My favourite mugs

About a year ago, I moved to a new apartment and while un-packing my kitchen I was forced by my boyfriend to sort through my mug collection and cull… cull a selection of mugs that I don’t “need” or “use”. It was heartbreaking. I tried explaining that I couldn’t throw any out because I had a sentimental connection to each and every mug. I really did. Anyway.. long story short, in the space of 12 months I’ve since accumulated the same number of mugs that I threw out that night. So… HA! I will NEVER learn from my mistakes, clearly.

Okay, so I’m a mug hoarder. Not like full sets of mugs (I don’t have the cupboard space for that), just singular mugs that I’ve found and impulse purchased because I think they’re cute. Up until now, this has been fine. I have a favourite coffee mug and favourite tea mug and everything works… until it doesn’t work. My system falls APART if somebody in the house uses one of my mugs. Cue: small freak out at the thought of changing my routine. Well, times are changing. I’ve decided to upgrade to ‘Full Adult Status’ and I plan to purchase a set of mugs. Four of the same favourite mug that will be available for use whenever I please. I’m also very excited to entertain friends, offer them an earl grey and wait for the matching mug compliments to roll in *stares blankly out to space while dreaming of the day*.

You’ve probably noticed by now that when I buy anything for my apartment, a lot of thinking and planning goes into the decision. This is a practice that you will now benefit from, by way of a carefully curated selection of mugs which is officially** confirmed to be the cutest available. You will find links, brands and a beverage suggestion for all mugs below ^.^

P.S. Cute mugs need catchy tunes to accompany them so I’ve prepared a themed Spotify playlist inspired by each mug and its personality to help you browse (mugs have feelings too, Dylan).
