Hello, my name is Tamira and I'm a stationery addict.

These kinds of hauls are my modus operandi, so I'm sure I'm not surprising anyone with this baby haul today. I visited Papersmiths in Bristol recently (papped here on my Instagram), and basically found my own personal Nirvana, so I wanted to bring this fantastically styled store to everyone's attention, and shout out the pretties I got.

I'm a long-time fan of The Gentlewoman and have been meaning to pick up the Sophia Coppola edition for a while now - I spotted this and Kinfolk, both being regulars of mine and both being the last copies on the shelves. It was kismet. One of the things I love so much about both of these, aside from the hugely aesthetically pleasing look and feel of them, is the pace of how they read. A lot of women's monthlies or glossies have quite a fast-paced, shouty feel to them. Everything on the page is competing for your attention and spending power. Because the focus of these magazines isn't solely commercial, there's a lot of white space and a lot of breath around the content. It's like a three course meal rather than a quick bite from McDs. Both are fine in their own rights, but one feeds your soul.

I'd like everyone to know it's possible to fall in love with a notebook and I have found my One - this Appointed textured notebook is going to be my blog and freelance bullet journal lite. I'm not sure I'm quite ready to commit to a BuJo just yet but I figure with the squared pages in this I can give the basic system a try and see if it works for me. The weight, feel and paper quality of this make it such a joy to use. Highly recommend!

And finally, perhaps most excitingly - we are off to Rome! So of course, I had to pick up the millennial pink adorned Wallpaper guide to the city - irritatingly, I do want the little collection of these in all of their Pantone colours, lined up on my bookshelf. I just am a marketer's dream, aren't I? Such a sucker for a beautiful spine.

Anyway, that was all from my whirlwind trip around Papersmiths! If you're visiting Brizzle or you're anywhere near Box Park, they've just opened an outlet in London and I would NOT be missing out on all the paper-y goodness, if I were you. Just look how cute their totes are!
