Marble notebookFloral pencil caseSticky notesVeronica Dearly list padRaindrops list book

One thing that I completely forgot about when I was applying for uni, was how much stationery I’m going to need to get and when I remembered, I was SO EXCITED. I’ve always been a big lover of stationery and I already have quite a collection of notebooks and pens but if starting a Masters degree is not a great excuse to go out and treat myself to some fancy list pads and a pencil case, then what is? I’ve already gone out and got myself a new uni bag (a tan coloured Hogwarts satchel – thank you, Primark!) so now I need to go and get the items to fill it.

I’m well aware that when I did my undergraduate degree I mainly used those big pads of A4 lined paper and everything got in a mess and disorganised, so this time around I’m going to try to be a bit more tidy and organised with my note taking. If I get a nice notebook, I’ll want to keep it looking nice – something that can be quite hard when you’re sitting in a lecture scribbling down notes as fast as the lecturer is talking! My go-to shops for stationery are usually places like Paperchase, WHSmith, Wilko and I’ve noticed that Tesco have a great selection in at the moment. I also love supporting small, independent brands and I’m going to be getting myself a nice list pad from Veronica Dearly to put on my desk and encourage me to get shit done.

Speaking of small, independent brands, Kerry Lyons is a graphic designer and owner of Kerry Lyons Co a design-led, boutique paper goods studio founded in 2013 and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the the Imperfect Life Planner. The Imperfect Life Planner has been designed to help aide your mental health as well as keep you organised. There’s many different aspects to the planner as well as the expected diary, including motivational quotes, stickers and colouring in pages. There’s only 4 days left of the Kickstarter campaign, so if you would like to find out more and perhaps back it, head over to the Kickstarter page.

    Why is it that stationary makes us so happy? There is something lovely about purchasing it at this time of the year ready for the academic year to begin.
