When I think of “Field Notes”, I instantly picture one of their pocket notebooks. Whether it’s their Kraft series or a limited edition version, it’s always a pocket notebook that I think of in the traditional sense of the word. I think of the 5.5″ x 3.5″ staple bound pocket notebooks that they commonly produce.
If you didn’t already know, Field Notes release a special new limited edition notebook every season. These limited edition versions are only printed in small batches and once sold out, are gone. The number of packets printed for each edition is listed on the website, as well as on the inside covers of the notebooks themselves. And let’s be honest, every time they do something new and amazing. They play with the quality of the paper, the colour of it, the cover material, perforation and many more things as they look to create new exciting products. It’s always exciting to see what they come up with every season. In Summer 2016, they launched the Byline edition – and like always, it was a surprise. The Byline edition is completely different to the other series in that it is a Reporter’s Notebook. A proper top spiral bound flip book sort of reporter’s notebook. Today’s post will be a look into the Byline edition. Read More »
In honour of the Erin Condren launch of the new 2017 life planners, I have dedicated two posts to it (yes, TWO posts in ONE day?! Say whaaaat? I know, very unusual for me… but it was just way too long for one post). You can find part one over here. If you are new to EC life planners, I would recommend you pop over to part one as that will give you a good overview of what the life planner is and some photos of the inside.
Here, I am going to talk more about the new features and what I love (or don’t love) about them! So I am assuming you’ve read the first post or already know about Erin Condren life planners…Read More »
This week something happened that most of the planner community will have heard about: the Erin Condren launch! EC launched their 2017 life planners and the internet pretty much crashed… Yeah that’s right, their launch crashed the internet. Seriously.
My Facebook feed was full of talk about it. Planner groups on Facebook would have tons of daily posts about it (they are still happening!).
So, I think it’s only fair that I dedicate this week’s post to Erin Condren and the beautiful community they have helped to build. Now I couldn’t get all of this to fit in one post, as it would be too long to encompass all of this amazing into one… so I’m splitting it into two parts. Today is part one of the two part series. This will be a quick flip through my 2016 EC life planner and initial thoughts from it…
I also have a discount for you later in the post so stayed tuned!Read More »
This haul is a bit overdue, as I purchased these items a little while ago! However, these items from CheekyBoo are just so stinking cute that I couldn’t bring myself to use them and ruin their beauty. I’ve finally managed to get around to opening them up & testing them out and thus, can now review the items and let you know what I think.
The order arrived really quickly and more importantly, it arrived in super cute packaging! The items inside were wrapped so nicely too that it was more like opening a present than an order. I really love when companies take a few moments to make your order a little bit more special. The thought and extra time they put into wrapping your items nicely shows how much they value your order, in my opinion. CheekyBoo wrapped the items I ordered in really cute and pretty tissue paper, using some washi tape to seal it up. Without much further ado, let us get into the items that I purchased. These might just include perfect presents for Christmas!Read More »
I’m super thrilled to be able to take part in the Rhodia paper project again. If you missed it, I had the opportunity to sample the Week 19’s papers which you can read about if you click here. Go on, I’ll wait. Back? Well this time, we have different samples entirely. For Week 21, the samples are two A4 sheets of paper from the No. 19 Rhodia Pad – one in white and the other in yellow. I actually don’t use A4 pads very much anymore and the largest I seem to go is A5, for the most part so it’s great to be able to sample these bigger sheets and get back into it. Both sheets are lined, 80gsm sheets of paper. And quite honestly? I am quickly falling in love with the quality Rhodia bring every time. Read More »
I am quickly falling in love with Pocket Notebooks and the convenience of having one of them on me at all times. This is a market that is dominated by the names of Word Notebooks and Field Notes but the Calepino Notebook* is not one to dismiss.
I’ll be honest with you, before seeing these I had never heard of Calepino before and was curious to see if they could compete in this market. Tony over at Studio Alt introduced them to me and as I was contemplating purchasing a pack, I got a message saying that there’s “a little something on its way” to me. And this was the Calepino Notebooks, No. 4 Papier Dot Grid. It was such a pleasant surprise so thank you, Studio Alt! These little badboys have been made in France – and they are definitely teaching me that I need to look out for stationery stores when holidaying across Europe because it would be so worth it!

Happy Paper Club is a monthly subscription service from the Green Gables that delivers boxes full of stationery and papery goods. You can opt for a Taster Box, where you purchase just one box, to give it a test before you subscribe. Or you can dive straight in with a rolling monthly subscription or a six month subscription. I chose to go with a taster box just to get a feel for the box and see if it is something I want to invest more money into. The July box ships out towards the end of July so I actually received the box in August but I’m going to open the box up now with you and share my thoughts on it.Read More »
Paper lovers have the opportunity to sample some different Rhodia papers and test them out, thanks to the Rhodia Drive’s Paper Project. As part of this project, I was one of the lucky participants that has been given the chance to test out the Week 19 Samples. This sample contained 2 sheets of graph ruled paper from the Rhodia Le Carré pads – small and large. The paper is 80g, white graph with violet coloured grid lines. I have never tried out Rhodia paper so I am definitely pleased to have been given the opportunity to do so for free and to share my thoughts on it.Read More »
During National Stationery Week, there was a Notebook Day and in honour of that day, I just couldn’t resist ordering two notebooks from Chroma Stationery. I’ve been using those for a little while now and so, thought I would share my opinion of them along with some pictures. If you have not heard of Chroma Stationery before, it’s a website where you can purchase fully customised notebooks. Everything from the cover of the notebook to the paper inside – all included in the price so you know what you’re paying from the onset.Read More »
