Why every blogger needs Dot Creates in their lives!

– LIFESTYLE –

When I had only been blogging for a couple of months I came across this company called Dot Creates from their Instagram (which is amazing can I just say) and I fell in love with what I saw. They are a stationary and gift shop that sell a wide range of gifts from planners, stickers and phone cases to pencils, posters and notebooks – WHAT EVERY BLOGGER COULD POSSIBLY NEED/WANT! They have a good selection of different colours and prints on everything they sell which is great as there is something for everyone.  The prices of the products are really affordable and every couple of weeks they have a big sale on their website. They currently only deliver to the UK and Europe and the delivery charge depends on how much it weighs.

The Ultimate Blog Planner- £6, Gold Foil Pencils -£4.30 and the Stickers -£1

fullsizeoutput_1c4b
This main inside of the planner. On the right side is where you plan your blog posts and on the left side is where you can write down your upcoming events and sponsored content. I find the sponsored content section is really good as I can take note of all of the collaborations that are either completed or are upcoming. I like being able to tick off when the product has arrived for me to review and whether I have been paid or not. This side is great for the organisation of the collaborations which for a blogger i think it really important and what every blogger should be doing.

I find the section on the right really useful for me to plan blog posts, since receiving this planner I havent used anything else to plan blog posts. I love how big the space is, you can completely make the space your own to plan posts. I sometimes do lists, sometimes write little paragraphs and sometimes do spider diagrams. During the process of creating  that post there are 4 sections for you to tick off once completed ‘Words’ , ‘Links’ and ‘Photos’ and ‘Published’ ( TICKING OFF THE PUBLISHED BOX IS ONE OF THE BEST FEELINGS!!!). I find these boxes are also a good reminder of what each post should normally consist of and its easy for you to see what you still need to do. I love looking back on the pages towards the start of this planner so i can see all of the posts that i have completed.
At the bottom of the page there is a mini diary, I write down where I am at with that particular post. If there is anything else I need to add or if there is anything that I need to do during the process of editing and putting this idea together.
fullsizeoutput_1c52
There are a couple of quotes that are spread throughout the diary which I really like. I think that not only is it a nice touch but it also gives you that extra bit of motivation that you might need after a long hard planning sesh! It’s really nice to read the different quotes when you reach them in the planner.

THESE STICKERS ARE MY ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE! I think they are so cute, I don’t want to use them. It doesn’t matter what age you are, everyone loves stickers and on their website they have 3 different types of stickers so there is bound to be something for you. These stickers are good as they have a mixture of picture ones and text ones, I LOVE that they have a mixure of the two. You could add the picture ones to the front of your planner or even stick them on your laptop. Adding these stickers can make your planner more colourful, for example adding a ‘Done’ sticker next to your post or adding ‘Important’ next to an event.
fullsizeoutput_1c59
OKAY I LIED, THE PENCILS ARE MY FAVOURITES! These are the only pencils that they currently have on their websites but they do have pens. You can only buy the pencils as a set but they are really worth the money if you are going to use them. I really wanted some pencils because I think it is so much better to use pencils when post planning because you can rub it out, whereas if you use a pen you can’t. Each pencil has a cute little saying on it, I think the I NEED COFFEE one is my favourite, because coffee = life. I like that the pencils are white as this is such a sophicasited colour, but also when do you ever seen white pencils?! and the gold foil writing adds something extra to them.

Dot Creates is the perfect stationery shop for anyone who is obsessed with stationary like me, but also for every blogger. I really recommend buying some of their bits, I would 100% recommend purchasing the planner as it has been a life saver!!!! There are some really lovely wall hangings and picture quotes on their website that would make some lovely gifts and would also look cute in anyones bedroom. When I purchased these, they didn’t take long to come at all and I was really happy with the service.
If you havent already checked out Dot Creates then I would 1000% recommend that you do, you are guaranteed to find something that you love. I would also say for you to follow their Instagram and Twitter so you can keep up to date with their new products and also when the have a sale on. If you already own something from Dot Creates then let me know down below what you have!
