Holly Journals Review May 2017

Holly Journals is a Stationery Subscription Box for monthly themed, unique, handmade journals with other coordinating treasures to inspire and encourage your journaling adventures! They kindly sent us this box for review.

Wanderlust: A strong desire to travel

Whether you use this journal to log your past excursions, this year’s summer vacation, or save it for a trip of a lifetime, I hope you have fun with it.  Possibly it will inspire you to take the scenic route or maybe just a different road home.

This box blows my mind!  I can’t believe the care and detail that goes into making these journals.  You can really feel the love and passion that goes into the design, colour scheme, and items chosen to pad out the journal to really create a unique journaling experience.  This box really speaks to my inner travel bug!  I have felt that this year won’t hold any major trips for me, as I’ve had three large trips over the past three years.  I’ve felt more to stay close to home this year, but that doesn’t mean this year won’t be full of adventures!

Holly Journals has provided a cute travel sized tin of Altoids as a bonus gift this month!  Holly must know the importance of mints while traveling!  There is nothing like bad breath after a long flight.  This is the perfect tiny travel tin too!

Here is a quick glance at our other bonus items!  A pen, gel roller and small pencil.  An envelope of stickers and stamps, journal chain and necklace!

This could not have been better designed for me if I had picked out these items myself!  I am an avid photographer when I travel and took over 4,000 photos when I went to Kenya!  I’ve taken no less than 2,000 photos on any one of the other trips I’ve taken.  I feel I will need to choose a place to put this where I will see it daily.  I feel it’s a little too delicate for a key chain, but need somewhere equally as daily to put it.

Wow!  Love this!  Did Holly know we are located in Kelowna?  Probably.  Did anyone else receive their home town on their pendant?!  So cool.  Such attention to detail.  You know, traveling is amazing and I would jump on a plane tomorrow if someone gave me a few grand to spend at my will, but I have always loved and longed to come home!  This is the perfect piece to take traveling with you to remind you that home is always the best place to be!

A collection of stickers has also been provided.  It’s nice to have few pieces to decorate your journal as you go!  Side note, I discovered a few more stamps and clips when I was writing this post that missed the photography stage!  Sorry about that.

Now for the main event!  The journal.

Gorgeous!  I already love everything about this!

I still feel in awe over how beautiful these journals are!  They are almost too pretty to use, but at the same time it would be a travesty to not use them.  I feel like I need to plan a special trip for this journal.  It’s really a treasure.

Here is a deep look at the pages inside and how it is crafted.

Holly Journals May 2017 – Final Thoughts

Anything I say just won’t do this subscription justice. It really is meant to be experienced yourself. If you don’t travel, you may want to start just so you can use this beauty!  I actually feel I will use this journal less for a big trip and more for small road trips, morning journaling while camping or to pass time while road tripping.  I feel those are more the types of trips I’m in for in the near future and this journal will be a perfect way to document them.  If you haven’t purchased a Holly Journals yet you really need to give it a try, even just for one month.  This subscription also makes a beautiful and unmatchable gift for a loved one!
