Hi, my name’s Corinne and I have a problem.
WAIT BEFORE YOU LEAVE NO IT’S NOT ABOUT THAT, THIS POST IS ABOUT NOTEBOOKS DIDN’T YOU READ THE DAMN TITLE C’MON.It was a lovely day out, when I wandered into TK Maxx, and it was brought to my attention that I may have a slight obsession with notebooks. For every one that I pointed out to my pal, she very kindly reminded my that I already had 4 at home, and 3 in my basket (all of which are still entirely unused, what can I say aren’t we all intimidated by an empty notebook?)
So today I thought I’d show you guys my little collection, as a haul of sorts, with a little run down as to why I love notebooks, and why I will never stop myself from buying more.
At the end of last summer, just before the start of the school year, I decided to pick up some new school supplies to see me through the year, and one of my favourite picks was this (originally) plain lavender notebook, because it’s A5 size, so it easily fits into my backpack, but it’s still big enough for me to make notes in. I chose to decorate it with these adorable pony stickers because no amount of responsibility will make me grow up.This trio is one of the main reasons that I love notebooks so much, because they can be so tiny and easy to slip into any bag. I like using these for writing down advice, and just random quotes and typography that I like.
I also really like that they aren’t lined, so that gives you the little bit more freedom for doodling and just jotting down anything you fancy.This notebook I picked up from TK Maxx, because I didn’t have a notebook with ring binding, and these are usually the easier to write in because you can just rotate all of the pages back, meaning you don’t ruin the spine by bending the notebook. I also love the cover of this one, because I feel like it inspires me to never hold myself back, and to just create.This is one of my older notebooks, I picked it up in a stationery store, primarily because it’s a full A4 sized notebook, but also it’s really satisfying to use. If you’re a notebook entusiast such as myself, you’ll understand why; it’s big, it has a super-soft faux-leather covering, and the pages are thick and lined, so it’s like a good old fashioned classic journal.And finally these 2, both of which I also picked up from TK Maxx, again they are both A5, but the lavender one has another super-soft cover that has “Stay Classy” printed onto it in silver text, and the other is a hard-backed notebook with “Stuff I’m Likely To Forget” (how perfectly apt for a notebook am I right?!) written in a gorgeous gold font.
That’s it for my little notebook haul, I hope you guys enjoyed it! Do you also love a good notebook? Let me know in the comments!
