I’ve fallen in love, and like all great love affairs, it happened quite accidentally. A few months ago I was in TK Maxx with some friends and happened upon a mug I couldn’t quite pass up. Did I need another mug? No. I already couldn’t close the cupboard. Could I leave this mug? Absolutely not. I seem to remember making quite the fuss, holding it up to my friends thinking they too would coo and make a huge deal about it, but their faces, although approving, didn’t quite match up to the dance party inside my chest at the sight of this mug. I don’t know what it is, but I adore it, and I’ve been drinking out of it every day since I laid eyes on it. I love the way it looks, the colour scheme, even the thickness of the mug itself. I can’t be the only one who thinks about the little details, right?
I took note of the brand, and made a mental promise to look them up, but we all now how it is – life, and plans to rewatch episodes of Honey Boo Boo get in the way. As most of you know Matt works at Waterstones in the head office, and they often have sample sales. I love sample sale days because he comes home with a veritable treasure chest of treats, including this Star Wars cookbook with Ice Saber moulds. As he pulled things out of his bag, I saw a few cute notebooks (including a Petit Prince 2014 journal that almost makes me wish the months away) but my eyes immediately shot to these cute initial notebooks, one for each of us. Made from recycled paper, I loved everything about them, and flipped them over to reveal a familiar logo.
Unintentionally we had both picked something out by Magpie and after stalking their website, my wishlist is as longer than the Nile. In fact I may or may not have picked up the same mug in the inverted colour scheme, another one and an espresso set. I’m obsessed! I’m sure I will be getting many more things from them, be warned, you might also fall in love.
