If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s I love stationery! Everything from notebooks and pens to planners and journals. Also, who could say no to pretty and cute stationery? I don’t show you my love enough here on An Ocean Glimmer, I’m going to try once in a while to create a stationery roundup, haul call it what you will. Maybe even once a month!
For today, I’m going to be sharing with you a small collection of stationery. Recently I entered a giveaway from Soffy | The Mum Affairs and I won! Of course, I couldn’t say no to entering a stationery giveaway, especially as there were some beautiful items. Before we get into what I received, I just wanted to thank Soffy for hosting the giveaway and the beautiful items.
I adore this time of year, it’s always been my favourite, not because it’s getting colder thanks to Autumn just around the corner but Back to School! I left school in 2011 but each year I still get excited to see what’s about because I’m a massive stationery addict. My all time favourite stationery brand is Pukka Pad and two years ago, I reviewed a small selection of their products.
Pukka Pad can be an expensive brand, I seem to always purchase them when they’re on offer. I understand not everyone can afford brands like Pukka Pad, for Back to School this year I wanted to share brands that are good and colourful but at reasonable prices. That’s why when I came across a stationery range from Poundland, I knew this would be perfect to share with you.
If you know me well, you will know just how much of a fan I am of stationery! I always seem to be picking up new items, I just can not help myself. So when Creoly asked me if I wanted to collaborate with them, I jumped at the opportunity. I am now a part of their “Early Bird” Review Club, I will be receiving some of their favourite products to review here on An Ocean Glimmer. I am very excited about this collaboration and I can not wait to see where we go together.
Before we go into my first product I received, let me tell you a little bit about the company. Creoly are a small team of stationery addicts who work to source and offer a range of stationery for both personal and business customers. They offer a range of products from Notebooks & Journals to Pens & Pencils. As well as the smaller items like Paper Clips, Binder Clips and Sticky Notes. They sell their own branded items and big names like Filofax, Leuchtturm1917 & Moleskine.
Subscription Boxes are becoming more popular amongst everyone, as no matter what your interests are, I guarantee there will be a box out there for you. As you know, I am subscribed to Infinity Crates, a crate filled with entertainment goodness. I love receiving this every month, as I never know what I’m going to receive until I open it up.
I came across a new Subscription Box, Artemis & Xena, I immediately fell in love as I love the concept of the box. Ani founded Artemis & Xena after struggling with her mental well-being as a teenager and during the first year of University. A change of thinking and lifestyle helped her to get through her difficulties, therefore she wants to help other women who may be facing difficulties too using what helped her.
Welcome to another edition of Planner Girls Collective. If you missed a previous edition, you can find them all here.
This week’s topic is Favourite Stationery Stores. I’m quite lucky with where I live, as there’s a wide variety of shops where I can pick up stationery. I am always spoilt for choice when it comes to new stationery.
