This weekend was full of summer fever and heat. The only concentrating I could do was mapping out my route to the nearest beach or pool to soak up that summer feeling that I love so dearly. So after finishing a tiny bit of work on Sunday, I dashed over to my inspiring friend Dana Schmalenberg of GEM + REMEDY'S house where we floated in her pool for the better part of four hours. Then she insist that I try her latest cold tonic recipe.
WORDS. CAN'T. DESCRIBE.
One sip of this had me buzzing as if I had done a line of something far less medicinal! All while tasting like the most INCREDIBLE chocolate cold summer shake. This powerhouse pumps up your happiness, hydrates you from the inside-out, boosts your immunity, delivers copious minerals, beyond energizing, endocrine nourishing, delivers probiotics to your gut, and is incredibly anti-aging (not to mention an aphrodisiac). I felt supercharged after drinking it amongst her stunning crystal and gemstone collection. NEWEST OBSESSION!!!!!
