Obsessions: My Need For Designer Stationery

Obsessions: My Need For Designer Stationery

I’ve spoken about my addiction to stationery before, I have a love for buying notepads, pens, pencils, cute erasers, and even colourful paper-clips, most of which I find too cute to even use, but lately I think I have been hitting new heights with my latest purchases that I just had to have, designer pieces of stationery.

First up, Kate Spade New York, literally the mecca for the cutest pieces that you didn’t even know you wanted, from bow-shaped push pins to micro-skinny pencils, and even a rotating phrase stamp to graffiti every piece of paper in sight, all of which are currently on my very long wish list. I added to my collection in New York these cool pens with phrases like ‘What’s the Word’ and ‘From the Desk of’, as well as these bookend notepads. The reason why, because they were so adorable I couldn’t possible leave them behind!!!

Doll Loving: Barbie x Sadie Williams For LFW

Doll Loving: Barbie x Sadie Williams For LFW

I always get a little giddy around this time of year, not because Valentine’s Day is coming up, but because London Fashion Week is only days away and I know that Barbie always teams up with an amazing fashion designer. Previously, my favourite doll has been dressed by Sibling, Nasir Mazhar, Fred Butler, Louise Gray, Roksanda Ilincic and she even got a Christmas makeover from Stephen Jones – well coming Friday this gang of tomboy princesses designed by Sadie Williams will go on sale at Selfridges.

It is hard to top Sibling and Fred Butler, I loved them so much I rushed out and snapped up two, but I love how Central Saint Martins’ graduate Sadie Williams has really brought her own vision to Barbie’s expanding wardrobe. The intricate detail mash-up of hand-collaged prints, which reference vintage sports clothing, graphic Amish quilts, and abstract shapes seen in the work of Frank Stella, really does make the perfect Barbie party look.

Christmas Windows: Selfridges’ Oversized Winter Wonderland

Christmas Windows: Selfridges’ Oversized Winter Wonderland

I am a bit of a Christmas nut, I love putting the Michael Buble album on repeat, eating copious amounts of mince pies, wrapping up warm with a hot chocolate watching festive movies, and each year I love checking out the Christmas decorations and window displays. If you follow me on Instagram you will have already seen a giant snowglobe in the middle of Piccadilly, a huge reindeer in Covent Garden, as well as sparkly displays in Leeds, and a rocking robin on Carnaby Street. Well yesterday, in between meetings and events, I decided to wander past Selfridges on Oxford Street to see their fashionable take on the festive season, which is all a bit like ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ with its oversized gifts and tiny people and animals.
