The Memory Box


After talking to Hollie (www.ItsHollieAnn.com) yesterday, I briefly mentioned my memory box to her, since then all I've thought about is writing a post about my little box of wonder, I'm really unsure about how interesting this will be to read about but I love the little stories behind everything I keep.

Like most of us, my memory box is far from perfect, its a cluttered little thing on the side of my chest of drawers, as pictured above. The lid is struggling to close, so I really need to start thinking about getting another, but I don't know how I feel about replacing Susan, just yet.


So this is a strange one to start with.. This is a pile of confetti from a couple different events I've been too, I think they are from Summer in the City, and Louise Live. I think this shows how much of a hoarder I really am. I'm glad we got that out the way.


Train tickets! some people would print out photos to remember their trips.. Not me apparently, I like to collect the Tickets. One of these trips was when I went to visit my best friends up in Scotland.


I'm sure this one is a little less weird, to keep Cards, I have a stack of a few of my favourite Christmas and Birthday cards from the last few years. I have a sort of competition between all of the cards I've received each year, I only allow myself to keep 3-4 cards so that I don't go overboard. 


This is slightly more weird than the cards - again, but I like to keep envelopes too.. Let me explain! My friend Emily, ALWAYS decorates the envelopes, I always feel like they are too special for the bin, I love looking back at how different she decorates them for my Birthdays and Christmas, and its always a giggle when she hands me my card and its got new doodles all over them. 


I think postcards are so cute! This is one I kept from my parents from when they visited the Vatican City. Receiving one in the post just seems so special to me, I love them!


I am definitely too attached to these to ever bin them, these are lanyards that I've received at gigs that I've been too, the one on the left was from being in the OMFG package at the Busted concert, and the two others are from having Meet and Greet at Emma Blackery Gigs. 


This is a silly one really, but its just a little reminder of a really nice day out I had with some friends, We went to play Crazy Golf, and this was the score sheet, I didn't win though. 


I think this might be another 'Jac the Hoarder' things, and I think its pretty obvious what it is ahaha. I got this on my 18th, I was actually surprisingly desperate for a 'big 18 badge' and I got it! WooHoo!


This is my little polaroid collection, I printed some of these off with my HP Sprocket! I recommend buying one of those so much! I hate how digital photos are now, I think its so much more special to have the actual photos. 


Like the lanyards - a couple of photos upwards, are from concerts or events Ive attended, from concerts to book signings, I just can't say bye to them. 


From my concert tickets, you have a small insight to my music taste, VERY varied! I don't really have a favourite type of music, but I love going to gigs, so any chance I get to go to one I try my best to get there! 


Whenever I go to Liverpool with friends, I always go to the TopShop Photo Booth, the wind machine makes for a lot of laughs! I hope to eventually have such a big collection of these with so many people.. 


Last but not least, these are a few things from my sisters wedding, I love keeping these safe, It was such an amazing day and I'm still so happy to have been a part of it!

I hope you enjoyed having a little nose into my memory box! Catch you around soon!
