Smythson Pocket Notebook: Want list no more

Well, my want list series is proving as a bit of a gift list!

I received a late birthday present from my boyfriend’s lovely parents. It arrived in the post like this:smythson

Which opened to this:

A beautiful Smythson Pocket Notebook, with a lambskin cover, à la my recent WANT LIST post.

It’s pretty lovely eh? The paper is light blue/grey and featherweight. The only real negative about this notebook is that I don’t think anything I ever need to write down will be worth of it’s luxury… But I’ll have to get over that and think of a special purpose for it.

Thanks Bish and Steve!

WANT LIST: Smythson Pocket Notebook

I’m starting a new series, the WANT LIST. My problem at the moment is that I keep buying all the stationery things I want, rather than just covet them. So in the interest of not being bankrupt, I will be posting about lovely things I have seen but don’t necessarily NEED to own.

So, my first one is a Smythson Pocket Notebook:

I walked home today (4 miles in a very tight pencil skirt, in 25 degrees…), through London City, with it’s luxury shops, and it was the Smythson shop caught my eye.

Their pocket notebooks really are a thing of simplistic beauty, with their leather covers and lightweight paper.

Some of them have embossed titles, such as ‘Blondes, Brunettes, and Redheads’, ‘Dare to Dream’, and ‘The Boss’, but I prefer to keep it simple, either plain, or ‘Notes’ are the classiest ones I think.

Anyway, after seeing the price – £45!!!!! – I think this’ll be staying firmly on the ‘want’ list. I can’t ever imagine thinking anything I had to write down is quite that important!

What stationery items are on your want list?
