Strawberry Mint Infused Water

Fruit-infused water is my jammmmm. I’ve posted about it before, so it is no secret how much I love a little fruit + herb action in my h2o! It is extremely versatile and makes hitting your daily water goal very easy. My favorite combo is strawberry + mint, and sometimes I’lll add lime to that too. I like to use frozen fruit so it acts as ice cubes for my drink, and plus I feel like it infuses quicker than regular fruit. I’ll add strawberries and mint leaves to a big container of water and stick it in the fridge before I leave for the gym or to walk Kemba. When I get back I have an ultra refreshing drink that is perfect for this 80 degree weather we’re having right now.

Try this ratio next time and let me know what you think!
1 cup frozen strawberries + 1 large handful mint leaves + 24oz water

In other news, Justin and I are still getting used to this whole pilot-job thing ;) He’s gone A LOT which is really hard, but it will unfortunately get even worse before it gets better. I am so proud of him though and I love how happy flying makes him. He’s one of the lucky ones that has found a career he’s passionate about AND talented in. As for me, I’ve been busy working, studying, and taking some classes. Never in my wildest dreams did I think this is where life would take me, but I am excited for what is to come and to see where I end up next! (I know this is incredibly vague, but I will share details soon for those who care to know more ;) )

When I was younger, I lived to decorate and redecorate my room. Pottery Barn Teen magazine was my lifeline; I would scour the pages of it for inspiration and occasionally convince my parents that I needed this new comforter/lamp/furniture/etc.  It was important that my room reflected me and my personality, and it also needed to be functional enough to showcase my favorite belongings. I was a weird kid, but we already knew that ;)

Now I’m lucky if I have a minute to even think about my apartment decor, let alone actually do the decorating! In the back of my mind, I can’t justify spending a ton of time on furnishings when I know we will just be moving cities again soon. Justin and I cannot wait to know where we will end up for good so we can buy a house and settle down, but until we are able to put roots down….we will be living in apartments and moving cities/states pretty often.

So basically I have no motivation to decorate and I’m blaming it on this haha. I’ve had some family in town visiting and I have more friends coming later this month, so I know I need to get a move on it! This coffee table is the only area I’ve styled, and it pretty much only happened because I drank a triple espresso from Starbucks on my way to Crate & Barrel.

 

Do you have any home decor tips? Where do you pull inspiration from? HELP!
