Keep on Top of Your Workload with These Beautiful Notebooks

As busy on-the-go career driven females, we are only too aware of how important it is to ensure our organisation is on form. Trying to manage your day job, side hustle, social life, relationship and pet (does our office goldfish count?) can sometimes feel overwhelming! We’re a generation of doers, we want it all and we want it now. We test ourselves, we challenge ourselves and we reap the rewards. Life in the city is oh so exciting, but it can sometimes feel as though you’re constantly chasing your tail.

This is where it’s important to organise your schedule, plan ahead, and keep a trusty notebook in your handbag to jot down all the details you’ll probably forget on the tube journey home. Whilst your phone is one handy little device, we will never give up a traditional paper and pen when it comes to scribbling down our thoughts, to-do lists and memos. There’s a certain charm about putting pen to paper and who doesn’t love a good doodle?

This season our new handbag must-have is a beautifully designed notebook from premium stationery line, Perfectly Penned. This small, British, family run business produce a chic range of notebooks and journals that knock your traditional Pukka pad out of the water. Ideal for young professionals, bloggers, bullet journal enthusiasts and students. Choose from a range of stunning colours and enjoy a thick, quality 120 gsm, FSC certified paper in either a lined or dotted design. The paper used in the notebooks is sustainably sourced, making these journals an environmentally friendly choice.

Not only do Perfectly Penned shine a focus on sustainability, all notebook covers are made with fully synthetic vegan friendly materials, meaning your plant-based pals won’t have to miss out on these gorgeous notebooks. Our vegan features editor was only too happy with this news!
