from kidney stones to cute glass water bottles

A couple of months ago I ended up in the emergency room with extreme pain and 2 kidney stones. The most likely cause being dehydration. With 2 kids, breastfeeding and lack of sleep, I was not drinking enough water. It's no excuse, but it's what happened. As much as we are told how important it is to drink water, we forget, or at least I did. It's not just a fad, it's super important, not just to make our skin look better, but to maintain our health. So my recipe for today is very simple:

water

directions: pour it in a glass or cute bottle, sip often, bring it with you
optional: add lemon or cucumber slices

To help make water drinking more desirable, I searched for a cute, eco-friendly water bottle, and discovered an awesome company called bkr run by 2 women who hold the same ideals as me.

Tal Winter and Kate Cutler

Tal Winter and Kate Cutler were two intelligent, fashionable, cultured women in love with everything glowing and glamorous—but realized they were drinking from trash: cheap, disposable, plastic water bottles. Not glamorous. Instead, they wanted to drink from something clean, clear, soft and beautiful that felt like a couture accessory and not camping equipment. A product to be loved, not tossed away—a product they believed they could design. So they quit their jobs, said yes to the adventure, and recreated their lives. Four years later bkr has gained a dedicated following, earning its reputation as a coveted beauty essential and the solution to staying hydrated. Each season bkr releases limited edition collections inspired by runway trends in New York, London, Paris and Milan. Always BPA-free, phthalate-free, adorable and addictive. Welcome to your newest obsession.

I wanted to support this company, and make water drinking attractive for others, so I decided to sell them at our yoga studio. For every bottle sold, we will donate $2 to an awesome foundation that is located across the street from us, and who's hardworking employees practice at Luna; the Make a Wish Foundation "granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy".
