Pavina hot-cold glassware
My mom has gotten me into the habit of always using insulated cups because, of course, your drinks stay cold for more than five minutes that way, but also because they are often those gigantic, leak-proof thermoses that won't spill even when they're knocked over. They're great because I don't have to worry about my dogs making huge messes, but on the other hand, they kind of make me look like a way overgrown toddler who can't drink from a regular cup and still needs a sippy.
I am trying to be grown-up and have a nice-looking home so I'm upgrading to the Pavina cooler. These double-walled drinking glasses made of insulated, heat-resistant Borosilicate glass keep cold drinks cold and hot ones hot but look so much nicer than thermal mugs. The medical-grade glass was made for lab use, and is actually lighter and thinner than traditional glass so even with the double layer, you have a beautiful glass that feels and looks like a normal one. Borosilicate particles are so tightly packed that they are cloud-resistant and will continue to look crystal clear even after many wash cycles.
It doesn't solve the problem of the dog spills, but perhaps I should stop sharing drinking cups with them and get them some dog bowls. I'm kidding!
