Vital Proteins for Collagen Production

Anyone else notice a drastic difference in your skin when you started getting close to age 30? My whole body seemed to change within a month of my birthday. A lot of people would say that it was all in my head, but I felt like I went through a second round of puberty or something.  My metabolism changed, I needed even more sleep, my recovery time from working out increased, and my hair and skin became so dry. I kind of had a mini meltdown!

Hello! Solution! Collagen! Do any of you really understand what it is or what is does? I am not going to pretend I totally understood what it was either, so I’ll give you a quick little rundown. Collagen is a form of protein, which is built out of amino acids. These are linked into what we call peptides, and these peptides are essential for collagen production in your body. Collagen is the basic building block of skin, hair, nails, bones and joints. Collagen also makes up about  70% of our skin, so you can see where I am going with this…

Wanderlust + Juice Organic Juice

If you guys follow me on snapchat (@krdavis33) you probably saw me talking about the juice cleanse I did with Just Organic Juice last week! If not, then you missed out and you should follow me. Haha! Jk! But honestly, I loved it! I felt so much better afterwards. Today I am giving away a one day cleanse on my instagram! (@kristinrosedavis) So make sure you enter!

Now I just wanted to talk to you a little bit more about the cleanse that I did. I did the Hard Boot 3-day cleanse. It’s their signature and most popular cleanse. The “Hard Boot” Cleanse will flood your body with live enzymes, vitamins and minerals, give your body the digestive rest to clean house, and help you shed those extra pounds.

Here are what the juices in this one are:

  • (1) Green Envy: Red Apples, Spinach, Celery, Parsley, Ginger, Dandelion, Cucumber, and Pear
  • (2) Greatfruit-n-Mint: Mint and Grapefruit
  • (3) Roots: Lemon, Celery, Dandelion, Beets, and Carrots
  • (4) Clorofeelgood: Spinach, Romaine, Parsley, Kale, and Green Apples
  • (5) Just Beet It: Lemon, Ginger, Beets, and Carrots
  • (6) Almondelight: Vanilla Bean, Dates, Filtered Water, and Raw Almonds

I LOVED the Grapefruit one and the Almond. I was craving it by the end of the day. I struggled a little bit with the Beet ones, but they are actually not too bad since they have Lemon and Ginger mixed in.

Let me know if you guys have more questions!

Saturday is Better

I know that today is not exactly Saturday, but I wish it was, and I wish I was back at my staycation at The Grand America. Their rooms are adorable and the people are so nice! They brought me the yummiest cake from their bakery, La Bonne Vie, decorated for my blog and came to check on me to make sure my stay was going well. Plus this bed was the most comfortable thing ever! Pillow fights for life!

Macaroons at La Bonne Vie!

A few weeks ago I got to stay at The Grand America overnight to get a little taste of all the amazing things their hotel has to offer. (More posts to come on that!) Their sweet shop, La Bonne Vie, is seriously the cutest (and tastiest) thing you have ever seen! I mean how cute is this? I want to live here. If you’re in Salt Lake City, obviously I would recommend staying at The Grand America, but you have to at least stop here for some gelato, macarons, or one of their other amazing treats! The pastries are freshly made daily by their own pastry chef! Also, their cakes are soooo adorable! They made me a cake and sent it to my room, decorated for my blog and it was to die for. (I’ll post photos later!)

(P.S. scroll below to see a few pictures of their toy store too…you will die!)

Introducing EVEN STEVENS (and a giveaway!!!)

We’re not shy of a little pun every once in a while. Especially when said pun conjures images of cruising down Ocean Drive in a white Testarossa, one hand on the steering wheel, one on the toasted baguette of a loaded Cubano. The ham runs thicker than the bubbling Swiss on this total babe of a sandwich. Roasted pork, sliced ham, Swiss and pickle spears.

For every sandwich sold, Even Stevens Sandwiches donates a sandwich to a local non-profit. Check out evenstevens.com for more information about our food, cause and locations.

Scroll below for details on an awesome giveaway!!!!
