Brimbles September Stationary Subscription box unboxing video.


Today Im hopping up and down to bring you my very 1st ever Brimbles box and if you dont know what that is, its a monthly stationary/planner box just for those of you who love scrapbooking, planners and crafts.

So being a bit of a newbie to art journaling I cannot express how excited I am to be opening this with you all today.
 There is always something exciting about subscription boxes, the waiting for it to arrive in the post and then the not knowing what is inside and then being able to rummage through to see what you've got....sooo exciting it brings the kid out in me lol!!!
Plus its the "Stationary Box"...breathe...so happy!

I have an admission to make though as I did however have a rough idea of what was inside as I saw Anna's September unboxing BUT I knew straight away I had to have it!
 I have loved Dreamcatchers and native American Indian jewellery all my life and I have been collecting these items for years, so when I saw what was in the this box; it had my name on it.

Just look how gorgeous this looks as you open the lid...the separate packages make it even more exciting, than if it was all loose inside.


Ive added a full video unboxing and complete look round at every item just as there maybe something you would like for your planners and scrapbooks too.

Boho styling has seemed to hit the planner world by storm this year so its been like Christmas for me with so many products available to buy and so much inspiration from many of you out there!
I have also recently purchased a new travelers notebook which I have planned to be completely Boho themed; so I had this notebook in mind as soon as I saw this box.

This Travelers Times Notebook (video here) is my main journaling one so I couldn't resist starting to theme this one too as I love the Dreamcatchers so much.
Checkout my previous review and you will see me starting to decorate it Boho style! 

So what was in it your asking...well to see everything in detail see my full unboxing video above, but hang around here to see a rough idea of what I got inside first if you wish.


  • Image 1 is a 12 x 12 inch pages of Kaiser Craft Boho stickers These are fab quality, the paper is really thick.

  •  Images 2 and 3 are one sheet which is a double sided kaiser craft sheet; I adore the feathers on one side but especially the girl holding the camera. I loved it so much I bought an extra sheet so it didn't matter if I cut one up. I so need this as a dashboard...shes beautiful!
  • Images 4 and 5 are also 1 sheet which is double sided and show a large dreamcatcher one side which you can colour in, as much as I love this its just too big for what I wanted for my journals; but on the other side are gorgeous Boho inspirational text quotes so you can use these for anything.
But wait there's more......

  • Image 1 is a huge bag of ephemera or diecuts there were 50 pieces of everything from dreamcatchers, feathers, the girl holding the camera, flowers and so much more, I go through every piece in my video if you want to see them in detail.
  • Image 2 we have a postcard where Anna explains the theme of this months box and a matching postit booklet that have her own dreamcatcher drawings on the front; aren't these gorgeous.
  • Image 3 is one of my favorites the feather washi tape OMG I cant wait to use this.
  • Image 4 is a beautiful stamp set which has made me go off and collect some stamps; plus some ink pads and a block as Ive never used stamping before. Its something Ive wanted to do but never got around to it, so its another item I just cant wait to use as soon as my inks arrive.
  • Image 5, lastly is a beautiful watercolour postcard which just sums up my love for birds which says ;
"Hope is a thing with feathers!"


Yep there's even more...I couldn't contain myself when I found these gorgeous fox stickers inside as they almost match one of my Lyra & Co fauxdori's I got earlier in the year...dont they match well...what do you think?


Then I also added to the order this adorable bunny which is a correction tape on one ear and an eraser on the other, I have been looking for something to correct stuff for ages so it just had to go in my basket. (He wasn't part of the Brimbles box!)

You get so much for your money and as a stationary addict this is just so much fun to wade through!

Summary
I absolutely loved my 1st Brimbles box even though I knew some of what was in it, it was still as exciting for me as I knew I was going to love every item to use in my travelers notebooks.
But checkout my video to see me unboxing it and my reactions plus see the items close-up inside. There maybe something you may like for your planners and craftwork too.

I would definitely purchase one again and dont forget we have Halloween coming up and the dreaded word...Christmas...Ill whisper it for those like me who want to keep Christmas in December.
They would make the perfect present under the tree for someone who loves scrapbooking and planning.

So thanks for watching hope you enjoyed this post and video; its something different but I know some of you love stationary as much as I do so I wanted to share it with you all.

EBoot 7 piece gel nail art brushes Review


I've something for all you nail addicts out there today...no not the hammer and nail but the hand and nail kind.
Ive recently started doing gel/acrylic nails after many years as I'm an ex nail tech so decided I wanted to start doing my own nails again after many years.

So when I was kindly offered these to review I jumped at the chance as I only had a small shorty gel brush from Naio...even though that is very good; sometimes you just want a different size brush for other things.

Gellen UV LED 14 polish Review and Video


 Gellen Uv LED 14 polish Review and Video

Hi everyone no you haven't got the wrong website its still Gadget Girl and no Ive not become a beauty blogger nor am I trying to be one.
However anyone who knows me knows how much I love my nails. I originally qualified as a nail tech back in the late 80's...yep I am that old lol! But sadly had to give up for health reasons so now its just a huge naily hobby.
 
So when Gellen approached me and offered a few sets of their latest New UV LED nail polishes for review I bit their hand off.
 They kindly offered me 2 different sets and I chose the listing that enabled me to choose my own colours...so...exciting..!
 


 Here are both the listings I chose.
Gellen brand starter kit (6 x10ml Black bottles).
 Gellen brand environmental starter set (6 x 8ml white bottles).
 I am beyond excited as Ive only just started collecting UV LED gel polishes and generally they are quite pricey.
I have added a full video review as I feel its far better to see the polishes rather than just images of colours.

So grab a coffee and a bikky and sit back and let me try out all these gorgeous polishes for you. So all you have to do is pick your favorite colours.
