Back to School 2014 & Giveaway


Back to School, stationery, Bento boxes

Summer school holiday is half way over, are you still keeping your sanity? I'm barely there and can definitely do with some quiet time to get on with my work!

This year I've started sorting Abby's Back to School things out earlier to get them out of the way, but there are still the odd pieces I will need to pick up for her. Clay will be starting preschool as well and I'm just glad that he doesn't really need anything to bring to the nursery! How about you, have you got everything ready yet?

While I write down my Still To Buy list, why don't you take a look at the following and see if any of them is still needed, or can do with more (I can never have enough stationery!). As usual, I also have a fantastic giveaway at the end of the guide for you to win some lovely items to add to the Back to School collection! Enjoy and good luck! x


Back to School, stationery, Bento boxes

Crayola
- Assorted

I think Back to School is not quite Back to School without Crayola products. Quality, affordable, suitable for all ages, children safe and easy to use/ clean, what more can you ask for?

dotcomgiftshop Little Red Riding Hood Memo Pad   £2.95
- Sticky memo pads, comes in 7 designs, each with 20 sheets

How adorable are these memo pads! I wouldn't mind filling my whole notebook with these cute Little Red Riding Hood memos! Sending little messages to BFFs with these will be perfect as well, and you can even send several for a longer message, the receiver just need to piece the "puzzle" together!

dotcomgiftshop Pirate Cutlass Wooden Ruler   £4.95
- Measures up to 20mm ruler made of wood

I've been having problem hiding this from Clay! It's just too cool and cute! I would say he's a bit too young for it as he might accidentally break it (he managed to break a LEGO piece into half, so I wouldn't be surprised), even though the ruler is quite thick and well made. Can you imagine taking this out at school? It might cause some problems haha. Although it looks like a toy, it works well as a ruler and my line is as straight as I wanted it to be. 20cm is a good length too!

Wilko Beau Chic Stationery Writing Set   £2.50
- Comes with A5 exercise book, mini memo pad, pen, ruler, sharpener and pencil.

I really love this design from Wilko! They have about 30 products from the range, and they all look so nice! This set is a bargain, for £2.50 you get a whole set of stationery, and the pen writes really well too!

Wilko Beau Chic Zippa Bag A4   £0.85
- Expandable A4 zippa bag

I like it that this zippa bag can be expanded so you can hold more inside.


The Beau Chic range can easily passed for a stationery collection that comes from a more expensive brand, and the price of this zippa bag wouldn't be 85p only! The range also comes with canvas bag, coin purse and compact brush and mirror set, so the girls can go to school with the whole Beau Chic theme no problem. I also love their Balance and Camper collection!

Wilko is currently doing a 3 for 2 on assorted stationery, so you can get the above for even cheaper if you are quick enough! I'm also giving away a lovely selection from their Beau Chic or Dandy collection, if you like this design as much as I do, you can enter the giveaway at the bottom of this guide for a chance to win. The winner gets to choose to receive the stationery selection from either Beau Chic or Dandy!

Wilko Monster High Sketchbook Set  £2.00
- Comes with 1 sticker sheet, 5 colour felt pens, and 10 colour in sheets and sketch sheets

This is perfect for the Monster High fans who likes to scribble and sketch. It's small enough to carry around, and perfect for break time when you need to refresh your mind.


Back to School, stationery, Bento boxes

Wilko Urban A5 Notebook with Pocket
- 80 sheets, including an expandable pocket at the back of the notebook for notes

A great design for those who like their beat, and the paper quality is quite good too. It's very unfortunate that the Urban range is out of stock, but they have launched the Dandy and Kraft stationery collection that is nice as well. Or you can find Wilko's A5 notebooks collection here.

Becky and Lolo Decor Purple Lunch Box Kit   £19.00
- Includes 1L, 650ml and 300ml lunchboxes, reusable cutlery set (fork, knife and spoon), purple insulated lunch bag and ice pack
- Each lunchbox are air tight and leak proof, BPA, PVC, Lead and Phthalate free, microwave safe (with air vent open) and dishwasher safe; comes with an open air vent and soft seal lid.

Technically this is a lunch box kit fit for a family, but we love varieties and so does Abby, so for those with children who likes a good variety of food, or prefer to keep their food separate, they might appreciate this Decor lunch box kit. It's not that much bigger than some school lunch bags, and you don't have to fill everything up to the brim. I'd use the 1L box for sandwiches so I don't have to squeeze them together, or the 650ml for salad, pasta or spaghetti kind of food, then the 300ml for dried snacks or fruits.

I really like their cutlery set as you can click them together at the base. The ice pack will certainly come in handy when I'm giving Abby dairy food to bring to school.

dotcomgiftshop Chocolate Bar Lunch Box   £3.95
- made with BPA free plastic; 12 x 12 x 7cm
- Not edible

Abby kept asking me whether she can take a bite of the lunch box, silly billy. This novelty lunch box will certainly be the talk of the dining hall at school! It kind of hints that the box is filled with treats, let's hope that the kids won't disappoint when they find sandwiches or pasta instead eh?

Lunch Bag Land Skylanders Swap Force Lunch Bag   £9.99
- Official UK licensed product, fully insulated, food safe, easy wipe lining with sealed seams; comes with name tag pocket and padded carry handle

It's a bit unfair to Abby that boys at school has classed Skylanders as a boy thing. It's really not but if she brings this to school, she'll certainly be picked on. She'd love to though as Skylanders is one of her favourite game and even I love it!

The colour of the bag is fairly unisex and very attractive like a tropical colour. It can easily fit a lunchbox and a bottle inside, plus some snacks too. The lunchbox also comes in Skylanders Giants design, and both has matching bottles and lunchboxes available.

Back to School, stationery, Bento boxes

- Elephant shaped toddler lunch/ snack box with 4 compartments, snap-seal lid and a handle; easy to clean 2 piece design, top rack dishwasher safe

Clay absolutely loved eating out from Trunk! I must say that the snack box is quite big for a toddler, but it'll be perfect to store snacks for throughout a day or even a trip. I do think it works as a lunch box as well, though maybe not for yogurt or lasagne! I'll probably use the largest compartment for cutlery and napkin instead as well. I think Trunk is versatile and toddlers walking around with Trunk in hand will look so cute!



Giveaway

Personal Planner Wall Planner Review + Giveaway


wall calendar, family calendar, personalised calendar

When I first discovered family planners back in 2011, I haven't bought another calendar since. It has to be one with a column for each family member, because this family is getting busier and busier, especially with the kids at school! Each time I would have to fill in my own column name and all the birthdays, but I finally found one that I didn't have to, as it's already pre-printed for me, plus some more!

I received a voucher to spend at Personal Planner from Blog On bloggers event goodie bag, and saw this fantastic Personalised Wall Planner, which is their latest product. I only had to top up £3.95 plus shipping to get it!


wall calendar, family calendar, personalised calendar

wall calendar, family calendar, personalised calendar

Personal Planner Wall Planner (£24.95 plus £2.95 p&p) can be fully personalised, including

- front cover (background and text), language used in the planner (how thoughtful!)
- number of columns (so flexible!),  column title where you can add an image to it as well
- design theme for the inside, the starting month and year, and add special days to the dates including birthdays
- adding modules at the bottom such as Things to Do

The quality of the planner is really good, and I'm so happy that everything in the column and row header are filled so I don't have to write them on one by one each year! There is plenty of writing space which most wall planner lacks and I always ended up writing over other dates. The quality of the papers are fantastic and the print is great as well. I love it that there are pictures on each column, very personalised indeed!

It will be perfect if there is a cardboard back cover to keep the wall calendar straight, although as soon as you hang it up it shouldn't be a problem anymore (I just need to make sure it's well kept until the end of the year), and a wallet for each month to file letters away, although that can make the planner a bit bulky.

Overall I'm really pleased with the wall planner and I can't wait to replace the current one with it!


As it's close to Back to School, the lovely people at Personal Planner is offering one of you to win your very own Personalised Wall Planner! Simply enter through the Rafflecopter below. Good luck! x
