Sharing My Other Obsession: A New Item of Stationery

notebook 4 2305

Other than makeup and beauty products, my other obsession is stationery.  I’ve even dedicated a Board to it on Pinterest (check it out here www.pinterest.com/franklyflawless) and I can’t wait to add more cool pins to this Board.

I was also one of those kids in school that looked forward to buying a new pencil-case complete with a ruler, rubber, sharpener, pencil and pen at the start of a new term….you know what I’m talking about?  Well, little has changed really and even though I work in an office where I have easy access to the basics, it’s all too functional and boring so I prefer to buy my own pretty notepads and post it notes, even though everyone around me thinks I am crazy.

Now, when it comes to blogging, it was only inevitable that I would jump at the opportunity to seek out something where I could record my thoughts and ideas for posts and that’s where this gorgeous List Book comes in handy, which I picked up from Paperchase for just £8.

I’m not quite ready for a whole planner yet but I wanted something which would serve as a notebook and to-do list in one and this List Book is great as not only does it have a to-do list, there’s also a ruled tear-off notepad on the right, but the bit I love the most is that it has a selection of different sticky notes, ideal for when I want to book mark anything.

I’ve already been using this and as well being really pretty, it serves it’s purpose too and it’s compact enough to fit easily into my handbag so I can carry it on the go as you just never know when inspiration for a new blog post is going to come your way!

So, are you a stationery geek like me or what’s your “other” obsession….?  Let me know in the comments below. x

    Stationary used to be my BIG obsession. But I never really used everything I’d bought and now I’m stocked for the rest of my life 😀

    Everyone, feel free to check out my blog 🙂 http://aberlovecoraline.blogspot.com

    • Sometimes things can just lie there, i do know what you mean, but being stocked up is pretty good as next time you need anything it’s just there! xx

  • I have so much stationery. I have a large filofax and so much scrapbooking paper to make dividers and dashboards for it, as well as all my planner stamps and stickers. It is really a problem for me, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

  • I am currently on the hunt for the “perfect” stationary/planner and these are so cute! I was debating on a Kikki.K planer or Bando one, but I like your point of having a simpler option. And pure genius on the Pinterest board dedicated to it 🙂 (I have to steal that idea!) xo

    • I have seen the Bando planners and they look divine but i think at the moment my schedule isn’t really that hectic so not sure if i would fill it up hence a simpler option like this is great for now. sabiha x

  • If there is one thing I love, it’s stationary!! Officially obsessed. That list book is adorable! I WANT IT 🙂

  • If I saw the same notebook in a shop, it would definitely end up in my shopping basket! I LOVE stationary and can easily spend an hour looking at different notebooks, folders and organizers. Good choice, Sabiha! Your new notebook looks very-very cute! 🙂

    • Oh I know, I am exactly the same…you can never have enough! xx

  • I really need to get my hands on one of these!

  • This notepad looks amazing! It got notes in every size you need, and the to-do list can be really helpful. The design is also really cute. Have you ever considered of getting a planner? I think you are going to love using one!
