Hello Everyone! I realize it has been almost 3 weeks since my last post! I have been busy preparing for school, studying for the DAT and enjoying what is left of my break. School starts this Tuesday and the anxiousness is beginning to set in. Especially when you don't want break to end yet you're so ready to be back in a routine. I have much to share with you in the upcoming posts to make up for my absence! Recently, my Best Friend Kacee has been helping me with my makeup. It sounds kind of silly but she comes to me for craft problems and I come to her for makeup problems haha! However, being on a budget, I would much rather spend my money at Hobby Lobby than at Ulta, Sephora or some other expensive beauty store. So I plan to share some tips and ideas with you regarding how to purchase quality products on a budget. With her help I will also share what colors work best, especially since she has red hair and pale skin and I have brown hair and olive skin. Be sure to look out for beauty tips regarding those and I will definitely be featuring some videos and suggesting YouTube videos to follow for more help! I will also be sharing two review/How to videos on the Baby Cakes Mini Cupcake Maker and the Baby Cakes Cake Pop Maker. I know, I know! I promised to review them right after Christmas but I only just bought the Cake Pop Maker after falling in love with the Cupcake Maker. No matter, I will definitely share both videos and share some techniques!
For this post, I will share another product I have from Christmas! I received a HydraCoach water bottle from my parents and I wanted to talk about that and do a small review. I have never really been a water drinker. Yes, I drank water when I would workout and every once in a while, but mostly I was a Diet Coke drinker. I wasn't addicted to Diet Coke but it was just what I preferred. I would say on average I would have two a day, maybe 3 or 4 if I needed the extra caffeine for school (otherwise I would drink coffee or tea). The main reason I drank Diet Coke was because I often felt drowsy or weak during school and it had no sugar so I didn't have to worry about it. I did start to experience headaches everyday at around 2 PM and after I emptied out our recycle trash of 5 various cardboard coke boxes I decided it was time to take a break. My HydraCoach was just the push I needed!! I started on December 27th and made a goal for myself. For optimum health, you are supposed to drink 8-8 oz glasses of water or if you count that out on your fingers, 64 OUNCES of water!!! Who drinks that much?!?! I certainly don't! So I made a goal for myself, 44 ounces. I'm not sure why 44 but it seemed like a good, fair number and I began to drink water everyday.
If you have never heard of the HydraCoach it looks like this...
These awesome bottles have a digital screen with 3 modes. You can program your goal (44 ounces) and then the date and hour. Based on this info, the bottle will register how much water you drink, per hour and in ounces. It also calculates the percent of your goal that you have reached.
These are my results!
