Helloooo! Even before I started blogging I was a huge fan of stationery, looking at it, shopping for it and buying it. A couple of years ago I discovered kikki.K, a brand founded by self confessed stationery lover Kristina Karlsson. kikki.K aims to follow the Swedish design principles of form and function whilst providing stationery, gifts and organisation solutions. Kristina believes being organised in style helps you achieve a sense of well-being which improves quality of life.
kikki.K have recently opened a pop up store in London as well as announcing the opening of a permanent store on James Street. kikki.K inspires creativity; whether you love capturing and sharing special moments, creating an inspiring home or workspace or fulfilling your love of pen and paper.
I have purchased a number of things from kikki.K and had items gifted to me over the past couple of years. kikki.K oozes quality, style and sophistication and is easily one of my favourite brands! kikki.K regularly come out with new collections, which is perfect if you like to mix and match your stationery. Each collection reflects a different personality.
Today I will be giving you a rundown on the items I own and sharing my love for the brand. Links will be provided to all products available on kikki-k.com.
1. Page Markers | Cute collection – RRP: $4.90
These page markers were my first ever kikki.K purchase. They make handy bookmarks, page markers for studying and you could even try using them as fridge magnets as they are magnetic.
2. Mini Daily Planner Pad | Cute collection – RRP: $9.90
If you have a busy day planned or an event coming up you need to plan for these pads are really helpful. They help you break down what you need to prioritise, make sure you keep your fluids up with a water tracker and include a space to write down a daily treat, we all need a bit of ‘me time’.
3. Printed Notepad | Cute collection – RRP: $16.90
Firstly, I love the thickness and quality of this paper. Each kikki.K notepad comes with 120 pages and features blank, ruled, and lined paper allowing you to choose whichever you need. The designs on this notepad include fruit, weather and animals.
4. Everyday Gel Pen | Live Bright collection – RRP: $4.90
I love the array of different designs these gel pens come in. The Live Bright collection is no longer available but when it was out the pink, lilac and gold tones were right up my street! I liked the simplicity of this design and how ‘Live Bright’ also acts as a positive affirmation.
What’s even better about kikki.K’s gel pens is that they are refillable. I purchased a pack of refills when I made an online order last year and I actually haven’t even finished the original ink in my gel pen yet. I really like the ink, it dries quickly and doesn’t smudge.
I received this as a present from my brother about six months ago and it’s genius lies in it’s simplicity. I am very much a routine person and like habit. If I want to cut out chocolate and potato chips for example, I use this to see how many days in a week I can go without them.
This is another present from my brother but I haven’t used this journal yet. I currently record my food and exercise in one of Typo’s A5 spinout notebooks and once I’ve reached the end of that I’ll look at giving this journal a go.
I purchased this journal back in July and it is the most beautiful colour. The gold lettering also makes it look more expensive than it is. My aim for this journal is to write in it every day before I go to bed as a way to unwind and get rid of the day’s thoughts. I started off really well but writing in it daily has fallen by the wayside. I need to get back into it as it’s nice to have an empty mind and leave the day behind before going to bed.
If you get the chance to visit a kikki.K shop don’t pass up the opportunity! Everything is incredibly beautiful and you won’t regret it. If there’s not a store near you, you can always take a look at their website. kikki.K ship internationally and the blog part of the site offers information about the brand and shows you how to use their products.
