Stationary is my thing. For as long as I remember, I've been obsessed with pens, pencils, and notebooks. At age 12, my collection of stationary was ridiculous, and since then, I've (thankfully) downsized. But I'm still very much obsessed with stationary, the only difference is that now I try to carefully choose the pieces that I like. So here are some of my favourite pieces at the moment, that I will also be using once I'm back in school.
Notebooks and papers
As you can see in the previous image, I love small notebooks that are colourful. The first one is in a textured leather from Indigo. The pages are lined, and I use this one to make lists or to write things. The sprinkles tablets are from Flying Tiger (Tiger if you're in Europe), and it's squared paper. I usually use this one to study because I find it easier to make study notes on it.
For a few months now, I've been using an online planner, but I needed a paper one for school. Since I could never find one that I liked, I decided to make my own with the website 'Personal Planner'. I chose the size, the cover, how the inside is made, the language (Swedish because I wanted to learn), and additional dates that I wanted to include in my planner. I'm so happy with the result and I'm sure it's going to be super useful for school.
I've had the same highlighters for all my school life so I decided that it was time to make a change. These ones are from a Japanese brand called Zebra, and they are the 'Midliners'. There is a grey highlighter, which I find so cute, and the other colours are pastel colours. Each pen has two sides, the other side of the pen is a fine tip of the same colour. You can buy them on Amazon.
As a membership birthday gift, I received a gift card on Kikki-K's website (THE place for cute stationary). I decided to pick this monogrammed notepad to write thank-you notes and personalized notes to people. I also bought one of their fine tip pens.
Last Spring I also received kit to make letters for my future self. My parents know me well because I love this kind of stationary. Inside, there are different themed enveloppes for letters that you have to write to your future self. I have yet to write in it, but I'm super excited about it!
