February 2017 Holly Journals review time!
If you haven’t heard, Holly Journals is a monthly subscription box that features a handmade journal with other coordinating treasures to inspire and encourage your journaling habit. Each box will feature a different theme which all of the contents will center around. The highlight of the box will be a beautiful, handmade journal (approximately 7.5″ x 5.5″) with at least 50 pages — 100 front and back. Many different sizes, shapes, colors, and specialty types of paper are used to give these journals their custom, one-of-a-kind look and feel. You’ll also receive a list of journal prompts, a themed book dangle with charms, an embellishment pack, one or more pens, and a bonus surprise.

Let’s see what’s in the February 2017 Holly Journals box!
Everything was shipped in a small white box with a pink Holly Journals sticker on top.
A peek inside!
Holly Journals is now offering a Mini Journal Box! — “Half the size & all the cuteness” for only $19.95/month (shipping included).
An info card revealed the theme for this month’s box — “For the Love of Paris” — and listed all of the items included inside.
The journal itself was wrapped in tissue paper and sealed with a cute pink & black birdie sticker.
Welp, this is most definitely a Paris-inspired journal! (Fun fact: In 2005, I fell down the hill at the Sacré-Cœur in Paris resulting in a nice set of French stitches in my chin. Ah, memories… 😉 ) As always, the book consists of at least 50 2-sided pages of various paper textures, sizes, and colors.
I took a TON of photos because the pages were just too pretty not to share.
I loved the pink, white, and black color scheme. — Perfect for Paris and Valentine’s Day.
How cute is this?! — A pink library checkout card with its own little polka dotted pocket!
So many different types of paper and textures!
I actually took a few more page spread photos, but I think you get the idea. 😉
A helpful list of journal prompts was included to give you ideas of what to write about.
Three pens were included this month. — A white gel pen, a pink “crystal” pen with stylus on the end, and…
… a LIPSTICK pen! 😀
February’s embellishment pack included a variety of Paris-themed labels and stickers to add even more personality to the pages of your journal.
Unfortunately, my “journal bling” arrived with a piece of it detached and I’m not quite sure how to fix it/where it was supposed to go. Ah well… Can’t win ’em all. 😉
When I first saw the box, I figured this was just a wine colored lip tint… But nope! — It’s an actual wine bottle shaped lip tint! How freakin’ cute. 😀 According to the box, it’s a long-wearing, bold yet delicate color that resembles quality wine while moisturizing the lips.
Two different candies were also included in February’s box. (Pink, of course!) — Sweet strawberry taffy and candy sticklettes.
I was kinda hoping for a Valentine’s Day theme for February’s Holly Journals box, but Paris was most definitely a suitable alternative. As always, the journal itself was gorgeous and the bonus items went along with the theme perfectly. 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time you can save 10% off for life with coupon code “RB10“!
