Do girls ever grow out of their love of stationery?! The only part of going back to school in September that I loved was choosing new notebooks and a pencil case. Although my stationery tastes have changed a little since then, I’m still excited by a new notebook or planner. Thankfully my blogging partner in crime, Emma, shares this love!

On a recent trip to shopping trip TK Maxx, we spied these beauties! The perfect, marble design, planners. And when we saw they were 18 month planners starting in June we were at the till in seconds. In fairness we do need them. It’s completely impossible to plan a blog, without one! The layout is perfect, as I do love a tick list.


And if you’re really quick TK Maxx has some Kate Spade notebooks on-line, which are obviously far cheaper than they should be (gotta love the Maxx!).










I was also excited to see a Kikki.K store has opened at my local shopping centre in Kingston. This turquoise 18 mth planner is absolutely gorgeous and currently reduced to £28.80. If you do live by one of their stores, it’s well worth a visit. I also love all the perspex and gold stationery and dream of a home office to fill with such goodies!







I’m totally won over in terms of planners helping you stay organised and feel on top of things. For some reason once you commit to writing it down, you end up ticking off tasks and becoming more productive. It also helps me sleep better, as if I suddenly remember something in the evening, I write it down and feel more relaxed, knowing it won’t be forgotten.

In the past I’ve also had an Erin Condren one – which is the creme de la creme of planners! And whilst I loved it, the combined price of the planner and shipping to the UK is too much to justify. But if this is your thing, look at her site, as the planners and accessories are so nice.
