The days are heating up and it seems only fair that I share my favorite hot weather accessory: my Swell Water Bottle.
According to the Swell website the bottle can be used to keep drinks cold for twenty four hours or it can be used as a thermos to keep drinks warm for twelve hours. This is not an advertisement, I just want to share that this is the only water bottle I have ever found that actually holds up to its cooling promise, I have left this bottle in the sun for hours and beverage remained refreshingly chilled (haven’t tried using it as a thermos yet, that will be a winter post). I am such a fan I use this water bottle not only when I am out and about (it is the best gym water bottle ever!), but also at home. It is also perfect for those hot summer evenings when you crave cold water that is easily accessible as you slumber. Just put in some ice, place the bottle on your bedside table, and you will be good to go until morning.
If you are looking for a summer read, check out Light is the New Black pictured above. I cannot recommend this book highly enough to anyone looking for a little guidance figuring out just what it is you are supposed to be doing during your time on earth. The book is both approachable and an entertaining read; a positive resource to help you find your way. It is perfect for trips to the beach or the park, where you can sip from your Swell water bottle while reading.
Stay cool, hydrated, and shine your light!
