Cuteness Aboard!

Note: I used to put prices as a service for those who wanted to know, but I'm feeling this exposes my spendings abit too much, so I'm no longer going to put in prices. ^__^ For those who asked, I got the mug from Isetan! :D There's a Sanrio store at the 3rd level of Isetan Scotts. :D

Ok, on to today's post. I recently told Tracy that I also hauled some stationery and promised I'd show her my haul. :D So, today's post is about stationery.

I am basically a writer - meaning, I tend to express myself better in writing (those who have met me in person will know I'm not really chatty at all). I tend to write alot and I also make alot of lists, including shopping lists! LOL.

On top of that, I am also a sucker for sweet and cute things. Hence, I have alot of notebooks. I went through a phase where I liked Moleskin alot, but I had to cut down on that very expensive addiction. I have since substituted it with cute notebooks and notepads (for my lists).

Recently I found cute notebooks and notepads from Daiso. I had to pick up one of each design. I think you can tell, I tend to go for stuff that are mostly pink/red stationery/accessories. I think it's to make up for the lack of colour in my clothes. :D

From Daiso. The inside pages are decorated too! (So worth it! LOL!)

Also from Daiso. I picked up these notepads at the Isetan Anniversary Sale from Isetan stationery department. Worth it, with the 10% discount. All the papers are decorated and so cute! I get so happy writing lists on these papers. It makes even my boring job interesting when I write my to-do lists on these papers. The one of the right-most is from Daiso, the Rilakkuma and Kireizukinseikatu from Isetan stationery department. To tell the truth, I picked up some folders I'd been eyeing for a long time too. At 10% discount as well. I don't know what I'll put inside those folders. And some cute mechanical pencils too. I'll show them to you in another post if I get round to photographing them. :D © Copyright. All rights reserved.

Aw, I'm just like you! I'm definitely more of a writer than speaker. Out of curiosity.. do you mean real moleskin was used on notebooks? I love cute notebooks and planners :) I like to write everything down. Daiso is the place to go to for all things affordable and cute!

Cute notebooks! I have a couple of cute notebooks too, but they closed down a lot of the japanese shops around my area, that use to have notebooks, and cute stationary items.
