My endless pursuit for memory keeping has led me into the lines of diaries, scrapbooking and bullet journaling which I would only pay attention to once I’m in the mood or if I have a shiny new notebook. Thankfully, 2016 gave me so much inspiration that pushed me to include this in my daily routine.
3 years later, my Leuchtturm1917 finally has to retire and my hunt for a replacement has begun and ended too soon. But before I talk about literally a new leaf, let me quickly share my love and appreciation for my first ever legit bujo.
I say legit cause I’ve only ever been a good starter but never really done anything or finished a whole journal/planner/diary until this one. Before I lose track, here are some of the things I love about the A5 Leuchtturm1917:
- Numbered pages and easy indexing
- Back pocket for all the bits and pieces
- Minimalist design
- Excellent paper quality
- Option between lined, grid or dotted
- Easy buy through Amazon Prime
- Lasted me for 3 years
Although I really loved everything about it, I wanted to make my life a tad easier and explore something pre-filled with weekly/monthly calendars and space for random musings. I originally wanted Winnie Wong’s The Everyday journal but I’m still having troubles sourcing it so I had to find something similar locally that would satisfy my obsession with listing, writing and personalisation. Luckily, thanks to the internet and random related advertisements I found my next one from Papier!
I’ve geared off my normal black and gray plain hues only and chose a bit of a bold design which I felt that sort of represents me (?). Of course, the personalised title and initials won me over. I can’t wait to spend the next 52 weeks with this one and surely, you’ll hear from me again soon!
