I can't believe it's February 2012!! Where does time go? I was supposed to start my detox last month but I guess I didn't think of it until this month. Haha. 

This particular year, the year of the dragon, is the year I have been waiting for. Many expect this year to bring interesting and life-altering changes, and I'm quite excited after having a very stressful and challenging year. I really did not like it one bit!! Anyway, before I go off on a tangent, I'm so ready to get rid of the old and anything that has weighed me down in the past. I'm ready to work with a clean slate, and to paint it with beautiful and vibrant colors. However, before I officially start this year, there are few items I need to take care of. 

To begin, I will need to detox/cleanse my body by doing the following:

-Drink more water (I will need to add lemon or cucumber to make it more appealing). 
-Take vitamins (Omega-3 Fish Oil, Vitamin D3, and Luminous & Brilliance vitamins)
-Drink Metamucil to help with digestion (I know, I sound like an old lady).
-Detox every 6 months (with Magnesium Citrate).
-Exercise 3 times a week. 
-Eat better (more veggies and fruit; eat less meat).

Aside from all the things I want to do to rid my body of toxins, I want to finish some products I've had for the past year that I did not like, but stored instead. I want to focus on natural and organic products that aren't so harsh on the skin and hair. Once I follow and stick to a healthy regimen, I know I will feel 10x's better. 

Pile of products I so desperately want to 
throw away but don't want to waste:
-Nivea Express Hydration (too sticky)
-Issey Miyake Eau de Toilette Spray (smells OLD)
-Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil Deodorant 
(not "extremely" effective)
-Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner 
(replacing it w/ Eminence Ston Crop Toner)
-Aceite 3 Olive, Almond, Castor Oil
(already have Almond Oil, Castor Oil, 
and Rose Water to replace it)
-Cargo OneBase Concealer+Foundation 
-Stila Kajal Eye Liner
-L'Oreal Le Kohl Pencil (not dark enough)
-Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara (Discontinued)
-Jane Iredale Lash Conditioner (old and I didn't like it)
-CoverGirl LashBlast Length Mascara (I've used better mascaras)
-CoverGirl Outlast Lip Stains (ehh...)

-End result after using some of the products listed above. 
(Yes, I know....I need a good camera that won't make me look orange!)
