Recently, I was sent two bottles of Resource natural spring water to sample and review. It's 100% sustainably sourced, contains natural electrolytes, has a clean fresh taste, and the bottle is made out of 50% recycled materials.
Resource is a division of Nestlé Waters North America. Although the fact that a cookie company is packaging "healthy water" kind of makes me skeptical, the fact that they include a five page quality report for Resource spring water in their website makes me think it's a legit product after all.
The packaging is basic and clean looking, and the bottle is easy to hold in an adult hand. My fiancé and I each taste-tested a bottle. I figured he would be a better judge since he only drinks water that's bottled or filtered (I'll drink it from the tap but I prefer adding Crystal Light).
We were both impressed by this water and we were amazed by how smooth it tastes. It doesn't have any underlying odors or aftertaste, which we haven't come across before. It's weird because it tasted even more pure than bottled or filtered water! But we both liked it. Although I prefer to use a reusable Nalgene and to use the Brita filter at home since its better for the environment, if I needed bottled water for some reason, I would definitely choose to buy Resource spring water.

My friend and I decided to have a fun girly afternoon in the "Couv." It was FANTASTIC! Just what I needed after a long, stressful week of NOT working out, crazy antics, cleaning the garage, and state testing.
First, we hit up Namaste Indian Cuisine for their $8.95 lunch buffet, and ate Indian food until our stomachs were going to explode. If you haven't eaten at Namaste, you need to. It is DELICIOUS.
Next, we went to TJ Maxx and Ross. MAN, I love these stores! There's always SOMETHING good. Check out today's finds:

Then we went to the mall to get some sunscreen. Small rant: My absolute Holy Grail sunscreen, Shiseido SPF 55+++ lotion, has been discontinued. WHY, Shiseido?! WHYYYYY?! The SPF 55 lotion mattified while having high SPF, and was just amazing! It was the only sunscreen that kept my incredibly oily skin looking decent, AND it didn't break me out. If that isn't a miracle, I don't know what is. Now my choices are SPF 55 cream, the SPF 38 lotion, or the SPF 60 lotion. And according to Makeupalley, none of them are close to what the SPF 55 lotion was. But I decided to give Shiseido a chance to redeem themselves, and I bought the SPF 38 lotion.
And then....we went winetasting! We went to a little local vineyard called English Estate Winery that specializes in boxed wine. They also have a delicious selection of dessert wines.
Tomorrow's agenda: another long run!
What's happening this weekend for you?
