REVIEW: KEEP CUP - DESIGN YOUR OWN AND EXPRESS YOUR PERSONALITY


Happy Monday, Blogland!

I'm here to kick your week off with a fun, affordable, color-tastic reusable and recyclable cup with lid and sip cover called the KeepCup! You choose the size you want, ranging from extra small to large, and then, pick from a multitude of color combinations, be it neutrals or brights, for only $8.50-$14.20, depending on the size you choose and no matter what colors!

I am someone who likes to be able to take my coffee, or should I say my peppermint mocha creamer with a bit of coffee...hehe...on the go, and these days, with so many people out and about, busy and working a lot, that cup almost becomes an accessory for your day!

The concept is that you can take a marker and fill in the indented words that represent what your order usually is, making it the "first barista standard reusable cup." Therefore, you can choose your drink of chose, such as latte, mocha, fat-free, Splenda, ect., so, when you go to a coffee shop they just read what you want off of the cup and fill your order.

I created a few color combinations below just for fun to show you some examples, but you can design your own on their site, and then view it, including a 360 degree view of it, before finalizing your design, which expresses your own personal style! It's super fun!

Testing out my KeepCup, filled with my yummy peppermint mocha, out and about on a beautiful day!

I think the idea is creative and environmentally friendly, and the cups themselves are definitely adorable with all the fun colors and options!

One thing I think could make it even better is if there was a way to make the band surface, the area where you select your drink options, something that allows the ink to stay put, but also have the ability to be taken off, possibly with a certain remover, so, the user can alter their order.

Therefore, my one tip would be to possibly include a certain pen that works on their band surface, which does just that with each order, making it unique to the KeepCup and even more versatile. Just a friendly thought and suggestion! :)

What are your thoughts and what color combinations would you choose?

They were interested in hearing my honest opinion and any feedback, so, I'm opening it up to each of you too since you are the lovely consumers! :) That said, I really enjoy my new, handy cup, especially while in my car in LA traffic and on road trips, and want to thank Erin for letting me try one out while on the go! :)

On a side note, did any of you watch the Super Bowl on Sunday? I did, after a lovely stroll through downtown LA taking pictures and a yummy lunch at Pete's Cafe & Bar with friends, which you will see in Wednesday's post! GO GIANTS!!!
