    Leuchtturm1917 Bullet Journal Notebook Review

    I am extremely late to the party with this review. Today I want to talk about the Leuchtturm bullet journal. This is the original “official” bullet journal notebook made from a collaboration between Ryder Caroll and Leuchtturm. Since writing this post Leuchtturm has released a new updated version of the Bullet Journal notebook.  I originally bought this notebook in the before-times (January 2020) for my dissertation module. A lot has happened since then and this notebook has been at my side for a good part of the last 2 years. So today I want to share some of my thoughts on the Leuchtturm bullet journal notebook and help you decide…

    Palomino Blackwing Long Point Sharpener Review

    I mentioned in a blog post recently that I wasn’t a fan of using graphite pencils. As such, I had no real opinions when it comes to pencil sharpeners either. When I bought the Palomino Blackwing pencils I also bought a Blackwing long point sharpener. This is probably the fanciest pencil sharpener I’ve ever bought. I’m surprised I’m even writing this post. For a long time, I’ve just used a scalpel when I need to sharpen a pencil. But this is the first time I’ve ever used a pencil sharpener which is actually good. It is also the strangest pencil sharpener I’ve ever used.  I realise that considering the times…

    Palomino Blackwing 602 Pencil Review

    I have been wanting to try the Palomino Blackwing 602 Pencil for a long time. I’ve heard so many people talk about how they are great pencils to use for art. Obviously, as a person who does art, I wanted to see what made them so special. There was only one problem. I’ve said in the past I am not particularly fussy when it comes to writing tools. It if works I’ll use it. There is one exception to this, I hate using regular pencils. I hate that you have to sharpen them, I hate that the lead wears down, and in many cases breaks meaning you have to sharpen…

    5 Of My Favourite Stationery Subscription Boxes

    One of the things I love doing every so often try some new stationery subscription boxes. This is not a regular occurrence but its enjoyable to get some new stationery items through the post. One of the reasons why I love stationery subscriptions is that I will find new items I would never normally come across.  A few years ago I got a canvas pencil case in a Stationery Selection box. It became my everyday pencil case as I downgraded from the makeup bag behemoth that I was carrying around. This pencil case was not something I would go looking for, but it has become one of the few organisational…

    Mossery Academic Planner | Thoughts & Review

    It has become very obvious to me is that I need to be organised if I want to get all my university work finished. This is something I find difficult doing if I have lots of projects on the go at the same time. As much as I love my bullet journal it isn’t helpful all the time. So I decided to take the plunge and try a Mossery Academic Planner.  I’ve used a number of different Mossery products in the past and have always been impressed by the high quality of their stationery. Over the summer of 2019, I decided to try out one of their Academic Planners. Mossery…
