The most recognizable feature of your appearance is the face,right? Well I went to Virginia Clinic (Maidan Hawally,block 11) for a facial. *ok now pick up the jaw off the floor* It is perfectly ok for men to get facials as well, especially since we are almost all doing cosmetic surgery just like the ladies. Anyway,I had a diamond facial,just basically pore cleansing and skin cleaning,getting rid of black heads. While there I found out they offer a variety of cosmetic services for both males and females! anything from laser hair removal,hair therapy,liposuction etc.
I was “sister-sitting” pretty much the entire weekend or I was a designated driver for my lil brat of a sister, who enjoyed putting me through the torture of taking her everywhere she fancied including having me wait at pinkberry (ok that part at pinkberry I enjoyed) while she was doing whatever girls do at Bloom Salon in Jabriya.
I was happy that the salon (this time) was a very short distance from home and that she came out satisfied,which meant I could go straight home without having to stop at another salon for whatever time she chose!
Anyway, I quizzed her about the place and she told me it is fairly new and she had been recommended to go there by another friend of her’s. She said the service was pretty good and I told her if she really wants to know how excellent the service is, she must go when its packed.
So, all the women who love our blog and are looking for a new place to try for their manicures,hair, etc. You can try bloom salon.
Thank God I’m a guy,these things are simpler for us yes? I mean, there will be that odd occasion a guy wants to get his nails done and all but we keep it simple and moving!
I must admit that I was feeling a bit tired and out of energy but after I had my “Beets Boost” juice it really boosted my energy! Apples, Red Beets, Lemon and Pineapple did wonders on me! I feel so energetic all of a sudden.
“Beets Boost” contains Vitamin A, B, and C, folic acid, potassium, iron, calcium, boron, carotenes, and manganese.
This juice flushes the toxins out of the body while supplying it with the main nutrients. Apple reduces cholesterol, protects your bone and is natures best known detoxifier. The lemon boosts your immune system, balances pH, flushes out unwanted minerals, purifies the blood and cleanses the liver and kidneys. Beetroot is nature’s best blood builder. I am proud of myself that I made it this far, join me at 8 PM I will be having the “Master Cleanse.”
I just had my “Green Power” and I must say I feel stuffed! It was so fulfilling that the thought of food hasn’t even crossed my mind at all. “Green Power” consists of: Apples, Kale, Lemon, Baby Spinach Leaves, Celery, Cucumber, Broccoli, and Avocado.
The Vitamins include: B1, B2, B6, C and D, iron, fibre, potassium, folic acid, manganese, beta carotene, phosphorus, sodium and zine.
Quite simply, fresh vegetable juice is the most wonderful gift you can give your body. This power house in particular is the richest source of alkalinity, organic hydration and essential minerals that you can ingest, in the most readily digestible and absorbent form. “Green Power” is KING when it comes to detoxification and cellular renewal.
“The swiftest and most effective dietary alkalizers are freshly extracted raw vegetable juices.” – Daniel Reid, The Tao of Detox
Update: At 2 PM I had the “Super Detox” again, it tasted so much better than the first time and I feel fuller than before, everyone around me is eat Mc Donald’s and I am not craving at all. At 5 PM I will be having the “Beets Boost,” stay tuned for that!
Goood Morning Everyone! I feel fantastic after having my 8 AM juice and it actually tasted pretty good! I consulted a friend who is a nutritionist and who has been on the detox several times before, to help me with the juices. I will have a total of 5 juices for three days starting today. I will have my first juice at 8 AM and the last one at 8 PM.
At 8 AM today I had what my friend likes to call the “Super Detox,” it consists of: apple, broccoli, beet root, carrot, celery, cucumber, lemon, bell pepper, and avocado. This is full of vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, C, E, &K, magnesium, calcium, potassium, iron, folic acid, riboflavin, pectin, phosphorus, boron, beta-carotene, and anti-cancer phytonutrients. It also contains essential fatty acids, good carbohydrates and amino acids.
The beets are shown to reduce high blood pressure, cleanse the bloodstream, liver and kidneys. The celery has many advantages to your body: fights cancer, lowers cholesterol, aids in digestion, diuretic, and anti-inflammatory. Avocado protects your eyes with lutein, improves your cardiovascular system, helps regulate blood sugar, increases collagen production, and is an antioxidant booster.
I usually just have a glass of milk in the morning and leave the house but to be totally honest I have never felt so alive in ages! Just this one juice gave me an amazing amount of energy. Stay tuned for 11 Am, i’m going to be having “Green Power.”
Do you ever have those moments when you feel like you need to get away from it all? No cellphones ringing, no TV blaring, no emails or social networking. Sometimes it’s nice to get away from the busy 24/7 society we live in and just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet that nature has to offer. We call this a vacation but actually it’s a detox. The word detox often gets a bad wrap but really it’s just a special treatment that helps a person to stop using a product or substance.
I recently asked some friends if anyone had been on a juice detox and whether they liked it and what the results were. I got a lot of different replies. There were those that had done a juice detox and were happy with the results and those that hadn’t and thought it wasn’t a beneficial way to diet or eat. Do I think that juicing is a good way to lose weight? Not really. I think eating a diet full of a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables is a better and healthier way to achieve weight lost. Do I think a juice detox has benefits? Yes, I do!
Why am I doing a juice detox?
Most people juice in an effort to lose weight, improve their diet and eliminate the unhealthy foods they currently consume. This is not the case for me, I am at a healthy weight. So why do I want to do a juice detox? Bottom line – I’ve stopped listening to my body to give me cues. I eat breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday and mindlessly eat what is on my plate. Often times throughout the week I find myself feeling like I ate too much food. My life is busy and hectic and I’m putting most of my effort into outside influences and I’ve lost focus on my body. I want to give my body a break from the hurried eating routine that I’ve gotten myself into.
The benefits of juice detox?
While my main reason for doing a juice detox is to give me a chance to focus on my body there are other benefits that I’m looking forward to:
Improves focus & Mental Clarity
Stronger Immune System
Better Overall Mood
Healthier hair, skin and nails
Reduced cravings for junk food
Since today is Thursday, I am going to enjoy my weekend and start my juice detox on Sunday. I am going to be doing the 3 day juice detox and I will be filling you in each day as to how I am doing. I’ll share the good, the bad and the ugly. If you have any specific questions please feel free to ask, I’ll also be posting the juices, the ingredients and what benefits they have on your body. In the meantime, check out this great documentary about juicing – Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. Wish me luck!
The Body Shop, one of the 21st Century’s most iconic and pioneering brands, is launching an aspirational new beauty movement that will inspire and engage customers for generations to come and transform the boundaries of beauty. Called Beauty With Heart, this new beauty movement will mobilize new generations of consumers to join forces as a community of activist-minded beauty devotees.
Beauty With Heart places unprecedented emphasis on a beauty experience that is much more than skin-deep. Through its Beauty with Heart Movement, The Body Shop is putting a very human stamp on beauty, empowering consumers the world over to not only look good but to feel good and do good through using the brand’s products. How do you look good, feel good, and do good you might ask?
Look Good: As a result of products that are powered by nature and rich in the highest quality ingredients that deliver true beauty innovation and efficacy to our customers.
Feel Good: As a result of the rich sensual textures that burst out of our products onto the skin and because these products come from an inherently ethical brand that cares about people, the planet, and animal welfare.
Do Good: Through engaging with a brand that encourages and takes concrete actions to help others, through its community Fair Trade program; through its campaigns; through its commitment to animal welfare; and through its endeavor to protect the planet.
Look Good+Feel Good+Do Good = This powerful combination gives consumers the confidence to express themselves with attitude and infectious energy.
Beauty With Heart will spring to life through a new and highly innovative store experience called Pulse, as well as through the support of Lily Cole, the embodiment of the brand’s strong values and the first of a community of inspiring young activists.
“We know that our brand delivers more than beauty; our products truly contain heart as well. Today, we’re looking to a future where our vision of beauty can be experienced by new generations for whom it is all about looking good, feeling good and doing good, too.” – Sophie Gasperment, Executive Chairman.
