You may not know this about me, but I’m a commuter. On an average day, I drive just shy of 90 miles (roundtrip) for work, and that doesn’t include dropping off and picking up the girls from daycare. Oh no, that’s extra. It’s okay if you think I’m crazy, lots of people do. But for the most part commuting isn’t all that bad – I listen listen to music, catch up on some news, and get a little quiet time. Of course, there are other days like this that are not so fun.
No worries on taking pictures while driving, I was actually in park. No one was moving. Ugh. These are the days when I hate being a commuter.
But you know what makes it better? Caffeine! Lots and lots of it! I may not be a coffee drinker, but I do love my caffeine. And soda is my beverage of choice on any given morning – it perks me right up and gives me the patience to deal with the not-so-awesome South Florida drivers that clog the highways I depend on. My favorite cup to transport that oh-so-important nectar is made by Contigo.
What makes that cup so special you ask? Well, besides being purple, it’s an AUTOSEAL® West Loop Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Mug. It’s special double wall design keeps cold beverages (like mine) cold for up to 12 hours. That will not only get me through my hour long commute to work, but it will get me through the work day and my commute home…although my soda rarely lasts quite that long. And if you like hot beverages, it will keep them hot for up to 4 hours, which should be more than enough to get you through the morning.
Besides it’s uncanny ability to keep beverages at their desired temperature, it’s dishwasher safe, fits in my car’s cup holder perfectly, and has a one handed design that doesn’t include caps or spouts. But best of all, the AUTOSEAL® lid makes this cup is completely spill proof. Simply fill the mug, screw the lid on, and you are good to go! When you go to take a sip from the mug and press down on the AUTOSEAL® button, you’ll actually hear the vacuum seal working. It’s really neat. And it means that I can throw the mug into the bottom of my purse when I’m done with it and not worry about it leaking – it’s sealed!
My mug is a 16 oz size, which is perfect for me (especially considering my small bladder during pregnancy – anything bigger than that would be downright dangerous), but the cup also comes in a 20 oz size. The 20 oz mug will keep drinks warm for 6 full hours, which makes it perfect for my husband’s coffee addiction.
