Collins Fashion Notebooks

Hiya Lovelies!

Hope you're all well?

I usually draft my posts in Blogger however I also carry a Notebook with me just in case I get any ideas during the day or suddenly get a spark of inspiration while out. Notebooks are perfect for scribbling down all my imaginative creative plans and writing down any important events and dates that I may have.

I have a passion for Fashion and love to style outfits, it's always fun to add my own personal touch. Notebooks are great for planning different style ideas as well as correlating different pieces together. I also keep one on my bedside table which is great for jotting down anything that pops into my head like one of those amazing dreams where I invent something spectacular... Hmmm maybe one day Sophie!

 Collins have such an adorable collection of Diaries, Calendars, Organisers and Notebooks.

The Legacy Pink Soft Touch Notebook (Size A5) has the highest quality ivory paper inside, with 240 ruled pages and a handy Document storage pocket. I can't get over how amazingly soft this Notebook feels, comes in five other colours.

Then there's the Raindrops Notebook which is available in two sizes, A5 which consists of 192 pages and A6 which has 384 pages. I am totally in love, super cute! They have a number of other designs including Daisies, Butterflies, Syren and Simplicity. Remember to take advantage of their 3 for 2 offer!
