National Stationery Week 2015

In all honesty, until this year I had no idea that there was a National Stationery Week! This year National Stationery Week is from the 27th April - 3rd May, with National Stationery Day being on the 29th April. I am a complete lover of stationery and much prefer to write things down rather than type them out on my phone or computer. I own an organiser, too many notebooks, a weekly planner and pretty much every item of stationery you can think of.

The whole point of National Stationery Week really is to get people writing. Whether it's just writing notes down or writing a letter to a family member/friend it all counts. With the increase in the use of technology people find it easier to send an email or text or just to jot their notes down in their phone. I always find it more fun to use good old fashioned pen and paper, I'd definitely also be stuck without either in my bag if my phone ran out wouldn't I?!

I've been enjoying using my new stationery. The nu:elite A4 notebook* has been so useful for writing down all my notes for college as I'm nearing the end of my course. The nu:elite A7 jotter* has come in handy for jotting down all those blog ideas I get while I'm on the go. There's nothing better than a pocket notebook to carry around with you! I really love the Dodo Book of Wellbeing* & the Dodo Wall Pad*, they're quite different and fun compared to the majority of stationery like this I've had. I haven't began to use the book of wellbeing properly yet but I will when I've finally started exercising and eating how I want to. The last luxurious item I was sent was the Sheaffer Pen*. I haven't had a refillable pen since my pink Parker pen when I was 11. This pen is lovely to write with and I haven't been losing it everywhere unlike my Bic biros I'm used to using.
