Kawaii stationery [Blippo review + giveaway]

I'm a massive stationery nerd, that much should be obvious by now, but what I especially love is cute and Instagrammable stationery, which Blippo does by the bucket load. Seriously. Their kawaii goodies (and it's not just stationery) are so flipping cheap - and they ship to the UK for free! I could quite literally… Continue reading Kawaii stationery [Blippo review + giveaway]

Pretty stationery from Busy B #QueenBusyB

I've got to say, being a Brand Ambassador for Busy B is pretty awesome. I get sneak peaks of the latest releases and regular deliveries of beautiful products to review.

The birthday book… Continue reading Pretty stationery from Busy B #QueenBusyB

Spreading the love with Prestige Flowers

I was feeling pretty lousy after my surgery was cancelled last week. A minor procedure I've been waiting for since September, for a problem I've had since June. So, yeah, pretty lousy. But on Friday morning the postie knocked on the door and handed over this beautiful box. Upon opening, I realised it contained not… Continue reading Spreading the love with Prestige Flowers

Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls Volumes 1 and 2
Books, feminism

Rebel girls

This year I have been inspired by so many rebel girls - writers, politicians, activists, actresses... There's a reason why 'feminism' is Merriam-Webster dictionary's word of the year and why a group of brave women have been named as Time's 'person' of the year. It really is the year of the women. Unfortunately, these stories… Continue reading Rebel girls

'You do you' is an expression I've heard a lot lately, mainly from a sassy AF colleague, and I've longed to have that kind of attitude. Now, thanks to everyone's favourite potty-mouthed anti-guru, it's something I've started to adopt in my day-to-day life. Sarah Knight, author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck… Continue reading You Do You

Planning for 2018 with Busy B #BusyQueenB

I was recently selected as one of Busy B's Brand Ambassadors and to say I was excited would be a huge understatement. Could there be a more fitting collaboration than one between a nerdy blogger and a stationery brand which not only produces functional and fun products (a vital requirement of every item of stationery… Continue reading Planning for 2018 with Busy B #BusyQueenB
