Love Wins + Weird Trendy Juice Bars


It's been pretty eventful around the country since last Friday. Working for an agency that revolves around social media only helped magnify the reaction--the office was buzzing.

The excitement even called for canceling all healthy lunch plans because:

"We are celebrating marriage quality! We are NOT getting potatoes, we are getting burgers and french fries because life is good." -- overheard at VM.

The PRIDE Festival was also happening over the weekend in NYC. #lovewins

I also was conveniently sick just in time for the weekend. Naturally, I found this as good of a time as any to try out any weird remedies that juice bars have come up with (because I need to get the full trendy-juice-bar experience before I head back to Tampa).

rehab shot

Attempt one: Rehab Shot from Juice Press. This had ginger, lemon, and cayenne. I felt like I was literally burning from the inside out. I think I had third degree burns in the inside of my body. Did my sore throat go away? Yes. Was I chugging an iced coffee immediately after? Absolutely.

le detox

Attempt two: Le Detox from Juice Generation. This had french green clay and cucumber water. I honestly don't know if it did anything, and I don't know how I feel about ingesting clay, but it tasted really good and didn't burn me internally.

I'm the kind of person who is sick for an entire week without fail. I'm on day four and feeling pretty great so maybe these weird juice shots (and my trusty cold medicine) actually helped. Who knows! Hopefully I don't have to experiment again.

Have you tried any weird juice remedies?


  1. wow, those look awesome! (besides the whole burning internally part) haha! xx, kenz

  2. They were pretty good! I've had lemonade with cayenne before, but this one was just so hot!
