6 of the Best Stationery Staples All Bloggers Need

If there’s something that’s always guaranteed to get me excited, it’s new stationary. Nothing feels better than opening up the first page of a fresh new notebook or using a beautiful pen for the first time. I know you know what I’m talking about.

  • Break your tasks up into smaller ones.

I’m still trying to find the perfect method - but a pretty pad makes it even easier to start.
