5-11 year olds can win big in a colouring competition with BIC & Mumsnet

This summer, BIC and Mumset have teamed up to create a fantastic competition for children aged 5-11. The competition aims to celebrate how awesome and creative children can be by inviting them to submit their most imaginative artwork to be in with the chance to win a £50 BIC® bundle and get their artwork featured on a billboard in their hometown! I personally think it’s really important to help children being out their creativity and what better way to do it than with drawing and colouring. I also think it would be fantastic to see your child’s, or your own,

TOAD Diaries Notebook and Diary Review & Giveaway

Doodle Collection Notebooks Review

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have quite the collection of notebooks. The truth is, I’m a bit of a stationery addict and I love getting something new! Doodle Collection isn’t a brand that I’d heard of before recently but I’m very glad I have now. I chose two notebooks and they stood out to me immediately. I chose the Idea Beige Diary and Goals Brown Diary which are from the Motivational range. I am always looking for ways to help making blogging and scheduling easier so picking these two notebooks was a really easy choice. Even though I

London Stationary Tour Part 3

My sister Natalie is back today with the third and final part of her review of the London Stationery Tour!   Waterstones 199 Piccadilly Most Waterstones have stationery sections, but the stationery section in this one is big enough to be its own shop. I love bookshops so i tend to pop into Waterstones whenever I see one (there’s quite a nice one near The National Gallery for example) and I always have a browse of the stationery section, since they all tend to sell a nice range of different products. This Waterstones just seems to sell everything stationery related

London Stationery Tour: Part 2

My sister Natalie is back today with Part 2 of her review of the London Stationery Tour! Liberty of london Great Marlborough Street Liberty is worth visiting in and of itself, let alone for the stationery department. The store itself is beautiful and they sell a wide variety of high market products, from the usual perfume, make-up and clothing, to antique jewellery and home wares from around the world. It’s expensive but not always unaffordable. The home ware department is really quirky and interesting and although a lot of it is well beyond what i can afford there is plenty

Mum’s Office 2017 Diary

If you’ve been following us on the blog or social media recently then you’ll know that I am a massive stationery fan. Something I always have on the go is a diary but I seem to have had trouble finding the right one for me… until I discovered Mum’s Office. Although the company is called Mum’s Office, the products available are in no way just aimed at mums and the products don’t say it on them either! We have the 2017 version of the Mum’s Office diary and I absolutely love it! The diaries come in a whole range of

The London Stationery Show

I’m sad to say it is the last day of National Stationery Week. I hope you’ve enjoyed all of our posts this week and found some fantastic brands and products. The highlight of National Stationery Week for me was attending The London Stationery Show in London this week. The London Stationery Show is held at the Business Design Centre in Islington and is open to press and retailers. The Business Design Centre is super easy to get to. It was a short 5 minute walk away from the Angel underground station. I took me sister with me as she’s been posting for

Spring Stationery from Flying Tiger

One of the things that I really love about stationery is how different it all can be and how diverse different companies are. Flying Tiger is one of those brands that always comes out with something that stands out. It is the end of April now so technically it’s Spring, even if the weather doesn’t want to agree! Flying tiger have come out with some very Spring inspired products this year and they’re bound to brighten up any bag or desk! I am so in love with this grass covered lined notebook. I’m not sure I have ever seen anything
