Stationery Haul

Monday, September 04, 2017


Today I am starting college which is really exciting, so I thought I would show you all the stationery I have bought for the upcoming year - quite a bit because I'm pretty obsessed with stationery!

The first things I got were actually from Primark, somewhere I had no idea they did stationery until I was walking through my local one and spotted these two gorgeous notebooks for £2.50 each. One of them is a marble print with a copper ring-bound which I just feel, if I was designing a notebook, it would look exactly like that! The other is a black soft bound cover which says in copper 'More Issues Than Vogue' which I also loved because I feel like at one point or another I will literally end up with more issues than vogue at college.


For pens, I purchased my favourite fineliners, the Stabilo fineliners. I've had a lot of different sized sets of these over the years but this time I got a set of 20 from Wilko for £8 which is really good value. I also got a set of 5 neon Stabilo fineliners from Amazon because I really wanted to try the neon set and they were really affordable at £1.80 for the five of them.


I also got a ten set f the BIC Crystal biro pens. I used these so much during my GCSEs and so I thought it would be useful to get some more, especially as they are really affordable. I also ordered some Zebra mildliner pens off Amazon but they haven't come yet, unfortunately! I have wanted them for a really long time now so I'm excited for them to arrive.


My favourite thing in possibly the whole haul is my new planner I got from the brand Ban.do which they sell in a bunch of department stores. It's seriously the prettiest item of stationery I own and even though it is quite expensive for what it is (£20) I know it's going to be worth it because I'll definitely get the use out of it.


I also got some lever arch files, I know these are a bit big for some bags but I do manage to fit them in mine and during Year 11 my regular binders broke straight away and I imagine I'll have even more work in them at college! I got these spotty ones from The Range, I got two because my third one I got from Wilko a while back. I really wanted to get 'pretty' files not just the bright coloured ones and these I really like.


I also felt like I'd be needing some paper for the upcoming year so I got a refill pad while I was at The Range to use in my files and a Pukka Pad from Tesco because I had one of these for GCSEs last year and I found it so useful.

    1. Same! That's such a shame, they can be expensive here but in some shops like Wilko they are actually so affordable! I seem to buy a new set every couple of years so I felt like college was the perfect oppotuntity for some more! x

  6. Your planner is so cute! I love Ban.do's things as well although they can get pricey sometimes. I never knew Primark did such cute notebooks. Looks like I have to add them to my collection x Nikita
