Brace yourselves, because this is going to be a complete rave review. I am absolutely besotted with NOT ANOTHER BILL, everything about the brand from the service and packaging, to exquisite and luxurious gifts. For those of you who are new to NOT ANOTHER BILL, they are a monthly subscription service with a twist. Instead of sending boxes of product samples, NOT ANOTHER BILL send out a monthly surprise present, based on your taste preferences and chosen with high quality, unique and innovative design in mind. The idea is instead of only having bills pop through your letterbox every month, which are never fun to receive, you can have a surprise present instead! You can subscribe for yourself, if you're looking for a pick-me-up throughout the month, or you can subscribe on the behalf of someone else, perhaps a friend you want to spoil as a thank you just for being them! Each month the present is chosen depending on preferences you specify when you sign up, and each present is picked to perfectly match each subscriber.
I was very kindly sent my own NOT ANOTHER BILL present for myself, and when my present* arrived, I was instantly wowed. Even the packaging for NOT ANOTHER BILL looks fantastic, with a black chevron design, it just feel more special and chic than the usual bill popping through the letterbox! When I opened up my present, I saw a flash of bright, vivid, almost neon pink and when I pulled my present out of the packaging, I realised what it was. An absolutely stunning leather document wallet from a brand called UNDERCOVER. I've never actually heard of UNDERCOVER before, but having fallen instantly in love with my present, I decided to check out the official website. Created by Sally Leonard-Morgan, UNDERCOVER creates beautiful pieces from leather, sometimes using recycled leather, which are lovingly handmade in the humble UNDERCOVER workshop, right here in the heart of England. UNDERCOVER is one of those websites where you literally want to add every single product to your basket. I particularly love the Bug Patterned range. But that's not all! Inside my cheerfully bright leather document wallet, I found two gorgeous notebooks and an adorable bracelet. The notebooks come from a luxury British stationery brand called StudioSarah, created by Sarah Silver, who creates chic, stylist and modern stationery products. I love the colour scheme for both notebooks, which will stay in my document wallet for important notes and ideas. The bracelet inside my present is a lovely, simple yet unique piece from Fairley, created by Australian born designer Susannah Fairley. For me, my present was perfect and absolutely spot on. I'm always grabbing new notebooks to fill with dissertation notes or blog ideas, and the document wallet is just perfect for keeping all my blog and beauty notes, press releases and wishlists in one place. The bracelet is really cute and definitely a piece I would wear on a hot summers day when I want a touch of something-something, but nothing overdone.
So what do you think to NOT ANOTHER BILL? Pretty awesome, right? I'm really, really happy with my presents and they completely blew me away - I wasn't expecting something so 'me' and so perfect for everyday use, yet still luxurious and unique. NOT ANOTHER BILL have surpassed all of my expectations and more - I think I might be hooked! You can find out more and sign up on the NOT ANOTHER BILL website. Sign up before May 7th to make sure you receive a NOT ANOTHER BILL present through your letterbox in May!
