Slay Summer: Hydrating Drinks for the Busy Boss Babe

Summer is here, boss girl! The sun is shining, the days are longer, and you're likely juggling a million things – crushing it at work, rocking your social life, and maybe even squeezing in a vacation or two. But amidst the hustle, staying hydrated is key.  Dehydration can zap your energy, dull your skin, and leave you feeling less than your fabulous self.

So ditch the sugary sodas and ditch the dull water routine. This summer, we're all about elevated hydration – refreshing drinks that not only quench your thirst but also support your health and well-being. Because a boss babe deserves to feel good, inside and out.


Get Glowing with Fruit-Infused Water


Water is the ultimate beauty elixir, but let's face it, plain water can get a little boring.  Spice it up with fresh fruits! Here are some stunning flavor combinations to get you started:


  • Citrus Glow:  Lemon, cucumber, and mint – a classic for a reason. This combo is light, refreshing, and packed with Vitamin C for a radiant complexion.

  • Berrylicious Beauty:  Strawberries, blueberries, and a squeeze of lime.  This antioxidant powerhouse fights free radicals and keeps your skin looking younger for longer.

  • Tropical Paradise:  Pineapple, mango, and a sprig of rosemary.  These tropical fruits are bursting with flavor and vitamin A, promoting healthy skin and hair growth.


Fruity Tips:  Slice fruits thinly for maximum flavor infusion. Let your water sit for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld. Get creative! Experiment with different fruit combinations and adjust the amount to your taste preference.


Pro Tip: Invest in a stylish reusable water bottle! It's good for the environment and makes staying hydrated a chic accessory.


Sparkling Simplicity with Flavored Seltzer

Love the fizz? Seltzer water is a fantastic low-calorie alternative to sugary sodas. But plain seltzer can be a little too...well, plain. Here's how to elevate your seltzer game:


  • Herbal Oasis:  Grab some fresh mint, basil, or rosemary, muddle them slightly in your glass, and top with seltzer. This adds a subtle herbal flavor and a touch of sophistication.

  • Fruity Fizz:  Muddle a few berries or citrus slices in your glass, then top with seltzer. This is a fun and customizable way to add a touch of sweetness without the sugar crash.

  • Spicy Sensation: Feeling adventurous?  Muddle a few slices of jalapeño with a squeeze of lime in your glass, then top with seltzer. This is a surprisingly refreshing drink with a little kick!

Seltzer Tips:  Experiment with different flavored seltzers for a variety of options. Add a splash of 100% fruit juice for a touch of natural sweetness.

Hydration with a Kick: Coffee & Tea on the Go

We all know coffee and tea can be delicious ways to start your day. But they can also be dehydrating. Here's how to enjoy your favorite caffeinated beverages while staying hydrated:


  • Iced Coffee Cooler: Brew a strong pot of coffee, let it cool, then pour it over ice. You can add a splash of unsweetened almond milk or a sprinkle of cinnamon for extra flavor.

  • Tea-riffic Time:  Brew your favorite iced tea and add slices of lemon, cucumber, or berries for a refreshing twist.  Green tea is a fantastic option for its health benefits.

Coffee & Tea Tips:  Always pair your coffee or tea with a glass of water to prevent dehydration. Opt for herbal teas like chamomile or lavender in the afternoon to promote relaxation.
