Weekly Recap and How To Drink More Water

Hello peeps,

My weekly (more like 2 weekly now) recap video is up and this week I’m giving you my number one tip on how you can drink more water this summer.

Here’s some more info about some of the stuff I talked about in the video.

1. Breakfast with Bill Granger

I’m big fan of breakfast and I’m big fan of Bill too so it was just plain awesome to be invited to the Rise & Dine exclusive breakfast event at the Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney to celebrate the importance of taking time out for breakfast. Oh yeah! People always do dinner events, why is that? Maybe we need to do more breakfast event…

2. Mindful Dinner Series, Mind Food – Collaborative Consumption

A pretty cool event with some great speaker and of course, great food (all vegan too!).

I didn’t know anything about this ‘sharing economy’ until a few weeks ago. You can read all about it in my previous post here.

 3. Perth Trip

Yes I was in Perth last week for 4 days and I had a great time. I did a half day 3 day juice cleanse.  It was pretty awesome having 3 days worth of juice delivered to the hotel. Probably had the healthiest bar fridge in the entire hotel. I stayed at Duxton Hotel. Pretty cool. Convenient location. Clean. No bed bugs (very important) = happy me.

I went for a job one morning along King’s Park. It was very scenic. I also had my first Uber experience while I was there. If you don’t know what Uber is; it’s an app for taxi/ride sharing service. Very very cool! You can check out their website here.

How To Drink More Water

Now this is a big one especially now that we’re approaching the hot summer time!

Since I tend to forget to drink water, this is my way of making myself to want to drink. And that is by adding flavour to water; infusing it with fresh herb, fruit and vegetable.

To start you can go as simple as my 2 ingredient Vitamin Infused water recipe which you can make at home now.

Then if you want to go fancy, you certainly can! Add some berries and lemon. Boom!

I highly recommend using sparkling water as it just makes it that much more refreshing. I make my own soda water using my Soda Stream (check out the unboxing and product review post here) – it’s more cost effective and it’s a good way to make sure that there’s only water (and CO2) in my sparkling water. Free from nasties and artificial flavourings. You’d be surprised what they add to sparkling water. Check the label next time you get a bottle.

I know how some of you might want to make your own soda water and own your very own soda drink maker so like I said in the video I will try to make it happen for you guys.

And…. *drumroll*

GIVEAWAY is confirmed! I will have not one, but two of latest model of Soda Stream (Soda Stream Play) to give away. It is valued at $99 so it’s  so make sure your on my VIP List so you don’t miss out on this giveaway!

Now, a very important question. Do you like watching video more or do you like reading posts more or are you indifferent? Let me know so I can write/shoot more stuff that you like! 

Mindful Dinner Series, Mind Food – Collaborative Consumption

Up to a few weeks ago I was unaware of this term what Collaborative Consumption actually means.

Collaborative consumption is a new economic model that has been named by TIME as one of the “10 Ideas That Will Change the World”. Collaborative consumption is all about utilising what is already existing, shifting from this notion of ownership to access. The advancement of technologies has enable us to do more with less by sharing, swapping, and lending products from local to global scale.

It was a pretty cool and an informative event. We had guest speakers from AirbnbOoobyCar Next Door to Open Shed, talking about how collaborative consumption is transforming the way we live and consume product, saving us money and reducing waste to the environment.

Did you know that the average power drill is used for somewhere between six and twenty minutes in its entire lifetime? Why buy when you can borrow?

Halloween. The second highest grossing commercial holiday after Christmas. What should I say, some people are for it, others are against it. As for me, my last Halloween dress up party was years ago so no spooky costume for me this year. I’m not really into gory stuff so the whole spooky halloween theme doesn’t…
