Last time I went back home for Christmas, I spent some time in the Stansted airport where I discovered a cool shop that I'm happy to show you. I'm talking about Hema, a retail organization with many stores in Europe and an online shop. It only has its own-brand products which look lovely: pastel colours and minimal style, a perfect mix. The fresh atmosphere stopped me on my way into the airport and I suddenly felt the necessity to buy at least a notebook and a pen (don't ask me why, but I always feel that I need to use five different notebooks at the same time; plus other ten to be kept new at home, just in case... I'm insane!). By the way, I am really using it.

They sell about everything: stationery, home fittings, decorations, apparel, food (lots of super sweet stuff and biscuits), gardening, and much more. They have a strong brand identity and, last but not least, they pride themselves on being socially responsible and sustainable; which is never bad.

If you want to have a look at their website just click here!
