My week #8

As it was Shrove Tuesday this week I went with a foodie/cooking theme for my pages.  I also used my favourite colour combination of pink and mint because Becks from Just Keep Pinning sent me this lovely mint glitter washi tape.

My week in my Filofax #8

I have lots of things on my to do lists this week but they were all quite simple so they took very little time to complete.  It was also a school holiday which meant I have had a chance to catch up on everything and spend some time relaxing with my children.  It has been nice only leaving the house if we wanted to instead of having to drag ourselves out there in all kinds of wet weather!

My week #7

I might have gone a little over the top with my Valentine's theme this week, especially when I was more excited about the return of the Walking Dead!  I do think it looks quite cute though. 

My week in my Filofax #7

Things are still crazy here, my husband's new job is keeping him pretty busy so I am relying on my planner even more than usual to keep me on track.  I feel like I'm getting my rhythm back though so hopefully things will feel normal again soon!

My week #6

There are only two weeks left until the beginning of spring and I am still trying to hurry it along!  

My week in my Filofax #6

I went with a cheery yellow theme to get me through the last of the grey days and I found this quote on Pinterest:

Spring will come and so will happiness.
Hold on, life will get

It really expresses how I am feeling right now.  The 1st March better be a glorious day or I will be disappointed!

I am still using my hydrate & am/pm stamps to help me drink more water through out the day.  I can only check the circle if I have drank three glasses. I'm not managing six glasses every day yet but I am drinking more than I did last year so the stamps are working!

Have a great weekend!

Cool Pencil Case goodies

Hello!  The lovely people at Cool Pencil Case have sent me another box of cute goodies to show you. They are all red, pink and heart themed just in time for Valentine's Day!  

My favourite thing is this Sealed with a Kiss Pencil Pouch which looks like a love letter, sent via Air Mail.  I love the cute kitty stamp and the heart stamp that makes it look like it has been through the postal system.

Sealed with a kiss pencil pouch

The back of the pouch carries on the letter theme, looking like an envelope that has been sealed with a wax stamp.  The lace trim is also very pretty!

The zip pull has a little gold Eiffel Tower charm attached to it and a ribbon in the colours of the French flag.

Little Eiffel Tower charm

This is the case filled with all of the bits and pieces Cool Pencil Case sent me but it can hold a lot more, it is incredibly roomy!  The underside of the flap is lined with a cream silky material and closes with a magnetic popper as well as a zip so it is nice and secure.

Filled with goodies

Now on to the rest of the items!

There is a Sweet Dream Time mechanical pencil which is pink, black and white with a little heart on the clip and has one of my favourite patterns on it, polka dots!  I think it looks very stylish!  The second pencil is the Winged Hearts one which is so cute, my eldest daughter has already called dibs on it.   

Deco tape, mechanical pencils & washi tape

I have used the Rilakkuma decorative sticker tape and the Heart Doodles washi tape to decorate Valentine's week in my Filofax.  I really like how they look together!  The Rilakkuma tape is very easy to use.  You just take the lid off, click the top down and hold the pen where you want the stickers to start and then drag it to the right.  When you want to finish you just lift the pen up, it really is fab!  The doodled hearts washi looks adorable too.

Washi and deco tapes in use

If you fancy treating yourself Cool Pencil Case have given me a code to share with you for 15% off your order on their website.  This code is valid until the 15th February 2015 and on a minimum purchase of $30.  Just enter this code at the checkout:

My week #5

I am still trying to make my pages look happy and colourful in preparation for spring.  I really hope it is just around the corner because I am fed up with all this frost and freezing weather! The only thing keeping me going at the moment is lots of tea and coffee and the occasional hot chocolate.

My week in my Filofax #5

If you haven't entered my big giveaway yet, you have until 12pm on Monday 9th February (GMT) to do so.  I am still working my way through all the comments but if you have commented on the post you will definitely be entered into the draw so you don't need to worry if I haven't replied to it yet.  It is just taking me a while to get through them all!

You might have noticed that I am not publishing my My Week posts at the beginning of the week at the moment.  My husband has started a new job recently and it has thrown my usual routine out of the window!  I am still trying to get used to his new hours and feel like I am spinning lots of plates and running here and there to keep things going but once we settle into a new routine I should be able to get back to normal again.

Thanks for stopping by!
