Win a super pretty personalised mug from The Mug Company

Lorsque j’ai posé mes valises en Angleterre, je n’avais pas un seul mug. J’en ai aujourd’hui 5 étagères pleines. 5! Incroyable. Et pourtant je les aime, toutes. Ils me suivent depuis des années, évoquent un lieu, un évènement, un livre parfois. D’autres m’ont été offerts par des amis qui me tiennent à coeur. Mon premier sourire du matin, mon premier café – c’est eux. A chaque humeur son mug.When I put my suitcases down in England for good, I did not own any mugs at all. Not a single one. Now? I have 5 shelves full. Unbelievable! And I do like them all. Really. I chose them carefully to remind of a place, an event, a book sometimes. A good novel calls for a magnificent cup. Others were given to me by people dear to my heart. I have a simple narrow white one I wouldn’t give away for the whole world, simply because it has its little story. They are my first smile in the morning, my first stop for coffee. Depending on my mood, I will select one or the other.

Au bureau, c’est aussi une façon discrète de mettre en avant sa personnalité, sobre ou rigolote. Rien ne place tant qu’un tailleur strict avec une tasse affichant un peu d’esprit, un peu d’humour décalé… et une façon toute simple d’entamer la conversation avec de parfaits inconnus.At the office too, they’re crucial. A discreet way to show your personality, serious or fun. Nothing breaks the ice better than a formal suit with a witty mug. Best way to start a conversation with a total stranger!

Vous êtes accroc, vous aussi? Jetez donc un coup d’œil à la fascinante collection The Mug Company. J’ai bien passé 20 minutes hier soir, à me régaler des modèles… Avec un coup de cœur pour la Ha Ha Ha Ha, dont la joie de vivre est simplement contagieuse. Ou la Geek Chic, mon nouveau motto. Mais aussi des designs Quentin Blake / Roald Dahl, botaniques, illustrations autour de Shakespeare, Dickens, Jane Austen… Extra. Je les veux toutes. Il me faut juste une sixième étagère.Are you hooked too? Have a look at the quite fascinating range by The Mug Company. I spent a good 20 minutes trying to pick just one. I still can’t. My heart still hesitates between the Ha Ha Ha Ha (contagious cheerfulness!) and the Geek Chic, my new motto. Or maybe a Quentin Blake / Roald Dahl? But still the Shakespeare, Dickens, Jane Austen are original. And the You are my Cup of Tea so fitting…

The Mug Company vous permet de gagner le mug de votre choix sur leur site, assorti d’un mini-paquet de thé Teapigs. Le petit plus? Vous pourrez le personnaliser d’une phrase, sur l’anse…Fancy one? You can win the mug of your choice within The Mug Company collection, together with a mini-pack of Teapigs tea. Even better, they will personalise it with your preferred message on the handle. YOUR mug. For real.

Comment jouer? Indiquez-nous juste ci-dessous le design qui vous fait craquer sur The Mug Company et pourquoi. Il vous faut, par contre, avoir une adresse sur l’Angleterre. Le gagnant sera tiré au sort dimanche 21 septembre à 20h00. A vos claviers!How to play? Just tell us in the comments below which design you prefer on their website and why. You need to have a UK address. A winner will be selected at random on September 21 (this Sunday) at 8pm. Good luck!

    I love the Kings and Queens china mug, because not only is it great to look at, bright, colourful, but its educational as well on a sub-concious level, as you drink your beverage who could help but look at the design and the kings and queens in order and its information that will seep into your sub-concious, meaning you have learned a little more about british history.
