Mug is All You Need

I love a good mug. Perhaps I got this trait from my mom. I'm often drinking hot tea & you need a lovely little mug to sip it out of. Obviously. My mom surprised me with this nice gift -- a Kate Spade monogram mug. Too cute.

My name is Carmen (duh), so my letter of choice is C. This mug kind of reminds me of Minnie Mouse, which I'm not ashamed to represent in my 20s. The white polka dots on the red background are refreshing & whimsical. I love the additional stripes inside the mug. A perfect little surprise after you've had a few sips.

Plus it's only $15 with a lifetime Lenox Breakage Replacement Program which means that if you break it you can get a new mug for half off the retail price. Now that's pretty good considering my reputation with mugs. Eek.

What do you think of this Kate Spade mug? Are you a mug person? What's your drink of choice? :]

  2. Cute! I'm totally with you on the mug addiction. It's so hard to not buy them constantly when you can pick some up for less than $5! I'm running out of room on my coffee bar. Eek! I love the Kate Spade find! :)

  4. Love that striping detail on the inside of your mug! I'm always drinking coffee and tea (it' the only way I get through the day!) I constantly have my eye out for cool mugs...actually just bought some pretty cool ones on sale at Anthro over the holidays. I love to look on Etsy for cool mugs and ceramic items. I rarely ever buy anything because I live in Argentina, but that one day when I move to the US I'm sure I'll go crazy on Etsy stocking up on all the awesome homemade homewares, especially ceramic mugs and bowls!

    Oh, for Christmas I got one of those brewing tea cups and I LOVE it. If you like loose tea, you should check it out! http://www.amazon.com/FORLIFE-Curve-Asian-Infuser-ounces/dp/B001739RIA

  17. That is a cute mug, what a lovely gift from your mum! :)

    I don't really drink many hot drinks - it's usually so hot here in Australia, my main drink is water, ha! But I always have a cute mug at work in case I need something warm through the day.

    1. I can imagine. My mom lived in Australia for years, so perhaps she enjoys drinking tea in the slightly (although not much) cooler temperatures. :]

  21. This mug looks so incredibly lovely!
    I, too, am an absolute mug-hoarder :D I love having a big variety of mugs to choose from!
    I'd say I'm more of a tea person (and also a tea-hoarder) but I certainly don't mind a nice cup of coffee every now and then, as well :)
