Starting a new term at uni or school is always an excuse to buy new stationery, right? And where better than Paperchase to buy said stationery? I have picked up a few different bits over the last few weeks so I thought I would show you them on here - y'know, because everyone always needs a bit of stationery inspo.
I was actually given this lined notebook as a birthday present by my best friend and I absolutely love it. You all know how much of a sucker I am for quotes, and I like how it's hardback so it won't get scrunched up. I think I'm going to use this for hospital to make notes in! All of Paperchase's notebooks are beautiful - I have a couple of their hand-stitched notebooks which are some of my favourite.
These were also a present from Roxy - and highlighters are always so handy when making notes! I use them to highlight important bits of information, or titles, as I go through my work. They're good for exams too.
I needed a new popper wallet as my older ones are all broken and I use them to carry paper around instead of my huge folder, so I picked up this one with chips on as it's a bit more fun than the standard coloured wallets.
Raindrops List Pad
I think this has sold out on the Paperchase website, but it may still be in the stores - the website still has other list pads in different designs. I am hoping this will make me super organised for next year, as I can write notes and a tick list for bits of work that I need to complete (and probably a few blog post ideas!). I love how it has some sticky notes in the top left corner that can be used to stick to pieces of work, and the colours are just gorgeous. I especially love that the front has 'List Book' written in gold!
Folder with Stars
I also can't find this on the website, but I did buy it from the Shrewsbury store. It is a lever arch file with sparkly stars on the outside, and I'm planning to use it to store my notes in throughout the year.
I also bought a couple of non-photogenic boring, but essential, stationery bits like a pad of lined paper and some folder dividers. To be honest, I could have come home with the whole of Paperchase - their items are so beautiful and obviously I need some doughnut-shaped post-it notes and a rubber in the shape of a sausage dog.
I have had a lovely day today - it was mostly spent tidying and watching TV, but this evening my friend Neala came down to see me from Liverpool for a few days. We're going for afternoon tea tomorrow, so watch out for the post on that!
