Personal Shopper: A cute, leak-proof coffee travel mug for Cassie's college years

Cassie P. writes, "Hey Outblush, So... First off, I gotta do the gushy fan thing and let you all know how much I love you! You're in one of my Google-Chrome-thumb-tacked-homepages and I'm probably on your site more than facebook (well that's a lie, but you're definitely a close second). Anyway, I'm starting my Sophomore year of college and am on the search (and have been for a while) for the perfect coffee tumbler to take to class. I've had OXO, Contigo, Aladdin, you name it. But I can't find the PERFECT one. It needs to keep my coffee/tea hot for as long as possible, have a no-leak lid, and definitely be cute and colorful. Can you guys help me out? Thank you! Cassie P"

Janetor here: Aw, thanks, Cassie! Gush all you want, it's nice to know people like the site! =^) Here are eight cute travel mugs, all claiming leakproof, long-lasting-heat status. Enjoy, and good luck on your sophomore year!

PS - Random tip for you, since we're guessing you brew your own coffee (What college student doesn't have a coffee pot?): Sprinkle some cinnamon in with the grounds before brewing. It'll smell and taste amazing.

The absolute best travel mug I've found is the Contigo mug. Keeps coffee hot for hours (no, really), and it won't leak at all.
I bought them at Costco, but they are also here:
