5 SMALL WAYS ON HOW TO START DRINKING WATER AND MAKE IT A HABIT

Hi Babes! Welcome to today's post, and happy Sunday.
Let me start by saying that if you were hoping this post will be one to list the benefits of drinking the good ol' H2O aka water to you, you will be disappointed. There are a lot of posts on the internet that breaks that down for you, I encourage you to search for them and read up.

This blog post however will serve as an inspiration,or guide to assist you drink water, or more water. Back in Uni, I learnt the benefits of water from a friend of mine after she shared one of her weight loss tips that became a healthy lifestyle change for her, water. I'd be sharing that in a future post.

Let's get down to today's post.

1. Buy a fancy/portable water bottle. Because of its portable nature, you can carry it anywhere and it can fit well into your bag. I prefer acrylic bottles to flasks because over time, there's this taste flasks gives to water that I don't like. But if you prefer flasks, by all means go ahead.



2. Set alarms with fancy tunes as reminders. Fancy tunes to encourage you because some tunes can be an outright addition to your mood if you're pissed off at the moment it goes on.



3. Post-It/Sticky Notes can be of help too. You can use these colorful stationery as reminders that you need a gulp.
For instance:
Have you had a gulp today?

Hungry or thirsty?

Have a drink Honey :)

H2O over there (with arrows pointing to your water)



4. Spice things up a bit if you find water too plain. You can actually infuse your favourite fruits/veggies into it to give it a kick in the taste department. I got to see this for the first time when I was in Law school. There are special portable acrylic bottles for this too. Shout out to my girl Fisayo who taught me how to make it.
These ones are infused in Masonic jars, and are a great option for parties and cocktails for people who'd rather go with good ol' water(if you're one indicate by commenting, let us know ourselves).


5. Be determined and Intentional about drinking more water. It's a lifestyle change that your body will thank you for. Remember not to make it a burden so that it doesn't seem like a chore. Stay safe and healthy Loves.

I hope this post is of help to you if you struggle with drinking water.

AN HONEST REVIEW OF ASWANI MARKET LAGOS- MY EXPERIENCE

Quote of the Day : S eek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all other things shall be added unto you. Hi, dolls! Welcome to today's post. How are you doing? Forgive me for the long time no post here on the blog I've been very busy in the non-virtual world. If you follow me on Instagram you would have noticed the hiatus there as well. It's been one thing or the other for your girl Lily of Nigeria , but our God is faithful to the pulling down of strongholds. Aswani is one of the most popular second-hand market (aka bend down select ) in Lagos. My curiosity about Aswani market began last year when someone talked about it in a passing small talk. It wasn’t the first time I had heard of the market. I grew up(for a while in FESTAC town) so I knew the market existed, but I had never been there. I made up my mind to go and see for myself. You know your girl is a curious-kitty with a heart that constantly longs for adventures. So, I discuss

SAVIOURS AGAINST DRY SKIN THIS HARMATTAN SEASON/COLD WEATHER | A SKINCARE POST

My mother's people have a saying that the best time to find out if a woman is truly beautiful is during the harmattan season,  because you'll get to see her real skin/true beauty.
