Moustache Stationery: Shabby Chic

I’m going to start by saying that I think Shabby Chic is the wrong name for this Moustache Stationery box… I think it should be called “Lifestyle Blogger’s Dream”. I mean, look at it, there’s rose gold, perspex, blush, mint, geometrics, pastels. Even the card saying what was in the box had marble print. Need… Read more »

Visiting Fred Aldous Manchester

As you may have seen on Instagram, a couple of weeks ago I visited Fred Aldous‘s original shop. I was on a hen do in Manchester and where ordinarily on a weekend like that there isn’t time to wander off and go stationery shopping, luckily on the last day we went for brunch around the… Read more »

Inside the beautiful blue box…

I probably feel about seeing this box how other girls feel about a Mulberry shopping bag, or a Louboutin box (not that I’m completely adverse to that though, to be fair).

Book Review: Nib & Ink

A couple of weekends ago, I managed to actually sit down for two afternoons in a row and work my way through Nib & Ink, Chiara Perano’s modern calligraphy book. You may have seen Chiara’s work before through her company, Lamplighter London. I should preface this review by saying using the book wasn’t my introduction to… Read more »

You may have seen me mention TAAB London a couple of times before, but I’ve been meaning to properly feature them ages! The designs are the work of London based Thomasin Arnold-Baker, who train at Central St. Martins. They sent me an intro package a little while ago, and as I keep using all the bits… Read more »

Moustache Stationery: Bullet Journaling

I’m a bit late on this one but I still wanted to share April’s Moustache Stationery box because it was a really good one! The first thing that struck me was the new packaging, with these stationery graphics that I think are on point. The content was focussed on giving you everything you need to… Read more »

Pencil Shaving Flowers by Haruka Misawa

A photo posted by Haruka Misawa (@misawadesigninstitute) on Mar 5, 2016 at 5:57am PST Via Colossal, I saw these beautiful paper sculptures by Japanese designer Haruka Misawa. You can read about the idea behind it here, but essentially she noticed when sharpening pencils that the shavings resembled flowers and decided to try and reconstruct this… Read more »

Stationery Organised Neatly: All White?

Today’s Stationery Organised Neatly is concentrating on all white everything. I knocked this one up in a bit of a hurry, and it’s not one of my best… But still, I think it shows off a nice selection of white things. Items as follows: (from top left): Vintage labels from Present and Correct (featured on… Read more »
