Review AND Giveaway - Manna 20oz Insulated Retro Bottle

Hi Readers!

I've got a nice surprise for you, the chance to win your very own 20 ounce Retro Bottle like the one in the picture below from Manna where they have a HUGE array of assorted hydration bottles!

I love the many different styles as well as designs Manna has! You're not stuck as I was, reusing a plastic bottle until it's almost out of life! I find it's easy to handle and if you follow their directions on how to keep it clean (attached on the bottle), you won't find that gunk at the bottom that is always hard to get at. Also, the 20 ounce size is really more than enough if you're like me who takes water on my walks - and I'm a heavy drinker when I'm walking! 

I haven't tried putting anything hot in it, but it does keep your cold beverages cold which will be a blessing come summer!

I am very pleased as it does do the exact job as advertised and would recommend for that reason. Please see their site for complete specifications etc., HERE

The only down side to it is, I can see that after MUCH use, it will show age. Will it scratch? Probably. I, myself, love flowers AND pink, so even if it does scratch in the future, I know I will still enjoy the look and quality for years to come. The price is affordable, not going to break the bank, but I wouldn't pay more for it - regardless of brand, as I am forever losing stuff and I'd hate to lose this one.

Now, onto the giveaway. the nice people at Manna are offering THREE, yes...THREE of our readers their very own! The giveaway starts TODAY and will run until Saturday, March 31st.

Must be in the US
Must be 18 or over
And must be able to respond to the winning email within a 24 hour period if notified.

a Rafflecopter giveaway
(Disclaimer: Manna provided me with a free product to review and I was under no obligation to write a positive review or sponsor a product giveaway in return for the free products, and received no monetary means to do so)

Side Note...

Hi folks! I hope you're getting some of this sunshine today! It's not yet 50 degrees here, but that sure is inviting!

As for me, I am a Christian - we celebrate Easter in a couple of weeks and so I am posting religious freebies as I find them.

If you're not a Christian, no biggie...just bypass those posts.

If you're not sure WHY we celebrate Easter, it's simple....a single man loved you and you and you AND me, so darn much, he literally took all the bad of each one of us gladly and died for us, yes, he DIED for you and you and you AND me! There's not a single human being so in love with each and every one of us to lay down his literal life, to bear the pain and suffering AND that would do it all again, just to show you how much He loves you!

Commercialism and paganism brought on the bunnies, eggs and chocolate, etc...

Regardless, have fun preparing for the holiday!!
