Gift Guide for Guys, with Huckberry

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 »

Youse Vintage Stationery Haul

I did a post about Youse when they first launched at the beginning of this year. They have a selection of new, vintage and original stationery, as well as art prints. Basically, it’s a very cool site and you should check it out. I hadn’t actually bought anything from there until a few weeks ago… Read more »

The Poundshop!

Since I moved to Peckham I’ve been slightly overwhelmed by the plethora of pound shops in the area (for those of you not in the UK, these are shops where you can buy anything in there for a pound, funnily enough). I keep getting told off for popping in to get some toothpaste and coming… Read more »

Koh-I-Noor Magic Pencil

About a month ago my boyfriend came home with a treat in his bag for me and it was a Koh-I-Noor Magic Pencil. It’s not exactly “magic” but it’s a colour pencil, in which the lead has several different colours, and it makes a cool effect. It’s fun looking too. It’s quite a fat pencil,… Read more »

CARAN d’ACHE Swiss Wood Pencil Review

I’ve heard a lot about Swiss wood but hadn’t got my hands on one until it came in one of my Moustache Stationery subscription boxes. As usual, I’m going to point out at this point (no pun intended) that I’m not the best reviewer and if you want something more thorough, you can check out… Read more »

Sharpeners Galore! Topcolor Sharpeners

My mum randomly sent me a link to the Topcolors Sharpeners a while back and I’ve been meaning to put an order in and post about it for ages. Last week I remembered to put in a order and I’m so glad I did. It’s basically got all the sharpeners you could ever want, and… Read more »

Wait… M&S do Stationery?!

I found out via Forks & Brushes‘ post last week that M&S do stationery! I knew they did cards and griftwrap etc. but it managed to pass me buy thus far that they do a full range of desktop and paper stuff. It does feature some slightly twee and girly stuff, as you might imagine,… Read more »
