co-star were on a juicing cleanse to kick start a healthy summer. Yesterday, on Dr. Oz had the guy from the movie/documentary that can be seen on Netflix called, “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” and were talking about juicing for 3 days. What a better way to kick start a healthy eating habit than do this cleanse.
“According to Dr. Joel Fuhrman, author of The Super Immunity Diet, juicing helps unleash the natural healing power of the body. Juicing floods your system with powerful nutrients and antioxidants. It may also help retrain your taste buds to enjoy healthy fruits and vegetables, making it the first step toward a long-lasting lifestyle change, or jumpstarting a weight-loss regimen. Dr. Fuhrman also says juicing can be beneficial for people with elevated cholesterol and high blood pressure, and those suffering from autoimmune diseases, like arthritis, digestive problems and skin conditions.”
So here it the menu/ingredients for the cleanse:
I think I’ll try it, now I just need to hit the grocery store! What about you guys?

BonLook: My first Rx sunglasses!
Recently I blogged about how I had purchased some Rx Sunglasses online through BonLook which happens to offer chic glasses and sunglasses starting for $99! Trust me when I say I’ve paid over $500+ per pair I’ve gotten at both franchise and boutique optical stores. So, getting $99 sunglasses that were prescription, was amazing!
Don’t get me wrong, I was skeptical that my glasses were not going to come out right with how high the power on my vision is. To my surprise I could see perfectly the minute I tried them on! I didn’t get a headache, or saw things sideways or over magnified like I do when I first get a new pair of glasses. Over all my experience was great, it took about a week and a half to receive them, but now that I have them all I can say it was worth the wait.
And here are my glasses, as well as how they were packaged.

PostalPix: Finally Print those Instagram Photos!
Using your iPhone or Android with the App available in both the apple app store and android market.
That is how the app looks like when you are using your iPhone.
Here are the prices. I feel like they are reasonably priced:
I ordered the 2X2 Grid, which basically means you can fit 9 photos on the sheet they print them on, all photos are 2 inches by 2 inches when printed/cut. The other sizes are just that, the sizes of individual photos.
Here are the photos I ordered, which cost me $15 with shipping, but hey, I’ll be getting 45 pictures printed from my phone that I’m sure would have never been printed because they are stuck on my phone.
(I know random photos, but then again, they are instagram photos.)
Now I have to wait until they are shipped. I will start a little instagram scrapbook (I love crafting). There’s just something about having pictures printed instead of having them just digitally stored.
Give it a try! All you have to do is touch you phones screen and order. You don’t even have to get up to do anything.
Until next time,
DIY: Acrylic Tray Insert in Chevron
I stumbled onto an awesome blog/design shop, called For Chic Sake that has free printable items that include monograms. And I love this project! The file can be downloaded here:
Just scroll to the bottom of the website to look through all available colors.
Here is the project and how I plan to design mines:
This will be my design below!
All you need is a color printer, paper, an acrylic small box from The Container Store: $5.99 and you’re done!

DIY: Iced Mocha Coffee
About a month ago I decided to save money on my almost daily trip to Starbucks and went ahead and invested in an espresso machine. I also bought Starbucks espresso beans and different flavored syrups.
Today happens to be a warm day here in Dallas, so what better than start making iced coffee. I recently went to Walmart and bought their brand of mason jars, which was only $7 instead of the “real” brand which would have set me back about $20. They are the same both in size and quality only difference is you do not get the name on the glass. I really don’t care, but if you do, go buy the real ones, more power to you.
Anyways, I made 2 shots of espresso (or if you don’t happen to own an espresso machine, brew really dark coffee of your choice, just double the strength of a cup of java.) then I packed the mason jar with ice then poured the coffee, pumped 2 shots of Torani Chocolate Syrup (you can use Hershey Chocolate Syrup, it will taste the same) and topped it off with skim milk (or whatever milk is of your choice.)
And there you have it, my iced mocha. Also, blogger and Food Network Chef The Pioneer Woman makes a wonderful version as well. Check it out here: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2011/06/perfect-iced-coffee/
