Happy Mail August 2015

Happy Mail is a monthly card subscription box that was launched by blog A Beautiful Mess. The cost is $20 a month plus $2 for international shipping. The cost goes down the longer the commitment. I signed up for a one year commitment so it is costing me $15 a month plus shipping. I’ve been a fan of A Beautiful Mess for quite some time now. They cover a variety of topics from cooking, DIY, fashion, photography, blogging etc. They have also come out with Messy Box which consists of paper, stickers, washi tape, and many other items that you need to make great albums and scrapbooks.

Hey look, I’m actually writing this review in the right month! It seems to have made it’s way over to me faster than usual so that was nice to see!

Final Thoughts

I was definitely happy with this month, there were a lot of non-specific occasion cards which is great. I love all the bright colors that were used. I think the birthday card is my favorite just because the cake on it looks so delicious! I still haven’t used any of the word stickers that I’ve gotten since subscribing. I think I might start using them in my day planner since I just don’t see myself using them in cards.
