NEW TO MY WARDROBE

The Home Haul: Stationery Nerd

A few days back, after a long hard slog at work, my mum greeted me with a mid-week treat. What a BABE. Practical but still appealing to the stationery snob and organisational cretin that lives inside me (I paint a wonderful image of myself don't I?), the Martha Stewart collection was on buy one get one free in Staples, so naturally some purchases had to be made. Form an orderly que ladies...

The first purchase naturally had to be the large Mint notebook I'd seen grace many an Instagram and post over at VDM, I love the fact that it's much wider than your usual notebook as I find my child-like scrawl tends to be a lot neater. It's not travel friendly, but that's what my wide set paper back moleskin is perfect for. The second had to be the gorgeous stone while document holder - all my essentials used to be in a filmsy old plastic folder, but now I can happily leave this out without wincing once we move in to our new place. It's also split into TEN sections, which helps to keep things super organised.

The final two are much smaller, a stone white pen holder - which at first was set to hold makeup brushes, but I have since found a large amount of pens rolling around in my bag (we counted five last week at the Company beauty awards), so it's purpose in life has changed somewhat. I also picked up a cute little box which now stores smaller items like screen cleaners and a small music box from the boy that plays viva la en rose - don't ask.

What's next in the home haulage? I may have taken things a step further over the weekend and picked up a beautiful new bed spread and cushions for the sofa we don't have yet - well done Suz...
