Lucky Dip Club

Lucky dip clubLast summer I started to subscribe to the Lucky Dip Club. Every month I get a box of surprises, themed and full of little treasures.

The really surprising part of this is the fact that month after month I give away almost all of the box!

I mean this in the nicest possible way, but sometimes I just do not have a use for an ice cream tatoo…but Lil D does, oh boy she does.  A seashell necklace with my initial on it?  Not really my style, but Lil C shares that very initial- present time!  A postcard telling us to seek adventure? Well I have a friend who is feeling a little stuck at the minute.  Sharing the joy is the joy of this box. Oh and there are the necklace charms- a new one each month for me to try out.  Not being a jewellery girl has transformed into my having new and interesting necklace every month.  Though I’ve yet to find the occasion to suit the dinosaur charm…I’m sure it will happen someday.

This month, the haul seems especially promising: 3 Christmas cards, a cute print, a pink planet brooch (that will soon be attached to my  equally pink bag), a little pot of magic and a mirror.  Guess what? I have recipients for them all in mind.

Roll on December, I have people who need surprises.

Kawaii Box July 2015

RikumaThe Cutest Monthly Kawaii Subscription Box

– Yeah it is ❀(*´◡`*)❀

Like everybody else we’re obsessed with subscription boxes at the minute.  The postman has become the most popular person in our world and this week he went and brought the cutest darn box yet.

Kawaii Box is a selection of super cute hand-picked items from Japan and Korea.  Some stationery, some accessories, some sweets, lots of cute.

Kawaii Box

Now I lived in Tokyo for nearly 10 years so my cute threshold is quite high but opening the kawaii box was a trip down memory lane.  Item after item of familiar characters (Rilakkuma) and happy faces.  Some have already been earmarked for the dotes as Back to School treats but some are definitely staying with me.

MineThis month’s absolute favourite was the Alpaca keyring, closely followed by the toast coaster.  (I’m a sucker for food with faces)

Best yet, we’re signed up for another two months. Yatta!

The only drawback I can see is the wait. From shipping notification to arrival it took just over two weeks in our case. ⇒All the way from Singapore.

In terms of value, 3 months cost about £35, with free delivery.  Well worth it we say.

It certainly cutened up our day 🌞
