#FitTeaDetox - A 28-day Regimine

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

"Give Us a Few Weeks and We'll Give You a New Waistline"

Now that we are finally saying goodbye to Chiberia, and getting some warm weather it's time to get ready for swimsuit season! Recently I've seen many friends post about doing a detox as a way to get ready for the summer. I had never done one before but have been given the opportunity to try FitTea. FitTea is a 28 day Tea Detox. 

The detox has two components. The first is of course the tea. Drink a cup of tea every morning, or just before you do your regular fitness routine. My favorite current fitness routine is running after a toddler trying to get her ready for daycare. So after I get ready I make my tea and put in my travel mug. Out the door we go. I do Zumba a couple of days a week and try to walk as much as I can; nothing too rigorous these days. But once the weather cooperates I hope to hit the pavement running.

The FitTea is designed to give you energy, boost your metabolism, aid in digestive health and boost fat-loss naturally in problem areas.

FitTea smells delicious, definitely has some fruity flavors, and its very soothing. Makes it very enjoyable to drink. The ingredients in the tea include: Organic Green Tea, Oolong Wu Yi, Organic Rooibos, Ginger, Pomegranate, Guarana, Birch, Stevia, Corn and Honey Powder. 

According to FitTea, "These ingredients provide a fast-working and natural detox. These natural ingredients have other benefits besides detox, which includes weight loss, increased energy levels, suppressing the appetite, and natural antioxidants. Natural teas like FitTea have been used all over the world for thousands of years for weight loss and increased energy which helps anyone with a fitness program."

FitTea also offers a caffeine-free alternative. (Ingredients: Holy Basil (Tulsi), Spearmint, Rosehips, Lemon Myrtle, and Linden Blossoms).

The second part of the 28-day detox entails taking two FitTea African Mango Complex Fat Burner capsules prior to a meal. You need to take them with 8 ounces of water.  They have no flavor and the capsules are easy to swallow. 

We’ll see if I can keep up with the 28-day regimen and see if there are some good results. But I think at this point in my life I am looking to get an energy boost from natural ingredients so I can keep up with my toddler! 

Don't forget FitTea
-Boosts immune system (build a rock solid immune system!)
-Promotes fat burning
-Promotes and soothes digestion

#ChiShoeLoverParty – DSW’s Spring Trend Checklist

This past Thursday some friends and I were lucky enough to attend the DSW sponsored #ChiShoeLoverParty at the newly remodeled Clark/Halsted location. Along with enjoying complimentary appetizers and Margaritas/Wine, we were also treated to a swag bag (tumbler, pen, pencil) and a $75 bonus card to make a purchase at the store. We obviously went shoe crazy! I was particularly happy with this location as they featured so many shoes in the 5.5 and 6 size, which are usually hard to come by in the ‘burbs.

There was a short presentation on what styles we will be seeing this coming season; neutral sandals, to pretty pumps to blinged-out flats (and even some room for cute sneakers)! And can’t forget the accessories! DSW recently launched its own jewelry line named One Wink, which is available in stores.

We spent the rest of the night searching for the perfect shoes. I ended up with some cute Lauren by Ralph Lauren Espadrilles (see similar here) and G by Guess Gladiator Sandals. And I may have gone a little crazy in the scarf section. I figured they were on sale so why not. I also purchased a hat. I have this thing where I buy cute hats and scarves and then never wear them!  Hoping to change that soon.

Be sure to sign up for their rewards program which offers some great perks!

#ItsAllClear with Murad Acne Clearing Solution

Thanks to the Style Hunters Network for sending me this brand new product from Murad. It’s the Murad Acne Clearing Solution (retails for $39).

So why would someone use this product? To treat breakouts, redness and restore skin clarity.

As a thirty-something female you’d think I would be done with breaking out, but alas it still does happen. But that is actually not my biggest concern at the moment. For me it’s the redness on my face. It just looks like I’m always embarrassed. And well that’s embarrassing!

I have been using the lotion for five days and have seen a great improvement in the redness on my face. It’s not gone, gone, but it is definitely lighter, more of a pink (I like pink). And of course I've had no breakouts either. See below for before and after pics (no filter).
