OMFG Stationary | Hello I'm Clo


 

Please first and foremost forgive me for my tardiness. 
This week has been mental a real OMFG. Totally crazy. Between college, nights out, brithdays, nights in with family friends and work. It's been one of those weeks where you feel you haven't slept. In fact. I haven't.

I may take the next week to recover. 


After Friday nights antics. Lack of sleep and serious dehydration, if a little hungover (L was totally out of it) A group of us decided to hit a local fry up as we were in some serious caffeine and an overhaul of what went down as evidently a lot did. It was, after all, my eighteenth.

After our fry up, which I must stress is by no means a cure of a hangover and only aggravates the original issue! Trust me!! We all parted ways to get on with the day ahead. 

L and I had already planned to go into Worcester City Centre to do a spot of shopping. (Like I need to do more shopping!!) 
It was whilst being dragged unwillingly into Waterstones that I discovered something that stood out proud on the shelves. 

I've been looking for sometime now for the perfect Notebook. 

Perfect notebook Clo? REALLY!?

Somewhere to pop down all my creative ideas, opinions on products, notes, inspiration and any other general stuff that I need to later refer to.
Although Pinterest, Iphone Apps and other handy little life extras are a fully valid point. I'm a kinesthetic learner and love to be able to touch and feel things. Have everything In one place.

A notebook is the perfect place for me to keep notes (Obviously!) and also has the option of adding in receipts, leaflets and other bits and bobs, such as colour swatches or a dab of the latest Colour Crush lipstick from bodyshop. Purely an example.

 I. do. not. need another one!!


anyway... Back to it girl...

The OMFG notebook captured my heart. No doubt about it. It's fun and funky and the perfect size for popping into my handbag. Whilst containing all the relevant hair, beauty, make-up bits and bobs that are totally necessary to my life as a blogger extraordinaire (I jest.)



It's made of recycled paper and is a decent thickness front and back. The paper is flimsy yet thick quality wise so if you write in ink it won't run through.
There is a neat white invisible line border around the central focused lines, on which you write. The lines are thin and a translucent brown colour.


It's got that old school, recycle feel which reminds me of gifts and quaint little back street london indie stores.
At £4.99 It's classed as 'Mid Range' priced stationary as it is branded. The brand is Knock Knock at www.knockknockstuff.com They're an american brand, who sell and create lots of cool kitsch and quirky stationary stuff that's made to make you smile!

There are also a couple more designs available on notebooks as well as slogans on these brown recycled books. 

You can also collect points on your Waterstones card with this purchase.


Don't forget to use all discounts, vouchers and points available to you!
 

So my fellow stationary lovers!
Check out the displays and products available in waterstones, as it's no longer just a place for books. They have lots more on offer than you realise especially as kindles and ipads become more accessible to everyone.

Ironically L couldn't find the book she was looking for in waterstones.

We often overlook what's on our doorstep in search of something, somewhere shiny and brand new. But fact is old habits die hard. Shops alter and change in order to stay 'In with the kids' 'In with the Jones' and Waterstones have done just that. The addition of giftwear and stationary is a perfect compliment to the forever standing, forever faithful books that capture and shape our hearts.

That's all for today folks!

Chin up, head strong.

Lots of love!
