New In: Stationery & Other Things I Didn't Need
Just recently I published a post all about my hoarding obsession with magazines, but what I didn’t tell you guys is that I have another hoarding obsession…and that obsession is stationery. Take me to a place that sells pastel coloured washi tape, cute stickers or scented highlighters and I’ll probably have bought the entire store before you can even say the word ‘stationery’. The thing is, I don’t even need this stuff, but I just can’t help myself! We all have our guilty pleasures, right?
On this occasion I decided to hit up two of my go-to stationery stores, Paper Smiths and Choosing Keeping. Both of these sites stock THE most gorgeous pieces and have everything you could imagine; from coffee table books to fancy shmancy pencil cases and pens. For a stationery addict like me, this is heaven! If your willpower is weak, stay well away.
I picked up a number of things on my stationery spree and I’m in love with them all! Arguably my favourite things from this haul are my beautiful new cases from Choosing Keeping. These babies make me happier than they should. Just look at the way they glisten and shine! I picked up one glasses case and one pencil case and the fact that they match makes my heart jump for joy. They’re super fragile so I’ll most likely keep these on my desk rather than rolling around at the bottom of my bag, but they look absolutely stunning and I know that they’ll be a joy to use.
There’s something about acquiring new stationery that makes me feel motivated to be super productive. Whether it’s starting a fresh page of a notebook or opening up the lid on a brand new pen, having new stationery makes me want to get to work and start ticking things off of my ever-growing to do list.
Those are just a few bits that I’ve acquired recently, make sure that you head on over to my YouTube channel to watch my ‘Stationery Haul‘ video where I show you a some more of the beautiful stationery pieces that I bought!

I’m always looking for new things to add to my collection so I’d love to hear your recommendations!
