Stylish Stationery with Kate Spade & Rooi

Yes, you aren't seeing things. I've actually written a blog post at long last. Today's blog post is all about stationery, something I'm guilty of owning far too much. It's good to be organised though, right? You can never have too many notebooks + notepads when they're as pretty as the selection Rooi kindly sent over featuring blogger favourite Kate Spade. If you haven't heard of Rooi, they're basically home to some of the best, cotton bed linens, home interior brands and luxurious fabrics & stationery. In recent years Kate Spade has become a little easier for those of us in the UK to access however Rooi, have some of the best/biggest selection apart from going to Kate Spade directly. Since being introduced to Rooi my wish-list has grown extensively - Heck I even want the Kate Spade Umbrellas.

The first item I unwrapped from Rooi was this Birch Way Spiral Notebook. With the beautiful owl design you can bet Kate Spade stationery keeps you looking stylish whilst you go about organising your day - I'm yet to come across a pattern I don't love. The notebook itself has an incredibly sturdy cover, with the spiral hidden inside & not to forget the rounded edges. The harder cover makes it easy to write without having a table/desk top to rest on as well as the paper being some of the thickest I've seen in a notebook. The 112 sheets will be sure to last a while, with this being the notebook I've chosen to write down anything that needs to be noted to my doctor.

Kate Spade Travel Bag Bits & Baubles* // £11.95 // HERE
I absolutely love this next item Rooi kindly sent over. Kate Spade actually have various canvas bags ranging from shoes, to every day essentials just like this travel size bag. If you're anything like myself then your handbag is home to all sorts. Over the years I've since made myself keep it organised, little bags like the Bits & Baubles design are perfect for makeup, phone, jewellery, iPhone cables - when charging on the go & even our sanitary products - nothing worse than having a tampon fly out your bag. If you're off on holiday, this is one product that will come in handy.
Kate Spade Stationery Review
Kate Spade Leaves Notepad* // £8.95 // HERE
The last of the three items, is the stunning Leaves Notepad - this notepad features both lined and plain sheets that are easily torn out. This notepad is perfect for making to-do lists OR writing your latest shopping list...or perhaps the perfect instagram flat-lay piece!? The paper quality again, is superb - something that makes it worth while spending a little more when you know your pens won't bleed through the paper & I like having the option of both plain and lined - we all need a little plain paper for doodling at times. With 125 sheets, Kate Spade have you covered for months.

How do you stay organised? Do you prefer to write down your appointments or are you all for tech? If you're anything like myself then you'll be in favour of the Kate Spade Stationery Range - made easily accessible by Rooi for those of us in the UK. Lucy xx

The Ultimate Triple Chocolate Cookie // Lucyy Writes

It's been a while hasn't it!? As my first post in quite some time I decided to share the cookies that caused quite the storm on my Instagram recently. Back in December I actually made them for the first time, along with many recipes - I always go a little crazy Christmas week and split the goodies across family friends. After seeing so many people rave about the Tanya Burr Cookie Recipe (linked below) I decided to have a go myself to see what the fuss was about - switching up the chocolate bars to my personal favourites and boy were they good. Needing a little chocolate fix - with my consistent period drama/issues there's nothing better than a fresh soft, chocolate cookie full of gooey chocolate - especially when it contains milk - with added smarties, white and dark. These really are the best cookies I've made to date.

Recipe for The Ultimate Triple Chocolate Cookies:
200g Butter
300g Caster Sugar
1 Large Egg
275g Self Raising Flour
75g Cocoa Powder
A Splash of Milk (depending on how wet/dry your mixture turns out)
1 Large Bar of White Aero (white bubbles, milk chocolate outer)
1 Large Bar of Smarties Chocolate (seriously good!)
1 100g Bar of Dark Chocolate

Step One:
Set your oven to 180C & prepare 2-3 baking trays with baking parchment.
Step Two:
Next, Cream together your butter and sugar before adding in your egg.
Step Three:
Stir in all your dry ingredients, add the splash of milk if your mixture is looking dry.
Step Four:
Break up all your chocolate and add to the mix, either mix with your hands OR if you prefer to not get so messy a spoon is completely fine.
Step Five: 
Then depending on how big you want your cookies, break off balls of dough and place on your trays. I followed Tanya's suggestion and made around 10 the first time, 12 the next. If doing this you'll find 11-12 minutes in the oven gives you the perfect cookie.

They may not look cooked but within 30 minutes of cooling you'll have the best, soft cookies full to the brim of chocolate. What would you guys like to see on LW? - that's if commenting is still a thing!? :P Lucy x
