Juice Fast

Juice Fast

A juice fast is the most natural and organic detox diet, and it involves consuming only raw vegetable, fruit juice and water for a short period of time. It is considered one of the most rapid methods of detoxification, due to the reduced food intake and absence of solid food. A typical juice fast lasts one to five days, allowing your digestive system to recover from the demands of solid food digestion.

1Preparation for a Juice Fast

Although it can be tempting to jump into a juice fast, a 3 day preparation is essential because it affects how a person responds to the cleanse. Certain foods, such as coffee, sugar, meat, dairy,alcohol, and wheat are phased out to reduce headaches, cravings, and other withdrawal symptoms. It’s also important to up your intake of fresh vegetables during the pre-fast. A. Give Your Diet a Mini-Makeover by eliminating alcohol, sugar, dairy, wheat, artificial sweeteners, trans fats, and packaged, boxed, canned as well as fast food. B. Prevent Caffeine Withdrawal by gradually decreasing your caffeine intake. C. Drink more water.

3Breaking the Juice Fast

The day after the fast, eat mainly vegetables, either raw or lightly steamed, and fruit or nuts. Portion sizes should be small and the diet should be very similar to what you did to prepare – no sugar, coffee, wheat, gluten foods, processed foods or dairy. The next day, include more plant foods, such as beans,brown rice, or quinoa. Continue to add foods that you’d like to have in your regular diet. 3

23-day Juice Fast

During the actual fasting days, approximately 32 to 96 ounces of juice is suggested, with at least half of the juice being green vegetablebased. Green vegetables are rich in chlorophyll, which is said to help cleanse and heal the digestive tract. A. Almond or cashew “milk” B. Beet, carrot, apple juice C. Green vegetable juice
– Drink a glass of lukewarm water at room temperature upon rising and in-between each juice to promote elimination.
– To optimize the absorption of nutrients, drink each juice slowly rather than gulping it down. Juices should be consumed approximately one to two hours apart. The final beverage of the day should be at least three hours before bedtime.

Healthy. Eat. Live. Love

It is time to take out the bikinis and surfboards and head to the beach for a day of fun. Do you feel nervous at the idea of showing your body in the shining sun? You don’t have to! Here are some tips on how to detox and how to eat healthy to prep your slimming body for the crashing waves on the shore of your local beach.

The Lemon Detox Diet

The 10-day Master Cleanse operates on the principle that, for disease to be addressed, cleansing must be undertaken. Simplifying and correcting disorders through such a process is actually a way of correcting every disease. Observing a healthy diet, regular exercise as well as stress reduction is essential in maintaining the gains that the Master Cleanse Detox diet can offer.

How to do the Master Cleanse.

1. To create the mixture, mix the ingredients in the amount instructed and drink a minimum of at least six to twelve glasses of the concoction daily throughout the day. Drink the lemonade whenever hunger pangs strike.

2. A laxative must be taken in the morning and then in the evening. Be sure to observe at least three bowel movements in a day to ensure that the waste accumulated in the intestinal walls is totally removed.

3. Always drink the Master Cleanse lemonade fresh and do not subject it to microwave as doing so will minimize its effectiveness.

4. Breaking the Master Cleanse is just as critical as starting it. On day one coming off the fast, immediately after the end of the Master Cleanse, slowly introduce orange juice into the diet. Day two will see the introduction of vegetable soups and broths. Day three observe a diet of fruits and vegetables. Be careful not to overeat or eat too soon and drink plenty of water. Slowly ease yourself into a normal diet and avoid meat, fish, milk and eggs. Eat wisely!

Trini and her Mercedes

Star Factor

“People immediately recognize that you’ve made the right choice when you drive a Mercedes-Benz – it makes a beautiful, classy, powerful statement no matter where you take it.”

When it comes to a normal day, Trini is anything but average. Besides being a mother, wife and proud Key Biscayner she’s also a stylist at her studio on Key Biscayne, Artistic Director of her Trini Salon & Spa empire, Editor-in-Chief of Trini Secrets magazine and an Ambassador in the U.S. for L’Oréal Professionnel.

So how does she manage it all? Well, it helps that she’s got her Mercedes Benz SL550 Bi Turbo V8 right outside her door. But this isn’t the first Mercedes-Benz she’s owned. In fact, she’s been loyal to the brand for over a decade.

“One day I was driving my Mercedes-Benz convertible to a Photoshoot, I had the top down, the wind was blowing through my hair… I was looking like a star” she says. “Then all of a sudden, I notice 5 police cars behind me with their lights on.

I pulled over with confidence because I knew I hadn’t done anything wrong. I noticed the officers had big smiles on their faces as they approached my car – then they asked if i was Sharon Stone. We talked for a few moments and then they opened the road for me, and I felt like royalty with my surprise police escorts – it was a very nice moment.”

 

 

Spring/Summer 2014 Collection

DOUBLE B: BOB and BEACH

Discover the latest hairstyle trends, referenced by many runway creators and seen on many celebrities!

It is coming back on street podiums and is the must-have hair cut of the stars. This version has nothing to do with the square cut that stops at the ears and is cut straight. Now, flow is everything! There needs to be layering in a somewhat irregular way in order to allow the hair to move. This bob is a little longer than the square cut as it passes the jawbones and brushes the shoulders.

NOW, the only question is whether to wear it straight or messy, with bangs or without bangs?

TRINI: The French Beauty Expert

Q: Can you tell us about your mentor early in your career? Do you recommend a mentor for aspiring stylists? What was his/her best advise to you that you still apply to your work today?

A: There are two great names that have inspired me since the beginning of my career. The first, which does not even need an introduction, is Alexander de Paris; and the second, Bruno Pittini. I do not believe that in order to succeed in life one needs a mentor; instead, I believe that we need brands that leave their mark and visions of beauty, which will then permit inspiration and talent, take its own course. On my part, at the age of 4, I was already cutting the hair of my friends from school and my dolls – which would make some people, particularly parents, sometimes unhappy – knowing that this would be the career I would end up pursuing. Creation is a natural talent that cannot be learned, however, if through the means of the brand Trini, I can influence and inspire hairdressers, then that would be great because I believe that success should be shared.

Q: What is your favorite trend in hair styling? What is the most lasting and complimentary style on women?

A: Particularly speaking, I do not favor one trend over another. As soon as a client comes through my studio doors, I already know what I have to do to make them look their best. I think that the makeup touch is the most lasting and complimentary style for respectable women.

Q: Who is your favorite designer? Artist? Does the fashion industry and hair industry compliment and influence each other?

A: My taste varies with each season. But this year, my favorite designer is the purely classy Karl Lagerfeld. There is nothing to say or nothing to change because it is simply perfect. Fashion comes in a set (clothes, hair, makeup, accessories, etc.) and the creators come to us to get in on what is new and what is our vision of beauty. Do you see what happens in the press when a star changes her look? It is incomparable to when she changes dresses. The hairstyle is what people look out more than anything! A recent example is Beyoncé, who let herself be convinced to cut her hair short, which looks sublime on her! This change of look and other changes as such, I can think of at least 10 from the top of my head, are the only thing media talks about!

Q: What has been your best career achievement?

A: The best is yet to come. I took a big step 10 years ago by leaving Paris to come to Miami with my husband and 3 daughters creating the brand Trini in Private. The Beauty Universe is dominated by men and as a woman; I would like to create a renowned International brand based on the Excellence of Elegance. Who better than a woman to address women?

Trini

Q: You are known as a French beauty expert. Can you give our readers advise on living with French elegance and a chic lifestyle? (I would love to give readers 5 essential tips for French living– this could include decor, lifestyle, recipes, beauty, fashion tips)

A: It is for this reason that I have created Trini Secrets, the magazine of the group. Twice a year, I present across this magazine around 60 pages of the latest trends in hair and fashion. All while exploring exciting events, entertainment, celebrity news, popular personalities, dining, information on health and wellness, and even travel. This magazine is available in each of my salons and it is also available in digital form on my website: www.trinisalons.com. The best way to receive my daily tips is by following me on my Facebook page TriniArtist or on twitter @Trini.

Q: Is there a quote or motto that you live by?

A: For business it would be, “Client Experience and Excellence.” And personally, “Value has value, only if its value is valued.”

Q: Who have been your favorite or most notable clients?

A: It is the constant question journalists ask and other artists will say that they have worked on such and such people in order to show off and boost their egos; I do not believe in answering such questions. These “famous people” are just like you and me and  they do not merit more attention, knowing that they are famous, than any of my other clients that pass through my studio. In order to respect the privacy of my clients while playing the game with the journalists, I have decided to put forth my “famous person,” who is the most famous and well-known person in this whole world and who for generations, whatever the new tendency, does not change his look. My “famous person” is Santa Claus (You can check out Santa Claus’ visit at Trini Salon & Spa, here!). He has been my most loyal client for years and contrary to other “famous people” he never wants to change his look!

Q: How do you stay inspired to create beauty?

A: I have the chance of having the opportunities to travel worldwide and my inspiration comes from my walks through the streets of Paris, London, New York and Milan. Life in general is my source of inspiration.
