A few nice things…

It’s been a little while since I shared some nice things from around the internet, so here’s some cool stuff I’ve seen recently: Comp. This Kickstarter is a new, modern take on the American classic Composition notebook. It’s only got 3 days to go and has already reached it’s goal, but it looks pretty good to me… Read more »

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 »

Pencil Shaving Flowers by Haruka Misawa

Stationery “staples”: Bic & Staedtler

The folks at National Stationery Week sent me a bag of goodies, including brands like Bic and Staedtler, which I consider to be office supply/stationery cupboard staples (no pun intended).

I’m not someone that likes to get too Christmassy, too early, but I think now that we’re in mid-November it’s ok to start thinking about buying gifts. So I thought I’d kick things off with some stationery gifts for the guy in your life with some great stuff from Huckberry. I mean, to be fair,… Read more »

Moustache Stationery: Palomino

I realise it’s only been a few weeks since I posted about the last Moustache Stationery box, but I’m trying to get back in sync, so forgive the doubling up. Anyway, this one is worth seeing. I actually said “NO WAY” out loud when I opened this box! It has a whole box of Blackwing… Read more »
