Since I made the switch to S'well last year, I've been ruined for every other bottle since. At first, I balked at the price. $45? For a freaking water bottle? 'Never!' I declared, even though Bieber warned me against ever uttering such a word.
While at first I refused to spend my hard-earned blogger money on the bottle, I was lucky to be gifted a gorgeous wood-grain S'well at a media event. The minute it touched my lips, it was love. My water stayed cold, my tea stayed hot, even my scotch...kidding. I sat my kids down the day I brought it home and forced them to look me directly in my eyes. 'This is mommy's water bottle. Do you understand? Mommy's bottle.' My husband rolled his eyes. My other water bottles toppled over in disgust.
After my son lost my bottle at school the next day, I felt lost and dehydrated without it. I went and bought a bikini pink S'well and it's been my yoga companion ever since. Since a girl should always have a back-up, I treated myself to a champagne gold bottle because, let's be honest, it looks good on my Instagram feed. Excessive? Maybe. Worth it? Totally.
So why all the fuss? Touted as the original 'hydration accessory, S'well keeps drinks cold for an impressive 24 hours and hot for 12. It's made of double-walled stainless steel, is non-toxic, non-leaching and BPA free. It fits in a standard-sized cup-holder (and we all know how annoying that is when it doesn't). Plus, with every purchase of S'well, a donation is made to UNICEF to help provide clean drinking water to children around the world. Isn't that just S'well? Jean Machine just started carrying S'well bottles so if you don't already own one, let this be your pre-spring treat. I can't think of better way to get those 8 glasses in.
