SHORT REVIEW - There isn't much you can write about a mug!
I am a big fan of mugs that are larger than the average - I don't really see the point of a small cup of tea. I am also a big fan of Cath Kidston. On a recent visit to see family, we headed to the Guildford branch (which if you haven't been its fabulous!) and had a browse about. As I am only a student and struggling with money a little, I decided to only purchase two of the 'Stars Crush' mugs at £5 each.
I have to admit, I was quite shocked that you could buy a mug of this size. It is more like a soup bowl than a tea/coffee cup - but all the same its fabulous!
The mugs have obviously got stars on them (hence the naming) and they are really funky and vibrant. There are others like it on the market but obviously not Cath Kidston. The mug is made from China and they are quite chunky and solid which is nice as you know it won't break easily. The stars all over the cup are multi-coloured and various sizes which is cute and adds some fun to the cupboard.
They are dishwasher friendly too, so no fuss when it comes to washing them - and it does advise not to microwave the mug but I do and it is in perfect condition still. The mug holds 17oz (pushing it 18 if you fill it almost to the brim) and this is probably three times the size of your usual cup of tea!
I tend to use mine mostly when we have company or snuggling with hot chocolate or soup on a winters evening as this is when they are best. I don't use them often for a cup of tea due to the fact I normally don't have the time to finish them and don't want to waste anything.
I would have to say, they do add a quirky touch to any kitchen and they are perfect for if you are after soup or a bigger drink - but unless you have 2 cups of tea in one sitting, I'd use them rarely. I adore Cath Kidston and she has basically taken over every aspect of my house in a good way, her designs (on everything) are gorgeous and well worth the money.
Summary: hot chocolate on a winters night? yes please.
