MOM #GIVEAWAY and review: Contigo Travel Mug

One of the hardest things about being a new-again mom is that I never seem to have time to finish a cup of hot tea. By the time I've plugged in the kettle, steeped the tea and poured it, Erik is needing my attention again, and by the time I get back, the tea is lukewarm at best.

This mother's day, I have finally found a solution!  I was sent a Contigo West Loop travel mug that has become my go to mug for hot tea!

Never spill another drop! 100% spill- and leak-proof travel mug uses exclusiveAUTOSEAL® technology to prevent accidental spills. Press the AUTOSEAL® button to sip, and release the button to automatically seal. This self-sealing lid technology is combined with a double-wall, vacuum-insulated, stainless steel mug, providing exceptional temperature retention. Beverages stay hot for 4 hours or cold for 12 hours. 

  • Patented AUTOSEAL® lid is 100% leak-proof and 100% spill-proof.
  • Drinking made easy! Press to sip. Release to seal. TheAUTOSEAL® Stainless Steel Mug automatically seals between sips to ensure no spills.
  • Vacuum-insulated technology keeps beverages hot for 4 hours, and cold for 12 hours.
  • Contoured body makes this travel mug easy to hold and easy on the eyes.
  • The AUTOSEAL® Stainless Steel Mug will hold up to 16 oz. of your favorite beverage and fits most standard car cupholders.
  • Constructed with a double wall and stainless steel inside and out for maximum travel mug performance.

I tested out their claims and it really does keep my tea hot for more than 4 hours!  The other thing that I love about the West Loop is that it really is spill proof!  I am forever carrying too much stuff and it got turned over on the way down the stairs and didn't spill a drop!  This feature is going to come in handy now that Erik is on the move and into everything - he is forever grabbing things and I don't want him to grab hold of a hot cup of tea and spill it on himself.  The walls of the West Loop stay cool and because it is spill proof, he can knock it over and I know he'll be safe!  

I honestly want one in every color!  

One of my readers will win their own Contigo West Loop travel mug!
