A love affair with stationary

I know I'm certainly not alone when I say, I am unequivocally and unashamedly in love with stationary. Notebooks, washi tape, new pens, post-it notes, scrapbooks; I have it all. I have always had a love of writing lists which is probably where it comes from, and I scrapbooked from a young age. If there are notebooks in a shop, they immediately catch my eye, until I'm usually dragged away from my Mum muttering "you don't need any more!".

This week four new ones have been added to the collection (oops!). The Rifle Paper Co. popped up on my Pinterest recently and I just fell in love. The patterns are beautiful, and they have such a lovely range of products (think anything from stickers to iphone cases). I actually found the set of three I bought on Amazon as they were a little cheaper, and I've already been scribbling meal plans and healthy recipes inside one. Mum also bought me an a4 one from Sainsburys which is a pretty turquoise colour with daisy's on.

Another favourite is definitely my Paris one from Paperchase. Kane actually spilled a brew all over the inside not too long ago and I was definitely choking back the tears as I ripped out the ruined pages. And of course, I have to give a special mention to the Frankie Diary. 2013 was only my second one but I know it'll be a diary I'll be buying for many years to come. I know my collection may be a bit excessive (it's not all pictured, by the way!) but I definitely do feel it helps keep me inspired and organized, and I'll always keep at least one on me. Are you a fellow stationary lover?

  9. Gahhhh I want it all! I'm a sucker for stationary and have always had multiple notebooks on the go (usually with only a few pages used as I've normally found another one I NEED by that point haha!)

  10. That diary looks beautiful! Stationery is the best, there was nothing more exciting than shopping for back to school pencil case, fresh notebooks to write on, ring binders, a pretty fountain pen! Why shouldn't we carry it on through adulthood :) I love it all!!


  11. All of this look beautiful! I just went on a huge stationery shopping day yesterday, as college's back for me next week. It's so exciting and fun to get a lot of cute notebooks and pens and organizers [and heart paper-clips. oh my.]. I used to get a lot of stuff from Paperchase when I was still in England and how I miss that shop! :'(

  13. I'm in the same boat - I bloomin' love it. I've recently got back into letter writing which has given me an excuse to splurge in Paperchase (you can see what I got here: xx

  14. Oh my goodness, I am in LOVE! Stationary has always inspired me with so many possibilities of writing letters and doodling etc... it looks like you've found the prettiest notebooks and paper ever!
