A Mini Stationary Haul

A Mini Stationary Haul
Hello lovelies! I am about to start my third and final year of university very soon and of course whenever a new term is about to begin new stationary is a necessity to purchase. Since I am a design student the only essentials I really needed to purchase was not including boring a3 folders/portfolios is paper and sticky notes. I probably own way too much cute stationary already but the simplest, dainty pieces of new stationary can really start off your term with excitement..am I right or am I a little too obsessed with stationary to be excited?!

All of this beautiful stationary was from Paperchase apart from the sticky notes. I always shop at Paperchase if I am wanting cute new stationary because they always have amazing, quirky pieces to stock up on! They create the simplest bits of stationary and totally revamp it into something exciting and worth using. I went a little crazy and ended up purchasing more than I needed...

The olive/emerald green book is actually plain paper because as a design student paper is essential for drawing mock ups, ideas, scribbles etc. How dainty and pretty is my lined notebook with the birds? I have quite a few notebooks with this sort of design on as it just appeals to me a lot! I always buy new notebooks for lectures, note taking or any sort of plan involving uni all goes in here.

Post it notes and a tiny plain paper notepad are my random bits of stationary that I find incredibly useful. A lot of the time in our course we jot down different ideas on one post it note and by the end our wall is covered with a variety of colourful ideas to choose from! really recommend you to try this if you are a design student. My cute, quirky notepad is where I jot down all my random ideas when I am on the train, travelling wherever I am if I come up with an idea that needs wrote down/drawn this is what I will use. I use this for blogging ideas on the go too! - feeling very organised!

I used to love having big fluffy pens when I was a child so when I saw this pink one with an owl on top I just had to pick it up because..well I get bored of plain black pens for writing stuff down it will brighten up my work!

Do you love stationary as much as me??

  9. I am literally addicted to stationary and have been ever since I started Uni (which, scarily, was 6 years ago now!!!). I had so much fun buying amazing stationary for Uni and, even though I don't need it so much any more, still find myself buying so much stationary that I think I have a problem haha!

    I love the cute little notebook, might have to add it to my shopping list!
