Sixth Form Stationary Haul

Hey guys! I started Sixth Form last week, so beforehand I went for a good old stationary shop! Buying new stationary is so therapeutic for me, buying things like pens and folders and pencil cases is just really satisfying. Like they're only basic things really aren't they? But I very much enjoy buying them. I feel like I can justify buying stationary more than I can other things. So should I talk through what I got?


For the last three years of High Schoo,l I didn't have a pencil case, and that was because we had to wear blazers, which in total, had eight pockets. Yes, EIGHT. So I carried around most of my belongings in my blazer; my phone, keys, pens, pencils, calculators, lunch, THE LOT. But I don't have a blazer with eight pockets now I'm in Sixth Form. In fact, the blazer I bought has no pockets at all. So when looking for a pencil case I wanted it to be smart and sophisticated, but it was hard to find one I liked. But when I was buying my clothes for Sixth Form in H&M, I spotted the gem above while I was queueing. I don't know whether it's a make-up bag, or purse, or a pencil case (I couldn't find it on the website) but it does the job and makes me feel tres profesh. I also bought a pack of Staedtler biro's because I swear they are the only things I can write decently with.


I also bought a pack of 8 colourful Staedtler biro's (6 in the picture but I bought 8, trust me) because I like writing out my notes in pretty colours as well as to fill in my bullet journal. I've been using these to death every single day. Pretty colours make my heart flutter. *swoon*


Now, I've been considering starting a bullet journal for the longest time, and I've spoken briefly about it in some of my previous posts. Before I went in head first, I did a lot of research, I read blogs, watched youtube videos, scrolled Tumblr and scoured Pinterest.It seemed that the majority of people were using a Leuchtturm 1917. So I bought one too! I'm super happy about it and am loving decorating it and being on top of things more. I'm fully happy and satisfied with this purchase. Would recommend.






And lastly, I bought myself paper (exciting!!) and folders. Carrying folders make me feel like such a business woman. Something about holding them around the school makes me feel great; I don't even know why but I'm not even going to complain. I bought the pink and green one from WHSmith and the gold spotted folder from paperchase. It was only £3.something! Bargain I say.

Anyway, that's all. If you know of any places to buy cheap stationary please tell me in the comments because I'm craving more! What's one bit of stationary which you can't live without?
Much love,
Lauren xx

  3. There is something so exciting about buying stationary! I’ve also been looking into bullet journaling but haven’t properly dedicated myself to it yet. I hope you will share some of your journal with us. I personally cannot live without an academic diary it’s the only thing that keeps my life in order to be honest aha. I have to say that looking online, like amazon also have some really cute stationary stuff but your best on the high-street in WHSmith.
    Good luck with this school year!

  7. I love stationery shopping before school! At my school we have blazers I keep almost all my belongings in too, aha! I couldn't live without my coloured Stabilo fineliners! I use them everyday and I use a different colour for each lesson to organise my planner and it makes me look organised, when I'm really not! x
