Notebooks by Quotebook

18 Jul 2015

On Friday night I found myself standing in Sainsbury's local, cat food in hand, getting excited about a packet of multicoloured biros - thus encapturing the extent of my love affair with good stationery. And, therefore, my love for these notebooks.

Aptly named 'the Parisian collection,' the three notebooks pictured are the product of Etsy shop, Quotebook. They're simple enough to be suitable for every day use, with cardboard covers and lined paper, and just fancy enough to be held in higher regard than your bog standard reporter's notepad. Starting from just £4.50, and with pastel colour tones and life affirming quotes - such as 'champagne and strawberries for breakfast' and 'when life gives you lemons, grab salt and tequila' - these books have fast become my favourite place to jot down to do lists, blog post ideas, and things to remember.

I recommend.

Where to buy: Quotebook Stationery, Etsy.
What to buy: The Parisian Collection. When life gives you lemons. Blog post ideas for internet fame.

*Notebooks gifted, opinions my own.

This heatwave is killing me. For the second time this week I'm eating ice cream as a part of my first meal of the day (yes, my first meal has taken place late afternoon, we had another house party) and my brain has slowed right down. Sunburnt shoulders and freckled noses have also taken place, but hey, what you gonna do? I'm still managing to grit my teeth and power through multiple cups of tea per day, and that's the important thing to remember here. British gonna Brit...

5 random things
♥ The image above was taken en route to Thorpe Park, and sums up the friendship between Sam, Thom & I pretty perfectly. We were on a train to wherever Thorpe Park is, and got so caught up in a ridiculous YouTube series (the Shopkins one, please watch if you haven't, it's so totally awesome guyyyyys) that we ended up missing our stop, and getting off in the people-free station that is Sunnymeads. The place was deserted - a fact we took advantage of with a race up and down the platform, and a selfie to commemorate the almost disaster that Shopkins caused. It was awesome. Thorpe Park itself was good too, when we finally got there... Going backwards on the Swarm rollercoaster was the BEST. THING. EVER!
♥ Last week, Thom, Steph & I went on a big gay day out to London Pride. We wore matching t-shirts, we marvelled at the pink poodles and the beautiful drag queens and all that was inbetween, and we danced our way from Baker Street to Trafalgar Square, before eating 99's, and collapsing in Hyde Park in exhaustion to listen to Tay and Ellie and Lauren Aquilina. It was fab.
♥ I met a guy in a bar last week. An actual man. In an actual bar. Without the help of Tinder. He approached me as I was making 'come and stop me bitch' eye contact with someone in his group - I was taking bottles of beer from their pre-bought alcohol bucket and putting them back slowly over and over again in an act of defiance when he wouldn't share with me and my friends - and pulled me off on my own to chat. He got me water when I said I was too drunk to drink, asked for my number and arranged a date for the following Thursday. He has since text me every day, we've had our date (London Eye, romance) and he hung out at my house with my friends all weekend. The ban may just be officially lifted...
♥ We (the house) bought chocolate brown sofa covers that definitely don't look the way they did on eBay. We're thinking of returning them. Because unless the 'giant brown tent' look comes into fashion, we have absolutely no use for them. Wah.
Shrek is love, Shrek is life. (NSFW. Seriously.)

♥ Crunchie ice cream for breakfast, followed by a same day cheeky lunchtime massage (chair) - London y'all!
♥ My new business cards, which were personalised by the work creatives using a list of my favourite things, and turned out brilliantly. They're a talented bunch.
♥ The Lipton's #BeADaybreaker campaign. Free stuff is probably my favourite thing about London living. There's a gig on Friday at Old Street Roundabout that I'm looking forward to checking out on my way to the office. Info here.
♥ My work friend Alice's definition of a 'muffin top' - she's somehow managed to turn the term into an endearing compliment. Such a muffin top. I love her (and Jo, who was also a part of the conversation.)

When you're older don't you want something to regret?


How this girl hasn't been signed  to a major label (though there is an EP coming - see you at the July launch?) is beyond me. So into her sound.
