The most instagramable reusable coffee cups around.

I love coffee, espresso, cappuccino, latte, vanilla latte, I have them all. Coffee is my friend, I have a coffee from a coffee shop once a day, it is my little treat in the morning on the way in to work.  That means that I have used around 350 non reusable cups a year.

Although I put my coffee cup in the recycle bin it is better to have to not recycle them in the first place so recently I bought a Thermal mug from Paperchase as it was on sale and thought it is better than nothing. Now I have started looking around at all the other stylish reusable mugs that are out there.

Not only will you be helping the environment but your pocket too, most of the big chain coffee shops have discounts on their coffee if you bring in your own reusable cup. I have also noticed that they fill your cup up to the top so you get a little more coffee for your buck too.

See this article in the Telegraph to see what you can save when using a reusable cup when buying your coffee in the UK.

I had a good look around and here are my favourite and most instagramable reusable cups:

What I would really like to see is the big designer houses really making these wanted accessories, imagine a Louis Vuitton or a Gucci cup? These would be all over insta and Pinterest as the next big accessory.  I would personally also love to Stella McCartney and Victoria Beckham all over this.

Friends, Lobsters & Valentines

So on January 1st 2018 Netflix launched all 10 Seasons of Friends so you can watch every single episode back to back, so obviously some of the famous quotes will be making a come back and still doing the rounds.

I noticed in Paperchase a valentines card with “You’re my lobster” on it, and reminded me of Pheobe’s famous quote when Ross and Rachel finally got together – “He’s her lobster”.  This got me thinking about Lobsters and the trend that started last year although didn’t do aswell as pineapples, unicorns, flamingos and donuts.

It appears that this trend has continued over to 2018 along with the Cactus, Birds of paradise and Tropical prints.  I went on the hunt for Lobster merch and found all sorts of lovely products.

Here are my favourite lobster items for you to share with your loved ones this February 14th.
