Painless Water Intake + A Few Favorite Finds

Painless Water Intake and a Couple Favorite Finds

I love Coca-Cola! I used to have a Coke and peanut M&M’s for breakfast. I know, can you believe? I also used to pour Coke into a wine glass when the boys would go down for naps as a little pick me up. Anyway, I can’t drink Coke like I used to. For one thing, diabetes runs in my family, but it also makes my stomach bubble and all the unwanted effects that come with that, and it gives me lumps in my breast. NOOOOOOO!!!!!

About a year ago, I went to see a friend for some health stuff. She asked me how much water I drank, and I was comfortable enough to say, “Water? Oh, I don’t drink water.” That’s when she gave me a big ole sheet about the benefits of drinking water. It was obvious, my days of just drinking Coke were over. So we started buying La Croix by the cases! WAWAWA. I mean, they’re great and all, but I got sick of them. Then I happened upon the best drink ever. I mix a splash of lemonade with sparkling mineral water, and it’s amazing! I think there is something in the mineral water that goes really well with the lemonade and makes it taste so good!  And the best part? I drink a ton of it all throughout the day! I’m getting my water intake, and it’s painless! Another good thing? My boys and friends love it, too! It has become my signature drink! I sound so fancy, like the Barefoot Contessa or something! Ha! Oh, and just in case you are wondering, tequila taste pretty good in it, too. Look, I have a signature cocktail, too!

And here are a few favorite finds from my shopping excursions:
Ballgame Striped TeeTop- Stateside;  Sunglasses- Celine

Yes, I totally wear my sunglasses in the dressing room at all times. Just kidding. Hmmmm, I wonder if I could be onto something with this. Anyway, I digress. I love this t-shirt. In fact, I passed it up because I thought it was just a blue and white striped tee, and I didn’t need it. But I couldn’t stop thinking about it and how I could wear it with so much, so I went back and bought it. Look how cute it looks with black jeans. It would also be super cute with blue distressed jeans, like Diane Kruger is wearing in this pin. It would pretty much go with anything. I’m wearing an xs.

Top- Maeve

I have this thing for pretty white tops. I could probably start an entire blog based solely on pretty white tops! Maybe I’ll start a hashtag instead- #prettywhitetops ha! I They’re easy to love because they go with everything and are so feminine and fresh! I like to feel feminine and fresh. OMG, I am laughing. Anyway, I found this one, and I plan on wearing it a ton. I am wearing an xs.

Have you ever seen a cuter cream sweater? I mean, it’s not just a cream sweater, it’s a cream sweater with pom poms. I’m in. I’m wearing an xs.

    Seltzer water helped me curb my Dr Pepper addiction too! Something about those bubbles… When we lived in New York, there were lots of choices for flavored seltzer water. I guess it’s a northeast thing. But since we moved back to Texas recently, I have found my choices to be limited. And then I remembered the internet is amazing, and now I order my favorite seltzer online & it’s delivered to my doorstep. Right now, these are my favorite.https://www.boxed.com/product/2259/polar-100-natural-seltzer-12-x-1l-bottles-winter-variety/

    Can you see through the holes in the top shirt? Are you wearing anything under it?

      Yes, the top is see through. I am not wearing anything under the top in the picture. I will probably wear a skin colored or white camisole. I hope this helps.

    Love your tip about water. I have been a Coke drinker for 20 plus years-first thing I grabbed in the morning. But I kicked the habit about a year ago and went cold turkey to water. It has been a goal of mine to double my water intake and when I do, I feel infinitely better! Thanks for your honest and frank posts. I always look forward to the next one!

      I feel better and my skin looks better, too. DARNIT! I still miss Coke. I’m definitely going to try the other reader’s suggested seltzer water. We can do this!

    Your blog is fun, but prices on most of your finds are so High! More than I ever pay, but I imagine most of your followers are on the same page as you. Not trying to be negative, just throwing it out there.

    Hi Carly! Great blog! Love the refresh, too! Can I ask what you wore under the Maeve top? Wondering if I would feel overexposed? Thanks!

      Thank you for reading! I will probably wear a skin colored or white camisole under the Maeve top. I hope this helps.

    Did you order the glasses off of Amazon? I’m nervous to do that because of counterfeit goods. Just wondering if you have another source. Thanks! 🙂

      Hey Kristin, I purchased them from Nordstrom. I know they sell them at other department stores,too. Celine does not allow stores to sell their products online. Weird, huh? I hope this helps.

    We buy cases of glass bottled topochico over here! Put a fresh lime in it, stick it in a coozie and then it’s “fun water”. 😊
