Only a day after being in NYC for Fashion Week my friend Lauren Fitzpatrick and I became deadly ill with a stomach flu and high fever’s that should only been witnessed on an episode of Grey’s Anatomy… You would think our “wellbeing” would be 100%, having the opportunity to work the Anna Francesca show and later getting into the Derek Lam’s… but instead we were definitely on our deathbeds. Seeing that the fashion was to die for I diagnosed our condition as “The Fashion Week Flu,” since both of us experienced major chills watching the models down the runway.

After a long day of fashion shows in NYC my friend Lauren I enjoyed walking around Chelsea, stopping into our favorite tea spot, Argo Tea, and making it down to our favorite place to eat…WHOLE FOODS! The Whole Foods in NYC is simply heaven. There are beautiful fresh flowers in the entrance, and the customer service is so helpful and has such positive energy (must be because they get to work in Whole Food DUH).

Time for a fashion detox? No worries, there are easy ways to boost your metabolism while giving your closet the fashion-boost it deserves this summer!

Squeeze into your bright colored summer skinny jeans by squeezing some citrus juice from oranges, limes, and lemons on your dish or in your drink. The citrus liquid can help your body flush out the toxins in your body; inspiring you to toss out the toxic dark shades in your closet.

Green tea has slightly less caffeine, yet just enough to give you the energy to get you through a busy day. Scientists have noticed that there are substantial benefits of green tea, both on preventing cancer and treating it. The antioxidants in green tea have cancer preventing properties, in particular breast cancer. The polyphenols keep your cells healthy so you can fight the destructive effects pollution has on the body. Asian cultures have used green tea for its healing properties for centuries not to mention their cancer rate is much lower than that of the Western world.

It’s true, fashion affects fitness. According to http://Medicinenet.com, experts say that it is important to do the right workout, but it is also important to wear the right clothes while working out. WebMd writer Carol Sorgen suggests that what you wear to the gym can keep you motivated and can improve your performance. “Putting on a flattering outfit motivates people to actually go to the gym or to exercise in public,” said performance coach Dr. Larina Kase in an interview with Sorgen.
