Need a new notebook?

I am a self-confessed stationery geek. Whenever I’m feeling down, a trip to Paperchase or a stationers will always perk me up. There’s something very calming & uplifting about new pens, new notebooks or diaries. My stationery buying did get a little bit out of control. During a clear out, I found 5 brand new notebooks. 5. Nothing special about them, but I knew that I had to ban myself from buying any new ones until they were gone. Well, I’ve got one left. And the one I use to take to meetings is starting to fall apart. So I need a new notebook. I’m still using one that I bought from The Green Gables, as it’s lightweight & great for lists, notes & doodles. But I really want a hardback one that’s nice for meetings & keeping track of progress on projects that I’m working on. Here’s a few that I’ve found.

C notebookThis is currently my favourite one, as it has my initials on it. Plus, I really like the colour. £6.00 from Magpie.

mint journalI really like the colour & the pattern on the cover & I think that it looks luxurious! £13.95 from Nancy & Betty.

vintage notebook

I know these aren’t hard backed but they are just so delicious! Vintage notebooks? Yes! $4.00 from Oh, Hello Friend!

personalised notebookI love the idea of a personalised notebook! Especially as my name is tricky to spell. Cute! £5.86 from Letter C Design.


Quite dark, but I love the uniqueness of these notebooks. Plus they have a great story! £17.00 from Deadraven.

All I have to do now is decide which one I want. Choose one. Hmmmm… decisions, decisions! Which would you pick? Or have you found a great notebook elsewhere? Let me know!

For regular readers, friends & family, you’ll know that I am a huge stationery geek. There’s almost nothing that stationery can’t improve. So whenever I stumble across a stationery website, I feel it is my duty to share it with other stationery geeks. This time, it’s the Nancy and Betty Studio. I saw Uppercasemag tweet about a new typewriter they had in stock & I would love to have my own, even if it was just for display purposes. Alas, I don’t currently have the space. (Note: I said currently. Just give me time to declutter & I’ll find the space!)

I really like ‘Practically Perfect’ range & think the cards with badges are awesome! I will definitely be getting some of those. I am hugely tempted by the typewriters so will be keeping an eye on them & an even closer one on my bank balace so as soon as I can, I can get my own!

Bread and Jam

This weeks Tuesday Treat is from Bread & Jam. I ordered this lovely new notebook from them last week. I needed a new A4 notebook & couldn’t find one anywhere – until I searched in Etsy and came up with this. They have lots of lovely stationery and cards. I really like the clocks they sell too!
