the notebook

LOVE. If you follow me on Instagram you saw a picture of a black net-a-porter box this morning. Most of you thought it was a pair of killer heels or a stunning bag inside, but it was actually this amazing silk journal that I’ve been eying for a while. Ever since I was a kid I’ve had a certain obsession with pretty journals & notebooks. The funny thing is that I rarely end up writing anything in them in fear of ruining them with my horrible handwriting that I barely can decipher myself, but nonetheless I can’t seem to get enough of them! This one was no exception, the stunning print makes me think of a stormy, deep blue ocean and even if I never end up writing a single sentence in it, the bare sight of it makes me happy. Oh, and did I mention that it’s hand-stitched? Ok, enough rambling about my random stationery passion for now..

  1. Beautiful! I’m exactly the same, I could spend a fortune in stationary shops & yet I never use what I buy in fear of ruining it, I have awful ‘doctors’ handwriting too! The print really is stunning & oh, that Margiela pen, I’m so jealous!

  2. i am the exact same!! i can’t explain it.. i’ve just always collected pretty journals and lugged them around in my bag.. although i’m sure you treat yours a bit better than that:-) even if you never write in it it’s still worth it, it’s just beautiful.. love the pen too!

I feel so much better right now! ;)

  7. It’s a beautiful journal indeed. Look at this print, no wonder you felt in love with it.
    Write wisely =)

  8. Ha I’m exactly the same =) I’ve got a whole drawer full of those pretty notebooks – most of them still empty but I can’t seem to get enough of them… Stationary freaks for life ;-)

  9. Every word in your post sounds so familiar to me. I always keep buying pretty notebooks, too, and I never write anything in them! Often I turn them into inspiration books. Really great, too!
    Your notebook is so wonderful! I love its cover. The colour is so amazing! xx

  10. I too am a fan of notebooks but I actually write in them ;) so a small suggestion: on the 1st page write the day you got it, the place you bought it from (store, country or city) and city you were in when you received it. you can leave everything else in blank, but at least little things will keep your notebook collection traceable. You will love it! Enjoy!

  11. You should look up the story behind the Weston brand… It was on a tv programme in the UK as he was discovered during an open call for new brands at Liberty. He won’t be what you are expecting; tbh you’ll probably love you’re notebook all the more for it!

  12. Oh my god, I’ve got exactly the same as you. Ever since I was a kid I loved lovely notebooks to, but I never bought many because I didn’t write in them either. I never knew what to write in them and my awful handwriting would ruin them to.
