FitTea 14 Day Detox

We‘ve seen it all over celebrity Instagram’s and the Kardashians drinking it like it’s water and today I finished my first 14 day FitTea Teatox. I have tried several other teatox’s before, but after seeing several people try FitTea I decided to finally give it a try! I have to say I didn’t notice any substantial changes in my body except I became less hungry as the 14 days went along and fund myself eating less.

I don’t think this tea helped me loss any weight like people have said, but maybe something to monitor if I decided to do another 14 day detox or even the 28 day detox, which maybe where consumers are seeing the results.

Also, this tea didn’t have a very appetizing taste. I love tea and trying new teas, but I have to say at first the tea was a struggle to drink. I would take a sip and want to dump the rest out. However, as the 14 days went along I acquired a taste for it and in the end enjoyed the tea as a whole.

The tea consists of Rooibos, Green Tea, Ginger, Oolong, Pomegranate, Stevia, Guarana, Citric Acid, Sea Salt (electrolytes), Lemon Juice, Honey, Matcha green Tea, Garcinia Cambogia and Extract.

It’s suggested to drink the tea every morning with or without breakfast and  add honey in the tea after steeping for 3-5 minutes.

If you are interested in trying FitTea you can find it at your local GNC for $24.99 for the 14 day detox or $ 44.99 for the 28 day detox.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016

NordstromOn July 14, Nordstrom welcomed card holders to shop early access at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and opens to the public on July 22 (tomorrow!). After shopping the sale myself I have to say Nordstrom did a fantastic job this year buying the perfect styles.

Just weeks before the sale I went to Nordstrom to buy a dress for a wedding and the hype for this Anniversary sale was like none I’ve heard before. Employees raved about the items that were bought for the sale with one employee at the Natick Mall in Natick, MA saying, “It’s the best selection I’ve seen for our anniversary sale” which made me very excited to shop it!

Now if you’re not familiar with Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale it’s basically Christmas in July for Nordstrom consumers and has become a staple sale at the store. The sale itself consists of brand-new fall and late summer merchandise marked down at low prices. With exclusive perks for Nordstrom card holders such as early access to the sale and more.

Interested in shopping this year’s Anniversary Sale? Be sure to check out your local Nordstrom between Friday, July 22 and Sunday, August 7, 2016.

Happy Shopping,

Tina

 

This year’s purchases consisted of:

Ray Ban Sunglasses

GAIAM 3-in-1 Strap & Sling Review

IMG_6027My mom loves to send me little care packages each month. This month consisted of a Two’s Company lunch box, Dunkin Donut K-Cups and the GAIAM 3-in-1 Strap & Sling. I loved everything as usual, but was really excited about one item in particular- the GAIAM 3-in-1 Strap & Sling, which functions as a yoga strap, resistance cord and mat sling.

This is a must have resistance cord for everyone who loves to use resistance cords for stretching or during workouts. Not only is it multi-function, but is covered with a soft fabric for an extra comfy grip unlike regular resistance cords. (Do you love yoga? This accessory is for you!).

This 3-in-1 Strap & Sling offers medium resistance and measures 31” L with two 4” handles on each end.

This resistance cord can be found online at https://www.gaiam.com, http://www.kohls.com or https://www.amazon.com and range anywhere between $9- $11 depending on where you purchase from.

I give the GAIAM 3-in-1 Strap & Sling 5/5 stars.

If you’re not escaping the city for the holiday weekend, here are a few things to check-out in the city this weekend.

  1. Red Sox Games 

What better way to spend the Fourth of July weekend than at the ball park watching America’s oldest sport. The Red Sox are slated to play the LA Angeles in this weekend’s home game series. With the Sox set for first pitch at 1:35 p.m. on July 4 against the Rangers. Below is a list of dates and times of this weekend’s Sox’s games.

  1. Freedom Trail

While spending the weekend in one of America’s historic cities take time out of the day to go on the Freedom Trail Tour. The Freedom Trail is a 2.5 mile, red –line that leads guest to 16 historical sites in Boston. Enjoy the sites and people of Boston as you step back in time with a local colonial Bostonian. For more information about tickets, and tours click here.

 

  1. Boston Common/Public Garden

This weather is looking perfect for the holiday weekend! What better way to not spend a dime and enjoy the Common and the Public Garden. Whether its people watching, lying out on the Common, taking photos or feeding the ducks it’s going to be a great weekend to take advantage of Boston’s free parks.

  1. Swans

Located in Boston Public Garden, the Swan Boats are a Boston attraction you can’t miss. Whether it’s your first time visiting the city or a local, the Swan Boats are enjoyable to young and old alike. The Swan Boats are open daily during the summer from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., with ticket prices set at $3.50 for adults and $2 for kids. I would suggest arriving early as the line gets long fast!

 

  1. Sea Port Bar Scene

Looking to celebrate America’s Birthday? My top pick to celebrate is in Boston’s Seaport! Below is a list of bars located in the Seaport:

  • The Atlantic Beer Garden
  • Whiskey Priest
  • Lookout Rooftop & Bar
  • Barking Crab
  • Lawn on D
  • The Envoy Hotel
  • Legal Harborside

 

  1. Boston Pop’s

The Boston Pop’s will be taking pace on July 3 & 4 at The Hatch Shell with guest appearances from Little Big Town, Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas. On July 3, enjoy entertainment from the Boston Pop’s with a concert beginning at 8:30p.m. (no fireworks). On July 4, gates open at 9 a.m. and the entertainment begins at 8:30 p.m. with a Boston Pop’s performance. Fireworks beginning at 10:30 p.m., I recommend getting to The Hatch Shell early as the lawn fills up fast!

Remember to be safe & responsible 🙂
