I received complimentary products for being part of the Busy B Ambassador Program; all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Anyone that knows me, knows that I have a slight obsession with writing utensils, notebooks, planners, and anything else related to office supplies & stationery. It’s been something I’ve been into since I was a kid. Perhaps it was because I grew up wanting to be a writer, and then graduated to only writing my own story by keeping a journal for 11+ years.
I was pretty stoked to be selected as an ambassador for the UK brand Busy B who with cleverly designed stationery, must-have accessories and gorgeous gifts strive to keep you beautifully organized! While, I won’t get to do everything a UK based ambassador will get to do (sad face – no events for me!) – I will be getting opportunities to share items with friends & family to help their brand grow in the United States. Currently, you can find them on Amazon!
I hope that this post will serve as an introduction to the brand, and some of their products that they currently offer. Along the way, as I continue to be an ambassador, I will be sharing their latest launches and upcoming happenings! In the meantime, I’d love it if you would show them some love and follow them on their social channels: Twitter, Facebook and Instagram!
Now! Onto the cute, oh-so-clever products they sent me! What’s your favorite?
The Day A Page Diary is just what it says – a diary for an entire year with one page dedicated to each day! I like this idea, because compared to a normal journal, having the date in front of you, it may help you feel more motivated to write a journal entry. Of course, you can leave it blank, but why not fill it up with a drawing or even just one sentence?
They have items that go beyond just planning and the office too – for example weddings and baby related items.
The Milestone Cards are so cute, and wish I had them around when T was born. I see a lot of people use these now when their baby hits a new month, and while it’s probably something I would have done the first time around (Sorry, second time around mom syndrome), these will make a great baby shower gift.
Another baby shower gift suggestion is their Baby Journal because it has spots for every stage of babyhood – before and during! I will be frank and say that this would have been much loved and needed when I was a first time mom, but with the Second Time Mom Syndrome, I could not see myself using now. I say that with sadness though, because I wish I was one of those moms who had the motivation to write things down but I turned out to not be one. I do however take a butt load of photos and that’s just as good sometimes (minus remembering when the exact date they walk or talked, etc).
The Family Calendar was a new concept for me. When I opened it, I wasn’t expecting to see what I saw – it’s basically broken up so that up to five people in the family can have their schedules tracked each month. There’s room for people’s activities, a birthday reminders column, and monthly pockets that you can hold invites, appointment reminders, tickets, homework, etc. It’s the easiest way to track everyone in your house!
I also received their planner, and desk pads.
A bit about their Busy Life Diary, taken directly from their website:
Each weekly spread has a double schedule for managing your life in a way that best suits you; ‘work and home’, ‘parents and kids’, ‘partner and you’, alongside space for lists and to do’s. Every three months, you’ll find a useful pocket for storing bits and bobs, this is the must-have diary for busy people. Also includes a grid layout overview of each month of the year, letting you pop in appointments or events for quick reference on the go.
I’m very much looking forward to trying out their other products that come my way!
