Our Story! 

Welcome to The Realistic Lifestyle! I'm Aimee founder, owner, and curator here at The Realistic Lifestyle. 

Based in Aberdeen Scotland, The Realistic Lifestyle is an independent online store with a carefully crafted selection of luxury stationery brands & a beautiful collection of candle brands. 

The Realistic Lifestyle was born out of my love for stationery & creating a cosy space to be creative in. As a confessed home bird filling my home with scented candles brings me so much joy. 

As a kid, my favourite Saturday activity was heading to the shops to pick out a magazine, sweetie & a new notebook. I've carried that tradition into adulthood except now I've swapped the sweeties for coffee, but the thrill of starting a new notebook will never grow old. 

As a writer & business owner, I have always loved picking out a new notebook to keep everything close to hand. A little bit of an old soul I still find joy in putting pen to paper rather than typing away on a computer screen. 


So if like me you smell every candle you come across or feel the page quality of every notebook you buy. If you like to be as organised in life as Monica Gellar ( even if we do all have a secret Monica closet.. it's okay we won't tell)


Then The Realistic Lifestyle will have something for you!   

A Little More About Aimee 

I love nothing more than heading out to a coffee shop to curb my Lorelai Gilmore level coffee addiction. Settling in for a night of Friends re-runs & a few episodes of Outlander. You'll usually find me with a book in hand - my reading habits measure up to Rory Gilmore's. Where can I sign up to be a Gilmore Girl?
