Wish list + The fruit flush...........


Happy hump day ladies!!! Can I get whoop whoop that this week is half way over!! I know by Friday after the flush I'll be crying for some real food haha!!

Can't stop dreaming about this tank. Looks so good with jean shorts, but I could picture it into fall with dark skinny jeans too!!


This beautiful blue dream was just marked down and now it's under $40.00. 


Staying true to my love for rompers, I think I may have to add this one to my cart.

I have been on the hunt for the perfect barre/yoga top and I think I found it. It swears it holds the girls in while you do the funky poses. Plus, the price isn't bad either.


This maxi is gorgeous!! I love the detail on the top. Plus I love how to hugs the prefect part of your waist making it so flattering!


Everyone's favorite shorts are back in stock at Lilly Pulitzer. I have these in the white, and I wear them all the time. They truly feel like pajama shorts, but look so fancy. I really want the navy ones to just toss on with a white tank.


Also thought I would share these cover ups that my sister in law and I scored while at the beach. I loved them so much that I grabbed another one at J.Crew Outlet on Tuesday. Such a great price and so cute. 

In the red I am wearing an xs and the blue print I have on an xxs.

Now onto my Fruit flush that I start today. I am not going to lie, I am pretty nervous. But I know I can do it, plus it's only 3 days. I can do anything for three days! I have wanted to do a cleanse or some sort of detox for a while now but they were all just way too intimidating. So after vacation I made it my mission to find one that I knew would work for me and one that I would be able to stick to. The fruit flush to me seems very manageable, and I can't wait to see how it works and I how I feel afterwards.

Here is a sample diet plan I found for the flush, and I plan to follow it almost exactly to this one.


Day 1

The first day is a preparation for the fruit flush which you will do on the second and third days. You are required to drink a 6 oz. protein drink every 2 hours starting at 8 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m. To make the drink, simply mix 32 oz. of water with 1 1/4 cup egg whites or whey protein powder. An hour after your protein drink, you should consume at least 8 to 12 oz. of filtered water. You can always drink more if you are thirsty at any time of day.
At 6 p.m. you may have 3 to 6 cups of a raw vegetable salad. You can use any vegetables you like, provided you include plenty of leafy greens. For the dressing, use 1 tbsp. olive oil. You may also have 3 to 6 oz. of lean chicken, fish or turkey to go with your salad. 1 hour after your meal, you should consume at least 8 to 12 oz. of water.

Days 2 and 3

Days 2 and 3 is when you do the actual flush, and you are required to consume lots of fresh fruits throughout the day, followed by a vegetable salad at dinner.
  • 8 a.m. 2 cups of cubed cantaloupe
  • 10 a.m. 2 cups of strawberries
  • 12 p.m. 1 banana
  • 2 p.m. 2 medium apples
  • 4 p.m. 1 large mango
  • 6 p.m. 3 to 6 cups of raw vegetable salad with lots of leafy greens and 1 to 2 tbsp. olive or flax seed oil for the dressing. You may top your salad with 1/2 avocado, sliced or cubed. You may also have a protein drink made with 12 oz. of water and 5 tbsp. of whey protein powder or egg whites.
You should drink at least 8 to 12 oz. of water 1 hour after each serving of fruit, as well as 1 hour after your salad. 
If you are not used to this kind of dieting, you may find yourself getting very hungry in between the protein shakes or servings of fruit. Drinking lots of water in between will help to satisfy the hunger. You may also find yourself get tired easily, and therefore exercise or hard work is not recommended during this 3 day fruit flush.
While on the fruit flush, you should avoid coffee, tea, juice and sodas, as well as canned foods and dried or frozen fruits and vegetables.

  1. That actually sounds kind of tasty and doable but I would probably have to check myself into a hotel to avoid the temptation of food at home! Good luck!

  3. I did a 3 fruit cleanse ( unlimited fruits and veggies considered fruits) last year via Baron Baptiste's 40 day program and it was actually a lot easier than I thought. Good luck!

  5. Looks like a pretty yummy cleanse actually. I've never heard of the fruit cleanse. I'm actually doing a little soup detox for 3 days too. It's felt good so far!

  11. That maxi is stunning!! How do the Lilly shorts run? I really want a pair since I need some elastic waists after having my little one (spanx every day just isn't fun)!

  12. Any idea if flavored sparkling water is ok in place of regular water? No calories or sugar...
