“My Mug and I” with Dana!

This week, we have the lovely Dana from Carry On Beautiful – she is such a cutie! My favourite post is her recipe for No Butter Walnut Cookies because DUH COOKIES! She blogs about a wide range of things – you really must check her out. She is fab.

Here we go!

Hey! Who are you and where do you come from?
I’m Dana and I’m from Birkenhead, near Liverpool!

How long have you had your favourite mug?
A good 4 years now! I got it while i was still in high school and I’ve had a drink in it almost every day since!!

Where did it come from?
A charity shop actually! My mum found it and surprised me one day after school.

Why this one?
For one, I love Lord of the Rings. It’s also got a slightly different handle to most mugs and it fits my hand perfectly. It’s like a mug made in heaven.

Does it really make your drink taste better?
YES. Definitely. I joke that its like an Asian tea pot because they pour tea over them until it sinks into it and that’s essentially what’s happened to this cup. Even when its clean the inside looks a little funky.

What is your favourite thing to have in your mug?
Good old fashioned English breakfast tea! Well, PG tips. I’m not a tea expert but that’s breakfast tea right? I have no idea.

When do you have your first cuppa?
Usually when i first wake up at 8ish and then every hour or so.

How many hot drinks do you have per day?
If i spend the day at home maybe between 6 and 10. If I’m out for most of the day probably only 2 or 3.

What is your favourite thing to do whilst with your mug?
I love to have a cup of tea in it while i read or watch TV. I don’t use it if I’m watching Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit though because my boyfriend laughs at me.

Anything else?
I just want you to know that my mug is hands down the best mug in the world.

A big thank you to Dana for taking part!
