Review of snail mail kit from peachandpoppyco + pen pal with me! *Spins in a circle*

Hello beautiful people! How are you doing today? I’m doing well and I hope the same for you πŸ™‚

Today I have an exciting post for you all- a review of a lovely product from Megan’s Etsy shop, peachandpoppyco!

edit/update: I’ve used this product a lot more now ( 5/24/19), and can officially say: IM IN LOVE. It’s so handy and cute and my kit is almost gone and I may have to buy another soon πŸ™‚

I recently reached out to Megan on Etsy, not realizing/processing that I followed her blog and when she replied she mentioned that she also blogged and I was like, “oh! I do know you then!” πŸ™‚ Anyways, I reached out to Megan to see if she would be interested in sending me a product to review and she kindly agreed! So I want to give a big thanks to her, Thank you so much for sending me a product to review and for being so willing and helpful in this collaboration! Megan is so sweet and her Etsy shop is full of adorable snail mail and pen-paling things, I wish I could buy it all! Make sure to check out her shop right here! Now onto the review!

I received this snail mail/pen paling kit and it is the Travel Snail Mail Kit which is absolutely my favorite. I love the aesthetics and ahhh the traveling vibe is so cute and I overall love it. The kit includes 12 stationary sheets, 1 sticker sheet, 4 envelopes, 2 rolls of Washi tape, 4 cutouts, and 3 postcards.

Isn’t it all so cute?! Just looking at it makes me happy xD

I especially love the vintage-y looking postcards, they’re so aesthetic and pretty and vintage. so duh. They’re pretty cool. The Washi tape is really cool because I don’t have enough Washi tape so I was super pleased to get more! And I love the cut-outs and stickers, super cute and I love sticking them on envelopes and letters!

The packaging was so cute, and everything was packaged very nicely. The package had this sticker on the back which is adorable and I just needed to show you because I love it so much! I kinda want to peel this off and re-use it on a envelope ;)))

Anyways, to review them, I decided to do a pen-pal with me type post, so here is what I sent to my friend, Sydney!

These cutouts are some of my favorite things, I glued them onto some envelopes and I thought they turned out quite cute! They would also be fun to stick in envelopes.

To decorate her envelope I added some Washi tape and I glued one of the cutouts in the corner and I thought it turned out super cute! Also I covered the address with a piece of paper because ummm private info xD

I wrote Sydney a letter using the adorable stationary and then I also sent her some dried flowers in a small bag I made, which was not included in the kit. I did use the Washi tape from the kit to decorate the bag!

On the back of then envelope I used some more Washi tape ( can u tell I love that stuff xD) and I also used a sticker to add some cuteness πŸ™‚ I labeled it quarantine mail because I know Sydney in real life, she lives like 20 minutes away from me, but we’ve been sending each other mail during the quarantine, which has been quite fun!

My rating: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

Pros: I love how almost everything is included that you need to write a letter/ it shipped extremely fast-only 2 days!/ it’s all adorable and super aesthetically pleasing/ Megan is so sweet and a gem to work with/ overall it’s beautiful πŸ™‚

Cons: The price was a little to much for me, but I’m also a cheap skate so I don’t know. and that’s all.

Update on Cons: I don’t think its actually that expensive when you compare how much the envelopes and Washi tape and postcards and such would cost individually so I’m going to reevaluate and say, there’s no cons. So go buy this kit. Because it is awesome πŸ™‚

Make sure to go check out Megans shop right here! It’s lovely, isn’t it? Again, thank you so much to Megan for being willing to work with me, I appreciate it more than you know and I hope you all have a lovely day!

How are you? Are you enjoying my letter writing/ pen-pal posts? Should I do more? Have you ever gotten something from Megans shop? What’s your favorite flavor of icecream? Talk to me in the comments, I’d love to chat!

xx, Jasmin

      4. I did!! I’ve nearly finished all of June’s spreads which is AWESOME!! What made me stop bujo-ing in the first place was constantly being behind on spreads so I’m finding methods to stay on top of that 😊 I actually have a post scheduled to come out in June al about my spreads, it won’t be a monthly thing but it will be nice to do it every other month or so πŸ’• For sure! Glad you understood what I was talking about, #awkward if you didn’t! πŸ˜‚

      5. Awhhh I’m so proudddd!! Ah I totally get that- staying on top of all the spreads can be really tiring! Oooo I can’t wait :)) I’m sure I’ll love it! I need to get my spreads figured out, I have the idea for the theme but I haven’t even started to actually set it up πŸ˜‚
        Haha I understood so all good πŸ‘ŒπŸΌβ€οΈ

      6. Aw thank you! Tell me about it, I’ve made a system where each month I make the next month’s spreads so it never feels stressful or like I’m behind ☺️ Awh thank you! Ah finding the motivation to bujo can be tricky but you got this :))
