With summer comes repeated trips to the beach. And spending a day a the beach requires in addition to sunscreen and a good suit, lots to nosh on and plenty of H2O. I would always stop at the nearest convince store closest to the beach to pick up bottled water and throw it in my bag before I headed to the shore. But after only an hour the water would get warm and after another hour it would get down right hot. It would also sweat and make everything in my bag a bit wet. But hot or not I drank the water, often wondering how many chemicals I was ingesting from the heated up plastic. When I was finished I would take the bottle home to recycle it and was dismayed at how many plastic bottles I was using.
She loved it because it didn’t sweat, was light which makes it easy to carry around, and it keep her water cold
Well a few weeks ago when I was in line at Long Beach to buy my summer pass I started chatting with the young woman behind me in line. She was from Michigan and lived in Long Beach and worked as a nurse in East Rockaway. She chose to live in Long Beach so she could fully enjoy the New York shores, and she visited the beach a few times a week. I noticed the bottle she had and inquired about it, and she said it was great to bring to the beach. She loved it because it didn’t sweat, was light, which makes it easy to carry around, and it kept her water cold.
I had heard of S’well before and knew that people were going gaga over their “bottles”, but I didn’t realize that they were actually thermoses. I thought they were just bottles. Once I found that they kept liquids hot or cold I knew I had to have one. So the very next day I headed to the new Starbucks in my neighborhood and picked up this gorgeous sea foam green bottle. The young woman I had chatted with had one in a similar color and this was one of things I liked about the bottle she had, so when I saw this one I did a little dance in my head.
The bottles are limited editions and perfect for the summer season
This bottle or should I say thermos is a collaboration between Starbucks, S’well and up and coming artists. This particular bottle features the art of Kelsey Montague. I adore the quirky illustration and the angle wings design. The bottles are limited editions and perfect for the summer season. So do hurry in to your local Starbucks as these will not last long. In fact the last time I was there, the sea foam green bottles were no longer available, and they are now displayed in a pale blue. Don’t you love when art and commerce come together? I know I do!
