* Kaweco Perkeo Fountain pen: Bad Taste

Kaweco Perkeo Bad Taste

Kaweco is a brand that is very close to my heart, if I’m honest.  I have a few of their fountain pens and I love every single one of them.  In fact, I would love several more!  However, they recently came out with a brand new range called the Perkeo.  This range is quite a bit different to their typical style of pens.  So when Pocket Notebooks offered me the chance to review it, I naturally had to give it a test and see if it met my usual expectation from them.  Today, we’re looking at the Kaweco Perkeo “Bad Taste” fountain pen!

* 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.

Launch Giveaway #4 – Fountain Pen Friday

Launch Giveaway #4 status: Closed.

For the final giveaway for National Stationery Week, I thought it would be perfect to tie it in with Fountain Pen Friday.  I absolutely love fountain pens.  There’s something satisfying about writing with a fountain pen and ink.  I’m pretty sure it makes my handwriting a lot nicer than other pens too.  However, not everyone is a fountain pen user.  So for Fountain Pen Friday, I wanted to do a giveaway that was open to everyone but also tied in with the pens I love.  As a result, I’ve chosen to add the “J Herbin Rollerball pen” to the bundle.  This pen has a rollerball nib but uses fountain pen ink.  It’s a great combination, allowing you to experience the variety of colours and fun of writing in ink whilst using a nib that most people are familiar with.  Be sure to check out the other two giveaways running over here.

Launch Giveaway #3 – World Stationery Day

Launch Giveaway #3 status: Closed.

As National Stationery Week continued on, I find myself falling more in love with the industry – if that’s even possible.  Being a stationery addict is incredibly fun.  Unfortunately, it also meant I was so busy that I didn’t manage to get this post up in time.  In honour of World Stationery Day, which was on Wednesday, I wanted to giveaway this second stationery bundle.  You can find the other giveaways for National Stationery Week over here.

Launch Giveaway #2 – Pen and Pencil Day

Launch Giveaway #2 status: Closed.

In true better late than never style, I thought it was about time I did the other three giveaways I promised in honour of launching a new domain.  The first one is a planner bundle, that you can find here.  Whilst these next three will be small stationery bundles, each slightly different.  In honour of National Stationery Week, which starts today, these giveaways will take place over the course of the week.  In addition to this, I will be active on social media and be sharing lots of other exciting news.  You can find links to the other #NatStatWeek posts and giveaways over here.  So without further ado, let’s jump into the first giveaway.
