FUNFAX!!!

Oh my GOD, did anyone else have a Funfax when they were a kid?! I just thought of them out of nowhere and a quick google has reminded me how BRILLIANT they were! For anyone that wasn’t lucky enough to have a Funfax, they were the kid’s version of a Filofax, they were around in the… Read more »

London Stationery Show 2014

On Tuesday afternoon I went to visit the London Stationery Show at the Business Design Centre: It was really an event for buyers, rather than little ol’ bloggers like me so it was mainly sales talk and people with suits on. But I just had a bit of wander round looking at the various stands…. Read more »

Stationery Organised Neatly: Turquoise

Inspired by Things Organised Neatly, here is the first in what I hope will be a new series of my stationery organised neatly, by colour. First up, turquoise. This one was VERY easy for me, as most things I own are turquoise (this is just a small selection). Items are as follows: Stencil: Linex Standard Lettering… Read more »

NEW WEBSITE FIND: Ohh Dear

Hello! Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet for a couple of weeks. It all got a bit busy, and then I was on holiday, skiing in the French Alps. Anyway, now I’m home, and back on it! The other day, a friend tweeted a link to this website (thanks Gav, if you read this!) and… Read more »

Skull n Cross Phones

Ok, that doesn’t *quite* work, but I’m trying to illustrate is how brilliant these iPhone shaped notebooks are from Paperscreen, which I originally saw on Ed Jelley. Such a good idea. Very geeky, but I think it would look very satisfying on my desk! Would also be great if they provided an elastic so you could hold your… Read more »

Rain, rain go away…

So after a bit of research, here’s my picks: And I’ve written about this one before: They’ve also recently made a series of… Read more »

Field Notes: From Seeds

This is a great video from Field Notes, explaining where their product has come from. Field Notes co-founder Aaron Draplin shows his vast collection of the agricultural memo books that inspired their range of note books. His passion is infectious, as you’ll see, he’s so watchable! Here are the ones I have: The manila ones are… Read more »

New Brand Find: OCTAEVO

How cool is this bookmark! I love it. I recently discovered OCTAEVO, a stationery company based in Barcelona. Their products looks lovely, and I think this one is especially fun. They don’t have much yet, as I think they are quite a new company, so hopefully their product range will grow. Check out the site… Read more »

It arrived: Hobonichi Planner 2014!!

So what I didn’t realise when I ordered it was that they were on holiday until 7th Jan (seems odd to me for people in the diary business to close for such a long time over christmas,  but what do I know…) so it only arrived a few days ago, and of course I wasn’t… Read more »

New Brand Find: MUCU

My boyfriend bought me a really nice little notepad for Christmas – he knows stationery is the way to my heart! (He also bought me Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats which was a TOTAL dream come true and I have wanted for years, but that’s a different story!!!). As you can see it’s a reporter style… Read more »
