Day 24: Xigua
Xigua is another word for Watermelon! It’s actually the Mandarin Chinese name and it typically refers to the smaller rounder watermelons grown in China.
We are not in watermelon season at the moment, but I was still able to get my hands on one, thankfully!!
I don’t often post pictures of myself, but I wanted to take this opportunity to give a shout out to my very good friend, who also happens to be my hairstylist @patriceperrone.
She was the one who inspired me to do this series of #27DaysOfThanks, and I’m so glad I did! 🙂
She recently gave me a fresh bang trim and a few layers around my face! If you need a great stylist in the Los Angeles area, she is your gal!
Give her some ♥ @patriceperrone
3 Reasons to eat Watermelon:
- Watermelon is 92% water which makes it very hydrating and refreshing. It also has loads of minerals, antioxidants and vitamins.
- Eating watermelon, or having a watermelon juice will replenish your body and provide generous amounts of vitamin C instantly. This can help boost your immune system when you are feeling weak.
- Watermelon is an excellent source of fiber and is anti-inflamitory.
See you tomorrow for letter “Y.” ♥
