Unboxing : January UglyBug Planner and Stationery Box

As it is the 3rd January now and most people will be receiving their boxes any day now I thought I would do an unboxing on my blog and YouTube channel. The boxes normally go out on the 27th of each month and cost £15 including postage. They have a different “theme” every month and have a variety of stationery and planner accessories in them.

This months box was “Shine like a Diamond”, the boxes all come out the same with the new branding on them now that we have transitioned over to Ugly Bug Plans. The boxes are available from my Etsy store (this months has sold out) Februaries box “Dare to Dream” will ship on the 27th January.

Sometimes the boxes are all colour coordinated but this month I have gone for “bling” as a theme and who else would best appear on some blingy stickers that Audrey Hepburn.


There are 3 sheets of planner stickers and a half sheet of word/phrase stickers.

The other items in the boxes are a purple “gemstone” washi, gem stone post it notes (various colours), rose gold coloured pen with large gem on the end and a 2017 motivational planner charm/keyring.

I had planned on adding a dashboard to this months kit but logistically that would be a nightmare, from now on all the monthly boxes will be a generic size and there will be “add ons” available to purchase separately.

You can view the unboxing video HERE which also includes some footage of me talking about my future plans for my YouTube channel and it also mentions a competition to win this box which you can find details of below.

January Ugly Bug Planner and Stationery Box Giveaway


Competition : UglyDori Winner

Looks like I made a bit of a boo boo…. I totally missed the date to draw the winner of the competition and ended up drawing it late.

I really wanted to draw it live on Facebook but the website I use shows the email address of the winner so I had to switch the camera angle… I think for next weeks competition I’ll use a different website lol.
So the winner of the custom UglyDori and accessories was drawn on my Facebook page last night. I have emailed  the winner and she has 48 hours from yesterday to claim the prize before it is redrawn.

Don’t forget to come back on Tuesday and try your luck again.

Competition : Christmas Planner Winner

For some reason, this clever cookie, set the competition time for 12am this morning. Obviously I would have loved to stay up and annouce the winner then but…. I like sleep too much ha.

So at 7am this morning I used the rafflecopter widget to draw a random winner. 

Thank you all for taking part, I’ve loved reading your comments on what you most love about Christmas.

I will be hosting another giveaway which will start on Monday morning, so make sure you check back for that.

Congratulations Lisa Parker who has already emailed me to claim her prize which will be on its way this weekend! 

Thank you to Hannah of Plan With Hannah for providing the Christmas planner inserts for this competition.
