Everyone has something they love to geek out over. My Obsession with Korean stationary started when I was working in Covent Garden and walked past Artbox to get to my lunch. I’m not a fan of a lot of the heavily anime themed style but a planner caught my eye and from then on I’d be in there every pay day!
Geez..This is what happens when you’re really fussy about stationary and design and have no life. It’s March and I’ve only just ordered my 2015 planner. If I get a hint that a shop is stocking some kind of diary, then I’ve already sniffed it out and investigated. I’ve also scoured the internet, looked on Pinterest. It just has to be perfect! I’ve come to the conclusion that Korea (South of course) is where it’s at when it comes to planners. They know exactly what I want. Seven days on one page is all well and good but I need the whole month across 2 pages damn it.
Some people have a man checklist, I have a planner checklist. These are my conditions –
- must show the month across two pages
- must be bendy
- must be high quality paper
- contemporary, clean and simple design
Minibus is a brand that aims to please and this planner does exactly that.
What’s that you say? 8 fresh inspiring colours to choose from! A plastic cover so no moisture can ruin your planning fun! A little pocket thingy to store away your loose bits?
The problem lies in trying to narrow it down to just one colour…pink..no…yellow…wait!…umm – Just give me all of em!
Check out these other cool bits I’ve found while on the never ending hunt. I swear Frodo struggled to Mordor, retrieved that ring and got back quicker than this diary drama.
And then comes the stickers..
Psst…Word has it that Iconic Design stickers are the coolest stickers on the block. Sooo pretty! I can’t cope.
What are your geeky pastimes? I will be waiting at the door for my journal to arrive.
