I’m not sure how normal it is but I love all things stationary and the prettier, the better. As a result, I’m always on the look out for websites/shops that sell it… especially as it comes close to a new academic year at uni!
So, when I heard about Typo.com from one of my friends, I had to have a look. Once I did, I knew than an order would have to be on the cards… 👀
So, today I’m sharing my little haul with you guys…
My first thought when it comes to stationary for a new academic year is always the prospect of new pencil case, and on Typo you are spoilt for choice. There’s loads of different styles, patterns and colours so I’m sure they’ll be something for everyone. I found this “Bits ‘n’ pieces” case, which I love! The different colours and patterns are RIGHT up my street, and the gold lettering brings everything together.
Once the pencil case is nailed, the next thing I always consider is pens and pencils (of course)! Again Typo do not disappoint, they have a great range that are all super cool and very instagram worthy. I went for these “Printed Multi Pens” in both the daisy print and the pink unicorn print, as well as the aqua & gold “Pencil me in” pencils. I like to use a range of colours when taking notes, so these pens are perfect for me. The pencils are also ideal for me scribbling down ideas for essays (or for procrastination via blog post ideas or doodles).
Hating to state the obvious… BUT with great pencils, comes great responsibility… to get a great pencil sharpener (of course)! Typo have some of the most crazy & qwerky sharpeners and I went for this rose gold number to go with my (apparent) gold theme. Although it is much bigger than I originally expected I still love it. It might not be the most practical, as it’s too big to go in a pencil case, I think it will look amazing on my desk and double up as a cute little accessory piece.
Next, I went on to look at notebooks and WOW... they have SO many amazing ones! Just go and have a look, honestly you’ll be spoilt for choice, I certainly was. I did however, manage to contain my excitement and refrain from buying one of each colour & style (it was very tough though, as you can imagine).
Instead I bought these four which were my favourite of the bunch! The first is an A5, whilst the other three are A4. I’ll be using all for uni work expect for the last one which I plan to create a shrine for…OR use it for craft & blog ideas. I’m still unsure. 😝 😝 😝
The next thing I bought were simple folder dividers, which was the only area Typo disappointed a tad… There were only two different options for dividers, the ones I bought (which can be seen below) or some plain brown craft style ones. Although I do like the colours in these dividers, other stationary stores do seem to have a better range. I can’t really bring myself to complain about these though, as I think Typo have nailed every other aspect of the stationary field…
In total contrast… I was beyond impressed with the range of homeware accessories offered by Typo. They have some amazing things, including some gorgeous lighting options. They have everything from patterned lantern lights, fairy lights, light boxes AND (best of all for me) mini marque letters to use to spell out initials etc.
I bought two letters, one for my first initial and one for my boyfriends. As well as an “&” sign in plain black to tie the two together. I plan to use them on our desks at university as a cute little accessory… I am super pleased with how they look!
To finish my little stationary/homeware haul I decided to branch out into other areas of their range. I got a few rather random little pieces including: a gold glitter phone case, an “F” initial sticker (to go on my laptop or a folder) and a sleep mask because…well…WHY NOT?
So overall… it’s safe to say that I’m thrilled with all of my purchases from Typo. I think they have some brilliant products at really decent prices. They also have frequent sales which means getting lots of these products for a steal! So I’d say it’s definitely worth being on their mailing list!
Also a tip to ALL of you guys…
If you join the Typo mailing list you also receive 20% off your first order, which got me a massive saving on all of this stuff… So I’d recommend it!
None of this is sponsored (I wish 😂!!)… So I purchased all of these items myself after a friend recommended the site to me!
I simply wanted to share my experience with you guys, and it’s been fab. I hope you guys have enjoyed reading and looking at all of this stuff as much as I’ve enjoyed telling you about it!
Thanks for reading, please let me know if you like these type of posts and I can do more for you!
