I love Moleskine notebooks. This is probably not a surprise. They’re a stereotypical designer’s tool, but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with liking well made, beautiful things.

Over the last few years I’ve had a couple of Moleskines. To be fair, I like any beautiful notebook. I just know that now if I need one, I will always buy one of those. They’re hard wearing (my pocket ones live in my handbag), the paper is good quality, they have some lovely special editions, and I love the elastic that keeps them from opening in your bag.

Customised Moleskine notebook

I like customising them too. I got some paint on my first one, so for my second one I decided to do it on purpose and went all out. I like the grungy paint look, and my logo is a butterfly. It worked really nicely and seems to be holding up against my handbag.

The special edition ones are very cool, and always come with a little set of stickers (I also love stickers).
