I am a stationery addict and my collection of pretty notebooks and journals is almost as big as my collection of books (well, not quite). There's just something about a pretty notebook with fresh, empty pages that gets me reaching for my debit card and running to the checkouts (or not, because I don't run voluntarily, but you get the gist).
And yet, I don't appear to have shared this stationery addiction with you, dear readers, so that's what I'm doing today. Sharing my entire collection of pretty notebooks would take approximately one hundred years, so these are my favourites:
This was given to me by my friend and fellow pizza addict, Jack, who's actually just re-launched his blog which you can see here. I remember being so happy when this arrived as Emma Bridgewater is one of my favourite designers, and it came with matching pencils. Matching stationery is everything. ❤
This, along with the next two, was given to me for my birthday and I am more than slightly in love with it. I haven't used any of them yet because, like I said earlier, it's hard to know what to use them for and I don't want to ruin the perfect, clean pages with my messy handwriting. For now, I'm content with just looking at it. SO SHINY.
Again, SO SHINY. Along with the notebook above, this was from Sainsbury's ages ago but Hobbycraft has a very similar range if you love it as much as I do. You're welcome.
Okay, I do actually have plans for this one (I know, wow). Next time I go on holiday, whenever that may be, I'm going to write about it in here. This is also from Sainsbury's, surprise surprise.
THIS ISN'T FROM SAINSBURY'S. I have no idea where it's from as it was a Christmas gift but I love it. It's pretty heavy, with a soft turquoise cover and shiny gold accents.
As an addition, I also want to show you some note-cards that were sent to me recently from Abrams & Chronicle because they're so pretty.
Stripes. Gold accents. Need I say more?
Macaron Mini Notes // £7.99
Most of you will know about my macaron obsession so you can imagine how happy I was when this arrived. You can write on the back of the macarons, and they come with tiny envelopes and stickers. So it's basically everything you need in life.
Next up: birthday cards from Paperless Post! I am in love. It would be weird to get myself a birthday card for every future birthday, though...
