We’re getting into the fall season over here, even though it’s mid September and we still have a heat advisory in Pennsylvania. Nevertheless, I know fall weather will soon be upon us. Pumpkin spice is everywhere, Halloween decorations are going up, so despite the fact that fall technically doesn’t begin for another week or so, I know the start of school really feels like the start of the fall season. And for some reason, the fall gets me in the mood to drink tea!
I managed to pick up this mug a couple of years ago at Hallmark. I love the style of all their Disney stuff. This mug has Mrs. Potts and Chip on it with the quote from Be Our Guest: “We’ve got a lot to do! Is it one lump or two?” And inside there’s even a little writing that says “For you, our guest!” Because of that I love to use this mug when guests come to visit and want a cup of tea (usually my mom).
What’s in my cup: Obviously with a mug like this I have to be drinking tea! One of my blogging friends, Nichole from CuppaGeek, was kind enough to send me a small care package including some teas for me to try! One of them was a creme brulee black tea. It smells amazing and tastes just as good. I’m sure Mrs. Potts would approve!
What I’m reading: I just finished another Disney book for my Disney book club. It’s called Poor Unfortunate Soul and it’s from a series of books about the villains telling the stories from their perspective – this one was obviously about Ursula. I was excited to read it because I enjoyed the previous books in the series (The Beast Within about the Beast from Beauty and the Beast and Fairest of All about the Evil Queen from Snow White). It makes me sad to say but I was not digging this book. It focused very little on Ursula herself and much moreso on a side story that I really didn’t care about. I’ll be posting a full review of the book eventually, but for now I’d say if the villain perspective intrigues you, read the other two books in the series but pass on this one.
What’s in your cup? And what are you reading this month?
