AliExpress Stationery Haul

I’m in quite a few bullet journal groups on Facebook and AliExpress is a favourite store across them all.  These excited recommendations are generally focused on products like washi tape and stickers, but there are countless subcategories of budget-friendly items available from their sellers! For this AliExpress haul, though, I’ll be sticking to what I know, which is mostly bullet journal supplies.

I’ve quite literally had this post in my drafts for months and haven’t had the right time to share it. . . but better late than never, right?

I’m including both the exact product I ordered and, when I can find one, a comparable one on Amazon (with Prime shipping unless otherwise noted!).

My review:  After taking an art history class as part of my public history minor in college and taking a modern art class this summer, I’ve really developed what was previously a passing interest in art. This washi tape was perfect for that! This round, I ordered rolls featuring works by Monet (my all-time favourite), Klimt, and Matisse.

Would I buy again? Yep

My review: My succulent was brutally murdered in the move from my apartment at school (I know. Rest in peace, little guy), so this washi was my main source of greenery for a while this summer. It’s not quite the same as having a real plant friend, but it was a decent substitute!

Would I buy again? Yes!

Nevertheless, I fell in love with this washi the moment I saw it. Despite my fears, there’s just something about the artistic rendering of it that’s so calming!

Would I buy again? Yep

Would I buy again? Yes!

London Stickers

On AliExpress: Creative London Vacation Stickers Diary Sticker Scrapbook Decoration PVC Stationery Stickers, $1.26

My review: In case you haven’t caught on, I really, really miss living in the UK.  London holds a special place in my heart, so these stickers were an extra special purchase! I’m thinking of creating a “Things I Miss about the UK” spread specifically to use these and some of my other travel-related items. . . .

Would I buy again? Of course!

On Amazon: BleuMoo Phase Of The Moon Planet Star Calendar Decoration Stickers DIY Hand Craft Planner Scrapbook Label Diary Stickers, $3.35 (not available with Prime shipping)

My review: Back on the space theme, I’d seen these stickers pop up a few dozen times in various bullet journalling groups and AliExpress hauls. They were absolutely perfect for a moon phases spread!

 Would I buy again? Yes!

My review: If you can’t tell, I love the galaxy aesthetic. If you’re a return visitor to the blog, you likely know how much I love cats (Fitz especially! He’d be very angry if I didn’t specify). These stickers combine the two beautifully!

Would I buy again? Most definitely!
