Notebook Obsession.

pretty-notebooks
I love notebooks. I have about 8 sitting on the shelves of my bedside table, only a few words written in each until it’s been pushed aside by a new, prettier edition. I have some kind of compulsive disorder where I can’t walk by a Paperchase/WH Smith/Even Poundland without popping in to look at the notebooks. The thing is, I rarely use a notebook nowadays, I have my iPad which I make all my to-do lists on for le blog and I use my diary at work but I just can’t resist. I’ve always been one of those people that loves ‘back to school’ time and buying new stationery, even now when I don’t technically need any (I do actually being a Teaching Assistant – score!). I think I was the only person on my degree course that had a pencil case and pretty notebook to take down lecture notes in – at least I was nice and organised in style!
Do you love notebooks and stationery?

  1. I have to stop myself being them as I never have anything to write in them! I do have the Emma Bridgewater one though :)

  3. I'm pretty sure I have this same addiction! I have so many stored away, just because I like the look of them!
    Nice to know I'm not the only one!

  4. I love note book. I'm like a crack addict in paper chase. I have a tip off for cool note pads. Try Oxfam, I got the coolest note pad made out of old christmas cards from there! xx

  5. I share your notebook obsession! I can never fill them though, I just like looking at them. I feel as though my musings or attempts at writing aren't good enough for beautiful notebooks (!).

  6. Gorgeous notebooks. I love that 'lovers I had and liked' one hahaha!
    I am exactly the same with notebooks, I buy them all of the time, even though I really don't need them. I'm currently using a gorgeous blue one that I won on a blog giveaway, but I also have a russian doll one from Paperchase which I adore!

  9. I'm a huge stationery fan. I have so many notebooks I'm going to have to make myself a whole shelf for them soon. The thing I'm most excited for when I go back to college in September is new stationery! I've decided I want matching pencil case, notebook and folder...and maybe a pen. And a paper wallet thing. And another notebook. :D
    I went into Wilkinson today to get some boring cleaning products and they had some really, really cute stationery which I was quite surprised at! Definitely worth a look.
    My favourite notebook at the minute is a Sailor Jerry tattoo style one! xxx

  15. I am a major stationary addict, I also work with a pen theif and only live near a WH smith so I'm a constantly skint stationary addict! I'm eyeing up my 2012/13 diaries already...and my notebooks for next year at uni. Oh well they're useful! xoxo

  16. I have SO many notebooks! I don't have many with the picture covers. I tend to be drawn to the suede/leather/parchment antiquey looking ones. Fortunately, they get used since I write and doodle like a fiend.
