Searching for "label/whole 30"

My Insta-Week 9.3.2012

Happy Labor Day folks! Can you believe it’s the last hurrah of summer already? I can’t. I truly lived it up this summer. Hope you did too. Here’s a glimpse of my last week & weekend of summer.

– My Whole 30 is officially over! Phew, what a journey. If you’re thinking about doing a detox or body reset before the seasons change, I totally recommend Whole 30. Check out my post about it here it’s life changing! Even though it’s over, I’m finding myself making much smarter health choices when it comes to food. That’s something no “fad diet” can do. It’s truly a mental reset. I know you guys are all like “Twitpic or didn’t happen” so here’s the proof below – before & after pics.

About 2 Weeks into Whole 30 (couldn’t fit this dress before Whole 30 started)
This is 4 Weeks after Whole 30! The dress fits slimmer through the chest, waist & hips

–  I celebrated my blog’s 3 Year Anniversary on Thursday! HUGE thanks to everyone who came out. Check out what a blast we had in this post or the Facebook Album. Also big up to Stella & Dot for giving me the perfect jewels to compliment my ‘fit. The Renegade cluster ring on the top right is one of the pieces they gave me. I now wear it with everything.

Made In America Festival this weekend was the perfect sweet ending to an awesome summer. I sang, I shimmied, I snapped Street Style. Twas good times. Check out the Kickin’ It post for more on that.

What are you most looking forward to this fall? Soundoff below!

Instaweek 8.27

Happy Monday! I had quite an active week and weekend. Here’s what I got into:

– I’m still on the Whole 30 grind. I had a couple of weekend snafoos, but I’m still going strong with my veggie omelettes (no cheese!) and my Jamba smoothies. The plan definitely gets easier as time passes.

– I took a trip to Forever 21 this weekend to start stocking up on trendy & budget-friendly pieces for fall. I stumbled on the dress above left and wasn’t sure if I should take it home, so I didn’t. Weigh in below if you think I should head back and get it.

– This past weekend, I had the pleasure of participating in a photoshoot with some of my favorite natural-haired gurus. Had SO much fun! Popular Youtube vlogger Taren Guy participated in the shoot as well. We spent the whole day after our shoot hanging at the Afropunk Festival in BK which was a blast!

There’s only one official weekend left in summer – how sad is that? Let’s make the most of this upcoming week folks! Tell me what’s on your summer bucket list!
