stationery additions from Ryman's!

A few weeks' ago, I wrote a guest post for Ryman's where I featured a few products from them. I thought I'd do a proper post talking about these products and why I chose them. 

From top left, clockwise: Acrylic three drawer storage, an A6 ruled Moleskine, transparent Magic Sticky Notes, Sharpie fineliners, a Paperblanks notebook and a pack of Staedtler Stick 430s.
Table storage is a pretty important thing to me - I often have a full table of notes when studying and so maximising storage space for my extensive stationery collection is essential. Not only that, I am very obsessed with ensuring that my workspace and room is kept as tidy as possible and storage definitely helps with that.

The Sharpie fineliners are perfect for when I draw out diagrams and I draw quite a few of them: mind maps, signalling pathways and reflex arcs are a few I've featured on my Instagram page.

The Magic Sticky Notes don't have any adhesive to them - they cling onto things through static alone and are re-usable if you use a whiteboard pen. I wanted to give these a try as conventional sticky notes were boring me a bit. A friend had also recommended the Magic Whiteboard to me but these sticky notes definitely appeal to me more. Just one thing though: I found that one of the magic sticky notes has curled up and lost it's ability to cling to things. I originally had it on my bookshelf (a shiny white Expedit) and I found it on the floor today, all curled up. I'm unsure why as it isn't near a heater but it is near sunlight so maybe that played a part?

A6 notebooks are something I can't ever have enough of due to their useful pocket size. Finally, a Paperblanks notebook - can you believe this is my first one? The cover is silk and the quality of the paper is just amazing. In the past, I've found it hard to like Paperblanks notebooks as I've found their designs a bit weird (for want of a better word) but this one definitely appealed to me a lot more. It is pretty and aesthetically pleasing in an understated way and though I usually prefer elastic closures, a magnetic one makes a nice change.

All of these products are welcome additions to my stationery collection and workspace area and I can't wait to put them all into use :)
