When an invite landed in my inbox to have breakfast with my favorite designer, Stacey Bendet and workout with Kerry Washington's trainer, Juliet Kaska, at the same event, I quickly RSVPed "yes." Last Friday morning I dressed in my best Lulu Lemon attire and headed to Chaise 23 to check out what all the fuss what about.
It was a drink called ACTIVATE Drinks, nutrient enhanced waters that activate when you twist the cap. Turns out, some nutrients in vitamin infused drinks lose their potency after sitting in the water for a while. Who knew? This was really innovative and I'm actually surprised skincare didn't start making packaging like this yet.
I got to speak with Stacey Bendet who told me she's had Activate in all of her stores on the West coast. I like that it promotes "a healthy lifestyle as a designer and a mom it's important. Plus, it's great for a hangover and a boost in the morning." Rachel Roy was also there checking out the goods.
Juliet Kaska currently trains Kerry Washington and Stacey Kiebler and is also on board with the drink. She taught us an infusion of ballet, pilates and yoga that she also teaches to her leading ladies. Working out with her was inspiring.
