May 2017 Holly Journals Review & Coupon


I've loved writing for as long as I can remember, especially journaling. It's therapeutic. I know I've said that before, but it truly is. I always kept Journals, but when I was 15 and lost my oldest brother, writing down the absolutely endless flood of emotions I was going through seemed to help me more than anything. I wish I still had those Journals. Sadly, I felt the need to cleanse myself of them when I was about 18 and threw them into a bonfire. I've recently started some new journals though, thanks in part to Holly Journals!

 
Holly Journals, who kindly sent me this box for review, is a monthly Journaling subscription box. The cost is $39.95 per month and each box includes a handmade journal with other coordinating treasures to inspire and encourage your journaling habit. They have a mini box as well that is half the size and costs $19.95 per month. 

 
It's always so nice to open this box and see all the fabulous things packed inside it. Want to try this box out for yourself? Use coupon code 4DIXIE at checkout and save $4 off your first month (excluding mini box and gift subscriptions)!

 
The May box theme is Wanderlust and the included card lists each item included in your box. 

 
Also included is a note from Holly and a writing prompt for this month. I love the prompt, btw. It's such a fantastic idea!

 
I love this month's journal even more than the last! This cover is just beautiful!

 
But the thing that really set these Journals apart are the inside! I adore all the little extras thrown in.

 
Quotes, envelopes, and other super creative and wonderful additions are mixed in with the regular pages and I just can't get enough. So much work is put into crafting these books and it really shows!

 
Each month features a new piece of Journal Jewelry that ties into the theme and design. I really love this and it's another thing that's so amazingly detailed. The little passport even opens up and has tiny pages with writing. It's adorable.

 
I love the extra little bits thrown in too. Stickers that fit the theme and paper clips to add important notes or special keepsakes to your journal. 

 
Two pens and a pencil were also included. I always appreciate that because I lose pens constantly. 

 
This is definitely my favorite extra in the box. At first, I didn't pay much attention to it but then I took a closer look.

 
It's a close-up piece of a map that shows my hometown and the surrounding area. Seriously? How amazing is this! It's so creative and unique! It's such a personal and special thing and I absolutely adore it and Holly for doing something so lovely. 

 
I loved the April box, but the May box just completely blew my mind. There's such detail and creativity here. It's a very personal box and you can feel the love that goes into crafting the items and the theme. It's just phenomenal!
