Cute Paperchase Haul!

Hello my lovelies! So, that time of year has managed to roll around again, with Freshers students flocking the streets and people derivatively rhyming off Green Day lyrics, I couldn't be happier to bid farewell to summer and welcome Autumn with open arms! This September marks my third (and final, eek!) year at university, where I'll not only be preparing my final projects but will also be jetting off to Switzerland for an exciting design collaboration in Zurich. With this academic year already proving pretty hectic, I wanted to kick-start my motivation with an obligatory stationery order, from Paperchase no less!

I could easily spend an eternity trawling through Paperchase, eyes completely captivated by quirky gifts and colourful stationery. As soon as I enter a store, I always find myself gravitating towards the twirling stall that showcases all the stickers, and that's it - I'm lost in time, spinning it endlessly and collecting the cutest I can find. Each year I purchase a selection of stickers to smother my uni notebooks with just to make them that little bit more me!

In keeping with the cat theme I apparently have goin' on, I also snapped up this adorable lined notebook for jotting down ideas, inspirations and everything in between. Decorated with various breeds of cats, I love how colourful the cover is and I actually can't stop awwing at the little kitties in their little outfits! Presented in hardback, this notebook will be perfect at withstanding any bumps and bangs it may retain in my university schoolbag.

Probably my favourite purchase of the lot, this fairy princess writing set is too cute for words! Shaped like a miniature wardrobe and garnished with glitter, it opens up to produce an assortment of beautiful letters, envelopes and even stickers, my eyes practically glistening with excitement at the thought of all the happy mail I'll be sending! Adorned with princesses, unicorns, rainbows and castles, Paperchase have really outdone themselves with this magical set.

No stationery haul would be complete without a brand-spanking new set of pencils! Like a moth to a flame, I was of course drawn to the pencil tin covered in cupcakes, and with 36 dazzling colours to choose from, I can imagine that my new cat notebook will soon be resembling a rainbow. As I take four modules per semester, I like to colour coordinate my notes, making them more fun to interact with and get the creative juices going. Probably one of my cuter hauls from Paperchase, I'm excited to get stuck into my studies and get colourful!

  1. That cat notebook is so sweet! I adore it. Might have to pick that up for myself.

  2. Oh my goodness, the princess writing set is just amazing. I write to many penpals so am always on the lookout for cute letter writing sets, although I try hard to avoid Paperchase too often as my bank balance doesn't thank me.
