I love this time of year because the shops are full of Back-to-School stuff - including moutains of stationery. I got a few bits from Tesco, Dealz and Paperchase, and I thought I'd show them to you today and talk about some bits on my wishlist.
Sharpies: €4.50 | Sticky Arrows: €1.25 | Mini Sticky Notes Cube: €1.75
I saw Sara with these Sharpies on Snapchat and had to copy her, they're gorgeous colours. I got the arrow stickers and post-its for book reviewing and studying for the Driver Theory Test. Tesco have tonnes of stuff in at the moment and most of it is very reasonably priced, I know they've got another large Sharpie pack for €10 - really good value considering the price of an individual one.
Notebook: €1.49 | Gel Pen Set: €1.49
Dealz have a great range of stationery all year round - these gel pens are very neon and brilliant for headers or numbers if you're a list freak like me. The notebook is nothing special - but I thought the pastel colour was cute. The pens do run out pretty quickly - you can see from the pink one how much it has gone down and I only used it a few times - but for €1.49 who's complaining?
Pink Zip File: €2.25 | 10 Subject Notebook: €8.50 | Address Book: €7.00 | Planner: €5.50
What brought me to the Paperchase website in the first place was the mention of this planner by Joanne in the Lovely Girlie Bits July Monthly Favourites video. The rest of the stuff just kinda....fell into the basket. Here's a better look at the planner;
Ban.do 17-month agenda - Florabunda By now, you've all seen the ban.do "I Am Very Busy" diary that Sera took Snapchat by storm with. As the weeks have gone by, I've completely gone off it in favour of the floral version, or even the gold. I've got my pre-order in at Hippenings, who launch on August 28th. The agendas will be available in September. If you'd like to pre-order too, head over to the Hippenings Facebook Page.
Gorjuss Thank You Card Set Santoro's Gorjuss range is one of my favourites - I have a couple of the notebooks but would love one of these notecard sets. Postage from the website is a killer, so it's definitely a Parcel Motel job, but I can't justify it at the minute due to the bad €/£ exchange rate. Ditto with the magnetic bookmarks, they're so nice but I just wish they were a little easier to come by!
Bic Cristal Fun Pens this pack is under €3 in Tesco at the moment, so it'll be coming home with me on Thursday. Bic pens are my favourite, and I had this pack before but used them up. I USED THEM UP. Never happens. Okay, I lost one of the green ones but I used the rest!
Kate Spade Polka Dot Agenda & Chic Happens Journal Both of these are available from My Shining Armour at the moment (who also stocks ban.do) - I love that the journal has six ribbon bookmarks included. I love the look of all Kate Spade's stationery, it's clean and beautiful.
Do I need more notebooks or journals? Nope. But I'm also thinking now that I'd quite like another to-do list book or some heart shaped post-its or a glitter pencil case...........
It's a disease.
