I’m A Sucker For Stationery


Gorgeous modern desk space

Is it just me who spends hours on Pinterest looking at images of stationery and gorgeous desk spaces? Since I started working mostly from home, I’ve been creating a little space for myself to get creative, and that means lusting after post-it notes, pens, motivational prints for the wall, and anything that looks chic and will organise my chaotic life. I’m sure I’ll take some snaps of my work area soon (when it’s finally finished…) and share them here, but for now, I want to share my favourite new website for buying cute little things to brighten up your desk – or just your life.

Ban.do is an LA based company that I discovered thanks to uber blogger Oh Joy! And I pretty much want everything they stock. They ship internationally (hooray) and I’ve already ordered a phone case. Here are some of my favourite things on Ban.do – which are your favourites?

Gorgeous Ban.do buys!

Dress up your desk!

    Ah I love Ban.Do I have a pair of their little glittery shoe clips. I found out about them a few years ago when I met the lady who owns it at a course I was on. Those phone cases are amazing! xx

    No you’re not the only one! As I sit here at the kitchen table I’m craving one of those uber glam writing desks with storage above, chocked full of lovely stationery bits, just waiting to be used (not that I WOULD use them of course – far too pretty!). Ah me. Looks like a fab site… will run over and take a peek, thanks for sharing!
