My Updated Notebook and Stationery Collection
I have a sort of unhealthy obsession with all things notebook and stationery. Put me in a bookstore or a stationery store and you could leave me there all day (give me some coffee and food and I am never leaving)! Today I decided to share with you all some beautiful and amazing notebooks, pens and post its.

(Just to let you know that everything is from indigo.ca (not an affiliate link) except for the post-its… I just have an actual obsession with the store).
Sometimes we need those little bursts or little quotes to keep us going. I know that when I’m going to be knee deep in a 15-page essay, a little motivation will go a long way. We tend to buy the standard blue and black pen, but spicing things up or making things cuter adds to a certain aesthetic but personally, it makes me more motivated to write. I love how these pens are adorable and have the most inspiring little quotes on them, which motivates me to conquer the world.
We all have goals but keeping them in one place where we can constantly go back to is the key to making these goals a reality. I use this notebook to write down and structure my short-term goals that are contributing to a long-term goal. The notebook breaks down your goal, gives you a slot for a deadline, makes you set your Why for the goal, predict the outcomes you will face and the necessary steps to take, as well as what you will reward yourself with once your goal is reached. This notebook keeps me organized and accountable.
When I read the quote, it stuck with me and I knew I had to have it. The quote reads “She was one of the rare ones so effortlessly herself, and the world loved her for it”. Every time I need a reminder of who I am and where I’m going I go back to this quote and let it guide me in my way.
There Is Beauty in Simplicity
As aesthetically pleasing as this notebook is, I use it more for the practicality it offers. I have multiple notebooks like this one but with different covers because they make the perfect notebooks. I use them in class to take notes, for miscellaneous things and this one is being used for anything to do with habits and my blog.
This is my dream/vision notebook. Anything I want to do, any dream of the future that I have is marked down in this journal. This is where I dream big and not let anything hold me back. When I first saw the cover, I knew that this journal would hold all the dreams that had to come out of my head.
Meet Me in Paris
This is the cutest set of post its I have ever seen; however, this is not from indigo, unfortunately. I bought them with the intention to use them when I plan my study abroad semester in Paris in a few months.
I love writing, dreaming and thinking. Notebooks, pens, stationery in general, are the tools I use to express who I am and what I want from life, and how I am going to get there. Before anything on this blog is published, it all starts off in these notebooks. Writing for me is like keeping a record of my life, and thoughts and I write so much because there are so many ideas and dreams that I want to reach and accomplish.
I hope this gave you some motivation to pick up a cute notebook and pen and write whatever you feel the need to write. Comment down below which one is your favorite notebook.
