This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and DripDrop®, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #DrinkDripDrop #DripDropHydrates http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV
One of my new years resolutions is to drink more water. It seems so simple but it is easier said than done. I had the opportunity to review DripDrop, a new hydration drink, and it’s already making my resolution more fun! My biggest hurdle in drinking enough water is to remember to do it! I’m less likely to forget if it tastes good! I made some water bottle cozies to go along with it. They have a little pocket that is perfect for DripDrop packets, keys and other little things you may need when running or working out. It’s always fun and motivating to have a new workout/healthy living accessory…so I made it in three colors!
DripDrop is great for after workouts or for rehydrating sick kids, it hydrates 2-3x better than a sports drink because of the electrolytes! My daughter LOVED the flavor of Berry as much as I did, it’s really sweet! I got this in the baby aisle at CVS, use this $1 off coupon(while supplies last)(ends 2/21) to buy it !
These water bottle cozies are adjustable, you can use them on any size water bottle. They only take a fat quarter to make.
The idea is you can stash anything you need while running in the pocket and get moving! Sometimes I feel like I have my pockets and hands full of things while I run, so this will hopefully reduce that. Let’s make one!
