2012 diary

Just showing off this red Moleskine diary I nabbed for cheap at Glebe Markets last week. I generally wait until the new year starts before I buy a diary, because that's when they're all discounted (living the high life). I never really got the hype about Moleskines, but I liked the look of my 2011 one sitting on my desk so much, I decided to get another. I got a weekly one because I've no need for a daily (the pages just went to waste).




I love the format: it's a week on a page and then a lined page opposite (perfect for to-do lists, shopping lists...).


Comes with stickers too.

What do you do with your old diaries? I don't want to bin the nicer ones but they're not exactly reusable. I'm not into the idea of keeping them for sentimentality, because a couple of years down the track I'll just find them and get really nostalgic and sad.

P.S. I'm so glad Blogger came out with threaded comments (the option to reply to comments). Can anyone tell me if you get an email notification if someone replies to your comment?

  2. Your new diary is beautiful! The red Moleskine is just lovely. I tend to save my diaries/schedule books in a box in my wardrobe: I never look at them, but they're nice to keep, they range from seriously old Hello Kitty ones from when I was about 8, to some pretty sweet 'current' ones!

  3. This looks like the perfect diary! I love he bright colour (so you'll never lose it - something I seem to do at the most dire moments) and the strap so you can keep everything safely inside. I usually keep all my old diaries as a way of remembering the things I did (I'm not very good at keeping a journal) and also they make nice keepsakes of the year that's passed (and sometimes are a good reflection of things you were in to at that particular time).

    ps - I'm not sure about email notifications. Will have to find out for myself!

    pps - amazing blog overall! Following and can't wait to see more.

  6. Moleskines are lovely, but I prefer the page a day one - everyone's different! Threaded comments are a good idea, but I've no idea abut notifications, I haven't received any yet...

  7. I've got a black moleskin notebook and I love it! A friend bought it for me for my 17th birthday 4 years ago and I only use it for creative things!

    Oh and I don't think you get emailed for a reply to a message...

  9. I had this one last year and the year before in black, and this time I have the smaller soft covered version - once you go Moleskine you never go back - enjoy it!

  10. It looks beautiful! I usually throw out my diaries because I only ever use it up to February and then I abandon it. But this year, I am hoping to do a 365 type thing, I think it's important to record moments and memories and it would be something money can't buy when you read them when you're older :). And I'm not sure, but I sure haven't been getting any replies from messages :S.

  11. Oh I love the feel of new, fresh, crisp papers in my diary!

    I love moleskines. But a few years ago I got a filofax-like thing as a present. And it's really pretty and nice so I just have to buy new pages each year. I used to keep my old ones, but I guess I should throw some of them out. I'll just keep the most inspirational years maybe.. :')

    I think those moleskines are nice to keep, you can even reuse it. A blank page of last year can be a great page to write your shoppinglist on. But yes, you have to rip it out and throw it away eventually... hmm..

  14. That is really pretty. I've been in the hunt for one myself but I can never seem to find one that I like.

    I'm guessing you're in Uni right? Do you use this for uni as well?

    1. I'll be using it for uni as well. But I think I used my diaries more in high school, cause I had more different assessments and subjects then.

  15. I love Moleskin diaries! i still haven't chosen where to get my 2012 one from yet! x

  16. That diary is actually the most gorgeous thing. I'm one of those people who keeps diaries for sentimentality, because I always feel so happy looking at them. It's fascinating to have a record of what you were doing practically every day throughout the year!

  18. pretty! i like the animal printed diaries from typo and got one last year. but since i got my iphone, i've been trying to use it more often and for 2012 it will be paper-free for me! but i will certainly miss all the crazy non-legible comments i made myself; when it's totally obvious i was going through a bad day, which explains all the caps and sharp-edged blurb bubbles all over the pages haha. if anything i'll laugh at myself about how incredibly crazy and human i am xx i would tear some memorable pages out and put them into a scrapbook. dooooo it x

  19. I actually need a new diary and I love this one! Beautiful! I haven't noticed you can reply to blogger comments! But that's great :D

  20. Your diary is so beautiful.
    I love moleskin notebooks but I don't have one at the moment.
    They just feel so special to write in!
    I keep my old diaries because I find it useful when I look at photos from a couple years ago - it helps remember where/when they were taken :-)

  21. That diary is lovely, been meaning to get a moleskin one for ages, but like you I wait for the sales and then when I do try and get one they've all gone! :( I have a floral notebook I'm using at the moment for a personal diary, I love diaries to be chunky :)
    Btw i love your blog, am now following you!
