I might be 26 (nearly 27, no!) but I still get the urge to buy pretty, pretty stationery. I don't know if it's because of the time of year and all the shops are pushing their 'back to school' lines of notebooks, pretty pens and pencil cases, but today while I was in town something sort of took over and led me to the stationery stand, in Waterstones of all places.

As I milled around Wilkinsons I was really disappointed by the lack of stationery that wasn't too childish. The same went for WH Smith, all full of silly characters and not very grown up at all. Waterstones on the other hand have some lovely bits, of which I grabbed just a few. There's so much to choose from, I had to stay very far away from the Orla Kiely notebooks but happily browsed the little tables of to-do lists, pens and notebooks of all shapes and sizes.

I came away very happily with the above, which isn't really much but my bank account was kind of restricting and pay day isn't until next week so I think I did pretty well. I've noticed stationery these days is much more than just notebooks and pens, these days you get to do lists and entire books dedicated to list making, colouring books for adults, organisers, the list goes on!

You could say I didn't really need any of this as I'm not going back to school or Uni but I thought of it as a sort of back to work on Monday sort of treat. Also, the fact I've just got a brand new, shiny desk for my blogging is a good excuse!

Do you ever get the urge to buy new stationery? Let me know in the comments what you've bought recently.

  10. Love the design of that notebook, my go-to shop is usually paperchase but that can get quite pricey. I also quite like the bits you can find in Homesense, they're all quite reasonably priced
