hydration-importance-with-faucet-face7 Reasons Water is Essential when It’s Cool out!

I don’t know about you, but as the weather cools down my desire to drink water slows down as well.  Though I know I need to drink it, that doesn’t seem to make much difference to my ever so tempting juices, teas and coffee.

  1. dehydration can accelerate hypothermia, frostbite or fatigue
  2. In cold weather, your body has to work harder to humidify the air you breathe and to warm it up, meaning that you need to drink more water
  3. people lose between one to two quarts of water a day via evaporation from the lungs.
  4. the elderly have proportionately less water in their bodies than the young, so staying well-watered is a big priority
  5. Sweat evaporates more quickly in cold, dry air so often we may not even realize we are sweating, therefore not think of the fact that we are needing more water!
  6. Even mild dehydration can cause tiredness, headaches, lack of concentration, reduced mental performance and dry skin!
  7. TheInstitute of Medicine (IOM) recommends men get roughly three liters of total beverage intake every day, and women get 2.2 liters, while others say there’s no need to force water consumption if you’re not thirsty.

How do I know if I’m dehydrated?

Symptoms of dehydration include the following:

  • Little or no urine, or urine that is darker than usual
  • Dry mouth
  • Sleepiness or fatigue
  • Extreme thirst
  • Headache
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness or lightheaded feeling
  • No tears when crying

Don’t wait until you notice symptoms of dehydration to take action. Actively prevent dehydration by drinking plenty of water.

faucet-faceNow, I don’t know about you but I have a water bottle that I just love (now I have a few) and for some reason that makes keeping myself hydrated a little easier.  I’m assuming it’s because I love it that I will keep it by me.  Not real certain the psychology behind that but I don’t want to break it down and lose the ‘magic’ of my water bottle getting me to consume more water.  It also helps by keeping me from buying sodas while I’m out because I always have it by my side.

As I mentioned before, I now have some new favorite water bottles.  Faucet Face has some adorably cute, great to drink out of bottles!  I’m extremely loyal to my current water bottles so I’ll admit that I procrastinated on trying them out.  Once I finally did I was hooked.  Now I’m having to fight myself not to have a couple full of water in all my favorite places to chill around the house!  Honestly, my only complaint would be that they are smaller than my normal 32 oz water bottle, the ones I have only hold 14.4 oz.

You can see from the picture that they have some adorable designs, but this is only a piece of them.  There are even more on the site!  Plus, you can order custom designs and I think that is even more awesome!  I’m definitely going to be ordering some custom bottles as gifts for Christmas and birthdays this year!

Loving Faucet Face!!!

Aside from my love of small businesses, there is one other thing that I am loving about the company.  The following is taken directly from their website:

Through its 1 for 100 program, Faucet Face donates 2.5% of ALL sales of hose water, tap is terrific and hummingbird feeder glass water bottles, PLUS, a complete filter for each sale of 5 or more individual bottles to the clean drinking water charity Third Millennium Awakening (TMA).

Classic Hardware: A New Vintage Jewelry

ClassicReviewWhen I came across Classic Hardware, I was immediately drawn in.  Though not all of it is ‘my style’, there was something about it that called to me.  Repeatedly I went back and browsed their selection, trying to figure out what drew me there.  Their site is designed very well, but it wasn’t just that.  I love the classic style and the vibe it gives off.

They have many pieces that I am fascinated by, that make me smile when I look at them.  Of course, with 17 amazing artists, there are bound to be all sorts of pieces that you’ll love too!  As a matter of fact, I went back to find the name of the designer for the pieces I received and got distracted.  I know I lost at LEAST a half hour checking out the new stuff and re-doing my wish list from their site.  LOL.

The owner of the company, and one of the designers, is Karyn Cantor.  Checking out her site and seeing the amazing artists she has gathered will give you a deeper appreciation for her artistic eye!

The artist who designed the above images is named Melissa Conteras.  She has some great animal pieces, and the proceeds to the particular collection I got go partially to conserve animal wildlife.  I thought that was really cool.  😀  Though we all know I love monkeys, the elephant in this design stands out to me for some reason.  She is beautiful, as are all the animals.  I also love the zebra, as for whatever reason it too seems to call my name.

Both of the above images are from the Endangered Species Collection.  If you have a love for animals, you’ll find lots of pieces you have to have!  Personally, I don’t buy animal skinned or anything that looks like it just because I don’t want to support even the idea that it’s okay, but the pieces in this collection let me show my love for animals without any implication or representation of harming animals.  I think that’s one of the reasons I love this particular collection so much!

The sponsor asked me to point out a site that they support, Born Free USA and I am putting them on my list to support now!  Don’t let the name fool ya, they support causes all over the world.  I’m particularly pleased that they have a section of Canadian Projects, among other things.  I have a very dear friend who is Canadian (as well as a great aunt that lives there now) and my friend has given me a love for her country through her shear passion for it!  😀  (You can check her out at Journeys of the Zoo)  Moving on though…  LOL.  Born Free USA supports some great ways you can help out wildlife, as we all know not all of society is remembering that these beautiful creatures are an invaluable source of so much goodness to the world!  Jump over and check them out, perhaps you’ll add them to your list as well!

Getting back to my review, there was really only one thing that I wasn’t quite pleased with.  The bracelet is an 8 inch bracelet but due to the design of the pendants, it fits wrists a little smaller than 8 inches.  I easily solved that problem with a trip to Hobby Lobby by purchasing a link to add onto the end.  It doesn’t take away from the design and now it fits comfortably.  Problem solved!
