Viking is an online site which sells everything from stationery and craft supplies to electronics and furniture. Recently I was contacted in regards to receiving a bundle* of anything I desired from the website. I spent ages looking through the site trying to decide what I was going to choose, and I’m really happy with what I chose.
Since I’m at University, I actually already own a ridiculous amount of stationery from various kinds of pens, notepads, highlighters… you name it, and I’ve probably got it. The main thing I don’t actually own? Plain. White. Paper. So of course I chose a pack of paper which will come in handy for revision! I’m really interested in doing some craft soon after exams, so the other things I picked were some really colourful cellophane sheets, a Nestle treat size selection pack (a student needs power food!), a 16GB SD card so I can take lots of pretty photos and a six pack of fluorescent ready mix paint. All the products are really good quality and the chocolate has already disappeared!
I was really impressed when these paints arrived, as not only are they really gorgeous colours but they were packed in a sturdy box in really pretty packaging of their own. I just love the love heart symbol on the lids! These florescent ready mixed paints are exactly what it says they are – read mixed! So there’s no wasted time prepping the paint before using it. For £14.99 I think this pack of 6 x 600ML bottles of paint is worth getting!
Shown in the image above is a SanDisk 16GB Ultra DS card, which I’m using in my camera as it’s faster than my usual 4GB card and obviously holds more memory. The card is £12.59, and I’m really impressed with it and I have not experienced any problems with it – even when I took it on the long journey to Sheffield to see McBusted! I couldn’t help myself get a treat size Nestle selection pack, as a student need motivation right! The pack is £5.75 and its jam packed with 22 delicious treats inside.
As stated above, I didn’t own any paper so requested a pack. I was expecting just a boring pack of paper however I think this packaging is really cool and funky. I’m currently using this paper for both the printer and for a bit of craft. You get 500 white sheets for £3.59 and it is great for printing and photocopying.
Not your usual kind of purchase, but these cellophane sheets are £2.75, and you receive 48 sheets in a variety of colours. These remind me of when I was younger and we’d make stain glass windows, and I already have an idea or two what I’m going to make with these! I find colour cellophane sheets really pretty, and if you layer one over the other, you can make a completely different colour! These are decent sized sheets (A4), so there’s a lot to work with which is great, I’m really pleased with this pack.
I’ve always been a big fan of stationery (hence why I didn’t need any more this time as I already own lots!), however I do have my eye on a few more things from http://www.viking-direct.co.uk like this adorable Cat Post-it dispenser – perfect for any crazy cat lady!

I’m pleasantly surprised at the quality of each product and the pricing is reasonable. I wouldn’t think twice about ordering again from Viking – especially if I needed to top up on chocolate!
