Himalayan Salt Detox

Salt & Surf: Following Up

I’ve been thinking about what a slacker I have been when it comes to blogging lately.  But I’m not slacking – I’m promise. It’s just one thing flows into the next, and life gets so busy! Life is good!

I wanted to follow up on a couple things I’ve posted on Twitter or Facebook, that people have asked me about.  I mentioned I was going to try this Himalayan Salt detox. I got it at the Salt Room in Summerlin. It was only 25 dollars, and I was reading about all the benefits.  I figured I would give it a try. A friend of mine wanted me to pick some up for him, so I bought a jar for myself too. You basically fill the jar with water, and you take a teaspoon every morning, before putting anything else in your body. It lasts several months.

I have done it religiously for about 2.5 months now. It is a detox, so keep that in mind. So – I’ll tell you the plus side and negative.

The only negative, I did have some break outs. The face breakouts weren’t severe at all, just here and there, in places I normally don’t break out. That was the toxins leaving my body. That was a downside, because cover up has been my friend lately!

The UP side. I’ve never felt better. I’m happier. In fact, there would be times when I was sitting at work, and I’d feel a ping of happiness. Not that I’m not happy there, but I can’t explain it, it would hit me at that time, I would feel it, and in my head I could almost hear it.  I feel good and I’m happy.”

I also have a more controlled appetite. I don’t snack as much as I used to or even want to snack. If I’m bored, I find something to do, instead of reach for the pita chips and hummus. I have also started to find more passion in things and I stay dedicated to them. For example, I’ve started cooking more, and prioritizing people and things in my life. I exercise regularly. I have always worked out, some times more than others, but now I find that I make time for it regularly, I want to do it, and I push other things aside for it.

Overall, this has been a great experience. It kick-started something inside me, that makes me feel a little bit different. I plan to keep it up.

Which brings me to my next thing. Surfset Las Vegas! My friend Melissa told me about a Living Social Deal for 8 classes at Surfset so I bought it and we started going. I love it. The classes they offer include Balance, Build, Blend, Beach Body and more. It’s done on a surf board that balances on air filled balls, that make it move slightly. Your lunges, leg lifts, sit ups, and arm work, is all done on the surf board. Since it moves slightly, you are always working your core. The classes are great! They are 45 minutes long and super fun.

The results have been amazing. I only go about 3 times a week, and it was just what I needed to tone up a bit and drop a pound or two. I signed up as a regular now! It’s located on West Flamingo near Durango. The instructors are fun and helpful.

If you are bored of your regular exercise routine, this may be something to throw in the mix!

It’s A Long List, But Worth It

Sometimes life gets so busy, I don’t even know where to begin. I have so much to write about, but there’s TOO much. I am super happy to be so busy. Honestly. It keeps me moving and inspired.

Las Vegas is a city that never stops. The weather has been amazing. I love talking on the radio. I have enjoyed some really wonderful events. I’m excited for some new Vegas shows to open. I’ve been freelancing for a TV company on the side. Life is good.

My down time consists of being home, concentrating on my health, getting spring and summer fashion and food ideas on Pinterest, or spending time with my close friends.

I’ve had some really great days with friends lately. We’ve had some long nights, long lunches, lots of laughs, and great conversation. I love them so much. Clearing space for the people that mean the most to you, is good for the soul. Being around small groups of people and having friends from all backgrounds makes me wiser. I still only open up to a few, but man, are we comfortable around each other. Never leave what you’ve started for one person. Trust me on this. Keep your friends. Not dozens of them. But the good ones. They will always be there. Through the years, you clean house a bit, and then there becomes this circle that feeds your life with happiness.

And as I always say, make sure to call the ones you love if they don’t live the same city. Call, don’t text.

Las Vegas never ceases to amaze me. I must say I’ve been doing some really fun and different things lately. Freedom allows me to experience so much more than I did before, and I kinda like it.

I attended the amazing ONE DROP Cirque event at The Mirage. The show was so inspiring and beautiful. John Legend was a bonus. The after party was a fantasy land. Vegas does it right, as always.

I freelanced for Bader TV for the Derek Jeter Invitational Gala. What an honor to interview one of baseball’s greats. And then to sit in a room full of the sports world’s most influential people, including Michael Jordan, and then, watch Ludacris and Miguel put on a private performance was truly amazing.

I checked out the opening weekend of the new Omnia Nightclub. Unreal. We celebrated one of my best friend’s 5 years at Caesars Palace, which included a Skybox, champagne, confetti, oh, and Justin Bieber down below. Such a gorgeous nightclub with the best looking staff I’ve ever seen.

I had a fun night out with friends at Andreas at Encore. We had an Absolute Elyx party. We learned how to make the perfect martini and ate delicious food. Andreas is one of the best restaurants in town, I absolutely love it. And my martini was, ummm, perfect. Family dinners are the best. Much thanks to Sabrina Chapman, who set it up!

I also attended another one of the Wynn’s best. XS Nightclub. This place is gorgeous inside and out. The pools, the bar, the cabanas! The weather that night was perfect. XS celebrated its 6th anniversary. Congrats!!!

Then, Vegas Magazine had its cover party at Four Season this week. On the cover, The Imagine Dragons. The Vegas boys are doing so well! They attended the party too. And my friend, John Kats wrote the story inside. Pretty cool. The party was great. I saw so many familiar faces. Catching up with everyone was fun fun fun. The food, the atmosphere, the drinks were all top notch. I do love the Four Seasons!! And Vegas Magazine too.

I also worked the Stellar Gospel Awards red carpet, and was able to see Beyonce with Destiny’s Child open the show! It was a surprise that I knew about, but it was on the down low. That was a lot of fun.

The radio show has been going great. “Carlos and Dayna” in the morning should be your “must listen to” radio show when you drive to work. Just saying. Really, it should. We are getting some great guests, having fun, and informing you all in one! In case you forgot, it’s 100.5 FM KXNT. :)

Carlos and I have hosted and attended a lot of fundraisers lately. We are having a blast. Carlos shaved his head for St. Baldrick’s Childhood Cancer – on a whim. We attempted the perfect Guinness pour for charity, and next week we will be speaking to a large group at Brooklyn Bowl, and hosting the Review Journal’s Silver Nugget Awards at Red Rock in mid April.

Get ready for May. Cinco De Mayo, Mayweather vs. Pacquiao, Rock In Rio Music Festival, Mariah Carey debuts at the Colosseum, and much more.

Are you exhausted or informed after reading this post? I can’t decide either.

Love ya. Xoxo
