Trendy Memo November 2018 Review
Enclosed is the monthly info card with the box contents and their description.
Warm + Cozy Campfire Coffee Mug – Retail Value $17.99
I received this festive red campfire mug with gold trim on the rim of the mug. It holds eighteen ounces of liquid, hand wash, and do not microwave. There’s hand-lettering on both sides of the mug that says, “warm + cozy” in white. I used the mug to pour the tea bag I received as an extra item in this month’s box. This will be my winter/Christmas mug.
Warm + Cozy Soy Candle – Retail Value $17.99
This hand-made soy candle is made in the USA in small batches and hand-poured in Sewickley, PA. The glass jar is 9oz, has a burn time of 40-80 hours, and has “warm + cozy” written on the candle’s label. The saying matches the red campfire mug above. The candle is infused with natural essential oils, orange, cinnamon, clove, vetiver, and pine. The candle’s top notes are orange peel, cinnamon, and ginger, the middle notes are clove, and, cypress and lastly the base notes are vetiver, pine, and fir balsam. I burned the candle while typing this review and the scent was faint and I didn’t pick up the notes mentioned, maybe with more burn time, the true aroma will manifest. The brand Sweet Water Décor is a popular pick this holiday season for Trendy Memo.
Assorted Pastel Sticky Notes – Retail Value $4.99
This assorted sticky note set has five-page sticky note flags, fifty each that has, “GIFT”, “NEED”, “LOVE”, ”WANT”, and “TO DO”, and three small sticky notes, fifty each that say, “MUST REMEMBER”, “DON’T FORGET” and a lined sheet with boxes to check off your to-do’s. I’m all about the sticky notes and flagging pages in my books or magazines, so this item is perfect. Designed in the USA and made in China.
Bow Ballpoint Pen – Estimated Value $10.00
This small ballpoint pen in blue ink has a black base and the top of the pen is a gold bow. It’s slightly heavier than my usual ballpoint pens. I used the ballpoint pen to write the note on the “DON’T FORGET” sticky mentioned above. You can never have too many pens.
I received a small soft cover notebook in gold. The small notebook has 192 lined pages, an elastic closure, a beige ribbon bookmark, and on the back of the notebook an interior back pocket for my receipts or my small miscellaneous items. I have accumulated an influx of notebooks, so I’m set for journaling and note taking for a while.

The Verdict: Trendy Memo has a box value of about $57, not including the tea extras. Their monthly value fluctuates monthly – some months are around $40-$50+. So, keep that in mind if you decide to subscribe. This month’s box was “warm + cozy” and kept me comfy and cozy with the hot tea and snuggling up on the couch relaxing with the flickering of the flame from the candle. This month was a departure from our usual office supplies. I like when their curation is a variety of lifestyle items for my home or personal use. The candle and mug were my favorite items, the sticky notes and pen will be put to good use and I may gift the small notebook. I am pleased with this month’s selection. 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.
