When I was a kid, there was nothing more exciting to me about starting a new term than getting new stationery, and even to this day I love, love, love stationery. Whether it be a pencil case, a brand new diary, or even just new pens and pencils, there is something extremely satisfying to me about stationery. Smiggle very kindly sent me some of their new products which will see you through a new school year, or if like me, at the age of 35, just pure stationery bliss.
Starting with the biggy, the gorgeous Seek Reflective Access Backpack in the colour Coral. There are four other varieties available, but I love the neon coral and lavender colours on this particular one. This backpack has it all - a double zip main compartment, two outer zip compartments, two drink bottle sleeves, reflective trim for those darker mornings, an internal padded compartment that will fit a 15inch laptop in, and a buckle attached to the straps to help keep the backpack from slipping off your shoulders. Even though this is aimed at younger kids, I would totally wear this backpack as it is just so fun and due to the high quality of the materials, this is going to be able to carry a lot in it. The neon camo pattern also includes ice creams and donuts so it definitely has my heart. It retails for £34.00 which is such good value for a backpack of this quality and you can find it online at Smiggle here.
One of my favourite things in this haul is the Happy Snack n Stack Containers. There is a pretty pastel version as well as a more sportier pattern too, and here I have the pastel one, filled with patterns of strawberries, unicorns, rainbows, hearts, butterflies and more. When it comes to food, I am such a snacker, and so for me, these are perfect as they can carry fruit, nuts, yoghurt, sweeties and much more. Each one can be used separately or of course stacked, and due to the little handle on the top, they are easy to carry around, and can even fit in one of the drinks pouches on the Seek Backpack. However, I think I am going to buy another one of these to keep my earrings and bracelets in as they are the perfect size to keep them all in one place and will make travelling a doddle. You receive 60ml, 90ml, 120ml and 160ml containers and so you can fill them to your hear's content. The Happy Snack n Stack Containers cost just £5.00 and you can find them online at Smiggle here.
Onto pencil cases, and the Lulu Character Scented Pom Pom Pencil Case, just like the Backpack has it all. There is gold, sequins, glitter, unicorns, a pom pom, and the pom pom even has the most unreal grape scent to it - I am a sucker for anything grape-fragranced. Why Smiggle wasn't around when I was a little girl is beyond me, but this place is a kid's dream. This beautifully embroidered unicorn pencil case contains two zipped compartments which gives you plenty of room to keep pens and pencils etc in one side, and colouring crayons or pens in the other. The sequins are reversible, and the detail on this is just incredible, down to the embroidered glitter, sequins, 3D stars, and so much more, a lot of thought has gone into this pencil case. There are two other colourways available, but what is more fabulous than gold and lilac? The Lulu Character Scented Pom Pom Pencil Case costs £12.50 and you can find it online at Smiggle here.
Whether it is beauty, stationery or more, I love multi-use products, and this Explore Combo Ruler Stationery Set is perfect! There are a total of five different colours and patterns to choose from, and here I have the Pink option. You receive a 30cm ruler, which houses two pencils with erasers on the top, a sharpener and a larger eraser. This lovely little set is illustrated with a French theme, and again, the detail is second to none - even the eraser has a little France-inspired jacket. This is such a handy little kit to pop into your backpack, or simply to have on your desk at work or at home. The Explore Combo Ruler Stationery Set costs £4.50, but considering you wouldn't even need a pencil case with this, and you are getting five products in one, it really is excellent value. You can find it online at Smiggle here.
I hope you have enjoyed this Back To School With Smiggle Haul and I am going to go buy myself another Snack n Stack Set!
All the Loves,
