review: roots pressed juices.

Okay, SO. Some days we don’t feel so great. Too many late nights, too many dinners that consist of cheese and crackers (or worse, PIZZA), not enough exercise…ugh. Bottom line, some days we just want to feel clean. Get back to basics. You get it.

L was in Atlanta last week, so we met for lunch at Roots Pressed Juices, located in the Shops Around Lenox. We were a little apprehensive, but in the interest of good health, we dove in. Bottom line: one week later, we feel much better. Here’s what we tried:

The Glitter Life Roots Juices
here goes nothing.

Liver Cleanse: We each got one (don’t judge). Um…it’s pretty bad. The main ingredient is beet juice, so basically it tastes like you put your face in a pile of dirt. HOWEVER…we both got it down, and we feel better for it.

The Glitter Life Liver Cleanse
rough, but worth it.

Fat Fighter: Not good, but not that bad, either. Tastes like sour grapefruit juice. Definitely better ice cold.

Skin Glow: Decent. Has a pronounced celery flavor. J liked it!

Immune Booster: Pretty good! L chugged it on the way to Augusta last Friday. Worth it.

The Glitter Life Immune Booster
we recommend.

Health Nut: This is delicious. We both think it tastes too good to be good for us. A must try.

Wake Up: Not horrible. The first sip isn’t fun, but it gets easier.

The Glitter Life Wake Up
sip by sip.

Detox H20: Sometimes, this is all you need. And it’s super easy to make at home. Cayenne pepper, filtered water, & lemon juice. Done and done.

The Glitter Life Detox
we just want to feel CLEAN.

a lush review.

Hi ladies!

As you saw in the weekend wrap-up, J purchased a few items at Lush: A fresh handmade cosmetics line. Let’s see what the buzz is about.

J says:

I heard a lot of great things about Lush in Macy’s Lenox Mall and decided to give their face scrub a try. Naturally, I left with more than just that. Here are the goods.

Lush Cosmetics
on a mission for perfect skin…

Herbalism Facial Cleanser: Best suited to those who have tried everything under the sun to clear up their oily and blemish prone skin. I must say, I saw results right away! No more blocked pores for this lady…

Herbalism Scrub
step 1.

Ayesha Fresh Face Mask: As I was checking out with my one and only item, I noticed a bar with various masks. Wrinkles in mind, I chose the Ayesha Fresh Face Mask with spellbinding ingredients to smooth wrinkles. One word: Magical.  My skin was fresh, clean, toned, bright and soft. A must try.

step 2.

Skin’s Shangri LA: Whilst checking out, the super sweet sales associate offered me a sample of the Skin’s Shangri LA moisturizer. I’ll be honest, I was a little turned off by the smell (not great), BUT the results were fantastic. It took away redness overnight and made my skin feel soft and rejuvenated.

Hi ladies!

I was recently invited to a Jezebel Magazine happy hour at C. Wonder: the latest and greatest store in Lenox Mall. Y’all. This store is beyond and looked quite familiar… C. Wonder was started by Chris Burch, Tory’s ex. Awkward. Moving on.

The concept is preppy designs, bold prints, enameled bangles—at average prices less than $40. In personalized fitting rooms, shoppers can customize lighting and music. There’s on-site engraving and monogramming too!

How could you say no to this adorable invite!?
