~Mind-Speaks: Stickers~

I’ve really been embracing this whole vlogging thing lately. As soon as I got my new camera, I’ve just been filled with the desire to film more videos. With that comes video ideas and a lot of planning them out.

Mind-Speaks has been pumping out some great sticker sheets, and so I made a video showing them off on my channel.  I love them and  Mija has been putting in so much hard work into these. She personally makes all of these sheets, I only help a bit with ideas/doodles but she handles the design of MS as well as all the packaging. She’s a packaging wizard! I’m pretty proud of her and these stickers and hope we can continue to make some cute stationery together.

Here’s the video! Please check it out, and for being a reader of my blog / subscriber to my channel here’s a coupon to the store for 10% off! Thanks so much! If you do purchase, please share the items to your instagram/twitter/blogs.

Thanks for reading/watching.

~Fountain Pens~

Stationery is one of my favorite things. I am addicted to new journals, stickers and pens. I recently opened the door to fountain pens. I made a pen video a few months back and I mentioned how I’ve been on a quest to find a pen that I could refill and just use for years to come. I wasn’t a huge fan of fountain pens because I wasn’t quite sure if I would use them often. But I purchased an Ooly one and fell in love with the cartridge system and then purchased one in green.  After that, I knew I wanted to expand my fountain pen knowledge and down the rabbit hole I went.

Kaweco is the brand I set my sight on. Especially, the sport series in mint. Mint!!! It was such a cute pocket sized pen that I just HAD to get it! I made a first look video last week and plan on featuring it in a review video once the accessories that I ordered for it have arrived…that’s right. Accessories. I told you, rabbit hole! But if you’re as interested in fountain pens as I am, then getting all the stuff is just half the fun.

I’ll fill you in on this fountain pen journey, that’s all for now….until next time. 🙂

~Review: Olive Traveler’s Notebook~

 

Alright! I know I said that I wouldn’t need/get a standard size TN…but I did and it’s gorgeous and I love it! I bought it off of Amazon from Asian Vintage TN but here is her Etsy shop, I think it’s easier to navigate. I’ve been obsessed with writing in it, I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with the middle insert. I might do another blog planning insert or a scheduler? Not necessarily a planner though, I’m still using my bullet journal. I might eventually combine the bullet journal with this one, but not until I finish the notebook I’m currently using and also after I finish the next notebook I purchased early. -.- I may be a little hasty when purchasing notebooks. It’s an addiction, I know. But as long as I use the items I’m purchasing then I can accept this addiction…it’s harmless, right?

I’m definitely a stationery addict. My tagline is, I couldn’t help myself. What are your addictions?

Thanks for watching and reading.

~Giveaway~ Zenpop

There are a ton of things that make me happy. Today I’d like to mention something that really brings a smile to my face. Stationery!!!

I recently just purchased a ZenPop box from Japan. I haven’t received it yet but I cannot wait to get it! They give you plenty of peeks into the items you are getting which I am a huge fan of. I like knowing what I’m getting, but having a few surprises is nice too.

They have different themes each month, I purchased the Animal Friends pack? They are including kitty washi tape so I was sold! I also chose this box because it wasn’t something you actually had to subscribe to. You purchase them monthly. I don’t like having to remember to unsub because some monthly sub boxes aren’t always a hit. I’m sure it’s hard when it comes to putting one together and figuring out what to put in it and whatnot but I guess it depends on the type. A stationery box is perfect for me, a book one, where the book is kept hidden…not so much.

And ZenPop isn’t simply a stationery it’s a Japanese stationery box! Another reason why I just signed up for this month’s box. There’s a Sailor Moon pen included and I just had to say yes. This box includes 12 items! And the price is $29.50 FREE shipping! Not too expensive, but not too cheap either. And for exciting news! ZenPop has decided to do a giveaway where you could win one of their past boxes and I would love to win! But I also have a feeling I will be a repeat customer of future boxes. If you’re a stationery addict, then I think this is the box for you.

There’s also a food, and beauty box too, so if you’re not into stationery perhaps those interest you more? I have a list of online sub boxes that I want to try out, so I’ll probably update about that more later. What kind of sub box are you more interested in?

Thanks for reading!

 

~Review: Traveler’s Notebook + Smart Fit Pencil Case~

I finally bought myself a real leather Traveler’s Notebook. I wanted a cheaper alternative rather than buying the more pricey and popular Midori…I believe it’s just Traveler’s Company now though. I purchased the Robrasim Pocket sized Traveler’s Notebook in the color coffee and it’s adorable.

I first purchased my Webster’s Pages Color Crush Traveler’s Notebook because it was a bit more affordable, and I really liked the pockets that the Color Crush offered. Bought it in the color mint, even though they have a ton of new colors lately, I’m happy with it. I decided I wanted a passport sized TN and so I searched through Youtube and then I searched through Amazon. I found Robrasim and decided to give them a chance. Aside from them taking awhile to ship it, it still arrived fairly quick, but I didn’t do too much research on the company.  I don’t think I’ll be using this for in depth journaling, but I’m excited to see how I end up using it. Below you’ll find a video review, I might go on for a tad too long, but believe me, it was even longer than that. I like to talk. 🙂 So if you’re interested, feel free to watch that below.
