I have definitely missed talking about subscription boxes on An Ocean Glimmer, during 2017 I regularly received Infinity Crates, an entertainment and geek-filled box, but once I moved to Aylesbury and money became tight, I had to stop this monthly luxury. I was very lucky enough to receive the JABbox from Just Add Blog, a monthly subscription service for bloggers.
This service has been created to help your blog grow as each month you receive 5-7 different digital items, straight to your inbox. What makes JABbox even better is that all the content has been created by fellow bloggers, photographers and creative minded people. There’s a wide variety of items you could receive, anything from stock photos, how-to guides and fonts to printables and planners.

Etsy is one of those websites that you can find anything created by a very talented person, be it stickers for your journals, cute illustrations or even notebooks and other stationery. I adore shopping around all these different stores, they even make for some great presents for your loved ones. Recently I came across the Birdhouse Calligraphy after Louise was on the search for bloggers who adored handmade items. I always love promoting new stores so I jumped at the chance to collaborate with Louise.
After checking out her Etsy store, I fell in love with her work, it’s all so beautiful and even better than that, it’s all handmade by Louise! None of her work is digitalised, it is all handmade when she receives the order, which in my eyes is amazing! You’ll always know that you are receiving something that has been hand created by her own hands. Calligraphy is something that I’ve always loved! I would love to know how to do it and do it well at that, so I am even more impressed by what she does.
There are so many different Etsy shops that you can browse for pretty much anything, notebooks, stickers, planner essentials, what ever you can think of, there maybe someone who creates it. Recently I came across Juniper Daze Designs, an Etsy shop created by Steph Whyte from Juniper Daze. I follow Steph on Twitter and I absolutely LOVE her blog, so I jumped at the chance to have a look at her shop.
Her shop isn’t even a month old yet, so it’s still pretty fresh! I know of a few bloggers who own a Etsy shop, which is pretty cool as I don’t think I could run a blog, shop and work part-time! Steph is quite a crafty person, so the idea to open a shop was quite easy, as she wanted to share this with the rest of the world. As well as creating a lot of DIY crafty pieces for her own wedding.
Subscription Boxes are becoming more popular amongst everyone, as no matter what your interests are, I guarantee there will be a box out there for you. As you know, I am subscribed to Infinity Crates, a crate filled with entertainment goodness. I love receiving this every month, as I never know what I’m going to receive until I open it up.
I came across a new Subscription Box, Artemis & Xena, I immediately fell in love as I love the concept of the box. Ani founded Artemis & Xena after struggling with her mental well-being as a teenager and during the first year of University. A change of thinking and lifestyle helped her to get through her difficulties, therefore she wants to help other women who may be facing difficulties too using what helped her.
I adore supporting little stores on Etsy, with Christmas just around the corner, I thought it was perfect timing to pop along to Jemma Humphreys’ Etsy Store. I recently did a mini-haul of her Halloween stickers, I fell in love with them so much, that I of course needed to pick up her Christmas ones to get myself in the festive spirit.

I love it when you’ve ordered something online and then a couple of days later it’s sat on your mat just waiting for you to open it. Recently I did a small order from Dorkface’s Etsy store. For those of you who don’t know who Dorkface is, real name Jemma Humphreys, she is a blogger and founder of the Girl Gang.
