I love stationery. Stationery is love, Stationery is life.
Let’s be honest, how many bloggers reading this don’t love stationery? It’s cute, it’s affordable (usually), and it keeps you organised. I have a really boring blog organisation system but it works so I’m scared to change it up. However, being a student, I can get away with still buying stationery and just say that it’s for university (it isn’t, it’s to look at and hold when I’m sad).
Since school and college and university are all starting soon, there are so many deals on stationery, and so many gorgeous bits and pieces out there that I have been lusting over, so I thought I’d share with you what I’ve been wanting to pick up. My favourite places to pop in for stationery at the moment are Paperchase and Urban Outfitters, but you can pick up some lovely bits from other places (as you’ll see in this post).
Tomorrow afternoon, I’m jetting off to America for 20 days of sightseeing. We’re visiting so many places in such a short space of time and I’ve got no idea how we’re going to do it, but my dad thinks it’s possible so we’re giving it a go. Although I’ve packed my case with all my general bits and pieces, I do have essentials for being on board a plane, but I’ve added a few extras to my normal routine since this is my first long haul flight in 13 years. Sorry that this may be a ‘boring’ post, but writing this has reminded me of things to pack so it’s been helpful to me. And hopefully it’ll be helpful to you too.
There are a variety of things I like to take when I travel: beauty products, entertainment and, of course, travel documents. Here is a run down of what I think are essentials when I’m travelling by plane. But if you’re more interested in the things I take whilst travelling my train, check out this post here from earlier in the month.
I wanted to write a post on achieving goals, but didn’t have any inspiration for it. That was until I popped into Next a couple of weekends ago and saw this glass plaque. At first, it reminded me of Louise, but as I continued to follow my mum around the store, I got the inspiration for this post. Unfortunately, I can’t find a link to the plaque online but if you have a Next with a reasonably-sized homeware section, you might be able to pick it up.
Sparkle can be thought of as belief, and therefore help. I think to be able to achieve goals, you need to have to believe in yourself, but also have assistance. Whether that is friends and family, or help from blogs and websites. I rely on my boyfriend a lot to help me achieve what I want to achieve; he’s my absolute rock.
I thought I’d post something a little different today, and that is a list of my favourite youtubers. Compiling this list was somewhat of a struggle as there are so many people that I enjoy watching. I wholeheartedly recommend every single person on this list, and if I have missed somebody out, I apologise.
