Schools are starting again! After such a nice, long holiday, it’s not always easy to get back to the routine of school. Especially the getting up early. I always try to find ways to get me a bit more excited or motivated for school. One of my favourite things, is to get some new stationery! Especially since I’m starting my final year in college, I thought it’d be nice to start it off with some nice new things.
The first shop I stopped by was a Dutch store. It’s called Hema. It actually has some pretty cute stuff, especially considering stationery. The theme is obvious, I went for white and gold. I got these adorable white and gold notebooks. They are pretty big, A5 format notebooks which I love. They last a lot longer than normal notebooks because they’re hardcover. And I adore the design!! The white and gold looks so nice, so fancy! I did also get some normal notebooks, just in case I needed more. I went for some basic, brown paper ones.
Next thing I got was this planner. It’s already sitting on my desk, and I just find it so useful. I don’t really use a diary anymore and just write eveything in my phone. This is a nice way to have a clear, nicely displayed overview just sitting on your desk. Without having to carry it with you. Plus it just looks freaking cute.
The next brand I got some stuff from was “Studio Stationery“, which is a Dutch brand as well. They have some really adorable stuff there and I love the looks of it. First thing I got there was a small pencil bag, with just a plain grid print, but I thought it looked so lovely! Next thing I got was a bit more unusual, but I thought it was such a nice idea. It’s a mini water planner. Basically, it displays how many glasses of water you should drink in a day and it lets you keep track of it. I don’t know how long I’m actually going to keep using it, but I’m definitely gonna give it a try.
Also, I got a basic to do list notebook since I’m obsessed with making lists. I make list of literally eveything so this is definitely gonna be put to good use. And the last thing I got was this password organizer book. I always lose my passwords for everything or get them mixed up. And then I end up having to change my password AGAIN. So hopefully, that’s not going to happen anymore now that I have this little book.
Also, they sent along two stickers saying “Sure I Like Fun” and “Fuck Perfect”, and a really cute thank you note. Which I thought was so nice and thoughtful!
Lastly I got some stationery basics from various stationery stores. I just got these black fineliners which are my favourite pens. Also some highlighters as I always lose mine. And finally I got some sticky notes. Some basic ones and a few cuter ones, in different sizes and shapes.
The thing about new stationery is, I cannot wait to start using it! Which is basically the only thing getting me excited for school again. But hey, it’s already September, so the countdown to Christmas is almost starting!
