Obsession: Cute Notebooks

I'm a sucker for good marketing. But not in the sense where I watch a commerical of a Revlon lipstick and instantly have the urge to buy it. Not today sumbliminal messaging, not today. Instead, I have the very peculiar gravitational pull to purchase when it comes to stationary. I can make no sense of it whatsoever, thus I feel like it falls under the 'obession' category.

I have stacks upon stacks of notebooks, agendas and dayplanners, journals, and even fancy sticky-notes. Because one cannot have too many sticky-notes. The kicker is... I don't write in journals or keep a diary {hello, blog}, and I don't keep notes in an agenda {hello, iPhone}. I don't even write grocery lists. So that's where my obsession becomes 'weird'. Is stationary-hoarding a thing? If I was an avid scrapebooker I may have been able to get away with it..

So today I feel like embracing my inner weirdo and whip up a post that showcases the cute stationary items I'm currently lusting over. Let's jump right in.


Favourite Etsy Finds:


1) Recycled Geometric Notebook $8.59 CAD


 
 
 
3) Artsy Notebooks set of 3  $13.74 CAD



4) Floppy Disk Notebook {!!!} $6.30 CAD



5) Feather Personalized Notebook. $17.18 CAD


Chapters Roundup:

1) Anything and everything Kate Spade. $12.00 - $14.00  CAD



2) Decomposition Notebook. $8.00 CAD
Who doesn't want a Sloth smiling at them every day?!

 

 

I cannot confirm nor deny my potential purchasing of all above products :)



If anyone shares this obsession with me, don't be a stranger. Let's be weird together.


Stay classy,

  1. I love, love, love stationary. I do keep notes in a notebook, that's usually what I use when I'm working on a blog or other idea but need some space to write and cross things out. Although, I hate starting a new notebook because it's too pretty to ruin, that's pretty irrational. I also bought my agenda on etsy this year, I wrote a whole blog post about it. So I hear you and completely understand.

  2. I love stationary and notebooks are my favourite thing to collect. I buy small notebooks for diaries and use A4 books for school. I'm very strict with myself about only buying notebooks to use them or if I don't I have to give them to someone else.

    1. Good on ya! Over the years I've just totally let myself go. I tried to be strict in the beginning but now I'm just full on cray!

  3. I love notebooks! I have far too many though, because firstly I buy them, and then people see that I like them so they buy me notebooks as well! I have to find a way of filling them up now!

  4. I too have a thing for cute journals and notebooks. My problem is that I DO write in them, and misplace them, and it seems my thoughts are all hanging out randomly... but at least they look cute!
