Summer Essentials



So we all know Birkenstock sandals became hugely popular back when our parents were growing up. It seems that once again fashion trends are circulating with people grabbing onto them with every ounce they have. I am one of those people. When I first saw this sandal craze begin over last summer I knew I had to jump on the bandwagon. Not only do I love how casual they are, but your feet will honestly be in a kind of heaven as soon as you slip a pair on. A la Comforte. We all want that right?

Not only are Birkenstock sandals grabbing everyones attention worldwide, but so is home-made flavoured water. Everywhere I look, it seems the nation is interested in becoming a much more healthier, comfortable, happier place and I truly love it. Everyone is offering advice on how too’s. So here’s mine…

No matter what you are doing, its important to keep hydrated. If you are anything like me, you’ll always have a bottle of water handy. Whilst it does the job, it’s not rare to crave something more satisfying whilst still keeping count on the sugar intake. So mix it up a little, get creative with all your kitchen side fruits… make something outstandingly refreshing and deliciously satisfying.

Fruits to try out – 

Lemon and Limes – Mint is optional

Stawberry and Kiwi – Mint is optional

Mixed Berries

Oranges and Lemons

Add water, ice and herbs to these as desired

Experiment! Let me know what your favourite flavours are!
