Spring Detox {You’re Invited}

Remember that you plant the seeds for abundant beauty with every small change you make. The seeds that you plant this spring will sprout and bloom vibrantly in the seasons ahead.—Jolene Hart

This month we’re exploring style and beauty in Year of Tranquility—a fun and very full topic! Of course this includes inner *and* outer beauty, so Saturday, March 10 through Friday, March 16 we’re doing a 7-day detox together and I wanted to invite YOU to join us in the adventure.

Tomorrow night at 8pm ET I’m offering a FREE detox kick off call to discuss the process and provide tips based on my previous detox experiences that include the 7-day Detox Diaries, a podcast about it, and a blog post on when I successfully completed my last one. Woo-hoo!
