From left to right starting with the first row:
1 – Filigree Journals from Gaelsong – Slightly more expensive than most of the notebooks on this list but I couldn’t resist including them. They’re just so beautiful and elegant.
2 – OWL Journal from susie ghahremani – I love this hand painted journal that continues inside the journal, making it cute inside and out.
3 – Leather rose notebook from GILDBookbinders – The most expensive notebook on this list, it is a gorgeous leather bound book which is thick and has a beautiful rose on the front. There’s several different colours and designs, but the gold on green is my favourite. It’s so stunning.
4 – Desk Pad from Marks and Spencers – This is very different to everything else here, and while it isn’t my usual style, I like the functionality of it. Sometimes just a normal notebook isn’t up to the job, and having multiple post-it notes or lists all over the place can get a bit messy!
5 – Star Wars Moleskin from Wordery – These came out with the new film last year and I love the simple design of them. Often I find Star Wars merchandise is very flashy and even a bit OTT, especially for notebooks. That’s great for kids, but if you’re looking for something a bit more mature or arty then these Moleskins are right on the money.
6 – Floral Rose Pattern & Butterfly Canvas from Amazon – This is my typical style notebook. I’m not really a girly girl but I am always attracted to floral patterns and especially butterflies. I seriously could just do a whole one of these on notebooks with butterflies.
7 – Teal Lace Embossed Notebook from W H Smith – It’s simple, it’s cheap and yet so effective. I’m not too keen on the black strap, white would have gone better in my opinion.
8 – Wreck this journal Everywhere from Waterstones – I’ve seen a few people doing instagram challenges like this, in which every day they do something new to/on a blank page in a notebook. I don’t know whether it started as a thing online and then someone marketed it or vice versa. Maybe it’s just a marketing gimmick, but if you’re interested in doing something like this then it’s a place to start.
