There is no denying my love for stationery, it's probably my all time favourite thing to shop for as unlike beauty products notepads never go out of date. So I've sampled my fair share of brands and here are 5 of my current favourites.
PAPERGANG BY OHH DEER*: A stationery subscription box to me is pure genius and I love the Papergang from Ohh Deer. They always carry items from such awesome artists that you're always going to be discovering new talent. Their boxes are designed to themes and there is always a fresh concept each month. I think these kinds of subscription services make the perfect gift for someone who you know loves stationery. Or you could treat yourself, if you know you get through a lot of notepads and are in constant need of cards.
MUJI: This is a store that is well loved amongst beauty addicts for their clear acrylic storage but I personally think their stationery items are even better. Everything is incredibly cheap but the quality is awesome and I love the simple classic designs of their products. Not only are their notepads awesome in terms of paperweight and design. But their pens a particular favourite of mine too, the 0.7's are especially good.
U.STUDIO*: If you're a lover of unique gift, cards & other stationery items than U.Studio is an awesome store to shop from. Much like Ohh Deer they have a large array of artists work to choose from including one of my favourite illustrators Clare Owen. Whilst shopping from big chain stores like Paperchase & Muji is quick and easy it's always nice to be able to support small brands and artists as you always get something completely different than what can be found in most high street stores.
KIKKI.K*: Kikki.K are a brand from Sweden and even though my notepad tastes are normal of the floral variety I absolutely adore the aesthetic and themes. I used to be a big lover of Moleskine but I found their paperweight wasn't heavy enough and if you're a Sharpie lover it's a complete no-go. The paper used in the Kikki.K journals is incredibly weighty. Which makes it feel super luxe and it can withstand any pen you use and not go through to the other side. They have a huge variety of items available from journals from homeware so there really is something for everyone.
RIFLE PAPER CO: If you follow me on Instagram this will come as no shock that RPC just had to be included. Even though I'm sure that most people are aware of the brand it's just too dreamy not to mention. Their range is absolutely huge and even if you're not a fan of their beautiful watercolour florals there are so many designs to choose from. For us UK girls it's now a lot easier to get your hands on their products than it used to be. They can even be found in some bigger Paperchase & Waterstones stores which is a dream come true.
