Despite desperately wanting a FRANKIE MAGAZINE DAILY JOURNAL for my diary/planner this year, I was sadly too late in picking one up before it had sold out so decided to see what else was out there. Last year I used my trusty Filofax, but although being pocket size it was still too bulky and ended being an at-home planner – defeating much of the point I needed a diary for! Despite coming across some really adorable illustrated ones from Ebay (see pictured above), I settled on the more practical option of my first ever MOLESKINE..
And I love it!
It’s an limited edition PEANUTS POCKET SIZED, with week to view, but what I especially love about it, other than the beautiful nostalgia of it simply being PEANUTS (aww), was that it had the week to view on one page, and the other was a blank lined page to fill in with your notes for that week! This appealed ridiculously to me because I am a big note/list writer and having that extra space to quickly jot things down on-the-go and plan really helps keep my mind in check. I’ve only had it three days (took a while to arrive) and I’ve already crammed my first weeks use with essential (to me) notes and info, etc (these pics were taken on day one; you should see it now!).
But the deal closer for me was the secret pocket.. Despite it being SO slimline and portable – an actual pocket sized planner that is usable – it has a pocket attached to the back to keep whatever bits you want!
It comes with its own set of stickers (can someone please explain how I’m meant to use these? I can imagine myself pointlessly saving them as they’re so cute), but I’ve also stashed a post-it insert (that I had with my Filofax), a couple of business cards and some stamps. So handy!
I definitely have my heart set on picking up a Frankie mag journal for next year.. But you know, I am pretty much loving my Moleskine experience thus far so things could change!
