When It Heats Up Try This Simple Zero Calorie Drink

There is usually just one small step from ordinary to elegant. I know that sounds optimistic, but sometimes just a little change makes ALL the difference.
For example, if someone puts a jar of fresh flowers on a plastic table - ordinary to elegant in one step! Or puts a ribbon on a chair, or brushes her hair (oh wait, that's me :)
Water is pretty ordinary. It is necessary for us to maintain life, but we prefer to drink stuff that has flavors. An entire beverage industry makes money off of the ordinariness of water.
Now, add slices of cucumber and orange to a pitcher of water. It is so incredibly simple, but it changes water into something elegant. Like Herbal Water (and much cheaper), the water gets infused with these lovely flavors.
The first time I experienced this orange cucumber water was at a spa. After you sat in the steam room, there was a table with pitchers of cold water with these slices in it. It was so refreshing! and, I felt so pampered.
Why it took me 4 years to attempt this on my own is a mystery. But, it is worth it. Get out your chopping board and make some YUMMY water.
