So, the new year is upon us and I decided to take a bit longer to get back into blogging this year. That’s not what this article is about, though. Stationary has always had a special place in my heart. My stationary obsession started when I was in primary school, but that’s beside the point. The last few days I have bought items from the stationary store, Typo so I thought I would put together a list of my favourite Typo products.
I carry around with me a pale pink and white patterned buffalo journal for just random notes. While pink isn’t my colour, I love the journal because it fits into my bag and I can take it anywhere with me. I love jotting down notes like keeping track of the pitches I send in to submission websites and whatnot. Unlike my Kikki-K Planner, I don’t have a special pen for it. I just use whatever pen I have at my disposal.
When Typo Narellan opened, I was excited because it meant I wouldn’t need to the closest town’s Typo. This was also the day I bought my favorite mug. It has the same pattern as my buffalo journal, but it’s gold instead of white and the background of the mug is white. I love it as it reminds me of those bohemian hand tattoos that Lovisa use to sell.
My beloved MacBook Pro rarely leaves my desk, but when it does, it goes out in style. I have this amazing laptop bag that I cannot live without. It’s lightweight and it’s not bulky like my backpack and I don’t need to carry it up stairs like I did back in my days at film school (yes, I’m looking at you broken down lifts!)
Having grown up with Disney, I got excited when Typo announced it’s Disney collection last year. I couldn’t resist and bought a Mickey Mouse pen to add to my stationary hoard. I didn’t have anything to use it with until I started using my Kikki-K planner. I love it because of the sparkles and the Mickey hand. However, the only thing that annoys me is when the hand gets stuck.
Clam Stress Toy
Who doesn’t hate getting stressed out? I know I hate it so much. I was in Typo one day and thought I would buy a stress toy. Since mermaids are the inspiration for my phone cover, I thought I would buy a clam. I call him… Clammy.
No woman wants to give up their beloved bag, and unfortunately, I needed to. My favorite satchel was on the verge of falling apart. I made the decision to buy a whole new bag. Originally, I wanted to the get the backpack with the Mickey Mouse ears, but there weren’t any, so I had a look at the other backpacks and found the one I liked the most. I have so much black in my wardrobe, it’s not funny. I go for bags that stand out and this bag did, especially since it was in brown.
No writer’s bounty is complete without a stash of pens. As a frequent Typo geek, I have a truckload of pens from the place. I love them. The pens I love the most are the Smooth Operator ones that come in a variety of colours. Whenever Typo has a theme, I try buy the associated pens to match the theme.
Bart and Lisa Simpson Sticky Notes
Who didn’t watch at least one episode of The Simpsons as a child? I’m currently re-watching the entire show from the beginning. Anyway, during 2017, Typo had a Simpsons theme. I bought a notebook with Milhouse on the front and I wanted a tote bag with the Kwik-E Mart on the front. However, I was given a Kwik-E Mart one, but not the one I wanted. So, I looked it up online and bought it from the website. Also, I bought Bart and Lisa Simpson Sticky Notes. I haven’t used many of them because I can’t buy any more of them if I run out.
Wonder Woman Pencil Case
A year before the Wonder Woman film entered cinemas, I geared up for the film’s release. Just… I did it at the wrong time. I wasn’t even aware that Typo’s current theme was Wonder Woman until I walked into the store. It was this day, I realised I loved the Typo brand.
Owl Pen Cup
For as long as I can remember, I have idolised the owl, an ancient symbol for wisdom via the goddess, Athena. When I saw that Typo had an owl pen holder, I just needed to get one. At first, I thought nothing of it, until I realised how cool it would be if I had my spirit animal (so to speak) sitting on my desk. My little buddy is called Mister Owl.
No matter what kind of writer you are, Typo has all the awesome products. Every time I go out, I end up going in and seeing if they have anything new that I can add to my collection. I love it and I would encourage anyone who is reading this and loves stationary to give the place a shot.
