Stationary Haul







I could spend hours browsing in stationary stores for new pens and notebooks, there is just something about writing on a crisp, new page so after collecting a few more notebooks in recent weeks I thought it was time for a stationary haul. I'm terrible for buying notebook after notebook and never using them because I don't want to ruin the pages which completely defeats their reasoning. The I'm Over It notebook I bought from The Hambledon in Winchester is prime example. Each section is colour coded and the sections each start with a different quote. It's cool, quirky and the perfect place to vent. Inspired by Lauren Hom's blog turned book Daily Dishonesty, it would make a fab stocking filler for stationary fans. 

My most recent finds are the Kate Spade pearl notebook* and gold pen set* from Amara. Everyone needs a little luxury and the metallic gold pens give just that, plus if anyone steals one you know they're yours straight away. My current blog notebook is down to its last few pages so in its place will be the soft pink, pearl ring notebook. I'm hoping to pick up the Chic Happens journel next, ya know 'cos I need more and there is such a great selection on the Amara website. I could easily spend a small fortune. 

My lovely friend Jess bought the white and gold journals for me from Home Bargains a few weeks back as they were so me, plus pretty instagrammable. The lined jotter has come in handy for work and the little, spotty flip pad has found pride of place in my handbag. Friends whom buy you stationary are friends for life, always. Lastly is my whale notebook from Homesense. I bought this with the gift cards each blogger was given on their preview night. It's a hardback, line notebook with the one quote I need to remember to do more of, 'Go with the flow'. I haven't found a use for it yet but I had to buy it for the cute front alone. Homesense and TK Maxx are the best place to find adorable and cheap stationary! 

What have you been picking up lately?
