Simplicity at it’s finest with the Old English Company

*Disclaimer*

All Products reviewed in this blog post were gifted to me, courtesy of Old English Company. However, all views and opinions are my own.


The lovely people at the Old English Company contacted me and asked if i would like to choose some of their products to do a review on my blog with, they gave me Β£50 to spend on products, and let me loose on their website!

There website is lovely, easy to navigate and they have loads and loads of amazing products to choose from; mugs, pins, prints, cards, homewear and stationary.

As you can imagine, i spent a good while looking through all the beautiful products on the webiste and if i’m totally honest, it took me a week to decide what i was going to choose!

I know, i know, procrsatination at it’s finest!

so let’s see, what did i finally choose…


Enamel Tiger Mug

When i saw this it was one of those “i just gotta have it” items. I absolutely adore tigers, they are my favourite animal ever and i would love to own one as a pet!

As this isn’t really an option right now, i figured this mug would have to suffice for the time being, it’s a Shame as i would really have liked the fluffy type!

As we are moving into our new house shortly a nice new mug will come in very handy, also i’m a binge drinker of tea so it will be put to very good use.


“You can and You will” A5 Planner

“Things in my head” A6 Notepad

I’ve been in a massive funk over the past few months, i lost my motivation and as i’ve perfected procastination so well over the years it kinda made it easy to keep me in my funk too!

When i saw this planner, it made me smile, because no matter what shit has been thrown my way in life there is one thing i know for sure, and that is “I can and I will” get through it!

Fits perfectly dont you think?

What I love about these planners is that they don’t have dates printed inside so you can add the date as you go along within it, if your like me and dont tend to write daily then this is why having no dates is so fab! Also it’s set up for the list lovers with bullet points added to each line, there’s also a little notes section at the bottom.


“You’re Entirely Bonkers” Print

I love this print and chose this for my eldest daughter (8yr old), she’s a fan of Alice in Wonderland and it fits her perfectly as she really is Entirely Bonkers!

She will be having her own bedroom when we’ve moved into our new house and i thought this would be a lovely addition to a few other things i’ve already got for her room, and this will also no doubt set her off on a love for a collection of prints too!

I will definitely be going back to the Old English Company for more as they have a huge selection of prints to choose from.

The prints they sell on their site come in a choice of 3 sizes for most and some with a choice of colour too!


“Call Dad” Coaster & Fathers Day Card

20180503_1036571064075610.jpg

As it’s Father’s Day soon i chose this card and coaster for my Dad. He’s a bit of a handyman and as he IS the best Dad in the world this will do nicely!

The coaster, well… it explains itself really! haha


Stay Weird & Everything You Can Imagine Coasters

I figured it’s only fair i got a couple of coasters for myself too, being an expert tea drinker i will be needing somewhere to place my lovely new cup!


That’s all my Lovely items. I will definitely be using the Old English Company for future purchases… I never did choose all the stationary i wanted!

Until next time!

Much Love

    Great post Laura! I love the print you got 😍 and that planner looks perfect! As you say, the ones with dates printed aren’t great, so this looks perfect for those of us who manage to procrastinate professionally.

      It’s fab isn’t it, I haven’t let my daughter see it yet but I think she’ll love it too! πŸ’•
      I’m trying to avoid the procrastinating at the moment, using this bullet planner is working wonders. Xx

    I’ve seen a lot of posts about these lately, and I can’t get enough! I want near enough one of everything on their site. If I had the money, I’d buy all sorts. The mug is so cute. I definitely think I need to get that coaster for my dad for Father’s Day or his birthday in June.
    Lovely pictures and great post.
