I’m back with a Currently list from the past week and some neat little things I’d love to share with you. So let’s get to it!
1. Hama beads in the shape of a dinosaur by Ada (that I keep forgetting to iron) and add to my massive collection of bead figures. <3 | 2. The Dot Grid Confidant notebook by Baron Fig. Review below! | 3. Call Me Maybe Squat Challenge on YouTube (it’s so good!). | 4. My Currently List mini book. | 5. VersaColor Pink pigment ink by Tsukineko. | 6. Lovely spring lips.
I just added a new favorite pink pigment ink to my shop. I’m so into pink at the moment! I’m even leaving my comfort zone of ‘my lips but better’ lipsticks and trying some pinks and an occasional orange. From left to right: Vanilla Creme Pie Butter Gloss by NYX (gorgeous, soft pink), Passionata Pink Lip Pen (super bold and long-lasting) by H&M and Papaya Punch Lip Pen (sheer like a tinted balm) by H&M.
Last year I discovered a Kickstarter project called Baron Fig – Sketchbook & Notebooks for thinkers. I don’t even remember how I came across it, but it just sounded really interesting and I decided to support it. So then, a month or two ago, I received my reward: 3 lovely Baron Fig notebooks. In the above photo you can see my Dot Grid Confidant that I use for very loose ideas and thoughts. I have a Blank Confidant I use for actual product sketches and other blog & business stuff.
The Baron Fig serves the same purpose as a Moleskine, basically. It’s stripped of anything unnecessary.
Moleskines feel more luxurious in a way – the pages in a Moleskine are smoother and the embossed leather cover makes it feel expensive. Baron Figs are bound in light grey cloth and have a woven yellow bookmark. They feel a bit more cheeky and modern-hipster than a Moleskine which is totally fine for me. I love having both options.
I hope you found this useful and interesting. I want to share more of what I love on my blog so if you’re into pens, notebooks, anything paper nerdy, really, than stick around. :)
Have a wonderful day, my friend. Thanks for stopping by!
