MAMA LOVES – VITTORIA FASHION TAKEAWAY CUPS
I don’t know what it is about having a cardboard takeaway coffee cup in my hand that makes me feel just that little bit cool (of course I’m not cool, far from it, I just like to pretend I am every now and again)!
I’m not sure if it’s the fact that I feel like I am a part of a secret society of grown-up coffee lovers or if I just like the excitement of it representing that I am out and about in the world today.
Either way I have a little obsession with ordering a takeaway coffee. Even when I am dining in at the coffee shop, I still like the convenience of a takeaway cup.
So, naturally, when I saw these babies I got so tickled pink I just had to buy them! I didn’t necessarily need them but, hey, don’t we deserve to treat ourselves to some cute buys sometimes?
This particular box comes with a pack of 10 different beautifully designed limited edition paper cups with plastic lids for just $5 from Woolworths.
From flamingoes and jungle animals to sunsets and feathers, they are all absolutely gorgeous! And I’ve since found out there are stacks more designs to choose from and collect!
Here’s what I’ve learned since discovering these gorgeous coffee carriers; they are called The Summer Fashion Series by Vittoria Coffee who has partnered with four Australian designers for a collection of limited edition designer takeaway cups.
The four designers are internationally-renowned fashion brand Ellery, designer swimwear brand We Are Handsome, emerging menswear brand Insted We Smile and recently launched fashion label We Are Kindred.
The series features seasonal prints from each of the designer’s summer 2014 collections. The eight cup designs include an exclusive print by Ellery, jungle prints by We Are Handsome, an anchor print by Insted We Smile, and a floral design by We Are Kindred.
I’ve even researched some cool ways to recycle and reuse the cups such as using them for craft, storing pencils or planting succulents. Even better!
So my plan is this; in the mornings I will make a cup of coffee at home using these, pop the lid on and head out into the big wide world (school drop off, supermarket, work, friend’s place, daycare, playgroup) looking absolutely fabulously funky, as though I had all the time in the world to stop off at a cool cafe and grab a latte. I. Am. Cool. The. Cup. Says. So.
If only I could just bring myself to start using them because even the box they come in is pretty, I don’t want to dirty them!
