Due to that constant paranoia, I've been drinking out of large glass bottles for some time. The ones I use hold between 27 and 32 oz of water, which is generally enough for anywhere I'll be at a given time. It's much safer, environmentally friendly and requires less trips to the drinking fountain... yay!

First, hit up your local T.J. Maxx, Homegoods, Marshall's or any sort of specialty grocery store. There you'll find the perfect bottle! I buy a French brand of fizzy pop at any of those places called "Rieme". It is the exact same shape and size as a love bottle. There are a few other brands as well, you'll see them. They cost between $2.99 and $3.99 per bottle. Much cheaper already!
Next up is decor. You can choose how crazy you want to get.
(A) If you want to go super cheap, use a sharpie (but you'll have to reapply).
(B) You can also get glass paint at Jo-Ann Fabric for $2/bottle.
(C) There are paint markers as well, but again... I've found that those wash and rub off.
(D) Michael's also sells transfers. I got a really cute key design for $1, I'll update you about how long it stays on.
(E) Use packing tape to secure on collage paper, stickers, designs printed from the internet/your computer. This won't be permanent, either :)
(F) You can purchase decorative packing tape at craft stores as well.

Stencil on a design you like (or your name!) and then color it in with your medium. If you mess up, use nail polish remover or rubbing alcohol with a q-tip to erase it.
You're done! A super cute bottle, personalized for you, and at a far greater discount. Enjoy!
I'm debating about a Thanksgiving post. I shouldn't... but there's so much to say this week! If I don't post tomorrow, here's to a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving! Celebrate and be content. And try not to venture out on Black Friday :)
