Who loves stationery? I do, I do, I do! Honestly, for as long as I can remember I've had this issue with stationery, I buy it just to look at and sadly Ash can be the same (especially for him with notebooks) which means we have a whole load of unused ones around the bungalow. That said from time to time I do try and take a deep breath and write in one, as one that first word has been placed inside it is all OK to keep on going.
Matilda Myres at Tangible Stationery
Tangible Stationery stock three fabulous brands Forbes which I shall look a bit at later in the post, Matilda Myres and Matilda Moo.
Matilda Myres (and Matilda Moo) are made by Scottish designer Matilda Myres. The Matilda Myres selection offering an original range of notebooks, list pads and gift sets. While Matilda Moo takes on a more young-at-heart design on diaries (honestly moonicorn and baanicorn check them out)!
Matilda Myres Notebook
I was kindly sent this beautiful baby blue and rosegold notebook from the Matilda Myres selection on the Tangible Stationery website. I have to admit I love the geometric design of this notebook and while as you would expect it is filled with ruled pages, I absolutely love the added touches with come on the first page. Allowing you to fill in answers to questions such as: your name and address, the notebook number (in case you use it as a journal), as well as a space to write down pages which may include special memories, or notes of interest.
This particular notebook is paperback, contains 192 pages of 80gsm ivory paper and is A5 in size (for those who love to know the specifics). Personally, I have to admit I think it is such a lovely notebook to have to hand. It really feels nice to handle and it smooth to write in. What's more, it doesn't cost the earth as it comes in at just £7.95.
Forbes Classic Notebook Dotted
The lovely people at Tangible Stationery also included a bit of a surprise in my parcel, this absolutely lovely personalised notebook from Forbes. Much like the Matilda Myres notebook, the front page offers space for your name, any pages of interest and which number the notebook may be in the series. This book in particular will, of course, become one of my planning books for my blog, after all, what else could I do with something so nice?
If you fancy treating yourself to a Forbes Classic notebook they come in a choice of colours and lined, squared or dotted and start from £12.95 without personalisation.

Of course I mentioned in the title this post is also a competition, that's as Tangible Stationery were kind enough to send me two of the beautiful baby blue and rose gold Matilda Myres notebooks, so I have an extra on to hand to giveaway!
