Unboxing #2

Hello there!

First of all I am so sorry I haven’t posted much lately. Work has been so demanding that when I am out I don’t want to do anything that requires much brainpower, and therefore so much for reading and posting. Ever felt that way? I end up just playing silly games on my phone. *sigh* How time flies if you’re not careful with that stuff.

Anyway, last Wednesday the 21st of June was my birthday and on that same day I got my second Bookishly box. How awesome is that??

Onto the unboxing then!


Dun dun dun…

As usual, all items are of great quality.

And of course the wrapping paper… Gosh. I am still gushing about it. I am so happy they used the same one.

I cannot begin to tell you how delicious that tea is but then again I am partial to all things minty.


The little notebook and bookmark are just lovely and much too pretty to use.

Is it just me or did you also get a sort of Dorian Gray vibe from this description? I am actually curious to read this one!


Have you bought a box from Bookishly UK? If not, what are you waiting for??

My First Unboxing!

For months I have been searching for a box that has a content that appeals to me and ships to Portugal at a manageable rate. I have to tell you, it has not been an easy feat! Most don’t deliver and those that do charge an insane amount for shipping.

Well, after much browsing I found this Tea and Book Club Subscription Box on Bookishly. To be honest I didn’t really want more books – I will never go through my TBR pile in my lifetime – but I loved the idea of tea and a vintage book and stationery, which was what I really was aiming for. I just love pretty notebooks and bookmarks and whatnot.
I have to tell you, even though the box cost me more than I had wanted to spend, I couldn’t be happier.

Let the unboxing begin and prepare for some proper gushing!


Okay so I open my mailbox and ‘lo and behold, a pretty envelope sits there:

I was not expecting it to arrive this soon so I was honestly surprised.
I had no idea what the envelope would look like either, so I found all the pretty stamps adorable.
I may or may not have done a happy dance holding said pretty envelope.

Okay so I open it and inside…

I find a blue envelope with yet another pretty bookishly icon, in this case a sticker, and a gorgeous card. I mean, who even bothers with cards anymore? And I simply adored the font and colour scheme. It just made me feel happy.

Yep, I signed up for three months and so far I do not regret it.
So, what was inside the pretty blue envelope, you say?

And here is where the gushing properly began. I could not decide whether to gawk at the amazing wrap paper or the gorgeous little notebook with the clouds made of writing and the raindrops featuring music notes – sorry you can’t tell by these pictures, I shall be taking more for sure, so keep an eye on my Instagram account. It’s so pretty I am not sure I will be using it…

And what about that beautiful bookmark! I have such a thing for bookmarks and that one is just gorgeous. Again, I loved the font and the colours, it’s all just perfect. And of course, the tea. I am looking forward to trying it, hopefully tomorrow.

And, of course, the vintage book:

(Needless to say I will be keeping this wrapping paper nice and safe)

I actually didn’t know this one!

Another cute note. It’s an old one indeed!


Ok, so that’s it! Please let me know how I fared, as I am unsure how these unboxings usually go. I would appreciate any tips.

Also, if you know any other subscription boxes, mainly with cool book related stationery, please share.

Hope you have a lovely week, folks!
