Recently I had a wonderful friend of mine pick up a Magic Kingdom Starbucks mug for me to gift to someone. She mentioned to me that Starbucks also had a special Christmas mug out… and the next thing you know, I’m getting a gift for myself, too! I’m lucky to have good friends who will help feed my Disney obsession 😉
The holiday Starbucks mug is adorable. It has a gingerbread castle on it. It looks just like Cinderella castle, but made out of gingerbread and with icing for snow. There are some fun red and green details to make it look extra Christmas-y. I also like the subtle snowflake design going on in the background of this white mug. And of course there’s the Starbucks logo on the back. And the mug itself is one of those taller mugs, so it’s nice to switch it up and keep my collection looking interesting!
What’s in my cup: I’m normally a coffee drinker, but December is definitely the month for hot chocolate! I’m not going to do it all the time, but I was impressed at how easy it was to make my own hot chocolate in the slow cooker using this recipe. And it tastes so much more rich than the packets!
What I’m currently reading: I got this absolutely lovely book gifted to me called Snow and Rose, by Emily Winfield Martin. I think I’ve mentioned before that I’m in a program called “Pixie Dust Pals,” which is basically like a year-long secret santa where you send someone a gift every month but don’t reveal your identity until the end. Clearly my pal this round knows me pretty well, because I love books and especially fairy tale retellings. This is a retelling of a lesser known fairy tale called “Snow White and Rose Red” (not to be confused with Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs). I’m about 1/3 of the way through and it’s very sweet so far. And the illustrations are gorgeous.
What’s in your cup right now? And what are you currently reading?
