{Giveaway}: Strawesome is Awesome! - CLOSED



You may have already guessed by the name of my blog 
that I like to add fun and flair to my drinks!

Strawesome does just that and it is so much better for the environment!

Strawesome offers unique, decorative and reusable glass straws 
for drinking your favorite beverages.
They even work fantastic for smoothies.
(see below)


These straws are made from borosilicate glass which is non-toxic.
This cannot be said for plastic drinking straws.

They are also reusable. No plastic straws ending up in the landfill.

Finally, they are so adorable!
Imagine drinking your daily water requirement through one of these beauties!
I bet you would drink more water that way!

Need more reasons? Check out Why Use Reusable Straws?

I am so happy with the decorative straw that I was sent to review.
It is the perfect size.
The decorative glass on it is so cool!
The thick glass just feels good on your lips when you take a sip!

I was also happy to learn that they are dishwasher safe!

Buy It: Strawesome Straws can be purchased 
in a variety of fun colors, shapes and sizes from their website.
