Field Notes National Parks series

My collection of brand new, unused notebooks was growing a lot faster than I was using them and storage quickly became an issue. So when my Field Notes subscription came to an end, I did not renew it. At least, that was until I saw the summer limited edition notebooks: The Field Notes National Parks series. 

Field Notes National Park Series

As you may already know, Field Notes release a set of limited edition notebooks every quarter – available to purchase on its own or through an annual subscription. They are dropping their 44th quarterly release (the fall release) on Tuesday, 1st October, which I’m really excited to find out about. But this post is about their 43rd release because I absolutely adore it. I have from the moment it dropped and now that it’s finally in my hands, I had to shout out about it. 

There is a soft spot in my heart for Field Notes. They put so much effort, thought and love into their products. It’s the finer details that make the notebook what it is for me. Everything from the outside of the book to the inside pages, from the cover to the details on the back. Each and every product is crafted with so much love. Even if I dislike the cover of that quarterly, there is always something to appreciate in them. But this time, I cannot fault it at all.  Continue reading “Field Notes National Parks series”

Ways to #TakeANote – Featuring a Busy B Notebook giveaway

Notes are so useful. I am a huge fan of making notes, for a variety of purposes. Perhaps it is because I have a million notebooks and making notes means that I get to use them. And of course, every new project or purpose needs its own notebook, right? Well for #TakeANote day, I wanted to do a small giveaway to let one of my readers win a few bits and bobs that they can keep with them to make notes. It is my way of saying thank you for your support. Every comment, like, follow that you give me on my blog or social media accounts really helps motivate me to carry on! So I will be doing three different giveaways from now, until the end of National Stationery Week, to just say thank you and support some of the brands that I have loved for many months.

* Papio Press: Tiger Notebooks

Notebooks are probably one of the things that I have too many of…  Nonetheless, I’m always looking for more.  There’s a huge variety of ways that you could use notebooks so they end up being the easiest thing to hoard.  I go through notebooks fairly often, I think.  I like to have one in my bag all the time for on the go notes and then others for specific projects.  So when I came across Papio Paper notebooks, I sort of fell in love.  It was sort of love at first sight, to be honest.  The minute I saw how gorgeous the cover designs were, I was floored.  Today’s review is based on the Papio Press Tiger notebooks.

Papio Press have a huge variety of notebooks designs.  These illustrations are done by the husband and wife team that run the company, which I think is pretty amazing.  It’s one of those small businesses where you know that you’re supporting people’s dreams and livelihoods – and not just funding a corporate giant.  Each illustration is absolutely gorgeous.  I genuinely did struggle to pick just one favourite… So I just gave up!  Perhaps a top ten of those I equally love would be more realistic.

Papio Press Notebook - Tigers

Luckily I didn’t have to make that choice for this review as I was kindly sent a pair to review by Pocket Notebooks, who sent the tigers pack.  These tiger illustrations are stunning. I absolutely love the detail in the designs, and the vivid colours.  A black background really makes these colours jump out at you.

* Say Nice Things: Crystal A5 Journal

Small independent stationery companies have always been close to my heart.  No matter what the industry is, supporting small businesses is important.  Not only are you helping people achieve their dreams but you may also find a new favourite company to shop from.  Often, the best part about finding small businesses is discovering the unique products that they offer.  These products may even be better than the ones offered by the well known brands.  Today, I’m thrilled to be able to share a look into one of the products from a small company called Say Nice Things.

Say Nice Things offers journals and notebooks in beautiful covers.  Today’s review looks at the Crystal A5 Journal*, which has a gorgeous cover in an array of pastel colours.
