My Kikki.K planner has been looking a bit sad lately so I brought it upon myself to give it a makeover and search for some cute stickers and sticky notes to fill its pages.
Kikki K is is one of the few place where I live that sells quality cute stationary for grown ups so I headed there first. I was only planning to purchase a 2016 planner refill but ended up getting caught by the planner dashboard kit. I really only wanted the ruler and zipper pouch in the pack but then realised I actually don’t even have a dashboard in my planner currently so went ahead and bought it. Planner makeover to come!

I had also been seeing heaps of cute post it notes on Instagram, particularly ones of macarons (which I LOVE to make) so I had to track those down. I ended up going with an Etsy store based in Singapore called Bobby. Tin which was really cheap and my order arrived within a week. They even added in some adorable penguin sticky notes to my order for free!
If you live in New Zealand and prefer to buy your supplies in store rather than online, I have found that emporium style stores are the cheapest, however not always the best quality. Spotlight is EXTREMELY over priced (thanks to all the non-competition out there) but if the Warehouse stationery has a comparable product to what you are looking for then it will usually always be cheaper. For example embossing powder is $15 at Spotlight and $10 at Warehouse stationery, ink pads cost about $25 at spotlight but are $15 at Warehouse stationary.
Then there is trusty old K Mart which is always has amazing stuff for ridiculously cheap prices! Their range of craft supplies is pretty decent. All of these mini glitters only cost $4 so head there if you are looking to try out a bunch of different glitter colours but can’t commit to buying a large expensive tubes.
