Trendy Memo May 2018 Review
Enclosed in each box is an info card with a list of the contents of the box and on the back of the card a “top goals & priorities” checklist.
Rose Gold 8” Scissors – Retail Value $15.00
Wow, I was blown away by the quality and sturdiness of these scissors, and these will replace my current scissors on my desk. The stainless steel rose gold scissors are 8 inches in overall length and are slightly heavier than the standard scissors I own. The blades are sharp and give a precise cut, and the overall rose gold finish is lovely. Also, the rose gold scissors are sold out on their website.
Rose Gold Picture Frame – Estimated Value $15.00
I was in need of a photo frame, but sadly the dimensions were off; I have old photos in need of a frame, so I will look through my pile to check if it will fit in this frame. This sleek rose gold photo frame will hold a 4×6” photo. This frame is the perfect size to display on my desk at home or on my nightstand. The color rose gold always makes the item fancier and gives a chic look to any décor.
Flint Metallic Lint Roller– Retail Value $9.99
Trendy Memo often departs from sending the standard office supplies and sends a lifestyle item that’s purposeful and a must-have. This month subscribers received a retractable portable lint roller. I have received this product before in another color from a previous subscription box. The lint roller is reusable, refillable, and portable. The refills for the lint roller are here.
Here I twisted the lint roller to display the lint sheets. I twisted the lint roller, rolled onto my garment and pushed the top to close. The lint roller managed to get some lint off my shirt, but I didn’t have a lot of lint on the garment, to begin with, but it was effective.
Rose Gold Pen – Retail Value $14.99
The color theme continues with this rose gold pen with black ink and a twist opening. A standard ballpoint pen that has a thick design, not like the typical slim ballpoint pens I own; and it writes with ease. Also, the pen came in a box ready to be wrapped and gifted.
This sleek water drop design in rose gold intends to keep your hands free as you watch a video on your phone, or hold your phone in place without dropping. The loop can act as a stand; there’s a 3M silicone surface adhesive to attach to my phone to keep in place. The phone ring holder had no manufactures name on it, so the link is taken from the search I did, and the items are alike. I have a pop socket on the back of my phone that yields similar results. I didn’t realize how easier it is when using these types of gadgets and I get a better grip on my phone. It also speaks volumes about how addicted we are when it comes to our phones; I know I am.
The Verdict: Trendy Memo has a boxed value of $60.97. Their monthly value fluctuates monthly some months it’s around $40-$50+. So, keep that in mind if you decide to subscribe. This month’s color scheme is rose gold and last month’s was marble. I see a pattern and look forward to June’s color scheme. This month’s favorites are the photo frame and scissors. I especially like how the rose gold gives the pieces a chic look. This subscription does deliver on sending 5-6 items per month, and the products are suited for my office, they often include beauty, fashion and lifestyle items. Each has their unique style as to how they decide to adorn their desk, and this subscription can assist in the creative process.
