H2O 🌊hydration is essential for our healthy lifestyles above anything else that our 🚹body🚺 consumes. We especially crave it during this 🌅summer🌞 💥heat!

I call this 🌠Star🌌 Water (after my mother‘s first name ~ Estrella ~ which means “star”) that calls for: 💧Water💦 Fresh slices of the following: cucumber * lemon🍋 * ginger🍈 * mint leaves 🌿 (no honey🍯 added ~ but it’s optional for sweetness [I prefer none to savor the tangy taste])

My mom, the retired Registered Nurse😷 after almost 4-1/2 decades, has been mixing up this cool concoction that offers a wealth💸 of physical health benefits, including ingredients in her cold medicine💊 when I lost my voice last spring🍀 & my hangover solutions + another from Lisa my LMT‘s post-massage💆🏻 🍹cocktail🍸

Sunday☀️ 📳Selfie: Aside from adding the cucumber to her latest batch of ✨Star💫 Water, I asked my Nanay to save me a couple of slices to place over my eyes👀 & felt their calming soothing effects! Now, as a 🎥photographer, I’m a pro behind the 📹camera + in front of the 📷cam, taking 📲selfies📱 even with my eyes😆 covered and closed!

Cheers to Mami Aya‘s refreshing herb water that helps ease digestion + boosts our vitamin🍊 intake!

After my cabin fever from our snow days and before I escaped the snow to South Texas, Lisa gave me another much-needed massage!

And since we both had stayed safely at our own homes drinking, she added lemon to detoxify to her Virgin Mojito!
