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!

Stationery Geek

I have a real passion for stationery. I am a stationery geek & I’m not ashamed to admit it. If I’m having a bad day, buying a new pen will cheer me right up! But that’s not why I made this most recent purchase. I pretty much love everything Gabriel over at The Green Gal does. But I have to limit my buying of stationery or I’ll be overrun with it!

However, when I saw her new range of notebooks, I knew I’d never be able to resist so treated myself to this lovely vintage typewriter one.

Typewriter notebook

I’m not sure what I’ll put in it but it’s bound to be craft related…blog ideas or jewellery designs or something like that. I love it so much! For the moment, I’m just keeping it on my desk & looking at it! x
