A Very Mystical Lucky Dip Club Subscription Box

There’s nothing nicer than coming home from a long day at work to discover a colourful Lucky Dip Club subscription box laying on my doormat – the fun enamel pin and funky matching socks never fail to brighten my day.

As the spooky-season is now upon us I have been eagerly awaiting and anticipating this months box, quietly hoping to myself that it would pay homage to Halloween.

Spoiler alert: it did not disappoint!

Lucky Dip Club Subscription Box | April

Every month I look forward to opening my Lucky Dip Club subscription box; filled with a fun printed pair of socks, enamel pin and mini zine it really does brighten my day.

Naturally I was eagerly anticipating the April box, but when it arrived I was absolutely blown away by how perfect it was – and very befitting of the season ahead. The plant/grow theme is my favourite by far and I can’t wait to show you everything that’s inside this ‘gram-worthy box.

Unboxing (November’s) Fun And Festive Lucky Dip Club Subscription Box

December is finally upon us and now is the time to celebrate (and blog about) all things festive. Never mind that we put our tree up in November or that I have been merrily drinking Snowballs for the past week. December makes it all official and I can finally shake my baubles and shimmy my tinsel without fear of recrimination from the ‘it’s not December yet, what on Earth do you think you’re doing?!’ crew (Grinches.)

So with that little spiel out of the way, let’s move on to something super merry; November’s Lucky Dip Club combo box!

Lucky Dip Club Box Review

I have been following Leona and her Lucky Dip Club journey over on the ‘gram for a couple of years now – always eagerly awaiting the hashtag to peruse what fun goodies everyone received in the post. I always wanted to get a box, but I was waiting for just the right one – plus I’ve not been very good at keeping track of the time/date and they sell out pretty quickly!

Anyway, when Leona announced the April box as being Breakfast themed I knew it was time I jumped on the wagon. Setting my alarm I finally snapped up a box! As I’ve mentioned, this is my first ever LDC box – I really couldn’t be happier with it!

For those not familiar with LDC, it is a subscription service that sends you a box set to a theme every month. You can also purchase a one off box like I did. Themes in the past have included Cats and Cocktails, Biscuits, Slumber party and so much more. In the box you can expect to receive a bunch of goodies (sometimes personalised) that have been collaborated on by some seriously cool illustrators, artists and creators. This is usually jewellery, pin badges, pieces of art, stationary etc and of course, a copy of the inspiring mag Girl Planet which has lots of tips and insight in to the worlds of various creatives.

Back to the April box. As I mentioned earlier the theme was ‘breakfast’ and the artists that collaborated on it were @belsartworld@tinytreatboutique and @themakearcade whom I urge you all to go and check out!

So, what did I receive in my box?

Upon opening the box I could see everything was neatly packaged and wrapped – this element really makes the box feel like a gift which is super exciting. Yay for nice packaging!

As you can see the box was pretty full! I’ll go in to detail about each individual piece.

In terms of jewellery this box came with a cute Tiny Treat Boutique milk bottle necklace and an amazing cereal pin! This adorable bowl of Yay has been on my coat lapel all week, next to my trusty beans and goldfinch pins. Personally the pin is one of my favourite bits of the box!

Another favourite in the box was this super-cute fried egg brooch kit from The Make Arcade! I was REALLY hoping that egg would feature, so I pretty much lost it when I discovered this friendly little guy inside. The kit comes with step-by-step instructions and everything you’ll need to create the brooch including felt, safety eyes, thread, a needle and  brooch pin. I haven’t made my egg yet but I’ll be giving it a go shortly and fingers crossed my sewing skills won’t let me down!

Another thing I adored was this amazing tea towel complete with breakfast truck illustration – the stuff dreams are made of! I think this is FAR too nice to dry my dishes with though so I am thinking about framing it. It really is lovely and feels very good quality.

And then of course a lovely little print of the breakfast truck for my wall and a copy of Girl Planet!

As you can see the magazine is packed full of fun features – this will be especially interesting to you if like me you are a big fan of Etsy! This page shows Kim Lawler of Finest Imaginary – another to follow on the gram if you’re a fan of handmade and unique jewellery.

So as you can see, the box was definitely worth it! It cost £20 as a one off box with free P&P (I believe P&P is £5 internationally but don’t quote me on that!) I was so impressed with this box that I set my alarm to go off for seven o’clock this morning to grab the May ‘Flower Market’ box! I can’t wait to receive that as I’m a self-confessed cacti lady and lover  of all things floral! If you’re thinking about getting a box I urge you to go for it – you won’t regret it. It’s so fun to receive a monthly box of goodies through your door and in doing so you’re helping to support some really cool gals. What’s not to love about that?! Hoo-rah!
