When your life is a mess, only one thing will help: stationery

Spring is here, which means one thing: it’s time for a stationery revamp.

Stationery has the power to add method to the madness of life. When everyone else is letting you down, it’s comforting to know that stationery never will. Unless that is, you opt for the low-grade sticky notes…

Spring is as good an excuse as any to give a little revamp to the assortment of items on your desk, and with so many gorgeous new items available online, it’s all too easy to get your feel-good fix. If anything has the power to immediately turn a frown upside down, it’s selection of whimsical desk accessories, lipstick-shaped highlighters and dog-themed page markers.

Don’t forget, your stationery repertoire says a lot about you as a person so it’s worth giving it the attention and respect it deserves. After all, it’s the little things.
