The Village Witch Hocus Pocus Box {June}

Hey everyone.

Today I bring you an unboxing of June’s Hocus Focus Box by The Village Witch. The theme for this month was Summer Solstice and Festivals.

When this box arrived I could smell it before I even opened it. There was a gorgeous subtle citrus scent coming from it.

The contents of this box are absolutely gorgeous and so very me. The scents are all citrus which are my favourite, orange, lemon, lime, grapefruits and even a hint of coconut.

The spell that came with the box is really great and really fun, I am looking forward to doing this.

So let’s look at the contents:

  • Spell sheet instructions
  • Summer Zing Aura Spray
  • Summer Zing Ink
  • Summer Solstice Oil
  • Summer Solstice Spell Shooter
  • Summer Solstice Magical Bonfire Burning Mix
  • Summer Cleansing Salt
  • Small Dreamcatcher
  • Magnetic Polaroid Photo Frame
  • Festival Savings Tin
  • Hanging Twizzler
  • Goodie Bag

There was a new and exclusive item in this box, the spell shooter. What a fun product! I can’t wait to go into the garden and complete my spell with this witchy party popper. Even the paper in it is biodegradable.

I’ve hung the Twizzler at my back patio door for now, once I’ve finished my garden it’s going to go out there.

So far the Summer Solstice box is my absolute favourite. The quality is as good as all the other boxes and the scents are amazing. The Village Witch really pull put the stops when making these boxes. The boxes are £30 including postage and always exceed their value.

Thanks for reading.

Recent Purchases {May}

Hey everyone.

I thought I’d share with you my more recent purchases. Not all are planner related. There are some bookish items as well.

Lets start with my YourWorldOfColour orders. I ordered these beautiful spring/summer feel kits and some matching day of the week covers along with some swear word quotes. These are bright, fun and amazing quality.

Next is my first ever order from Linouspots. These are lovely watercolour stickers and didn’t cost a fortune in shipping. They arrived really quickly.

I purchased this Filofax Ranger from a destash in a group. I am now using it as a wallet/purse combo.

I ordered more inserts from Queen Mabel and Doris as mine are almost empty. I got two different weekly styles and some dotted inserts.

Now we have another destash purchase. These are fab and I couldn’t resist for the price.

Last but not least an order from Fable and Black which are one of my favourite stores for bookish goodies. I got the Rattle The Stars Throne of Glass cup and a Bad Witch badge.

Thanks for reading.

Your World of Colour PR Kit – May

Hey everyone, today I’m sharing with you my PR kit from YourWorldOfColour. I love my little packages from Carlyann, they are always full of fun and functional bits that are incredibly useful especially since I’m am more of a functional planner.

The first picture shows little Unicorns eating fries, Office desks, Coffee cups, antibiotics and trainers. These are all great for me. I normally wouldn’t use the trainers but I’m taking up running once I’m better so they will be useful then.

The next set are cleaning check lists which I use all the time and March Wacky Holidays which I will save for next year

Then last but not least the amazing Cow kit! I love this so much and cannot wait to use it:)

So that’s everything. You can see my purchases from Your World Of Colour in another post later this week.

Don’t forget you can use the following code for a discount:)

May 21st-27th Planner Decor

Hey everyone.

Today is just a quick post to share with you my weekly planner decor.

I’ve not been using a planner much over the last few months but I’ve decided to start using my gorgeous Galaxy Recollections planner to keep at home with all my stuff in.

This week I used the Unicorn Dreams kit from Your World Of Colour. I love it. It is summery and all pastels which are my fav.

As you can see the EC kits work well in other planners including horizontal ones like this.

If you fancy getting yourself this kit or any others then remember you can use my code for a discount.

Blissful Gifts and Services {Review}

Hey everyone. Today I have something a little different for you. Author Jennifer Gilmour runs a little gift business with her husband. Blissful Gifts and Services have a wide range of different things available and Jennifer approached me and asked if she could send me some items. The gifts they make also come in a variety of personalisations. 

I asked Jennifer to surprise me to which she replied asking for some photo’s. Not long after I got this gorgeous package.

The package includes a metal 2018 desk calender than can be coloured in using sharpies, some emoji fridge magnets which my toddler loves and a beautiful metal bookmark personalised with the photo’s I selected. 

The items are amazing quality and so unique. I really love the bookmark. It’s my most prized possession.

There is a link provides above to the store. I’d highly recommend checking them out. Would be perfect for Christmas gifts.

I really like the red watercolour decorative set, I haven’t used this yet but I plan to for next week.

Planner Pretties Haul

Hey, how is everyone? Well I hope. 

Today I am back with some of my recent purchases. The majority of which are stickers but well, you can never have too many of those right? 

First of all let’s look at the UglyBugPlans Watercolour Magic Journalling Kit. I’ve been eyeing this up for a little while. I’m part of Michelle’s tester group and I was lucky enough to get the Watercolour Witches sticker kit but I had to go purchase this as well. It will be perfect for the things I have planned.

Next we have a sticker order from a U.S store than I bought during a Planner Boss Collective sale and the shipping was really low. They took a while to arrive but the quality and designs are beautiful. These are from Templovescrafts

Next we have more stickers from LittleRainbowMoon. No makes the most beautiful stickers and this is by far one of my favourite shops. I bought the oppsie bag (pic 1) and I can only find a slight issue with 3 stickers on 1 sheet. Jo also sent me the beautiful Autumn set which I had lusted after for ages. 

Now we have stickers from StickyAcorn. I purchased these just before the shop went digital. They are absolutely gorgeous.

Last but by no means least we have a beautiful charm that was made by my friend Fiona from LittleDragonJewellery. This is the cutest and most gorgeous charm. I am still in awe at the patience that must be required for such small and delicate designs. That Toadstool is smaller than my little finger nail! 

So there we go. My recent purchases. I also have a couple more posts for this week as well. My PR Kit from YourWorldOfColour and a review of my Meadowgate B6 Violet TN so stay tuned.

Avon 2018 Planner Review

The other day I was browsing the online Avon catalogue while buying a dressing gown for my daughter. As if by magic there was some stationery. Matching pack of 2 notebooks for £8.50 and a planner for £6.50. I bagged this bargain planner as it looked pretty and I was still on the lookout for a desk planner for next year. 

The planner arrived and I have to say it’s well worth the low price tag.

The outside is hardback black and white stripes with gold writing, closure band and coils. It’s A5 in size.

You can just see the tabs popping out for the 3 sections within the planner. There is Diary, Addresses and Notes. The tabs are rounded which is a lovely touch and are on dotted grey and white dividers.

The inside is pretty standard. There is an introduction page, week on 2 pages, a-z addresses and lined note paper. The paper quality isn’t amazing but it isn’t bad. It’s white, not too thin but not completely smooth either. I haven’t done a pen test yet. I’ll add a link in separately when I do.

At the very back is a little wallet to slot bits in. It also comes with a Gold pen with blue ink, the pen feels quite cheap if I’m honest. There is a pen loop for it as well.

All in all this is a lovely little budget planner. The only thing it misses is a monthly overview, if it had that then I’d sing it’s praises all day long. 

Thanks for reading.

Royal Planner PR Goodies {Autumnal Love}

Autumn is in the air and as such it’s everywhere else too. In my home decor, my clothing choice and more importantly in my planners. 

I was sent this little package of autumnal gorgeousness from The Royal Planner as I am part of her PR team. 

I was blown away by the colours and images of these items. The dashboards are all beautiful as are the acetate pieces. Just look at the ephemera and paperclips as well! It’s all so perfect! That little Fox…Foxes are one of my fav animals and it’s just so wonderful.

The Royal Planner shop is currently on a temporary site until host changes have been made but you can find everything you need here and don’t forget you can use the code Emma15 for a 15% discount.

Thanks for reading.
