If you’re an avid stationary collector or your New Year’s resolutions were all about staying on top of things, then you probably need to know about Swedish stationary brand Jo & Judy. They create beautiful notebooks and diaries that frequent swoon-worthy Instagram flat lays and add some pretty persuasion to any desk.
I’m such a magpie when it comes to stationary. When I want to get organised and stay focused, treating myself to a dreamy notebook instantly makes me feel like I’m a woman on a mission. It makes noting down those important dates and ticking off to-do lists that little bit more enjoyable and keeps me feeling motivated.
And can we just talk about the way everything is packaged! When the postman handed me a marble printed parcel I was already excited, but it was just the first layer to several delicately hand wrapped surprises. Inside was a blush pink box, adorned with ‘Design the life you love’ in rose gold – the perfect nod to a focused mind-set.
A layer of navy tissue paper is next, surrounding the contents. Then each pretty parcel comes neatly secured with ‘Jo & Judy’ stickers and decorated with copper paperclips. I receive a lot of beautifully wrapped gifts from brands, but this is definitely up there with my favourites. It was a real treat.
Inside were the most wonderful gifts, all in soft pinks with shimmering rose gold foil text. I’m constantly on the look out for ways to add a little charm to my office desk, and these 4 essentials are perfect.
Be inspired – Jo & Judy Pink Prints feature quotes that remind you that you’re capable of anything! They’re absolutely perfect for propping up on your desk, or framing and hanging on your wall.
Never forget – When all those ideas start forming, Jo & Judy have the prettiest Memo Pad to capture each one. The stack of notes sit in their own pink holder making them quick and easy to grab and scribble.
Keep it together – Whoever said paper clips had to be boring? Jo & Judy break all the stationary rules and create circular, square and triangle paperclips with a copper tone. Perfect for making your documents stand out from the crowd.
Always be ready – My absolute favourite Jo & Judy item is the coveted ‘She Designed the Life She Loved’ Workbook. It’s not just the beautiful blush pink and rose gold cover that makes it a desk essential, inside it’s doing a lot to make sure you’re set for the day. Aside from the diary and calendar, there are pages for to-do lists, projects, important contacts, budget tracker and even hints and tips to help you organise your life. This is definitely my new office companion!
