I kind of hate the term “busy,” but I’m not sure how else to describe this summer. Eventful? Jam-packed? Either way, I think you all get the picture! 

My life has been pretty different since I moved to Philly. Instead of sticking to my one home base, I’m actually bouncing back between NYC and DC pretty regularly for blog events (both cities are ridiculously easy for me to get to!), and not to mention, my travel partnerships have been ramping up here on the blog. I’m headed out for New Orleans today, have a few fun trips planned to a few spots in Virginia I haven’t explored yet, and I’m in talks with a few other states to nail down some collaborations.

Needless to say, I’m hardly home and I’m always on the go. Since it’s not only summer but I’m also traveling like crazy, your girl is doing her best to stay healthy. I can’t tell you how many AirBornes I take per week; I don’t have a spleen so its super easy for me to catch infections — and that’s the last thing I want to have when I have a ton of travels/work to get done!

One thing I’ve honestly been loving this summer? hint® water. I’m actually grabbing one for my Uber ride to the airport this morning, and frequently bring them on any trains/buses/planes I’m on. hint® water is naturally flavored and has no sugar or diet sweetners, so you get incredibly tasty flavored water without all of the junk! Sometimes I have a hard time just drinking straight up water but it’s so important to stay hydrated during the summer, so Hint does the trick! They even have a recurring subscription service just in case you’re a little too busy to make it to the store, which is currently my life!

  4. I love Hint! “Plain” water can be so boring sometimes so I like switching it up with flavor or fizz!

    I’ve really been trying to increase my water consumption this summer too, and I love Hint water! Having Hint water instead of plain, makes it so much easier to get in those eight glasses a day.
