I love stationery. There is something oddly satisfying about new books and pens to scribble on the fresh pages with. The smell of new stationery is just all kinds of delightful and shopping for stationary is akin to therapy…new pages and fresh starts, staplers, hole punchers, that new book smell… you know what I mean right?

Notebooks are to me what staple pins are to staples; essential, which would explain why I currently have over 20 notebooks residing in one of my many stationary boxes, all hardy used but at the time of purchased I solemnly declared each one of them to be my one and only. A girl can never have too many notebooks; its one of life’s golden rules. My most treasured notebooks come from Cath Kidston, I have about six of them in addition to a good selection of her very lovely stationery. There’s something so unique about them; stickers, notecards, address books, labels, letter writing set etc. This A6 notebook is possibly the best of the lot with its hard back, vintage print and pretty glossy finish. Inside is wide ruled with more pretty vintage designs, a date and subject heading on each page makes it easier to categorise your notes. Wire bound for flexibility, it couldn’t be more perfectly necessary. Don’t just take my word for it, actually do, because they are pretty cool notebooks and I should know.

Buy here, here and definitely here… £8 but John Lewis have an offer on right now so you get it for 6 quid. Voila!
