Luxury stationery from Executive Pens Direct

I have been a stationery lover for years. I can remember buying new items for each year at school, wanting to get my hands on the newest and most popular pencil case. Now I am no so much up to date on the coolest items, I just know what I like. I am still drawn to stationery in any shop, the more luxurious the better.

Executive Pens Direct

One thing I have never had but have always wanted is a calligraphy set. Executive Pens Direct offered to send me a personalised leather note book and a starter calligraphy set. Something that I can play with, when I got married I really wanted to have my invitations written in a calligraphy hand, however it didn’t happen.

I was sent a Manuscript Masterclass calligraphy set that comes with two pens, numerous ink cartridges, a practice pad and guidelines book, to help you with the writing of each letter. All put within a storage tin, to keep it all safe. It’s going to take some practice, but I will give it my best shot. I love to learn a new skill. I cannot wait to try out different coloured inks and different sized tips, to create something exciting. When I have got to grips with it all, I might even order myself a feather quill style calligraphy pen. They all look fabulous.

Along with my calligraphy set I was sent a lovely medium brown leather personalised journal. The quality is fabulous, my Hubby said straight away you can smell the leather. I have had it personalised with C & P so I can take it with me for various blog event that I attend. The gold lettering really stands out and looks high quality, which I am really pleased about. When you place an order online, although it shows you how it will look, it’s just not quite the same. For my note book, I think it looks so much better than what it did online.

Executive Pens Direct have a fabulous range of stationery items, personalised note pads, pens, calligraphy kits and so much more. If you are looking for Christmas gifts for a stationery lover, then Executive Pens Direct should be your first stop.

 

*Thank you Executive Pens Direct for sending me, my beautiful calligraphy set and note book.* 

I’m a Christmas Hamper lover

I love a hamper, not just a little box of items (which I also love), but I mean a big wicker hamper packed full of lovely items. Then after you have indulged on all of it’s yummy content you are left with a gorgeous wicker basket to use around your home or for taking out for picnics.

With Christmas coming it’s the perfect time to be buying a hamper either as a gift for someone or for yourself. Recently Prestige Hampers got in touch to see if I would like to receive one of their hampers, how could I possibly say no?

A simply delicious Christmas Hamper

I had no idea which of their many fabulous hampers I would be receiving, so when a rather large box arrived, I was very excited to open it. WOW, a fabulous large wicker hamper was sat there. I was sent their Simply Delicious hamper, and simply delicious it really was.

When I first opened the basket, I could see 5 or six lovely items. It wasn’t until later then I was showing my Hubby the hamper, when I realised that there was so much more hidden within the packaging. The Simply Delicious hamper was actually packed with 13 different items including 2 lovely bottles of wine. 

Included within my Christmas Hamper was, Mrs Bridges Ploughman’s Chutney, cheesy nibbles, sweet chilli and lime crisps, cappuccino coffee shortbread, mint chocolate thins, mint cremes, after dinner ground coffee, English afternoon tea bags, Monty Bojangles pistachio marooned truffles, an Ooh! Chocolata minty bar and a box of Jacquot fancy truffle. Not forgetting a bottle of Chardonnay and a bottle of Merlot. So many fabulous items. I cannot wait to dig in and try them out.

A hamper gift for everyone

What I love about Prestige Hampers is that there really is something there for everyone. It could be you are looking for a new baby gift, wedding present, anniversary gift or just a gift to make someone feel loved. I love the idea or ordering a luxury hamper for a romantic picnic for me and the Hubby, to just add a some fresh bread and some cheese, then head out for a date. 

Hampers make a fabulous Christmas gift, I have a few people who are very difficult to buy for. I always like to buy gifts that people will love, not just a buying a gift because I have to. I put a lot of time into finding the perfect gift for family and friends. With the large range of hampers that Prestige Hampers offer, I know I will be able to find something for just about everyone on my Christmas lists.

Thank you Prestige Hampers for sending me out a beautiful hamper, I love it! Plus the basket will be great for keeping my blankets in over the winter months.

My love for unique watches plus win $100 off your very own JORD watch

I love an accessory, for me they make the simplest outfit stand out, I love jewellery, watches, shoes, scarfs and bags. a clutch bag, handbag or even a cute back pack can complete a look. Take the larger items away, and it comes down to the jewellery. I am currently in the process of designing a gorgeous white gold, diamond, opal and ruby ring with a fabulous designer, I cannot wait to see it all finished.

Along with gorgeous fine jewellery, I love a unique watch. My brother in law has a watch collection that most would be envious of, with various designer brands and lots of different styles. However what he does not have in his collection yet, is a wood watch, I do! When I first received my gorgeous wood watch from JORD, my brother in law was among the first people to notice it, which didn’t surprise me.

Ooh, I love unqiue watches

The lovely people at JORD got in touch recently and asked if I would like to choose one of their watches and give my readers the chance to win $100 towards their very own unique watch by JORD. I choose the Cassia, in walnut and rose gold. It’s one of the watches designed for ladies, they also have a unisex collection and mens collection.

When I was first looking though the watches that JORD designs, I was quite surprised to see so many different designs. The Cassia stood out to me straight away. It has a more delicate style strap and the very current rose gold watch face.

My gorgeous new watch looks perfect with so many outfits, teamed with jeans and a plain t-shirt and pumps it even looks great for an evening out with friends or my hubby. It’s so versatile it will be worn all of the time.

For me I love that within the links there is a a hint of rose gold, it just finished the whole watch off for me. Safe to say my Brother in law is putting a JORD watch on his must have list of watches.

If you would like to win $100 off your very own JORD watch, click here to enter. You have until the 19th August 2018 to enter. Good luck.
