This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Contigo®.  It’s how I stay warm!

This weekend we were Upstate (have you heard about our new adventure?) working hard.  On Sunday morning we were on the land bright and early and it was 27 degrees.  I saw ice on the land.  I shivered and shook as I dove into my work clothes.   Then I immediately grabbed my cup of tea that I made 30 minutes before at the motel.   I knew this would warm me up over the next few hours.

No matter if it’s cold or hot outside I always start my morning off with tea.  During the Winter it’s a hot cup of Oolong.  During the Summer it’s a cold cup of Green Jasmine.   When I walk to work in the Winter I carry my tea in my hands just in case I need a quick drink to warm me up while waiting for the Walk sign.  It helps a lot!


So with a Pumpkin bagel in one hand and Contigo®’s Travel Mug in another, I was ready to get dirty and work all day long.

I first found out about Contigo® mugs about a year ago when a friend gave me a pretty purple plastic bottle that had a sip and seal lock up top.  Since I usually throw my bottle of water in my bag it’s always worrisome that it might spill out all over my laptop.   I’m always looking for mugs that will stay sealed making me less worried about spilling and more worried that I didn’t pack enough tea to drink.

AUTOSEAL® Metra Travel Mug to the left,  AUTOSEAL® West Loop to the right.  Isn’t the travel mug a beauty?

Do you know how dirty it gets building on the land?  I won’t show you my muddy photos.  The Metra Travel Mug is great for those dirty moments because it doesn’t let dirt or debris into your mug.   This would be perfect for lots of outside events, including sporting events and camping trips.  

Their CleanGuard™ spout cover rotates to close off the drinking area when not in use, so users are protected from their fellow commuters’ sneezes (gross, I know).    You can see below how easy it is to turn to protect.  For protection from spilling in my bag they use AUTOSEAL® patented technology to automatically seal between sipping with just a press of a button.

Beverages stay hot for up to 5 hours and cold beverages remain chilled for up to 12 hours due to their double-wall, vacuum insulated Thermalock™ technology.   Matthew had success on keeping his chicken noodle soup warm in the West Loop until lunch time so bonus points on their double usage.

Want to party with me and Contigo?  Join the Twitter party: on Tuesday, December 1 at 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM PST / 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST.  See you there!
