Back to basics with the Old English Company

Let me list a few things that I like; stationery, homeware, quotes and typography. I mean of course I like more than just those 4 things but for the sake of this post, let’s just stick with those four. So when Old English Company reached out to me about a potential collaboration, a company who specialize in home-wear and stationery which – and get this – are embodied with beautiful hand lettered quotes, you can imagine I said yes fairly instantly. Otherwise, this post would be pretty damn short. 

I was let lose on their website with £50 to spend. Which I think was extremely generous of them so before we go any further, a massive thank you to Old English Company for sending me these products. I spent hours on the website and I really do mean that… hours. I wanted to choose wisely, grab a few things I need and also some bits I just thought were cute. They turned up all in perfect condition so with that out the way, let’s talk about what I picked!

Starting with homeware, I picked up 3 little bits. I’ve been kinda re-decorating my room since September last year and I’m still not entirely happy with it but I picked these 2 coasters which although they came individually, I thought looked like a set and I absolutely adore the quotes on each of them. And I picked this super cute mug because if you have a new coaster, you need a new mug to go on it right?

Old English Company stationery is absolutely gorgeous and I simply couldn’t come away without putting something from that section in my basket. A blogger can never have enough notebooks amiright so I chose this one with “you’ve got this” on. Simple but motivating. I also grabbed this little pink notepad which I thought would be super handy to keep in the kitchen to jot things down on when you need to!

Although accessories aren’t their main market, they do have some gorgeous make-up bags and I’m so happy I picked this one up. First of all, the quote on it sums me up perfectly. The bag itself is actually a fair bit bigger than I thought it was going to be so I’m definitely not complaining there and the material is lovely and soft. This will be perfect for short trips away.

And lastly, I picked up two cards, one for my boyfriend’s birthday and one for my best friend’s birthday. The magic one is absolutely perfect because my boyfriend is a magician so I instantly put that in my basket! The other one is for my best friend and I think it’s the sort of card she’d really like. They have a huge array of different cards for different occasions and it’s definitely somewhere I’d consider buying cards from again in the future. All the designs are gorgeous!

I am literally over the moon with my experience with Old English Company. From the very first email, they were kind and helpful. The website offers so many amazing products it was almost impossible for me to narrow them down. You could find such lovely gifts on this site and all the products that I received at least were great quality. Oh and did I mention how reasonably priced everything is! Although I didn’t pick any myself, they also have pages upon pages of gorgeous quote prints, all in the stunning typography you see above so for anyone re-doing a room or a house and looking for some simplistic prints, I’d highly recommend these!
