They were kind enough to send me their first box to review, so here’s what was… Read more »

What I actually use every day + the decoy pen pot

First off, please forgive this rubbish photo – definitely not up to my usual standard but let me explain why… Yesterday I was sitting at my desk at work, and started to think about how, when I have SO MUCH amazing stationery at home, I really only use the bare basics at work. I thought… Read more »
