Ever since school, I’ve loved buying new stationery. I find opening the first page of a blank notebook hugely satisfying and I’m sure I’m not alone in my adoration for pretty writing tools and notepads. For those who find tracking down pretty stationery buys a mission, here are some of my favourite brands and stores to check out.
While John Lewis might be more known for all things beauty and homeware, they also stock a small selection of stationery from Ban.Do to Kate Spade and Ted Baker. A few of my current favourite items include the Ban.Do I Am Very Busy Planner and Kate Spade Agenda.
Rifle Paper Co
Rifle Paper Co sell beautiful stationery. I have several of their notebooks and I’d highly recommend them to any stationery lover. Thier prints and journals are also exceptionally pretty.
ASOS might be known for their clothing but they also have a small selection of stationery. Paperchase, Ooh Deer and Ban.Do are just some of the brands they stock. There’s free delivery over £20.
Like many, I adore Autumn. There’s some slightly intoxicating about being snuggled up under a throw with a hot drink, watching a feel good movie or relaxing with a great book! This year, I’m planning to attempt a few new hobbies, as well as finding some new TV series to watch. If you’ve got some spare time this Autumn, here’s a bit of inspiration for you.
Bath & Body Works Candle Dupe
I’ve never really been one for candles, and its very difficult when you have a cat who just wants to get her paws on everything, but I like having them lit when I go and stay at my boyfriends. I spied this Bath and Body Works dupe over on The Sunday Girl and its a lil’ bargain at £2.99. They had several scents at my local B&M but being a lover of sweet fragrances, I settled on the Brown Sugar AllSpice candle. It smells incredible and I can’t wait to light it. If you’re a fan of more spicy scents, you’ll like Marshmellow Fireside or Radiant Red Maple.
Treat Yo’self to Home Furnishings
I love buying home furnishings or anything home related. Primark, H&M and Sainsburys are my current favourite store and I’ve found a few bargains recently, including this cute bowl at £2.50.
Bake Some Yummy Food
My aim this year, and there’s only three months left so I better start soon, is to start baking/cooking. I’ve just bought a slow cooker so I’m sure I can whip up something hearty and nutritious, but I also want to attempt a few cupcakes. I’m thinking of maybe making a few Halloween themed treats and seeing how it goes!
I’m hopeless at watching tv shows because I get bored so easily. I still haven’t finished Breaking Bad, but I’m gonna up my TV game and find some new shows for me and boyfriend to watch. We enjoyed Stranger Things and Him and Her, but Netflix is a struggle so if you have any recommendations I’d love to know!
