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….
First 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.
First item I pulled out is this Memo Book by Silvine, not a very high monetary value but handy never the less, next up…
3 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….
I 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… This 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.
One thought on “Ink Drops Monthly Review – November”
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.
