How do you use your notebooks?

Until a few days ago, I’d never really thought about this before, but I noticed I have a very definite way in which I use notebooks. I’m going to name it the Mullet technique, i.e. business in the front, party in the back. When I say party though, I kind of just mean messy… I… Read more »

Rifle Paper Co.’s New Website

Pretty dreamy isn’t it? I love the redesign and going on the site is very dangerous as I want EVERYTHING! How that they even made a boring old legal pad look desirable?! I just a quick look look through the new pages and these are my top picks: This last one is mainly because I’m… Read more »

New Brand Find: Lovely Pigeon

I think the first time I saw Lovely Pigeon‘s notebooks was in Smug, but I didn’t know who they were by. It was only once I discovered their Instagram that I found out what their name is, and that the Scottish company make lots of lovely stuff! Their trademark look is copper foil in geometric… Read more »

WANT LIST: Smythson Pocket Notebook

I’m starting a new series, the WANT LIST. My problem at the moment is that I keep buying all the stationery things I want, rather than just covet them. So in the interest of not being bankrupt, I will be posting about lovely things I have seen but don’t necessarily NEED to own. So, my… Read more »

Shop Visit: Pedlars

A couple of weeks ago, I FINALLY got myself over to Pedlars, just off Portobello Road. I’ve been meaning to head over for ages, as they seem to be one of the few places that stock Blackwing pencils. I can’t recommend the shop highly enough really, it’s great looking and the staff are really friendly… Read more »

The School of Life: Mood Notebooks

A friend was showing me the sights in Stoke Newington a couple of weeks ago and we wandered into a really sweet shop called Search & Rescue. It has loads of great stuff, but of course I was drawn straight to the stationery section. I was looking for a present for my soon-to-be-qualified-as-a-teacher best friend,… Read more »

Knitter’s Notebook

This little beauty arrived yesterday! It’s a knitter’s notebook, £10 by True Brit Knits. I saw it the other day on The Well Appointed Desk (thanks!) and had to order one. I really like the simplicity of the foil on the front and here’s what’s on the inside: The inside cover has a knitting glossary, and… Read more »

Rain, rain go away…

All this horrible weather (for those of you reading elsewhere, the UK has been even rainier than usual of late) has got me thinking about notebooks that can handle the wet weather. 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 »

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 »
