On the Fourth Day of Christmas | For Scrawling Words


Words are the reason I got into blogging. I love words, I love the written word. My spoken word is mumbling and often incoherent but I feel I can express myself better through writing.

I have a thousand ideas spiralling around my head and most times they never get onto the page. I have thoughts about writing books, comics, essays and diaries but I hesitate in giving them form on the page, fear of writing rubbish and ruining my lovely collection of notebooks and stationery.

My monogrammed Moleskine I picked up in Berlin.

At any one time, I usually have at least 3 notebooks and a selection of pens on hand. I like to be prepared for when inspiration and motivation come together in a synergistic miracle. 

With all this in mind, today's post is gifts for the blogger or writer.

On the Fourth Day of Christmas I spotted this for me... for scrawling words.

In my opinion you can't go wrong with a Moleskine notebook. Plain for sketches, lined for notes or dots and grids for bullet journalling; all needs are covered. Their collaborations add some fun to the covers but a simple block colour is the chicest. For a special touch, get it personalised with their name or a message.

I've recently expanded my pen collection to include a couple of Lamy pens. I normally stick with refillable aluminium pens from Muji but was drawn to the bold colours and chunky profiles.
The Lamy Safari pens make a great stocking filler or add-on to a diary or notebook. Go for a contrasting colour to really make it pop.

We can all stand to be more organised. While we carry hugely powerful computers in our pockets with vast organisational abilities however there is still something so strong in writing things down. 
If you need a more professional-looking (ie boring) diary for work etc, pick one up in Poundland. Christmas is an excuse to indulge yourself or someone with something unusual like the bold botanic print cover.
The open-dated planner from Ohh Deer means you're not as tied to dates as you our with a traditional journal or diary so you can drop in and out as you need. I love that it lists as objectives not to-do, leaving it open to interpretation, allowing you to be as creative as you like.
