I have a challenge. To make you fall in love with a water bottle. 

I know you’re thinking ‘A water bottle? Really?’

But let me tell you, you will seriously want this bottle in your life!

Sold by a company called ‘Style Sportif‘, this S’well bottle will become your new handbag essential. Oh and did I mention that you’ll be helping to save the planet too?


Do you ever leave your water bottle in your bag or in your car, only to come back and find its to warm to drink and the plastic feels way too soft to hold?

Do you ever take a coffee with you from home only to open your bottle and find that it’s luke warm, or worse cold!

Do you ever do a workout at the gym and wish for ice filled water to be in arms reach?

In 2010, a company called S’well was launched with a mission to rid the world of plastic bottles.

They set about designing stylish water bottles and ended up creating a range of beautifully crafted stainless steel bottles, that don’t just look good, but are pretty clever too.

Swell Bottle Style Sportif

Here are 10 reasons why the S’well bottle is fab:

  1. They stay hot for 12 hours – Perfect for soups or coffee on the go!
  2. They stay cold for 24 hours – I wonder if this bottle can handle Prosecco?
  3. They’re saving the planet – Goodbye plastic bottles!
  4. They’re stylish – Some of the designs are truly gorgeous. Check out some of the other options here!
  5. The mouth is wide enough for ice cubes, but small enough for drip-free sipping!
  6. The bottle fits in a standard size cup holder – Perfect for if you’re driving or at the gym.
  7. The bottles do not condensate – Which means no dampness in your bag.
  8. They’re vaccum sealed – No naughty escaping coffee or water here!
  9. 18/8 double-walled stainless steel, non toxic, non leaching and BPA free
  10. They support UNICEF – in bringing clean water to countries who need it.

*Bonus reason – They’ll make the perfect addition to your Instagram lifestyle pictures!

Have you been convinced?

Style Sportif Swell Bottle

So S’well bottles are the stylish, they’re saving the planet, they’re bag size, they keeps your drinks cool for 24 hours and hot for 12…if Style Sportif can get a simple thing like a water bottle to blow us away, then wait till you see the rest of their products.

I’ve always wanted to be one of those people that do yoga on the beach at sunrise, and run on the beach at sunset. I have the beach on my doorstep, but the only thing thats ever put me off (aside from the occasional rainy day) is my work out gear.

My workout gear is practical, but it’s so beyond ugly.  I avoid the gym at busy times and I cover up when I’m too-ing and from the gym for fear that people will see me.

I want to feel good when I work out. Don’t you?

I don’t know about you, but when I wear plain, old baggy tops and leggings I feel so sluggish and more in the mood for a duvet day coupled with Netflix than a morning workout at the gym. When I work out I want to put on my work out ‘uniform’ and boss it.

The founder of Style Sportif had the same problem, so set about creating gorgeous workout wear that is both stylish and practical.

How absolutely flipping gorgeous are these leggings? With a pair of these on and one of their Lunar Barre Denim Grey Crop Tops, there is no stopping me from hitting the beach for a sunset run or a morning stretch.

Plus there will be no more quick dashes from my car to the gym. If only they could sell pre-formed abs as well!

  3. June 28, 2016 / 1:28 pm

    I love that it just the right size to carry around & would hold enough liquid for a workout without running out.

  31. July 4, 2016 / 4:10 pm

    Not many claim use the “hot things hot and cold things cold” as a selling point, so the confidence in this product is positive. I’d love to try it, but wonder if water ends up tasting soupy after a few uses?

    July 5, 2016 / 1:53 pm

    I love that it keeps your drink hot or cold for 12 hours many times ive had to stop my workout to get a colder drink as I absolutely can’t stand it when a cold drink goes warm this bottle sounds amazing

  39. July 5, 2016 / 4:05 pm

    I pretty much love everything about it from reading your post!! Definitely the fact that it fits in a standard size cup holder, I’ve had so many water bottles in the past that won’t stand up in my car and fit in my holder, arghhh!! I also love that the neck is wide enough to fit in ice cubes, brilliant idea!

  40. Tracy B
    July 5, 2016 / 7:12 pm

    Oh my! The S’well Bottle looks amazing! Perfect for someone who runs like I do…..I LOVE winter runs and long hikes, so having a bottle that can keep a hot drink hot for me, would be amazing!

  41. Jess Mary
    July 5, 2016 / 8:03 pm

    The amount of times we go for a picnic and I come to get my coffee and it’s lukewarm 🙁 I’m on the hunt to find something that keeps it warm and I think this may be the answer! Loving the leggings as well!

  45. Susan B
    July 6, 2016 / 10:22 am

    The fact that the S’well bottles are non-plastic and environmentally friendly does it for me. As for the Style Sportif ranges, I have yet to find a classier and cooler range of sportswear.

  46. Chantiece Bates
    July 6, 2016 / 11:33 am

  48. Natalie White
    July 6, 2016 / 8:47 pm

    The fact that it stays cool for so long is sooooo good! I hate drinking warm water, so I tend to stop drinking through the day when my water warms up which is so bad!

  49. Jo McPherson
    July 6, 2016 / 9:00 pm
