One of my favourite things about New Year is getting a new diary, and although I made the mistake of buying an 18-month planner last summer, I’ve still managed to acquire an excessive collection of pretty notebooks. New year, new notebook and all that jazz.
I mean, bags are cool, shoes are pretty useful too, but notebooks are what it’s really all about. And I am obsessed (I mean *obsessed*). So obsessed that I not only insist on taking a notebook everywhere I go (hence I will never be a small-bag girl) but also insist on taking my last finished notebook everywhere too, just in case I need to refer back to a previous list or note (hence why I will always, in fact, be a pretty big-bag girl).
Last summer we went out on dinghy style boats while in Spain, and being sans notebook (or even a phone), rendered me pretty panicked. That day I vowed to buy one of those scuba pencil notepad sets for emergencies, (which I have not done, I’m not that weird).
Sure pukka pads are reliable, but I believe notebooks should be as exciting as the lists that will fill them (i.e. grocery lists, to do lists, shopping lists, chore lists, etc, etc).
So here is a collection of the most beautiful notebooks I’ve found (and in many cases purchased). Enjoy!
Papier Palm Leaves Lined Notebook – £12.99
Ohh Deer Black Fleck Daily Journal – £4 (from £16!)
P.S. mine are almost entirely full of lists of clothes I want to buy and nothing more useful/meaningful/deep.
