Ink Drops Monthly Review – November

images

As you all know a while a few a subscribed to a monthly make up/beauty box and have loved it so I decided to sign up for another but this time one that provided stationary.  Now this one is more expensive coming in at £15.95 a month including postage but as I am counting it as one of the treats for stopping smoking then I don’t feel guilty, both boxes together come to less than I would have spent in one week on cigarettes.  I received my first pack last month but my daughter was here and grabbed a couple of bits before I got chance to actually take photos for a post.

So in this months box….

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFirst think you will notice is it is not a box, rather it comes in a paper bag but you do get a lovely little hand written note from the lovely ladies who run the company, a personal touch which does make you smile.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFirst item I pulled out is this Memo Book by Silvine, not a very high monetary value but handy never the less, next up…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA3 Eco friendly paper pencils by Ecobridge again not high monetary value but I have to be honest that is really not the attraction of theis subscription, the appeal is receiving things such as these that I probably would never have looked for and different things such as this next notebook….

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI put the ruler next to it to show how tiny this is it is lovely and has a cord to wrap round it to keep it closed, it is designed as being perfect to fit in handbags but I would personally not use it for this because of the glitter and the fact glitter gets everywhere lol.

The final items in this months bag…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is the real reason I signed up to Ink Drops, the cards, notelets and postcards.  This batch of 6 postcards are all mimicking polaroid photos and glory in the Summer the perfect pick me up when it is raining outside.  I love writing to people, I know from those who have received letters how much they enjoy them, and knowing you give joy is a very fulfilling feeling.

I would not recommend this subscription to anyone looking to receive amazing value for money because if I add up the cost of everything I probably break even, but if you love writing letters, like notebooks and like trying new pens then consider giving it a go, I am going off now to write a letter to my Great Uncle and I may just add a P.S on a postcard.

  1. What a lucky Great-Uncle since so few people actually write letters these days. I know I rarely do. I’m a stationery freak but am happy to say there’s nothing too tempting for me in your group. Glitter in my pocket would drive me batty ( a very short journey). Enjoy your little treats.
