From self-care supplements to summer mocktail upgrades, here’s what Hip & Healthy founder, Sadie is loving in the world of wellness right now.
Tonic Water Just Got An Upgrade
Like all good brands, Skinny Tonic was founded because someone saw a problem that needed fixing. Ian, the drinks brand’s Founder, at just 23 years was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. This, of course, had a huge impact on his life, and one of the areas he was sad about saying goodbye to was a good Gin and Tonic, as he found out that even tonics low in sugar made his blood sugar levels spike. Therefore, he embarked on a journey to create a tonic water that was delicious, and had absolutely no sugar in it whatsoever. Skinny Tonic was born and Ian’s was able to indulge in his most loved social drink. Not only does Skinny Tonic contain zero sugar and zerod calories it is also 100% natural and is made using pure spring water from Staffordshire. Coming in a range of 10 refreshing flavours, there is something for everyone – I can’t decide which of the British Raspberry or Cucumber flavour is my favourite. Plus, the aluminium cans that the tonic water comes in are both made from recycled aluminum and are fully recyclable.

The Drinks Brand for The Non-Drinker; The Sometimes-Drinker, The TeeTotaller And Me!
I was introduced to this amazing tropical, non-alcoholic drinks brand Caleño when they first launched and my love for it has grown stronger ever since. I am that person who loves seeing my friends and socialising in fun places but hates getting so drunk that I feel rubbish the next day – and so Caleño has been a very welcome addition in my life. After a glass of Rosé I’d usually switch to boring tonic water for the rest of the night but gone are those days! Now I’ll order a Caleno cocktail and not feel like a total bore. My favourite is their Light + Zesty served with some tonic water and some lemon peel – heaven. On July 7th I’ll be live on our instagram, @hipandhealthy, with Caleño Founder, Ellie (more on Ellie here) making some fun cocktails – so please do join us at 6.00pm for some cocktail inspiration!

Fertility and Pregnancy Support You Can Count On
When I was pregnant I took a concoction of different supplements that I was advised to take to support my body through each trimester – at some points, I felt like I was positively rattling with a variety of different pills. Plus, I had horrid morning sickness and even swallowing a couple of pills was tricky let alone 3 or 4 a day. I have recently learned about this amazing brand Proceive, which set out to challenge the current pregnancy and preconception supplement market and offer the most functional, comprehensive and evidence-based nutritional supplements for men and women before conception and for women right through your pregnancy. Using clinical data from a wide range of scientific studies on key nutrients, Proceive has developed a range of conception and pregnancy products that provide tailored nutrients delivered at optimal strength in highly absorbable forms. Not only have they won a host of awards but they also have an array of glowing testimonials over on their Instagram @proceive.
