If you’re a regular visitor to my blog or follow my Instagram page then it’s no surprise how much of a stationery lover and addict I am, though it’s also clear I’m only attracted to super glam and super girly notebooks and pens. In this case, Kate Spade stationery is no doubt very much up my street, with it’s simple elegance, glamour and sophistication, Kate Spade pens and notebooks always have me salivating immediately. So of course I was extremely excited and happy to finally get my hands on these gorgeous Kate Spade spiral notebooks.
When I received my Kate Spade items, everything was neatly wrapped as you would expect from any bougie brand, so it felt a bit like opening birthday presents which only added to the allure of the notebooks. The larger notebook: Kate Spade New York mini polka dot large spiral has a very hard, sturdy front and back cover which makes it heavier than the smaller Kate Spade New York gold pavillion (medium) spiral notebook (this is approx. A5 size) which still has a cardboard cover but is not as solid as the large notebook.
The inside of the larger notebook: Kate Spade New York mini polka dot large spiral opens into a beautiful double spread of black polka dots on a cream page with a sleeve/pouchette on the right hand side to keep papers. This wonderful touch is replicated on the next page too, so there’s plenty of space to keep bits of paper organised in one place.
The smaller Kate Spade New York gold pavillion medium spiral notebook doesn’t have a sleeve/pouchette feature but it opens up into a beautiful bright pink interior with cream lined quality paper pages and golden spiral binding:
Kate Spade merchandise does come at a costly price in comparison to pretty much the same products you can purchase from regular high street retailers. However, the allure and quality of Kate Spade products can almost justify the need to splurge on such pretty items of stationery. I always feel that a pretty desk and pretty stationery inspires me to be more productive and take pride in my work which is why although I think £12 for the smaller Kate Spade New York gold pavillion medium spiral notebook and £16 for the larger Kate Spade New York mono polka dot spiral notebook may be expensive but at the same time totally worth it to brighten up your work days and be the envy of your work/study colleagues in the office or at college or university!
I’ve been using my Kate Spade notebooks for almost a month now and I love the hard back and sturdiness of the larger Kate Spade New York mono polka dot notebook in addition to the double sleeve/pouchette feature inside which helps me keeps my pieces of paper organised which is totally handy for my admin as a teacher.
I also love the lightweightness of the smaller Kate Spade New York gold pavillion medium spiral notebook which I use to jot down lesson notes/class profiles especially during this busy exam period. The bright gold polka dots also brightens up desk and is a pleasure to carry as arm candy to my daily meetings – viva glam teacher!
