Stationery Swap With HelloBexa

Welcome back to Stationery Week on my blog! I am excited to be sharing this post with you. I have collaborated with HelloBexa with a stationery swap before. We both love stationery, so I thought it was the ideal time to collaborate and talk all about stationery.

When I first started blogging two and half years ago, Bexa was one of my first blogging friends that I made and now we are really good friends, which I love! We are both huge stationery fans, so this challenge is so much fun for us. We set a £20 limit and went shopping. I love buying for other people and making them smile. Make sure you head over to Bexa’s blog and you can see the goodies I sent to her.

See if you like these stationery goodies as much as I do:

I love using to-do lists to plan my day and to stay organised. I always feel so much more productive when I am able to check something off when it is completed. I love the font that is used on this pad. I love the pastel colours, they are so pretty. I can’t wait to start using this!

I love colouring, it is so therapeutic. I was so pleased to receive colouring pencils, because lets face it, you can never have enough! I could sit and colour for hours, especially when I am feeling anxious, it is so relaxing. It is something I definitely need to do more of!

I love badges! I have been collecting pin badges since I was young, I still have one from my 8th birthday and I am now 29 ha ha! I love these badges, they are so colourful. I love the positive slogans on them and they are definitely great picks for me! Just bursting with colour and positivity.

This washi tape is so sweet! The little bumble bees are so cute. I love using washi tapes in my planner set ups and my bullet journal spreads. This washi tape is going to be great for more Spring and Summer set ups in my bullet journal. I have A LOT of washi tape, but this is the first one that is just bumble bees, so it is a great addition to my collection.

I haven’t seen a motivation colouring book before, I love the messages each of the pages are sharing. This has come at a great time, as I do not have a colouring book at the moment. This will definitely keep me busy during this lockdown and bring some positivity. Colouring is so calming and is a great self care activity for me. I love that it is not bulky as that can sometimes be so uncomfortable when colouring, this is perfect!

I use pencils in my bullet journal to design different layouts and lettering. The pencils have little reminders and sayings on them, which I think is such a nice feature. I love the pastel colours!

I love using stickers and I use them in my weekly planner set ups, which you can see over on my Instagram. I am looking forward to incorporating them into a weekly spread. Its so much fun adding stickers to a planner or notebook, to brighten the pages and make it your own. I love that they are bright colours and the use of the rainbows.

These prints are all so cute, that bring so much colour. All these prints have positive quotes and statements. I love the use of colour and positivity, I think that is so important. I like to use these type of prints in my blog photos or in my scrapbook. Having positive affirmations on prints are a great reminder for myself. I have even been gifted a card that I can colour in and make my own.

I love all the stationery goodies Bexa has sent me and I am looking forward to start using them. Make sure you head over to Instagram and Twitter and give Bexa a follow!

What is your favourite stationery item Bexa sent me? Have you entered my Twitter giveaway? I’d love to hear in the comments.

  2. I am finding myself leaning towards stationary more of late, obviously any old pad and pen will do when I’m making notes for blogs or researching, BUT I think organising ‘Me’ could do with an injection of colour and fun! Do you subscribe to any stationary boxes, I wondered if you had one you could recommend?
    Fabulous read – really enjoyed it, so I hit the follow button too. 💋

  7. I cannot believe that Bexa got you ALL THIS for only £20, the girl got serious shopping savvy! I love everything but my favourites are the bee washi tape (so cute) and the What If I Fall But What If I Fly card because that’s what I always tell Flora. Everything is so bright and colourful, it’s just bursting with positivity. You two know each other so well, it’s a lovely collab, perfect for bringing happiness right now 🙂 Lisa xxx
