Esmie – Luxury Stationery

esmie2

I work in a stationery shop and it’s amazing to see how excited people get about the products whether it be a simple desk pad, a new notebook or the weird and wonderful world of shaped post it notes (I’m looking at you brief notes!). It seems everyone is in on the stationery love and to be honest anything that makes life easier and a little prettier then I’m all for it.

Papergang – September Subscription

dsc_2248

Alright stationery lovers it’s that time again – Papergang time. I think you’re gonna love September’s box because it’s got a helluva lot of goodies. First and foremost the packaging is blue dip dye so I was instantly excited when it arrived in the post. So let’s get stuck in! ( I apologise for my repetitive images and my new succulent plant – I got over excited)

I fell in love straight away with the weekly planner. I’ll be honest I’ve fallen off the wagon when it comes to planning and actually using my diary – it all starts off well with good intentions but slowly disintegrates. BUT this beautiful little gem is exactly what I was after. A plain undated diary with just enough space for writing what needs done and space at the side for appointments etc. It’s simple, effective and even has a zip-lock at the back to store stuff in.

The gift wrap paper is designed by British Illustrator Jessica Willan. Its features fun colourful animals complete with celebratory hats. I think it’s a bit quirky and will be doing a post all about Jessica and her other works in a couple days. To complete the box is a little post it pad with “let’s get this sh*t done!” humorous and useful – just wish I worked in an office to properly use it, ah well life goes on.

Beautiful Barcelona

I’ve just come home from a wonderful little family holiday to Spain. Whilst we were situated in a bog standard resort in Salou we decided to have a day trip to Barcelona. It took about an hour and a half to get there but it was worth every minute. I fell in love with this city – the culture, the hussle and bussle, the food, but most of all the art.

Gifts – Magpie

There’s so much about being British that is pretty great – drinking tea, beautiful landscapes and a vast array of wildlife but none so great as our high street shopping. So it’s no surprise that there are some incredible gift suppliers out there and I so happened to find a gem – magpieline.co.uk
