Friday Favorites: Mizu

I have to say, I am pretty stinking excited about this new "series" I am starting - FRIDAY FAVORITES (Who doesn't love alliteration?! I know I DO!).

I would LOVE to say that every week I will be able to GIVEAWAY one of my favorite things, but unfortunately I don't have that many hook-ups or an unlimited budget for my blog (wouldn't that be nice though?!). Even so, I still want to post something that I am really digging each week, and if we are lucky, you will be able to get your hands on it!

*****************************************************************************

I am STOKED to start off this series with Mizu.

In case you don't know who they are, I posted a review of their AMAZING bottles a few months back. I'd love for you to check it out if you have a second and didn't read it the first time around!

Since getting my first bottle I have been using it CONSTANTLY!

Filling it at a water station while on a layover at the O'Hare Airport
on our way back to Michigan to celebrate Thanksgiving with family.
PS Why can't EVERYWHERE have filling stations like this?! 

Alongside a yummy breakfast on our porch while on vacation in Barbados.

Hydrating at the beach after a nice, easy run.

And a few weeks back I was even able to stop by their offices (I ABSOLUTELY LOVE supporting local businesses!) in Del Mar and pick up a couple items to GIVEAWAY to my AMAZING friends, family, and followers!!

Love how they have some of their bottles displayed in the office. 

I was able to grab 2 Party Cups for one lucky reader. They hold 1US Pint of liquid, are made of 18/8 Food Grade Stainless Steel, are 100% BPA Free, 100% Reusable, 100% Recyclable, and 100% AMAZING! You can use these while you are sitting around a summer bonfire (although, they are not made for hot liquids, you are definitely able to enjoy a 'cold one' in them), in your man cave, great for tailgating, YOU NAME IT, THESE WILL WORK FOR IT!

Mizu was BEYOND generous and also offered up an M8, Glossy Grey, GLOW IN THE DARK Bottle! It holds 800ML (27oz) of liquid, is made of 18/8 Food Grade Stainless Steel, has an angled top for smooth flow, is 100% BPA Free, 100% Reusable, 100% Recyclable, and 100% SPIFFERIFIC! These bottles even come with a Lifetime Warranty! (As you can see from my love for them, they are AWESOME-SAUCE, but I think my favorite part is that they fit in car cup-holders. I know, I know, sometimes it is the little things. I have had a few reusable bottles in my day {HA, understatement of the year} and LOVE when they are convenient for me to take ANYWHERE and EVERYWHERE!)


a Rafflecopter giveaway

Not only do I have these two Rafflecopter Giveaways going on, but I also have an Instagram Giveaway running right now as well! Make sure to check out my Instagram account {CarleeMcDot} for another opportunity to win!


These giveaways will run until Thursday, June 12th at 11:59pm PST - I mean we HAVE to have a winner before the next Friday Favorite post, right?! Best of luck to you! But even if you don't win, I would HIGHLY suggest checking Mizu out - THEY ARE ONE OF MY FAVORITES!! 

PS You kind of HAVE to love Mizu, I mean, look at the water station
they will be bringing to events this summer to help keep people hydrated!

Can't have too many water bottles, especially the stainless variety!

I look for something that is easy to clean,and a good size. Make sure it keeps my water cold for awhile.

SD Mom said...

I only use reusable bottles! And they HAVE to be BPA free!

The Silent Assassin said...

No doubt, about that filling station! We need it everywhere! Btw, tell Mizu to make some for my hydration belt. Lol.. I scrolled past this post and I saw your bingo face again. Crack me up!!

Julie Burleson said...

I always look for BPA-free for reusable bottles, and if it fits in a car cupholder and is also BPA-free that's like living the dream! Sounds amazing!

Tami said...

It has to fit it a cup holder and not leave a bad taste in the bottle after I use it

Becky Ginther said...

I'm looking for something that's easy to hold and carry while I run!

Amy Shuman said...

Must look good on my desk at work, be easy to open, and be easy to wash. :)

runningsouthern said...

My bottle must be easy to clean and I also love one that won't sweat.

Laurel C said...

First and foremost they have to be simple to get clean!

Lindsay said...

Easy to clean and lightweight!

It Ain't Easy Being Megan said...

Who doesn't love a reusable bottle!! And I do agree more places need filling stations instead of the old water fountain.

Kasparbauer Family said...

dishwasher safe!

Dani said...

It needs to be lightweight and fit in my cup holder.

Erin T said...

It has to be fun, lightweight and be able to last a long time!

Wehaf said...

I need something easy to wash, lightweight, and with a comfortable drinking spout. Bonus points if it fits into a car cupholder.

Dave Burns said...

Trisha said...

Sky Evans said...

For me I love something lightweight!

Number one is keep my water cold! -Megan

Heather said...

I like my bottles to have a lid that has a loop/carabiner, or anything to make it easier to carry. I also love when it's dishwasher safe – I generally hand wash things, but feel everything needs a deep clean once in a while, hence the dishwasher.

Evelin said...

Leak free, pretty, light and easy to bring along and of course, easy to clean are my must-haves for a reusable bottle. In fact, I looooove water bottles and am always up for trying a new brand/model (even though I might not NEED one) :)

Elizabeth said...

Sustainable--glass or metal, or 100% indestructible BPA-free plastic.

Easy to refill--no super narrow necks.

Cute, possible sticker-able.
