This year I’ve decided that I really want to get more organised with my blog and what better way than with adorable stationery? Diaries/planners are probably one of the most important things when it comes organisation, so on my Birthday Trip to York, I bought the cutest and probably the funniest planner I have ever seen. It’s from a company called The Bright Side that have lots of quirky things with really lovely quotes or sayings to make you laugh. On certain days, my planner has little instructions on what to do like, ‘do a press up and fail day’, or ‘start a Mexican wave day’. At the bottom of every week it acts like a personal diary by asking questions like ‘what was the best part of this week?’ which allows you to remember things later on in the year and bring back memories.
It also has inspiring pages at the beginning of every month as a little kick start. I particularly liked the February page as it definitely makes anyone who reads it smile. Recently, I was contacted by Smiggle Stationary, who are just about to open a store up in London in Westfield Stratford on the 20th of February, to review some of their products. I was incredibly excited as pretty stationary definitely gives me more of an incentive to write things down and stay organised, so the 30 Gel Pens ($24.99), with glitter alternatives are probably my favourite product. Colour coordinating is a useful way of staying on top of things and with this set of gel pens I can definitely do that, with the added glamour of the glitter.
I did make the mistake of thinking the Lollipop Eraser ($2.50) was an actually lollipop, rather embarrassing, but thankfully my mental age started to kick in again so I did know how to use everything else. I adore the short zipper pencil case ($9.95) as it’s something I haven’t seen before, basically you can open it from any point at all. Which is brilliant if you have small object that get lost at the bottom and take forever to rescue. I was also sent a mini rules calculator ($9.95), which I feel would be incredibly helpful in school or college as it’s very compact and two essential items in one. I was also sent a Spiral Keyring ($3.95), a Big Eraser ($1.50), a Mechanical Pencil ($3.95) and a 15cm Ruler ($3.95). As well as stationary, Smiggle kindly sent me a pair of sport earphones ($29.95), which was brilliant timing as recently I seem to have lost every single pair. These are probably the most comfortable headphones ever, so cushioned and comfy.
Overall I feel that this stationery is perfect for anyone who likes fun and imaginative things, fantastic for kids, anyone who wants to let their fun side out!
