Do you journal?
I do, though not as often as I should/would like to. I’ve always found that journaling is such a great way to unwind after a stressful day, or articulate my thoughts after a wonderful one. There’s something about writing it all down that really helps me understand whats going on up there in that crazy brain of mine. Not to mention its a great way to feed my love of stationary! (I also have notebooks for sketching, scheduling, lists, business..you name it to silence my stationary addiction)
I was nearing the last few pages of my old journal and the excitement set in that I would get to go journal shopping! I’m very particular about what I want in a journal (it should lay flat, have lines, a ribbon page marker, etc.). When I saw Moleskine‘s new Le Petit Prince collection I was immediately smitten and knew that this would be my next journal.
I chose the ruled large version, which has a beautiful debossed image on the cover of the prince being pulled away by a fleet of birds and the quote “The essential is invisible for the eyes” in french. I just love that! The inside and back covers are decorated with stars and planets, and the back cover holds the quote “we write of eternal things” in french.. I don’t know which one I like better! There’s something about having a journal that you love that makes your writing all the more fun. As an added plus, a beautiful 3D paper cut out. Oh Moleskine, how I love thee!!
This collection is no longer available on Moleskine.com, but you can still find them on Amazon.
Here is a peek at my old journal.. she was leather, beautiful, and well loved. She even appeared in an episode of Lost! (well not my personal one obviously)
Sometimes I like to include sketches of my outfit that day in my journal. Its fun to look back and see what I wore that day, and also to remember cute outfits I may have forgotten about!
What do you look for in a journal? or What are you journaling in right now? I’d love to hear about it!
