The Stamford Notebook

If you follow me on Instagram you will know that last month my husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary. I can't believe how quickly a whole year has gone by! We both agreed not to get each other a 'big' present but instead get a little token gift to mark the occasion as well as going out for a meal that evening.

As the first year of marriage is traditionally symbolised with paper I wanted to stick to this theme so I chose a notebook from Neil as I'm currently obsessed with stationary and organisation! I originally thought of a Moleskin notebook but I wasn't keen on any of the colours, but after watching an Essiebutton vlog, she had visited a home show where The Stamford Notebook Company were on display. From what I could see, they had a great range of colours and after looking through their website I opted for the bright turquoise colour as it reminded me of our wedding colour theme. There are other options to customise the notebook such as having plain or ruled pages, small or large sizes and having your initials embossed onto the front cover.

I went for ruled pages, large size and plain embossed (new) initials on the front. I absolutely love my new notebook! It sounds odd but even the paper feels nice and soft. The company is based in Stamford, England and all the notebooks are handmade - two things I love about this company. I feel I am supporting a home grown, British company and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a great quality notebook to organise your thoughts...I'm already looking at my next purchase!
