Dasani Wants to Know: What Makes You Sparkle?


I would say I am fairly adventurous and like to be on the go. I definitely enjoy a nice relaxing evening in; either playing video games with my kids, or snuggled up on the couch watching a movie. However, I have to get out of the house at least once a day to avoid going stir crazy. Then I like to get out of town a minimum of once per month. Preferably more, but it isn’t always feasible. One thing I always plan for when on the go, is WATER! Ya know, you simply can’t live without it. There are many adventures and excursions I like to take, with or without the kids, where “Bring Your Own Water” (BYOW?) is a must. If I have my say, and my budget allows, Dasani would be my number one go-to brand of bottled water. The taste is just so crisp, clean and delish! Haven’t you noticed a difference?

If you like a little buzz and sparkle to your drink, then you might be excited about Dasani’s newly launched product – DASANI Sparkling (a sparkling water). To celebrate, they want to know what makes you sparkle! I used to think music and my love for piano is what made me sparkle. I have recently discovered this is not actually true. I think music is definitely therapeutic for me, and may make me stand out, but what truly makes me sparkle is my kids. As many of you know, I have just gone through a divorce (final next week), and with that means I have to share my kids. Lucky for me, their dad didn’t fight for 50/50 custody, and they only go to his place every other weekend. Then, we found the average cost of a divorce in Alberta here. What I have found is that while I used to daydream for a day to myself, at home, where I could do whatever I wanted, and get a lot of things done; I know know that dream sucks!

 I get that reality at least every other week and I have decided that I kind of stink at life when my kids are away. Sure, I can travel and be without them for periods of time, but being home alone in a quiet house, with no kids making noise or distracting me, it’s not all I thought it was cracked up to be. I am simply lost without them. I cry every time, and I wait for them on the curb when it’s time for them to come home. My kids are everything to me, and they truly light up my life, and make me sparkle.

  • I am sorry you are going through this tough time. I got divorced almost 9 years ago. It gets easier. I don’t get excited to send my kids off, but it has gotten easier as we developed a routine. Always sweet when they are back in my arms. I would definitely share a pic of me and my kids for what makes me sparkle!
