Traveling Transcripts

Did I mention that I’m off to Thailand in September with my parents?

Well I am, and I’m crazy-excited about it! When I travel, I’m an obsessive journaler (Is that even a word? Now it is). I write down everything and collect every ticket stub/brochure/pamphlet/flyer/postcard that falls into my line of sight and in it goes. I always travel with my stick of glue and pair of scissors, so I can journal on the go. It’s often a really great way to pass the time while you’re waiting in an airport or on a long journey.

In Typo on Tuesday night I found this beautiful little travel diary, with the words

Let’s find someplace beautiful and get lost.

What a dream! And for only R40, what a bargain too!

Typo Temptations

The very first Typo store in Cape Town has officially opened in Canal Walk shopping centre. For those of you who don’t know, it’s basically a stationary shop on speed.

It’s part of the same brand as Cotton On, and stocks some of the most beautiful decor and lifestyle bits, bobs and gadgets that a girl could dream of.

Forever New, Cotton On and now Typo…are we seeing a trend of Australian awesomeness here? It seems like I’ll have to head down under to see what else those Aussies have up their sleeves.

Here’s a few of the odds and ends that I bought, and I’ll be sharing more detailed posts about the three journals that I purchased over the next few days.
