Crazily enough, spring is here and happening, people! Spring, to me and probably to many of you as well, is a time to get rid of all the old and pave a fresh start for the spring + summer ahead. Although we all make strides in getting rid of old junk around our house - some neglect to turn their attention inwards and focus on cleaning your body out. If it's important to clean your home of all its toxic energy and waste, why isn't important to take the time and energy to do that for yourself? I could go on forever about this - but how about we just cut to 5 tips I have for spring cleaning your body? Lets go!

 1. Cleanse + Clean Eating
Step Inside My Closet - 5 Tips For Spring Cleaning Your Body - Jus By Julie, The Shopping Bag, Sweaty Betty, Kayla Itsines, A Cup Of Quotes, lucky, beauty obsessions, A Cup Of Quotes, Mr. Bean, Blogilates,
I know, Oh my God, what a thought - another juice cleanse. Get out of here, Ann. But wait! I have never been high on the juice cleanse trend either, but that was before I tasted Jus by Julie. Her juices aren't cold pressed, which means you are getting every natural benefit from the graciously short ingredient list in every bottle. My favorite? PB + Jus. It tastes like you're drinking a straight up PB+J, but here's the difference, this one is all natural sugars and benefits for days. Plus, peanut butter can make me love anything. If you're not into juice cleanses, one of these bottles are great for a snack. Or zest up your coffee game with their probiotic coffees. Another thing? They have soups too! Gluten free! Vegan! Natural! Are you not as excited as I am?! All bottles are $6 with free shipping! To get the code check out their site: JusByJulie.com

Keep in mind that once you're done with your cleanse, focus on clean eating. You don't have to have the purest vegetables and fruits picked by your wholesome hands from the farmer's market - not everyone has that time / money. Just focus on incorporating veggies and fruits as the majority of your diet to make sure your body is getting the love and nutrients it deserves. Veggies and fruits are limitless too - so don't worry about eating too much. Detoxing veggies that I love are brussel sprouts, celery, cauliflower, artichokes, asparagus, and my truest love AVOCADOS. 

2. Oil Pulling (Not as gross as it sounds!)

Oil pulling! It's not as gross as it sounds, trust me. Swishing around oil in your mouth for 20 minutes on an empty stomach may not sound quite appealing to you, but after you've done it several times - you reap its benefits! Coconut oil has antibacterial properties which helps clean everything out. It also strengthens your teeth, whitens your teeth, and pulls out all the gunk from your tonsils / glands. You know what else it does? Clears your skin! I have seen great results by getting up and doing an oil pull while I get everything prepared to start my day. Don't overthink it. Feed your dog, check some e-mails, play with Snapchat filters, prepare your #OOTD, all while detoxing your body for the day! Do it. And when you do it tweet me and tell me how not so bad it actually is! (@SInsideMyCloset).

3. Sweat It All Out

This girl freaking loves exercising, but I know it's not everyones cup of tea. It's important to find something that doesn't feel like exercise though. Lots of stress? Knock it out with kickboxing. Or stretch it out with yoga. Got the blues? Take a walk or a run on the treadmill or outdoors in the sunshine. Want to connect with your breath while lengthening and strengthening? Pilates it up at home (Blogilates!) or at a class! Right now I've been following Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide and truly feel apart of the BBG Army! Only 28 minutes a day and I can already feel myself getting stronger - and baby abs are definitely saying hello! 

Another thing that helps your workout is clothing, duh. I am loving this Sweaty Betty Knock Out tank for my kickboxing days. The fabric is thin, soft, and completely breathable. Plus, if you keep up your routine - you'll feel and look like a knock out!

4. Renew Your Skin

So we've almost covered internal spring cleaning, but your skin needs attention too. I know I faltered on my winter skin care, but I'm trying to perk it all back up this spring. Coconut, coffee, vitamin E, and sea salt all have come together to make Mr. Bean body scrub. It smells delicious and makes your skin so soft and smooth! I got the coconut version + mandarin orange version +  body oil all at The Shopping Bag! Their beauty section is seriously hoppin'!

5. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

Bottoms up! If you haven't heard it a million times before, drink water, drink more water, and then drink even more water. It is the most easiest and fastest way to flush out toxins from your system. After you've done your oil pulling in the morning, the next step is to wake up your digestive system gently with some warm lemon water. This helps flush out anything from the day before and wake your body up for the day ahead. Don't stop there! Keep sipping! I like getting my water in with large water bottles like this Sip Happens Mason Jar Water Bottle from A Cup Of Quotes. The 20 oz. container and straw makes it easier to guzzle down your water intake for the day. Use code BLOGANDCOFFEE at check out for free shipping on your order!


I hope that these tips find you well and help you reach a place of pure spring cleaning wellness bliss! Have another suggestion? I want to hear about it! Tweet me @SInsideMyCloset

Damask Dreams

Leave a Comment
Step Inside My Closet - Damask Dreams -DVF, lucky, outfit ideas, Steve Madden, The Shopping Bag, Tibi,
If you didn't know by now, DVF is one of my favorite designers. It's not only because I love every item of every season, but who doesn't adore DVF's way of living? Love is life life is love...

I've basically written a love letter about DVF in my The Woman I Want To Be post. Honestly, go read her books and you'll be looking at life in a whole different way. My way of life? 
Making everyday sparkle. 

This delicate sequin black lace top by DVF is what I live for at the moment. It's delicate, but it's sparkle and shine adds a playful element. The intricate but simplistic work makes it a show stopper and the main focal point of any outfit. To keep it that way, I paired it with what I like to call the basic blogger skirt.

What blogger haven't you seen this type of skirt on before? It's a great basic and who doesn't live for those, "Oh! You caught me mid twirl with everything from my hair down to my shoes perfected! I look like I'm having a great time, don't I?

I'm not being pessimistic, just poking a little fun at what we all do, including myself...Waldorf Wardrobe post anyone? Anyways, this perfect black skirt is by Tibi. Although I don't tend to gravitate towards longer skirts like this, it's nice to come out of your comfort zone once in awhile. 

But what oddly enough keeps me comfortable is high heels. I can't get enough of them and don't have enough of them, although my closet would say otherwise. This go-to pair black pump is by Steve Madden in the version Proto. Comfortable and a classic, like me but without the bad puns or very sarcastic humor. 

Jewelry! Now this is what makes an outfit sparkle. This Juniper Tassel Drop Earrings are from The Shopping Bag. Fringe is in, and so are big earrings - so why not combine the two? That's exactly what these earrings did. They're so lightweight as well! I cannot get enough of them. 

So, what is your daily mantra for life...or just for a day by day basis? 

Top: DVF

Skirt: Tibi

Shoes: Steve Madden

Illuminating Monday

Illuminating Monday - Step Inside My Closet - Kim Kardashian, lucky, Lumee, nine west, outfit ideas, Smith + Cult, Sponsor, The Shopping Bag,
Hello Monday - and hello to you! Yes, I admit, I've been dropping the ball on blogging lately, but life got busy and Fashion Week started...and now we're here. So, how does one integrate themselves back into the blogging world? With a luxe for less look that totally screams Kim Kardashian / Kendall Jenner.

Although I am not blessed with the sought after famous butt or curves, this girl doesn't mind snagging some style tips from the famous E! clan. What Kim Kardashian has been all about lately is draping a jacket over her shoulders. This look ( although to anyone else it just looks like someone didn't have enough time to put on their coat) is very fashion forward and a minimalist way to add a chic look to your outfit when you're in my situation - racing to get out the door on time. Anyhoo, this superb chic and super soft jacket is from The Shopping Bag. I love the structure of this coat and the light grey color that blends perfectly with this navy two piece.

Curve hugging two pieces like this navy wrap one from The Shopping Bag reads very Kendall Jenner. It's straight forward, chic, minimalist, and the knit style fabric once again makes me feel like I almost have my pajamas on instead of something super fabulous. 

To round out the minimalist nature that this outfit promotes, a nude shoe is the perfect pair to have on hand when your running out the door. This strappy pair from Nine West is super comfortable and all the rage. There hasn't been one stylish celebrity that I haven't seen this shoe on! 

There's two more things that make this a total Kim K. approved outfit - the lips and the lighting. My go-to make up touch up before leaving the house is this Sara Happ light pink color from The Shopping Bag. It moisturizes your lips all the while making them look naturally lovely...for selfies. Yep, if you've been wondering what glorious case Kim Kardashian has that lights up her selfies as if she was in a shoot - it's the Lumee. The whole front of the screen lights up with the click of the button...and it has definitely illuminated this Monday look! 

Heads up! If you haven't been the The Shopping Bag in awhile - I highly suggest you check out their new look! ...Not only that - but their new arrivals! Seriously, their new shoes (think pom poms) are to die for. Plus, their new bags and accessories give me a chuckle...and a twinkle to my eye! Here's something else that will make your heart sparkle - 20% off to The Shopping Bag! Just used code: SINSIDEMYCLOSET at checkout!

Now Is A Good Time To Work Out

Step Inside My Closet - Now Is A Good Time To Work Out - Emi Jay, Nike, RieMark, Sponsor, Victoria's Secret,
If I haven't given it away yet, I am a total health nut with a crazy obsession for working out. From pilates, yoga, strength training, running, cycling, to kickboxing, I love it all. The accomplishment, the sweat, the energy it gives you, the health benefits - I mean the list goes on and on! ...Which is why now is a good time to workout. It's the beginning of your 365 days, so why not make a change for the benefit of your health, mind, and body? 

A crucial aspect of working out for me is time. Especially during super hard cardio or high intensity interval training (HIIT) which is when my eyes are always on the clock...so why not look at something super pretty and motivating? 

RieMark specializes in making high quality watches with uniquely designed exclusive watch faces. From quotes, art, boho looks, and more - the straps to the faces are all so incredibly unique and will make you love to watch the clock. For the benefit of men and women, these watches will definitely stand the test of time with their stylish features, supreme quality, and extreme affordability. Speaking of affordability, you know what else RieMark offers? Free shipping! I've definitely got time for that...

With my workout outfit I am wearing the Now Is A Good Time watch in white. You know what else it's a good time for? Diving into the details of my new favorite workout outfit. This black and white sweat combo hails from Victoria's Secret new athletic line. I love that they started diving into making athletic wear - as this girl can never own enough (shoutout to Nike spandex shorts / capris!). This combo is so comfortable and I love that the top has so many elements to it. From the cut out to the back to the thumb holes in the sleeves, it's super breathable and super comfy!

For my shoes I'm sporting these pink Nike tennis shoes. As much as I love a head to toe black and white outfit, when working out I think it's important to have a pop of color. Bright colors bring a sense of happiness and motivation to your atmosphere - and for those who dislike working out, you might need a lot of it! 

So, this week finish the sentence: Now is a good time to...
