{Partnered Post} Skinny Teatox

Skinny-Teatox-Logo Daydream-In-Color-Skinny-Teatox-14-Day-Program Warm weather is here! With that comes the dreaded swimsuit season. Every year I make resolutions I can’t keep the second I lay my eyes on ice cream. When I heard about Skinny Teatox, I realized it’d be the perfect new thing to try this year. I opted for the 14-day program (currently on sale!). I also got the adorable strawberry tea infuser, which was perfect for the teaspoon of loose leaf tea serving. Daydream-In-Color-Skinny-Teatox-Cup The program is simple. A serving of the skinny teatox tea a day and the evening detox weight loss tea every other night. The included information pamphlet talks about making sure to eat well and exercise while on the program. A and I just started our pushup program to reach 100 nonstop pushups, so it worked out great. The warm weather has also made it easier to make nice healthy salads for lunch and dinner. Daydream-In-Color-Skinny-Teatox-Tea-Leaves The first thing I noticed was how good the day time tea smelled. A little bit of citrus and floral notes. We just started having a lot of overtime days at work and a cup of the tea in the morning was just the thing to perk me up in the early mornings. I also felt like my tummy was flatter. Daydream-In-Color-Skinny-Teatox-Evening-Tea The evening tea tastes good and clears you up by morning. I love the way they make me feel overall. Less “puffy” and more energy. Give it a whirl and let me know how it works out for you!

Thank you for tuning in. Posts like these help provide our other colorful posts. Thanks to Skinny Teatox for giving me a chance to check out their lovely product.

They are so perfect in your girl’s favorite colors for Valentine’s Day or just for no reason at all. You can even create a custom gift. The color combos are endless and they have all sorts of fun flavors to choose from. The coated almonds are crunchy and delicious. The chocolate dragees are a shiny shell filled with chocolate. The little meringues are magical indeed! They crunch and then yield a soft creamy texture as it melts on your tongue. Everything is packaged with care so they’d also be the perfect wedding favor!

I’ve been so obsessed with flower arranging and caught garden fever hard this year since it was my first spring with a backyard. So I’m imagining these overly elaborate parties filled with good food and fresh flowers like Florist Sean Cook’s party spread. These DIY rose ice cubes would definitely be in the mix with a signature cocktail. These DIY seed tapes would be the perfect parting gift for all the guests!
