Black Marble Pen Duo from Creoly

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.

April 2017 – World Stationery Day

As most of you will know, I am a massive stationery fan! I have so much that I am never at a lost for notebooks, or anything stationery related for that matter. Recently I found out that today, Wednesday 26 April 2017 is World Stationery Day, I swear there is a National Day for anything and everything now a days. I jumped at the chances of celebrating this day as I am a stationery addict.

I am sure you are all thinking what exactly is World Stationery Day, what is the point of this celebration? Well, after some careful research on their website, I have learnt a lot about the day. It is a day of celebration for the written word and all things stationery. Their aim, to get people all over the world talking and writing about stationery as well as speaking about why writing by hand is important.

Back to School Supplies Haul – Pukka Pad

It’s that time of year again, when you get yourself ready to start a new chapter in your Education story. I will be starting my third and final year of University later this month which of course means, new stationary! I might have gone a bit over board but I haven’t exactly spent a lot of money.

Seeing as I went on some kind of stationary haul, I thought I would share with you today what I brought. This is a company that I keep going back to each year to buy their supplies. They have a variety of products and colours to chose from, the company I am speaking about is Pukka Pad.

Now without further adieu, let’s begin.

One of the main reasons I love Pukka Pad is because around the Back to School time, they have bundles of their different products. I picked up one last year and everything inside came in real handy. This year I noticed them again but they have included some add products.

The one I brought included an level arch file along with poly pockets, display book, A4 & A5 jotta pad, reporter’s pad, pen, pencil and rubber. Now for only £8 I see this as a massive deal! The set is available in two different colours, pink and blue. Now those people who know me, know that I would of course chose the blue!

Next, I brought a double pack of the A5 jotta pads. I seem to go through these like no tomorrow! They are super useful for anything, I seem to get through quite a lot of note pads at University as I like having different pads for different lectures. That way I know exactly where all my notes are.

Now the last thing I brought is something I haven’t seen before but I felt it could really help me out. It is a study book, it has four dividers for the different sections. Dividers are perfect so you know exactly where things are within a pad. Inside you can find a schedule where you can write down all your different classes.

Next there is a section for to-dos/an action plan, how ever you would like to describe it, there’s plenty of spaces here so you don’t fill it up too quickly. In an similar order is a questions and answers section. Now I can see this working out that you write the question and then your teacher can write the answer in the space provided.

Each of the dividers have different types of paper, the first one lined, second squared, third plain and finally fourth flash cards. These flash cards can be teared out of the book so they can come in handy for presentation or just revision. This isn’t a very big book so I doubt it would last for a whole year of education.

I would probably use this for planning and such rather than note taking in class.

I hope you have liked this post. Let me know in the comments if you are all prepared for September. I brought all of these in my local Tesco, I’m not sure if they are available in other stationary shops. I think some of the sets might be exclusives to different stores so I would do some research to see what’s available if your interested.
