Postmark’d Studio: A Review

If there’s one thing I love more than cookies, it’s snail mail. In fact, here are six reasons why I still send snail mail (and why you should too)! While it’s easy enough to grab a piece of paper and send a handwritten letter, Postmark’d Studio is making it even easier for y’all! Spread the love during the ultimate season of giving . . . treat an old soul/stationery nerd to this monthly subscription box!

What will I actually get? Well, it’s a surprise each month . . .  but you’ll get a variety of cards, pens/pencils, and stamps! Everything you need to send some sunshine in the mail comes in this little box! This is what I received in the November box:

Four lovely cards, a set of 5 postcards, 2 gel pens, 1 pencil, 5 letter stamps, and 5 postcard stamps. If you were to buy all of this at a stationery retailer like Paper Source or Papyrus, you’d certainly be paying more than $25.

Playa de los Muertos

I have never seen water this clear in my life.

This is Playa de los Muertos.

Playa de los Muertos quite literally means the Beach of the Dead.

Perhaps it holds that name because visitors think they’ve died and gone to heaven . . .

BUT LOOK! . . . A sign of life!

Maybe it was given that name because of the trek to get to the actual beach . . .

. . . I only fell once 😂

Seriously, the beach is GORGEOUS and worth it but it’s a downhill trek so make sure you’re wearing solid shoes as it’s a bit rocky. (I was not prepared.) The beach itself is all pebbles as well, so keep that in mind if you plan on visiting!

I still can’t get over how clear the water was. #MediterraneanLife

So, where does the name Playa de los Muertos really come from? 

Apparently, its name comes from the many sailors who perished in the seas and washed up here.  At least it’s a beautiful place to die . . .  👻

If you’re considering giving up eating your four-legged friends, please keep on reading!
