Jane Austen mug.

I ordered this mug from Brookish on Etsy a little before our move. It’s become my recent favorite. Not only do I just love Jane Austen, but it is good to remind myself that HK is home now. It’s also a good reminder that it’s okay to just stay in… which is good because the Mr. and I have chronic F.O.M.O. (Fear of Missing Out) and also S.L.D. (Squeeze the Last Drop) syndromes. And it’s been pouring buckets here (hello rainy season!) so it’s a good time for hot beverages.

Here are a few other things I am loving from Brookish.

(I hope my Jane Austen loving Sister-In-Laws are not reading this post…  as they may have an idea of what they’ll find in their stockings come December.) In all seriousness, now is the perfect time to get started on stocking up for Christmas!

And while we’re on the subject of black and white mugs, this is the one I like to drink tea out of — because it’s so big! I really shouldn’t drink that much coffee. I got it with my friend Sam in NYC at Serendipity, which is the cutest tourist trap I know of! If you haven’t been, grab you favorite tween and go try their decadent frozen hot chocolate. It’s fun to have things around that you use that remind you of good times.

This is exactly what the restaurant looks like and I’m glad they included tidbits of the definition for serendipity.

If you’re not going to be in the Big Apple anytime soon, you can still buy the mug here on Amazon.

  1. My problem with buying presents for any occasion too early is that I can’t hold onto gifts that long. I’ve bought like ten things over the past few months saying I would save them for Claire’s birthday. But I always end up giving her whatever I buy the minute it comes in the door!! I came across these journals not too long ago in Denver: http://www.paperblanks.com/us/en/collections/1/filtered?collection_id=247
    I bought a few of them as gifts. You can find them on Amazon. I think they are so great and modestly priced.

  2. Haha…I read it. I love them! Although I don’t understand the “in vain I have struggled” one–is it a little notebook?

  3. Suki–The “in vain” one is a card. I think the idea is you use the card to tell the person how you are really feeling!

    Sydney–It is really hard to stockpile gifts and wait to give them, but oh, so worth it! Thanks for the Paperblanks suggestion… I’ve been looking for a cool guest book for our new place and they have some really cool ones. And I totally think their notebooks would be great stocking stuffers!

  4. Aah Natasha! I’m a little overwhelmed to get hints about the brilliant thoughts you’re already having for stocking gifts… when I’m still behind on getting your birthday present to you! You are amazing.
    They are delightful! 🙂
