Lovely reader Holly sent us a Life in Stationery recently. She and I were at uni together and she’s a fellow night owl – so thought her stationery story was appropriate for another late-night Monday post 🙂 ~ Carla

First things first, what’s your name?


What’s the best thing you’ve ever received in the post?

A birthday present

What’s your current favourite stationery item?

My beautiful wooden fountain pen with pink sparkly ink 🙂

Are you a diary writer?

No – I only use a planner to plan future events.

And are you a list maker?


Favourite ink colour?

I have to use pink for my job. I’d like to find a pink ink that’s scented and quick drying.

Your favourite place to write?

At a nice big clean desk.

Last thing you posted?

By mail? I can’t remember! Probably a wedding RSVP a long time ago.

Holly is a school teacher who would love to be an author. A prolific acquirer of pens and notebooks, who needs to make more time to write her as yet non-existent novel! We think pink ink for work is a completely brilliant idea (though Annastasia would, naturally, prefer green), and would love to know if any of you have come across any scented fountain pen ink!
