Hi friends! Happy Friday! What’s going on this weekend? We’re heading off on a trip – check out IG stories for all the details over the next couple of weeks – but it will still be blog business as usual over here. I have a new beauty DIY post coming on Monday!
It’s time for the weekly Friday Faves party! This is where I share some of my fave finds from the week and around the web. I always love to hear about your faves, too, so please shout out something you’re loving in the comments section below.

Community Detox Coming July 10th
If you feel like you’re ready for a little reset, join us for a community detox starting on July 10th. This is my 4th time completing the detox and it’s something I do quarterly in my routine to help remove toxicities, restore deficiencies, improve my sleep, energy, and digestion. I always feel like a million bucks when it’s over!
SO many of you joined me last time, so I wanted to invite you to join in if you’d like to go for another round. The fun starts July 10, so you can order your kit now and you’ll be ready to go. (Use FITNESSISTA10)
Here’s more about this 7-day detox:
– It’s a liver-based detox to help reset your body, provide a break from digesting heavy foods, and potentially help your body eliminate toxins that we accumulate from our environment. It includes functional medicine ingredients and Ayurvedic herbs to support phase 1 and 2 liver detoxification.
– It’s nutrition-focused. It includes the POWERHOUSE Daily Nutritional Support powder (which I’ve had in my smoothies for many months and notice a difference in how I feel when I drink this smoothie), and meal guidelines for the remaining meals. The goal is to NOT have your body depleted of nutrients during the process.
– It can potentially help with weight loss along with anti-aging, and total body wellness.
– It’s only 7 days! When I first started working with a naturopath (back in the old days! It was like 2010), he had me do a month-long detox that was similar in format (but did not include the Ayurvedic supplements). It’s so much easier to do for 7 days, and I feel like my results were even better from the extra nutritional support. (The first two days are supplements and smoothies only – I typically add in some berries – and on day 3, you add in nutrient-dense meals using their meal guideline/template.)
It’s also very flexible; many people start the plan on day 3 (smoothie in the am, vegan lunch, Paleo dinner) and have excellent results.
Here’s some feedback from friends who have completed the detox:

Read, watch, listen:
Liv has ready The Diary of Anne Frank, so we watched A Little Light together on Disney+. It was heartbreaking, inspiring, heartwarming, and very well done. We only had to skip a couple of scenes, but I’m so glad we watched it together.
Check out this week’s podcast episode about being your own health advocate.
Just for kicks:
Fashion + beauty:
New Amazon set! I have this one in black (I accidentally threw it in the washer and it shrank…) and love it. They have so many colors and it fits so well. It also looks way more expensive than it is! Link is here.
Since I’m glasses-bound and eye makeup-free for at least another month or so, I’ve been doing a bolder lipstick. I picked up this one at Sephora when I was feeling pretty down and blah – I’ll post an update on the eye situation when I’m on the other side. Thankfully, they’re healthy and not infected but it’s been 3 weeks of redness and inflammation every day when I wake up – and it was a good little pick-me-up.
Fitness, health, + good eats:
Interesting studies coming out about taurine.
This is the best bug spay! I’m always sketched out by bug spray ingredients and this one from NOW has great ingredients and actually works. (You can use my code FITNESSISTA20 for 20% off.)
Happy Friday, friends!
