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 »

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 »

Papier

Before I start this post I just wanted to say that I think it will sound like an advert, but it’s not… I just really like this brand. Normally I’m quite anti these personalised card websites (Moonpig, funky pigeon etc.), but Papier seems different (if you’re unfamiliar with the concept, these websites allow you to… Read more »

Graf von Faber-Castell Perfect Pencil

Over a year ago I met a guy in the pub who had a Graf von Faber-Castell Perfect Pencil. To me this was the height of luxury and I was so amazed that I took (an extremely awful) picture of it and wrote a blog post. Cut to now and I have one in my… Read more »

The Society of Crossed Pencils

Today I am declaring that I am  proud member of The Society of Crossed Pencils I’ve been a fan of And Smile Studio for aaaages (especially all the PERFECT Wes Anderson illustrations!), and actually sat opposite the lady behind it, Viktorija, at a recent flower arranging workshop I went to, but didn’t realise until I… 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 »

Howl Paper Studio: Origami Notecards

I hadn’t heard of Howl Paper Studio until Christie got in touch to introduce them, but I’m so glad she did! They’re based in NYC and printed locally by Letterpress. They asked if I’d like to try one of their notecard collections and without hesitation I chose the origami set. Mainly for the fact that… Read more »

Moustache Stationery Unboxing Video

I’ve done another video, haven’t I?! It’s been quite a while. The sound and lighting aren’t the best quality, as I’m not really set up in my new house yet… But I am going to try and do videos more regularly now. I’ve unboxed last month’s Moustache Stationery subscription box – the theme is black… Read more »

Moustache Stationery Blogging

Dear reader, I’ve been cheating on you… I’ve been moonlighting over at the Moustache Stationery blog, providing a bit of content for those guys. In case you’re interested, here’s a round up of what I’ve been writing about over the last month. Why Do We Love Stationery So Much? I pondered why we’re all so obsessed… Read more »
