I love stationery, and as a writer and blogger it is so important to have diaries, journals and notepads and pens in order to jot my ideas down, because I'm always coming up with editorial pitches.

I use diaries so that I can write down important pitches, ideas, deadlines and upcoming events but sometimes you have to wait till September or December in order to get a full-year diary.

That's where Toad Diaries comes in.  You can purchase diaries at any time of the year, and you can personalise your diary by changing the layout and the illustrations on the cover.  I really don't like buying the boring, standard diaries and journals you get in the local shops so it's nice to be able to personalise my diary so that it's just for me.

I received the diary in the first picture from the Bloggers' Festival event.  The Toad Diaries staff were so lovely and they asked for feedback on how I found using the website.  Prior to the event I created the diary so I was pleased with how it looked, and I found the website quite easy to use.  That's what I like about Toad Diaries - I am able to create my diary and tailor it to my preferences.

The diary in the second picture was given to my by Laura, the Editor of lifestyle and travel magazine House of Coco.  I just joined the team in January of this year and the '#TeamCoco diary came as part of a (massive) goody bag she gave me.  Like I said I'm always coming up with ideas and pitches so if I have an article idea for the magazine I can just jot it down in the #TeamCoco diary.

I go through diaries, journals and notepads so often and I am always eyeing up quirky pads but I would order from Toad Diaries again because I'm very impressed with the company.

*I was gifted these items but my opinions are my own.

Where do you buy notepads, journals and diaries from?  Would you order from Toad Diaries?
