On your list of healthy resolutions, staying hydrated should be up toward the top. You think drinking enough would be an easy daily goal to accomplish since there is no exercise or deprivation involved. Yet many of us go through the day in serious dehydration mode which leads to lethargy, brittle hair, dull skin, and weight gain (often thirst is mistaken for hunger). So why don’t we make staying hydrated more of a priority since it’s so simple? Because we forget. Forgetting was one of the main reasons I created my Count Me Healthy journal bracelets. Just slide a bead every time you finish a glass or bottle of water. They are beautiful reminders to drink up.
I am excited to tell you about another favorite accessory that merges style & heath as part of my New Year, New You series. I take mine everywhere and feel passionate that every woman should own (at least) one. They are called S’well bottles--beautifully crafted reusable bottles composed of non-leaching and non-toxic 18/8 stainless steel, that keep your drinks cold for 24 hours and hot for 12. Seriously. 24 hours of cool!
The sun could be beating down on your Swell Bottle and when you open it…there will still be ice. Plus, they come in a rainbow variety of colors and finishes making them showpieces that compliment whatever you are wearing. The old way of adding color was popping with a bright handbag, now it’s with a Violet Crush, Ocean Blue or Blanc Crocodile Swell bottle.
What makes these bottles even more special is a percentage of proceeds support charity partners focusing efforts on things like bringing clean water to the world’s poorest communities and protecting our forests.
The visionary behind the brand is Sarah Kauss, who launched S’well Bottle in 2010 with a mission to rid the world of plastic bottles. In the US alone, an estimated 50 billion plastic bottles are dumped in landfill sites each year, and over 200 billion globally.
I am in awe of Sarah’s business model and what she has accomplished in a few short years. I liken her to creator of Spanx, Sarah Blakely, in terms of being an innovator and business woman. Her bright bottles are available in 35 countries and she recently opened a flagship store in Palm Beach. Her branding is streamlined and clean.
