I have a lot of things that I use everyday to make my day-to-day life to make it easier to function. Sometimes I forget to share things I have in my closets with you, but today as I was cleaning out, I found an extra that I had and it reminded me to share what I use on a consistent basis. My friends that spend time with me know I am always with my drink tumbler and life without it seems almost impossible. Life happens fast but I can mix my drinks faster! You might say this a one of the things I do to lavishly live life out loud, or you might say that I don’t do water bottles because they spill too much. I love great colors, fun new things and I have been using this particular Shake & Go tumbler for a year plus and loving it. Reusable items like tumblers are great for the environment so I feel like I am doing my part to sustain the beauty of the earth rather than tossing yet another plastic water bottle into a recycle bin. Pretty in green, passionate in orange, no matter what fashionable tumbler I choose day after day I am always greeted by a fun colored drink. Let me share my fashion-friendly, environmentally friendly, beverage tote and spread the love a bit more.
Have you ever brewed a sweet tea in your home brewer and 1/2 way through the beverage just wanted to throw it out because it no longer had the flavor that the first part of the drink had? Drinks settle, and need mixed, or chilled part way through, and that’s a fact, but tumblers don’t allow you to shake the contents up again at least not without spills. The ability to drink the whole drink, and actually mix it back up if the contents settled is priceless and that is what my little ‘Contigo’ Shake & Go Tumbler does. The items above are a few things I like to shake up in my tumbler: Mio, Keurig drinks and sometimes instant drink packs and I can do it easily because the tumbler lets me make it, then shake it up to mix it and take it with me, all in one unit.
The straw on this item can easily be taken out and when it comes out, the flap closes which is how all the mixing happens with out any splashing or spilling. What makes this tumbler so special? The auto close allows you to mix and chill your iced beverages. When you take the straw out, the hole closes and you can shake away without the worry of spills because the lid seals. There is an inside spout which closes the straw hole door. Imagine needing ONE tumbler for hot, or cold drinks, that the kids can use as well and you don’t have to worry about spills. You won’t worry about messes in the car, or on the floor because when the straws are out these are sealed. They are a must have for any family or parent who is on the go and totes a beverage.
The tumbler is like nothing else on the market in the world of tumblers. You brew your drink, shake it, and take it with you. I have been using it with my Keurig. The tumbler fits under most single serve brewers, is shatter resistant, is BPA Free, and has a double wall which means no sweating! Glass size is 16 oz, so if you drink of these in a day you have met your daily liquid intake. The Shake & Go is able to be placed in the dishwasher, top rack! Yeah! 100% leak proof for shaking and mixing when the straw in not in and Yes it does work because my kids have been Shaking and Going since these arrived!
What beverages can you create in this tumbler? If you can imagine it you can create it: iced tea, iced coffee, water enhancers, powered beverages and any other beverages, warm or cold. The colors are really nice on the tumblers, as I mentioned before and they stay bright, wash after wash. What is nice is the fact that with so many colors you can change it up everyday or give each member of your family their own color, keeping each person happy!(mom bliss!)
Speaking of kids, mine go crazy for their Contigos, and shaking their drinks has been a quest to see who is going to leak first but not with these tumblers, they are sealed shut. My kids take pride in putting in their powder mixes, closing the top and then shaking over the floor to drive me insane, because I am always saying, “please don’t spill”. They crack up and have the last laugh with these beverage holders because unlike any of their predecessors they truly don’t spill or leak when the straw is not in the top!
I am over the top when I have a product that I have been using and it works and I am all about sharing what I know! Lavishly living beverage dispensing out loud is a great way to share this product with you and the Contigo is a must have IMO. Fashion-friendly as you can match it up to your wardrobe, pick a favorite color or just be greeted by nice bright colors, and technologically advanced(the straw closure) make these a Dana Vento true take everywhere companion.
