I LOVE this water bottle! I used to make motivational water bottles out of the gallons I bought at the store by writing sayings on the side, but I think I only made it through a whole gallon once, and I had to rewrite my inspiration on each new gallon I bought. I was so excited to come across this bottle and absolutely love it. It is made of super durable plastic with a smooth finish that is easy to hold and feels good in my hands. There is a slight indention on each side to make it easy to hold, and it has a flip down handle for carrying. I honestly couldn’t figure out how to open the cap at first, but it flips open when pushed in. I love that my straw pops up when the cap opens and pushes down again when the cap is closed. This version holds eight cups of water, which is a better size for me until I get used to drinking that much water in one day. I added crystals such as rose quartz for self-love to mine, and the motivational sayings with the time next to each one keeps me on track. So happy with this purchase! It has replaced all my other bottles, including my Yeti.
