Everyday Organised with the Osprey Questa 27

getting organised for work, university and everyday
It’s been well over a year since I began prancing around with the Osprey Transporter and believe me it has been on some adventures including my recent overnight trip to Amsterdam, my first Tough Mudder Full event and on random days where I’m on a photoshoot and need to carry alot of kit / outfits. That’s one good thing about that bag… it’s perfect for carrying lots of big stuff, so that’s what maybe makes the Osprey Questa 27 so different… it’s more perfect for carrying lots of small stuff.

The Osprey Questa 27 For Everyday Organisation

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve gotten the Osprey Questa and it’s been on a wealth of adventures, maybe not quite as exciting, as the Transporter and I. I’ve been using it more on an everyday basis, carrying it for work when travelling to Brighton for the day or overnight visits to Bath. I also use it to take to University lectures as it’s big enough to fit my laptop, a few notebooks, a couple of water bottles, make up bags… the list goes on.

The Questa 27 in detail

The main compartment has 3 section in the back including a padded laptop compartment and a zipped padded compartment probably perfectly sized for a small tablet. It then also has a small zipped section at the front / top which I like to use to keep important things secure but easily accessible.

The compartment on the front is also pretty sizeable and contains a ton of slots and sections which I use to store my work phone, pens, chargers , snacks and other bits that I will need constantly through the day. The very front of the Questa 27 has a zipped compartment that I use for sunglasses and my travel card. The two side sections are used for water bottles, umbrella and cutlery. There is a space for everything.

For All The Cute Stationery

Already half way through the Autumn term at University now, means we are not far off assessment time. I also have a pretty sizeable handbook to go through for my dissertation with a ton of dates that need to go in my diary. My 2019 diary that I don’t yet own. For the past 4 years (I think) I have been using the Passion Planner and have really loved the mindset of goal setting that it promotes. However, I don’t think I’ve been using it to it’s full potential (mostly due to time) and also because as much as I try to resist, I do need to use an online diary in order to schedule work and keep a balance with training and life! So I’m on the lookout for a diary for 2019 with a maximum budget of £25 (I paid this and some for my Passion Planners when you added postage from the US on top!) and figured I would share my favourite places to pick up stationary (some cuter than others, lol) who also offer student discount!

Paperchase – offer 10% student discount online and in-store.

Kikki.k – offer a 10% student discount in store only (which isn’t so bad cos to get free delivery online you had to spend £90 the last time I checked!)

Rymans – for the more classic types of stationary. They offer a 10% student discount in-store and online

What’s your favourite place to buy stationery? Any diary recommendations? …and what’s the bag that you’re using 24/7 to transport everything you need on a daily basis?
