The Blogger Essentials Box by Dot Creates 

Helloooooo. I hope you all had a lovely Easter and had loads of chocolate. I probably had way too much and need to get back to the gym haha. 


My sister recently brought me the Blogger Essentials Box from Dot Creates and I’m in love with it. This post is obviously not sponsored in anyway as I got this as a surprise but I just thought I’d do a little mini review to show you guys what exactly you get in the box.

If you don’t know anything about Dot Creates.. It’s an online stationary store and is basically heaven for bloggers. From prints, planners and notebooks to phone cases they have everything a blogger can dream of. I purchased a few little bits from there a few months ago but just a couple of weeks ago my sister purchased the Blogger Essentials Box for me and I couldn’t have been happier. I had cheekily shared it on twitter saying how I needed it in my life haha. Unfortunately when it came through the letter box it was a little damaged which I was a little disappointed by but the products inside were all fine which is the main thing and I couldn’t be happier with it!


The box contains a mixture of their most popular products to help you stay super organised and inspired. It came gift wrapped in white tissue paper and bubble wrap, then fastened together with a little print (which couldn’t be more true) with spotty yellow washi tape. So onto what you get inside the box.. 

The first thing I came across were these 4 white pencils with gold writing engraved, the sayings are perfect: I NEED COFFEE, UMM…, PUT THAT MAGIC ON PAPER and EAT SLEEP BLOG REPEAT. I hardly ever use pencils but these are cute and I’ll probably use these as blog props. 

Along side the pencils was the ultimate blog planner. I had been eying this up on the website so I was happy when I saw this in the box! The peach (although it looks pink in the picture) colour is just perfect and it’s small enough to carry in your bag. This will help me SO SO much with my organisation. To be honest I don’t think I’ll ever purchase another planner as this is just amazing, I can plan out my daily life as well as all my blog stuff. There’s so much space and I love it! 


The next things I found were these cute little stickers! They are perfect for your notepad, diary or laptop to help keep you motavited! Especially helpful for me as I seem to always get distracted.. 


Also included in the box were these four quote prints. These quotes are hand drawn on premium think paper and you can defenitly tell as they are such good quality! I’m currently trying to get all the quotes I’ve got in frames and onto a wall so these will make a great addition and there also great for blog props / Insta posts 🙂 


The last thing I picked out of the box was the blog planner notepad. I’ve got this on my sideboard in my room so when I think of something, it could be a new post idea or just even something as simple as an idea for an Instagram post that I can add to the bottom of the notepad I can just write it down which is good as I’m always forgetting every single thing lately! The blog planner notepad is just so useful to help stay organised! 

Have you brought the blogger essentials box yet or are you thinking of purchasing? Let me know in the comments!

Love Samba

    I have never heard of dot creates before, their stuff looks bloody amazing. I’d almost be afraid to use it because it looks so pretty haha. Def perfect for using as photo props if nothing else. I especially love their little quotes, will have to check those out as I am planning a photo wall for my bedroom at the moment.

    Beautifully photographed as well!
