Get Organized With Smiggle Stationary

Get Organized With Smiggle Stationary
An Australian stationary company called Smiggle website emailed me a few weeks ago asking me if I wanted to advertise their company on my blog. I am a sucker for stationary to be honest so I was thrilled to be asked this.
Smiggle are opening their first UK store in Westfield Stratford on the 20th of this month! this then will be followed by further store launches in Reading, Brighton and Kingston. so now is the perfect chance for all you UK stationary geeks to get online and see what they sell!

I didn't want to just advertise their brand I wanted to put a spin on it on useful ways to use Smiggles stationary, so I came up with an idea fitting with having a blog - how to get organised with blogging. I personally do some of these things myself whether I am travelling or at home, I always make sure I have some sort of stationary to jot down some blogging ideas as you never know when ideas pop up!

The stationary above is what I received by Smiggle I was really overly impressed. I was not expecting such amazing stationary! especially those gel pens..90s kids can reminisce to the retro memories!?

Firstly, grab some headphones! - plug them into your iPod or phone and put on your favourite music! this is a good way to put you in the mood for blogging or get some motivation as we all know at times we aren't always up for writing posts!
These headphones are really comfortable as they have soft material all around the head area, also the music is really good quality that comes out of them just as good as expensive headphones.

This pencil case is so cool all the zips open so their is no need to look for one zip..I am mind blown!

Sometimes I write lists on what to buy then when it comes to hauls or reviews I can look back on the list and tick what I have mentioned on my blog!
This just makes everything more neat and when I have a blogging brick wall of no ideas I can look back on my lists.

Now, I ain't one for writing in pencil unless I really need to - its normally fine liners or normal pens. But sometimes it can look quite boring right? 
Smiggle sent this amazing box of gel pens out which has allowed writing things down more appealing and fun. These are handy for if you want to write lists on different things but be organised about it. Also who doesn't love gel pens?! these just remind me a lot about my childhood years!  I love the retro being brought back it just makes writing things down a lot more fun!

Another retro stationary I had growing up was pens that had a variety of colours you could pull off and change. Never came across a highlighter one before but oh my goodness I am impressed. I love this! and I plan to carry this to uni with me along with highlighting things I like in magazines. It is really handy to have one of these with all colours on as lets face it one colour gets boring!

The dreading part for our bank accounts is writing down how much each item you want to purchase is and scribbling out things that are way too expensive. This is handy to have to calculate your total bill and know what to cross off your lists or to keep for another month!  
This comes with a ruler wrapped around it which is flexible and if you's have been reading my posts for awhile you will know I love flexible products a lot. 
Is it just me or does this remind you of Minnie Mouse?

Those are some blogging tips on how to get more organised instead not just with writing things but with stationary too. I am really grateful Smiggle contacted me about this opportunity as I had so much fun with writing this post and using the actual products themselves. 
Definitely check their website out if you love quirky stationary or if you want to bring back those retro pens we all used to own!

  8. I'm a sucker for bright colored pen. If uni allowed me I would do all my assignments in pink pen, honest. Those headphones look really cool, now we'll just have to wait until Smiggle opens up shop in the Netherlands.
