Souvenir Magazine, Lady Bug Crostini, It's All Good...

Souvenir Magazine's summer issue is out and it is beautiful!
I have contributed to 5 issues so far,  but this one is my 
favorite. Find my simple Lady Bug crostini recipe in this issue and more!
Grab your copy today. HERE

I bought It's All Good by Gwyneth Paltrow a few months back.  
 I have been trying out the recipes and they are delicious!!! 
 If you have read the book you would know they reference a doctor by the name of
  Dr. Junger's and his 21-Day Cleanse, and programs. 

My husband and I tried our first juice cleanse a few months back from 
HERE,  and we felt really good.  We have been working out 6 days a week,
 but feel our bodies are stuck and need to be pushed.
We have tried to maintain some what of a clean eating diet but, I am Italian and love my breads and pasta's, so do my kids. We know that this is a process and something we can not do over night, 
but we have made SERIOUS changes.

On our last doctor's visit a final suggestion was made to enlist in a wellness spa and retreat. 
The place we are going is booked for months and very difficult to get into!!!   The planets have aligned and there was a cancellation and we got in this coming weekend! I can't believe it! 
They will teach us how to live clean with cooking classes, 
one-on-one mentoring, scrubs, a detox using castro oil. Kinda scared about that, but just an overall
overhaul!!!  I will be sharing what I learn here on my blog.

My hubby and I love fitness and most of our friends think we
 nuts and should be spending time at a wine vineyard somewhere.

We prefer to take care of our body, mind and spirit, and 
know that in the long run the reward will be greater. 
We can't wait to do this together and know this will be a bonding experience and feel
this will take us to a new level!

We are going to start a joint 
fitness journal and will be sharing it once we feel comfortable.

They say this spa is LIFE CHANGING, 
not that my life needs changing because
its pretty amazing as it it! 
We shall see about that...

I am looking for our before's and well share after's when
we feel good! Stay tuned...


P.S. I don't want to disclose the location . If you 
read the book and follow Dr. Junger you can find many resources from him.
Also there a going to be some changes on my blog this week please ignore as we are
