GIFTED | BusyB review & GIVEAWAY

Happy Stationery Week to you all. I am so excited to share all my stationery filled posts with you this week. I contacted several stationery brands to collaborate with them. I contacted BusyB after finding them on Twitter and loved the products they had to offer. I was incredibly fortunate enough for them to agree to collaborate with me and they sent me some beautiful products to review. They have also kindly gifted me some products to host a giveaway so one of you lucky readers have a chance to win.

If you are a stationery lover you are going to adore these products!

This is a weekly planner pad is so helpful. Each sheet has the week broken down into days of the week with a handy to-do list section. It also comes with two magnets, so you can pin each weekly planner to the fridge or a board. Each page can be easily teared so you can pin it to the fridge or board. It also has two glued edges so that you can even use it as a mouse mat. I like using diaries/planners like these as you can see your week in full. It will be easier booking appointments and meetings when you have your week in full and on show. I have been following slimming world and so I am going to use this planner as a meal planner. I love the patterned border, it is so pretty and will hopefully help me stay organised with my meals!



This is the Busy Life red notebook it is part of their popular red collection. This A6 notebook is a bright gorgeous shade of red. It has “its all rosy” statement in rose gold lettering as well as the BusyB logo on the back and side of the notebook. The edges of the pages are also a beautiful rose gold colour, it compliments the red covers so well. Inside the notebook the page says “Lets Get Started” in beautiful brush lettering!




At the back of the notebook there is a pocket which has tabs for you to organise your notebook as well as other stickers. It comes with a secure strap and bookmark. I am going to use this notebook to store all my PR contacts in as well as any business cards, to keep them all together. At the moment I currently jot them down in different notebooks. I love the feel of the paper, it feels high quality and it is the perfect size for the purpose I want to use it for and will fit in my bag with ease.


This is the Busy Life Grey Faux notebook it is one of their new products and it so beautiful. I have been loving grey at the moment so I chose this notebook. The notebook has 12 undated monthly planner pages, this means I can use this to track my blog posting throughout each month. I always write drafts of my blog posts in a notebook before hand, as I have known others to have lost content due to a technical fault. The notebook has tear out pages, I have never had a notebook that has that option to tear out some of the pages in my collection which will be perfect for meetings. Like in the red notebook, this notebook also has a pocket to keep notes in as well as cute and useful stickers to use throughout the notebook. The paper is such great quality and it means ink will not leak through to the next page. I can’t wait to start using this notebook.




Look how pretty this Stylus pen is! I love the design and the colour of the this pen and I love the rose gold! It is a classic black ballpoint pen. I prefer to write in black than blue so I am glad I received this pen. It also has the replaceable ink, how good is that? You can always have this pen in your collection. With this pen it has a soft rubber tip works with touch screens, how clever is that? I haven’t ever had a pen like this before. This will be so useful in meetings! I usually use fine-liners, but this pen is so beautiful. I like that the pen has some weight behind it, makes it comfortable and easy to use. I LOVE this pen.




This is the Busy Life Navy Faux notebook and is another new product. It has beautiful rose gold dots and rings, it compliments the navy so well. I mean everyone needs a bit of a sparkle with their stationery, right? On the back of the faux notebooks they have the logo stamped into the cover, such a lovely way to have the brand name on the products. One of my pet peeves is when you buy a notebook and when you open it the pages do not open fully and it is difficult to write in them, however all the notebooks I was gifted open fully flat and the pages are not too stiff so I can write on them with ease.






I was very fortunate to be sent these lovely products. You have the chance to win a Busy Life Red Faux notebook, a Paper Leopard notebook and a 2 pack of black rollerball pens. I have linked these products in case you can’t wait to try and win them and want to treat yourself.
