I have been keen to write about this brand for a while. The first parcel I ordered from them were gifts so I couldn’t really upload a proper post about them. BUT today’s box is all for me, so you’re getting the low down on these adorable pieces. The brand is called Pastel Elixir and are currently having a huge sale.
They’re clearing out some old stock to make way for new items being brought into the store (exciting!). Last week, they started doing 2 types of “Mystery Box” where you pay a certain price and get much more for your money as what is picked out is a surprise! I ordered the £5 box where you get £10 worth of products and am going to share the contents with you today.
Pastel Elixir is a bundle of fun business run by the lovely Ellis Woolley who is the creativity and talent behind the business. All designs are drawn, made and cheerfully packaged with love by herself whilst her partner James makes sure they’re all sent off promptly! Then of course there are the adorable little elves of the team. By elves I mean doggies called Vespa and Custard (that name!) who control stock and tea breaks. All of their wonderful products are sent out from a place in the UK called Leicestershire.
THE SQUIRREL. I cannot get over how cute that print is. It’s definitely my favourite of the three but not by a lot as the other two are just adorable too. The llama one really makes me giggle. I love that a lot of Ellis’ prints are animal based and she paints them in such a delicate way. Pastel Elixir promote veganism too in their products so definitely check them out if you want to pick up a few cute badges or a tote bag displaying your love for animals!
These weren’t actually in the sale but Ellis knew that I’m a big fan of spooky things and very kindly made some especially for my box. How sweet is that!? These have got to be the most adorable stickers I’ve ever seen. Little skulls, ghosts, gothicy bits. Lotions, potions and my personal favourite, the poison apple. They’ve also got a poison apple necklace which I am DESPERATE for and keep hinting at my boyfriend for. He has not yet processed this hint but I’ll keep you all updated if it happens to arrive…
I ordered a few cards from Pastel Elixir in my last batch and they’re so carefully crafted that it makes them so much more personal to give. This is a cute little watercolour Happy Birthday one which will be perfect to keep and use sometime this Summer! The postcard is for sure something I’d put on my fridge as it’s essentially just like a smaller print! The one in the middle is a business card, I just thought it was brilliant so popped it in the photo too.
These are also spooky which pleases me greatly and that little pumpkin is my damn favourite. You know when something is so cute you just want to squish it? Those are my feelings towards it. They’re super sturdy and easy to apply to any sort of material. I’ll most likely be putting them on my leather or denim jackets to spruce them up a little!
I feel like I haven’t particularly articulated myself well in this post. Probably due to the fact that all Pastel Elixir products are so adorable that they make me a tad lost for words. If that doesn’t tell you that you at least need to go and take a look at the website, then I don’t know what does.
The website is HERE by the way, so go have a browse and support a really fabulous independent business! If you love any of these products I’d get over there quick to purchase before they’re gone. I’m so excited to see the new additions to the store and can’t wait to put in another order!
