Hey readers! I’m sorry for being absent on here recently…I would happily read and write and blog and blog about reading and read about blogging all day and all night, but sadly bills, responsibilities and all the boring parts of adulthood keep getting in the way! I snatch whatever time away I can, and I simply HAD to sneak some blogging time in for this particular book box, because I am so ridiculously excited about it!
Vellum is a bookish subscription box, and despite being fairly new to the world of monthly boxes, it is taking off and I am lucky enough to have the privilege of repping for them for the next couple of months! I have been following them since the beginning, and it has been so wonderful to watch them grow and prosper. The premise is simple- each month you get a bookish t-shirt, perfect for us to wear our book worm hearts on our sleeves! Along with your tee, you also get a handful of bookish goodies, all centred around that month’s theme. Sounds awesome right? The best bit is, you can get 10% off your first box with my discount code MARIE10!!
March’s theme is ‘Jane’s Kiss’ dedicated to my all time favourite book, Jane Eyre and honestly it is like it was made for me…everything is so perfect, I could just gush and gush! But, I think the best thing is probably just to tell you all about the lovely goodies I got inside, starting with that stunning Tee…
The T-shirt is so soft, and not only features one of my all time favourite quotes, but also has this gorgeous bird cage design by Ink and Wonder Designs…I will be wearing this constantly! If anything, it will be a way for me to discover kindred spirits out there. If I wear the shirt and people come up to me and tell me how they too love Jane Eyre, then I know I have made a new friend. One thing for sure is, even if I have no luck in finding fellow Bronte obsessives such as myself, I will be getting plenty of compliments about the shirt anyway based on design alone. In a nutshell…I love it!
Along with my gorgeous T-shirt, I also got a bunch of Jane Eyre themed Goodies. First up, is this stunning candle by Novelly Yours, made exclusively for this box. I wish I could attach a sniffable image, because this smells divine! I look forward to lighting it.
Next up, an adorable book of matches made by Here Forever More perfeat for lighting my lovely candle with. They basically feature a miniature version of the book, which I honestly adore and I don’t even know if I will be able to bring myself to use them, they are that sweet!
I also got Two stunning prints. The first, featuring that ever so romantic quote from the book, is a print by Bibliophile prints, which is too lovely and the second is this outstanding print and matching handheld mirror by Nastja and honestly, I am so in love. I loved this so much, I immediately looked her up online and her work is incredible…I want it all. That’s one of the great things about boxes like these, they introduce you to artists and shops you never would have discovered. I will definitely be following this artist on Instagram!
But there is more! I also got the yummiest Thornfield Kiss lip balm by From The Page so I can keep my lips soft while I chatter about books! I am a big lover of practical, pretty and bookish items such as this…You can declare you are a book worm while simultaneously tackling chapped lips! Perfect really!
So that’s the box, and can I just say WOW! I truly love every single item, and it is so obvious the amount of care and consideration that went into choosing every single one. The Vellum box is a great gift for yourself or fellow book worms and I cannot recommend it enough!
Now if you excuse me, I am going to re-read Jane Eyre while wearing my new shirt, lighting my candle with my matches, using my lip balm and mirror for application and staring at the prints which will immediately find their way onto my walls! Perfect!
