The fun of ‘back to school’ stationery hauls shouldn’t be limited to students. I have just come back from two weeks of holiday, and I’m starting a new job. Reason enough to load up on stationery for some ‘back to work’ motivation.
I’m in the United Kingdom, so all websites linked are UK based. Nothing in this post is sponsored – I just really like all these items!
I originally had my eyes set on the standard Stabilo pastel highlighter set, but they were sold out in every shop I went to. But when I came across these Paperchase pastel highlighters, I knew it was fate.
Of course, I ended up still getting the Stabilo pastel highlighters when they came back in stock!
I didn’t own a pencil case before this haul, so I ended up always having stray pens and pencils in my bag – not ideal. This black pencil case is perfect for me, small enough to fit into my purse easily, but large enough to hold all my essentials, like a small ruler and these gorgeous rose gold pencils.
And, of course, when getting a pack of new pencils, you need a pack of new erasers! I love how every brand has jumped on the pastel train!
When it comes to notebooks, I like to have a lot of different sizes. The large notebook is one of the luxury notebooks by Katie Leamon, which I got from Waterstones. The small notebook is blank inside, which I’ll keep in my purse for quick note taking. I got that one at Sass & Belle!
One of my friends / colleagues gave me the ‘things to do’ notepad as a leaving gift from my old company – it’s not a secret that I love stationery! I love the rose gold clip on this.
I like to take notes of everything, but balancing a notebook on your lap or while standing up isn’t great. When I saw this ‘clipfolio’ on Anthropologie’s website, I was sold. It has a clipboard on the front and it flips open to reveal a notepad.
Now the last thing that remains is figuring out how to break it to my new colleagues that I’m a massive stationery nerd.
