With temperatures rising, its important to keep cool and hydrated at all times. This week I share with you a recipe for a nice cool summer drink to keep you cool and hydrated. Because our bodies lose a lot of water in summer, it’s important to keep it your drink intake high. Dehydration is when we lose more water than we’re getting into our bodies which can lead to drowsiness, faintness and heat stoke.
White pants can be a great fashion statement, especially in the summer. However, finding the right underwear with your pants can be tricky.

Which is why it is important to remind ourselves to do these things. Not only to keep us looking good but also healthy.
