National Stationery Week Giveaway

It’s National Stationery Week! and to celebrate I have this wonderful giveaway for all you stationery lovers out there. With stationery there is always something for everyone. Whether you are a pen lover, a doodler or a notepad fiend. I myself am a pen collector, if you leave a pen lying around, whoops it’s gone into my pocket! It’ just one of my habits, picking up other people’s pens. When I was younger I used to love going into the banks and collecting all the pens with the different phrases on.  The awful thing is I never use a pen until it runs out! I’m soon onto the next one.

So onto the giveaway. I have a fabulous set of Stabilo BOSS Original Pastel Highlighters, a set of pointMax pens and baby girl’s favourite – a set of Woody 3-in-1’s to win.

Everyone needs a highlighter. Myself as a blogger use them all the time to highlight important to-do stuff. The pastel shades are great to have.

National Stationery Week 24-30th April 2017

Today marks the start of National Stationery Week 2017. Each day throughout the week is a different theme to get involved with in the world of stationery. I think it’s a fantastic idea to go back to basics and have fun with all the different types of stationery out there.

National Stationery Week is a huge supporter of the #writingmatters campaign which is about how important handwriting is all around the world. I have to say I love to pick up a pen or a pencil and just write. I can write much better and faster than I can type!

You know me I love to write about many different topics, so when a special older lady in my life asked for my advice on fashion tips for ladies of her age, I thought yes I can give it a go. Maybe even write a post about it to help others. As I’m sure there are others out there looking for fashion tips to help with their body positivity. Tips that are different from the generic older lady tag and are for all different shapes and sizes.

Top Unusual Gifts For Father’s Day

This year Father’s Day falls on the 18th June, it will be my husband’s second one as a dad, but his first without his own father around. So I want to get him special, yet unusual gifts for Father’s Day.

I always find the best place to find unusual gifts is online. If you search hard enough you can find little website gems, like UncommonGoods which have a fabulous selection of gifts for men for Father’s Day.

Listed below are some of my favourite finds from there.

Cheese & Crackers Serving Board - Unusual gifts for Father's Day

 

Cheese and Crackers Serving Board.

I love the quirkiness of the board and I’m sure it’s a gift my husband would adore. If you want to go that step further, they also do a personalised chopping board for that extra special gift. Click here for personalised gifts.

“A snack spread simply isn’t a snack spread without cheese and crackers. Highlight the all-important “&” with this text-friendly cheeseboard, made from North American maple and featuring a teak oil finish. When it’s not smartly displaying a hearty feast of brie and rosemary crackers, this handsome design makes an artful addition to your kitchen sideboard or bar tabletop. Made in Dorset, Vermont.”

Moms on the Move: Ways for Stay At Home Moms to Destress After a Long Day

To many who aren’t familiar with what stay at home moms do, the role can seem like a cushy gig. It can seem as if your time is your own, and you can choose to rest whenever you want; you make up your own schedule, after all.

In reality, stay at home moms don’t make up their schedules, at all; it’s the children who make them. Living to the hectic needs of children can be more than exhausting; it can be stressful, as well, with few avenues for stress release.

If this is you and you need tips to help calm a mind that’s been on edge for years, here they are.
