The Paper Club Subscription Box | Winter Gardens | Unboxing Review | June Box

Hi everyone

I just received my June stationery box from the Paper Club. I thought I’d share with you what I got in this month’s box. This month’s theme was a floral winter garden theme. On the card, it said ‘Bringing joy with flowers’ on the front and then on the back it describes what the theme is about.

‘The bright floral designs evoke the wisdom of nature. A flower doesn’t force itself to open but must simply wait to bloom. When we plant a garden, we know the flowers will take time to grow and through these actions we show our belief in a better future and a more beautiful world’ (The Paper Club 2021).

I like the theme of this box. You expect the theme for a winter box to be dark colours but the colours of the theme is a mixture of bright and dark. It has a blue, red, yellow and gold theme with a hint of green. The design somehow all works well together as one.

The box includes:

1 x rose gold ruler
2 x gel pens
1 x letter writing set
2 x greeting cards
1 x gift tags
1 x wrapping paper

The box is encouraging you to take time to make time. It says ‘get cosy and create something special with the gorgeous pens, nurturing within yourself the seeds for a luscious life’. I love the rose gold ruler, gel pens, the letter writing set and the wrapping paper. I will definitely use those. I love collecting greeting cards so I will add those to my collection. I am not a huge fan of the design of the gift tags, letter writing set and the greeting cards of the red flowers. I prefer the simpler designs like of the wrapping paper and the other greeting card but it’s still a gorgeous box and I love how it encourages you to write. Overall, I rate this box 4 out of 5 stars. I can tell a lot of effort has been put into it with their own packaging and designs. It still makes me excited for the next box!

Self Love Book Club | Good Vibes, Good Life by Vex King | Book Review

Hi all

So I just finished this book called Good Vibes, Good Life by Vex King. It was funny how I stumbled across it as I had first seen it on Pinterest and thought that the cover was a really nice print. I did not know that it was an actual book until I saw it at a book shop and so I thought it must be fate! I just had to get it so I bought the book from QBD book shop.

It was the first book that got me out of the slump I was in. I had not picked up a book in ages and I wanted to get back into reading again. I was hooked by Vex’s words and wisdom from the start to finish. I really enjoyed his writing and he gives good advice throughout the book. He gives you past experiences and stories so can understand the topic better and some of it is quite relatable. The text is simple sans serif but the quotes are a contrast to the body of the text as they are in a serif font and in a bigger size that are scattered throughout the book. The headings are in bold and in a sans serif font that makes it easier to follow. The colour theme of this book is nice and simple with a gold and white cover. I don’t know much about Vex King but I know he was a music producer that turned into a mindful coach and became popular through Instagram. You can check out his instagram here: @vexking.

There’s seven parts or headings to this book, which are:

  • Part One: A Matter of Vibes
  • Part Two: Positive Lifestyle Habits
  • Part Three: Make Yourself a Priority
  • Part Four: Accepting Yourself
  • Part Five: Manifesting Goals: Mind Work
  • Part Six: Taking Goals, Mind Action
  • Part Seven: Pain and Purpose

If any of these headings struck a chord in you then this is the book for you!

The ending felt a bit rushed in my opinion as the chapters weren’t so long compared to the others but other than that it was a really good book and I highly recommend it to people who love self help books just as much as I do. I felt like I really needed this book whilst I was reading it and it has helped me think about things a lot! It’s put things in perspective for me. I rate this book 4.5 out of 5 stars. If you have read it, what did you think of it?

I decided to start a self love book club because I love reading self help books and I want others to feel inspired too. So this week I recommend reading Good Vibes, Good life by Vex King. Let me know what you learnt from this book and how it has changed you. I will probably do this every month to give you time to finish the book and to let me know what the thoughts are. I don’t know it’s just an idea. I may just recommend books to you and you can just read it in your own time with no pressure. Actually, I think that’s better. I will do it weekly every Thursday and you can add it to your list of books to read and read it in your own time.

Happy reading!

Love Nat xx

The Paper Club Subscription Box | For All the Stationery Lovers Out There | May Box

Hi all

What better to write a blog than to write it on a Thursday morning. It’s my day off today but I have class later in the evening. I had a productive morning as I am still keeping up with the Miracle Morning challenge as well as doing some admin stuff.

Today, I wanted to write about this stationery subscription box called the Paper Club. It’s a monthly subscription box where you receive stationery products with a different theme each month. I first discovered it through an Instagram ad or was it a Facebook ad? I can’t remember but I discovered on social media and it’s definitely my sort of subscription box as I am a stationery lover. You can check out my stationery account on IG: @natsmyplanner

You can view their past subscription boxes on their website and also sometimes they have limited edition collection boxes, for example, they had one for Mother’s Day.. They shipped the May box on the 7 May and it arrived a few days later so it was quick delivery. It comes in an A4 cardboard envelope box with their labels on the front and back with their socials. Inside the box it is wrapped in orange tissue paper but I am guessing their would be different coloured tissue paper each month.

I was surprised by the quality of the stationery products in the box. It felt like my birthday! The theme for this month was called the Bright Side. It’s about feeling inspired to create hobbies and to treat yourself. It was a lovely box to start off with. I really loved the illustrations on all the stationery products and it didn’t feel cheap. It felt like high-end quality products that designers have put a lot of thought into their products and I loved it! It makes me want to keep subscribing to their monthly subscription box. It is $19.95 a month so it’s not very expensive and it’s worth the money if you are a lover of stationery like I am. You can cancel at any time and there’s no obligation fee.

So here’s what is inside the box for May:

A4 Prints
Greeting Cards
Bullet Journalling Kit

It’s run by an Australian company called Candle Bark Creations and based in Sydney Australia. Each box has 5+ items worth over $50 of cool stationery products. And to top it off each box sold by The Paper Club will go towards Oz Harvest, which feeds the homeless. This means that 1 box will feed 2 meals. Isn’t that great? It makes you feel good too. So check out the Paper Club box and let me know what you think in the comments below! I will do an unboxing post for each subscription box I get each month so stay tuned!
