Prepping & Packing For A Frip (Fun Trip!)

Prepping & Packing For A Frip (Fun Trip!)

This weekend I’m headed south to Austin for one of my best friends’ bachelorette party! This will also be one of the few times a year we get to see the beautiful bride because she now lives in New Zealand; she’s our little kiwi. Plus all of our best friends live in different US cities now too, so it’s extra special! Extra special = let’s party!

In the 80/20 lifestyle, this weekend will be the 20- late nights, tequila//wine, fun dinners and brunches. I want to share how I’ll try to bio-hack my way out of a hangover, drink organic, and nourish my body so I feel great all weekend. No one likes the sloth friend.

I also detailed a few clean beauty preps and how I’ll use my tricks through out the weekend.

Side note: I have to share Camille and Mark’s story because it’s so damn good about following your heart and taking a chance. Choosing love. We all went to Mexico for a girls trip and while laying out on the beach we started talking to a group of three guys by us (obviously cute and normal, not sketchy lol). And after several group tequila shots and Coronas we were long lost best friends and had the time of our lives all week. Fast forward a bit, Mark and Camille kept in touch and fell in love. Oh I should also mention Mark lives in New Zealand and the time difference is 17 hours! From the time they met in Mexico you could tell they were taken with each other. And after 8 months Camille threw caution to the wind and moved to Auckland! She left a hometown she was raised in, a successful job, her family, her friends and choose the love of her life! It doesn’t hurt that Mark is an attractive, tall man with an accent and his own company. 🙂 It’s so inspiring that she just went for it! It’s stories like these that remind us to just bet it all on love. Put all your chips on that one person. What’s the worst that could happen? That chapter ends and you start a new one? A reminder to choose love over fear.

I’ll start with what I’m packing and my beauty prep then I’ll go into how I plan on using it all.

Packing

  • My daily supplements: Daily Cleanse by Hum, Rhodiola rosea, Hum’s Uber Energy, Hum’s Wing Man, Hum’s Hair Sweet Hair
  • Glow by Beauty Chef for pro and prebiotics
  • Protein powder: can use at breakfast or snack + bring shaker, helps fight cravings//over eating
  • Protein bars for breakfast if needed or in the car as a snack
  • NAC capsules- it prevents the conversion of alcohol to aldehyde and aldehyde is the primary cause of hangovers// 1 before your first drink, 1 after drinking, 1 in the morning
  • Charcoal capsules- 1 per drink at the end of the night
  • Clean electrolyte packets for water + 4 SmartWaters, one for each morning and night
  • Runa or Bullet Proof coffee- a clean energy drink to pick up the pace after a late night
  • Chlorophyll dropper- liver detoxing, improves digestion, good for skin
  • Selenite wand to sleep and to ground
  • Organic alcohol- drink better, feel better
  • Facial cups- cup away the bloat and swelling
  • Offer and bring a homemade dip/dessert/Siete tortilla chips/Simple Mills gluten-free crackers

Prepping

  1. Working out: As a cult-like follower of Kelly LeVeque//Be Well by Kelly, I’m trying to follow her advice to do lengthening workouts closer to the trip, like yoga and Pilates
  2. Activated charcoal teeth brushing for a big picture taking weekend
  3. Organic spray tan
  4. Non-toxic eye gels from Honest Hazel
  5. Tinkle- if ya know ya know

My Master Plan

Friday:

  1. Wake up and have big nutritious smoothie with a lot of greens and healthy fats and fiber
  2. Water and hydrating veggies for the car ride
  3. Water + electrolytes + 1 NAC
  4. Happy Hour cocktail// organic tequila, Topo Chico, lime juice, fresh grapefruit juice topper
  5. Eat, drink, party!
  6. 1 NAC + charcoal pills + water

Saturday:

  1. Water + electrolytes + 1 NAC
  2. Take normal supplements
  3. Protein shake or protein bar for breakfast
  4. Cup face- push away all the bloat and puffiness
  5. Runa or Bullet Proof coffee for energy
  6. Boat time baby! Bring organic tequila and maybe an organic wine. I’m not really feeling beer lately, but if I did, I do go gluten free or Michelob Ultra
  7. Mexican themed dinner catered in! (Their wedding is in Cabo!) Here is where you can bring out anything you were able to make and bring from home. A good dip, a refined sugar free dessert, grain free/corn free tortilla chips, Paleo crackers!
  8. Partyyy!
  9. 1 NAC + charcoal pills + water

Sunday:

Repeat Saturday morning!

My mantra is have all the fun, you can detox it away next week + be prepared and you’ll feel your best all weekend long!

Have fun!

xx, Kalain

 

 

 

My First and Not Last Colonic

My First and Not Last Colonic

So, we’re getting a little personal.

Why are we talking colonics? I recently became interested in gut health, digestive health, and how clean our bodies are on the inside. I wanted the toxins out and this was my first project. The colon cleanse has been used throughout history to improve the body’s natural detoxification processes, restore digestive health and improve someone’s overall quality of life. A well functioning colon is so important for your mind and body. I didn’t realize, until some research, that the colon plays a part in hormonal balance, appetite control, sleep and mental processing.

How I Got Here

I had started following Nicole Berrie of Bonberi and she is a wealth of all things wellness from food combining to colonics. She lead my curiosity to Gil Jacobs who is the expert (apparently he’s given himself 1000 colonics!). His philosophies and teachings led me to the world of colonics.

Bad food sticks in the body. Pollution and drugs stick in your liver. As we collect over time, our effectiveness, our fabulousness, our looks, and our niceness all get detracted by the retention of all this matter.

Gil Jacobs, Well + Good

I also read that colonics have helped with skin conditions and food cravings, so I was an easy sell. I’ll circle back to the food cravings at the end because it definitely helped me. Continue reading “My First and Not Last Colonic”

Power to the Supplements

Power to the Supplements

Instead of spring cleaning I’m a big fan of new year cleaning. So, this January I reorganized our entire kitchen area; the pantry, the refrigerator, cabinets, drawers, all sponsored by my trips to The Container Store. And this year I added a supplement cabinet! The shelf right above the wine and champagne glasses.

Supplements to me are the easiest good thing you can do for your body. Throw them in a smoothie, thrown them in a breakfast parfait, thrown them in some night time tea, just throw them back, what have you! For the most part you can pick however is most convenient. And convenience is key.

Welcome to Dallas Wellness Diary!

Ahh I was/am so nervous to share this! I’m beyond thrilled you made it this far. I hate to use the word blog and so in the beginning I referred to this idea as a passion project. Still not sure which is worse. Toward the end of 2017 I started getting really into learning all about wellness//spirituality//holistic living. I started reading the books and listening to the podcasts and I was hooked; my Amazon account took a big hit. But it was the first time I really wanted to study something.
