30 Seriously Instagram-Worthy Buys For Your Desk


I was going to do another homeware round-up, but you know what? There’s nothing new out there, at ALL.

OK, I lie. There’s a pretty sassy cushion from H&M that says ‘when in doubt, vacation’. Which is pretty damn me. Aside from y’know, I’m not American.

After questions about starting a blog and breaking into journalism, my most asked question is about where to buy notepads and stationery from. Srsly.

So here ya go guys, here’s some of my favourite little pieces online right now.

Marks & Spencer is absolutely bloody killing it. I’m obsessed with their cute slogans and prints – some of their pieces have a real Kate Spade feel and are super affordable.

I’ve also included a few mesmerising pieces from KS even though clearly none of us can *quite* afford it. Sob. But it’s nice to have something to aspire to, am’I right? But seriously, Kate Spade is my homeware and office dream – I love all the tiny thank you cards and trinkets even more than the bags.

Except no, because this. Maybe there’ll be an outlet store in Vegas? please PLZ?

  • I am loving little trays and bowls at the moment! No. 1 and 27, yes please!


  • I love all of these things!!! Totes agree about Marks. I went in for groceries the other day (just a few, because why-is-everything-in-there-so-yummy-and-expensive) and came out with a few new notebooks. xx

  • I want ALL OF THIS. Your lists always make me spend more than I should!

  • Love the M&S notebook set!!


  • Haven’t been in m&S for aaaages! Hannah, how do you get your images in one of those grid things?

  • Oh jeez, I need all of them…

  • I loved these! I’m a sucker for stationary so this post means I’m now probably going to go spend a small fortune on lots of new desk-things. Oops! I agree that Kate Spade is definitely the dream for homeware. One day, I will have a pinterest-worthy help…especially with this post to spur on my stationary splurging haha 🙂

  • Going back to school was always so bittersweet. Obvs no more summer days spent on MSN but new school shoes and £30 worth of gel pens and stationary…. Wish there was the same excuse now. Sophie xx

  • Ooooh I love those M&S notebooks. I am nearly finished my latest work notebook, so I might need to grab a set and use one as my next one!

    I just discovered you today so I’m not sure what the Vegas comment is referring to, are you going there on holiday? But I just moved to England from Arizona where I was really close to Vegas and had family who lived there. I bought the handbag I am using as we speak at a Kate Spade outlet in Vegas so if you are going there you are in luck. ? just thought I’d share.

  • ASDA actually have some really cute homeware/stationary bits in at the moment, which really surprised me!
    Anything from paper chase is a must for me 🙂

  • nueyork

    There are so many beautiful things here!


  • Those plants just look amazing I think! So obsessed with your picks, I especially love the globe lamp. I am counting the days until I finally get to decorate my own space!!
