Luxury Living with Rooi - Kate Spade Stationary

One thing I think most of us look forward to at the end of a year is choosing a new diary and making an attempt to organise our lives a bit more as we move into the new year. Well this year I'm doing it in some major style, with these beautiful Kate Spade pieces from luxury living experts Rooi

Rooi personally source every product, asking themselves three questions before something makes the cut ... 

Does it say something? 
Does it delight the senses?
Does it make us happy?

If an item gets three yes's, it finds itself in stock at Rooi.com. This is actually the way I wish I could live my life, so I found this mantra quite inspirational before I even had a browse of the store, but oh my life, you guys need to go have a nose through it! There are some beautiful things up for grabs. 

Anyhoo, back to my new pretty things! I chose the Kate Spade Large 17 Month Black Stripe Agenda (£31.95) and the Kate Spade Leopard Spiral Notebook (£11.95) and boy are they beautiful.

First off, I ADORE the fact that I could choose this pattern combination. Monochrome stripes and leopard print have been my fave off the wall pattern combo in both fashion and interior design since forever, you'd be surprised how stylish they can look together despite the obvious clash. 

The diary itself is VERY satisfying. It's a large, weighty spiral bound hardback book housing a selection of monthly and weekly spreads, note pages, laminated dividers and even a couple of plastic pockets. Each month begins with an inspirational, fun 'to do' list of themed activities, and there's tons of room for writing all your important day to day notes. I'm not pulling your leg here, this diary is so beautiful it makes me want to be a better person. I feel like it wants a more successful career and a stylish wardrobe for me, as I write my name in the 'This agenda belongs to ...' box. Everytime I open it, it whispers to me that 2017 is our year . . . As Mariah said, we belong together.

The notebook is the perfect accompaniment to the agenda. It's really just a simple 112 lines page notebook for taking down thoughts and doodles of the day, but it's the hardback cover that had me at hello. T will understand me when I say that the pattern is THE perfect leopard print. Tis a rare thing to find and when you do, you want it replicated in everything you own. This thing is prettier than my entire face. And it's made of paper.

When Rooi chose these two pieces they got it so right.

Does it say something? 
YES. They tell me that 2017 will be my best year yet, and I believe them!

Does it delight the senses?
When I look at them my pupils dilate, and yes, I may have sniffed them once or twice.

Does it make us happy?
Insanely. This love is serious.

My only issue is that I now want more. The note card sets make me want to be a more attentive far away friend, the sticky note sets produce a sudden need to furiously take the best phone messages of my life, and the bits and bobs holder makes me want to organise tiny things into tiny spaces! I love you Kate, be my friend?

For anyone thinking of indulging I highly recommend making a selection from the Kate Spade range at Rooi. Their delivery was free and super fast, within days of placing the order, and if you sign up to the newsletter you can get 10% off too - huzzah!

Thanks to Rooi for this new addiction.
