I'm sure you luvvs noticed Katie's beautiful mermaid hair and Darcy's one piece bathing suit guide; furthermore, I hope that means  you've noticed it's BEACH MONTHHHHH. So you get a month full of us helping you get ready for sunshine, saltwater, and glistening (not just sweating) in that summer heat. I'm doing my part this week by making sure that first and foremost, you are ready to stay hydrated this summer.

If any of you have experienced a Southern summer, you know it's not for the faint of heart. Water is a necessity. It's a necessity for beating the heat AND for staying healthy. I'm sure you all know at this point how much research there is to say how important water is not just for our body, but also for our skin. I'm sure you also know that sometimes water is not the most exciting drink of choice, which is why some of us probably don't drink as much as we should. I am so, so guilty of not drinking enough water. To change that, I put together three flavor combinations of infused water that keeps you coming back for more.

DIRECTIONS

For all of the following, you can either use a pitcher, a nice glass, or a water bottle. Feel free to dump as little or as much of the ingredients as you want for the infusion.

RASPBERRY, STRAWBERRY, MINT WATER

Julienne your mint to make it easier to drink. You don't want to overdo the mint. It's very powerful! For this sized cup, I did one chopped strawberry, three mint leaves, and three raspberries.strawberries, raspberries, mint, rosemary, orange, lemon, infused waters, flavored water, water, summertime, beach necessities, summer
