The Blogger Essentials Box By Dot Creates

Dot Creates is an online stationary and gift shop based in Essex. The business was established in 2015 by Danielle Timcke; who according to the website was originally a painter and lifestyle blogger at Dot About Town. With her penchant for painting Danielle quickly merged her blog, business and art and design experience into building Dot Creates - DOT being a clever play on her own initials.

If you have been following my social accounts closely, you'll know that I have been actively boasting about Danielle's work since the beginning of the year. In-fact I used her 'Ultimate Blog Planner' in my 'Important Life Lessons I Learnt Last Year' post and soon after purchased her 'Dream Big, Dream Often Print', 'Get Shit Done A5 Notebook' and 'Gold Foil Pencil Set' for my Facebook giveaway... However, most recently I did manage to get my hands on the 'The Blogger Essentials Box' and I am more than pleased with it.

The Blogger Essentials box contains a mixture of Dot Creates best selling and/or most popular products if you prefer, all with the purpose to help you stay organised and inspired whilst at work. Gift wrapped in white tissue paper and bubble wrap, then fastened together by a pocket sized print with spotty yellow washi tape - it's the perfect gift for any blogger.

Inside the box you will find four gold foil pencils engraved with; I NEED COFFEE, UM..., PUT THAT MAGIC ON PAPER and EAT SLEEP BLOG REPEAT. My collection of pens and pencils is quite extensive, but these are by far my favourite as the unique design stands out from my usual black and yellow Staedtler sets.

Alongside the pencils Danielle also included the Ultimate Blog Planner in peach. This is an all-in-one, A5 blog planner and is the perfect way to keep both your daily life and blog content well organised. It's small enough to carry in your handbag and easy to write on. With daily space, loads of post planning pages, upcoming events, sponsored content space and note pages; it's the planner of all planners - you won't need another. 

Also included were two hand drawn, motivational sticker sheets under; 'Believe and Achieve' and 'You Got This!' - they will certainly keep you going through tough assignments and/or blog related deadlines. You can pop them in your diary, on your notebook, laptop or perhaps even on the back of your phone as reminders.

Skillfully cut into an A6 sheet, with a glossy finish, these are an adorable addition to the blogger essentials box and will allow you to remain minimalistic, yet colourful all at the same time.

Next Danielle added four hand drawn quote designs, printed on premium thick paper stating; Eat Sleep Blog Repeat, Do More Of What Makes You Happy, Life Is Better In Rose Gold and Learn To Rest, Not Quit into the box.

I'm really looking forward to hanging these in frames above my bed or if you're looking for a decorative piece for your desk, you can purchase a wooden print stand from the Dot Creates website and have it sit pride of place, beside your abnormally stained cup of coffee come Monday morning.

And finally, what better way to organize your thoughts than with this cute 'Blog Planner Notepad'. With a large space to jot your ideas down, a content to-do section and the added bonus that this notepad actually makes a fantastic photo prop - this really is a blogger essential.

Printed on A5 tear-away sheets, you can use this as a space to brainstorm when having your favourite hot chocolate in Cafe Nero, or perhaps even sitting on the train to work. I can't wait to see what Danielle conjures up next.

Have you purchased the Blogger Essentials Box yet? What are your thoughts?
