Pocket Notebooks-Esmie,Rhodia & Papio Press Review

Forget the App, there’s a Pocket Notebook for that…

The lovelies over at Pocket Notebooks very kindly sent me some notebooks to review.

Who are Pocket Notebooks?

Pocket Notebooks are on a mission, to remind people about those good old days, when we didn’t reach for our phone to make notes-when a pocket notebook was all we needed.

The noise and insistence of technology is constant. A notebook takes us to a world that we choose. A world where the only sound is our sound.

World Stationery Day-National Stationery Week

Today is Day Three of National Stationery Week!

Just in case you didn’t catch yesterday’s National Stationery Week post for Get Crafty Day, have a nose HERE Get Crafty-National Stationery Week!
Throughout this week, I’ll be sharing a post a day on here, with some of my top choices for your stationery needs, and some of our family favourites!

Today’s is actually World Stationery Day!!!

To coincide with this momentous day, we’re including a real variety of stationery products!

First up are these absolutely awesome Dog in a Box Page Markers.  I don’t think I can do these justice-they’re too cute for words-just look at their little heads poking over the top of my project book from Wilko!
From Mustard, each design holds 50 page markers, so you get 100 in a pack of two designs.
The stickiness doesn’t wear off too fast, meaning you can take them off of one page and re-stick them back onto another!
I literally can’t stop looking at the little doggie’s faces peeking out at me!!!
These are priced at only £4.95*!  Head over to Mustard’s website to buy them HERE!

The project book itself holds some of my future plans.  My blogging goals, our holiday plans, our Wedding renewal plans and our Family Honeymoon ideas!  As you can see (but the children cannot-it’s a secret), I use a lot of pens and pencils to decorate each page (yep, I’m a ten year old!).  One of my favourites is this truly unique gel pen from Maped.

I say it’s unique, because I’ve genuinely never used anything quite like this before.
Not only are they easier for little hands to use because of their unparalleled gliding sensation, but they’re also twistable, meaning clean hands-yes parents of messy children, clean hands!!!
Not just that (this is by far the best bit), they’re watercolour crayons!  Add water to the picture, and, voila, watercolour painting!
I literally cannot recommend these enough!  They’re available in packs of 6 (£4.19*), 10 (£6.39*) or 12 (£7.90*) colours and are SO worth the money.  To purchase, click HERE.

In one of my many other notepads, I keep my blog notes and sort money related things out.  I LOVE to highlight stuff (true stationery geekiness coming through now), and this cute little highlighter from Edding is just the ticket!
With a refillable water-based ink in neon colours, they are also non-slip and ergonomically shaped to make writing a comfortable experience!
They are available from Amazon in 7 different colours, for £3.95* and you can get them by clicking HERE!

So, the notepad addiction.  Anyone who knows me personally, will be able to confirm, I have to be organised.  I love lists, I always have lists about my lists-and that kind of list dedication (yep, that’s a thing), needs lots of notepads!

This Nu Elite Prestige Jotter is beautiful.  This one is A7 size with a black PU leather finish and has a handy elastic pen holder stitched into the inside.
There is also an elasticated closure to secure the pad (which is handy as I’m one of those people that stuffs all manner of things inside the pages too).

At only £3.99 from Amazon, this jotter is so worth the money-to get yours click HERE!

The other notepad is pretty much a bloggers dream.  From Sheaffer, the inside is laid out for bloggers to write their scheduled post plans in, and there are plain pages for notes (or lists-whatever takes your fancy).  The edges of the paper glisten with silver, which makes for a beautiful finish when you close the book and inspect the sides with the pages together.

Currently, the Sheaffer website is under a major reconstruction-but put it in your bookmarks and have a look when it’s up and running soon.
