Sunday's Stationery Bargains

Currently listening to: Only Girl in the World by Rihanna

Good morning girls!

What are you up to today? I'm heading out to have lunch with a friend and a little jaunt in town but before I go, I thought I'd show you the bargains I picked up yesterday.

I absolutely love stationery although I don't have much need for it these days unfortunately. Still, it's hard for me to resist a bargain. I bought these two notebooks in Tesco for £1.50 (A4) and £1 (A5).

The covers are really smooth and the paper inside is lined with a cherry motif in the bottom corner. Aw.

I also picked up an A6 notebook for £1 and four Uniball Fusion pens. These are from Ryman (formerly known as Stationery Box) and were on a 2 for 1 offer so I bought 4 for £1.98. I've had this brand of pens before and I love them; they're nice writers plus the design is pretty :-)

So what am I going to use my new stationery for? Language learning and accounting notes!

Do you like a good stationery bargain?

Bye for now,


  1. :) cute notebook:) and pens:)...I love this unibal design:)

  2. The notebooks are very cute! What language are you learning? x

  3. I've got the strawberry one! Love it, then I went home, tidied my room and found about 8 other notebooks I've bought over the years, hehe.

  4. @Pink_Diamond, the pens are so pretty, I only wish more colours were available in the range so I could have a rainbow collection :-)

    @Leesha, I'm going to attempt to learn Spanish, for about the 5th time in 7yrs, and Business French. A healhty mind makes a healthy body!

    @Wing, LOL. Do you remember the pink notebook you gave me years ago with three flowers covered by plastic cubes on the front? I still have that because it's so pretty I'm waiting until I have something worthwhile to use it for :-)

  5. Oh! I have a stationery fetish! I love lingering in the aisle for ages. Thats not wrong is it? Could have worse habits! I am trying to find some nice deorative writing paper, its scarce... Cute bits u picked up :)

  6. I vaguely remember the notebook, maybe seeing it will jog my memory.
    You are too kind Laura! Shall look out for mail, thank you!

  7. I don't think of much about the primer unfortunately. It doesn't allow me to apply foundation any smoother like I expected, rather I need to be careful or it all looks clumpy. Lately my skin has broken out and is patchy dry in areas so I haven't given the primer any more goes. Not sure what to try next. I want to try the L'oreal studio one but don't want to dip fingers into a jar.

  8. @Sophie, glad I'm not the only one ;-) Nice writing paper is ridiculously difficult to find in the UK! I tend to stock up whenever I'm on holiday abroad but that's not exactly ideal.

    @Wing, ha not at all. I'll take a photo of the notebook. The jar puts me off L'Oreal too, plius the fact it only contains about 15ml as opposed to no7's 40ml. Even the no7 tube looks small.

  9. I do!:D
