The Village Witch Hocus Pocus Sub Box {August}

Hey Everyone,

Today I bring you an unveiling of the Hocus Pocus Sub Box from The Village Witch. I would like to thank The TVW team for providing me this box for review.

This month’s theme was self-reflection and road opening and as always included ingredients to perform a spell, or in this case 2 spells.

Unfortunately I haven’t managed to do these yet, the summer holidays have meant I’ve had no time to myself to be able to get into the headspace and I really want to make the most of it as these spells are so perfect for this point in my life.

So here is what the sub box contained;

Treat Bag

Road Opener Aura Spray

Unlock Your Potentional Oil

Be Brave Incense

Florida Water

Self Reflection Powder

Mojo Bag Herb Mix

Red Velvet Bag

White Candle

Skull and Rose Compact Mirror

Make Your Own Crystal Necklace Kit

As Always these items are all handmade with love and care over at TVW. The Aura Spray smells like lemon polo mints (that’s if you are old enough to remember them).

This box is a great box, the theme is perfect. Heading into the colder months, children back at school and it makes for a great time to renew and refresh ourselves ready for the hectic Winter months that are approaching. September is the perfect time for fresh starts.

You can purchase the sub box here for £30 including p&p. While this is a Traditional Witch shop, the TVW Team work hard to include things in the box suitable for those who are Wiccan.

I would love to know if you subscribe to these boxes. Thanks for reading.

Since I was young I always loved labelling and when I got my first label maker I was in my element. Do you remember those old style label makers that emboss the plastic type tape?

Is it just me or did you also have the urge to go around and label everything?

It also reminds me of The Simpsons episode in which Bart Simpson goes around labelling every item in his path, oh it made me laugh because that was my childhood and a very stationary geekette moment of course.

My husband has his own printing business and I have been helping out packing and design work. I am at home as a writer so always take his packages. One evening he opened a package and turned to me and said “You will love me for this”… only to see it was an electronic label maker for the packages he sends. I could have hugged him or kissed him but I wanted to print the first label, it was an urge and all the memories had come flooding back!

I have to admit it wasn’t easy to get started and it was a lot of faff to wirelessly print. The software is basic and thats all it needs to be, it was easy to actually type up and print and thats what we wanted to do so that we sped up the packing process.

Alas my first label was printed and I whipped it off the adhesive and stuck it to my husband, I won’t repeat what was printed here but the Bart Simpson in me came out! Oh how I had so much fun, especially when I discovered the mobile phone app which is much more of a faster process then on the computer. We were covered in stickers but it was ok as it was the complimentary roll. The fun was over and we got all serious about the cost side then. I gladly offer to pack so I can use it and yes I am not ashamed to admit it.

The label printer we have is the Brother QL-810W and we bought it for around £85, it was worth the investment for this price- this was on the offer price on Amazon at the time. The non sale price is around £193 and I think we would of hesitated a little or had been a little disappointed to have to spend that amount on this device.

Like I mentioned before the installation was frustrating, in fact It took me around 40 minutes to set up both computers and two mobile phones. The software on the laptop and the process to get to print is way longer then on your mobile phone which I do find frustrating as I use the computer the most.

If you are using it for a business element, handmade or crafting then this is a good investment or the sale price as its quick to print labels from the Etsy app.

Happy labelling

Thank You Jennifer for sharing your product review with us today.
