Sticker Club by BowlerBearDesigns

As Coronavirus is having a huge impact on the world right now, causing a lot of unease and uncertainty, I wanted to continue to keep my blog a bright, positive and uplifting space. Times are challenging, so I’m hoping these posts can take your mind off the current situation, even if it is just for a moment.

This week, I am really excited to be teaming up with one of my favourite creators – Simone from BowlerBearDesigns. I was lucky enough to review a selection of her happy gifts and colourful cards last year – click if you like dinosaurs, rainbows & positivity.  And most recently, Simone’s self-care sticker set was included in my Twitter 1K Stationery Giveaway, so you can see I have a lot of love for these fab designs.

BowlerBearDesigns is all about happiness and positivity, with fun and fabulous products including notebooks, planners, badges, postcards, keyrings, wall art and much more! The designs are popping with bright colours and motivational messages – guaranteed to make you smile and brighten your day.

So when Simone got in touch and asked me if I would like to write a blog about her recently launched Sticker Club, I knew instantly it was going to be something very awesome and jumped at the opportunity!

The Sticker Club is a monthly set of 3 high-quality vinyl stickers exclusively designed by BowlerBearDesigns all with positivity and motivation in mind. Each month follows a different theme, March is ‘Colour’ and April will be ‘Mental Wellbeing’. The stickers will be complete surprise, which makes it even more exciting!

What I love about The Sticker Club is that it isn’t a subscription box, you can opt in and out as you choose. Just simply head over to BowlerBearDesigns and make your order. Due to the current situation, the April set is only available to purchase for 1 week (until Sunday 4th April) so hurry over and treat yourselves <3

I really love the colourful surprises in the March sticker set, rainbows and positivity are totally my thing. What is even better is that each set only costs £5, which includes U.K. p&p, making this a lovely and affordable way to bring yourself or a friend a little joy every month. Who doesn’t love surprise happy mail!

If you are like me, you can probably already think of tons of ways to display your new awesome stickers. Mine are currently on my sticker wall, brightening up my room but you can also use these in scrapbooks, bullet journals, planners, or decorating laptops, and desks. Get creative and fill your space with colour!

Now, more so than ever, we need to bring as much colour, positivity and motivation into our lives and The Sticker Club does this perfectly. April’s theme of Mental Wellbeing is a very timely and important reminder to take care of ourselves as best we can. Click here to see the brilliant range of Self Care Gifts.

If you would like to place your order for April’s Mental Wellbeing stickers, head over to BowlerBearDesigns and grab yourself a fun & fabulous treat. You can also follow Simone on Instagram and Facebook to keep up with all the latest updates and fill your feed with colour and happiness (rainbows & dinosaurs)!

A big thank you to Simone for very kindly sending me these awesome stickers! <3

BowlerBearDesigns – Happy Gifts & Colourful Cards

Guess who’s back… back again… back with a selection of happy and colourful gifts to share with you all. Yes, that’s right, it’s me. After six weeks away I am feeling refreshed and ready to update this space with some fun and funky things. And this post has it all, colour, fun, positivity and dinosaurs – yay x100! Let me introduce you to BowlerBearDesigns – I first discovered this cute and quirky brand when I received an awesome personalized print in my The YAY Makers – May Box. Then recently, the lovely Simone contacted me asking if I would like to review a selection of her latest products and I was like YAAASSS PLEASE!!! <3

BowlerBearDesigns are a husband and wife duo, with Simone (the artist) creating stunning prints and designs all popping with pretty pastels! I absolutely adore the amount of dinosaur-related goodies Simone has created, if you are a dino-fan you NEED to go browse the shop… it’s roar-some (pun fully intended). You can also get your hands on tote bags, badges, pins, postcards, letters, rainbows and tons more fun and fantastic gifts! Follow BowlerBearDesigns on Instagram to keep up with the latest colourful creations.

I was sent an fabulous bundle of colour: Yellow Dinosaur Tote Bag / B Alphabet Letter / Rainbow Shelfie / Dinosaur Pin Badge / Happy As Can Be Magnet / Tiger Postcard. So much awesome, thank you Simone! <3

Yellow Dinosaur Tote Bag: This is the most gorgeous sunshine yellow tote bag that reads: I’m just a girl who loves dinosaurs. How freakin’ cool is that. As we are now heading into Autumn, this would certainly brighten up the dullest of days and even if you are not a shopping fan, this dino bag will keep you cheerful.

B Alphabet Letter: These letters are such a fun idea! I especially love mine as it is in such a pretty shade of pink *heart eyes*. They are lightweight, freestanding, and look perfect on a desk or shelf – why not have an initial or spell out your whole name. They are also available is in a lovely blue shade if pink isn’t your thing.

Rainbow Shelfie: Rainbows and positivity – could this be anymore perfect?! Again, it’s freestanding and lightweight, so can sit on your shelf as a reminder to be kind to yourself. This would make such a cute gift for a loved one or just simply a little self-present to yourself as you are bright, beautiful & awesome.

Tiger Postcard: You can never have too many postcards and the more bright and colourful the better! Check out this gorgeous tiger with it’s pastel stripes – loves it! Whether you are a fan of tigers, or just cute postcards in general, then this is must-have for the collection. Go see the fab range of birthday cards too!

Happy As Can Be Magnet: This is such a cute and cheerful magnet! It is from a set of Mood Magnets where you choose the appropriate weather symbol to suit you mood, sticking it on the fridge for the whole family to see! Also available in dinosaur (‘extinct’ for a bad day) and plant (‘leaf me alone’) – brilliant.

Dinosaur Pin Badge: When I grow up I’m going to be a dinosaur… because why not?! This fun badge is a must-have for any dinosaur fanatic, or cool person. There is whole range you can collect, all with different dinos. I especially love the Dino Pin which was designed and inspired by mental health awareness week.

So there ya go! I hope you enjoyed seeing the cute and colourful treats I received from BowlerBearDesigns. I know they will be perfect for brightening up my desk space and reminding me to stay positive! A big thank you to Simone for sending me these lovely goodies, and don’t forget to head over to Instagram and give her a follow to add some pretty pastels (and dinosaurs) to your feed!
