Coming at you again today with yet another stationary lust induced purchase! What can I say? I have a problem and  I quite frankly have no shame what so ever in admitting it. I was completely unaware that I would find pencil perfection, yet alone in the depths of my Instagram feed but I really did when someone posted about these beauties and I clicked the link and followed the account instantly. 

Dottie Rocks is an Etsy store that I have fallen head over heels in love with. After following the them on Instagram for a few weeks and seeing all the beautiful items they have available I knew it wouldn't be long before I placed an order and a few days ago I finally caved. I decided to pick up the "Paris Is Always a Good Idea" set of 4 pencils as since getting my new iPhone I have been obsessed with anything white and gold and have had a penchant for Paris my entire life. 

A few days after I placed the order a beautifully packaged parcel turned up through my letter box and I was throughly pleased with the product I received. The little sleeve that the pencils come in is genius and the quality of the pencils themselves is on point but lets not pretend that I didn't solely buy these based on the design itself. I don't know about you but when I was a child I used to have this huge pencil case full of pens and pencils all with my name engraved on them so that nobody stole them and I seriously felt like the absolute mutts nuts with them at school and now I get to sit here at my desk with my beautiful Paris pencils and relieve my youth and passion for pencils.  


A part of me finds its hilarious that I have dedicated an entire post to pencils but this post is really all about the brand behind them. They have so many great variations of these pencils available as well as some gorgeous prints that may well be on wish-list already.
