As most people are going back to school/uni soon I thought I’d do a little haul of the things I’ll be using in September. I’m a stationery-addict therefore I’m always on the lookout for cute pencils or notebooks that, let’s be honest, I don’t actually need! I love it when the holidays come round because I like to use it as an excuse to buy a load of stationary. There is a problem with the links so they don’t appear blue but they are still there! If anyone knows how to fix it please comment down below. Here are some of my favourites:
I always like to have a makeup bag filled with essentials. I got this Zoella Beauty one and it’s the perfect size to carry all my things. Inside I like to keep a brush, bobbles and some hair pins for if I want a quick touch-up. I also like to collect mini perfume samples to freshen up. I always have some lip-balm for when my lips get dry. My favourite is the eos lip-balm because they smell AMAZING and they are the perfect shape for applying. I keep my locker keys and tram pass there so I don’t have to rummage around my bag to find them. Finally, I like to have some breath spray or mints to use after I’ve eaten or just to freshen up. I’ve linked some of the products below:

I use this backpack to carry all my items in. Even though it’s quite pricey(£100), it is definitely worth the money. I’ve had so many backpacks where the straps just break after using it so much but this one doesn’t. I’ve used it daily for the past 3 months and there has been no wear and tear whatsoever – it’s very good quality. I also LOVE the colour! It’s a gorgeous baby pink colour. Unfortunately it’s not available any more but here are some other Ted Baker Backpacks.
I tend to have two pencil cases: I have a small one for my everyday items and a larger one for highlighters etc. For my smaller one I use this Ted Baker pencil-case. It’s perfect for holding your staple stationary and it also matches my bag. I keep my LAMY fountain pen in here. I LOVE this fountain pen because it’s so easy to write with and doesn’t leak ink every 5 minutes. I also keep a pritt stick, scissors, pencils and a white board pen in there.
I picked up this bigger pencil-case from Wilko. I get quite a lot of stationary from Wilko: they have some really cute stationary at an affordable price. I bought some pastel highlighters that rub out – they sound amazing don’t they! I always like to have some sharpies in there, I’m always finding some reason to use them. I have Tipp-ex, a protractor and some felt tips in it. Finally, I have a novelty rubber, sharpener thingy from WHSmith – I couldn’t resist!

Finally, here are some notebooks that I have picked up. I like to have plenty of different sizes on notebooks to work on different things. I find that I normally find the best notebooks in the stationary section of Supermarkets. For example, I picked up the small pink notebook from Lidl for 99p and I love it! I also like to have a folder to put random bits of paper or work in. The one that I use is from Wilko and it’s perfect! Unfortunately, Wilko stopped their collection the notebooks are from but here are some of their other stationary.
If you have made it to the end then sorry about the length of this blog post – I bought a lot of stationary! If you have purchased any cute stationary recently then feel free to comment below. Thank you so much for reading!
