LITTLE THINGS: Notebooks

pretty notebooks

I am one of those people who has the memory of a fish...I can remember pointless details about the lives of The Only Way Is Essex cast members and who is Creative Director for which fashion house and I have quite an encyclopaedic knowledge of the Tudors but when it comes to important, everyday things like 'drop prescription in chemist', 'buy dog food' or 'BEST MATE'S BABY'S BIRTHDAY' they just won't stay in my brain. So now it's absolutely necessary to write it all down for the sake of my health, Freddydog's belly and to avoid upsetting friendships, which would be annoying but it means I get to indulge in one of my greatest loves...stationary! There's just something about it, ain't there? Choosing a pretty book, all that fresh paper and the hope that you won't eff up the first page with messy mistakes. I know it's not just me who's a stationary geek, I think we all are on the inside! I picked the 'J' book (obsessed with things with initials on) from Joy...this is the book I carry around with me in my bag. The pink one was a bargain find in my local TK Maxx (which is amazing for books, I nabbed a copy of Luella's Guide To English Style for just under a fiver.) It was only £3 and serves as my diary...if you think I ramble about crap on here you wanna read that! The print is Allegra Hicks and I love it so much I just keep staring at it, I hope you do the same with things you love otherwise I'm gonna look like a bit of a weirdo.

  1. I have so many notebooks it's kinda ridiculous. I love Moleskine journals the best, but your J notebook is really sweet! xx

  2. You can't beat new stationary, although I am always afraid of making a mess too! I always start with the intention of keeping every page perfect, that doesn't happen! xxx

  3. Ooh stationary!! I love stationary :) my favourite little section to browse in TK Maxx, don't even get me started on Paperchase! I have so many notebooks I don't even know what to do with them, but I love them all the same haha. I'm definitely a list maker, but I tend to write little reminders on my phone and check it occasionally so I don't forget anything major. I stare at things I love, and in the case of something like a new leather bag I might even be known to stroke it and gaze at it adoringly ha! xxx

  13. I have got oodles of notebooks. I rarely if ever finish one but am always buying more. I just scribble a few pages here and there. There's no order to them. I'm so disorganised! x x

  16. When I read that you have an encyclopaedic knowledge of the Tudors I gave you a slow dramatic mental round of applause, I love that someone else is as mental about it as me!! Love these notepads, I buy them alllllll the time and write a couple of things in neat writing then get bored and get a new one! Xx
