Life is Short…Make it Pretty


{A few of my favorite things}

It’s been a while since I created a style piece so here goes, kids. My inner Sanrio-loving child is still obsessed with personalized stationary, notebooks and the like so here are some of the latest and greatest discoveries I’ve made in the paper arena:

1) Falvorlope: In the “So wrong, yet so right department,” we’ve got the Flavorlope. Yes, as in chocolate-flavored envelopes. Available in apple, cherry, grape, orange and strawberry, too, you will never have to tongue another icky ‘lope again. Available here. Take a lick and let me know what you think, freaks.

2) Erin Condren Life Planner: Aside from being able to upload a flattering picture of myself to this planner, I adore the inside just as much. Open this puppy up and there’s plenty of space to write, loads of stickers, tabs, inspiring quotes and more. These also make great gifts and are available here.

3) Washi tape: Sayonara, run-of-the-mill tape. I discovered Washi tape on Instagram (thanks, Michelle!) and am quite obsessed. I use it all over my planner, wrap presents with it, and even to adorn glass votive holders with Washi. Brillz! There are so many patterns to choose from on Etsy but I got my birdies-sitting-on-a-line one here.

4) Maybooks: Designer Mica was sick of ugly notebooks, so she made pretty ones in the shape of Maybooks. Notebook junkies like myself (and reader Romi) love this choose-your-own adventure line — the patterns, monograms and fonts are to die.  Availaible here. These also make for thoughtful prezzies.
