hydrate

I consider myself quite of a camel. I drink huge amount of water for several reasons. One : keeps the cough away. Two : prevents me from over eating (I drink 2 glasses before a big meal and it ALWAYS works). Three : keeps my skin glowing. Anyway, you might be thinking what does water have to do with fashion? well, you can see in this post's photos that water adds a nice effect for photography work. but water isn't only good for visuals, it's also good for YOU.

It amazes me how little water people consume these days. About 41.6% of teens are suffering from light dehydration. When I'm out with my friends, they eat as much as a 5-year-old. But, they fill themselves up with sugar-loaded sodas and 600 calorie Starbucks beverages. Strange enough, they tell me that they're on diet. "Drinking" calorie is the worst. It's so much better to eat 600 calories (hey ! You can eat 1/2 roasted chicken with several side dishes and still some space for Frozen Yogurt with that amount of calorie). So if you're thinking on skipping the meal, don't. Plus, sugary drinks do not (read : do not) can't replace water. they may be liquid, but they're more like you eating multiple spoons of sugar (yuck right..)

If you feel that you're skinny enough, it doesn't mean that you should stop drinking water. A human body is 55% - 78% made of water (if you haven't notice, blood is watery and blood is everywhere around your body). That percentage doesn't stay that way if you don't keep drinking. 8 glasses a day should do you good. If you're afraid of going back and forth to the bathroom too much, then drink at night when you reach home. I have one giant jug for me to finish every night.

What's my message here? DRINK MORE WATER ! it's cheap, free of calories and it does wonders for you :)

Ice Pandora said...

Second that ;) x

Liz said...

drinking a lot is good. my tip is to eat while drinking as it fills you up faster so u eat less. and sugary stuff are so evil. starbucks is evil. fruits and vegies are the best <3

Zarna said...

i'm totally with you! i drink water all day long - i always make sure to drink ATLEAST 8 glasses a day!

nina oliva said...

=) Love that post! Reminds me that I'm thirsty right now... But you're so right. Drinking water is essential and a good basis to be healthy. And if I fancy something a bit more tasteful I usually go with low cal/low sugar drinks such as tea or vitamin waters...

tanvii.com said...

Nice photos, i want to make a photoshoot like this ( hopefully ) :)
Thanks for ur comment in my blog ..

GANDA said...

agree with you,
I drink 3 bottle of water early in the morning when I wake up and do that as well when I am going to bed.

way to slim down and make you feel fresh! ;-)

anyway, drinking cold water actually burn your calories! but its not really suggested to drink cold water all the time as its not really good for health!

crazy pig said...

When I was little, I used to hate how water tastes (or more likely I hated that it wasn't sweet), but now, I finally got used to it!
Great post :)

Marla Singer said...

whoaaa incredibly hot pictures!
and i love the post <3

Isabel said...

its hard to drink the recommended amount but i always carry a bottle or reusable take-out style cup so that its always there. then i am more likely to drink.

Leia said...

I definitely don't drink enough water! I don't have sugary/calorie filled drinks either, I just don't drink very much of anything. So thanks for the reminder... and this photography effect is very cool!

great shots. i try to drink lots of water too- it really helps better than coffee when you're tired- at least on me, coffee makes me shake and feel dizzy - but water wakens me up.

John B. Marine said...

This is why I follow this blog- your beautiful pictures and witty commentary. I don't know what it's like in Jakarta, but I commonly drink more water especially when weather gets brutally hot down here in southeast Texas. I'm no Starbucks junkie (though I'm always up for a double chocolate chip mocha frappuccino :D). Your images are amazing here in this post.

Valencia Lia said...

Such a meaningful post and it's so true!! People now don't consume as much water as they should. That would include me as well:((

That's why my skin has breakouts of dryness.

Anyhow, loving the pictures taken! Looks so professional like a model<3 <3

Ceciliaefendy said...

Hmm i don't really know abt it. I bought it on olshop. But someone had told me that it's a fake..there's no model like that.

I adore the water effect in these photos! Very alluring. I also agree with drinking more water. It's so good for the body and skin. It truly amazes me when people forget how many calories sugared drinks and yes.. alcohol contain (cocktails are the worst).

I'm addicted to room temperature water. In my purse you can always find a bottle of water.

Love the photos.

Marie said...

I completely agree on the drinking calories thing - I only allow myself one sugary beverage a week!

One of my major resolutions this year was to drink more water - - such wise words of advice! And these pictures are fabulous, would love to know how you shot them! :)

great photos - sexy!

Angga said...

I use to be so addicted to coffee, any type of coffee, especially ones with tons of creamer in it. then you can see your skin gradually get lines and wrinkles, that's when I know that water intake is the most important thing, I stop drinking coffee since 5 years ago, I do drink in occasion but not that addicted. I can see my skin improve a lot better, especially when you drink at least 8 glass a day. Great topic!!!
oh back to photos, I really love this water effect!! you always have brilliant ideas on photography!! really talented

Fashion Cappuccino said...

So true Michelle! You just made me get up and drink a glass of water! I rarely drink any soda and your comparison is so true (it's like eating sugar!). Water is so beautiful to photograph and I can imagine it can be kind of hard too. I love these photos of you! xoxoxoo

Nice photos ;)
I love this post, I'm totally agree with you that drinking water is important lately because the unpredictable weather, sometimes I feel really hot but suddenly the rain coming so i think drink a lot water will make a good balance for our body and keep us being active besides it's good for our skin, I just proved it by myself ;)

ailovesamore said...

sexy and gorgeous shots :D

and that was a good information , water is really really important for our body , no matter what :D

I couldn't agree more Michelle, drinking water is the most essential thing....I always bring a bottle of water with me in going to school and every time I have my classes I drink and fill it up every hour hahahah my student would ask me why? I always tell them, it is because the hot weather in Thailand and I sweat a lot...I talk so I become thirsty....all the reason why I consume more water these days....

YES!!! YES YES YES!!! to water...I don't mind going to the bathroom...I feel like it cleanses my entire body and immune system...

Yeah water is one way to prevent coughs! When I start to cough, my mom always lecture me for not drinking water~ Just drinking water is a great way rather than eating medicine!

Riumni | Rainbows Scapes♥ said...

Sometimes I forgot to drink after have a meal :p couldn't imagine that it will get us a serious problem. Dehydration is dangerous. So now I'm drinking much water for my health :) its also a good trick for diet! Thanks for such great post kak Michelle. You also look sexy on those pictures. The water effect looks natural. Can u teach us the tutorial? Does it use photoshop?

Amen to what you´ve just said. As for me, I prefer drinking a lot of fresh fruit juices than having my daily creamy coffee fix at Starbucks.

Tiffany said...

your photos are so awesome, and I agree with you about drink a water, I'll drink more everyday :)

Noelle Chantal said...

I totally agree with you! But you know what, I can't finish 8 glasses of water everyday. It's weird I know, but I'm more of a juice/shake fruit person. hehe

Again, I love ze photos!!! Great concept as always :)

Jane Reggievia said...

geez this is a great concept, chel!
the first one is soooo lovely!
did you work it all with Mr. Tripod? cool!
about water, yeah I agree with you. We must drink more water and drink 2 glasses of it before meal it really works, I've heard it from a doctor.
well, stay healthy then, haha! (:

have a great day!
