Holly Journals Review October 2016

Holly Journals Review October 2016

I officially have a new favourite subscription box, and it is Holly Journals. I had never heard of this subscription prior to this review, and didn’t really know a lot about it. I didn’t have time to research it before opening the box, so I was extremely surprised to discover such cute items inside. I definitely wasn’t expecting all this cuteness. I am in love with this subscription and can’t wait to show you what I received in the October box.

Subscription Details

Holly Journals subscription options are pretty straight forward, you have one option, and that’s it. You either sign up for a monthly subscription or you don’t. I love it. You will receive your journal at the end of the month prior to the new month, this waY you are ready to start journaling as soon as the first of the month rolls around.

October Journal

Sorry for the picture overload, but I had to show you a few different views in order for you to fully appreciate how dang cute this journal is. I am obsessed! I love everything about it. How cute are the different patterns, textures, page sizes and seasonal quotes! This is hands down, the cutest journal I have ever seen.

Journal Charm

Ok, seriously, how cute is this charm? It goes with the journal perfectly. Normally I’m not a fan of charms and embellishments, but I love the way this one looks when attached to the coils.

Bonus Items – Hot Cocoa & Candy Sticks

Each month subscribers receive a bonus item. This month we received hot cocoa mix and candy sticks. The welcome card says –  “Snuggle up with your favourite fuzzy blanket and a warm cup of cocoa, take a lick from a candy stick and let your thoughts fall like the leaves….and write. Just write.”

Dark Pen – Light Pen – Graphite Pencil

I feel like they have thought of everything. Some of the pages in the journal are darks autumn colors so I love that they included a white pen. I tested out both pens and really like the way they write. I am super picky with my pens so that says a lot coming from me. I’m also very intrigued by the graphite pencil. I’ve never used one before.


Stickers and labels and paperclips….love it!


Journal Prompts

Oh my goodness, what a cute idea! I feel like I am abusing the word cute, but I just can’t help it. I’m not the best when it comes to journaling so I appreciate the fact that they include journal prompts. This little list is perfect for someone like me. I have no problem writing, but sometimes I need a little help getting started.

Holly Journals Review October 2016

Oh my goodness…..I am in LOVE with this subscription. I can’t get over how dang cute it is. I love everything about Holly Journals. I love that the journal has a theme, I love that it isn’t a book of plain old lined paper, I love that it comes with a matching charm, I love that they include pens and pencils, and I love that they create an experience – cozy blanket, cup of cocoa, sweet treat, and a night of journaling. I want to curl up and start journaling right now. Holly Journals has officially secured a spot in my top ten favourite subscription boxes list. Cutest subscription box EVER!
