friday favourite – s’well

About this time last year I raved about my new water bottle – the stainless steel Hydro Flask. While I still love it, it now has a little competition…Hydro Flask, meet S’well.


My good friend LKG gave me the S’well water bottle for my birthday. It’s similar to the Hydro Flask — stainless steel, keeps beverages hot or cold, doesn’t sweat — but it’s just a little more sophisticated! It’s as if your cool city-dwelling cousin came to visit and suddenly you feel a little shabby.

I like extremes when it comes to my beverages…

Coffee needs to be piping hot. Water needs to be icy cold.

I heat my milk before adding it to my coffee so it meets my temperature requirements.

Then I drink it. No interruptions, no conversation, just me and my scalding hot coffee.

Same is true for cold beverages. I want the glass filled with ice before I add a shot of gin for my G&T. When I’m exercising, I want cold water.

So, I was thrilled when I discovered the Hydro Flask Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle. No plastic to smell, no glass to break, just sturdy stainless steel. It has a wide mouth so I can add ice cubes, comes in all kinds of colours AND best of all, it doesn’t sweat! I can throw it in my bag and not ruin everything that the water bottle touches.
