Caliwater: My New Favorite Way to Hydrate

Tuesday, July 28, 2015


Since coconut water became popular I've tried to force myself to like it several times, but the truth is I actually gag while I'm drinking it. I hate it. So when I heard about Caliwater (cactus water with prickly pear extract) I was skeptical. After all, I love coconut everything but hate coconut water. I wasn't banking on the fact that I like prickly pear juice to like this product. So, I was so pleasantly surprised when I took my first sip. It's delicious! It's light, fruity, and exotic tasting. To be honest, it had a sort of blue raspberry/cotton candy taste to me. It's been my favorite way to give my hydration and replenishment a boost this summer.

The prickly pear cactus fruit is the only fruit which contains all 24 known betalains, powerful antioxidants known for their skin revitalizing benefits. This helps hydrate and revive your skin naturally. Cactus water has 5 naturally occurring electrolytes, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It's low in sugar and calories and has no added colors or preservatives. So not only does it taste good, but it's good for you. It reduces inflammation, detoxifies your body, and potentially prevents premature signs of aging.

If you can't find it in a store near you (check the store locator on their website here), you can order it off Amazon here.

Have you ever tried cactus water?

What I'm Wearing: 

Dress: Sail to Sable Sandals: Palm Beach Sandals c/o Bracelet: Loren Hope

As you have probably realized by now, I am a huge fan of Sail to Sable. The designs are so classic and effortless. Whenever I'm not sure what to wear, I reach for one of their dresses and it's always a hit. I can't tell you the amount of people that have stopped me and asked where I got the dress because they loved it. It's definitely a summer staple in my wardrobe. I would highly recommend investing in at least one of their pieces. I promise you will find yourself wearing it all the time.

Local Stops: Greenwich Polo Club

Tuesday, July 14, 2015


If you've never been to a polo match, you're missing out. Even if you have no idea how the sport is played, I promise you will have a great time. The game itself is both elegant and fiercely powerful. However, everyone knows that the match itself is only half the fun. In addition to the match, it is a social event with great food and drinks. The women get dressed up in pretty summer dresses and hats, the men are dressed like dapper gentlemen in summer suits, sports-coats, and blazers. Even the dogs take part and get dressed up. I drove down on Sunday for the Butler Handicap. It was a bit hot and humid but absolutely perfect in the shade with a little breeze. There was wine tastings and food trucks, car test drives and raffles. They even have an official "After Party" hosted by the JHouse every Sunday after the awards ceremony. I couldn't make it this time because I had the dog with me but I'm hoping to drop in next time and check it out. 

You can see the schedule and purchase tickets for the rest of the polo season on the Greenwich Polo Club website here

Enter to win your own pair below! Please note, that when you get them they may be a little snug. This is so over time they will mold to your feet for a custom comfortable fit. They are real leather so they will stretch. I used toe socks and a hair dryer to speed up the process a bit.
