Busy B stationery!

Busy B stationery!

Firstly, I want to say a massive thank you to Busy B for sending me a bunch of their products. I’m such a stationery lover so a parcel packed with exactly that was a complete dream for me! So I thought I’d share my excitement with you all, because these products are just too lovely not to shout about.

I’m going to start off with the pen, because I am actually in love. Not only is the pen itself gorgeous but it comes with a beautiful little case and I mean, just look at the packaging. I think I might just keep it in the box and put it on my wall, because I just don’t want to ruin it (and I will do, lmao). The pen actually matches the notebook, following the same green and gold theme, which I really like. The notebook is really simple, lined throughout, and I can’t wait to start using. It’ll be perfect for planning blog posts!

I’ve previously mentioned this diary in my February Favourites (go check it out, you know you want to), so I won’t repeat myself too much for those of you that read it. But, it’s a really useful diary. It’s designed for people with super busy lives with its double page weekly schedules, so I like to plan blog posts on one side and then put personal day to day plans on the left. It’s really handy with its pockets and lots of note pages at the back. I also like the fact that it has a little elastic pen holder, because I’m always looking for my pen.

If you keep a journal then you’re going to love these. These little sticky notes and page markers are going to be great for my bullet journal, and I love how cute the page markers are! The sticky pads are so handy too, they come in a little book with an elastic strap around it, so they’d be great on the go. I really wish I’d known about these while I was doing my A-Levels because I was always losing my page in my notebooks and I used to go through sticky pads like there was no tomorrow!

The best part is, Busy B have currently got 15% off with the code BB15 so you can go get all these goodies for 15% less! So go treat yourself. You can visit their site here, or alternatively you can find them on Amazon, just search ‘Busy B’! Thank you for reading and let me know what your favourite product is in the comments below!

Stationery Haul

Stationery Haul

I am a major stationery loving notebook obsessor and recently I bought a load of new bits and bobs and so I thought I’d share them all with you guys – plus it’d give me a chance to practise taking some good pictures. Nothing makes me feel all motivated and organised like some new stationery. So I went in on a little haul on notebooks, pens and pencils and desk tidies etc, and this is what I got!

Wilkos sell these gorgeous copper desk tidy type things – of course I couldn’t resist the copper. They have the pen holders as shown on the left, which also has a section for other stationery type things such as paper clips and post-it notes etc. They also have filing trays, as pictured on the right, and I’ve got this inside my desk draw to keep all my notebooks and papers together. They also have those folder-holder kind of things that I don’t know the name of. They’re all from Wilkos and they were all £2.99 each, not too bad at all! They go perfectly in my bedroom with my copper theme and they’re really useful! Also, the little pot of paper clips and pins is from B&M for just £1 and is really really useful.

 

If you’ve read my last post then you’ll know that I’m loving journals at the mo. These journals are brilliant because they’re inspirational journals – meaning they contain motivational quotes to keep you going. The “Words of Wisdom” journal was actually bought for me by my friend and I believe it’s from TK Maxx (honestly if it’s the last thing you do, go and get yourself one of these because they’re beautiful). The same goes for the “Believe in Yourself” journal, which is from Amazon for £10. This journal just has little one line quotes at the top of each page, but they’re equally as inspiring. They’re both gorgeous and really do their job of inspiring so I’d definitely recommend both!

 

Notebooks are probably in my top five favourite things, probably right after food to be honest. I am a nightmare for buying notebooks that I don’t even need, but I just can’t say no to a notebook. These notebooks were no exception, I mean just look at them. The “Notes” and “More Notes” patterned A5 notebooks are from Tesco believe it or not and they came as a pack of two for just £2.99. They’re really useful for making check-lists and to-do lists as they’re small – I tend to use them to go grocery shopping because they’re the right size for carrying around. However, the A4 “Dream Big” notebook on the right is equally as useful, I tend to use this to plan blog posts and honestly the front cover is just one of the best front covers I’ve ever seen on a notebook. You cannot deny that it looks fab. It’s from Sainsbury’s (which by the way, are amazing for stationery, I always go there for notebooks) and cost just £2.99!

Lastly, I got myself this A4 weekly planner from B&M – which was a bloody bargain at just £1! Again, if you read my last post then you’all see this planner featured, I could rant and rave all day about how useful this thing is and how it’s helped me organise my life. And an added bonus – it looks lovely! You can’t go wrong with one of these for just £1. Then we’ve got the Zoella pencils. I got these actually for Christmas as part of the bag and coffee mug gift set, and I love them. I am quite partial to doodling so I like to keep a few pencils to hand and I mean, these look really cute so..why not? You can get these from Boots and Superdrug, although I’I not sure how much they cost to buy individually – as I said I got them in the set.

These are all the bits and bobs that I bought and I’m loving them all, especially as they were all super affordable!
