Linky's lovely stationery box - July '14

If you are a stationery addict like me then you might have already heard of Linky's Dream but if not then let me tell you about this fabulous online retailer.  Linky's Dream is run by a wonderful lady called Leah and she recently came up with the idea of a monthly stationery box, for people who love their pencil case more than their make up bag!  One of the nice things about the Linky Stationery Box is you don't have to sign up for multiple boxes like some monthly beauty box services.  You can choose to buy one at a time or pre order two or more it's completely up to you!

Yesterday there was a knock at my door and a courier handed me this pretty parcel.  I love that it is wrapped up in gift paper instead of a plain, regular old box!


Underneath the wrapping paper there was a couple of layers of bubble wrap to protect the box and then I was greeted with this lovely sight.  How pretty is this!  Leah takes such care when she makes these boxes up, it is like receiving a gorgeous gift instead of a stationery order.


The sticker on top of the box says "Open me I am gorgeous inside and out!" and that is so true!  Under a layer of tissue paper you will find your goodies, I love all the little extras too.  There's mini pompoms, sequins, feathers more confetti and even some sweets!  I must say there was a large lolly in here as well but my youngest daughter spotted it and asked so politely if she could have it I couldn't refuse.... and it kept her busy while I took the rest of these photos!


Some of the items are individually wrapped so I will show you the unwrapped things first.

I absolutely LOVE the green glitter washi tape, it is my favourite colour and sparkly.  I can't wait to use it in my Filofax!  The pink cupcake paperclip is very cute too.  I have seen them around in people's photos on Instagram and always liked them so this was a nice surprise.  There was also a pretty set of project life cards, a sweet butterfly sticker, a butterfly pen, a set of green and white paperclips, some sweets and an awesome pony paperclip.


I have to show you a close up of the pony, it is so cute and the little pink ribbon makes it extra special.  I just love pink and mint green colour combos!


There is a little thank you card inside the box and this has all the links to Linky's Dreams social media accounts and the website.  The envelope is filled with more bits and pieces too so I will show you those next.


A selection of sticky notes (and a business card for the Etsy shop who made the envelope.) I really like the Hello There sticky notes!


Some cute notepapers.


My Melody notepapers


Now onto the wrapped items!


The first one I opened contained this cute dream journal, handmade by Linkys. I also forgot to show you this bow deco tape so I have added it into this pic.

Kawaii page markers/sticky flags.


Dream notepaper for my Filofax and a beautiful notebook. 


A pack of pretty pockets


I love all the bits of decoration from inside and outside the box.  I have popped them all into this little bag so I can reuse them.  I've left the pompoms and feathers inside the box for now.  


The Linky Stationery Box  is £15 plus P&P which I think is great value for all the products you get and for the care and attention Leah puts into each one.  Linky's Dreams ship internationally too so anyone can buy one!  When you order a box you can choose which size planner you use from the drop down menu and you can leave a note during the checkout process to say what your favourite colours are.  You see each box is different and made with you in mind!  I love pink and green, sparkly and girly things and that is what I received.  If you check out this Mrs Brimbles post you will see her box had a bit of a bunny theme going on this month and her planner related products were A5 size whereas mine are personal size.

The July box has already sold out but there are still some boxes available for August if you want to grab one before they are gone.  I really love mine and can't wait to see what arrives next month!

  1. I have my fingers in my ears. I'm not listening, no I'm not buying a box. No I don't care what you get or how beautiful that pony clip is or how the patterned paper just looks adorable and how much would I enjoy......

    Ok, I ordered one for August. It's the holidays and it will keep me quiet.
    Besides I can blame it all on you. You made me do it, didn't you?
    They do look good x

  4. I was lusting over these boxes after seeing Mrs Brimbles fab unboxing. No pennies for anything other than esentials atm due to the puppies & the teenagers haha. But I'll definitely be ordering one day. Such a great idea. Thanks for the review Amanda- glad you're happy with all your bits n bobs. Frustratingly, I can only see 3 of your photos- not sure why ? xx

    1. Thanks PurpleDolly1 :) I love watching Mrs Brimbles unboxing videos for these too, I feel her excitement as she opens each package!
      Sorry you're having trouble seeing the photos, I've checked on two different browsers and I can see them all ok. Maybe Blogger is having an issue x
