special stationary shopping

Over the past few days, I've been doing quite a lot of shopping. A couple of the items have been sort of interesting: nail polish remover so I can finally re-do my nails in a new colour, DVDs to watch, my favourite smoothie. But there haven't been any stunning style purchases, of the sort that I might normally show off on this blog.

Mainly, I have been buying stationary.

Don't let anyone tell you that's not fun.

And I'm not even talking about the cute, colourful and horrendously over-priced stationary in kitsch little gift shops and Paperchase, which some people quite commonly fawn over. Actually, I never get why people fawn over polka-dotted notepads. I prefer my stationary to be sturdy, business-like, practical. A light-weight folder with clamps for added versatility (you don't need to hole-punch!) is more the sort of thing that gets me excited.

Come on, you have to admit it's a genius idea. If I weren't sorted for folders for life by now, I would have bought one of these in every colour.

And there's something so fun about organising everything just so. Organisation can be very pretty too.


  1. Nothing inspires me like new notebooks and pens. I feel like anything is possible when I have a new notebook and for that reason I have lots of new notebooks.xoxo

  2. I love buying stuff for school: notebooks, folders, markers, stickers, pens... I bought a Hello Kitty notebook yesterday :D

  3. I love stationery. And office supplies!

  4. Like enc I also love office supplies :)
