My Stationary Favourites

I’m a self confessed stationary junkie, and so when I find cute stationary I will buy it.  I have my selected favourites, and I’m always using them.  I use cute stationary all the time; when I’m revising, doing homework and just making notes – I have enough to sink a ship and figured I would share with you guys some of my favourite bits.

I love ring-binder folders, and I use them for everything; they’re so useful for storing my revision notes in for GCSEs and considering I’m in year 10, I assume I’m going to start to build up quite the collection!  Wilko do such amazing, but cheap stationary and their folders are no exception.  This one is so pretty, and I am in love with the gold foil writing ‘Hello Lovely’ – plus, it was only £1.25! I’m going to use this for English at the moment, and I’m going to gather myself a collection of pretty folders for each subject, it just helps to make revising that little bit easier!

Revision cards are so useful, however sometimes I find them to be a little small or flimsy feeling, so I like to use these Silvine record cards, which are only £1.00 for 100!  They’re great for writing quotes on to learn, and then I like to stick them onto my wall so I can see them every day and they’ll ingrain in my memory.  I like that they’re a clean white ruled card, and they’re not super flimsy either.

I’m a total highlighter junkie, and Stabilo Boss make the best highlighters.  I love the skinny flash ones, because they’re so easy to fit inside pencil cases, and they’re easier to hold than the fatter chunky ones.  Only, they run out quicker and don’t have as many colour options.  The chunky ones come in huge packs of eight with really interesting colours, and I love them because they’re so vibrant.

On the topic of pens, I love fineliners.  Staedtler do some great ones, and I really like to use these fineliners.  They’re great for mindmaps, or writing notes in my planner.

Finally, possibly the most used out of all my favourites, my planner.  Because all my homework for school is online, I love to keep track of it all in a planner like this cute one from paperchase, and then highlight it when I’m done. It helps me to keep track of everything I’m doing day to day, and I can stay more organised.

So, I hope you all liked these favourites.  I’m planning on doing a whole huge post on revision and how I revise, although I know it’s not very apt considering GCSEs have started (how did they go, by the way, for those of you who’ve been doing them recently?) but better late than never right!  Anyway, I have my Year 10 exams soon, so I’m trying my hardest to start revision for those and get decent grades, which is unlikely but we can pray!

Room Decor Wishlist

Hi guys!

As most of you are aware, I moved down to Wiltshire recently.  If you’re not sure why then go back through my blog posts recently and you’ll find many like One big update and Update explaining it (in detail, I do not recommend them!  I just had to ramble and de-stress myself!).  Anyway, during the move I managed to obtain a huge room and an en suite!  Words cannot express how grateful I am for my room, I’d say I spend 98% of my time in here (the remaining 2% are spent eating tea or foraging for food in an empty fridge, story of my life.).  Anyway, my old room used to be a floraly-vintage, verging on shabby chic but not really getting there, reflection of my eleven year old self trying to copy beauty bloggers styled, but now I fancy a fresh change.  And recently, along with most of the We Heart It & Tumblr population, I’ve fallen in love with the copper and blush and marble type style.  Everything has to be crisp white (which it is at the moment so I have a perfect base) with hints of marble, copper/rose gold and pinky/blushy colours.  You’ll see when I show you everything I’ve been obsessing over at 2am when I have nothing to do!

I’m also planning on doing a room tour when I have finished my room.  However, this wont be in the next few months, because I’m paying for my room myself and I’m not a millionare, I’ll be doing this gradually.  But make sure to comment if you’d like to see a room tour!!

I’m going to stop rambling and we’ll just get into the post properly now.

rose gold paper clip primarni

So, I really love this.  It’s rose gold/copper for a start (if you click the picture you can be lead to where it is sold).  It’s only two pounds, so perfectly on budget.  Not that my maximum budget is two pounds, but I digress. I always write myself notes, whether they’re to remind me to do a blog post, to remind me to do homework, whatever – do you get the jist that they’re usually reminders, I’m very forgetful. Anyway, I figured I could use this to hold up notes and they would look pretty and catch my eye as I leave my room.

copper frame uo

This copper frame is from Urban Outfitters & I really love it.  For £12.00, I think it’s really decent value and so interesting.  I don’t have enough photo frames in my bedroom and I don’t have anything hanging on the walls so hopefully this might make it look more interesting.

geo cage light typo

This is gorgeous.  You probably can’t tell BECAUSE THE QUALITY IS SO BAD but its a rose gold geometric cage light.  And it’s in the sale for £4.99, meaning I can buy two because I have two overhead ceiling lamps.  I mean who doesn’t want rose gold wire diamonds hanging above their head.

Urban outfiters, you warm my soul.  Why you gotta be so expensive though?  I really want a wire hanging thing like this so I can pin cute quotes to it.  But £40.00, seriously like find me some chicken wire and some spray paint and I’ll turn into a professional DIY-er.  But seriously this is so gorgeous.

h and m cushion

I think we can safely say that H&M Home is amazing.  I literally love everything they have in their ranges.  And it’s really affordable, so that’s a plus!  This cushion would look so nice on my bed, I’m thinking two of these and then maybe some more decorative ones.  I think the key is to vary sizes.

Next up comes Ikea, affordable and addictive.  This is nearly everything out of the Skurar series, which you’ll more than likely have seen everywhere.  I already use the plant pots to house makeup brushes and it’s very effective.  However, I love the whole range and if I could I’d buy it all!  It’s so cheap and pretty and ugh!


Anyway, that’s not the full extent of everything I want but really it’s as much as I could force down your throat without you begging me to stop.

Thanks for reading, I really hope you enjoyed it.   Apologies for not posting all day yesterday.  I’d been shopping into bath (I only got two bits but it was more for a look around bath) so now I can tick something off my Summer Bucket List  already!  I’m also going back to do intense purse damage for my birthday so expect a pretty damn big haul!
