Baron Fig are best known for their notebooks, starting with an incredibly successful Kickstarter for The Confident, back in 2013. Since then, they have extended their range of notebooks, released several special edition items, and some writing instruments. The latest of their writing instruments is The Archer pencil.

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 »

Graf von Faber-Castell Perfect Pencil

It’s been around a few years but until a couple of weeks ago, I somehow hadn’t made it inside (probably because I’m usually on Columbia Road during the flower market and it’s so hectic that I just get my flowers and… Read more »

Via Its Nice That, I saw that a really interesting exhibition will be happening in London later this month, called The Secret Life of The Pencil. Alex Hammond and Mike Tinney have taken super detailed photos of the graphite tools used by some famous and important individuals. I don’t know whether I can put it… Read more »

What I actually use every day + the decoy pen pot

First off, please forgive this rubbish photo – definitely not up to my usual standard but let me explain why… Yesterday I was sitting at my desk at work, and started to think about how, when I have SO MUCH amazing stationery at home, I really only use the bare basics at work. I thought… Read more »

Betty & Walter Pencil Cases

I love these pencil cases from Betty & Walter. They come in various shapes and sizes, and I styled some of my favourites up with stationery: The Strawberry Jam Pouch (that’s the shape) in Party Rain British Cloud (that’s the pattern – and let me tell you it couldn’t be more relevant to what’s going… Read more »

Well, I’ve got JUST the thing for you! These temporary tattoos are by Tattly who, in their words, are a “temporary tattoo store for… Read more »
