Outfit of the Night: Fifty Shades of Green

outfit-under-the-sticks

I threw together this outfit for a birthday dinner last night and was in love with the pop of colors up top, subdued by my neutral boots and bag. The blouse has easily become one of my favorites; it’s flowy, bright, and super versatile. I could pair it with black pants and nude heels for a fancier outfit, too! Wanna know what the best part of the outfit was? My boots hid my ankle brace. Style and stability, friends!

Win your own MOBOT Foam Roller Water Bottle!

Ever since I got my MOBOT, I’ve been using it nonstop. I’m usually bad at drinking enough water for the day, so I feel much more accountable now that I’ve been carrying it around everywhere. I’ve gotten so many compliments about it, especially since the Juicyfruit matches my cast right now! ;)

MOBOTs are perfect for staying hydrated, relaxing muscles, and keeping you at the peak of your fitness. It took me a while to get comfortable with foam rolling, but I’ve been devoted to it for a year or so now. Foam rolling has tons of benefits, and the bottles are BPA free, come in a variety of colors, and are easy to stash in your gym bag or purse. I’m heading out of town next weekend, and I’m definitely packing this in my bag. I don’t have any plane rides planned anytime soon, but I’m definitely taking one in my carry-on to fill up after I get to the gate. Plus, I’m sure it’ll double quite well as a pillow! One of my favorite features besides the obvious foam roller is the straw. Nothing’s cool about spilled water, right? Rumor has it you can easily fill it with a beverage/liquid of your choice, just do it responsibly!

Don’t freeze the bottle, though; if you want cold water, just throw some ice in it. It’s tested to hold up a ton of weight, so don’t be shy when it comes to rolling out. Needless to say, the MOBOT is perfect for athletes and non-athletes alike, because everyone could use a little muscle lovin’.  I’m not sure how no one thought of this before, because it’s absolutely brilliant!

Twelve Thoughts You Have While on a Juice Cleanse

So you think you’re ready to try a juice cleanse? Here are ten things that will probably cross your mind throughout it all…

1. This is going to be easy. Drinking? Juice? I can do that in my sleep.

drinking
2. I need something to bite on. Bite. Bagels. Bagel Bites. CARBS!

3. Wow, this would make a really good mixer. Tequila is organic, right?

booze
4. I’m not hungry. I’m not thirsty. Why do I feel like I could eat an entire McDonalds?

hape
5. Oh my gosh. Why am I peeing so much? I must be a diabetic now. I’m going to lose my foot. Great. This is how it ends. A slow and painful death, caused by veggies and fruits.

6. I have to drink HOW MANY more ounces today?

7. Is guacamole considered a raw vegetable?

8. Could everyone just be a tiny bit quieter? There’s really no reason to yell….so-tired
9. These aren’t tears…they’re just juice particles. Leaving my eyes.

10. Ok, cool. I’ve got this under control. This really isn’t that bad. Only one more day to go. Oh, look! A danish!

give-it-to-me
11. This is completely worth it. I want to do this. My body needs this. Why is that danish still looking at me?

12. I LOVE YOU SOLID FOOD. I’ll never leave you again!! Except in three months when I cleanse again…
