Moustache Stationery: January Box

The theme of the January Moustache Stationery box was Coffee and Tea. Here’s what came in the box! A Tombow Kei Coat Double-Sided Highlighter. I love getting Japanese products in the original packaging. It’s much more interesting than the english language packaging! This highlighter will be really useful – a fat end for highlighting and a… Read more »

Moustache Stationery: Notes & Doodles

In my usual style, I’m often about a month behind on Moustache Stationery subscription boxes! But I suppose that’s better than ruining it for anyone… Last month’s box (received in November) had the theme Notes and Doodles. I’d say this is probably the least strictly curated of the boxes so far, they’ve often been very… Read more »

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 »

Is this really a Magic Pen?

Well, in a word: No. But you probably already knew that. I mean, it’s just a felt tip. A very good one mind, but I just wanted to clear that up before you read this whole post and get to the end wondering what the magic is about. This pen is pretty similar to the… Read more »

Bureau Direct October Haul: Diamine Shimmer Inks!

Along with everyone else, I’ve been very curious to try out the Diamine Shimmer Inks, and Bureau Direct (check out their fancy new website) have made this happen! Their resident ink expert (inkpert? inxpert?) Mishka was kind enough to send me a few samples from the new range, so yesterday I had a play! And… Read more »

Bic Biro and Razor Advert

This is an oldie, but a goodie. It’s from 2008 but I hadn’t come across it until now. This is a print advert from Bic (published in The Netherlands), in which they advertise two of the products they’re most know for in a really clever way! On page 3, a picture of a man which… Read more »

Moustache Stationery: Made in America

On my life theme at the moment of being just a bit behind on everything… Here’s last month’s Moustache Stationery box! The theme was “Made in America”, which fits nicely as this was the first time the boxes are being shipped from the U.S. (previously they were sent from the U.K.). This is probably a… Read more »

Meticulous Ink Hand Lettering Workshop @ Snowden Flood

London Design Festival slightly passed me by this year. It’s a real shame as there’s usually so many incredible and inspiring things to see, and so much stationery! Unfortunately it coincided with a really busy work week for me so I didn’t get to go along to any of the shows. I did however manage… Read more »

Zebra Fude Brush Pen

When I did my Cult Pens Mini Haul back in April, I threw a couple of brush pens in my basket with the intention of trying them out. 5 months later and I’m finally getting around to it! One of the pens I chose is the Zebra Fude Pen Brush, which was a very reasonable… Read more »

August Bureau Direct Haul 1: J. Herbin Emerald of Chivor

It’s been the talk of the town! The stationery town anyway… I was lucky enough to get one of Bureau Direct’s first batch of the long awaited J. Herbin Emerald of Chivor inks! There are a couple of people who have already done brilliant posts about this ink, who I couldn’t begin to compete with, so… Read more »
