Plenty o' teatoxes are circulating social media today, and all promise extreme results and a 'cleansed' body. The thing is, most teatoxes contain laxatives that yes, flush out the toxins - but also everything else. They completely rid your body of the good, the bad and the ugly leaving you weak, empty and malnourished.
I heard about Your Tea from Instagram and went-forth to research the product and the brand. The Teatox is a herb based formula that works to naturally aid your digestive system in cleansing and nourishing. The teatox comes in a 14 day package, or 28 day package. You drink the tea half an hour before or after three meals a day and it will assist with bloating, and even claims to clear skin and increase energy levels.
Because this is a laxative-free formula, it doesn't guarantee extreme weight loss by solely drinking the tea. The website advises to exercise and eat clean during the process of this teatox. I however, think you should just be eating healthy. I don't know how to eat clean, I don't know how the science behind foods and I wouldn't know how to get all my nutrients by eating clean. The formula I follow is simple - ditch the pizza, McDonald's and chocolate, and replace with greens, fruits and water.
While I've only been using the Teatox for a little while, I can already feel less bloated and feel myself a little more energised throughout the day. It is pricey, but if you're looking for a healthy way to detox, Your Tea is the best I've seen on the market.

It's no secret that the DSLR camera is becoming increasingly popular in the hands of humans all around the world. I'd saved up enough and finally bought myself my very first DSLR - entry level of course. However, I do feel like it's time for an upgrade and I don't want it collecting dust in the corner, but instead in the loving hands of someone who can use it to its full potential. So if you're at all interested, here are the logistics:
I've had it for a little over a year, but to be honest, the most it's stretched its use was my USA trip. 2 weeks of sporadic filming and capturing. I've still got all the bits and bobs - packaging and all. Technically it's second-hand, but really more like one-and-a-half hand..
I'm selling the Canon 550D body and lenses: 18-55mm kit lens / 55-250mm lens / wide angle & macro lens (which you basically just screw on to any of the other two lenses. Can create fisheye effect which is pretty much why I bought it.)
It is entry level, so if you're a beginner this could be really good for you to start learning the ropes of photography. It's simple to use and I feel is the best pick of the other entry-level cameras. In both aesthetics and you know, the photography stuff..

Knuckle rings and stacking rings have been a trend that I have loved for a very long time, yet I've never had a clue how to buy appropriate matching rings to look somewhat decent on me. Sometimes sets have the tacky picks, the rusty ring or the expensive price tag - however upon one of my many visits to H&M in NYC, I found the perfect set of stacking rings that suited me, and I felt comfortable flaunting. Simple, clean and a one-size-fits-all gem, it was a no-brainer in handing over the measly $5.95.
