Ban.do Stationary Haul

Right, so for anyone that knows me, I’m a massive stationary freak. Paperchase is basically my second home. My nan once sent me out to buy myself some stuff for my birthday and I came back with a pencil pot and some pens. Cool right?

Except this Christmas I didn’t head to Paperchase, I discovered Ban.do. And I fell in LOVE. Their mix of products are girly AND useful and really, really pretty. What’s not to like?

I managed to pick up a LOAD of stuff, for use at work, to everyday use, to travel, it’s all fab.

12 Month Planner

Now I’ve always been a bit of a sucker for a diary. Partly so I don’t forget my dentist appointments and also because I like to be able to look back at stuff I’ve done. Now this one goes the whole way.

It’s full of super cool artwork designed by some serious lady boss artists and a load of stickers, which I wish there were more of. It has a month-by-month view as well as a weekly breakdown and LOADS of space for notes too. It actually makes making appointments fun, which is something I never thought would actually be possible, plus the pages are littered with a secret girl code to make you feel TOTALLY professional.

Complement Pencils

So I’d been looking for some pens and pencils to have on my desk at work and I knew I had to have these ones. You know when you just need a boost of confidence from your pencil? No? Well you can have it anyway! People at work TOTALLY question and judge me for having these pencils but I TOTALLY don’t care because they bring out my sassy confident side like “yeah pencil, you’re right, I am so smart, I can ace this report.” Plus some are shiny and I’m a magpie.

I Am Very Busy Ice Blue Notepad

Now I go through notepads SO quick, but this one is a LOT bigger to what I’m used to since it’s actually A4 instead of the usual A5 that I burn through like wildfire. So, while it’s more money than I’d usually pay, it’s definitely going to last me. I even has little pouches on the inside so I can shove random notes in as I go. I think the most simple, yet useful part for me is literally just the date section. I get so lost as I write things that it takes me forever to find it all again, so this will be an absolute LIFE SAVER.

Passport Case and Luggage Tag

Now these, I am so excited to use. Not only are they totally Instagram worthy, but will make travel so much easier for me. I’m terrible with my passport. We store them in a box with my parents’ and it makes it so much easier to find mine. Plus it’ll protect from spillages like the Orange Juice Incident of ’11. And it’s pink and rose gold and brings out my super fun girly side. And the luggage tag. It’s FLORAL. Plus it appeals to my blogger side. Not only does it have the standard return address section on it, but also space for your emailΒ and Twitter handle, so you’re really really contactable. So useful and super modern considering I am on Twitter a LOT. Since I’ve got a few getaways planned this year already, watch this space so see it in action.

I managed to find this stash in House of Frazer where you can find this and more here. Or, you can find their full website and more collections here. While they may be a bit pricey, to me the quality makes it totally worth it. And it’s JUST SO FUN.

    I definitely need a planner because I am such a mess. Really, so disorganized and confused with dates. The compliment pencils remind me of when I was in primary school. Such a great period! Nice stationery haul! xx Corinne from Corinne & Kirsty
