As a stationery lover, I admit I have a 'slight' obsession (hahaha) with buying new stationery and planner kits and accessories, so this post as part of the 'Planner Girls Collective' has me excited. Join me as I share my favourite online and high street planner shops.
1. MRS BRIMBLES / THE BRIMBLES BOX
I first found my love for planning at Mrs Brimbles Happy Place group on facebook and promptly signed up for the Brimbles Box (monthly planner, stationery and journaling kit). Anna Brim has gorgeous kits, great for journaling and planner-aholics alike. I love that they now have scrapbook papers for creating journal covers, dashboards and journaling cards. I also like the variety of the kits. Some months have ephemera or cling stamps, whilst others are more planner focused with extra stickers or planner clips. She also has great stock in her online shop - a haven for stationery, planner and scrapbook lovers.

2. HAZY DAYS UK
I love Kelly's stickers and have recently had the pleasure of becoming a Design Team Member, so exciting. I bought a gorgeous Book Lovers set from Kelly and am in awe of how good her stickers are (amazing quality and variety). I am also in the love with the princess set I was sent as part of the DT package. The new Boho and Sailor range are next on my list to sample. Be sure to check out the shop below and join the facebook group here for future updates and chat.

3. UGLY BUG PLANS (formerly Ugly Bug Does)
I love Michelle's shop, now home of the amazing Uglydori travelers notebooks. I've been a member of her facebook The Ugly Bug(gers) for quite a while now and it is such a fun place, with lovely people. I have bought a few of her Monthly kits, including a superhero set and an art journaling monthly kit. I also adore my Uglydori planner, which you can check out here.

4. LITTLE RAINBOW MOON
Jo has a gorgeous shop on Etsy and a great facebook group (Over the Rainbow). I have bought quite a few bits from Jo's shops, including some gorgeous washi and a brilliant teacher planner sticker set for work. I was also fortunate enough to win a fantastic instagram prize of £50 of shop credit, so got to sample her monthly kits and gorgeous hand painted watercolour stickers and ephemera.

5. TRAVELERS TIMES & LYRA and CO
My two favourite go to shops for journals are Travelers Times and Lyra & Co (both on Etsy). I got my first tn from Lyra and Co, a gorgeous extra wide hand made fabric travelers notebook. I use travelers Times for buying my notebooks, the paper is great quality, so glossy and perfect for gel and fountain pens. They also so cheap (despite the great quality) and can be ordered in blank, lined, dot or grid (my top choice). They also do a variety of inserts such as pre-printed diaries, monthly and lists.

FAVOURITE HIGH STREET STATIONERY SHOPS:
I have several go to planner and journaling shops on the high street. I love a good mooch around The Range (although my purse doesn't seem to like it). Home Bargains and B&M have some great buys for stationery including rose gold goodies (faints). Poundshops, Lidl and Aldi all often have great stationery bargains on a seasonal basis. My all time favourite high street shop though is Wilkos (can you tell I love a bargain) I love that I can get all my art goodies, paint, watercolour paper and stickers, pens and notebooks all in one place for a great price. I must admit I have never been to Paperchase or Kikki K, so I'm sure they would be up there if I had.
I also buy a lot of planner and art goodies from Amazon for my art/journaling and from AliExpress for extremely cheap washi tape and stickers (if you are prepared to wait). I don't have an Hobbycraft near to me, so I often order online from there, they do great sketchbooks. Then of course there's The Works... ok I will stop now.
If you haven't visited any of the shops I've mentioned be sure to check them out and have a read of the other posts in the Planner Girls Collective series by popping over the the other great bloggers pages. Let me know of any gems I may have missed in the comments below.
