Day One: “Don’t torture yourself.” — Connie Britton
I’ve adopted a more “V from the block” look to establish my vampire street cred. I think it’s going well. What’s making things more interesting is the fact that today is the company meeting. As in, one of R29’s famous company meetings. We have them every few months, and they’re always themed and full of over-the-top food and entertainment. As I sit here sipping on my first juice, "Morning Ritual," a polka band is parading around the office playing "99 Red Balloons." I’m not kidding.
I was totally game going into this, but I admit that I found the process of cleansing difficult. Though a colleague had warned me that I may have trouble concentrating, I thankfully didn't experience this. In fact, the entire cleanse was really about keeping my eye on the prize. I'm happy I can now say that I've tried it, but I don't think I would do it again. Alas, even after consuming (the majority) of my 15 blood-hued juices, I will never be as radiant as
