Moustache Stationery Box: September

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

I'm back with another unboxing and review of my most recent Moustache Stationery Box! Last month, I wrote about the awesome goodies included in the box, with the Made in America theme, and this month I thought I would do the same! Basically, for $39.95 each month, you get a box of beautiful, unique stationery items delivered right to your door. Check it out and sign up here!


I only had two thoughts when I opened this box. Oh my... and NO WAY. As I kept pulling the products out of the box, the giddy smile on my face grew wider and wider. This month was all about Palomino and all of it's amazing, pencil lover glory.


The first thing I pulled out was this set of three Small Flex notebooks. They are graph paper, which is my personal favorite type of paper, and they are small enough to throw in my purse on the go or carry to work. Plus the paper... BEAUTIFUL.




The cornerstone of this box was the set of twelve Palomino Blackwing Pearl pencils in white. And oh my god, they are absolutely gorgeous. I probably sat and stroked these pencils for a solid ten minutes.



These are by far the nicest pencils I have ever had. I bought one a while ago from Two Hands Paperie in Boulder, CO. I'm not usually a pencil person since I love the look of a dark black ink, but I use pencils for drawing and French, as well as for writing in library books (don't hate me). The eraser is replaceable (and the awesome guys at Moustache Stationery so kindly included a TON of extras), so you never have a pencil without the eraser. Plus, the erasers are SO SOFT. There is nothing worse than a hard or scratchy eraser *cringes*. You know how people hate the sound of nails on a chalkboard? I hate the feeling of a hard eraser on notebook paper.


Now, you can't use a pencil without a PERFECTLY sharp tip, right? Well, the Blackwing Long Point pencil sharpener makes sure you always have a perfectly sharpened pencil whenever you need it. Plus, it has an automatic brake to prevent over sharpening, which is perfect for overly enthusiastic people (like me).


While I did like the August box, this Palomino collaboration box is definitely more my speed! These pencils are amazing. I want to exclusively use pencil always because of them, and I will probably give them to all my stationery-skeptic friends (er, maybe not. I'll just hoard them and make all my friends try one). I love how they always include a full set to make whatever you get completely usable fresh out of the box... pencils, a pencil sharpener, extra erasers, and a set of notebooks.

Great job, James and Simone! I can't wait for more Moustache Stationery goodness in the coming months.

What is your favorite subscription box? Have any other stationery lovers out there tried this box?
