Because I'm a freak for stationery.
part 1: poketo, los angeles
I took the opportunity to drive to Little Tokyo in Downtown Los Angeles (fondly known by locals as "J-Town") and stopped by Poketo for a quick peruse of their wares. Like Poketo's Instagram suggests, the store is truly as beautiful and aesthetically pleasing as it seems online. Everything is perfectly placed, the employees are incredibly kind and ridiculously stylish (like seriously the nicest people on the planet. I didn't catch your names but wow please be my friends), and it's in the heart of Los Angeles. Could you ask for anything more?
Ironically, the day before I visited Poketo, I had a self-imposed "no stationery" purchasing restriction. Whoops.
part 2: personal planner
I was contacted by the lovely Personal Planner, who asked me if I wanted to try their custom planners for the school year! Unfortunately it starts in July (you can choose when it starts - I wanted something that would last the entire academic year!) but until then, I'll just be fawning over this planner! It's made out of thick, high quality paper, and manufactured in Sweden! I opted for a yellow cover and blue elastic closure and a monochromatic interior.
Part 3: The Giveaway
Personal Planner was incredibly kind to offer our lovely community a giveaway! One lucky individual will receive a gift card to Personal Planner to create their very own planner and receive an Explore More Sticker and pin! This giveaway is open internationally. If you decide that this giveaway isn't your style, you can still use the offer code S-EOUL-2018 for 15% your purchase at Personal Planner!
