#stealamoment & Seriously Distracted

Note: This post was sponsored by fruitwater through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about fruitwater, all opinions are my own.

When I was invited to attend the Seriously Distracted launch party, I was seriously psyched for several reasons:

 1)   It was on a Monday, and I never go out on Mondays. What a treat!

2)   I was eager to learn more about the hilarious-sounding web series.

3)   The party was hosted by two brands I looove: POPSUGAR and fruitwater.

As expected, the party was a blast and featured the most delicious drink concoctions, each featuring a different fruitwater flavor.

You know, it’s funny. The idioms “seriously distracted” and “steal a moment” didn’t strike a cord with me at first. I love the title of the web series, and I love the concept of “stealing a moment” for yourself, but I didn’t think of either concept much beyond that.

Seriously Distracted is a show on POPSUGAR that focuses on the fun of stealing moments in pop culture. Tune in on Tuesdays to watch the show… and check out my fav ep below.

The day of the party, I had just returned from a really long day of travel. I felt sluggish and unorganized, but there was no way I was missing this party. At the last minute, I invited a girlfriend to join me. We grabbed drinks at the bar, sat down, and stole a moment from life to fill one another in on our lives the past few months.

My everyday life is really strange right now. It’s not that I’m “so busy” – I actually make a valiant effort to steer away from that phrase. There are a lot of different things going on between work, school, personal life, and now planning a wedding, and my schedule kind of changes week to week. Sometimes “me moments” can fall through the cracks. Taking yourself out of your element – physically and mentally – to steal a moment is incredibly powerful. It took me hauling my you-know-what all the way downtown and sitting at 1OAK at 8PM on a Monday night to realize this.

The icing on the cake was the fruitwater cocktails! I have to admit that I’d never tried mixing fruitwater with alcohol and it was a delightful discovery.

fruitwater is a naturally flavored sparkling water beverage that contains zero calories. For me, it’s the perfect little afternoon pick me up. I don’t know about you, but 3 or 4pm rolls around, I often begin to hanker for something sweet, but I’m not necessarily in the mood for something heavy or that requires chewing. And while some sort of coffee drink might sound good, I don’t do well with caffeine that late in the day, so I try to avoid it at all costs. I’m often running around during this time of the day, so it’s nice to have something that’s portable, satisfying, and isn’t a calorie (or sugar) bomb. Problem solved!

And yes, they make wonderful mixers, too!
