2013 In Review & Giveaway!

15 Dec

Boy, has it been a CRAZY year & my blogging has been slacking baaaaad!  I thought I would recap what we’ve been up to & WHY I have been so absent.

In July we found out I was pregnant (baby #3 here we come!).  That TOTALLY threw a wrench in my Virgin Diet routine.  I’ve still tried to keep my eating in check & as healthy as possible but the cravings have been getting the best of me.  Once baby arrives I will definitely be back on The Virgin Diet as soon as I can.

It's A Boy!

In addition to the baby news I have spent the last year creating my own natural line of beauty products.  Finally in October I launched Root & it was been such an exciting time!  After wearing Bare Minerals for over 10 years I was so sick of it.  I always wanted a natural foundation & assumed I had to live with the crappy coverage & lack of all day wearability.  After researching Bare Minerals more I found that their foundation wasn’t as natural as I thought it was & had some nasty fillers (one specifically Bismuth Oxychloride!).  I got ambitious & after a ton of research, hard work & nearly throwing in the towel, everything finally fell into place!  Everyone who tries Root absolutely LOVE the products!  I am so proud of the fantastic 100% natural products we have developed.  (Root Pearl Powder Mineral Foundation & Bronze Mineral Powder are COMPLETELY safe to be worn on The Virgin Diet, too!)

My New Year Resolution is to organize my entire house (wish me luck)!  It has gotten pretty crazy with two kids & needs some much needed TLC.  I’m thinking of possibly blogging my organization plan… is that something you guys would be interested in?

Wishing you all a very Merry Holiday season!






Water & Meal Timing for The Virgin Diet

22 Jan

There are a lot of different components to The Virgin Diet & keeping track of them all can be a lot of work. I am going to try to break them down from what I’ve learned from the book & my experience so far. Water & meal timing are KEY to succeeding with the diet. (On pages 172-175 you can find the details on meal timing & hydration.)

I have been doing The Virgin Diet now for 6 days & have been asked by several people what it is. This post is much longer than my typical posts but explains the overall diet for you. In future posts I will be sharing more information on certain areas of the diet, recipes, tips & my success. I have been a healthy eater for a while but nothing I have done has made as much sense as this diet! If you have any questions feel free to ask & I will definitely help you as best as I can.
