Stationary haul + my desk organisation


It's that time of year again, the time almost every one dreads because we all know we have to go back to classes full of people we hate, homework, algebra, getting up at six o'clock, being denied a simple toilet break, detentions, boring lectures,  too much drama, the list could go on! But there is always a light in this terrible, dark time. This light, is the stationary isle. It's not only packed, but on sale and of course, being the teenage girl that I am, it is a light that I am always very much drawn too.
My desk

I found this cute notebook in Paperchase for £3, I'm not entirely sure what i plan to do with it yet, but I'm considering: dream journal/notebook for school.  I've found loads of notebooks like this over youtube at the moment, they are spine-less and sort of floppy like a booklet, often quite small and easy to fit into handbags and look cute on desks!

These cute clips are from Wilkinsons! I think for £1 per box? I have, until now, been using my mum's washing line pegs to pin photos on my photoline, so she has been running short, therefore, when i saw these i just HAD to buy them!!!  There are two sizes in the box, which is kind of good for me because i plan to make a littler photoline for my things on my bucket list and photos of me doing the things!

My previous pencil case was a tin, and after an unfortunate event where i left it on the floor in food tech and one of my teachers not only stepped on it but slipped over, i decided to buy a new one.  I am really picky with my pencil cases because a pencil case is like a school bag, it has to fit with your personality, your style and it has to be the right size, right colour etc. So finding the perfect one is a difficult task.  At first I was going to pick a silk-like black one from Topshop, but I then went into WHSmiths and found this gorgeous thing!  It is just perfect, anyone who knows me will agree that I am the happiest person on this planet, so this pencil case was obviously the one!

I found this giant peg in a store called Tiger, which is a store that I fell in love with as soon as I walked in the door! It does stationary and homeware stuff and all it's very cute and often a bit bizarre and out of the ordinary. I love it so so much as it really fits in with my style.  I didn't really know why i bought this peg at the time, I just saw it and thought "It's pink! It's huge! I want it!" which pretty much sums up what I''m like while splurging!   When I got it home  just put it on my desk and hoped a use for it would occur. Yesterday, i went into the city and bought this cute postcard from paper chase (70p) that says "dream it, believe it, achieve it", which is now one of my favourite quotes. I like the idea that something you want can start out as a dream or fantasy, but the more you think about it the more you believe it can really happen and then you go out and you can live your dream, any dream can be a reality. I also took this cute strip in a photobooth with my boyfriend. When I got home, I realised I had nowhere to put them before having the idea to put them in here! It ended up ooking super cute and I'm really glad I bought it!
Scissors, Stapler, Hole-punch - Tiger
These three are not actually a set but they're all pink and all from tiger so I thought I'd shoot them together!  The best bit about Tiger is not the quirkyness and the amazingness of the items but how cheap they are! I was so pleased  when I came to the checkout and everything that I had bought came under  £20!  I got a new desk very recently and before I had to share with my Dad, and so getting a new desk was a big step for me because i now have my own space for my own stuff and I can actually have my own stuff! For example, i now have a pair of pink scissors, a pink stapler and a pink hole-punch, which i didn't have before!  I love it so much!

This cute little book is from Wilkinsons, on the front in says "things to see, things to buy" which kinda sums me up.  It is simply a little list book where I write shopping lists, to do lists, song ideas etc.  I was looking for a little book like this for ages and so I was really pleased when I found one!

Notebooks - Wilkinsons
These two notebooks are also from wilko.  They are the same style as the notebook from paperchase but a little smaller, and cheaper.  These were 75p each and they are so cute! I like the way the colours go together, I especially love the pattern of the one with the flowers, I think that' my favourite! Again, they are just spineless notebooks with simple lined paper inside.
Omg I found this adorable tape holder in Tiger (again)! I love it so darn much! It's a hedgehog! It's amazing!  I just had to buy it!  It's so cute!  Theres a little razer on my hedgehogs bum where you rip the sellotape off and you keep the tape in the middle.  I think this was about £4, which is really cheap, considering if you got this from paper chase it would cos you £10 at least!

Finally, I found this sharpener in, once again, Tiger! I just love it! All around the glass jar, there are little houses in cute baby-colours, it also has a cute little lid, which, for some unknown reason, reminds me of little red riding hood and her cloak!

I really hope you like my stationayr haul, comment below, follow me etcetera!

Thankyou so so much for reading!
