Make It Personal: Stationary Essentials

I’ve always had an obsession with stationery – don’t ask me why! Ever since high school, i’ve collected beautiful planners, notebooks and cards. I think it makes me feel organized, and I especially have a soft spot for hand-written notes on gorgeous paper cards. Writing thank you letters is a dying artform, but I love the tradition. I think it’s so much more special than just pinging somebody a text or email.  Whether writing a simple thank you note, a congrats message or a romantic “thinking of you” letter, quality, chic materials make all the difference. Here are my favorite stationery essentials to have at your desk!

 

Personalized Details: A thank you note is a great way to remind your loved ones just how much you value them. Having personalized cards made with your address or initials on them, is a really elegant touch. Look for a monogrammed print, or just go for something in your favorite color.

 

Letterhead: A professional letterhead on good quality paper looks really sophisticated. While embossing is ideal, a simple color palette and clean design is a is really impactful. But it’s up to you – let the design express your personal flare, your brand, your family, your company – it does a lot more than a plain old email!

 

Fountain Pens: Ok so this is another personal obsession. No point buying all this gorgeous stationery and then writing in ballpoint pens. A hand-written note deserves a classic fountain pen. The look is totally different – it’s old school inky amazingness!

So to all the mummies out there... how is the jump from 1 to 2 👶? Not quite ready yet, but pondering!
  • I’m freezing. Should’ve worn my thermal vest like Mum said 👕 
But I do love these jeans!
  • London Fashion Week I’ve missed you! 
Ps. This is my mum’s @marksandspencer coat from the ‘80’s, how cool is that 😎
  • Bill and Ben, the flower pot men 🌾
  • The faux-leather skirt of dreams... Such a perfect piece for giving me a bit of power when I need it. Link in bio for why I love the power of the leather skirt and shop my faves http://liketk.it/2KktR #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Between work trips and house moving, I haven’t had a chance to get to a gym. I really enjoyed my training session with @pvolve the other weekend but the best thing about them is that you can stream the exercises from home, which makes working out in my own time so much easier.

  • #ad Getting ready for a biiiig red carpet tonight in London, I’ll be chatting to every star of @skytv’s brand new #SkyUpNext shows... watch my takeover live on @SkyTV’s IG, and plan your sofa entertainment for the rest of 2020! Ps. These shows are epic, I got a sneak peek 📺 🧐

  • I don’t love what the long winter has done to my energy levels & skin! Some of the little changes I made since moving from LA, for winter wellbeing: porridge for brekkie, homemade ginger tea, oversized cosy jumpers and @LumityLife supplements. The morning capsules stop me reaching for a second (or third!) coffee, and the night time vitamins have helped me wind down & sleep better.
