Wouldn’t You Though?
It’s no secret that I have a bit of a stationery fetish… A newly sharpened pencil and a blank page gets my pulse racing every time, and don’t even start me on what a sleek and stylish notebook cover can do. And the smell… and… and…
These 2017 diaries from Julie Slater and Sons tick all my stationery boxes. The colours are gorgeous — just so vibrant. The paper is satisfyingly weighty. And — oh my days — they have a properly chunky pencil tucked in along the side so you’re never scrambling around trying to find something to write with.
Ok, ok, I know it’s just a diary. And you probably use the calendar on your phone, right? Well, stop! I’m a big fan of a pencil-and-paper planner — and with these beauties, surely it’s easy to see why.
There are a couple of choices about size and format — whether you want large, medium or small (I like the medium, myself), and if it’s all about a week-to-view (for the big picture) or a day-to-a-page (if you’re really busy) — with prices ranging from a very affordable £9.95 to £16.50. For a whole year of loveliness. Bargain.
Right now, my only decision is which size. Oh, and which colour… I’m liking the red right now — which colour would you choose?
