Self-Care Sunday #13

Wow, it's been a busy week. I've done the equivalent of an extra working day from home this week, taken Jenson to his swimming lesson, gymnastics and the park, plus lunch with the family and general mum/housework duties, so there's not been a helluva lot of time for me/self-care. Fortunately, I started a gratitude journal… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #13

National Stationery Week 2017: Signature Saturday [Say Nice Things giveaway]

Last year, when Say Nice Things offered me a journal and notebook… Continue reading National Stationery Week 2017: Signature Saturday [Say Nice Things giveaway]

National Stationery Week 2017: Fountain Pen Friday [Lamy AL-star review and giveaway with Cult Pens]

By now it's pretty clear that National Stationery Week is my favourite time of the year (#nerdalert!) but, I've gotta be honest, Fountain Pen Friday made me nervous at first.
