Green Smoothies for Happier Skin

I’ll be totally honest, I know that I don’t get a proper amount of fruit and veg everyday. I try, but it’s still not quite enough. After talking juices fairly extensively with Jaclyn, I knew it was just a matter of time before I too jumped on the green juice bandwagon.   

Confession: I signed up to The Knot to keep track of my wedding planning with their premade checklists. But then I promptly deleted the “body routine” and “beauty routine” sections. I’m not planning a new fitness/diet regime  for my wedding, nor am I scheduling any spray tans/teeth whitening sessions for the beauty “goals”. I just want to look like I do now, but that someone who knows how to do hair and makeup took care of my head for once. 

The only thing I am going to try to do is keep my skin healthy in the meantime by staying hydrated and eating *slightly* better.

This post was in conjunction with The Body Shop’s release of their new Virgin Mojito range which promotes all things green and #HappySkin. I tested their new range, which is released in stores this week and it smells glorious.
