Review and Giveaway: Strawesome- 1 Winner - US Only- Ends 3/4


I received a really fun straw to review from Strawesome!

For my review I received a bent smoothie straw with a decorative, hunter green swirl around it. I love it!
I cannot tell you how many straws we go through! Here in Florida, it's just like you'd imagine it; Sun and  Smoothies on the beach. Only, well, in my case, it's not at the beach. Me, my mom and my grandma are on our lanai everyday. And everyday we pour a type of drink, and use straws. We then sit on the porch for hours just talking, and playing different types of games.

So as you can imagine, I was super excited to try out this awesome straw from Strawesome! As you all know, I am trying to do my part by keeping trash out of our landfills. I mean, sure, a straw isn't very big, but think of all of the straws that get used in fast food restaurants, and all other restaurants, everyday. It really adds up! I am glad to saw I am doing my part in the straw department too! :)

All of Strawsomes straws are one of a kind, and they are all made in the USA. I really love Strawsome, and I am planning on getting straws for my mother and grandma too.

Oh! And 1 more important thing I wanted to mention! Strawesome has an awesome guarantee! If you break your straw, they'll send you a replacement! How awesome is that!?

Here are a few of my favorite straws!
The Be My Valentine Straw:
and the Bent Skinny Straw:

Overall, I am very impressed with Strawesome! They have some amazing glass straws!

The Giveaway!


1 of you will received a Strawesome Straw of your own!
