Daily Greens by Shauna Martin

Daily Greens 4-Day Cleanse: 
Jump Start Your Health, Reset Your Energy, and Look and Feel Better than Ever! By Shauna Martin

Are you craving junk foods? Feel sluggish and tired all the time? Fueling yourself on caffeine and sugar on a daily basis? Then it's time reset your mind and body with the < font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 19px;">Daily Greens 4-Day Cleanse.

Jump start your body and give yourself a "spring cleaning" during the week so you're refreshed and looking amazing for the weekend. The book features four key cleanses: one for each season of the year (Spring, Summer, Fall, and New Year). The vegetables and fruits in each cleanse are selected to coincide with fresh, delicious seasonal produce so that you can juice right in your own home. Try the 4-day cleanse or if it's right for your lifestyle, try the 7- or 10-day cleanse.

The best part? You don't have to eliminate food on the Daily Greens cleanse. Founder Shauna Martin recommends a raw diet while you juice, so you're not just limited to just liquid, and you'll still be able to refresh, rejuvenate, and reset as you would with other cleanses. So you get the same benefits of a cleanse without starving yourself! No more cleanse headaches or irritability, and you'll feel the results almost instantly.

You can make these yummy green recipes right in your own kitchen, anytime you want. Daily Greens juices contain easy to follow recipes that include up to 6 pounds of raw produce cold-pressed into each bottle. Each juice is the equivalent of 9 servings of fresh vegetables and fruits. They are naturally low-calorie because less than 10% fruit is used so you don't spike sugar levels. No water, sugar, or preservatives are added. The juices are naturally vegan, naturally gluten-free, naturally dairy- and soy-free, non-GMO project certified, and absolutely delicious.

So if you're ready to reset your body, lose weight, or just give yourself a much-needed energy boost, the Daily Greens 4-Day Cleanse has exactly what you need. With a foreword from Mayim Bialik, star of The Big Bang Theory.


When I've requested this book, I was not really looking into cleansing my body or losing weight. 
As a vegetarian, I'm always curious about new association of vegetables and fruits to diversify my meals.

This book is full of great seasonal recipes, easy to cook and gorgeous pictures! I think the photos are selling you the book way better than my review! Lol! 

Honestly, I've tried the morning juice like the orange-carrot juice with greens. You add spinach, carrot, cucumber and pineapple. Delicious and tasty ! 
The summer quinoa is super yummy too. It's the first one that catch my eyes as I love quinoa. :-)

They are also a lot of explanations. The author is sharing a bit of herself through the tips and recipes. How she comes up with the dishes ideas and why it's good for your health. 

Really a great book to enjoy your vegetables and fruits whatever the reasons you have to go green.

Good cookbook!

The Little Vanilla Book: Creating Self Love and Stiletto Swagger by Lux Alani

Lace up your corset and embrace your stiletto swagger with this unblushing guide to personal growth using the virtues of (gasp!) S&M. 

Offering mighty insights on everything from whipping negativity into submission to breaking the bondage of bad self-body image, The Little Vanilla Book gives you the tools you need to awaken the heroine deep inside and open your life to a scintillating new world of self discovery. 

Within the pages of this loving and bawdy exploration of all things you, former dominatrix Lux Alani uses her personal experiences and research to uncover the surprising truth that some of the primary lessons and practices found in the world of kink aren't just for the kinksters with the right mindset they're for you too. 

But wait! If you're nervous that you'll need to buy a paddle and latex catsuit to get your transformation on, don't worry! This isn't about getting into the kink scene or practicing BDSM. Looking at five key aspects of every woman's life: authenticity, confidence, body image, resilience, and fear, The Little Vanilla Book is truly about taking a unique journey to self-love and empowerment one that shows you how to unchain your courage, reclaim your awesome self, and live your truth with gusto. 


Curiosity about the tittle and the content have led me to request this book. Exactly what I needed!
It's fun, interesting and the author really talks to all women!

A great way to stop, think of your behavior and of the way you mistreat yourself even when you don't do it on purpose. This book is showing you how to correct your habits of putting ourself down by thinking you are not with it.

Of course, we are all unique and wonderful! But that's a thing to say it and another to believe it deep down.
The fact that the author shares a bit of her own history and explains how she has become a goddess, a domme and also a woman who is able to accept her vulnerability, her feminity and embrace it without fears or culpability, was very inspiring.

Also full of easy tips or exercises to follow or to try. No drastic changes or magical spells, just how to do baby steps in stilletos! ;-)

I've really enjoyed reading this book. Probably because Lux Alani is writing as if she was having a cup of coffee with you or a fun girls night out. It's full of humor, easy to read and you have the feeling you are not alone. She will catch you up and never laugh at you. She doesn't judge, she is showing you another path that can lead to a better acceptation of yourself as a woman.

As for the BDSM part, it should not scare you away. Maybe it will help you to understand that different doesn't mean bad and that we have always something to learn from others. And accepting limits, settling boundaries for ourself, accepting that life can hurt and doing a parallel with the BDSM way of life was really interesting.

A book I warmly recommend for all the women who have trouble to believe they are worth loving, or those who hide behind walls or fears.

It's just a book but words sometimes can show up at the perfect time to give you the push to change something in your life.

Great read!

"Here's the manifesto for becoming your own heroine - the liberation from your unworthiness."

"We draw to us what we need to learn, and life gives us endless lessons - sometimes gently, sometimes by dropping a piano onto our heads - that we get to choose, thanks to our level of attention and openness."

"I was wounded, and I'm scarred. That's okay. Scars are beautiful and make people compelling. Scars remind you of your humanity. Mostly, scars are proof that there is healing."

"There's only one you, so let your freak flag fly! The people who accept your flaws and beauty now will be those you'll have history with later."

Porter Marshall has nearly achieved his goal of becoming a Club Sin Master, but his new sub poses a much bigger challenge than he anticipated. Despite their mutual attraction and red-hot dungeon sessions, Kenzie Hart plays her own games. Her bratty, you-can’t-break-me attitude masks terrible personal hurt—pain that only the exquisite touch of a skilled Dom can release. But when Porter suggests taking their connection to the outside world, Kenzie denies him . . . which only makes him want her more. 

Kenzie can’t ignore the raw, fierce bond she has with Porter. But she can’t give in to his dangerous demands, either. Is the passion they share real, or is he using her to solidify his status at Club Sin? And yet, who else can she trust with the shattering secrets she holds within? As Porter expertly brings her to the point of no return, Kenzie surrenders her body—and, piece by piece, her heart. 

I like Stacey Kennedy writing skills. Her stories are intense in the emotions and always let you want more when it's over.

She always has complex character that hide something interesting.
In this case, I've followed Kenzie adventure and immediately love her fun bratty attitude. Was not a fan of Porter until he has shown more concern about Kenzie being more than just a subject he wanted to learn more about as a Dom.

This new volume of the Club Sin serie hasn't disappointed me. It was a sexy, fun read because of Kenzie as well as something more touching and bitter sweet as she decided to strip herself from her walls.
Great series!
