This week I received the sweetest valentines gifts from Pen Heaven. I was sent a Bomo Art Medium Journal and a special edition Lamy Al Star Fountain Pen. I am so excited because I love stationary more than any other type of gift and these are perfect as I can use my new Journal to help me record the things I am doing in my current weight loss journey.
Over the past few years my husband has bought me chocolates for Valentines, however given I am trying super hard to stick to my healthy eating plan I was super pleased to be able to receive such lovely gifts, items which are really gorgeous and unique and make me feel special.
The last time I had a fountain pen, I was at high school. I loved them and remember going to the local stationary shop in Barnsley town centre to choose one. Once I moved to New Zealand I never used a fountain pen again, although these types of pens are something I really like to use. In fact I took my fountain pen inks to NZ with me as a teenager but no one used them in school or anywhere else for that matter and my inks were thrown out about 7 years later.
Receiving this gorgeous Lamy Al-Star 2018 special Edition fountain pen is quite nostalgic for me. I’m super excited to start using it and I’m not sure about you but when I hold a good quality pen in my hand, it kind of makes me feel like the words I write are more important. I write more carefully and I’m more thoughtful and neat and that’s the way I wan’t things to be. I’ve been working on being more mindful and relaxing more, rather than living a rushed existence and taking the time to sit and write is going to help me with this.
The Bomo Art Half Bound Journal is really a special and unique gift which I am incredibly excited about. This leather bound journal not only looks but it smells gorgeous too. I love the design and the fact it has red leather, perfect for valentines and super special in my eyes.
The Bomo Art Journal is going to serve as my new journal for documenting my thoughts and progress as I continue in my efforts to lose weight. I am sure this will really help me and having a special journal which is luxurious just makes me feel special.
The Lamy Fountain Pen is limited edition and currently retails for £22.96. The Bomo Art Journal is £27.50 and both items are really lovely, luxurious and unique for me. I am super pleased to have them and look forward to recording my thoughts and words with my new gifts.
