Back to University: Haul - Part 2

Part 2 of my Back to Uni Haul! 

This part is full of Notebooks and files! 


From Paperchase is the Midsummer large wiro journal. It retails at £8

The design on the front is super adorable. It has a background of what looks like vintage materials and then has an overlay of photos of butterflies, birds, flowers and lace. The butterflies have a shiny film overlay. It is a hardback notebook and first page has an ink splats and cherry print and then the pages are lined and are an off white cream colour. 


The next notebook is again from Paperchase but was bought for £5.45 a little while ago and it doesn't seem to be on the website. 

It is of A4 size and has a plastic cover held together with a rubber band closing. The cover is clear with coloured flowers. The flower colours are Tiffany Blue, Orange, Red, Pink, Green, Purple and Yellow. The paper is quite thick and strong and will not show the ink on the other side. Good quality paper is what I look for in a suitable notebook. 


From Accessorize, I got two notebooks in the Summer sale. 

The first, a cardboard backed notebooks with a mix of prints on the front including flamingos, an elephant and florals. It has an elastic band closure and the pages are quite thick but you can see print of text on the opposite side. It isn't quite A5 as it is a little larger. I got this for around £4 (I think!)


The next, I got two of these, they are a plastic covered notebook with a vintage mix print including a union jack heart, bunting and butterflies. It has an elastic band closure and the inside pages are printed with a sparrow on the bottom right page with "tweet tweet" and musical notes and on the top left of the opposite page there is a blue butterfly. The pages are quite thick but again you can see a print of the text on the opposite side which is a slight let down. I bought two of these books because they were around £4 each in the sale from Accessorize.


The next notebook I got whilst in York in May this year. 
(I am going back in October so keep your eyes peeled for a haul!)

It is from the largely popular store, Jack Wills. It retails at £5 and you can now get a different design (see here) for the same price!

The notebook is quite small for the price but it is the brand name you are paying for and is okay if you just looking for something small to remember your visit. The book has a card front and back cover and has a Union Jack background with pink letters spelling out WILLS emblazoned across the middle. There is a elastic band closure and the biggest let down was the fact that the inside pages are squared rather than lined. I use the book as a handbag to do list book. 


From WHSmith, I picked up this notebook from the Songbird range which you can find here. (unfortunately the notebook does not seem to be on the website but I bought it in store about 2 weeks ago). It was around £5.99.

It is a hardback notebook with a Tiffany blue background with gold, pink and teal accents in the form of birds and swirl designs. It has an elastic band closure and the inside pages are an off white cream colour. They are thick but you can see the text forms on the back. 


From Clinton's which is generally a card shop but it stocks the Me to You gift range also. I found in their clearance this notebook on half prince down from £3.99 to £1.99. 

The cover is a thin card with a photograph of a Me to You bear from the Photo Finish range. It has a lovely pink background with my favourite flower, the pink gerbera. The pages have a similar photo on the bottom right hand page and this is a grey colour rather than in colour print. 


The last notebook is from WHSmith and I got this on clearance. It was reduced to £2.45.

 It is a project notebook meaning alongside the lined paper there is dividers to organise your notes. The paper inside is of good quality. The cover has a black and white check design on it and a hot pink elastic band closure. The dividers are pink also. 


Next, is a file organiser. It is a fantastic concept I think. I got this one from WHSmith on sale for £3.99. It has a stripe design and is a hard back with a elastic band closure. 

There are four metal rings which open to sort out the file inside and remove, add and move the pages inside. There is a contents page for each of the five sections. The dividers are plastic and are blue and green coloured. The paper inside is of fabulous quality and there is space to add more when needed. I think this will be fantastic when I start putting together my dissertation! 


The final thing (hallelujah!) is a folder from WHSmith's: Winnie the Pooh range. It is an A4 file which costs £3.79. Get it here!

The folder is a lovely brown paper bag colour and has a lovely little quote which says "Some friends are smaller than others" which I personally thought was super cute because, well I am a petite girl! The file has two metal rings and the inside has a map of the 100 acre wood (the setting for Winnie the Pooh). 


that's it. I'm finally done!
