Results of the Bootea Teatox

Hey guys! So about a month ago now I started the Bootea Teatox, which is a two week detox - you can read about it here if you don't know about it already.

I was umming and ahhing about whether or not to even post my results with it, but I decided, eventually, that it may be helpful to other people if I do.

Whenever I've Googled about the results of the teatox, I've never seen anything particularly negative come up, so I was quite surprised at my reaction to it.

As a sufferer of anemia, I thought two weeks without meat might be a bit hard, but as I take multi-vitamins every day I thought I'd be okay. I was not. I ended up irritable and lethargic the entire time, therefore the raised energy levels I was meant to feel from the morning tea did not work.

The evening tea is meant to contain a laxative effect - I didn't get any of that luckily, but I think some of the ingredients of the morning tea contain diuretics, which I didn't know before I started. As a sufferer of chronic bladder infections, this messed up my body really badly, to the point that I had to stop taking the tea after the first week.

That being said, with the first week, I still managed to lose 3lbs, which is nice, I didn't experience any decrease in my appetite though which is a shame.

I'm sad I didn't get on with Bootea, but just because I had bad reactions to it doesn't mean you will, it just means if you suffer from anemia or bladder infections, perhaps you should stay away.

Have any of you done it, and if so, how was it for you?

Outfits of the Week

Hey guys! Today I thought I'd show you a few of the outfits I've been loving this past week.

I go for a very casual look 99.99% of the you can clearly tell. You know those girls whose hair is always perfectly smooth, and their clothes are always very straight and they're just put together very well? I am the opposite. I don't know why, I don't do it on purpose, I'm just very messy. I wear a lot of jeans, but I've recently picked up these striped trousers from Dorothy Perkins and I am obsessed with them. They are super comfy and go with most things in my wardrobe. The black midi skirt is a very new addition to my wardrobe. For years I presumed I couldn't wear midi skirts without looking frumpy, but I am pleasantly surprised with how these one fits on me!

Also, I know it's backwards, BUT HOW AMAZING IS THE HOGWARTS TEE? It's from eBay, I plan on doing a post on the top in the next week, I love it very much!

What's your favourite outfit?
