Hello lovelies! I’m sitting writing this late at night, the rain is pouring outside and i have the fire on. The house is quiet and everyone is asleep and i’m finally able to get to a task i’ve had on my to do list for a few weeks – to share the Yokico good news! I first spotted news of this brand over on Insta a few weeks ago and then i saw they were based at Somerset Mall and i figured i’d get there at some stage. But then i heard they were opening at the Blue Route Mall ,which is nice and close to us and i headed there quick sticks!! I’m so glad we did – wow!
Yokico is a proudly local stationery company – with the most gorgeous stationery, gifting and collectables – for both boys and girls. If you’re a Mum you’ve probably noticed how girl centric stationery is, so i love that aside from the gorgeous rainbow and unicorn stuff there is stationery for boys too!
I took my girls and their cousin there in the school holidays and they went MAD! The collections of erasers will remind you of when you used to collect them (they smell EXACTLY the same), the space cases with compartments for all your goodies, notebooks, pens in every shape and form and the most gorgeous school bags and water bottles. Ava wasn’t quite understanding that she couldn’t have everything in the store which was a little embarrassing to say the least but we left with stars in our eyes and Yokico stationery in our paws. Ive been back a few times on my own to buy some goodies for myself (they say they’re aimed at primary school kids but i love so much of their stationery for me) and also for some parties Charley was invited too.
I love that Yokico products are locally designed and that they are bringing back so many nostalgic stationery elements and keeping things so modern and fresh too – they are a really fab find in my book! And if you can’t get to one of their three stores (in Somerset Mall, Table Bay Mall and Blue Route Mall), then guess what? They’re online too!!
Now for the even better news!
I have ONE R500 voucher for one of YOU
