I have always been obsessed with stationery, the best part about the summer holidays while I was at school was buying all my new stationery for the year ahead, I loved it. I love stationery so much that I even started my own little business and I constantly search through Instagram looking for pretty pictures. I stumbled across Mink Studio and my gosh, you are going to fall in love.
I followed Mink Studio on Instagram and swooned over every image that Natalie, the owner posted. Her products are everything I love, gold, marble and blush pink, it’s obvious that I click the heart button on every new image. A couple of weeks ago, Natalie messaged me on Instagram asking if I would like to feature her products on my blog and I couldn’t quite believe it, I was incredibly excited and said yes straight away. All of Natalie’s images on her Instagram are just so beautiful, her products perfectly placed, bright and stunning photography, it showcases her stationery brilliantly.
As you can see above, even the packaging is exquisite, the perfectly folded blush pink paper sealed with a gold foiled Mink Studio sticker, it’s so pretty. I didn’t want to open it, I sat staring at the parcel for the entire morning, finally after snapping at least 50 images of just the packaging alone, I finally unwrapped it to see what I had been sent.
I was sent three items and the first product is perfect for any Gossip Girl fan. Although I never watched the TV series I read all the books and loved the sign off of XOXO. These white XOXO pencil sets come in a pack of 5 and are just so adorable. I love gold foiled pencils, I stock my own in my store but you can never have too many. I love how they come packaged in a white sleeve with another gold foiled Mink Studio sticker, so professional and expensive looking.
PIN IT!Merci Beaucoup Greeting Card* – Single – £2.00 / Set of 4 – £7.00
Next is this beautiful greeting card, a marbled effect with gold foiling, it’s just beautiful and if you know me, I am obsessed with anything gold or foiled so both together is a serious yes from me. These are of such great quality with the card being 300gsm, they are definitely a luxury product.
PIN IT!XOXO Notelet Set* – Pack of 6 – £5.50
Finally this set of 6 XOXO notelet cards are such a lovely idea. Foiled in gold on textured matte card, they are also of great quality and the grey envelopes really finish off the set. I will never be able to bring myself to use these, or the card, they are just far too pretty.
You can buy everything separately or as a Luxury Stationery Set for £15.00. The hand-written note is so rare these days, sending a simple thank you message or hello is so easy to do now by text, email or even just by sending a tweet. It’s sad that writing a letter to your best friend or pen-pal is a rare occasion, but beautiful luxury stationery company’s like Mink Studio really make me want to write a letter.
I think it’s safe to say that I absolutely adore this brand. Natalie has hit the nail on the head in terms of quality, her aesthetic and her attention to detail is just exceptional. If you want to also be the proud owner of beautiful stationery then you can purchase the products from her main site www.MinkStudio.co.uk or on her Etsy shop StudioMink. Also, don’t forget to give the shops Instagram, @Mink__Studio, a follow too. If you love pretty pictures with perfectly placed products, then you’re going to love it.
