Cath Kidston Block Pad
I really like the Cath Kidston pattern designs and have a good few bits of various patterns ranging from mugs to purses and most of my family an friends know that I am quite a fan. So luckily I received for Christmas this lovely block note pad from a friend and I was thrilled.
The note pad that I have is of a very slightly different design to the one that is pictured here as mine is of a yellow colour and this matches my kitchen more than the blue on would so I am glad she picked out for me this colour. The flower and colour pattern is on all four sides of the block and is very slightly noticeable when one sheet is removed from the pad. I like the design an pattern and feel it looks far better than a plain one would do.
The pad itself retails for around the £6 mark depending on where you purchase it from and I must say that I think this price is very reasonable considering its size, design and the amount of time it should last me to use up. I reckon it's a smashing gift idea.
Not only is the pad itself super useful and very pretty but the people who designed it came up with a brilliant idea of putting a hole through the pad in the top corner where either a pen or pencil can be placed. This is ingenious as there is never a pen when you need one. We just have to remember to put it back if we remove it now!!
I can't praise this pad enough. I think it is a cheap price for both the quality and quantity you get with it. It looks very pretty in my kitchen and the size of it should ensure I am using it in months to come.
I feel a top score of five out of five stars is well deserved for this really great little ten
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
I do hope that this has been of some help or interest to you.
As everyone who knows me knows I am a little bit obsessed with all things Cath Kidston and love the vintage inspired patterns that are used on all her products. On the Cath Kidston website you can buy everything from bags to dog collars all with distinctive and vintage patterns on them.
The block pad is a great little item that doesn't cost the earth and is really handy for having next to the phone or just for scribbling notes on to stick to the fridge to tell your kids to do something.
I have had a few of these over the years all with different patterns but as I like nearly every pattern in the range I couldn't tell you which is my favourite as they are all so pretty.
The block pad comes with 800 blank sheets of paper to use which are a good enough size for scribbling some notes on or taking down a message or phone number. What is really nice about these block pads is that you won't need to hunt out a pen as the block has a hole in it designed to fit a pen so that it is always to hand.
This does mean that the paper has a hole in it when you tear it off but as it is in the corner it doesn't really get in the way.
The famous Cath Kidston patterns are designed all the way around the block pad so you get the view of it no matter where you place the pad.
The paper is a really nice quality and feels thick and doesn't tear easily when you are writing on it. As the paper is on top of other paper on the block it actually makes it really simple to write on even when the pen you are using is starting to run out.
These little block pads cost around about £6 each and I think this is well worth the money as they are lovely and as well as being useful they make great little presents for people.
Since working in an office environment I have felt the need to spruce up my desk with fun and bright things just to make the day go a little better and the room more pleasant! I was wanting something a little different than your average post it note pad and saw this block pad in our local Cath Kidston store, I am a big fan of her designs and products and so decided to treat myself to one of these! Note pads are very handy little desk accessories to scribble down calls, reminders or little messages for friends.
Cath Kidston's range has both modern and classic print designs in order to appeal to the largest audience. I have to admit to liking her floral designs more than some of the newer prints such as the cowboy design and spots, especially on items I use frequently like handbags and wash bags alike. The floral patterns seem to go really well with casual outfits and plainer items of clothing. Her designs are very recognisable and iconic.
The pattern used on this note pad is called Bath Flowers, which is a very dainty and simple design. the background is a deep, linen blue colour with tiny pink, baby blue and white flowers scattered frequently across the pattern. It is both subtle yet pretty and a very feminine print of hers. The Cath Kidston pattern is around the edges of the block pad, printed onto the edges of the paper. With every sheet of paper you use off the notepad the pattern decreases in size, so I am quite frugal with mine! The note pad has dimensions of 9xm length, 9cm width and 9cm height, so an even square size.
The paper is nice and thick and a slightly off-white colour. In the top right hand side of the pad is cut a small circular hole that goes completely through the entire note pad, it is the perfect size to stand a pen in I have found! Very handy. There are approximately 800 sheets of note paper so this will last you awhile. It costs £6 and is a great little treat for yourself or perhaps a good idea for a colleagues Christmas present! They are available in Cath Kidston stores and online at cathkidston.co.uk.
