Don’t start it when you have friends visiting, a cocktail party to attend, or – in my case – a food issue of a magazine to produce.

(Seriously, avoid restaurants at all costs.)Read more about 4 lessons I Learned From my Juice Cleanse
“For exploring the beautiful streets of Prague, I’ll wear something comfortable, but true to my minimal aesthetic: a Tibi slip dress, Givenchy jacket over my shoulders, Balenciaga sandals and a Marni crossbody bag.”
