It’s hard not to want to do a review when the mail that arrives is so pretty, especially after coming home to it from a long day at work. On that note, this is going to be a written write-up instead of my normal video reviews, because I’m tired!!! Enjoy your youth while you have it, guys…
For the month of May, I ordered from both the $35 tier of Rainbowholic Patreon and also bundled it with the monthly stationery pack from Rainbowholic Store. The two were sent together (with a Patreon-exclusive discount on the monthly stationery pack!!) and packaged separately in cute bags decorated with masking tape samples. There is something particularly pleasing about pulling them off the cellophane when wanting to use them.
Rainbowholic Patreon May 2019
I’ll first start with the actual patron reward, which was the $35 character tier. This month’s cutie was Rilakkuma, featuring stationery samples from a collaboration exclusive to Tokyo Station. As far as I can tell, the $35 tier is the same as the $30 just with the additional kawaii character items, so I feel it’s a great deal to add $5 and get a bunch of more really cute stuff! My favorite items in particular are Kaila’s own handmade sticker sheets, I think they’re so cute and the motivational messages are perfect for my posi-journaling!!
Rainbowholic Monthly Stationery Pack
The monthly stationery pack was “colorful patterned” theme, which ultimately is my favorite kind of theme to journal with since it’s so versatile. I didn’t think twice about ordering the pack, which was ¥2800 (just under $28) after the Patreon discount. The pack came with beautiful origami papers, sticker sheets, a bunch of memo samples, Miffy!!!, and a really beautiful Petit Deco Roller with a lovely and simple pattern.
For the $35 tier, a tracking number is also included on its way from Japan. Considering that and other Patreon maintenance fees, I feel that the $35 tier is well worth the cost especially considering the exclusivity of the items. Despite the fact that I can shop at LoFT online and visit Daiso in the States, Kaila always finds the cutest stationery which makes me very excited to open my patron’s reward every month.
Additionally, a big benefit is with the way they are packaged, they make perfect journaling kits – they contain just about everything you need! I’ve been working from these two packs all week in my own daily Hobonichi and still have so much to still use up. It’s like breathing new life into your journal when you get to update your stationery collection, and the high-quality memo sheets and masking tapes Kaila provides always hit the mark.
If you are interested in joining Rainbowholic Patreon, I highly recommend it! The community is kind and thoughtful. Additionally, I also give five stars to Rainbowholic Store for excellent packing, customer service, and just generally staring great stationery across the ocean. If there’s anywhere you want to spend money on stationery, I really, truly can’t recommend Kaila enough. Support your fellow creators! 💖
Until next time~
