Did you even know that holistic facials existed? Ok, good, so I'm not the only one. Let me tell you—they are life-changing and unlike any other facial you've had, it's a Brit guarantee. I recently had the pleasure of this amazing skin experience at Reishi wellness spa in Wicker Park, Chicago. Now let's talk all about what you can expect when you get yours.
Trust me, it's not scary. It doesn't hurt. It's not just for hangovers. And you're going love it. IV therapy is something that was always on my list of things "to try." I had read about Meyers cocktails throughout my research and it just seemed that IV nutrition was the perfect solution for those with compromised digestion, malabsorption, and chronic illness.
Listen up my red-eyed-heart-racing-can't-shut-off-the-brain friends - I've got some healthy, natural insomnia remedies for you! I've had my fair share of sleepless nights– and no, I don't even have kids! I've always been a night owl, plus I have Type A disorder + adrenal issues + a creative mind. And all that = extremely restless nights. Followed up by very crabby days.
I'm acutely aware of the lack of information out there about SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth), which is sad because it is now estimated that up to 78% of IBS cases can be attributed to Sibo. Also, a staggering 66% of patients with celiac disease tested positive for bacterial overgrowth according to the American Journal of Gastroenterology.
The struggle is REAL with whitening products. I've always been a bit obsessed with having non-yellowy teeth. I don't drink coffee or soda, which tremendously helps. But, still my teeth yellow over time because girl you know I'm drinking 1 billion cups of tea and chlorophyll water a day. (shrug) Plus, have you jumped on the wild blueberries bandwagon yet? Holy stains. The price we pay for those antioxidants.
A food expo where you can actually eat everything and not worry about your allergies? Can we live there? Forever? Sounds like a pretty sweet situation. Move in date: April 7-8, 2018 from 10-4pm.
Growing up, one of my favorite memories was going to Olive Garden with my Italian grandma and eating Pasta Fagoli and mountains of breadsticks. Although I can no longer have gluten or dairy, this soup comes pretty darn close and takes minutes to make.
Oh the struggle of finding a natural foundation. It's real, and it's pricey. Luckily, some brands are finally offering sample sizes — because who can figure out their shade ONLINE?! So I ordered a sample of this 14e Cosmetics Aloe Nourish Foundation and ended up ordering the full size. Cliff's Notes: loving it.
Sooooo, there aren't a ton of dining options in the hi-desert. I recently visited and before you go— definitely check out my Joshua Tree Travel Guide. Or as I like to refer to it, a list of the most instagramable spots. But luckily for you, there's actually quite a few healthy spots that make gluten free eating slightly easier. So let's go over your options of places right near the park.
Joshua Tree National Park is 790,636 acres — which is larger than the state of Rhode Island. So, you could explore this park forever. But, assuming you don't have forever, we're going to talk about the best things to see in Joshua Tree Park in one day. Let me just warn you, it'll blow your mind. It's like being on another planet. Also, Joshua Tree = Yucca Valley. Joshua trees are technically Yucca trees, in case that has confused you already in your research.
