On Staying Hydrated with bkr®! | Review

‘Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink’

One of the things most people, and especially bloggers, do in the New Year is to make resolutions.  One of the most popular resolutions seems to be to drink more water!  Apparently a lot of people, like my mother, don’t drink enough water.  You are supposed to drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day.  Most people don’t even drink two.  This is not good.  Fortunately I don’t have this problem.  If anything, I drink way too much water.  My problem instead, is finding a suitable bottle to not only drink the water from and accurately keep track of my water intake, but to carry it around with me during my busy day.  This is where my new bkr® 500 ml water bottles come in.

Here is the deal!  500 ml is the equivalent of 16.907 ounces.  This means that one of these bottles is the equivalent of just over two of those required eight 8-ounce glasses of water that should be consumed on a daily basis.  So to meet that quota, you would need to refill one of these bkr® 500 ml bottles at least 4 times over the course of the day.  Well, I am averaging about 9 of these bottles of water a day, and that doesn’t include the bottle I usually drink during the night.

So why do I like these bkr® bottles so much?  Well they are simple glass bottles with a silicone sleeve that comes in a variety of colours, with new limited edition covers released each season based on trends found on the runway.  The bottles and the silicone sleeve are dishwasher safe, and you don’t actually have to remove the silicone sleeve from the bottle to wash it if you don’t want to.  Each bottle comes with a screw top lid, that when closed is airtight.  The lid also designed with a handle as a part of it.  This is both good and bad.  Good because it makes it easier to carry, bad, if you are like me and tend to swing things as you walk around.

What I particularly like is just how easy it is to take one of these bkr® bottles with me while I’m on the go.  Even filled, the bkr® bottles are not heavy and take up very little room.  They fit well in my handbag, and being leak-proof means that there are no unfortunate spills in my bag.  The silicone sleeve also means that the bottle doesn’t slip and slide across the surface if it is wet.

Really once I decided to purchase  a bkr® bottle, the hardest part was deciding just what colour to get.  I think I may pick up a few more pretty soon.  I can see myself ending up with a pretty large collection of these bkr® 500 ml bottles.

The bkr® 500 ml water bottle retails for $33 CAD and are available online through!

    I’ve been debating whether or not to get one of these for so long…they’re pricey, but SO pretty, it might be the push I need to drink more water!

      I was eyeing these for a long time, and I finally bit the bullet and got two. Now I want more. I think that is the problem, you can’t stop at just one. They are a bit pricey, but well worth it.
