Briefcase Visiting Card Holder
My grandfather was a hyper-organised man. My *slight* OCD and love for stationery was inculcated by him from a young age. Before the beginning of the school year, we would sit together on the floor of my study room and cover all my books. Also, he carried a briefcase to work every day. So when I was looking for some fun stationery to indulge in for the season, I stumbled upon this adorable little briefcase visiting card holder — and all those memories came rushing right back. Do you see how cool I would look at an event, taking out a visiting card from this tiny little briefcase and handing it over to someone? I’m sold.

Kitty Party Notebook
I love handwritten notes — still. Call me old-school, but there’s something very personal and irreplaceable about having a personal notebook. Which is why this totally cool Kitty Party Epic Notebook is all things LOVE! It’s quirky and has ruled pages, which makes life of an OCD (when it comes to formatting!) person so much easier. This is my bedside table’s perennial accessory.

Inspirational Planner Cards
I’m a huge stationary buff! I LOVE my fancy pens and pencils, and wouldn’t trade them for anything in the world. While there is a planner in my phone, I like to go old-school ever so often, and jot down the important stuff in this planner that doubles up as my personal cheerleader. I adore the motivational quotes that goad me to keep going and stay focused.

So my intense love for the feline kind has probably been pretty established by now, with everyone sort of thinking that I am on my way to turning into cat lady (no, I haven’t forgotten — I am leaving out the ‘crazy’ on purpose). I love anything that involves cats and these bookends put two of my fave things together — literally! The stretching cats bookend is so adorable and will instantly light up my stack of favourite reads. I mean, even a dog person is going to find this totally adorable, right?

If I am anything, it is a stationary junkie! From glow-in-the-dark markers to funky paper clips, I am a proud owner of everything quirky. Instead of buying clothes, I end up spending my salary on journals. So naturally, my Diwali bonus will be spent on something that satisfies my inner DIY insect. Enter Cooliyo, a great website for curated stationary products, and this owl stapler from there just won my heart! Vibrant and colourful, exactly like me!

I’ve recently re-discovered my obsession with colouring books and my weapons to beat stress are these gorgeous colouring pencils from Koh-i-noor. It’s made with lead and strong lacquer, which translates to a subliminal colouring experience.

Things To Do Chalkboard
I can’t function without my to-do lists on a daily basis, and my pretty journals are too cute to be scribbled on. And hence, this pretty chalkboard comes to my rescue. It comes with a magnet on its cover so all I need to do is place it on my desk and I’m good to go. And with this adorable little chalkboard, I won’t need to hunt for my daily motivation every morning, either. *Yay*
