Drawn to the Pages Designs – Bookish

Hi guys! Happy Monday! As I have mentioned before I am a rep for Drawn to the Pages an etsy shop specializing in watercolored design. She started out with gorgeous watercolored bookmarks, but now she is also selling amazingly beautiful mugs, coasters, keychains, Game of Thrones inspired dragon eggs and we are expecting new surprise products in this months rep package! She has really branched out from just starting a few months ago!

I’m so excited to show you some of her newest products! First are the mugs, that I adore! This first one is a design thats a little tricky for photographing but I still love it! It says Book Nerd and curves around the side of the mug in a chevron pattern. I have this design in bookmark form, and mug form and still need to get it in coaster form. Love it! The second mug is the Hogwarts school crest done in watercolor. So beautiful! And it matches my deathly hallows bookmark!


Next are the keychains. I just have one right now but I’m eyeing a few more in her shop.


Then there are the coasters which might be my new obsession! I have an Expresso Patronum one, an Angelic Rune one and Hogwarts crest one and I’m eyeing the new Outlander ones she just posted to her shop!



And of course she still has her beautiful watercolored bookmarks!


Thats it for now! I should be getting my next rep package any day now and I can’t wait to share it with you! If you follow me on instagram you can see my unboxing videos and first look at the products! And don’t forget my code TAYLORTAKES15 saves you 15% off your order!

Happy Birthday to ME! – part 1

So I just recently celebrated my birthday and several of the gifts my family gave me were just so sweet and thoughtful and so completely bookish I just had to share them.

My brother and sister-in-law got me a pair of London phone booth bookends (long story, short version: I’ve been to London, love London, will someday soon return to London (and Wales!) and retrieve the piece of my heart that I left there) as well as this awesome mug with the “greatest first lines of literature ever” on it.
