Not only do I love notebooks – I also love pens… No point buying the perfect notebook and not writing with the perfect pen right? Not kidding – I will throw tantrums when someone hands me their chewed up old Bic. My favourite pen is by Pilot and its called the Permaball. It writes at 1 mm (thick!), it’s super inky but totally permanent when dry. They recently discontinued it for a recycled version, which […]
Cracking open a new Moleskine, when there are so many things to write is amazing. I love it. I change the one I buy each time. This time it’s a Moleskine reporter (flips open) in the soft cover version. I like this one – it gives the note book a casual edge, makes me feel like I can scribble anything down in it and the pages aren’t being wasted. This one is just for To […]
Sorry I’ve been quiet this weekend guys, but I am so busy and yes – tired! But…. 1. I would like to wish my American readers Happy Independence Day (it is called that right?). This cat would also like to wish you Happy Independence Day: I hope you are proud, cos I licked my first twinkie yesterday.
For no reason whatsoever, its a Sunday ramble post! I was left holding the baby recently, and I decided to dig out my SLR since it was a warm day and take some photos of my aunts 18 month old daughter. So I don’t know who was more disturbed, her or me. She had just woken up and was super grouchy, I had just gotten over her waking up and screaming when she realised I […]
Beep Beep – do excuse me for this non make up related post but I feel like this is a public health warning. I stumbled across this nice looking jar of coffee last week, called Nescafe Green Blend. The idea of this instant coffee is that its full of Antioxidants and is a mixture of green and roasted coffees. Healthy coffee? Sounds good to me. I am a coffee fiend, I love the stuff. First […]
Didn’t I say I have a notebook fetish? Mr Candy found stacks and stacks of half used notebooks and diaries, and he has totally banned me from buying any more…but I couldn’t resist Paperchase’s new collection Day Trippers when I was browsing in store yesteryday: I think Paperchase get it so, so right for stationery addicts like me. They release new collections every few months that they design, usually 2 or 3 at a time […]
I was actually shopping on Strapya World – an online Japanese bric-a-brac store which looks like its on acid – for some gems and sticky things to do a customisation tutorial… But I also ended up with these cool bits! Kikis Delivery Service mini stamp set, and a Hello Kitty Security Stamp. If you don’t know what Kiki’s Delivery Service is, its an animation written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki. The stamps…lots of Gigi (the […]
Hallo ladies! Last week I spent a few days in London for business and pleasure. Everytime I go, time flies by and I never actually get round to any sight seeing. This time for the sake of “adventure” me and Mr Candy took the Bus which was a 4.5 hour journey. Never again. I never used to be travel sick but now I totally am, and I tried to sleep through the shaky, bumpy journey […]
