I grew up with a mother who saved plastic containers and bottles to reuse and re-purpose, so I became a person who also saves bottles and jars to reuse and re-purpose. But, then I found out that the store-bought water bottles are not only bad for the environment, they can leach chemicals the more you re-use them. And plastic bottles bond with oils and fats, so they're not good for re-using, either. Today, I have a few bottles to share with you that I've been loving for my bottle needs!
A few weeks ago, I shared with you my review for a Tritan plastic fruit-infuser water bottle - and I liked it. But, it has a screw-top, and that doesn't always work for me, especially when I have wet nails! This bottle from Fruitissimo has a flip-top!
I was afraid that the flip-top would leak, but it didn't. I held it upside down, shook it - nothing. It has a good seal, and yet, I can lift the top with a finger and drink easily through the spout.
I wish the basket was a little longer, but that does mean that there's room for some ice - or, you can freeze your fruit first, and it'll keep the water colder, longer. Without the basket, it's still a great water bottle - it holds 28 oz of liquid, and is reusable, recyclable, and can be used with carbonated water, too.

Now that I'm hydrated on the inside, when I want to create my own scented oils for keeping my skin hydrated, I'm loving these little cobalt blue glass spray bottles!
The cobalt color can help protect the contents from light, and the spray dispenser protects from contamination, so your products stay fresher, longer.

I recently got a bottle of shimmer body oil, but it came in a flip-top dispenser that made it difficult for me to use. With a spray bottle, I can get a even, light layer of the oil all over my body - even in areas that are harder for me to reach. And, this way, I don't get clumps of glitter in any one spot - the spray mist is fine enough to dispense just a little of the shimmer for a flattering glow.
This set of 2 8oz glass bottle sprayers retails for $11.09 on Amazon.
