Now you can tell from the chosen notebooks above, that my taste in stationary is fairly eclectic. I love Orla Kiely's chic and sleek stationary designs, but at the same time love something that will make me smile. like the Pretty Dream notepad from ArtBox. I am also desperate to treat myself to a FiloFax, there's something special about them - I love how simple and official they look. Obviously I'd have to get one in a girly pink colour though. I'm currently using a blue notebook that has a little flower embossed on it, that I won in a giveaway. It has such a smooth, soft cover, which really appeals to me. I also have a lovely russian doll notepad from Paperchase, however I'm reluctant to use it often as the cover is a little fuzzy, like felt, which I don't like, and the pages don't have any lines on, which is always a no no for me! I think Paperchase is my go-to place for stationary, I'm always tempted by the cute critters they feature on their stationary, and the beautiful floral designs. However their prices can seem a little high if you compare them to little card shops and places like Wilkinsons who offer cute stationary at much lower prices.
I've been sorting my room out this week and creating a proper office space where I can do my work. Although I now have a desk, and the areas looking neat and tidy, I know it won't feel complete until I've bought a new stationary set, file holders and other little office accessories!
Do you have a thing for stationary too? (Please say I'm not the only one)
