Weekend Blog Love

Well, hello there! Happy Saturday! It’s been a crazy and hectic over here and I’m so excited that the weekend is finally here! Yet again, I slacked off on Weekend Blog Love last week, so this week’s post might be a little longer than usual… oops! ;)

If you’re new around these parts, this weekly update is my way of sharing what’s been happening in my life over the past week. It’s also my way of sharing the love to other great blogs that I read. I spend a good chunk of my mornings reading other blogs and I love to curate lists of my favorite posts.

LAST WEEK @ BOHO BERRY:

A few big things happened around these parts last week…

The Bulletjournalist Show & Tell Series with Kara from Boho Berry

First, I was SO honored to be featured on Ryder Carroll’s Bulletjournalist Blog. Ryder is the creator of the Bullet Journal system that I’m always going on about. I was so excited when he reached out to me and asked me to be a part of his Show & Tell series! Check out the full post here :)

Practicing Spencerian Script

Next (as if I need a new obsession), I bought my very first fountain pen! I’ve been eyeing fountain pens for some time now. If you follow me over on Instagram, then you know that I’ve been practicing my cursive for some time now. I often get compliments on my all-caps handwriting and while that’s great I really want  to improve my cursive. What better way than to get a pen that makes me want to practice?

So I picked up a Pilot Metropolitan* and this awesome Spencerian Script Copy Book Set*… It’s safe to say that I’m a bit obsessed at the moment. You can expect a detailed review from me very soon :)

I just feel so honored! Thank you @staedtlermars!

Lastly, I was totally caught off guard when STAEDTLER sent me this amazing gift box:

I knew they were sending me a “little” gift as a thank you for being a huge fan of their products, but I was NOT prepared for the awesomeness when I opened the box. I have always been a huge fan of Staedtler pens, but now I’m a raving fan! Any company that would be so incredibly generous is a-ok in my book!

Again, you can expect a detailed review from me very very soon!

Excerpt:
Sometimes changing your life situation isn’t possible – or simply not possible soon enough.  You can’t restructure your entire lifestyle in an instant.  You can’t make someone else change against his or her will.  And you certainly can’t erase the past.  So what choices do you have left? …

    Fountain pens. I have my dad’s (who passed away too young). I can see in my mind’s eye, his mathematical formulas and notes written with that pen. I have fountain pens from both his parents. The large burgundy pen speaks of my Grandad. I can see him sitting at the formal dining table, presiding in his chair, and joking with the grandkids. And of course my proper English school marm Grandma, a traveller and adventurer to the end. I love my fountain pens.
