a new year, a new journal: courtesy of my sister and christmas!

I'm nearing the end of my current journal now and it was almost like my sister knew this. For Christmas, she got me the cutest journal ever and if you want the pictorial proof, here it is:


The journal is adorable: it has a clothbound mint fabric cover and at the front is a beautiful illustration of two foxes surrounding the letter 'A'. Foxes are a big thing in my family so that makes the gift extra special. At the spine, there is a gold-embossed 'A'. 


The page edges are a lovely coral pink colour which completely clashes and compliments the mint-green cover at the same time. The ribbon is a lovely cream colour too.


This is an absolutely beautiful journal and I can't wait to get stuck into it. She bought it from Anthropologie and I haven't linked to it because it's a little bit cringeworthy to look up how much someone spent on a gift. If you're struggling to find a present for someone who loves stationery, does a fair bit of journaling and also loves pretty things, a journal like this may well be the thing you're looking for! And if you're not looking for a present for someone else, there's no shame in buying something as pretty as this for yourself too :)

  1. This is beautiful! I saw this at Anthropologie the other day and thought it was absolutely beautiful. I have been trying to find another journal since I filled mine up, and I'll have to give this one a look!

  3. It's such a gorgeous present! So nice of your sister of giving this thoughtful gift. I was given a beautiful journal from Paperblanks as a birthday gift, and I didn't know about Anthropologie but I'm definitely checking it out! Cheers!! xxx
