Even though I left school many moons ago, this time of year always makes me think of new stationary. It’s as though a fresh start can only happen when I have a new notebook and pens! So, I recently went into Typo to hunt down my fave stationary finds for the year ahead.

MINI PLANNERS from Moleskine ® on Vimeo.

Things have been a little crazy around these parts. The usual December madness of catch-ups, cocktails and cheer is in overdrive and things have never been busier (or more exciting) on the work front.


So, I thought the perfect tonic would be one part part frivolous and two parts brilliance. Created by Dutch visual artist, Rogier Wieland, this stop-motion for Moleskine Mini Planners might just be more sensational than the product itself….if that’s at all possible when it comes to anything Moleskine related!

Calligraphy Stamp

I’ve always had serious handwriting envy of my mum. Every word I write looks like a collection of long, skinny spider legs. Whereas her letters are always jolly, perfectly rounded and satisfying.


I’ve finally found a way to fake it ’till I make it though! Check out these customised calligraphy stamps from Primele.

Sorry mum, but you’ve just been pumped from your pedestal!

From US$ 35; available online from Primele’s Etsy store.



Ask Alice Stationery


I have obsessive list disorder. Every Sunday I write a list of all my big ideas and plans for the week ahead. Then, each night I break it down and write a list for the following day. I still can’t work out whether it’s the act of writing the list or crossing it off that has me hooked.

I’m also very particular about where my lists are housed. Usually it’s a Moleskine. But when I went to buy a new one this morning, I ended up walking out with this Ask Alice book instead. Designed and printed in Melbourne, it’s made from 100 recycled paper and printed with non-toxic, vegetable-based inks. Plus, there are a few sneaky dividers made from vintage comic books and a secret pocket in the back.

I’m so enamoured with my new notebook that I couldn’t wait for my usual evening list-writing fix. So, I did what any self-respecting list addict would do – I made a list of my lists!

AU $26; available online from Ask Alice.

Moleskine’s Passion Collection

My love of Moleskine is only (just) second to my love of wine. Which is why Moleskine’s new Passions Collection is a match made in heaven!


Each of these journals features a layout oriented toward recording and recalling thoughts, memories and notes about six of life’s great passions – food, wine, wellness, film, books and movies.

Hmmm…the obvious choice for their next volume is a journal devoted to life’s seventh passion: Moleskine!

Ps: If you’d rather try before you buy, you can download and test the page layouts for each of the Passions journals over here.

US $13.57; available online from Amazon.

Coloured Pencil Jewellery

Circa 1988 and the highlight of my day was using the electric sharpener that was bolted to our teacher’s desk to whittle my HB into a Stuart Little sized pencil. Fast forward twenty years and not much has changed. The highlight of my day is still a pencil stub, but this time around it is Maria Christina Bellucci’s coloured pencil broaches and rings that are distracting me. I’d love to see what Maria Christina could do with the only heirloom our family has – my mum’s prized set of Derwents!
