Hello Internet! So… Happy Eid to everyone that celebrated! Everyone in my family knows my stationery addiction so guess what I got for Eid? So does this count as a stationery haul? I don’t know but I wanted to share what I got with you guys! Also pleeease don’t be disappointed because I’ve seen bloggers who say ‘Mini Stationary Haul!’ and then buy the whole of (insert your favourite stationary shop e.g Paperchase!). When I say mini, I mean I’ve only got about 5 things! Any-hoo let’s get started- and enjoy lovelies!
You know those adult colouring books? I’m obsessed! They’re so cute and fun and I just love them! Last year I got Johanna Basford’s Lost Ocean colouring book which you can order here and I 100% reccomend it! The designs weren’t too detailed but it wasn’t block colouring. The designs were ah-maze-ing! So, okay, I haven’t actually gotten it yet but I really want to get Johanna Basford’s Enchanted Forest colouring book (order here). Plus, I’ve convinced myself I deserve it and am planning to get it soon! So they get the QF (Quirky Fangirl) mark of approval!
My mum gifted me a great set of Djeco Brush Tip Felt Pens, which are double-sided. One side, is a brush tip which is good for calligraphy (which, I am terrible at, by the way) and the other side is a thin felt tip! I use it for poster work and they work really well- I’m obsessed! So QF approval mark 2!
I also got NPW 50/50 Pencils! At first, I wasn’t too sure. When it comes to art, I’ll be blunt, I am not very good at it. Especially, when it comes to colouring pencils. My go-to is my felt tips. I already have a Staedtler 20 Pack of Triplus Felt Tips (order here) which I swear by- I can’t tell you how damn good they are. Anyway, I can’t really mess up with felt-tips, no shading, no fancy art skills = no stress, right? Yet the pencils are really good, the colour comes out nicely and I CAN KIND OF ACTUALLY DRAW WITH THEM. I really like them, I even made a stab at trying to shade and layer and even left the little white spot for the shine y’all. See? I totally know how to do art! Anyway moving on from my brilliant artistic skills (or lack thereof). So QF approval!
I also got something which I WISH I had gotten a few weeks ago! Would’ve made my gift wrapping a WHOLE LOT EASIER. Anyway if you haven’t guessed I’m talking about scrapbook paper! I got 2 design pads which I’m super happy about! The first is this adorable Vintage Notes which has a theme of floral, purple and grey designs which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. I also got another one which is an Urban Style one, which I also love. Its really hipster. The card is quite thick, its a good size with 32 sheets (4×8 designs). This one deserves a big tick of QF approval!
So last but certainly not least I FINALLY GOT ‘How To Be A Bawse’ by Lilly Singh. THE Lilly Singh aka IISUPERWOMANII! If you guys want, I can do a book review when I’ve finished reading it, but I’ve planned to take it with me on holiday- so that might be a while. I couldn’t resist and read a bit and from what I’ve read so far IT’S AWESOME SAUCE! I can’t wait to finish it!
So that is all from me! I hope you like this mini stationery haul and if you did don’t forget to like, comment and follow my blog! Love you guys! Virtual hugs!
