Reading in Heels – August Unboxing

As always I was ridiculously excited today when I saw that my Reading in Heels box had arrived on the doormat. Especially excited this month as it is their 1st birthday and they have said it will be extra special. They did not lie. This month I opened it in the garden, not because I was going to pee myself in excitement but because it is a lovely day and I could take nice photos with the flowers.

Obviously don’t read any further if you don’t want spoilers!



This box contains:
– Patchology Eye Gels
– Coconut Lane Marble Notebook
– Vinoos Rose Wine Gums
– Night Navy Pencil
* Recommended read is Ma’am Darling by Craig Brown *


This might already be my favourite box I have received all year!

The pencil and notebook are so cute and I love the slogan down the side reading “A Well Read Woman”

I love the idea of the eye gel patches, I have used heat ones before so I am sure these will be a great treat one evening.

I mean who doesn’t like a posh wine gum? Please…

This months read is Ma’am Darling by Craig Brown, which is a Sunday Times Best Seller. Ma’am Darling looks at Princess Margaret from many angles, creating a beautiful biography of her life, the fame, the parties, the high society, her enemies and friends. I am so excited to read this book. I love anything about the royal family and have always been interested in Princess Margaret.

Reading In Heels is a great subscription each month you receive a book and lots of goodies normally worth a lot of money, especially the beauty products they give out.

Here are my reviews for the last 6 boxes so you can see what I got and what books were inside.

February Box
March Box
April Box
May Box
June Box
July Box

For £12.40 a month you can’t go wrong, a new book to read and delicious treats or pampering beauty products. I always get excited when my Reading in Heels is on the door matt when I get home from work. 

Are you a subscriber to reading in heels? How much did you enjoy this months box? I would love to know. Thanks for reading. Katie x

    This was such a disappointing experience for me. I really looked forward to receiving the box but 1st box was late and the wait time just grew for the other boxes. Shocking customer service. Feel so cheated by this company. Beware!

      Hi Tracy thanks for your comment. I have been using them for a year and fingers crossed so far I have had no issues with them but I have read a lot of bad reviews about missing boxes and bad customer service which is a shame. But I am aware about it thank you. Sad you had a bad experience, I hope you find another book subscription that works out better for you, and if you do let me know 😃

      I too have had a bad experience with their customer service!! They really just aren’t the best at communication. Which is very annoying because their box kind of is the best one on the market!! Have currently cancelled my subscription because of the issues but may have to reinstate it if i can’t find one that’s any better. And let’s hope i won’t have to speak to them again as they are pretty rude too!

        Oh no! Sorry you had such a bad experience. I’ve been finding the boxes lately haven’t been as good as they used to so last month I cancelled my subscription. Yet this month a box came?!!! I looked on my bank and never paid for it so hoping it was a free mistake! I haven’t found another subscription box to sign up to instead of this, if you do find a good one let me know 🙂
