Ok, so here's some honesty. I just wrote a 7 paragraph long opener about this post and, then, deleted it because who wants to read 7 paragraphs before they get to the unboxing in a subscription box post. So intro coming up, which contains a money off code and a more brief explanation.
I am absolutely thrilled to be able to introduce you to the brand new, very shiny 'Crime On The Pages' subscription box (July is their first ever box) as I've been hoping for a UK based book subscription box for so so long and was so happy to see one arrive. So much so that I subscribed instantly because I was far too excited and wanted to make sure I got the first box. At a later date, though, I saw that they were looking for a rep and I just had to apply, though thought I had no chance, but what do I know! I paid for this box but as of next month I am the official rep for this fabulous start up brand, and I couldn't be happier.
If you decide to subscribe then you can use the code PETITMOI (until 28th September 2016) to get 5% off your first box/order. Each box will contain a new release crime or thriller novel along with at least two booky bits, as you'll see the box for July was fantastic and very imaginative. There's no spoilers because each month is paid for in advance, so if you subscribe before the 28th July then you'll get August's box, but from 29th July onwards you'll get Septembers box.
I love subscription boxes, the surprise, the excitement of opening it and finding out what's inside, it's great. As such, when I knew there was baby subscription boxes, in the form of Sassy Bloom, I knew we needed to try it out for a few months. The box is £29.99 but promises that you'll get a value of over £40 so it's a good deal, though because it's pricey we're probably going to get a few months, take a break and then get a few more months when he's a bit older. The boxes are awesome, though.
A subscription like this wouldn't really have suited Ethan as he wasn't the sort of baby that actively played with toys. Oliver, on the other hand, just loves toys. I mean he Really loves toys and he plays with them exactly as they were intended. As such this box has been perfect for him.
I have a number of posts on the back burner, for you, but I have a nice quick one to share today. I've really been enjoying my Treat Box subscription from Not Shabby Very Chic and, again, I'm at the point where I need to decide whether or not to keep my subscription going. There has been the odd month where I only like half of the items, rather than all of them, but there hasn't, yet, been a month in which I haven't liked it at all. I really enjoy the boxes and the kinds of items included.
