With all the holidays coming our way, I ‘m gearing up for a night of fun with our closest friends and family! To me, there’s nothing better than being around the dinner table exchanging stories, catching up on life and enjoying one another’s company around food and drinks!
Unfortunately for me, this means A LOT of sugar! As a mom, I try to make as many healthier choices as I can, but sometimes it’s hard to skip out on all those amazing holiday meals and desserts. This year I came up with a few fabulous beverage alternatives, thanks to SOMA! Not only are they delicious and healthy, but they are pretty to look at as well.
This year, SOMA will be adorning our table and adding a modern and stylish touch to my tabletop decor! I love it for so many reasons! Not only is it a fabulous product in itself – it’s sleek, easy to use and makes drinking filtered water look so delicious in a handcrafted glass carafe! They also support charity: water, an organization that is very dear to my heart! For every water filter purchased, someone will receive clean drinking water and that’s a BIG deal!
When I was taking graphic design in college, we were suppose to pick a non-profit organzition to promote and do all sorts of fun designing for. I picked charity: water because I believe it is so important to give back where we can, when we can. Water is so basic to give, but the starting point to a strong and healthier life on all levels. I think we take it for granted, which is why I am so thankful to SOMA for reminding me of the basics once again.
This year, I decided to introduce two fabulous beverages that are super pretty and a lot healthier too: Blackberry Basil water and Raspberry Blackberry Rosemary water! Simply add a small handful of the berries, a couple basil leaves or sprigs of rosemary, smash up with a spoon to get all those juices and flavors to mix and then add some fresh SOMA water! The longer it sits, the more flavors release. If you want you could make a batch a few hours before serving dinner. You can even dress it up and serve the waters with a fancy little stir stick!
I don’t know about you, but I’m seriously thinking about giving family a SOMA for Christmas! Without a doubt, it’s a company worth investing in! For $49, you are automatically enrolled in their fresh filter program, which sends a replacement filter to your home every two months! The cost is only $12.99 (less than $0.25/day) and shipping is always free! It doesn’t hurt that the filter is biodegradable (you can put the it right into your compost), but it also promotes health and wellness. Most importantly, it gives back to people who are not as fortunate as we are!
