I don’t want to push you into thinking about it too soon, but that day is not too far away and there is one thing about going back to school that can be the most enjoyable. That is… new stationary! Deep down I know that a little part of you gets excited to buy all new stationary for your new year at school, there is something about buying new stationary that makes everyone feel like they are about to have a more focused year and accomplish anything the new academic year brings. I am going to tell you where to buy the cutest back to school stationary in London.

Paperchase is another stationary shop that is very pricey, but we absolutely love. They have cute stationary essentials and matching items which you will die for.
