In my first #CleanAndLean post I’ve promised to publish the second part this weekend. But I’ve realized that it’s summer, and a lot of you want to start a new regimen as soon, as possible. So here is part two today…
I did not take photos of every single meal because: a) I don’t carry a good camera with me all the time b) sometimes I was so hungry, that taking photos was the last thing I would think of… But there are quite a few anyway. The menu is also included.
Day 1, Tuesday
I am not gonna lie, today was pretty hard. I usually eat more for breakfast, and often have toasts, so by the lunch time I was ravenous. This is why I did end up chewing the salad for almost as many times, as James recommends, enjoying it to the fullest.
Later in the day, I had to be away from the office, so couldn’t have my second snack (berries), so was really looking forward to them. I don’t remember when was the last time I’ve tasted such delicious berries! I never though I could be so grateful for them, ahem.
Unfortunately, dinner got delayed, and I have no idea how I’ve managed to spend 7.3 hours (had lunch at 1 and dinner at 8.30) with berries being my only food. I’ve cheated a bit and bought myself a small orange juice. Well, at least I did not go for the ice-cream that I was dying to get. As for dinner, it was the best chicken of my life. Somehow I was so full that couldn’t finish my portion.
Day 2, Wednesday
I’ve never tried rice milk before, always wanted to, but somehow never did. And, let me tell you, it’s delicious, plus all the nuts, it was good.
I wasn’t starving until lunch, woohoo, maybe this breakfast and snack were more filling, or maybe I am getting used to it? I am also excited that today I am having chicken with salsa and salad with spinach and avocado. Thank God that I love spinach, avocado, and broccoli and eat them a lot anyway, otherwise, I don’t know how I’d be able to stick to this eating plan.
Mince Sauce for sinner was pretty awesome with beef and tonnes of veggies, from courgette and peas to aubergine and celery. Somehow, I couldn’t finish it this time, too. I think, tomorrow, I will make a smaller portion than James suggests.
So far, I’d say that I get less for breakfast and for lunch than I am used to, and more for dinner. Hmmm…
Day 3, Thursday
I woke upRead More
Clinique brought out quite a few new products. And, although Clinique is not the first brand that I turn to when I am shopping for makeup, some of the colours look incredible on the promos, so I will have to see them in real life.
There are four new shades of the Chubby Stick Shadows, and don’t they just look beautiful and so much fun?! It’s amazing to see something different from the usual bronze and gold shade for the eyes.
The new shades are already available from Harrods for £17.
One more product that makes me pretty excited is the brand’s newRead More
It’s time for May beauty favourites! It was very hard to narrow things down but I’ve managed to, almost.
This month I was away for two weeks (one week at one place, and then another one – different one), but I always had Elemis Skin Brush (review) with me, and I’ve used it religiously. I personally use it on the dry body, brushing towards the heart. The results are amazing, but you can read all the dets in my review linked above. I have two Elemis brushes, because I just had to! And I would definitely recommend you picking one up.
I did take a picture of only ten products on purpose, so that I don’t go on and on in this post. But I just have to mention this Rouge Bunny Rouge brush, it’s my staple now.
Dior Addict 561 Baby Rose Lipstick (review and lip swatches)
You all know that I am a huge Givenchy Le Rouge fan. I think that is the most beautiful lipstick ever released.
After brining out the classic black packaging the brand created several different case variations, but non of them made my heart go faster.
Until I saw a burgundy leather design several weeks ago. My instant reaction was: “OMG, I need this NOW!” That was the only beauty product I could think of since that time.
Although my local Givenchy counter still doesn’t have this collection, it is already available fromRead More
Regular readers probably know that I am a huge fan of almost all makeup looks from the latest Gucci fashion shows. In fact, I even did a feature about it.
Also, I like Gucci as a brand, their products are always chic and sophisticated. This is why I was very exciting when I first heard rumours that Gucci were planning to launch a makeup.
Now we finally do have some details. First of all, the face of the line is a gorgeous Charlotte Casighari, which is not surprising at all, considering that she already works with the brand, and, in my opinion, fits perfectly.
So what about the makeup itself? Here is how it looks like!Read More
