Back to school

I always looked forward to back to school preparations - a new school jumper, maybe a pair of school shoes, and always, always new stationery. A family summer holiday in France would sometimes mean a trip to the hypermarche, for files, pencil cases and pens, plus notebooks always with the obligatory French graph paper.

Stationery shopping is still something I love, and Muji is definitely my favourite destination, with Paperchase a close second. For online shopping, The Paperie is great, with free delivery over £10.

A little shopping trip in London saw me come home with this stash - the stickers from Liberty and the erasable gen pen from Muji are my top picks! And my most useful purchase? The plastic wallet which I can slip a couple of make-up brushes into when I go away for the weekend, keeping them clean and tidy.

  1. Mmm, stationery. It all makes me feel warm and happy inside. My number one stationery item is Post-It Notes. They do not have to be actual Post-Its, non-branded is fine, as long as they are not so cheap that they don't peel easily. Do a post on Post-Its, will you? I would love to view a selction of sizes and designs and colours all at once.

    1. Do you know, post-its are coming up because they're going on my Christmas Stocking ideas post. Watch this space. x
