This month’s Lucky Dip Club was a riot of exotic birdies and colour. This subscription service continues to go from strength to strength, now with monthly guest contributors and the introduction of a charm club. A club within a club, I love it! It’s £15 a month and goes on sale at 7am on the 1st of each month.
The guest contributor for March was Hollie Harris who designed super cute 70s style bird hair slides. I’ve seen people on Instagram rocking these in purple, blue, red, brunette, blonde hair and they all look fab!
Yey! Stationery! I love this summery to-do list. I like the very eighties design too.
The charm of the month is a classy silver swan. It came on a necklace chain with the bracelet separate so that you could wear it while you build up the charm collection. I thought this was a really sweet gesture and didn’t expect a necklace too.
We also received a personalised Pink Flamingo Motel keyring. I saw @littlestlass on Instagram had turned hers into a necklace and I just had to copy!
Lastly we got to get our paper craft on with an origami set. I made the flying bird from the instructions supplied plus a swan and a rather dumpy looking penguin. So much fun!
The next box is themed around April showers with the theme of “Raining Cats and Dogs” and features the amazing Gemma Correll. Cannot wait for it!
I do love Lucky Dip Club days. As you most likely already know the score with them now I’ll just skip straight to the contents.
As February is the month of love (Valentine’s Day being slap bang in the middle and all), the theme was “Love Hearts and Lipstick”. The collaboration was with LaLaLand so featured a personalised pencil from PopCult Pencils. It also included a glittery pout badge, washi tape with sweet slogans, a love letter necklace and a patch DIY kit.
The necklace is so dainty and pretty!
I made some nautical themed patches with the DIY kit. Not perfect but I like them. I’m enjoying doing some basic sewing so I might try and get some more practice in and learn a few more techniques.
‘Til next month, S.W.A.L.K!
Hey! So you know the deal with Lucky Dip Club by now right? A monthly subscription service delivering cute paper goods, DIY kits, jewellery and personalised items through your letterbox to put a huge smile on your face. The February box launched at 7am on Sunday 1st and sold out within an hour. Wowzers! So think of this post as your super advance warning for March. Set your alarms now if you want to join the club.
Anyway, the January box was themed “Valley of the Unicorns” with the slogan “Dream Big” (great advice from the creator Leona who has certainly been successful in pursuing her dreams). It was packed with pastel-unicorn-magical-goodness.
A new feature for 2015 is a monthly collaboration with a maker – this month was I Love Crafty who made us a super cute pink iridescent unicorn brooch. I love this new development as I’m sure I’ll be introduced to lots of great new indie makers throughout the year and possibly gain a few new favourites.
Lucky Dip Club never fails to make me smile, and it’s certainly upping my stationery collection – deffo a good thing! Roll on next month :)
I just wanted to share a super quick post today to show you what I got in my Lucky Dip box for November and also to show you the Lucky Dip Cat Club for all you fellow crazy cat ladies out there.
First up, the theme of the November box was the Circus and Leona went down the harlequin and candyfloss inspired route rather than the terrifying Twisty the Clown option. This month the box was laden with stationery goods – cue a very happy me. It included a thank you card, wrapping paper, note paper, postcards, washi tape, DIY gift tags and a keyring. As a thank you to the first 300 subscribers, I also received a really pretty Chinese paper fan.
I particularly love the card and the personalised keyring and the washi tape that features some of the slogans from previous boxes.
Next, we have the Lucky Dip Cat Club box. This is something that will be available quarterly but follows the same idea as the main box – except it’s all cat themed. It was £15 and come packaged in the same way to neatly fit through your letterbox. I missed the first one, but when I found out that the second one was done in collaboration with Hello Harriet, I knew I had to sign up ASAP. As you can see, Harriet designed a super cute kitten to feature on the Lucky Dip boxes – a cheery kitty mid celebration with his party hat on. The items we received were a card (I’ve already earmarked this for someone’s birthday), a wooden badge and a tote bag.
I love Hello Harriet’s delicate style of illustration and I can’t wait to wear this little guy out. It’s extra special knowing it was a limited edition for Lucky Dip folks only.
Sadly, I’ve had to unsub from Lucky Dip Club for a while (a house move necessitating the need to be boringly careful with the pennies) so I’ll be taking to Instagram to jealously pour over the December boxes. I’ve said it before, but Lucky Dip Club is my favourite of all the subscription boxes and I’m sure I’ll be signing up for it again soon. If you want to sign up, head over to the website to find out how here.
Diner days were happy days in last month’s Lucky Dip Club. If you’re not familiar, Lucky Dip Club is a monthly subscription service priced at £15 per month. It includes a jewellery piece, a DIY kit and a personalised item as well as a selection from homewares, stationery and other fun items. It’s always wonderfully presented and a joy to open. Every month has a new theme so let’s have a look at what was in the Lucky Diner box:
The star of the box was the donut, a gorgeous gold necklace. This is a new material for Lucky Dip Club and a really lovely addition. A classy donut, right?
This is a magnet and is to be used for sticking takeaway menus to your fridge. I love this idea so much. Unfortunately my fridge is behind a cupboard door so not magnetised but I’m keeping a hold of this for when I do have a nicer fridge.
Super cute paper straws. I love a cutesy accessory in my drink so I’m happy with these. Love the colour combination too.
The DIY this month is a paper craft where you make your own burger buddy. It’s essentially 3 little boxes that look like a cheery burger.
How awesome is this ice cream sundae tea towel? I’m always up for a homeware piece and this will jazz up the boring task of drying the dishes. But it might force me to eat ice cream as soon as I’m finished…
For October we got a wee extra for Halloween in the form of a black cat button. I know that there is two schools of thought when it comes to black cats but I fall on the side of them being lucky so fingers crossed this will bring me some good luck! The menu card was also really cool this month with a roller skating waitress.
This was another good month. Sadly, I think I’m going to have to dip out of Lucky Dip Club soon as I need to cut back on my spending. Maybe just a couple more…
Welcome to another Lucky Dip Club unboxing. I hope you’re still enjoying seeing the boxes as much as I enjoy receiving them. The theme for September was ‘Magic Forest’ featuring woodland creatures and the phrase ‘Make Magic!’
The box arrived at the end of September and instantly made me feel festive for the upcoming Halloween season with the orange themed wrapping and owl motifs – hey, owls are spooky OK?!
The first item I noticed was this really cute bird art card. I love birds, and especially the swallows in the middle there, take me to a place with swallows or swifts swooping and diving and I’ll be happy for hours. I’m going to pop this up on my picture shelf to make my bedroom that little bit more autumnal.
This is a little mini to-do list note pad. I quite like that it’s so small as it keeps your to-do list succinct and manageable and I’m all for that – my one at work is usually two sides of A4. Sad face indeed!
A customised initial wooden owl badge. I love his little googly eye and the fact that he’s waving at you. Also love the colour combo. He’ll be going on my winter coat.
Eee! This is a wooden jewellery hook. The ribbon is from the packaging that it was beautifully wrapped in but forgot to take a snap of. I love the little fawn – he looks so sad though! I’m going to hang this guy on the side of my beauty cabinet and hang a few necklaces on him. I’m guilty of not wearing jewellery because I can’t see it as it’s tucked away in a drawer so this is great for me.
The DIY kit this month is a super sweet fox sleep mask. Sadly, my demanding kitten has ensure that I definitely don’t have time to make this just now, but I will share it when I do get round to it. I have seen a few completed masks by other subscribers on Instagram (#luckydipclub) and it looks really cute and seems as though the clear instructions make it easy to make and achieve the desired result.
This is the menu card but I had to share it as it’s a bit adorable. Leona also includes a little competition with every box, so this month was certain jigsaw pieces would win and extra prize. I think this is a really nice touch, and not something you see in other subscription boxes. I think it also shows that Lucky Dip Club is all about the customers and spreading a little joy.
Lucky Dip Club boxes go on sale at 7am on the first of every month and the theme for October is ‘Lucky Diner’ – burgers, milkshakes and donuts – yum!. They sell out within a few hours so if you’d like to join the club, make sure you act fast. There will also be a Lucky Dip Cat Club box next month in partnership with Hello Harriet! I can’t wait for this one.
I honestly can’t declare my love for the Lucky Dip Club subscription service enough. This letterbox-friendly parcel of surprise goodies brightens up my month every time. This months theme was “Ice Cream Parlour” and we were promised sweet treats and the ultimate summer name necklace. As usual, the packaging give you a clue to the contents, this time a positive “Think Happy” mantra and sprinkles.
Sneak peak! Again, you can see that Leona puts a lot of thought into the packaging. I love the doily decoration – very traditional ice cream shoppe appropriate!
It’s the promised summer necklace. I love that the name is subtle on this one, incorporated into the wafer cone. I’ve been wearing this a few times already. I also had to include the bag in the photo as it’s just so cute.
Perfect pastel metal pin badge. Even the cherry on top looks happy to be sitting on this sundae mountain.
Stationery! Always exciting in my book! The notebook is unlined so perfect for doodling happy thoughts and the cover has a nice matte finish. The addition of the pencil is a nice touch too.
Sundae Girl pouch. This is the perfect size for either a makeup bag or a pencil case. I think I’ll be using mine for makeup as I always seem to have a few bits rolling about in my handbag these days.
This month’s DIY kit is ice cream buttons and ribbon to accessorise the Sundae Girl pouch with. I think I’ll make the ribbon into a pull for the zip but save the buttons for a cardi or something. They’d look cute jazzing up a candy coloured top.
And that’s it all. A pretty wonderful box once again. Next month’s theme is “Magic Forest”. Oooh… I’m imagining fawns, toadstools and hodgehegs (yes, that is how I spell it). Come and join me in the Luck Dip Club addiction – sign ups open 1st September here.
